Eye-fixation patterns in homonymous hemianopia and unilateral spatial neglect
Eye-fixation patterns while viewing simple patterns were quantitatively analysed in homonymous hemianopic subjects with or without unilateral spatial neglect (USN), using an eye camera, in order to compensate for their visual field defect. Expand
Visuospatial processes of line bisection and the mechanisms underlying unilateral spatial neglect.
The left hemisphere has the ability to estimate the midpoint of the line through the right visual field and that visuospatial disorder in the line bisection test is attributable to the pathological change in the right hemisphere. Expand
Pure agraphia of kanji due to thrombosis of the Labbé vein.
The case of a 56 year old Japanese male with pure agraphia of kanji (the Japanese morphograms) due to haemorrhagic infarction of the left temporal lobe caused by the rare condition of cortical vein thrombosis of Labbé indicates the necessity for considering thromBosis of the labbé vein when a subcortical haematoma is detected in a temporal lobe on computed tomography of the brain.

Histochemical, biochemical, and contractile properties of red, white, and intermediate fibers.
The data demonstrate that in guinea pigs the soleus, which is composed entirely of intermediate fibers, is a slow-twitch muscle and has the lowest myosin and actomyosin ATPase activities. Expand
Presence of endothelin-1-like immunoreactivity in human cerebrospinal fluid.
Data suggest ET-1 is a neuropeptide secreted from neural tissues in humans that exists in human cerebrospinal fluid and is similar to endothelin-1, which exists in humans with old cerebrovascular disease. Expand
Adult‐onset spinocerebellar syndrome with idiopathic vitamin E deficiency
This adult‐onset spinocerebellar syndrome is due to vitamin E deficiency not caused by malabsorption, and is thought to be due to abnormally accelerated utilization, excretion, or degradation of the vitamin. Expand
DNA rearrangements in Japanese facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy patients: clinical correlations
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is an autosomal dominant muscular disorder in which the disease locus has been mapped to chromosome 4q35-qter. In most patients, the DNA rearrangementsExpand
MRI findings of inferior olives in palatal myoclonus
Increased signal intensity and bilateral enlargement of the inferior olives were recognized in two patients with bilateral PM, pontine haemorrhage and neuro-Behçet disease, and a similar olivary change on the contralateral side was noted in a case of pontine infarction with unilateral PM. Expand
“Quadriceps myopathy”: a clinical variant form of becker muscular dystrophy
The specimen of the muscle biopsy showed typical myopathic features without inflammatory reactions, and the patchy defect of muscular dystrophin was proved by immunohistochemical study. Expand
