This finding confirms the association of antidisialosyl antibodies and CIAN regardless of the absence of the M band. These antibodies may have pathogenic relevance;(More)

The Stroop effect is considered as a standard attentional measure to study conflict resolution in humans. The response of the brain to conflict is supposed to change over time and it is impaired in certain pathological conditions. Neuropsychological Stroop test measures have been complemented with electroencephalography (EEG) techniques to evaluate the(More)
