A population-based study of seizures after traumatic brain injuries.
The increased risk of seizures after traumatic brain injury varies greatly according to the severity of the injury and the time since the injury.
The prevalence of dementia in Europe: a collaborative study of 1980-1990 findings. Eurodem Prevalence Research Group.
To obtain age- and gender-specific estimates of the prevalence of dementia in Europe and to study differences in prevalence across countries, we pooled and re-analysed original data of prevalence
The Cost of Epilepsy in the United States: An Estimate from Population‐Based Clinical and Survey Data
1995 estimates of the lifetime and annual cost of epilepsy in the United States using data from patients with epilepsy, and adjusting for the effects of comorbidities and socioeconomic conditions are provided.
Prevalence of parkinsonism and Parkinson's disease in Europe: the EUROPARKINSON Collaborative Study. European Community Concerted Action on the Epidemiology of Parkinson's disease.
Prevalence of both parkinsonism and Parkinson's disease increased with age, without significant differences between men and women, and there was no convincing evidence for differences in prevalence across European countries.
An operational approach to National Institute on Aging–Alzheimer's Association criteria for preclinical Alzheimer disease
A workgroup commissioned by the Alzheimer's Association (AA) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) recently published research criteria for preclinical Alzheimer disease (AD). We performed a
Risk tables for parkinsonism and Parkinson's disease.
Descriptive epidemiology of epilepsy: contributions of population-based studies from Rochester, Minnesota.
Over time, the incidence of epilepsy and of unprovoked seizures decreased in children and increased in the elderly population, and it was high in the first year of life but highest in those age 75 years or older.
Incidence and distribution of parkinsonism in Olmsted County, Minnesota, 1976–1990
Parkinsonism is a common disease among the elderly; its incidence increases steeply with advancing age and is consistently higher in men, while the distribution by type changes with age and gender.
High-resolution whole-genome association study of Parkinson disease.
Independent replication across populations will clarify the role of the genomic loci tagged by these SNPs in conferring PD susceptibility and test a priori biological and genetic hypotheses regarding susceptibility to PD.
Use of a medical records linkage system to enumerate a dynamic population over time: the Rochester epidemiology project.
How the REP links medical records from multiple health care institutions to specific individuals and how residency is confirmed over time is described and evidence for the validity of theREP Census enumeration is provided.
