OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of cerebellar infarction mimicking vestibular neuritis (VN), the pattern of clinical presentation, and the territory of the cerebellar infarction when it simulates VN. METHODS We studied 240 consecutive cases of isolated cerebellar infarction in the territories of the cerebellar arteries diagnosed by brain MRI from the(More)
AIM Lamotrigine is a neuroprotective agent that is used clinically for the treatment of seizures and neuropathic pain. A significant volume of literature has reported that lamotrigine exerts analgesic effect by blocking Ca(2+) channels. However, little is known regarding the effect of lamotrigine on the intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)). The(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the clinical and radiological features of patients presenting with an acute auditory syndrome as a prodromal symptom of anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) infarction. METHODS 16 consecutive cases of AICA infarction diagnosed by brain magnetic resonance imaging completed a standardised audiovestibular questionnaire and(More)
The periaqueductal gray (PAG) is the main target site of the opioid-induced analgesia. The present study was designed to examine the roles of protein kinase A (PKA) and C (PKC) in the opioid-induced modulation of the currents activated by an inhibitory neurotransmitter, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). The PAG neurons were acutely isolated and(More)
