The ability to maintain central-gaze fixation was studied in 35 patients with unilateral frontal lobe lesions. The stability of central-gaze fixation was tested in 2 oculomotor tasks requiring the suppression of reflexive saccades triggered by the sudden appearance of novel, peripheral visual stimuli. In the first task ('Instructed'), maintenance of gaze(More)
The aim of the present study was to quantify the effect of multisensory rehabilitation on rats' cognition after an experimental brain trauma and to assess its possible clinical implications. The complex intermittent multisensory rehabilitation consisted of currently used major therapeutic procedures targeted at the improvement of cognitive functions;(More)
We tested the influence of erythropoietin (EPO), a basic cytokine in erythropoiesis regulation, on the process of motor function and cognition after focal brain ischemia induced by a local application of endothelin. Endothelin-1 (ET-1) induced short lasting strong vasoconstriction, with described impact on the structure and on the function of neuronal(More)
After global cerebral hypoxia, many patients are severely disabled even after intensive neurorehabilitation. Secondary mechanisms of brain injury as a result of biochemical and physiological events occur within a period of hours to months, and provide a window of opportunity for therapeutic intervention. Erythropoietin (EPO) has been shown to be(More)
