BACKGROUND Activation of amoeboid microglial cells (AMC) and its related inflammatory response have been linked to the periventricular white matter damage after hypoxia in neonatal brain. Hypoxia increases free ATP in the brain and then induces various effects through ATP receptors. The present study explored the possible mechanism in ATP induced AMC(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing neuroimaging studies have revealed grey matter (GM) anomalies of several brain regions by voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies in patients with neuropathic pain. The changes have been suggested to be related to central sensitization. Our aim was to investigate concurrence across VBM studies to identify whether different subtypes of(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known, so far, about the cerebral structural abnormalities in drug-naïve patients with childhood absence epilepsy (CAE). We aimed to investigate regional grey matter (GM) volume differences using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) in patients and closely matched healthy control subjects. METHODS Twenty drug-naïve patients diagnosed with(More)
BACKGROUND An increasing number of neuroimaging studies have revealed gray matter (GM) anomalies of several brain regions by voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies in migraineurs. However, not all the studies reported entirely consistent findings. Our aim is to investigate concurrence across VBM studies to help clarify the structural anomalies underpinning(More)
BACKGROUND Depressive symptoms are frequent in idiopathic restless legs syndrome (RLS). However, little is known, so far, about the neurological basis. The present study aimed to explore the neuroanatomical anomalies in depressed drug-naïve RLS patients using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) analysis. METHODS We recruited 16 drug-naïve idiopathic RLS(More)
Novel bistatic experiments like TerraPAMIR (based on the PAMIR system from FGAN-FHR and the German remote sensing satellite TerraSAR-X) [1] are in preparation. One major goal of such experiments is to prove novel processing algorithms that have been derived recently (confer for example [2], [3]) and are still under development, and to demonstrate that(More)
