Clinical Localization of Stroke.
TLDR
The process of clinical localization in relation to the physiology affected by stroke vascular insufficiency is explored and Elements of the neurologic examination are described as they relate to discreet areas in the brain and the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale. Expand
Coma and Encephalopathy
TLDR
The common neurological symptoms of encephalopathy are loss of cognitive function, subtle changes in personality, inability to concentrate, lethargy and depressed consciousness. Expand
The Story of the Development and Adoption of the Glasgow Coma Scale: Part I, The Early years.
TLDR
This historical investigation shows how the contents of the eye, verbal and motor components of the scale were assembled through analysis of previous systems, guided by early clinimetric principles. Expand
The Effect of Ambient Light Conditions on Quantitative Pupillometry
TLDR
Ambient light levels impact pupil parameters in both healthy and critically ill subjects, and changes in NPi under different light conditions are small and more consistent in healthy subjects, but significantly differ in the critically ill. Expand
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging as an Assessment Tool in Critically Ill Patients
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a chronology of the events leading up to and including the publication of the first book in the series, which was originally published in “Biology Letters” (2003). Expand
Rhythmic pupillary change in Cheyne-Stokes respiration
TLDR
A patient is reported showing a rhythmic pupillary change during CheyneStokes respiration, which is associated with the change of serum partial pressure of oxygen and carbon dioxide (pO2 and pCO2). Expand
Time‐dependent risk of seizures in critically ill patients on continuous electroencephalogram
TLDR
The optimal continuous electroencephalographic monitoring duration for seizure detection in critically ill patients is found and this work will help improve the quality of life for patients with epilepsy. Expand
Examination of the Eye Movements of the Patient in Coma
In the diagnostics of the disorders of consciousness (somnolence, sopor, coma) the examination of pupil reactions and the symptoms of the extraocular muscles provide considerable help inExpand
Neuroanatomical Basis of Consciousness
Neurology utilizes a localization-based approach that has firmly established the functional neuroanatomy of consciousness. Clinical disorders can either impair the specific contents of consciousness,Expand
Protocolo diagnóstico etiológico del paciente en coma
TLDR
La reevaluacion neurologica de forma periodica servira para valorar the evolucion del paciente y the respuesta al tratamiento. Expand

Brainstem Dysfunction with Supratentorial Mass Lesions
TLDR
Either of 2 relatively distinct clinical pictures provided the first clear evidence when supratentorial masses were threatening brainstem function, as shown in the results. Expand

Central neurogenic hyperventilation in man.
TLDR
Centrally caused respiratory facilitation was first suggested by the unusually heavy breathing of several patients recovering from the effects of transient exposures to acute anoxia, and the same respiratory pattern was observed in patients with hypoglycemia, severe head injuries, and acute cerebral vascular lesions.

Caloric Vestibular Reactions in Transtentorial Herniation of the Brainstem
TLDR
The vestibulo-ocular reflexes were studied, using ice-water inigation of the ear, in 50 patients with supratentorial space-taking lesions, finding one or more of these signs may be found over quite a long period of time, indicating a more or less severe dysfunction of the brainstem. Expand
