Investigating Therapies for Freezing of Gait Targeting the Cognitive, Limbic, and Sensorimotor Domains

Proprioceptive training produced the most consistent indications of benefits in this study, and either the cognitive and proprioceptive treatments appeared to improve different aspects of FOG.

This very readable and accessible book will make a useful supplement to a standard, comprehensive textbook of surgery in the library of practicing surgeons, house officers, and medical students.

Acute Effects

Missions in space beyond the magnetosphere may experience solar particle events (SPE) in which large bursts of particles, mainly protons of a wide range of energies, are emitted from the sun.

The CamPaIGN study of Parkinson's disease: 10-year outlook in an incident population-based cohort

Background Prognosis in Parkinson's disease (PD) remains poorly understood due to a lack of unbiased data on the natural history of treated PD. The CamPaIGN study has been the first to prospectively

Cognitive function in the early phase of Parkinson's disease, a five‐year follow‐up

Presence of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) as a predictor for Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) has been discussed from a clinical perspective, but long‐term follow‐ups of the PD‐MCI guidelines for the prediction of PDD have been sparse.

Cognitive impairment and dementia in Parkinson's disease: Practical issues and management

DBS of the STN and, to a lesser degree, globus pallidus interna (GPi) has consistently been associated with decreased verbal fluency, but significant global cognitive decline is usually not observed in patients who undergo rigorous selection.

Exercise training increases size of hippocampus and improves memory

It is shown that aerobic exercise training increases the size of the anterior hippocampus, leading to improvements in spatial memory, and that increased hippocampal volume is associated with greater serum levels of BDNF, a mediator of neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus.

It is proposed that there are discrete categories of functions within the frontal lobes, of which ‘executive’ functioning is one, and within the executive category, the data do not support the concept of an undifferentiated central executive/supervisory system.
