  • The Effect of Nocturnal Blood Pressure Changes on the Cognitive State of Patients With Parkinson’s Disease

    Recent data have revealed that cognitive involvement occurs, more or less, in every stage of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (IPD), which is definitely going to cause radical changes in this traditional understanding.

  • Key Role of Promoter Methylation and Inactivation of MCPH1 Gene in Brain Tumors

    Microcephalin (MCPH1/BIRT1) is a putative tumor suppressor gene which has recently seized great attentions in cancer studies.

  • A Case of Hemiplegia Vegetativa Alterna, Paroxysmal Sympathetic Hyperactivity and Ogilvie’s Syndrome: The Role of Central Sympathetic Pathways in Their Pathophysiology

    Hemiplegia vegetativa alterna (HVA) is the clinical syndrome of contralateral hemiparesis, hemisensory loss, hemihyperhidrosis and ipsilateral Horner’s syndrome.

  • Somnolence and Sedation Were Transient Adverse Events for Most Patients Receiving Clobazam Therapy

    Somnolence-related adverse events (AEs) are common with benzodiazepine treatment. Clobazam is a uniquely structured 1,5-benzodiazepine indicated in the US for the adjunctive treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) in patients ≥ 2 years old.

  • Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Questionnaires for Dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment

    Our aim was to explore the role of instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) questionnaires in transition from no cognitive impairment to mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia in comparison to neuropsychological tests.







The Importance of Some Possible Somatic and Environmental Risk Factors for the Development of Migraine

Selective Laser Stimulation of Aδ- or C-Fibers Through Application of a Spatial Filter: A Study in Healthy Volunteers

Pain is perceived through different pathways involving thinly myelinated Aδ-fibers and unmyelinated C-fibers. Aδ-fibers are responsible for a quick, sharp pain, whereas C-fibers relate to a late-onset, burning sensation. Read the Full Text

Anterior Choroidal Artery Aneurysm Associated With Moyamoya Disease
The clinical course and management of anterior choroidal artery (AChoA) aneurysms associated with moyamoya disease (MMD) have not been fully clarified. A 61-year-old man experienced dysarthria. CT revealed hemorrhage in the lateral ventricles, and an aneurysm in the left lateral ventricle. MRI performed 13 months prior to the onset showed no aneurysm. Angiography on admission demonstrated an aneurysm of about 4 mm in diameter on the left anterior choroidal artery. Full Text
