On the wide range of symptoms in schizophrenia, including alterations of the dopaminergic and/or glutamatergic systems, abnormal neurodevelopment, and the theory of immune system imbalance.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Several available agents in addition to methylene blue are being investigated for bipolar disorder and were in a in a recent review.
In this column, we explore how the judicious use of neural stem cells (NSCs) has led to a research Holy Grail: the creation of research-ready, patient-specific neurons.
This article reviews the differences between dementia types and future directions.
In recent years, we have learned a great deal about posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and its public health implications. From 9/11 to Katrina and the present Iraq war, PTSD has been in the forefront of health concerns and public policy.
The clinical diagnosis of Pick disease can be one of the most difficult facing the neurologist. Those patients found to have lobar atrophy usually present clinically with bouts of irrational behavior, bulimia, marked reductions in speech, abulia, and apathy.
During the past decade, a great deal of research has been undertaken to better understand the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Data from stroke models has shown that the semisynthetic tetracycline antibiotic minocycline can mediate neuroprotection in neurodegenerative diseases by inhibiting caspase-1 and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) activity.
Involuntary Emotional Expression Disorder Often Misdiagnosed and Untreated
In past discussions on brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), parallels were drawn between emerging applications and the idea of the "bionic man." However, a presentation by John P. Donoghue, PhD, during a "Hot Topics" plenary session on May 2 at the 59th Annual Meeting of American Academy of Neurology in Boston suggests that current neural interface technology is much more about the marvels of the human neuron and will than about machinery.
The following must be one of the strangest comments I have ever heard on television. An Iraqi businessman uttered it shortly after a wave of missile strikes during the Gulf War. "The rocket flew down my street and took a left," he said in English. It had smashed into its target, a nearby building--leaving his adjacent shop completely undisturbed.
