Basal Ganglia Diseases: Diseases of the BASAL GANGLIA including the PUTAMEN; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; claustrum; AMYGDALA; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS. DYSKINESIAS (most notably involuntary movements and alterations of the rate of movement) represent the primary clinical manifestations of these disorders. Common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES; and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.Basal Ganglia: Large subcortical nuclear masses derived from the telencephalon and located in the basal regions of the cerebral hemispheres.Diagnostic Errors: Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.Speech Perception: The process whereby an utterance is decoded into a representation in terms of linguistic units (sequences of phonetic segments which combine to form lexical and grammatical morphemes).Speech: Communication through a system of conventional vocal symbols.Speech Discrimination Tests: Tests of the ability to hear and understand speech as determined by scoring the number of words in a word list repeated correctly.Cochlear Implants: Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.Noise: Any sound which is unwanted or interferes with HEARING other sounds.International Classification of Diseases: A system of categories to which morbid entries are assigned according to established criteria. Included is the entire range of conditions in a manageable number of categories, grouped to facilitate mortality reporting. It is produced by the World Health Organization (From ICD-10, p1). The Clinical Modifications, produced by the UNITED STATES DEPT. OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, are larger extensions used for morbidity and general epidemiological purposes, primarily in the U.S.Databases, Factual: Extensive collections, reputedly complete, of facts and data garnered from material of a specialized subject area and made available for analysis and application. The collection can be automated by various contemporary methods for retrieval. The concept should be differentiated from DATABASES, BIBLIOGRAPHIC which is restricted to collections of bibliographic references.Clinical Coding: Process of substituting a symbol or code for a term such as a diagnosis or procedure. (from Slee's Health Care Terms, 3d ed.)Insurance Claim Review: Review of claims by insurance companies to determine liability and amount of payment for various services. The review may also include determination of eligibility of the claimant or beneficiary or of the provider of the benefit; determination that the benefit is covered or not payable under another policy; or determination that the service was necessary and of reasonable cost and quality.United StatesNeuroleptic Malignant Syndrome: A potentially fatal syndrome associated primarily with the use of neuroleptic agents (see ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENTS) which are in turn associated with dopaminergic receptor blockade (see RECEPTORS, DOPAMINE) in the BASAL GANGLIA and HYPOTHALAMUS, and sympathetic dysregulation. Clinical features include diffuse MUSCLE RIGIDITY; TREMOR; high FEVER; diaphoresis; labile blood pressure; cognitive dysfunction; and autonomic disturbances. Serum CPK level elevation and a leukocytosis may also be present. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1199; Psychiatr Serv 1998 Sep;49(9):1163-72)Antipsychotic Agents: Agents that control agitated psychotic behavior, alleviate acute psychotic states, reduce psychotic symptoms, and exert a quieting effect. They are used in SCHIZOPHRENIA; senile dementia; transient psychosis following surgery; or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; etc. These drugs are often referred to as neuroleptics alluding to the tendency to produce neurological side effects, but not all antipsychotics are likely to produce such effects. Many of these drugs may also be effective against nausea, emesis, and pruritus.Dantrolene: Skeletal muscle relaxant that acts by interfering with excitation-contraction coupling in the muscle fiber. It is used in spasticity and other neuromuscular abnormalities. Although the mechanism of action is probably not central, dantrolene is usually grouped with the central muscle relaxants.Haloperidol: A phenyl-piperidinyl-butyrophenone that is used primarily to treat SCHIZOPHRENIA and other PSYCHOSES. It is also used in schizoaffective disorder, DELUSIONAL DISORDERS, ballism, and TOURETTE SYNDROME (a drug of choice) and occasionally as adjunctive therapy in INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY and the chorea of HUNTINGTON DISEASE. It is a potent antiemetic and is used in the treatment of intractable HICCUPS. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p279)Mutism: The inability to generate oral-verbal expression, despite normal comprehension of speech. This may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES or MENTAL DISORDERS. Organic mutism may be associated with damage to the FRONTAL LOBE; BRAIN STEM; THALAMUS; and CEREBELLUM. Selective mutism is a psychological condition that usually affects children characterized by continuous refusal to speak in social situations by a child who is able and willing to speak to selected persons. Kussmal aphasia refers to mutism in psychosis. (From Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 1994; 62(9):337-44)Loxapine: An antipsychotic agent used in SCHIZOPHRENIA.Chlorpromazine: The prototypical phenothiazine antipsychotic drug. Like the other drugs in this class chlorpromazine's antipsychotic actions are thought to be due to long-term adaptation by the brain to blocking DOPAMINE RECEPTORS. Chlorpromazine has several other actions and therapeutic uses, including as an antiemetic and in the treatment of intractable hiccup.Velopharyngeal Insufficiency: Failure of the SOFT PALATE to reach the posterior pharyngeal wall to close the opening between the oral and nasal cavities. Incomplete velopharyngeal closure is primarily related to surgeries (ADENOIDECTOMY; CLEFT PALATE) or an incompetent PALATOPHARYNGEAL SPHINCTER. It is characterized by hypernasal speech.Voice Quality: That component of SPEECH which gives the primary distinction to a given speaker's VOICE when pitch and loudness are excluded. It involves both phonatory and resonatory characteristics. Some of the descriptions of voice quality are harshness, breathiness and nasality.Huntington Disease: A familial disorder inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and characterized by the onset of progressive CHOREA and DEMENTIA in the fourth or fifth decade of life. Common initial manifestations include paranoia; poor impulse control; DEPRESSION; HALLUCINATIONS; and DELUSIONS. Eventually intellectual impairment; loss of fine motor control; ATHETOSIS; and diffuse chorea involving axial and limb musculature develops, leading to a vegetative state within 10-15 years of disease onset. The juvenile variant has a more fulminant course including SEIZURES; ATAXIA; dementia; and chorea. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1060-4)Phonation: The process of producing vocal sounds by means of VOCAL CORDS vibrating in an expiratory blast of air.Palatal Obturators: Appliances that close a cleft or fissure of the palate.Speech Acoustics: The acoustic aspects of speech in terms of frequency, intensity, and time.Sodium-Phosphate Cotransporter Proteins, Type III: A family of highly conserved and widely expressed sodium-phosphate cotransporter proteins. They are electrogenic sodium-dependent transporters of phosphate that were originally identified as retroviral receptors in HUMANS and have been described in yeast and many other organisms.Calcinosis: Pathologic deposition of calcium salts in tissues.Hypoparathyroidism: A condition caused by a deficiency of PARATHYROID HORMONE (or PTH). It is characterized by HYPOCALCEMIA and hyperphosphatemia. Hypocalcemia leads to TETANY. The acquired form is due to removal or injuries to the PARATHYROID GLANDS. The congenital form is due to mutations of genes, such as TBX1; (see DIGEORGE SYNDROME); CASR encoding CALCIUM-SENSING RECEPTOR; or PTH encoding parathyroid hormone.Movement: The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.Caudate Nucleus: Elongated gray mass of the neostriatum located adjacent to the lateral ventricle of the brain.Substantia Nigra: The black substance in the ventral midbrain or the nucleus of cells containing the black substance. These cells produce DOPAMINE, an important neurotransmitter in regulation of the sensorimotor system and mood. The dark colored MELANIN is a by-product of dopamine synthesis.Dystonia: An attitude or posture due to the co-contraction of agonists and antagonist muscles in one region of the body. It most often affects the large axial muscles of the trunk and limb girdles. Conditions which feature persistent or recurrent episodes of dystonia as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as DYSTONIC DISORDERS. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p77)Ultrasonography, Prenatal: The visualization of tissues during pregnancy through recording of the echoes of ultrasonic waves directed into the body. The procedure may be applied with reference to the mother or the fetus and with reference to organs or the detection of maternal or fetal disease.Echogenic Bowel: A PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY finding of excessively dense fetal bowel due to MECONIUM buildup.Globus Pallidus: The representation of the phylogenetically oldest part of the corpus striatum called the paleostriatum. It forms the smaller, more medial part of the lentiform nucleus.Thalamus: Paired bodies containing mostly GRAY MATTER and forming part of the lateral wall of the THIRD VENTRICLE of the brain.Pathology Department, Hospital: Hospital department which administers and provides pathology services.Thalamic Nuclei: Several groups of nuclei in the thalamus that serve as the major relay centers for sensory impulses in the brain.Parkinson Disease: A progressive, degenerative neurologic disease characterized by a TREMOR that is maximal at rest, retropulsion (i.e. a tendency to fall backwards), rigidity, stooped posture, slowness of voluntary movements, and a masklike facial expression. Pathologic features include loss of melanin containing neurons in the substantia nigra and other pigmented nuclei of the brainstem. LEWY BODIES are present in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus but may also be found in a related condition (LEWY BODY DISEASE, DIFFUSE) characterized by dementia in combination with varying degrees of parkinsonism. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1059, pp1067-75)HandwritingNeurologic Examination: Assessment of sensory and motor responses and reflexes that is used to determine impairment of the nervous system.Neuropsychological Tests: Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.Dopamine Plasma Membrane Transport Proteins: Sodium chloride-dependent neurotransmitter symporters located primarily on the PLASMA MEMBRANE of dopaminergic neurons. They remove DOPAMINE from the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE by high affinity reuptake into PRESYNAPTIC TERMINALS and are the target of DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITORS.Duodenoscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the duodenum.Dopamine: One of the catecholamine NEUROTRANSMITTERS in the brain. It is derived from TYROSINE and is the precursor to NOREPINEPHRINE and EPINEPHRINE. Dopamine is a major transmitter in the extrapyramidal system of the brain, and important in regulating movement. A family of receptors (RECEPTORS, DOPAMINE) mediate its action.Cognition Disorders: Disturbances in mental processes related to learning, thinking, reasoning, and judgment.GreeceStroke: A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)Management Quality Circles: Participation of employees with management as a labor-management team, in decisions pertaining to the operational activities of the organization or industry.Quality Indicators, Health Care: Norms, criteria, standards, and other direct qualitative and quantitative measures used in determining the quality of health care.Brain Ischemia: Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.Acute Disease: Disease having a short and relatively severe course.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.

The use of atypical antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia. (1/321)

Long-term drug treatment of schizophrenia with conventional antipsychotics has limitations: an estimated quarter to one third of patients are treatment-resistant; conventional antipsychotics have only a modest impact upon negative symptoms (poverty of thought, social withdrawal and loss of affect); and adverse effects, particularly extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). Newer, so-called atypical, antipsychotics such as olanzapine, risperidone, sertindole and clozapine (an old drug which was re-introduced in 1990) are claimed to address these limitations. Atypical agents are, at a minimum, at least as effective as conventional drugs such as haloperidol. They also cause substantially fewer extrapyramidal symptoms. However, some other adverse effects are more common than with conventional drugs. For example, clozapine carries a significant risk of serious blood disorders, for which special monitoring is mandatory; it also causes troublesome drowsiness and increased salivation more often than conventional agents. Some atypical agents cause more weight gain or QT prolongation than older agents. The choice of therapy is, therefore, not straightforward. At present, atypical agents represent an advance for patients with severe or intolerable EPS. Most published evidence exists to support the use of clozapine, which has also been shown to be effective in schizophrenia refractory to conventional agents. However, the need for compliance with blood count monitoring and its sedative properties make careful patient selection important. The extent of any additional direct benefit offered by atypical agents on negative symptoms is not yet clear. The lack of a depot formulation for atypical drugs may pose a significant practical problem. To date, only two double-blind studies in which atypical agents were compared directly have been published. Neither provides compelling evidence for the choice of one agent over another. Atypical agents are many times more expensive than conventional drugs. Although drug treatment constitutes only a small proportion of the costs of managing schizophrenia, the additional annual cost of the use of atypical agents in, say, a quarter of the likely U.K. schizophrenic population would be about 56 M pound sterling. There is only limited evidence of cost-effectiveness. Atypical antipsychotics are not currently licensed for other conditions where conventional antipsychotics are commonly used, such as behaviour disturbance or dementia in the elderly. Their dose, and place in treatment in such cases have yet to be determined.  (+info)

Bilateral basal ganglial necrosis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in a child with Kostmann syndrome. (2/321)

A 6-year-old girl underwent allogeneic BMT from a matched sibling donor for the treatment of Kostmann syndrome. She suddenly became drowsy on day 30 after BMT, and lost consciousness 2 days later. Cranial CT scan showed symmetrical lesions suggesting bilateral necrosis in the basal ganglia. Clinical and laboratory investigations failed to reveal any evidence of neurometabolic disease.  (+info)

Non-typhoid Salmonella meningitis complicated by a infarction of basal ganglia. (3/321)

A previously healthy 16-month-old Korean girl with symptoms of fever, vomiting, and generalized tonic seizure was diagnosed to have Group D non-typhoid Salmonella meningitis. The patient was treated with ceftriaxone (100 mg/kg/day) and amikin (22.5 mg/kg/day) initially and ciprofloxacin (30 mg/kg/day) was added later because of clinical deterioration and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Brain CT performed on the second day showed a well-demarcated low density lesion in the right lentiform nucleus and both caudate nuclei, without evidence of increased intracranial pressure. MRI performed on the 11th day confirmed CT scan findings as well as right subdural fluid collection, brain atrophy, and ventriculomegaly. She underwent subdural drainage and later ventriculo-peritoneal shunt operation. Despite receiving intensive treatment, she still has severe neurologic sequelae. Our case shows that infarctions of basal ganglia and thalami are not specific for tuberculous meningitis and that meningitis complicated by infarction is indicative of grave prognosis.  (+info)

Identification of a locus on chromosome 14q for idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (Fahr disease). (4/321)

Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) is a neurodegenerative syndrome that is associated with a variety of movement disorders and neurobehavioral and cognitive manifestations. Despite numerous clinical, pathological, and biochemical investigations, its etiology remains unknown. We have identified a multigenerational family with dominantly inherited IBGC and, in 24 members of this family, performed a whole-genome scan using polymorphic microsatellite markers to identify the first chromosomal locus for this disorder (IBGC1). A maximum two-point LOD score of 3.37 was obtained at marker D14S1014, and a maximum multipoint LOD score of 4.95 was obtained between D14S75 and D14S306. The minimal haplotype shared by affected patients extended over a 17.1-cM region bounded by D14S70 and D14S66, which is potentially further narrowed to a 13.3-cM region by a recombination observed in a patient with probable affected status. The age at onset appeared to be decreasing by an average of >20 years with each transmission, which is consistent with genetic anticipation.  (+info)

Dyspraxia in a patient with corticobasal degeneration: the role of visual and tactile inputs to action. (5/321)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the roles of visual and tactile information in a dyspraxic patient with corticobasal degeneration (CBD) who showed dramatic facilitation in miming the use of a tool or object when he was given a tool to manipulate; and to study the nature of the praxic and neuropsychological deficits in CBD. METHODS: The subject had clinically diagnosed CBD, and exhibited alien limb behaviour and striking ideomotor dyspraxia. General neuropsychological evaluation focused on constructional and visuospatial abilities, calculation, verbal fluency, episodic and semantic memory, plus spelling and writing because impairments in this domain were presenting complaints. Four experiments assessed the roles of visual and tactile information in the facilitation of motor performance by tools. Experiment 1 evaluated the patient's performance of six limb transitive actions under six conditions: (1) after he described the relevant tool from memory, (2) after he was shown a line drawing of the tool, (3) after he was shown a real exemplar of the tool, (4) after he watched the experimenter perform the action, (5) while he was holding the tool, and (6) immediately after he had performed the action with the tool but with the tool removed from his grasp. Experiment 2 evaluated the use of the same six tools when the patient had tactile but no visual information (while he was blindfolded). Experiments 3 and 4 assessed performance of actions appropriate to the same six tools when the patient had either neutral or inappropriate tactile feedback-that is, while he was holding a non-tool object or a different tool. RESULTS: Miming of tool use was not facilitated by visual input; moreover, lack of visual information in the blindfolded condition did not reduce performance. The principal positive finding was a dramatic facilitation of the patient's ability to demonstrate object use when he was holding either the appropriate tool or a neutral object. Tools inappropriate to the requested action produced involuntary performance of the stimulus relevant action. CONCLUSIONS: Tactile stimulation was paramount in the facilitation of motor performance in tool use by this patient with CBD. This outcome suggests that tactile information should be included in models which hypothesise modality specific inputs to the action production system. Significant impairments in spelling and letter production that have not previously been reported in CBD have also been documented.  (+info)

Progressive frontal gait disturbance with atypical Alzheimer's disease and corticobasal degeneration. (6/321)

OBJECTIVES: The clinical neuropsychological, neuroradiological, and neuropathological description of two patients presenting with a frontal gait disturbance. METHODS: Clinical case note review, neuropsychological assessment, functional imaging with (15)O(2) and (18)F-fluorodopa PET, and neuropathology. RESULTS: Both patients presented with frontal gait impairment and only later developed more widespread cognitive impairment. In both cases (15)O(2) PET disclosed focal hypometabolism in the medial frontal lobes and in one patient (18)F-fluorodopa uptake into the caudate and putamen was normal. The neuropathological examination in one patient showed Alzheimer's histopathology together with large swollen eosinophilic neurons characteristic of corticobasal degeneration, which were particularly prominent in the medial frontal lobes. CONCLUSION: Focal degeneration of the medial frontal lobes may present as an isolated gait disturbance and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients who present without an obvious structural abnormality on neuroimaging.  (+info)

Extrapyramidal type rigidity in rheumatoid arthritis. (7/321)

OBJECTIVES: We had noted cogwheel rigidity in a number of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Based on this finding, we aimed to investigate formally the presence of rigidity and cogwheeling in RA patients. Our secondary aim was to survey the co-existence of RA and Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS: A total of 87 consecutive patients with a diagnosis of RA, 78 patients with PD and 67 otherwise healthy patients attending a dedicated headache clinic participated in the study. RESULTS: Rigidity was observed in 24% of RA, 60% of PD and 2% of headache patients. The frequency among the RA patients was significantly higher compared to that of patients with headache (chi 2 = 15.2; P = 0.00009). The frequency of PD among the RA patients was 2/87 (2.3%), while the frequency of RA among the PD patients was 6/78 (7.7%). CONCLUSION: Rigidity can be observed in approximately a quarter of patients with RA.  (+info)

Enhanced association of mutant triosephosphate isomerase to red cell membranes and to brain microtubules. (8/321)

In a Hungarian family with triosephosphate isomerase (TPI; D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate keto-isomerase, EC 5.3.1.1) deficiency, two germ-line identical, but phenotypically differing compound heterozygote brothers (one of them with neurological disorder) have been identified with the same very low (<5%) TPI activity and 20- or 40-fold higher erythrocyte dihydroxyacetone phosphate levels as compared with normal controls. Our present studies with purified TPI and hemolysates revealed the binding of TPI, and the binding of human wild-type and mutant TPIs in hemolysate, to the red cell membrane, and the interference of binding with other hemolysate proteins. The binding of the mutant TPI is enhanced as compared with the wild-type enzyme. The increased binding is influenced by both the altered structure of the mutant and the changes in the red cell membrane. Compared with binding of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, the isomerase binding is much less sensitive to ionic strength or blocking of the N-terminal tail of the band-3 transmembrane protein. The binding of TPIs to the membrane decreases the isomerase activity, resulting in extremely high dihydroxyacetone phosphate levels in deficient cells. In cell-free brain extract, tubulin copolymerizes with TPI and with other cytosolic proteins forming highly decorated microtubules as shown by immunoblot analysis with anti-TPI antibody and by electron microscopic images. The efficacy order of TPI binding to microtubules is propositus > brother without neurological disorder > normal control. This distinct microcompartmentation of mutant proteins may be relevant in the development of the neurodegenerative process in TPI deficiency and in other, more common neurological diseases.  (+info)

This gene encodes a ubiquitously expressed transmembrane thiamine transporter that lacks folate transport activity. Mutations in this gene cause biotin-responsive basal ganglia disease (BBGD); a recessive disorder manifested in childhood that progresses to chronic encephalopathy, dystonia, quadriparesis, and death if untreated. Patients with BBGD have bilateral necrosis in the head of the caudate nucleus and in the putamen. Administration of high doses of biotin in the early progression of the disorder eliminates pathological symptoms while delayed treatment results in residual paraparesis, mild cognitive disability, or dystonia. Administration of thiamine is ineffective in the treatment of this disorder. Experiments have failed to show that this protein can transport biotin. Mutations in this gene also cause a Wernickes-like encephalopathy.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010 ...
Involvement of the basal ganglia in AIDS encephalopathy is well documented in both adults and children. The pathology remains obscure. A type of inflammation with increased vascularity and disruption of the blood-brain barrier has been postulated. Calcification of the basal ganglia in encephalopathic HIV / AIDS children has been relatively well documented. Only two adult HIV cases with basal ganglion calcification (BGC) have been reported in the literature. At our institution over the past few years, we have noted an increasing number of adult AIDS patients with neurological complications, demonstrating BGC on CT examination. A retrospective review was done. Ninety-six adult cases were identified with BGC. Of these, 38 patients were HIV positive. Review of the 38 HIV-positive cases revealed that all of the patients presented clinically with encephalopathic symptoms, and all showed BGC associated with varying degrees of atrophy on CT scan. Reports of paediatric HIV cases with BGC and encephalopathy have

This PhD thesis is a study of cortical electrophysiology in two basal ganglia disorders: Parkinsons disease (PD) and dystonia. Two diseases were chosen as being representative of hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders, respectively. In addition, current treatments seem to be imperfect to control many aspects of both diseases, hence the interest in exploring potential new therapeutic targets. PD and dystonia are basal ganglia diseases, but there is growing body of evidence of impaired cortical function and particularly of abnormal sensorimotor cortical plasticity in both disorders. We however still lack knowledge about functional significance of these cortical changes. Are they maladaptive or compensatory or of little functional significance? Techniques of Transcranial Magnetic (TMS) were used to determine 1) if clinical asymmetry of early PD is reflected in hemispheric asymmetry of sensorimotor cortical plasticity and intracortical inhibition, and 2) how these electrophysiological ...

The first videotape begins with an overview of the nervous system appropriate for nursing students or newcomers to a neuroscience setting. Lasting 20 minutes, it presents a clear, systematic examination addressing normal parameters, related terminology, and the rationale for focusing the examination on patient history. Think "systems," the narrator encourages, when trying to identify the source of a neurological deficit. This videotape further engages the viewer by covering some of the resulting signs and symptoms of deficits. Examination of cranial nerves, specifically extraocular eye movements, includes the statement that diplopia is maximal in the area of the neurological deficit. Other examples include the fact that the uvula will deviate away from the side of the lesion and that, in the assessment of movement, rigidity is a sign of basal ganglia disease. Terminology is not consistently provided. For example, in the discussion of a position sense of a digit, the term proprioception is ...
Coarse facial features or "coarse facies" describes a constellation of facial features that are present in many inborn errors of metabolism. Features include: large, bulging head prominent scalp veins "saddle-like, flat bridged nose with broad, fleshy tip" large lips and tongue small, widely spaced and/or malformed teeth hypertrophic alveolar ridges and/or gums Heads tend to be longer than normal from front to back, with a bulging forehead. This is because of the earlier than normal or premature fusion of skull bones in an affected individual. Several conditions are associated with coarse facial features.

Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification, also known as Fahr disease, is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement. Through the use of CT scans, calcifications are seen primarily in the basal ganglia and in other areas such as the cerebral cortex. Symptoms of this disease include deterioration of motor functions and speech, seizures, and other involuntary movement. Other symptoms are headaches, dementia, and vision impairment. Characteristics of Parkinsons Disease are also similar to Fahrs Syndrome. The disease usually manifests itself in the third to fifth decade of life but may appear in childhood or later in life. It usually presents with clumsiness, fatigability, unsteady gait, slow or slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, involuntary movements or muscle cramping. Seizures of various types are common. Neuropsychiatric symptoms, which may be the first or the most prominent ...

Basal ganglia calcification, idiopathic, 4 (IBGC4) [MIM:615007]: A form of basal ganglia calcification, an autosomal dominant condition characterized by symmetric calcification in the basal ganglia and other brain regions. Affected individuals can either be asymptomatic or show a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric symptoms, including parkinsonism, dystonia, tremor, ataxia, dementia, psychosis, seizures, and chronic headache. Serum levels of calcium, phosphate, alkaline phosphatase and parathyroid hormone are normal. The neuropathological hallmark of the disease is vascular and pericapillary calcification, mainly of calcium phosphate, in the affected brain areas. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:23255827, ECO:0000269,PubMed:24065723, ECO:0000269,PubMed:26599395}.

Calcifications in the basal ganglia are a common incidental finding and are sometimes inherited as an autosomal dominant trait (idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC)). Recently, mutations in the PDGFRB gene coding for the platelet-derived growth factor receptor β (PDGF-Rβ) were linked to IBGC. Here we identify six families of different ancestry with nonsense and missense mutations in the gene encoding PDGF-B, the main ligand for PDGF-Rβ. We also show that mice carrying hypomorphic Pdgfb alleles develop brain calcifications that show age-related expansion. The occurrence of these calcium depositions depends on the loss of endothelial PDGF-B and correlates with the degree of pericyte and blood-brain barrier deficiency. Thus, our data present a clear link between Pdgfb mutations and brain calcifications in mice, as well as between PDGFB mutations and IBGC in humans. ...

The predominant deficit in this case of FD was a severe impairment of executive functions, mainly including planning, problem solving, and set shifting capacities, but also flexibility and divergent thinking. Furthermore, episodic memory and attentional functions were also grossly compromised. In contrast, basic and higher motor functions, language and basic perceptual abilities remained unimpaired. In addition, the patient experienced a marked personality change with apathy, intermittent disinhibition, irritability, aggression, compulsive features, and anxiety. The functional imaging correlate of the basal ganglia calcification was a regional hypometabolism of the basal ganglia and frontal brain as shown by FDG-PET, whereas brain regions located more posteriorly appeared to have normal metabolism. Hypometabolism in both frontal lobes was extensive and included dorsolateral, ventromedial, and orbitofrontal areas.. The origin of this patients disorder is not clear. Combinations of FD with other ...
Prism adaptation is a form of visuomotor learning in which the visual and motor systems need to be adjusted because a visual perturbation is produced by horizontally displacing prisms. Despite being known for over two centuries, the neuronal substrates of this phenomenon are not yet completely understood. In this article the possible role of the basal ganglia in this kind of learning was analysed through a study of Huntingtons and Parkinsons disease patients. A throwing technique requiring the use of open loop feedback was used. The variables analysed were visuomotor performance, adaptation rate and magnitude, and the after-effect. The results clearly showed that both Huntingtons and Parkinsons disease groups learned at the same rate as control subjects. In addition, despite having a disturbed visuomotor performance, both experimental groups showed the same adaptation magnitude as the control group. Finally, the after-effect, which is measured after removing the prisms, is reduced in both ...
We studied the discharge pattern of motor units (MUs) from the first dorsal interosseous muscle during slight stationary isometric contraction. In six controls, seven patients with parkinsonism, and five patients with choreic disorders, we analyzed 78 MUs. About one-half of the MUs in both patient groups fired irregularly as shown by interval histograms, joint interval histograms, and corresponding statistical calculations. Cross-correlation techniques revealed a characteristic type of MU synchronization in parkinsonism. Analysis of the MU discharge pattern can be useful in clinical assessment of these disorders.. ...

Bradykinesia refers to slowness of movement and is the most characteristic clinical feature of PD, although it may also be seen in other disorders, including depression. Bradykinesia is a hallmark of basal ganglia disorders, and it encompasses difficulties with planning, initiating and executing movement and with performing sequential and simultaneous tasks.22 The initial manifestation is often slowness in performing activities of daily living and slow movement and reaction times.23 24 This may include difficulties with tasks requiring fine motor control (eg, buttoning, using utensils). Other manifestations of bradykinesia include loss of spontaneous movements and gesturing, drooling because of impaired swallowing,25 monotonic and hypophonic dysarthria, loss of facial expression (hypomimia) and decreased blinking, and reduced arm swing while walking. Given that bradykinesia is one of the most easily recognisable symptoms of PD, it may become apparent before any formal neurological examination. ...

Introduction: There is shortage of specialists for the diagnosis of children with neuromotor impairments (NMIs), especially in resource limited settings. Existing International Clinical Epidemiology Network (INCLEN) instrument for diagnosing NMI have been validated for children aged 2-9 years. The current study modified the same including wider symptomatology and age group (1 month to 18 years). Methods: The Modified INCLEN diagnostic tool (INDT) was developed by a team of experts by modifying the existing tool to widen the age range (1 month to 18 years) and include broader symptomatology (inclusion of milestones from the first 2 years of life and better elucidation of cerebellar and extrapyramidal features) in a tertiary care teaching hospital of North India between January and April 2015 ...

Infantile myofibromatosis (IM), previously known as congenital generalized fibromatosis, is characterized by the development of tumors in various tissues and organs. IM affects mostly infants and young children. Although tumors are usually detected at birth or during the first two years of life, uterine and adult onsets have been also reported (Chung and Enzinger 1981). Two main types of IM, solitary and multicentric, are distinguished. Each type is further divided in two groups based on the presence or absence of visceral involvement (Wiswell et al. 1988). The solitary type is characterized by the development of a single nodule mainly in the bones, striated muscle, skin, or subcutaneous tissues. In rare cases, solitary tumors have been reported in the viscera. The multicentric type is characterized by the development of multiple nodules in various organs. Visceral involvement is common in this type. The lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, liver, and bones are most commonly affected. ...

Patients with certain neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinsons disease and dementia show excessive accumulation of iron in the brain. It has been postulated that these iron deposits damage neurons by inducing oxidative stress, but whether they are a cause or consequence of the disease process is unclear.. Curtis et al. report that the causative mutation in a family with adult-onset basal ganglia disease lies in a gene encoding a subunit of ferritin, a protein that functions in both storage and detoxification of iron. In a study of patients with Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, an early-onset neurodegenerative disorder, Zhou et al. find that the culprit gene encodes pantothenate kinase (PANK), an essential regulatory enzyme in coenzyme A biosynthesis. The disease-associated mutations in PANK might alter iron levels in the brain indirectly through effects on cysteine levels. Further studies of these new disease genes will be needed to understand the role iron metabolism plays in ...

Familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) is a genetic condition with a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric symptoms, including parkinsonism and dementia. Here, we identified mutations in SLC20A2, encoding the type III sodium-dependent phosphate transporter 2 (PiT2), in IBGC-affected families of varied ancestry, and we observed significantly impaired phosphate transport activity for all assayed PiT2 mutants in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Our results implicate altered phosphate homeostasis in the etiology of IBGC ...

Fahrs disease or syndrome is a rare inherited or sporadic neurological disorder with a prevalence of less than 1/1,000,000 [1]. Recently, a number of genes have been identified, known to be associated with familial primary brain calcification (PFBC), causing Fahrs disease or syndrome [1]. These genes are SCL20A2, PDGFB, PDGFRB and XPR1, and a significant correlation was found between the presence of headache in PDGFB mutations, and parkinsonism with SLC20A2 [2].. We present the case of a 49-year-old woman with Greenlandic Inuit origin and an otherwise unremarkable medical history. She initially presented with symptoms of headache and diplopia. She was referred to a CT scan of the cerebrum, which showed bilateral calcifications of the thalamus and corpus striatum (Figures 1 and 2) compatible with Fahrs syndrome [1]. Shortly after, the patient developed tremor of the right hand, fatigability especially of her right side, dizziness, and minor cognitive decline.. ...

Fahrs Syndrome is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement, including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex. Symptoms of the disorder may include deterioration of motor function, dementia, seizures, headache, dysarthria (poorly articulated speech),spasticity (stiffness of the limbs) and spastic paralysis, eye impairments, and athetosis (involuntary, writhing movements). Fahrs Syndrome can also include symptoms characteristic of Parkinsons disease such as tremors, muscle rigidity, a mask-like facial appearance, shuffling gait, and a "pill-rolling" motion of the fingers. These symptoms generally occur later in the development of the disease. More common symptoms include dystonia (disordered muscle tone) and chorea (involuntary, rapid, jerky movements). Age of onset is typically in the 40s or 50s, although it can occur at any time in childhood or adolescence.. ...

Dose-Related Adverse Reactions Schizophrenia Dose response relationships for the incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events were evaluated from four trials in adult patients with schizophrenia comparing various fixed doses (2, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 mg/day) of oral aripiprazole to placebo. This analysis, stratified by study, indicated that the only adverse reaction to have a possible dose response relationship, and then most prominent only with 30 mg, was somnolence [including sedation]; (incidences were placebo, 7.1%; 10 mg, 8.5%; 15 mg, 8.7%; 20 mg, 7.5%; 30 mg, 12.6%). In the study of pediatric patients (13 to 17 years of age) with schizophrenia, three common adverse reactions appeared to have a possible dose response relationship: extrapyramidal disorder (incidences were placebo, 5.0%; 10 mg, 13.0%; 30 mg, 21.6%); somnolence (incidences were placebo, 6.0%; 10 mg, 11.0%; 30 mg, 21.6%); and tremor (incidences were placebo, 2.0%; 10 mg, 2.0%; 30 mg, 11.8%).

The basal ganglia consists of masses of subcortical grey matter deep within the cerebral hemispheres. Along with the cerebellum, the basal ganglia controls movement and posture, adjusting the body to do certain things, as well as inhibits unwanted movement. Lesions in the basal ganglia cause disturbances in motor activity. Information is sent from the motor cortex to the basal ganglia and is relayed back via the thalamus. Recent studies suggest that the basal ganglia contains five segregated circuits for different functions of behavior. Each involves separate regions within the basal ganglia and the thalamus.
Neurology - Students will learn how to correctly interpret neurological signs and symptoms as either anatomically and functionally normal or pathological. They will also learn notions that will enable them to define syndromes related to pathological modifications of specific structures of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems (e.g., pyramidal syndrome, extrapyramidal syndrome, etc.). Finally, the course will enable students to get to know the major groups of neurological disorders (e.g., cerebrovascular diseases, infectious CNS diseases, etc.).. ...

Take Symmetrel exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended dose for treating or preventing the flu in adults is 100 mg twice daily or 200 mg once daily. Taking it twice a day may decrease the chance of side effects. A lower dose (100 mg once daily) is recommended for people age 65 years or older. For children age 9 and older, the recommended dose is 100 mg twice daily. For flu treatment, Symmetrel should be started as soon as possible within 24 to 48 hours of the start of flu symptoms, and it should be continued for 24 to 48 hours after the symptoms go away. For treating Parkinsons disease the recommended dose is 100 mg twice a day, if no other Parkinsons medications are used. Your doctor may increase your dose up to a maximum of 400 mg total per day. The recommended dose for treating extrapyramidal symptoms caused by other medications is 100 mg twice daily. Your doctor may increase your dose up to a total of 300 mg per day.

0033]There is also a strong association of obsessive compulsive disorder with movement disorders. Obsessive compulsive disorder is associated with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (Tourette syndrome), as well as with several other basal ganglia diseases including Sydenhams chorea and Huntingtons disease. There is strong evidence of a link between obsessive compulsive disorder and motor tics. While estimates of the occurrence of obsessive compulsive disorder in patients with Tourette syndrome vary from 5% to over 50%, all estimates are significantly higher than the prevalence of obsessive compulsive disorder in the general population. Shared clinical features between obsessive compulsive disorder and Tourette syndrome include "waxing and waning of symptoms, early age at onset, ego-dystonic behavior (i.e., behavior contrary to an individuals conscious preferences), worsening with depression and anxiety, and their occurrence in the same families" (Robertson and Yakely, supra). Genetic studies ...
We studied a 70-year-old woman with a unique combination of hyperkinesia and mutism. These findings differed from akinetic mutism because there was continuous bilateral ballism and dystonia--hence the term hyperkinetic mutism. CT demonstrated bilateral calcifications in the basal ganglia, and MRI indicated bilateral watershed infarcts. Different dopaminergic mechanisms may underlie the hyperkinesia and mutism.

During his third cycle of therapy, approximately four months after initiating cART and six weeks after starting immunochemotherapy, he began to decline neurologically. Over ten days, he developed somnolence, worsening aphasia and right arm weakness, new right extrapyramidal symptoms, and confusion. At clinical nadir he was obtunded, requiring intubation for airway protection, with intact cranial reflexes but minimal response to painful stimuli. He was afebrile. Electroencephalogram showed generalized slowing. Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) was 96.8 mg/L (,3.0 mg/L). Brain MRI showed increased enhancement associated with the left basal ganglia lesion (Figure 1) but no other new pathology. CSF evaluation (Table 1, Protocol Week 8) showed 30 WBC/mL and elevated protein. All microbiology studies were negative. No lymphoma was identified by cytopathology.. Flow cytometry was also performed to evaluate for lymphoma and other lymphocyte subsets. CSF was immediately stabilized in RPMI with 10% fetal ...
Clotiapine (Entumine) is an atypical antipsychotic of the dibenzothiazepine chemical class. It was first introduced in a few European countries (namely, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Switzerland), Argentina, Taiwan and Israel in 1970. Some sources regard clotiapine as a typical antipsychotic rather than atypical due to its high incidence of extrapyramidal side effects compared to the atypicals like clozapine and quetiapine, to which it is structurally related.Despite its profile of a relatively high incidence of extrapyramidal side effects it has demonstrated efficacy in treatment-resistant schizophrenic patients according to a number of psychiatrists with clinical experience with it, some weak clinical evidence supports this view too. ...

However, as can be noted in Table Selected side effects of commonly used antipsychotic medications, considerable variation in the… Read More ». ...
The globus pallidus (Latin for "pale globe") also known as paleostriatum, is a sub-cortical structure of the brain. It is part of the telencephalon, but retains close functional ties with the subthalamus - both of which are part of the extrapyramidal motor system. The globus pallidus is a major component of the basal ganglia core along with the striatum and its direct target, the substantia nigra. The latter are made up of similar neuronal elements, have similar afferents from the dorsal striatum, and have a similar synaptology; neither receives cortical afferents.. Function. The globus pallidus is a structure in the brain involved in the regulation of voluntary movement. It is part of the basal ganglia, which, among many other things, regulate movements that occur on the subconscious level. If the globus pallidus is damaged, it can cause movement disorders, as its regulatory function will be impaired. There may be cases in which damage is deliberately induced, as in a procedure known as a ...
Basal ganglia of brain. Coloured Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan of a healthy brain, viewed at basal ganglia level. The colour-coded scan through this cerebral layer shows brain activity: from low (blue) to high (yellow). At centre and centre right are two pairs of basal ganglia (yellow ovals), nerve cell clusters deep in the cerebrum & upper part of the brainstem. The basal ganglia play a vital part in producing smooth, continuous muscular actions and in stopping and starting movement. PET scanning relies on a radioactive tracer injected into the bloodstream, to reveal metabolic activity in the brain. - Stock Image P332/0202

Fundamentally, the principal connections made by the extrapyramidal system are via closed circuits that receive input from the cerebral cortex and project reciprocally back to the cerebral cortex (figure 25). When considering the motor functions of the extrapyramidal system, the greatest input arises from the premotor cortex. This portion of the cortex is most involved in planning, patterning and initiating movements. The circuit passes through several nuclei in the system, each of which is involved in processing. There are two described pathways for transmission of signals through the basal ganglia, a direct and an indirect pathway (figure 25). These pathways have competing effects on movement and there is often thought to be a balance between these systems that is involved in establishing and regulating tone. In both the direct and indirect pathways, the caudate and putamen represent the first synapse in the system. These nuclei receive afferent nerve fibers from virtually all portions of the ...

The review by Kennedy et al provides useful information on the effectiveness of risperidone compared with conventional neuroleptics (mainly haloperidol) in patients with chronic schizophrenia. The reviewers increased the robustness of their conclusions by including only randomised controlled trials. One of the main contributions of the review is to highlight the clear limitations of the primary studies. Most of the trials studied patients for ,12 weeks and all but 1 trial randomised only patients with chronic schizophrenia and used a cut off of 20% in rating scales (BPRS and PANSS) to measure improvement. No suitable information regarding clinically meaningful outcomes such as relapse, hospitalisation, quality of life, social functioning, or employment status of the patients was provided by the original trials. The absence of cost data precluded an analysis of the cost effectiveness of risperidone. Additionally, although risperidone seems to cause fewer EPS, this medication was compared with a ...

Methods: Three patients with GRN A9D mutations were evaluated clinically and came to autopsy with subsequent neuropathologic examination. Results: The clinical diagnoses of patients with GRN A9D mutations were amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, atypical extrapyramidal disorder, and behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia. Immunohistochemistry for TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) revealed variability in morphology and distribution of pathology. ...
Background: The authors have identified and studied a large kindred in which frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. The trait has been mapped to the pericentromeric region of chromosome 3. Methods: The authors report on the clinical, neuroimaging, neuropsychological, and pathologic features in this unique pedigree collected during 17 years of study. Results: Twenty-two individuals in three generations have been affected; the age at onset varies between 46 and 65 years. The disease presents with a predominantly frontal lobe syndrome but there is also evidence for temporal and dominant parietal lobe dysfunction. Late in the illness individuals develop a florid motor syndrome with pyramidal and extrapyramidal features. Structural imaging reveals generalized cerebral atrophy; H-2 O-15-PET scanning in two individuals relatively early and late in the disease shows a striking global reduction in cerebral blood flow affecting all lobes. On macroscopic pathologic ...
The basal ganglia refer to a group of closely connected structures including the striatum (the caudate and the putamen), the globus pallidus, the substantia nigra and the subthalamic nucleus.. It seems to be generally agreed that the basal ganglia have something to do with the creation and execution of motor plans. Just watch a person with a typical basal ganglion affliction, such as Parkinsons disease, characterized by difficulty in starting or stopping the walking sequence, and realize how profundly these nuclei are involved in daily life.. In addition to their role in control of movement and posture, it now appears that the basal ganglia also play a more complex (cognitive) aspects of behavior and may be involved in limbic functions.. They are responsible not only for the integration of motor activity but probably also for the programming, beginning and termination of such activity. There are other definitions of the term basal ganglia: the archistriatum, the paleostriatum, and the ...
In temporal information processing, both the cerebellum and the basal ganglia play essential roles. In particular, for interval timing learning, the cerebellum exhibits temporally localized activity around the onset of the unconditioned stimulus, whereas the basal ganglia represents the passage of time by their ramping-up activity from the onset of the conditioned stimulus to that of the unconditioned stimulus. We present a unified computational model of the cerebellum and the basal ganglia for the interval timing learning task. We report that our model reproduces the localized activity in the cerebellum and the gradual increase of the activity in the basal ganglia. These results suggest that the cerebellum and the basal ganglia play different roles in temporal information processing.. Date: 09/11/2018 ...
Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) couple the actions of glutamate to intracellular second messenger systems through G-proteins. The mGluRs play an important role in the regulation of basal ganglia function. Ligand binding studies have revealed that the basal ganglia contain at least two pharmacological types of metabotropic binding sites. Agonists of mGluRs can affect both in vitro electrophysiologic responses of striatal neurons and motor behavior in vivo. Recently, cDNAs encoding five mGluRs have been cloned, each with distinct structural and pharmacological properties. In order to elucidate the function of these receptors in the biology of the extrapyramidal motor system, we have used in situ hybridization to examine the regional and cellular expression patterns of mGluR1-mGluR5 in the adult rat basal ganglia. In the striatum, all of these mGluRs were present in widely varying relative densities and cellular patterns. MGluR5 was particularly prominent, and exhibited a heterogeneous ...

There has been evidence that ziprasidone is efficacious in decreasing the magnitude of both positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia, and also effective in the treatment of depressive symptoms. It shows good tolerance with low incidence of extrapyramidal side effects and does not significantly influence body weight. As it has been shown that ziprasidone is efficacious and safe in patients who have been pretreated with other antipsychotic that has to be withdrawn either due to the side effects or not satisfied efficacy. The purpose of the study was to provide further evidence for the efficacy and safety of patients with schizophrenia and allow for psychiatrists in Hungary to gain experience with the drug before wide commercial availability ...
Diazepam, a benzodiazepine, generates the same active metabolite as chlordiazepoxide and clorazepate. In animals, diazepam appears to act on parts of the limbic system, the thalamus and hypothalamus, and induces calming effects. Diazepam, unlike chlorpromazine and reserpine, has no demonstrable peripheral autonomic blocking action, nor does it produce extrapyramidal side effects; however, animals treated with diazepam do have a transient ataxia at higher doses. Diazepam was found to have transient cardiovascular depressor effects in dogs. Long-term experiments in rats revealed no disturbances of endocrine function. Injections into animals have produced localized irritation of tissue surrounding injection sites and some thickening of veins after intravenous use ...
The approval was based on a set of six controlled clinical trials that included over 2,700 adults with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Vraylar was shown to reduce the symptoms of both disorders compared with placebo, and was fairly well tolerated, with the most commonly reported adverse reactions being extrapyramidal symptoms and restlessness (akathisia). ...
Neurophysiological studies have identified a number of brain regions critically involved in solving the problem of action selection or decision making. In the case of highly practiced tasks, these regions include cortical areas hypothesized to integrate evidence supporting alternative actions and the basal ganglia, hypothesized to act as a central switch in gating behavioral requests. However, despite our relatively detailed knowledge of basal ganglia biology and its connectivity with the cortex and numerical simulation studies demonstrating selective function, no formal theoretical framework exists that supplies an algorithmic description of these circuits. This article shows how many aspects of the anatomy and physiology of the circuit involving the cortex and basal ganglia are exactly those required to implement the computation defined by an asymptotically optimal statistical test for decision making: the multihypothesis sequential probability ratio test (MSPRT). The resulting model of basal ...

Background: Wilsons disease is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder resulting from an abnormality of copper metabolism. The excessive accumulation of copper in the brain induces an extrapyramidal syndrome. Oculomotor abnormalities occur in most extrapyramidal disorders but have rarely been studied in Wilsons disease. Objective: To evaluate the ocular motility manifestations of Wilsons disease. Methods: A prospective study of 34 patients affected by Wilsons disease who were recruited and their ocular motility recorded by electro-oculography (EOG). Results: Vertical smooth pursuit was abnormal in 29 patients (85%). Vertical optokinetic nystagmus and horizontal smooth pursuit were impaired in 41% and 41% of patients, respectively. No MRI abnormality was found in the lenticular nuclei of seven patients who manifested ocular motility abnormalities. Conclusion: Vertical eye movements, in particular vertical pursuits, are impaired in Wilsons disease, more often than vertical optokinetic ...
Participant evaluations included demographic information, medical history, neurologic examination including the United Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale to examine for extrapyramidal signs, medication/adherence history, DSM-IV-based substance abuse/dependence inventory, immunologic and virologic laboratory tests, and neuropsychiatric testing; as previously reported.27 The 80-minute neuropsychiatric test battery, adapted from the NorthEast AIDS Dementia Cohort, assessed multiple cognitive domains affected by HIV-1 and included the following: choice and sequential reaction time from the California Computerized Assessment Package, Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (RAVLT), Rey Osterreith Complex Figure (RCF) Copy and Recall, Trail Making tests A and B, WAIS-R Digit Symbol, Grooved Pegboard (dominant and nondominant hands), Verbal fluency test, Animal Naming, Boston Naming Test, the WAIS-R Digit Span (forward and backward), and Timed Gait. Depression symptomatology was assessed using the Beck ...
Two main conclusions can be drawn from this review. Firstly, taking the trial results at face value, atypical antipsychotics are slightly more effective and better tolerated in patients with schizophrenia. Atypical antipsychotics also have a significantly lower risk of causing extrapyramidal side effects. We found no reliable evidence of differential effects between atypical antipsychotics and we have therefore grouped them together in this discussion. Secondly, when we controlled for the higher than recommended dose of conventional antipsychotics used in some trials, a modest advantage in favour of atypical antipsychotics in terms of extrapyramidal side effects remains, but the differences in efficacy and overall tolerability disappear, suggesting that many of the perceived benefits of atypical antipsychotics are really due to excessive doses of the comparator drug used in the trials. Taking these points into account, we think it inappropriate to advocate the first line use of a new drug ...
Sarasota, FL - (PRESS RELEASE JET) - 10/20/2017 - Global Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) Treatment Market: Overview. Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a neurological disorder that has the involvement of the involuntary movements. The terms can be described as tardive which means delayed and dyskinesia which means abnormal movement. The symptoms of tardive dyskinesia include finger movement, facial grimacing, jaw swinging, repetitive chewing, continuous blinking of the eyes, tongue thrusting, and others. The side effect of the neuroleptics medicines is tardive dyskinesia. These medicines are also known as major tranquilizers or antipsychotics. These medicines are mainly used for treating mental issues. Tardive dyskinesia occurs when you are on the medication for many months or years. As the drug that can be used for the treatment of tardive dyskinesia is not approved and method of treatment is also yet not confirmed thus the treatment of the disease is a difficult task. The tardive dyskinesia treatment affects ...

  • Basal ganglia disease is a group of physical dysfunctions that occur when the group of nuclei in the brain known as the basal ganglia fail to properly suppress unwanted movements or to properly prime upper motor neuron circuits to initiate motor function. (wikipedia.org)
  • A nonrandomized, nonblinded controlled clinical trial was carried out to assess the change in local field potentials activity over time in 10 patients with Parkinson disease who underwent deep brain stimulation placement surgery (18 subthalamic nuclei). (asahq.org)
  • They are an expression of what has come to be called the extrapyramidal motor system, meaning-according to S.A.K. Wilson, who introduced this term-the motor structures of the basal ganglia and certain related thalamic and brainstem nuclei. (mhmedical.com)
  • The authors' objective was to evaluate and quantify the effects of dexmedetomidine (0.2 μg·kg -1 ·h -1 ) on local field potentials in patients with Parkinson disease undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery compared with control recording (primary outcome), as well as the effect of propofol at different estimated peak effect site concentrations (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5 μg/ml) from control recording. (asahq.org)
  • Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy refers to the electrical stimulation of specific neural centers and has been successfully applied in a number of pathologies, which include Parkinson's disease, dystonia and tremor among others. (uzh.ch)
  • Even more, DBS is known to be effective both in patients with Parkinson's disease and patients with dystonia, two pathologies that were interpreted as originating from opposite mechanisms in the classical framework. (uzh.ch)
  • reasons for abnormal increases or decreases of basal ganglia output are poorly understood. (wikipedia.org)
  • Using medical imaging, abnormalities can be seen in several parts of the brain, including a group of structures called the basal ganglia, which help control movement, but the relationship between these specific brain abnormalities and the abnormal thiamine transporter is unknown. (nih.gov)
  • The genetic defect, a CAG repeat expansion, results in a malformed huntingtin protein that initiates events leading to neuronal loss especially in the basal ganglia, the most iron rich area of the brain. (plos.org)
  • New research shows that the basal ganglia can be modeled as a group of components of parallel, reentrant cortico-subcortical circuits, which originate in cortical areas, traverse the basal ganglia and terminate in specific areas in the frontal lobe. (wikipedia.org)
  • The activities of the basal ganglia and the cerebellum are blended with and modulate the corticospinal and cortical-brainstem-spinal systems. (mhmedical.com)
  • Several prominent forms of hyperkinetic movements include: The term ataxia refers to a group of progressive neurological diseases that alter coordination and balance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genetic & Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD) GARD provides the public with access to current, reliable, and easy-to-understand information about rare or genetic diseases in English or Spanish. (globalgenes.org)
  • Along with other structures, the basal ganglia are part of a circuit that is integral to voluntary motor function. (wikipedia.org)
  • An important gene associated with Dandy-Walker Malformation with Intellectual Disability, Basal Ganglia Disease and Seizures is AP1S2 (Adaptor Related Protein Complex 1 Subunit Sigma 2). (malacards.org)
  • Therefore, the present study assessed whether the degree of hypointensities on T2-w MRI in the basal ganglia of premanifest gene carriers differs from non-carriers. (plos.org)
  • We concluded that the increased amount of hypointensities in the basal ganglia of premanifest carriers of the HD gene may reflect excessive iron deposition and a role for iron in the neuropathology of HD. (plos.org)
  • Nevertheless, in most people imaging techniques failed to detect abnormalities of the signal intensity of the basal ganglia. (bmj.com)
  • Through this pathway the basal ganglia is able to initiate voluntary movements by disinhibiting thalamic neurons that drive upper motor neurons. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Information Service Information about the service as well as the disease itself. (inter.rs)
  • Basal ganglia disease is a group of physical dysfunctions that happen when this group fails to properly suppress unwanted movements or to properly control upper body movements. (hellodoktor.com)
  • In evaluating the individual with a suspected form of hyperkinesia, the physician will record a thorough medical history including a clear description of the movements in question, medications prescribed in the past and present, family history of similar diseases, medical history including past infections, and any past exposure to toxic chemicals. (wikipedia.org)
  • BACKGROUND: Mice generated by a Cre/LoxP transgenic paradigm were used to model neurodegenerative basal ganglia disease of which Huntington disease (HD) is the prototypical example. (edu.au)
  • 0.001) as well as the Unified Huntington Disease Rating Scale chorea composite subscore ( r = 0.42, p = 0.01). (peerj.com)
  • Research indicates that increased output of the basal ganglia inhibits thalamocortical projection neurons. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is generally attributed to higher than normal basal ganglia output causing inhibition of thalamocortical motor neurons. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was once believed that the primary function of the basal ganglia was to integrate projections from the cerebral cortex, and project information via the thalamus to the motor cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • Through the use of CT scans, calcifications are seen primarily in the basal ganglia and in other areas such as the cerebral cortex. (icd.codes)
  • In this study, we report the natural history, genotype-phenotype correlation, biochemical and molecular findings, features on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and the importance of thiamine in the treatment regimen of this disease. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Some conditions than can cause injury to the brain can damage the basal ganglia. (hellodoktor.com)
  • The contribution that death of specific neuronal cell populations makes to the HD disease phenotype and the response of the brain to loss of defined cell subtypes is largely unknown. (edu.au)
  • The mentioned evidence brings to light the fact that new approaches are needed to describe and understand the physiopathology of the Basal Ganglia and Parkinson's disease from a formal point of view beyond the rate or pattern models. (uzh.ch)
