The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.
Brain disorders resulting from inborn metabolic errors, primarily from enzymatic defects which lead to substrate accumulation, product reduction, or increase in toxic metabolites through alternate pathways. The majority of these conditions are familial, however spontaneous mutation may also occur in utero.
Inflammation of the BRAIN due to infection, autoimmune processes, toxins, and other conditions. Viral infections (see ENCEPHALITIS, VIRAL) are a relatively frequent cause of this condition.

A degenerative disease of the BRAIN characterized by the insidious onset of DEMENTIA. Impairment of MEMORY, judgment, attention span, and problem solving skills are followed by severe APRAXIAS and a global loss of cognitive abilities. The condition primarily occurs after age 60, and is marked pathologically by severe cortical atrophy and the triad of SENILE PLAQUES; NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES; and NEUROPIL THREADS.

Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.

Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.
A class of large neuroglial (macroglial) cells in the central nervous system - the largest and most numerous neuroglial cells in the brain and spinal cord. Astrocytes (from "star" cells) are irregularly shaped with many long processes, including those with "end feet" which form the glial (limiting) membrane and directly and indirectly contribute to the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER. They regulate the extracellular ionic and chemical environment, and "reactive astrocytes" (along with MICROGLIA) respond to injury.

Microglia vary in appearance depending on developmental stage, functional state, and anatomical location; subtype terms include ramified, perivascular, ameboid, resting, and activated. Microglia clearly are capable of phagocytosis and play an important role in a wide spectrum of neuropathologies. They have also been suggested to act in several other roles including in secretion (e.g., of cytokines and neural growth factors), in immunological processing (e.g., antigen presentation), and in central nervous system development and remodeling.

Increased intracellular or extracellular fluid in brain tissue. Cytotoxic brain edema (swelling due to increased intracellular fluid) is indicative of a disturbance in cell metabolism, and is commonly associated with hypoxic or ischemic injuries (see HYPOXIA, BRAIN). An increase in extracellular fluid may be caused by increased brain capillary permeability (vasogenic edema), an osmotic gradient, local blockages in interstitial fluid pathways, or by obstruction of CSF flow (e.g., obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS).

The part of the brain that connects the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES with the SPINAL CORD. It consists of the MESENCEPHALON; PONS; and MEDULLA OBLONGATA.
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.
A circumscribed collection of purulent exudate in the brain, due to bacterial and other infections. The majority are caused by spread of infected material from a focus of suppuration elsewhere in the body, notably the PARANASAL SINUSES, middle ear (see EAR, MIDDLE); HEART (see also ENDOCARDITIS, BACTERIAL), and LUNG. Penetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES may also be associated with this condition. Clinical manifestations include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; focal neurologic deficits; and alterations of consciousness. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp712-6)
A reduction in brain oxygen supply due to ANOXEMIA (a reduced amount of oxygen being carried in the blood by HEMOGLOBIN), or to a restriction of the blood supply to the brain, or both. Severe hypoxia is referred to as anoxia, and is a relatively common cause of injury to the central nervous system. Prolonged brain anoxia may lead to BRAIN DEATH or a PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE. Histologically, this condition is characterized by neuronal loss which is most prominent in the HIPPOCAMPUS; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; CEREBELLUM; and inferior olives.
The thin layer of GRAY MATTER on the surface of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES that develops from the TELENCEPHALON and folds into gyri and sulchi. It reaches its highest development in humans and is responsible for intellectual faculties and higher mental functions.

Human complex sound analysis. (1/3110)

The analysis of complex sound features is important for the perception of environmental sounds, speech and music, and may be abnormal in disorders such as specific language impairment in children, and in common adult lesions including stroke and multiple sclerosis. This work addresses the problem of how the human auditory system detects features in complex sound, and uses those features to perceive the auditory world. The work has been carried out using two independent means of testing the same hypotheses; detailed psychophysical studies of neurological patients with central lesions, and functional imaging using positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imaging of normal subjects. The psychophysical and imaging studies have both examined which brain areas are concerned with the analysis of auditory space, and which are concerned with the analysis of timing information in the auditory system. This differs from many previous human auditory studies, which have concentrated on the analysis of sound frequency. The combined lesion and functional imaging approach has demonstrated analysis of the spatial property of sound movement within the right parietal lobe. The timing work has confirmed that the primary auditory cortex is active as a function of the time structure of sound, and therefore not only concerned with frequency representation of sounds.  (+info)

Computerised tomography and intellectual impairment in the elderly. (2/3110)

Sixty-six elderly subjects (mean age 77 years) whose mental state was assessed clinically and by simple psychometric tests have been studied by computerised tomography. The mean maximum ventricular area in the 17 mentally normal subjects was above the upper limit of normal for younger subjects, and there was a broad relationship between increasing ventricular dilatation and increasing intellectual impairment. No such clear relationship was demonstrable for measures of cortical atrophy.  (+info)

Computerised axial tomography in patients with severe migraine: a preliminary report. (3/3110)

Patients suffering from severe migraine, usually for many years, have been examined by the EMI scanner between attacks. Judged by criteria validated originally by comparison with pneumoencephalography, about half of the patients showed evidence of cerebral atrophy. Perhaps of more significance than generalised atrophy was the frequency of areas of focal atrophy and of evidence of infarction.  (+info)

Activated human T cells, B cells, and monocytes produce brain-derived neurotrophic factor in vitro and in inflammatory brain lesions: a neuroprotective role of inflammation? (4/3110)

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has potent effects on neuronal survival and plasticity during development and after injury. In the nervous system, neurons are considered the major cellular source of BDNF. We demonstrate here that in addition, activated human T cells, B cells, and monocytes secrete bioactive BDNF in vitro. Notably, in T helper (Th)1- and Th2-type CD4(+) T cell lines specific for myelin autoantigens such as myelin basic protein or myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein, BDNF production is increased upon antigen stimulation. The BDNF secreted by immune cells is bioactive, as it supports neuronal survival in vitro. Using anti-BDNF monoclonal antibody and polyclonal antiserum, BDNF immunoreactivity is demonstrable in inflammatory infiltrates in the brain of patients with acute disseminated encephalitis and multiple sclerosis. The results raise the possibility that in the nervous system, inflammatory infiltrates have a neuroprotective effect, which may limit the success of nonselective immunotherapies.  (+info)

Ma1, a novel neuron- and testis-specific protein, is recognized by the serum of patients with paraneoplastic neurological disorders. (5/3110)

The identification of antineuronal antibodies has facilitated the diagnosis of paraneoplastic neurological disorders and the early detection of the associated tumours. It has also led to the cloning of possibly important neuron-specific proteins. In this study we wanted to identify novel antineuronal antibodies in the sera of patients with paraneoplastic neurological disorders and to clone the corresponding antigens. Serological studies of 1705 sera from patients with suspected paraneoplastic neurological disorders resulted in the identification of four patients with antibodies that reacted with 37 and 40 kDa neuronal proteins (anti-Ma antibodies). Three patients had brainstem and cerebellar dysfunction, and one had dysphagia and motor weakness. Autopsy of two patients showed loss of Purkinje cells, Bergmann gliosis and deep cerebellar white matter inflammatory infiltrates. Extensive neuronal degeneration, gliosis and infiltrates mainly composed of CD8+ T cells were also found in the brainstem of one patient. In normal human and rat tissues, the anti-Ma antibodies reacted exclusively with neurons and with testicular germ cells; the reaction was mainly with subnuclear elements (including the nucleoli) and to a lesser degree the cytoplasm. Anti-Ma antibodies also reacted with the cancers (breast, colon and parotid) available from three anti-Ma patients, but not with 66 other tumours of varying histological types. Preincubation of tissues with any of the anti-Ma sera abrogated the reactivity of the other anti-Ma immunoglobulins. Probing of a human complementary DNA library with anti-Ma serum resulted in the cloning of a gene that encodes a novel 37 kDa protein (Mal). Recombinant Mal was specifically recognized by the four anti-Ma sera but not by 337 control sera, including those from 52 normal individuals, 179 cancer patients without paraneoplastic neurological symptoms, 96 patients with paraneoplastic syndromes and 10 patients with non-cancer-related neurological disorders. The expression of Mal mRNA is highly restricted to the brain and testis. Subsequent analysis suggested that Mal is likely to be a phosphoprotein. Our study demonstrates that some patients with paraneoplastic neurological disorders develop antibodies against Mal, a new member of an expanding family of 'brain/testis' proteins.  (+info)

Two similar cases of encephalopathy, possibly a reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome: serial findings of magnetic resonance imaging, SPECT and angiography. (6/3110)

Two young women who had encephalopathy that resembled reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome are presented. The brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of these patients exhibited similar T2-high signal lesions, mostly in the white matter of the posterior hemispheres. Xe-SPECT during the patients' symptomatic period showed hypoperfusion in the corresponding areas, and angiography demonstrated irregular narrowing of the posterior cerebral artery. Clinical manifestations subsided soon after treatment, and the abnormal radiological findings also were almost completely resolved. Thus, we concluded that transient hypoperfusion followed by ischemia and cytotoxic edema might have had a pivotal role in these cases.  (+info)

Mitochondrial encephalomyopathies: the enigma of genotype versus phenotype. (7/3110)

Over the past decade a large body of evidence has accumulated implicating defects of human mitochondrial DNA in the pathogenesis of a group of disorders known collectively as the mitochondrial encephalomyopathies. Although impaired oxidative phosphorylation is likely to represent the final common pathway leading to cellular dysfunction in these diseases, fundamental issues still remain elusive. Perhaps the most challenging of these is to understand the mechanisms which underlie the complex relationship between genotype and phenotype. Here we examine this relationship and discuss some of the factors which are likely to be involved.  (+info)

Changes in the diffusion of water and intracellular metabolites after excitotoxic injury and global ischemia in neonatal rat brain. (8/3110)

The reduction of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of brain tissue water in acute cerebral ischemia, as measured by diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, is generally associated with the development of cytotoxic edema. However, the underlying mechanism is still unknown. Our aim was to elucidate diffusion changes in the intracellular environment in cytotoxic edematous tissue. The ADC of intracellular metabolites was measured by use of diffusion-weighted 1H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy after (1) unilateral N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) injection and (2) cardiac arrest-induced global ischemia in neonatal rat brain. The distinct water ADC drop early after global ischemia was accompanied by a significant reduction of the ADC of all measured metabolites (P < 0.01, n = 8). In the first hours after excitotoxic injury, the ADC of water and the metabolites taurine and N-acetylaspartate dropped significantly (P < 0.05, n = 8). At 24 and 72 hours after NMDA injection brain metabolite levels were diminished and metabolite ADC approached contralateral values. Administration of the NMDA-antagonist MK-801 1.5 hours after NMDA injection completely normalized the water ADC but not the metabolite ADC after 1 to 2 hours (n = 8). No damage was detected 72 hours later and, water and metabolite ADC had normal values (n = 8). The contribution of brain temperature changes (calculated from the chemical shift between the water and N-acetylaspartate signals) and tissue deoxygenation to ischemia-induced intracellular ADC changes was minor. These data lend support to previous suggestions that the ischemia-induced brain water ADC drop may partly be caused by reduced diffusional displacement of intracellular water, possibly involving early alterations in intracellular tortuosity, cytoplasmic streaming, or intracellular molecular interactions.  (+info)

Sepsis-associated encephalopathy (SAE), a diffuse cerebral dysfunction in the absence of direct CNS infection, is associated with increased rates of mortality and morbidity in patients with sepsis. Increased cytokine production and disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) are implicated in the pathogenesis of SAE. The induction of pro-inflammatory mediators is driven, in part, by activation of NF-κΒ. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), an endotoxin produced by gram-negative bacteria, potently activates NF-κΒ and its downstream targets, including cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2). Cox-2 catalyzes prostaglandin synthesis and in the brain prostaglandin, E2 is capable of inducing endothelial permeability. Depletion of polymerase δ-interacting protein 2 (Poldip2) has previously been reported to attenuate BBB disruption, possibly via regulation of NF-κΒ, in response to ischemic stroke. Here we investigated Poldip2 as a novel regulator of NF-κΒ/cyclooxygenase-2 signaling in an LPS model of SAE. Intraperitoneal

Researchers have developed new single-cell sequencing methods that could be used to map the cell origins of various brain disorders, including Alzheimers, Parkinsons, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.. By analyzing individual nuclei of cells from adult human brains, researchers at the University of California San Diego, Harvard Medical School and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have identified 35 different subtypes of neurons and glial cells and discovered which of these subtypes are most susceptible to common risk factors for different brain diseases.. There are multiple theories regarding the roots of various brain diseases. Our findings enable us to narrow down and rank which types of cells in the brain carry the most genetic risk for developing these diseases, which can help drug developers pick better targets in the future, said Kun Zhang, a professor of bioengineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering and co-senior author of the study. Zhang is also ...
Well, the Wall Street Journal reports that new research reveals iron, copper, zinc and other metals could be linked to Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease. Some scientists theorize that the accumulation of such metals could lead to toxicity that causes brain diseases. And new research with mice shows that reducing excess iron in the brain alleviates the symptoms of Alzheimers. By understanding the role metals play in brain diseases, scientists could be better equipped to develop new treatments for diseases like Alzheimers and Parkinsons ...

Their findings offer hope for a treatment to more than 30,000 Americans who have Huntingtons symptoms and another 200,000 at risk of inheriting the disease. They also could help scientists better understand other fatal brain diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and a certain type of dementia, as well as help researchers learn more about normal brain aging.. We found these kind of traffic jams in cells, and if we can fix the traffic jams we can potentially provide a new avenue for treatment of neurodegenerative disease, said Jonathan Grima, a graduate student in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine department of neuroscience whose research was published this week in the journal Neuron.. Grima said its not clear if a drug developed to clear these jams could stop cells from dying, and thus stop progression of Huntingtons, but that is the goal. Grima works in the lab of Dr. Jeffrey Rothstein, director of Hopkins Brain Science Institute.. Rothstein, who normally focuses on ...
Milwaukee, Wis. - The Medical College of Wisconsin has received a two-year, $377,000 award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to study the fetal basis of adult brain disease.. The research, which will be led by principal investigator Jeannette Vasquez Vivar, assistant professor of biophysics, will examine the link between oxygen deficit and loss of a key agent in the regulation of the oxidation-reduction process and in neurotransmitter production in the brain. Hypoxia, or oxygen deficit, in the preterm fetal brain is an important gestational complication leading to movement disorders such as cerebral palsy and muscle impairments. The mechanism by which hypoxia causes damage to the developing brain remains unknown, although evidence indicates that oxidative stress plays a role. This mechanism is being investigated in animal models and cell cultures, using several analytical techniques. Related stories. • Medical College team creates website for tracking flu. • ...

Scientists report a significant step toward combatting two degenerative brain diseases that chip away at an individuals ability to move, and think. A targeted therapy developed by scientists at University of Utah Health slows the progression of a condition in mice that mimics a rare disease called ataxia. In a parallel collaborative study, led by researchers at Stanford University, a nearly identical treatment improves the health of mice that model Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly called Lou Gehrigs disease.. The findings benchmark a new approach toward alleviating these previously untreatable conditions. In addition, they suggest that the therapys target, the ataxin-2 gene, may be important for maintaining the health of brain cells. Additional work needs to be done to determine whether the regimen is safe and effective in humans and forestalls the death of brain cells over the long-term.. This is a proof of concept that these new compounds could become the basis for new ...

Why the newest classification of addiction as a brain disease, while accurate, may cause more harm than good. One of the major focuses of the addiction and recovery advocacy movement over the course of the last couple of years has been to create a shift in public perception and public discourse that moves addiction away from a stigmatized, demonized, criminalized moral issue into the light of looking at addiction as both a medical issue and a public health issue. The understanding is that those people suffering from substance use disorders are not bad or weak or evil people, who are making a choice to cause chaos and harm in the lives of others and kill themselves through substances, but rather they are sick people, dealing with a hijacked brain and a number of societal, genetic, psychological and environmental factors who are in need of vital life-saving addiction treatment in order to heal, recover and re-enter society as functioning human beings..

Many intracranial lesions have cystic features on MR images. The cystic appearance arises from an abrupt transition between tissues with different physicochemical properties and corresponds histologically to a wide spectrum of diseases. Cystic intracranial lesions may correspond either to true cysts (lined by epithelial, ependymal, or meningothelial cells), porencephalic pseudocysts (all containing CSF), dermoid and epidermoid cysts (containing keratin), the appearance of which on MR images may simulate CSF, or may correspond to pseudocystic neoplastic or inflammatory lesions because of the accumulation either of necrotic or of intercellular myxoid or proteinaceous material (1, 2). From a clinical point of view, it is important to be able to distinguish between those cystic intracranial lesions that require surgery and those that do not, because the former represent a potentially life-threatening condition for the patient (neoplastic or inflammatory) whereas the latter (maldevelopmental or ...
Outcome of acute encephalopathy/encephalitis was compared in children treated with early or delayed cooling in a study at St Marys Hospital, Fukuoka, and other centers in Japan. Children between 1 month and 14 years old, cared for at pediatric intensive care units at 10 Japanese tertiary centers, Jan 1997-July 2008, were retrospectively enrolled. Eight centers provided therapeutic hypothermia within 48 h of diagnosis. Of 43 children, 27 had a preceding viral infection, and 17 were influenza. Acute necrotizing encephalopathy was diagnosed in 8 children, hemorrhagic shock and encephalopathy syndrome in 5, and acute encephalopathy with refractory seizures in 16. The incidence of unfavorable outcome for children cooled after 12 h of diagnosis was invariant with normothermic children but was significantly higher compared with children cooled within 12 h. Younger age ,18 months and marked elevation of serum lactic dehydrogenase (LD) greater than the 75th percentile were associated with severe ...

New findings that onetime star linebacker Junior Seau had a degenerative brain disease when he shot himself in the chest last May have turned up the heat on the NFL, which claims its doing its best to protect its players and support medical research. The suits, awaiting review by a federal judge in Philadelphia, could be a replay of the tobacco cases -- the long-running and ultimately successful claims by smokers and state governments that the industry hid the lethal risks of its products. The concussion suits nevertheless have potentially huge consequences, both for the NFLs finances and for its safety policies, in light of mounting evidence of the cumulative effects of years of violent gridiron collisions. Seau, who never had a reported concussion in his 20-year career, suffered from a brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE, National Institutes of Health researchers said last week. [...] comments are reminiscent of the response by tobacco companies to the first expressions

Older people who have higher blood pressure may have more signs of brain disease, specifically brain lesions, according to a study published in the July 11, 2018, online issue of Neurology. Rush researchers also found a link between higher blood pressure and more markers of Alzheimers disease, tangles in the brain.
The definitive guide to clinical neurology, the twelfth edition of Brains Diseases of the Nervous System provides detailed coverage of the full range of major neurological conditions, and includes updated sections on genetics, development neurology, and re-written introductory chapters.
When he ended his life last year by shooting himself in the chest, Junior Seau had a degenerative brain disease often linked with repeated blows to the head.. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health said Thursday the former NFL stars abnormalities are consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE.. The hard-hitting linebacker played for 20 NFL seasons with San Diego, Miami and New England before retiring in 2009. He died at age 43 of a self-inflicted gunshot in May, and his family requested the analysis of his brain.. We saw changes in his behavior and things that didnt add up with him, his ex-wife, Gina, told The Associated Press. But (CTE) was not something we considered or even were aware of. But pretty immediately (after the suicide) doctors were trying to get their hands on Juniors brain to examine it.. The NIH, based in Bethesda, Md., studied three unidentified brains, one of which was Seaus, and said the findings on Seau were similar to autopsies of people ...

In degenerative brain diseases and after stroke, nerve cells die while their support cells activate the brains immune system to cause further damage. Now Jonathan Gilthorpe, Adrian Pini and Andrew Lumsden at the MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at Kings College London, have found that a single protein, histone H1, causes these distinct outcomes.. The research passed peer review within a week of being published in F1000Research, where Jan-Marino Ramirez, of the University of Washington, called the work a very important contribution to our understanding of neurodegenerative disease and the response of the brain to injury in his public referee report. He also noted that he is confident that this study will be a much cited contribution to the field of traumatic brain injury.. The most unexpected finding in this study is that a histone protein is responsible for neuronal damage. Histone H1 partners with DNA in the cell nucleus and has been thought of as harmless, explain the authors, ...
Electric Shocks, Not Drugs, Help A Brain Disease. * Read the text below. PDF Download (right-click or option-click and save). (1)Modern medicine mainly uses drugs to cure disease. But what if drugs were replaced with electricity? Pacemakers, small machines that doctors surgically place in the body, already use electric signals to help weak hearts beat right.. (2) And now, scientists are using electricity on the brain to ease the effects of Parkinsons disease. Parkinsons disease causes uncontrollable shaking, or tremors.. (3) Simply walking down the street is a great gift for David Dewsnap.. (4) The usual drug treatment did not help his Parkinsons disease. So, doctors cut open his skull and placed wires, or electrodes, deep in his brain.. (5) The Deep Brain Stimulation System is a two part medical device. One part is thin wires that doctors place in the part of the brain connected with movement. The other part is a battery pack. The battery produces the electric signals.. (6) Before doctors ...

In malaria-endemic areas, it is difficult to differentiate between cerebral malaria (CM), bacterial meningitis, and viral encephalitis. We examined the cerebrospinal fluid of 49 children who fulfilled the World Health Organizations (WHO) definition of CM and in 47 encephalopathic children, without malaria, looking for viruses with polymerase chain reaction. In the children with CM, four (9%) had evidence of Herpes simplex virus 1 in the cerebrospinal fluid, whereas in the encephalopathy group without malaria, six (12%) were positive. A significant proportion of children who fulfil the WHO clinical definition of CM may have viral encephalitis.
Chennai:Scientists from the US and India have found that consumption of litchi fruit and skipping evening meal can result in very low blood glucose level and acute encephalopathy, seizures and coma, and causes death in many cases.An unexplained illness in children aged 15 years and younger in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, which claims many lives in May-June, has been solved. Scientists from the US and India have found that consumption of litchi fruit and skipping evening meal can result in very low blood glucose level (less than 70 mg/dL) and acute encephalopathy that provokes seizures and coma, and causes death in many cases.The results were published in journal Lancet Global Health.Children in Muzaffarpur frequently spend the day eating litchis and some skip the evening meal. Skipping evening meal, by itself results in low blood sugar levels during the night. This is particularly so in the case of young children as they have limited hepatic glycogen reserves.

The World Economic Summit [Bloom, D. E., et al., The Global Economic Burden of Noncommunicable Diseases, Geneva, 2011] reports that the five main chronic, non-communicative diseases (mental illness, cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes) will cost $47 trillion globally by 2030, with $16 trillion attributed to mental disease. Costs in the United States today are estimated at more than $900 billion annually [PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Annual Cost of Brain Disease in 2012], while the [European Brain Council] EBC estimates the cost of brain disease in Europe since January 2014 at nearly €750 billion and rising fast. Europes aging population is increasingly in need of effective care and therapies for brain diseases, including stroke, Parkinsons disease, and Alzheimers disease, which represent 35% of the burden of all diseases in Europe [Banks, J.

Dear colleague, The Netherlands Institute for Brain Research and the Netherlands Ophthalmic Research Institute are organizing this year the 23rd International Summer School of Brain Research from August 25-29, 2003 in Amsterdam. The program is dedicated to the theme Development, dynamics and pathology of neuronal networks: from molecules to functional circuits. The Summer School will focus on key mechanisms in the development of neurons into circuits with functional dynamics, and will link the dynamics in neural circuits with cognitive / behavioral processes. In this respect we wish to emphasize (1) molecular and cell-biological mechanisms of neuronal network development and plasticity, (2) understanding activity in neuronal networks in relation to their structure, and (3) understanding normal and deficient neural circuitry at the cognitive and behavioral level. The Summer School aims at providing a forum for discussing broad views as well as latest developments on the above topics. The lectures ...
