The two major subtypes of this condition are ideomotor (see APRAXIA, IDEOMOTOR) and ideational apraxia, which refers to loss of the ability to mentally formulate the processes involved with performing an action. For example, dressing apraxia may result from an inability to mentally formulate the act of placing clothes on the body. Apraxias are generally associated with lesions of the dominant PARIETAL LOBE and supramarginal gyrus. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp56-7)
A "smooth brain" malformation of the CEREBRAL CORTEX resulting from abnormal location of developing neurons during corticogenesis. It is characterized by an absence of normal convoluted indentations on the surface of the brain (agyria), or fewer and shallower indentations (pachygryia). There is a reduced number of cortical layers, typically 4 instead of 6, resulting in a thickened cortex, and reduced cerebral white matter that is a reversal of the normal ratio of cerebral white matter to cortex.
Degradation of CORPUS LUTEUM. In the absence of pregnancy and diminishing trophic hormones, the corpus luteum undergoes luteolysis which is characterized by the involution and cessation of its endocrine function.

Morphogenesis of callosal arbors in the parietal cortex of hamsters. (1/1216)

The morphogenesis of callosal axons originating in the parietal cortex was studied by anterograde labeling with Phaseolus lectin or biocytin injected in postnatal (P) hamsters aged 7-25 days. Some labeled fibers were serially reconstructed. At P7, some callosal fibers extended as far as the contralateral rhinal fissure, with simple arbors located in the homotopic region of the opposite cortical gray matter, and two or three unbranched sprouts along their trajectory. From P7 to P13, the homotopic arbors became more complex, with branches focused predominantly, but not exclusively, in the supra- and infragranular layers of the homotopic region. Simultaneously, the lateral extension of the trunk axon in the white matter became shorter, finally disappearing by P25. Arbors in the gray matter were either bilaminar (layers 2/3 and 5) or supragranular. A heterotopic projection to the lateral cortex was consistently seen at all ages; the heterotopic arbors follow a similar sequence of events to that seen in homotopic regions. These observations document that callosal axons undergo regressive tangential remodeling during the first postnatal month, as the lateral extension of the trunk fiber gets eliminated. Radially, however, significant arborization occurs in layer-specific locations. The protracted period of morphogenesis suggests a correspondingly long plastic period for this system of cortical fibers.  (+info)

The size and fibre composition of the corpus callosum with respect to gender and schizophrenia: a post-mortem study. (2/1216)

In this study the cross-sectional area (in n = 14 female controls, 15 male controls, 11 female patients with schizophrenia, 15 male patients with schizophrenia) and fibre composition (in n = 11 female controls, 10 male controls, 10 female patients with schizophrenia, 10 male patients with schizophrenia) of the corpus callosum in post-mortem control and schizophrenic brains was examined. A gender x diagnosis interaction (P = 0.005) was seen in the density of axons in all regions of the corpus callosum except the posterior midbody and splenium. Amongst controls, females had greater density than males; in patients with schizophrenia this difference was reversed. A reduction in the total number of fibres in all regions of the corpus callosum except the rostrum was observed in female schizophrenic patients (P = 0.006; when controlling for brain weight, P = 0.053). A trend towards a reduced cross-sectional area of the corpus callosum was seen in schizophrenia (P = 0.098); however, this is likely to be no more than a reflection of an overall reduction in brain size. With age, all subregions of the corpus callosum except the rostrum showed a significant reduction in cross-sectional area (P = 0.018) and total fibre number (P = 0.002). These findings suggest that in schizophrenia there is a subtle and gender-dependent alteration in the forebrain commissures that may relate to the deviations in asymmetry seen in other studies, but the precise anatomical explanation remains obscure.  (+info)

The role of ventral medial wall motor areas in bimanual co-ordination. A combined lesion and activation study. (3/1216)

Two patients with midline tumours and disturbances of bimanual co-ordination as the presenting symptoms were examined. Both reported difficulties whenever the two hands had to act together simultaneously, whereas they had no problems with unimanual dexterity or the use of both hands sequentially. In the first patient the lesion was confined to the cingulate gyrus; in the second it also invaded the corpus callosum and the supplementary motor area. Kinematic analysis of bimanual in-phase and anti-phase movements revealed an impairment of both the temporal adjustment between the hands and the independence of movements between the two hands. A functional imaging study in six volunteers, who performed the same bimanual in-phase and anti-phase tasks, showed strong activations of midline areas including the cingulate and ventral supplementary motor area. The prominent activation of the ventral medial wall motor areas in the volunteers in conjunction with the bimanual co-ordination disorder in the two patients with lesions compromising their function is evidence for their pivotal role in bimanual co-ordination.  (+info)

Functional neuropsychophysiological asymmetry in schizophrenia: a review and reorientation. (4/1216)

In reviewing the neuropsychophysiological evidence of functional asymmetry it is proposed that schizophrenia is characterized by a greater dispersion of leftward and rightward asymmetries. The two extremes are represented by active (left greater than right) and withdrawn (right greater than left) syndromes, as is the case with psychometric schizotypy. Syndrome-asymmetry relations extended beyond fronto-temporal systems to include posterior activity, infracortical motoneuron excitability, and individual differences in interhemispheric connectivity and directional biases. Central to these are lateral imbalances in thalamo-cortical and callosal arousal systems, while centrality to schizophrenia follows evidence of reversals in asymmetry with changes in symptom profile, clinical recovery, and neuroleptic treatment. Affinities are found in intact animals from challenge-induced turning tendencies representing coordinated activity of attentional, motor, and reinforcement systems. In both patients and animals, neuroleptics have reciprocal interhemispheric effects, with a bidirectionality that depends on syndrome or endogenous turning preference. Bidirectionality implicates nonspecific thalamic system (NSTS) and not limbic projections. It is proposed that the asymmetries arise from endogenous influences of genes, hormones, and early experience including stressors on NSTS asymmetry, and these underpin approach/withdrawal behavior that is manifested in temperament, personality, and clinical syndrome, and which precedes language development.  (+info)

Lipoma of the corpus callosum. (5/1216)

Lipoma of the corpus callosum is a rare congenital condition, often asymptomatic, but which may present as epilepsy, hemiplegia, dementia, or headaches. This paper reviews the condition and reports the only two cases which are known to the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London. The second case demonstrated the value of computerised axial tomography (EMI scan) in making the diagnosis and showing associated anomalies.  (+info)

Genetic background changes the pattern of forebrain commissure defects in transgenic mice underexpressing the beta-amyloid-precursor protein. (6/1216)

We previously have reported corpus callosum defects in transgenic mice expressing the beta-amyloid precursor protein (betaAPP) with a deletion of exon 2 and at only 5% of normal levels. This finding indicates a possible involvement of betaAPP in the regulation or guidance of axon growth during neural development. To determine to what degree the betaAPP mutation interacts with genetic background alleles that predispose for forebrain commissure defects in some mouse lines, we have assessed the size of the forebrain commissures in a sample of 298 mice. Lines with mixed genetic background were compared with congenic lines obtained by backcrossing to the parental strains C57BL/6 and 129/SvEv. Mice bearing a null mutation of the betaAPP gene also were included in the analysis. We show that, independently of genetic background, both lack and underexpression of betaAPP are associated with reduced brain weight and reduced size of forebrain commissures, especially of the ventral hippocampal commissure. In addition, both mutations drastically increase the frequency and severity of callosal agenesis and hippocampal commissure defects in mouse lines with 129/SvEv or 129/Ola background.  (+info)

Brain involvement in Salla disease. (7/1216)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our purpose was to document the nature and progression of brain abnormalities in Salla disease, a lysosomal storage disorder, with MR imaging. METHODS: Fifteen patients aged 1 month to 43 years underwent 26 brain MR examinations. In 10 examinations, signal intensity was measured and compared with that of healthy volunteers of comparable ages. RESULTS: MR images of a 1-month-old asymptomatic child showed no pathology. In all other patients, abnormal signal intensity was found: on T2-weighted images, the cerebral white matter had a higher signal intensity than the gray matter, except in the internal capsules. In six patients, the white matter was homogeneous on all images. In four patients, the periventricular white matter showed a somewhat lower signal intensity; in five patients, a higher signal intensity. In the peripheral cerebral white matter, the measured signal intensity remained at a high level throughout life. No abnormalities were seen in the cerebellar white matter. Atrophic changes, if present, were relatively mild but were found even in the cerebellum and brain stem. The corpus callosum was always thin. CONCLUSION: In Salla disease, the cerebral myelination process is defective. In some patients, a centrifugally progressive destructive process is also seen in the cerebral white matter. Better myelination in seen in patients with milder clinical symptoms.  (+info)

MR imaging of acute coccidioidal meningitis. (8/1216)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our purpose was to describe the MR imaging findings in patients with acute coccidioidal meningitis. METHODS: Fourteen patients (11 men, three women; 22-78 years old; mean age, 47 years) with coccidioidal meningitis underwent neuroimaging within 2 months of diagnosis. Thirteen patients had MR imaging and one had an initial CT study with a follow-up MR examination 5 months later. Initial and follow-up MR images were evaluated for the presence of ventricular dilatation, signal abnormalities, enhancement characteristics, sites of involvement, and evidence of white matter or cortical infarction. The patterns of enhancement were characterized as focal or diffuse. Pathologic specimens were reviewed in two patients. RESULTS: Ten of the 14 images obtained at the time of initial diagnosis showed evidence of meningitis. All of the initially abnormal studies showed enhancement in the basal cisterns, sylvian fissures, or pericallosal region. Subsequent studies, which were available for three of the four patients with normal findings initially, all eventually became abnormal, with focal enhancement seen on the initial abnormal examination. Other abnormalities seen at presentation included ventricular dilatation (six patients) and deep infarcts (four patients). Pathologic specimens in two patients showed focal collections of the organism corresponding to the areas of intense enhancement on MR images. CONCLUSION: Early in its disease course, coccidioidal meningitis may show areas of focal enhancement in the basal cisterns, which may progress to diffuse disease. Pathologically, the areas of enhancement represent focal collections of the organism. Deep infarcts and communicating hydrocephalus are associated findings.  (+info)

Dengue virus infection in humans can lead to a wide range of clinical manifestations, from mild fever to potentially fatal dengue shock syndrome. The incidence of dengue fever is on the rise in tropical countries. Due to the increasing incidence of dengue fever worldwide, atypical manifestations of the disease are increasingly reported. In this article we report a patient with dengue haemorrhagic fever who presented with reversible splenial lesion syndrome. A 24-year-old Sri Lankan man who presented with fever and confusion was eventually diagnosed to have reversible splenial lesion syndrome based on brain imaging. Clinical, serological and haematological parameters confirmed a diagnosis of dengue haemorrhagic fever. His presentation, assessment, and management are described in this case report. Reversible splenial lesion syndrome is a condition which is radiologically characterized by reversible lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum. It is associated with infectious and non-infectious

Agenesis of the corpus callosum can occur isolated or as part of a complex congenital syndrome. Patients with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum may present with severe intellectual disability, although a proportion of affected individuals develop normal intelligence. However, even in patients with no apparent deficits, subtle neuropsychological alterations may occur as the cognitive demand increases with age. Hence, patients with this deffect require a strict follow-up during their postnatal life. Thus, physicians require a better knowledge of the cognitive features of agenesis of the corpus callosum to improve their approach to this cerebral malformation. Here, we report an illustrative case of a school-age child with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum and normal intelligence. We also provide a literature review about the postnatal screening of neurocognitive deficits in patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum. An 8-year-old Hispanic boy with total agenesis of the corpus callosum
Corpus callosotomy is a palliative surgical procedure for the treatment of seizures. As the corpus callosum is critical to the interhemispheric spread of epileptic activity, the procedure seeks to eliminate this pathway. Efficacy and relatively low permanent morbidity in corpus callosotomy for medically intractable epilepsy have been demonstrated by more than six decades of experience. In addition to seizure reduction, behavior and quality of life may improve.[1] The corpus callosum is usually severed in order to stop epileptic seizures. Once the corpus callosum is cut, the brain has much more difficulty sending messages between the hemispheres. Although the corpus callosum is the largest white matter tract connecting the hemispheres, some limited interhemispheric communication is still possible via the anterior commissure and posterior commissure. When tested in particular situations, it is obvious that information transfer between the hemispheres is reduced. ...

N2 - The goal of the present study was to determine if there are global or regionally specific decreases in callosal area in early Alzheimers disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). In addition, this study examined the corpus callosum of healthy older adults who have subjective cognitive complaints (CC) but perform within normal limits on neuropsychological tests. We used a semi-automated procedure to examine the total and regional areas of the corpus callosum in 22 patients with early AD, 28 patients with amnestic MCI, 28 healthy older adults with cognitive complaints, and 50 demographically matched healthy controls (HC). The AD, MCI, ...
Aging Age-related decline in the commissural fiber tracts that make up the corpus callosum indicate the corpus callosum is involved in memory and executive function. Specifically, the posterior fibers of the corpus callosum are associated with episodic memory. Perceptual processing decline is also related to diminished integrity of occipital fibers of the corpus callosum. Evidence suggests that the genu of the corpus callosum does not contribute significantly to any one cognitive domain in the elderly. As fiber tract connectivity in the corpus callosum declines due to aging, compensatory mechanisms are found in other areas of the corpus callosum and frontal lobe. These compensatory mechanisms, increasing connectivity in other parts of the brain, may explain why elderly individuals still display executive function as a decline of connectivity is seen in regions of the corpus callosum.[7] Older adults compared to younger adults show poorer performance in balance exercises and tests. A decline in ...
left hemispheres of the brain together. Disorders of the corpus callosum, or DCCs, are conditions in which the corpus callosum does not develop in a typical manner. This important brain superhighway is usually formed by 12 to 16 weeks after conception. However, there are some people born without a corpus callosum at all, this is otherwise known as agenesis of the corpus callosum. My 4 year old son has hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, which means that his corpus callosum is thin and therefore may be less efficient. A few other included disorders are partial agenesis, as in partially absent, and dysgenesis, or malformation, of the corpus callosum.. DCCs, like Autism, are a spectrum disorder, where there is no textbook answer to how happy or healthy someone will be just based off of diagnosis. Many parents are finding out during pregnancy due to the advancement in technology and equipment. Unfortunately, they are not always getting the best advice or support, due to the lack of knowledge on ...

This condition occurs when the callosal fibers may have started to grow, but are unable to cross between the hemispheres. The fibers grow toward the back of the same hemisphere where they began. These fibers form what are called Bundles of Probst. Some smaller connections between the hemispheres develop in most individuals with ACC. These are the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, and hippocampal commissure. However, each of these is at least 40,000 times smaller than the corpus callosum. Thus, they cannot compensate completely for the absence of the corpus callosum. ...
The importance of the corpus callosum for binocular interaction in areas 17 and 18 of the adult cat is still a matter of controversy, since its specific role in integrating information from the two eyes has been suggested by some and questioned by others. We have reanalyzed the problem by assessing binocular interaction for single neurons in areas 17 and 18 of adult cats submitted to section of the posterior two-thirds of the corpus callosum. In 5 cats this interhemispheric disconnection was performed from 10 days to 7 weeks before the electrophysiological recordings; in another cat callosal afferents to the recording sites were at first partially eliminated by an acute lesion of corresponding cortical zones in the other hemisphere, and thereafter completely interrupted by a posterior callosal section performed in the same recording session. Recordings were mainly aimed at the callosal zone of areas 17 and 18, which coincides with the border between these two areas and corresponds to visual ...
Figure 7. The glial wedge supresses-repels the growth of postcrossing callosal axons in vitro. To specifically study postcrossing callosal axons, we made live coronal slices of E17 brains and bisected them along the midline to obtain slices containing only one hemisphere. These hemisected slices were grown in collagen for 3 d and then fixed and labeled with the cellular marker Sytox green (green cellular labeling in all panels). Callosal axons were visualized with DiI injected into the medial cortex of the slice (A-I, red axons). A schematic of the slice culture is shown in A. When slices were cultured alone, callosal axons crossed the midline and grew into the collagen (B, C, arrow; C is a higher-power view of the region delineated in B). Hemisected slices cocultured with cortical explants (D, E; two different examples) had callosal axons that grew into the collagen and entered the cortical explants (D, E, arrows). However, when hemisected slices were cocultured with glial wedge explants, fewer ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Axon growth failure following corpus callosum lesions precedes glial reaction in perinatal rats. AU - Ajtai, B. M.. AU - Kálmán, M.. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - The present study compares the glial reactivity and the axon growth following corpus callosum (CC) lesions, in perinatal rats. Lesions were performed on fetal (E17 to E20) and early postnatal (P0 and P2) rats. The reactive glia and the presence of neural fibers were detected by immunohistochemical staining of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and neurofilament protein (NFP), respectively. The callosal axons failed (at least in part) to penetrate the lesioned area already after E18 lesions, and the lesioned area was always impenetrable for axons after E20 and P0 lesions. In these cases, the lesioned part of the CC was completely or nearly devoid of GFAP as well as NFP. The distributions of the immunopositivities to GFAP and NFP also coincided with each other, both in the intact part of the CC and along the ...
Conclusions: Atrophy of the CC is associated with cognitive impairment and fatigue. Regional CCI results indicate that these associations are partially spatially segregated. (Source: Multiple Sclerosis)
This study is a cross sectional study of patients diagnosed with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) and RRMS, who will undergo a series of tests to assess cognitive impairment, fatigue severity and depressive symptoms. Cognitive impairment will be assessed with Multiple Sclerosis Inventory Cognition (MUSIC) and symbol digit modalities test (SDMT), fatigue severity will be measured with the Fatigue Scale for Motor and Cognitive Functions (FSMC) and depressive symptoms with the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). All tests mentioned above are validated for MS patients. In the second step we will use our large longitudinal database of serial MRI examinations from which a linear measurement of CCI will be retrospectively calculated ...

I am a speech-language pathologist working with a first-grader with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He speaks in complete sentences and produces most sounds correctly. However, I have just begun working on his prosody. In our first session addressing voicing issues, he was unable to imitate/approximate exaggerated high and low pitch. His mother reports that he does not hum or sing tunes but he does make voices when playing independently with action figures. I have searched our ASHA professional website but did not find any therapy techniques or suggestions. Do you have any resources that might help me?. Response by JoAnne Tully CCC-SLP (2009). I dont know of any articles or discussions that have directly talked about prosody in children with DCC. I do know, however, that a lot of children with DCC have some degree of apraxia, and prosody disorders often accompany apraxia. The Apraxia-Kids website has a good article by Shelley Velleman about prosody. The link to that article is ...
Here is a rendering of the corpus callosum with some of the grey matter stripped away in order to reveal how extensive its fibers are throughout the cerebral hemispheres. The corpus callosum is a large system of nerve fibers connecting the right and left hemispheres. We know something about its functioning through the split-brain operation,…
If the upper part of either hemisphere be removed, at a level about 1.25 cm. above the corpus callosum, the central white matter will be exposed as an oval-shaped area, the centrum ovale minus, surrounded by a narrow convoluted margin of gray substance, and studded with numerous minute red dots (puncta vasculosa), produced by the escape of blood from divided bloodvessels.. If the remaining portions of the hemispheres be slightly drawn apart a broad band of white substance, the corpus callosum, will be observed, connecting them at the bottom of the longitudinal fissure; the margins of the hemispheres which overlap the corpus callosum are called the labia cerebri.. Each labium is part of the cingulate gyrus already described; and the slit-like interval between it and the upper surface of the corpus callosum is termed the callosal sulcus.. If the hemispheres be sliced off to a level with the upper surface of the corpus callosum, the white substance of that structure will be seen connecting the two ...
Agenesis of the corpus callosum is the most frequent brain malformation. This anomaly may be diagnosed by ultrasound screening. In half of these prenatal cases, the anomaly seems to be isolated. In this setting, there are no prospective data concerning the development of these children, preventing any clear information to be delivered to parents. Prenatal diagnostic centers therefore face extremely variable rates of termination of pregnancies (TOP), which can reach up to 80%.. This is a multicentric prospective interventional study whose primary objective is to assess the neurological development at three years of age of children born after prenatal diagnosis of isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum.. Evaluation at three years will include Intellectual Quotient (IQ) quantification using the WPPSI-III, 3rd edition of Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence and evaluation of intra-hemispheric coordination using the Vineland adaptative behaviour scale.. Secondary objectives will ...
Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with agenesis of the corpus callosum (HMSN/ACC or ACCPN), also known as Andermann Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by severe progressive sensorimotor neuropathy with resulting hypotonia, areflexia, and amyotrophy and variable degrees of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum.NIH ACCPN is inherited as an autosomal recessive, through mutations in the SLC12A6 gene. Several SLC12A6 mutations leading to ACCPN have been identified, including: ...
The corpus callosum is a thick band of nerve fibers that is located at the center of the brain underneath the cerebrum and divides the brain into left and right hemispheres. It allows both sides of the brain to communicate by transferring sensory, cognitive, and motor information between the two hemispheres. The corpus callosum is also involved with eye movement and maintaining the balance of attention and arousal. It changes structurally throughout ones life especially during childhood and adolescence. ...

DISCUSSION. To investigate whether retinal influences on callosal topography are mediated by NMDARs, we studied the topography of callosal linkages in adult rats that had been injected with the NMDAR blocker MK-801 during the P4-P6 critical period. We expected that blockade of NMDARs during this critical period would lead to the development of mirror-symmetric callosal linkages, thus replicating the effect of removing retinal input at P4 (Olavarría and Hiroi, 2003). Instead, we found that pharmacological blockade of NMDARs from P4-P6 did not induce obvious abnormalities in the topography of callosal linkages: callosal linkages were non-mirror symmetric, as in control rats. These results provide evidence that the influences that the eyes exert on callosal topography during the P4-P6 critical period do not opérate through NMDAR-mediated processes. In contrast, we found that interfering with NMDAR function either through MK801-induced blockade of NMDARs starting at P6 or neonatal enucleation ...
No literature review exists on Mycoplasma pneumoniae-associated mild encephalitis/encepharopathy with a reversible splenial lesion (MERS). M.pneumoniae-associated MERS cases were searched till August 2016 using PubMed/Google for English/other-language publications and Ichushi ( http://www.jamas.or.jp/ ) for Japanese-language publications. Inclusion criteria were children fulfilling definition for encephalitis, M.pneumoniae infection, and neuroimaging showing hyperintensity in the splenium of the corpus callosum (SCC) alone (type I) or SCC/other brain areas (type II). We described two children with type I and II M.pneumoniae-associated MERS. Thirteen cases found by the search and our 2 cases were reviewed. Mean age, male/female ratio, duration of prodromal illness was 8.3 years, 1.5 and 3.5 days. The most common neurological symptom was drowsiness, followed by abnormal speech/behavior, ataxia, seizure, delirium, confusion, tremor, hallucination,
Figure 5.9 On the left is a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the brain of a normal adolescent (age 14). The red arrow points to the corpus callosum, the white bundle of fibers that crosses over the midline. The MRI on the right is of an adolescent with FAS (age 14); the red arrow shows the lack of a corpus callosum. [MRI photos courtesy of Drs. Ed Riley and Sarah Mattson, San Diego State University]. Learn more about MRI. The corpus callosum is important in timing tasks, attention, motor tasks, and coordination. When the corpus callosum fails to develop properly a person tends to have problems with attention needed to perform cognitive (thinking) tasks, poor motor coordination, and even mental retardation. Importantly, these defects in brain function can occur even when facial abnormalities are not present. Because the corpus callosum develops throughout gestation, it is sensitive to alcohol exposure during all stages of pregnancy.. ...
It has been shown in vivo that Wnt5a gradients surround the corpus callosum and guide callosal axons after the midline (postcrossing) by Wnt5a-induced repulsion via Ryk receptors.

BACKGROUND Patients with autism have been often reported to have a smaller corpus callosum (CC) than control subjects. METHODS We conducted a meta-analysis of the literature, analyzed the CC in 694 subjects of the Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange project, and performed computer simulations to study the effect of different analysis strategies. RESULTS Our meta-analysis suggested a group difference in CC size; however, the studies were heavily underpowered (20% power to detect Cohens d = .3). In contrast, we did not observe significant differences in the Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange cohort, despite having achieved 99% power. However, we observed that CC scaled nonlinearly with brain volume (BV): large brains had a proportionally smaller CC. Our simulations showed that because of this nonlinearity, CC normalization could not control for eventual BV differences, but using BV as a covariate in a linear model would. We also observed a weaker correlation of IQ and BV in cases compared with control
Wnt5a gradients guide callosal axons by repulsion through Ryk receptors in vivo. We recently found that Wnt5a repels cortical axons and promotes axon outgrowth through calcium signaling in vitro. Here, using cortical slices, we show that Wnt5a signals through Ryk to guide and promote outgrowth of callosal axons after they cross the midline. Calcium transient frequencies in callosal growth cones positively correlate with axon outgrowth rates in vitro. In cortical slices, calcium release through inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptors and calcium entry through transientreceptor potential channels modulate axon growth and guidance. Knocking down Ryk inhibits calcium signaling in cortical axons, reduces rates of axon outgrowth subsequent to midline crossing, and causes axon guidance defects. Calcium- and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is required downstream of Wnt-induced calcium signaling for postcrossing callosal axon growth and guidance. Taken together, these results suggest ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Reaction time was recently recognized as a marker of subtle cognitive and behavioral alterations in the early clinical stages of CADASIL, a monogenic cerebral small-vessel disease. In unselected patients with CADASIL, brain atrophy and lacunes are the main imaging correlates of disease severity, but MR imaging correlates of reaction time in mildly affected patients are unknown. We hypothesized that reaction time is independently associated with the corpus callosum area in the early clinical stages of CADASIL. ...

A number of studies have investigated NPC migration in the presence of EFs, termed galvanotaxis (galvanotaxis) in vitro (Babona-Pilipos et al., 2011, 2015, 2018). In this study, we investigated the effects of biphasic charge-balanced electrical stimulation for galvanotaxis of transplanted NPCs in vivo in the mouse brain. We found that transplanted NPCs had a propensity to migrate laterally along the corpus callosum under baseline conditions and established that endogenous electric potential differences exist along the corpus callosum (more negative laterally compared to medially). This endogenous EF is consistent with the default migration pathway of transplanted NPCs revealing that the corpus callosum is an endogenous migratory pathways that utilizes EFs as a guidance cue in the brain (Cao et al., 2013; Feng et al., 2017). Further, we determined that an applied EF (3-d paradigm) was able to enhance the cathodal distance of cell migration on the corpus callosum, while longer stimulation (6-d ...

One final note: formation of the corpus callosum is a dramatic example of a process that is susceptible to developmental variation. What I mean is this: when patients inherit a mutation that results in callosal agenesis, this phenotype occurs in some patients but not all. This is true even in genetically identical people, like monozygotic twins or triplets (or in lines of genetically identical mice). Though the corpus callosum contains millions of nerve fibres, the initial events that establish it involve very small numbers of cells. These cells, which are located at the medial edge of each cerebral hemisphere, must contact each other to enable the fusion of the two hemispheres, forming a tiny bridge through which the first callosal fibres can cross. Once these are across, the rest seem able to follow easily. Because this event involves very few cells at a specific time in development, it is susceptible to random noise - fluctuations in the precise amounts of various proteins in the cells, for ...
Meet Joe. After suffering from years of epilepsy, Joe underwent brain surgery to have his corpus callosum severed. The corpus callosum, also referred to as the colossal commissure, is a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers at the longitudinal fissure that facilitates interhemispheric communication in the brain. By having this band severed, Joe prevented the spread of epileptic seizure from one hemisphere to the other.. Continue reading →. ...
The mammalian neocortex is parcellated into anatomically and functionally distinct areas. The establishment of area-specific neuronal diversity and circuit connectivity enables distinct neocortical regions to control diverse and specialized functional outputs, yet underlying molecular controls remain largely unknown. Here, we identify a central role for the transcriptional regulator Lim-only 4 (Lmo4) in establishing the diversity of neuronal subtypes within rostral mouse motor cortex, where projection neurons have particularly diverse and multi-projection connectivity compared with caudal motor cortex. In rostral motor cortex, we report that both subcerebral projection neurons (SCPN), which send projections away from the cerebrum, and callosal projection neurons (CPN), which send projections to contralateral cortex, express Lmo4, whereas more caudal SCPN and CPN do not. Lmo4-expressing SCPN and CPN populations are comprised of multiple hodologically distinct subtypes. SCPN in rostral layer Va ...

Marchiafava-Bignami disease is a rare disorder of demyelination or necrosis of the corpus callosum and adjacent subcortical white matter that occurs predominantly in malnourished alcoholics. Dementia, spasticity, dysarthria, and inability to walk may present as an acute, subacute or chronic condition. Lesions appear as hypodense areas in portions of the corpus callosum on CT and as discrete or confluent areas of decreased T1 signal and increased T2 signal on MRI. Alcohol abusers without liver disease, amnesia, or cognitive dysfunction show thinning of the corpus callosum at autopsy and on MRI, suggesting that alcohol or malnutrition damages the corpus callosum commonly in the absence of the necrotic lesions of Marchiafava-Bignami disease.. Interesting, isnt it ...
Background Tourette syndrome (TS) is a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by the presence of multiple motor and phonic tics. Recent brain imaging investigations with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) techniques found reduced measures of connectivity in the corpus callosum of children with TS compared with healthy controls, thus raising the hypothesis that the reduced interhemispherical connectivity in TS reflects neural plasticity processes.. Methods We assessed corpus callosum white-matter connectivity with fractional anisotropy (FA) index from magnetic resonance-DTI in two monozygotic twins (male sex; age 20) discordant for the diagnosis of TS.. Results Both conventional morphological magnetic resonance images and fibre-tracking reconstruction failed to show any difference between the two twins. On the other hand, mean corpus callosum FA values were significantly lower in the affected twin than in the unaffected twin (p,0.01). The differences in FA values were highest in the ...
BACKGROUND:The two human cerebral hemispheres are continuously interacting, through excitatory and inhibitory influences and one critical structure subserving this interhemispheric balance is the corpus callosum. Interhemispheric neurophysiological abnormalities and intrahemispheric behavioral impairments have been reported in individuals lacking the corpus callosum. The aim of this study was to examine intrahemispheric neurophysiological function in primary motor cortex devoid of callosal projections.METHODS:Intracortical excitatory and inhibitory systems were tested in three individuals with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum and sixteen healthy individuals. These systems were assessed using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) protocols: motor threshold at rest, paired-pulse curve, and cortical silent period.RESULTS:TMS revealed no difference between the patient and control groups on the motor threshold measure, as well as intracortical facilitation and intracortical inhibition ...

Interhemispheric transfer was examined in 13 normal controls and in 13 children with hydrocephalus and partial agenesis of the corpus callosum involving a missing splenium associated with spina bifida meningomyelocele and aqueductal stenosis. Children with hydrocephalus demonstrated greater left visual-field superiority for forms indicative of difficulty in interhemispheric transfer of visual information. Interhemispheric transfer time (ITT) was somewhat longer in the children with hydrocephalus, but neither the ITT task nor the dichotic listening and tactile naming tasks provided clear evidence of difficulties in callosal transfer. Sensory and perceptual control tasks revealed similar visual acuity and monotic word perception but larger 2-point discrimination thresholds and poorer tactile matching ...
The agenesis of the corpus callosum and lipoma is a very rare association. We report the case of an 18-years old young patient with no history who was admitted to the emergency department for generalized seizures and atypical headache, the onset of symptoms dated back to two months, neurological examination was normal. The brain computed tomography scan and the magnetic resonance showed the lipoma and the partial agenesis of the corpus callosum.
Disproportionate volume reductions in the basal ganglia, corpus callosum (CC) and hippocampus have been reported in children with prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). However, few studies have investigated these reductions in high prevalence communities, such as the Western Cape Province of South Africa, and only one study made use of manual tracing, the gold standard of volumetric analysis. The present study examined the effects of PAE on subcortical neuroanatomy using manual tracing and the relation of volumetric reductions in these regions to IQ and performance on the California Verbal Learning Test-Childrens Version (CVLT-C), a list learning task sensitive to PAE. High-resolution T1-weighted images were acquired, using a sequence optimized for morphometric neuroanatomical analysis, on a Siemens 3T Allegra MRI scanner from 71 right-handed, 9- to 11-year-old children [9 fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), 19 partial FAS (PFAS), 24 non-syndromal heavily exposed (HE) and 19 non-exposed controls].

When HRP was injected intraperitoneally (i.p.), labelled amoeboid microglial cells (AMC) were consistently localized in the subcortical white matter and circumventricular zones in early postnatal (1 and 7 days old) but absent in late postnatal (14-day-old) rats. The ingested HRP disappeared from the labelled cells 5 days after IP injection. Subcutaneous injection of HRP had also resulted in the labelling of amoeboid microglial cells in the corpus callosum of early postnatal rats. When the injected HRP was followed ultrastructurally over a time course sequence in intravenously (i.v.) injected rats, it was first detected in the invaginations on the luminal side of endothelium and in the endothelial cytoplasm 30 min after injection. HRP was present both in the endothelium and amoeboid microglial cells 3 hours later. With time, the tracer was progressively accumulated in the cytoplasm of AMC and it was sequestered in the vacuoles and lysosomes. It is concluded from this study that when injected ...
Why do humans born without the corpus callosum, the major interhemispheric commissure, lack the disconnection syndrome classically described in callosotomized patients? This paradox was discovered by Nobel laureate Roger Sperry in 1968, and has remained unsolved since then. To tackle the hypothesis that alternative neural pathways could explain this puzzle, we investigated patients with callosal dysgenesis using structural and functional neuroimaging, as well as neuropsychological assessments. We identified two anomalous white-matter tracts by deterministic and probabilistic tractography, and provide supporting resting-state functional neuroimaging and neuropsychological evidence for their functional role in preserved interhemispheric transfer of complex tactile information, such as object recognition. These compensatory pathways connect the homotopic posterior parietal cortical areas (Brodmann areas 39 and surroundings) via the posterior and anterior commissures. We propose that anomalous brain

Longitudinal callosal fascicles (or Probst bundles) are abnormal collections of brain cells characteristic of patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum. Failure of the callosally-projecting neurons (mostly layer 2/3 pyramidal neurons) to extend axons across the midline and therefore form the corpus callosum[clarification needed] results in anomalous collection of these axonal projections in both hemispheres. Longitudinal callosal fascicles were originally described by Moriz Probst in 1901 by gross anatomical observation. More recently, these anomalies are detected by Magnetic Resonance Imaging or Diffusion Tensor Imaging. Probst, M. (1901), Über den Bau des vollständig balkenlosen Großhirns, Arch Psychiatr, 34: 709-786, doi:10.1007/bf02680175 Barkovich, AJ.; Norman, D.

Comments IH. For conditions with a completely unknown genetic architecture, smaller family studies that do not satisfy the criteria of genome-wide linkage may be helpful in pointing out candidate genes. However, it should also be kept in mind that these findings may be false positive.. Agenesis of corpus callosum. The corpus callosum is the fiber track that connects both cerebral hemispheres. It is a brain structure that is particularly vulnerable in brain development. If the corpus callosum has not developed at all, this is referred to as agenesis of corpus callosum (ACC), which is a finding in many complex genetic syndromes. However, there are also patients who have ACC, but no other neurological or syndromic features. In a family with isolated ACC published in the European Journal of Human Genetics, Jouan and collaborators identify a compound heterozygous mutation in CDK5RAP2. This gene is also known as MCPH3 and was previously reported to cause autosomal recessive microcephaly ...

The corpus callosum is the major interhemispheric commissure in the human brain, comprising ∼3 million myelinated fibers that connect homologous regions in the neocortex. To date, ,50 different human congenital syndromes have been described (for review, see Richards et al., 2004) in which dysgenesis or partial agenesis of the corpus callosum occurs. In these syndromes, callosal axons approach but are unable to cross the midline at the corticoseptal boundary and instead form disorganized bundles of axons (Probst bundles) on the ipsilateral side. Failure of callosal midline crossing and Probst bundle formation have also been seen in mice lacking a variety of axon guidance receptors, including the netrin receptor DCC (deleted in colorectal cancer), the repulsive guidance receptors EphB2 and EphB3, and the semaphorin receptor neuropilin-1 (for review, see Richards et al., 2004). Thus, a variety of molecular navigational systems govern the axon pathfinding of callosal axons as they approach and ...
Children with hydrocephalus have deficits in several neuropsychological domains. The most notable are motor, visuoperceptual, and visuomotor function. These deficits are multiply determined and depend on the etiology and severity of the hydrocephalus to a large extent. Corpus callosum abnormalities resulting from stretching of callosal fibers and other cortical white matter tracts are implicated as contributory to these deficits. Enlarged ventricles and associated compression of posterior cortical areas also correlate with cognitive impairment. Distinguishing which cognitive domain negatively impacts on the childs functioning and which domains influence behavior in isolation or in combination has been the subject of numerous studies. Developmentally, we know little about the emergence of neuropsychological functioning in children with hydrocephalus.

There is no need to apply external (Φ0/2) magnetic flux to the qubit loop to achieve the • opposite circulating currents at the same time. As is known that, in order to apply external (Φ0/2) magnetic flux to the qubit loop, rather complicated, high sensitive and expensive techniques have been used. On the other hand, the existence of opposite circulating orbital currents (clock wise and anti-clock wise) at the same time has been achieved spontaneously by the weakly coupled π -junctions in the mercury cuprates at the TPME. 7.

IIDepartment of Psychology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada. To the Editor: The hippocampus is that part of the limbic system responsible for short-term and spatial memory. Increased activation of the hippocampus and related structures during seizures and REM sleep has been demonstrated in functional MRI (fMRI) studies. In fact, the hippocampus is particularly susceptible to electrical overstimulation and seizure sequelae. The dorsal extension of the hippocampus (the indusium griseum also called the supracallosal gyrus) comprises two thin grey-matter strips that overlay the corpus callosum; it is a vestigial structure of unknown function in the postnatal brain.. A popular theory in neuroscience literature, proposed first by David Chamberlain1 and later by Michael Persinger,2 is that the indusium griseum plays a functional role in the developing fetus; it is viewed primarily as the embryonic equivalent of the adult hippocampus and secondarily as the sensory homunculus of the fetus. ...

The Internal Cerebral Veins (vv. cerebri internæ; veins of Galen; deep cerebral veins) drain the deep parts of the hemisphere and are two in number; each is formed near the interventricular foramen by the union of the terminal and choroid veins. They run backward parallel with one another, between the layers of the tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, and beneath the splenium of the corpus callosum, where they unite to form a short trunk, the great cerebral vein; just before their union each receives the corresponding basal vein.. The terminal vein (v. terminalis; vena corporis striati) commences in the groove between the corpus striatum and thalamus, receives numerous veins from both of these parts, and unites behind the crus fornicis with the choroid vein, to form one of the internal cerebral veins. The choroid vein runs along the whole length of the choroid plexus, and receives veins from the hippocampus, the fornix, and the corpus callosum. ...

Summary: Contrary to the established view, researchers report a split brain does not cause split consciousness in patients.. Source: University of Amsterdam.. A new research study contradicts the established view that so-called split-brain patients have a split consciousness. Instead, the researchers behind the study, led by UvA psychologist Yair Pinto, have found strong evidence showing that despite being characterised by little to no communication between the right and left brain hemispheres, split brain does not cause two independent conscious perceivers in one brain. Their results are published in the latest edition of the journal Brain.. Split brain is a lay term to describe the result of a corpus callosotomy, a surgical procedure first performed in the 1940s to alleviate severe epilepsy among patients. During this procedure, the corpus callosum, a bundle of neural fibres connecting the left and right cerebral hemispheres, is severed to prevent the spread of epileptic activity between the ...

Ive (ADHD individual) been taking Adderall XR at night as a sleep aid for several years. Its the only thing that reliably helps me go to bed. Its not just a matter of sedative vs. stimulant (although the sedating effects do play a role), but in my experience its also that these medications help block out distractions and slow down the racing, daydreaming, ADHD mind.. Also, the neurological impulses that tell your body and mind to sit down and shut up are probably similar to the ones that tell your body and mind to lay down and go to sleep.. One odd note…I used to take Adderall XR 3 times a day on 8 hour intervals (it only lasts 8 hours for me). Oddly enough, I would sometimes find myself shifted and sleep during one of the daytime dose intervals, and my body would then register that as the night/sleep shift with regards to circadian rhythms, and adjust accordingly. ...

Split-brain patients like PS thus unlocked another mystery of the mind; or rather, the two minds. They showed that the two hemispheres store and process different types of information, and that when the connections between the two hemispheres are broken, each one can act independently of the other. For those of us with an intact corpus callosum, however, the hemispheres share information to such a large extent that calling someone left-brained or right-brained just doesnt make sense. The idea that the left-brain is logical and controls all language, and the right brain is completely arty and just wants to do those kind of creative things-thats way, way overblown, says Kean. ...
