  • The idea first began circulating in the neuroscience community after some split-brain patients exhibited the alien hand syndrome, which led some scientists to believe that there must be two separate consciousnesses within the brain's left and right hemispheres in competition with one another once the corpus callosum is severed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Split-brain patients have been subjects for numerous psychological experiments that sought to discover what occurs in the brain now that the primary interhemispheric pathways have been disrupted. (wikipedia.org)
  • For most cases, corpus callosotomies did not in any way affect patients' real world functioning, however, those psychology experiments have demonstrated some interesting differences between split-brain patients and normal subjects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alien hand syndrome has been documented in some split brain patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brain metastases have a poor prognosis for cure, but modern treatments are allowing patients to live months and sometimes years after the diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because different parts of the brain are responsible for different functions, symptoms vary depending on the site of metastasis within the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Paresthesias: patients often present with (hemiparesis), or weakness on only one side of the body, which is often a result of damage to neighboring brain tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anticonvulsants - Anticonvulsants should be used for patients with brain metastases who experience seizures, as there is a risk of status epilepticus and death. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is not recommended to prophylactically give anti-seizure medications when a seizure has not yet been experienced by a patient with brain metastasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, this phenomenon occurs in patients with advanced brain tumor or severe head injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • All types of brain tumors may produce symptoms that vary depending on the part of the brain involved. (wikipedia.org)
  • indications
  • Materials and Methods The activity of deploying orthopedic surgeons during the three recent major external operations (Afghanistan, Mali, and Central African Republic) has been retrospectively recorded in terms of global volume, types of trauma, status of patients who had been operated on, and indications. (deepdyve.com)
  • epilepsy
  • The diminished life expectancy associated with epilepsy patients has been documented by population-based studies in Europe. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesions
  • Lumbar pain and lower body weakness is also a rarity in astroblastoma patients, even though it is entirely possible for lesions to proliferate toward the spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumors
  • Calcification deriving from nervous system tumors is a rare quality in astroblastoma patients, but it is nonetheless easy to identify. (wikipedia.org)
  • abnormal
  • Multiloculated hydrocephalus (MLH) is a condition in which patients have multiple, separate abnormal cerebrospinal fluid collections with no communication between them. (jkns.or.kr)
  • cases
  • In these cases, the patients often do not present to medical care until days or even weeks after the initial bleed. (nervous-system-diseases.com)
  • These side effects are often controlled by either altering the administered dose (decreasing or in some cases, increasing the dose) or by administering other sedatives that allow the patient to tolerate or lose awareness of the side effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients with arachnoid cysts may never show symptoms, even in some cases where the cyst is large. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • however, psychomotor retardation is a very serious problem in these patients. (jkns.or.kr)

  • days
  • Kantrowitz's transplant attempt was only the second time that a human heart had been transplanted into another human being, taking place just three days after Christiaan Barnard's groundbreaking transplant in South Africa with patient Louis Washkansky who lived for 18 days and which made headlines around the world. (wikipedia.org)

  • occurs
  • Ataxia: when metastasis occurs to the cerebellum, patients will experience various difficulties with spatial awareness and coordination. (wikipedia.org)

  • These patients often have a depressed level of consciousness, usually in some level of coma. (nervous-system-diseases.com)
  • The most common side effects reported by patients receiving this medication are a sense of extreme "dizziness" (often short lived, a common side effect of other fast-acting synthetic phenylpiperidine narcotics such as fentanyl and alfentanil) and intense itching (pruritus), often around the face. (wikipedia.org)

  • Approximately
  • Approximately 80 patients were tested in this way in Japan during the period 1948-1954, using doses of 50 to 300 mg. of 10 per cent Sodium Amytal, and no complications were encountered. (thejns.org)

  • In addition, patients may experience adverse side effects from these drugs, such as myopathy and opportunistic infections, which can be alleviated by decreasing the dose. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
