Effects of Different Cognitive Trainings on Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment in the Elderly: A One-Year Longitudinal Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Study.

Effects of Different Cognitive Trainings on Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment in the Elderly: A One-Year Longitudinal Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Study. Med Sci Monit. 2018 Aug 08;24:5517-5527 Authors: Feng W, Wang D, Tang L, Cheng Y, Wang G, Hu G, Gong X, Cao X, Jiang L, Li C Abstract BACKGROUND Cognitive training has been focused on the interventions of amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) in recent years, with poor understanding. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study participants with aMCI were screened in a previous intervention trial. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was adopted to investigate effects of single-domain cognitive training (SDCT) and multi-domain cognitive training (MDCT) on aMCI and to explore potential mechanisms. RESULTS There were significant differences in the grey matter volume of the middle frontal gyrus, superior parietal lobule, inferior temporal gyrus, fusiform gyrus, and ventral V3 between the MDCT/SDCT group and the control group (P

The first pediatric case of leukoencephalopathy with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and lactate elevation (LBSL) from Turkey. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 216-220. Leukoencephalopathy with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and lactate elevation (LBSL) is defined as an autosomal recessive inheritance disorder characterized by slowly progressive cerebellar, pyramidal and dorsal column dysfunction. The diagnosis is based on specific magnetic resonanc...

To the Editor: Central nervous system pathologic and normal anatomy have long been regarded as essentially static when planning treatment —motion management was thought to be unimportant because physiologic processes such as respiration or peristalsis do not affect intracranial anatomy. Indeed, 3-dimensional rigid registrations between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans can be carried out with high d egrees of accuracy over months and years to permit the re-establishment of stereotactic coordinates for guidance and monitoring (1).

We present the case of a 26-year-old man who sustained a high-pressure injection injury with hydraulic oil to the knee and a literature review of this type of accident. To our knowledge, this report is the first to describe such an injury to the knee, with magnetic resonance imaging findings.

Authors: Sun W, Sun L, Yang F, Zhao X, Cai R, Yuan W Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has been established as a modality to detect myocardial viability. The aim of this study was to evaluate myocardial viability by observing transmural extent of infraction and microvascular perfusion level. METHODS: We performed CMR in 30 myocardial infarction (MI) patients within 7-10 days. At the 6‑month follow-up, CMR was used to evaluate the impact of abnormal reperfusion and observe the transmural extent of infraction on recovery of function. RESULTS: The left ventric...

CONCLUSIONS: The 2 main pathophysiologic hypotheses of OCD seem to be related to each other as measured by LDAEP and fMRI OFC activity during the delay discounting task. This could be interpreted as a further hint that low serotonergic activity induces altered OFC responsivity, which has to be treated in each patient with OCD by a serotonin agonist.
