ABSTRACT Professor Charcot had several pupils in his famous neurological service at the Salp êtrière Hospital in Paris, France. Among them, Édouard Brissaud was one of Charcot ’ s favorite pupils, temporarily becoming his successor after Charcot ’ s death. Brissaud ’ s neurological contributions were significant, including the description of hemifacial spasm, “ geste antagoniste ” in dystonia, pseudobulbar affect, post-traumatic stress disorder, the Brissaud-Sicard syndrome, and Brissaud ’ s sign. Additionally, Brissaud was the first to suggest that Parkinson ’ ...

We describe their treatment and review the current literature on the use of ECT among patients with PD. CASE SERIES All six patients in our retrospective chart review received bitemporal modified brief pulse ECT. Prior to ECT, the patients underwent pre-ECT evaluation, which involved hemogram analysis, renal and liver function tests, fasting blood glucose analysis, chest X-ray (posteroanterior view), and serum electrolyte analysis, all of which were within the normal range for all six patients, and none of the patients showed evidence of raised intracranial pressure on fundoscopy examination. All patients provided written ...

Objective:To assess outcomes of patients with functional movement disorders (FMD) who underwent a one-week, inpatient motor retraining (MoRe) program.Background:FMD are characterized by abnormal, involuntary movements that cannot be attributed to an organic cause. Patients present with a variety of symptoms including tremor, dystonia, weakness, gait or speech disturbances. These disorders are commonly seen in neurological practice and prognosis is often poor. The MoRe program is a multidisciplinary rehabilitation program with daily physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. Normal mo...

Authors: Sharma M, Naik V, Deogaonkar M Abstract Deep brain stimulation (DBS) implantation surgery is an established treatment modality for a variety of medical refractory movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Essential tremors and Dystonia. Following the success of DBS in these movement disorders with a high rate of safety and efficacy, there is a resurgence of interest in the utility of this modality in other medical refractory disorders. Consequently, neuromodulation has been explored for a variety of refractory conditions such as neuropsychiatric disorders (major depressive disorders, obsessive- compu...
