Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: NeuroImage: ClinicalAuthor(s): N. Khalili, E. Turk, M.J.N.L. Benders, P. Moeskops, N.H.P. Claessens, R. de Heus, A. Franx, N. Wagenaar, J.M.P.J. Breur, M.A. Viergever, I. IšgumAbstractMR images of infants and fetuses allow non-invasive analysis of the brain. Quantitative analysis of brain development requires automatic brain tissue segmentation that is typically preceded by segmentation of the intracranial volume (ICV). Fast changes in the size and morphology of the developing brain, motion artifacts, and large variation in the field of view make ICV segmenta...

Conclusions: Based on the literature assessed, the Timed Up and Go is clinically applicable and reliable across multiple populations. The Timed Up and Go has a wide variety of clinical use making it a diverse measure that should be considered when choosing an outcome an activity based outcome measure. However, there are some limitations in the validity of the utilization of the Timed Up and Go to some populations due to a lack of data and/or poor choice of comparison outcome measures when assessing validity. Additional research is needed for young to middle aged adults. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION Outcome measures are ...

AbstractCurcumin is widely consumed in Asia either as turmeric directly or as one of the culinary ingredients in food recipes. The benefits of curcumin in different organ systems have been reported extensively in several neurological diseases and cancer. Curcumin has got its global recognition because of its strong antioxidant, anti ‐inflammatory, anti‐cancer, and antimicrobial activities. Additionally, it is used in diabetes and arthritis as well as in hepatic, renal, and cardiovascular diseases. Recently, there is growing attention on usage of curcumin to prevent or delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases. This...

Infarct locations in children with arterial ischemic stroke have primarily been reported to be lobar or in the basal ganglia, and those in patients with Down syndrome (DS) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) are typically wide and multiple. No solitary brain stem infarctions have ever been reported in children with DS until now. Here, we report a case of brain stem infarction in a 6-year-old boy with DS who had no cardiac, renal, or intestinal complications. He exhibited ataxic gait and medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) symptoms at first presentation.

Our objective is to study a 53-year-old woman with Down syndrome presented with massive lobar hematoma in the left fronto-parietal lobe, and who underwent craniotomy and hematoma evacuation. Histopathological diagnosis of surgical specimen was amyloid angiopathy. Postoperative magnetic resonance studies were performed. The lesion this time showed mixed intensity on susceptibility-weighted imaging. In addition, multiple hypointense lesions were evident. An old previously unidentified hemorrhage in the right temporo-parietal lobe was accompanied by superficial cortical siderosis.

Pawan Kumar, Inusha Panigrahi, Naveen Sankhyan, Chirag Ahuja, Prasoon K GoyadiJournal of Pediatric Neurosciences 2018 13(2):201-204 Down syndrome (DS), resulting from trisomy 21, is a common cause of mental retardation. Around 20,000 babies with DS are born every year in India. There is an increased risk of cerebral infarction in children with DS, the common causes being thromboembolism secondary to atrioventricular canal defects, right-to-left shunting, myocardial dysmotility, or cardiac valvular abnormalities. Stroke due to other causes can also occur in patients with DS, and one of these is moyamoya disease. This can b...

CONCLUSION: Many diseases can be associated with Moya-Moya syndrome. Symptomatic patients should undergo surgery, but the risk of postoperative complications appears to be greater than that encountered in patients with non-syndromic Moya-Moya angiopathy.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Exergames represent a way to perform physical activity through active video games, serving as potentially useful tool in the field of neurorehabilitation. However, little is known regarding the possible role of exergames in improving cognitive functions in persons suffering from neurological disabilities. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A search for relevant articles was carried out on PubMed/Medline, Scopus, PEDro, and Google Scholar. Only randomized controlled studies and non-randomized but controlled studies were retained. The following additional inclusion criteria were applied: studies focus...
