Atypical Motor Neuron Disease variants: Still a diagnostic challenge in Neurology.
Authors: Pinto WBVR, Debona R, Nunes PP, Assis ACD, Lopes CG, Bortholin T, Dias RB, Naylor FGM, Chieia MAT, Souza PVS, Oliveira ASB Abstract Motor neuron disease (MND) represents a wide and heterogeneous expanding group of disorders involving the upper or lower motor neurons, mainly represented by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis, progressive muscular atrophy and progressive bulbar palsy. Primary motor neuronopathies are characterized by progressive degenerative loss of anterior horn cell motoneurons (lower motor neurons) or loss of giant pyramidal Betz cells (upper motor neurons).

Functional mapping of the human insula: Data from electrical stimulations.
Authors: Mazzola L, Mauguière F, Isnard J Abstract Electrical stimulations of the insula performed during stereo-electro-encephalography (SEEG) reproduce the ictal symptoms observed during the development of insular seizures and are also a unique opportunity to provide a functional mapping of the insular cortex. We provide here a functional mapping of the insular cortex obtained by electrical stimulation, based on our previous work and a review of literature. The most frequent responses to insula stimulation were somatosensory sensations followed by visceral responses. Then, in decreasing order of frequency,...

Malformations of cortical development: The role of 7-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosis.
Authors: Guye M, Bartolomei F, Ranjeva JP Abstract Comparison studies between 7T and 1.5 or 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have demonstrated the added value of ultra-high field (UHF) MRI to better identify, delineate and characterize malformations of cortical development (MCD), and to disambiguate doubtful findings observed at lower field strengths. High resolution structural sequences such as magnetization prepared two rapid acquisition gradient echoes (MP2RAGE), fluid and white matter suppression MP2RAGE (FLAWS), and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) appear to be key to the improvement of MCD diagnosis i...

Malformations of cortical development: New surgical advances.
Authors: Bourdillon P, Rheims S, Catenoix H, Montavont A, Ostrowsky-Coste K, Isnard J, Guénot M Abstract Epilepsy related to malformations of cortical development is frequently drug resistant or requires heavy medication, therefore surgery is key in their management. The role of stereotactic surgery has recently changed the diagnosis and treatment of focal cortical dysplasias (FCD), hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) and periventricular nodular heterotopias (PNH). In HH, radiosurgery using Gammaknife® leads to 60 % of seizure control and is associated with excellent neuropsychological results without sign...

Attention disorders in adults with epilepsy. Determinants and therapeutic strategies.
Authors: Brissart H, Forthoffer N, Maillard L Abstract Cognitive consequences in epilepsy are often described in the following domains: verbal memory, language, executive functions, and attention. Attention is involved in all cognitive activities, and attention disorders (AD) are reported in patients with various neurological diseases. This paper proposes to define the concept of AD and its assessment, to consider their determinants in epilepsy and potential therapies (drug or not). ADs are reported in new onset epilepsy, generalized epilepsy of presumed genetic origin, and in focal epilepsy. In focal epilepsy, ale...

Semiology of insular lobe seizures.
Authors: Isnard J, Hagiwara K, Montavont A, Catenoix H, Mazzola L, Ostrowsky-Coste K, Guenot M, Rheims S Abstract After the early attempts of intra-operative electrocorticography and insulectomy in the 1950s, the notion of insular lobe seizures was largely forgotten for decades. It is only since the late 1990s that the recent technique of stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) enabled preoperative diagnosis of insular origin seizures and thus gave rise to a renewed interest for this ill-defined electroclinical entity. Owing to the multiple functional roles of insula and its extensive connectivity with adjacent as wel...

Resective surgery in tuberous Sclerosis complex, from Penfield to 2018: A critical review.
Authors: Ostrowsky-Coste K, Neal A, Guenot M, Ryvlin P, Bouvard S, Bourdillon P, Jung J, Catenoix H, Montavont A, Isnard J, Arzimanoglou A, Rheims S Abstract Medically treated patients suffering from tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) have less than 30% chance of achieving a sustained remission. Both the international TSC consensus conference in 2012, and the panel of European experts in 2012 and 2018 have concluded that surgery should be considered for medically refractory TSC patients. However, surgery remains currently underutilized in TSC. Case series, meta-analyses and guidelines all agree that a 50 to 60% chanc...

The "split brain" and Roger Wolcott Sperry (1913-1994). Rev Neurol (Paris). 2019 Jan 04;: Authors: Pearce JMS, FRCP Abstract The concepts of cerebral localization were established in the early 19th century. From these arose the idea that the dominant (usually left) hemisphere mainly subserved functions of cognition and language. The "relatively retarded right hemisphere" by contrast was mute, agraphic, apraxic, and lacking generally in higher cognitive function. This essay sketches the import of the work of Sperry and colleagues on patients subjected to callosal section eg., "s...

Two compounds are currently available for the treatment of ALS but the majority of trials have failed to show a positive effect on prognosis.

Electrophysiology in diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain.
Authors: Garcia-Larrea L, Hagiwara K Abstract Electrophysiological techniques demonstrate abnormalities in somatosensory transmission, hence providing objective evidence of 'somatosensory lesion or disease' which is crucial to the diagnosis of neuropathic pain (NP). Since most instances of NP result from damage to thermo-nociceptive pathways (thin fibres and spino-thalamo-cortical systems), specific activation of these is critical to ensure diagnostic accuracy. This is currently achieved using laser pulses or contact heat stimuli, and in a near future probably also with contact cold and intra-epidermal low-intensit...

Non pharmacological treatment for neuropathic pain: Invasive and non-invasive cortical stimulation.
Authors: Moisset X, Lefaucheur JP Abstract The use of medications in chronic neuropathic pain may be limited with regard to efficacy and tolerance. Therefore, non-pharmacological approaches, using electrical stimulation of the cortex has been proposed as an alternative. First, in the early nineties, surgically-implanted epidural motor cortex stimulation (EMCS) was proven to be effective to relieve refractory neuropathic pain. Later, non-invasive stimulation techniques were found to produce similar analgesic effects, at least by means of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) targeting the primary motor...

Then, a plethora of studies around the world looking at pain sensations and their brain correlates was published. Four kinds of studies can be distinguished: i) A first set investigated brain responses to noxious heat stimulations (above the pain threshold) relative to an equivalent warm innocuous stimulation (below the pain threshold). The aim of these studies was to identify the pattern of brain regions involved in the nociceptive processes and they may be considered as descriptive studies rather than ...
