ABSTRACT
Cortical laminar necrosis is characterized by destruction of different layers of the cerebral cortex; most prominently the third layer is affected. We report here a case of a patient who suffered severe hypoxic encephalopathy secondary to cardio respiratory arrest due to bupropion and alcohol overdose and in whom cerebral MR showed changes compatible with cortical laminar necrosis.

    Background: The release of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) appears depend on the P2X7 receptor, a purinergic receptor. In the present study, we addressed the question of whether P2X7 receptor-mediated TNF-α regulation is involved in pathogenesis and outcome of status epilepticus (SE)....

Here we postulate that while reward circuits (nucleus accumbens, amygdala), which have been central to theories of drug addiction, may be crucial to...

    Functional hemispherectomy, a safe and effective therapeutical procedure in medically intractable epilepsy, offers the chance to investigate a strictly unilateral cortical activation in ipsilateral limb movement. We assessed the pattern of cortical activation in a group of patients following...

    In a previous work, we introduced a computational model of area 3b which is built upon the neural field theory and receives input from a simplified model of the index distal finger pad populated by a random set of touch receptors (Merkell cells). This model has been shown to be able to...

    Searching for and recognising objects in complex natural scenes is implemented by multiple saccades until the eyes reach within the reduced receptive field sizes of inferior temporal cortex (IT) neurons. We analyse and model how the dorsal and ventral visual streams both contribute to this....

    Paired associative stimulation (PAS) can increase motor cortical excitability, possibly by long-term potentiation (LTP)-like mechanisms. As the capability of the cortex for plasticity decreases with age, we were interested here in testing interindividual variability and age-dependency of the PAS...
