The article cites a study that aims to determine the incidence of brain damage as judged by psychological testing in a group of patients with long-term insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The investigation was carried out in the Diabetic Clinic of the Birmingham General Hospital in Birmingham, England. Patients were selected on the basis of the duration of their illness. No relationship was found between the age, duration of illness or sex of the patient and a score within the brain damage range of the Walton-Black scale.

    Summary¶ S-100B is described to provide information about the severity of brain damage in man. Estimation of serum markers appears to be an easy method of obtaining information regarding severity and outcome after head injury. However less is known about the post traumatic time course of this...

    The role of sensorimotor (S-M) areas in the specification of kinematic parameters for aiming movements was studied by comparing the performance of six subjects with unilateral stroke to that of matched control subjects. Rapid arm movements were made to one of four targets by rotating the forearm...

    Left unilateral neglect is a neurological condition characterized by an impairment in orienting and responding to events occurring on the left side. To gain insight into the brain mechanisms of space processing and to provide theoretical foundations for patient rehabilitation, it is important to...
