    Focal lesions of brainstem, thalamus, and subcortical white matter may cause movement disorders that are clinically indistinguishable from cerebellar symptoms. It is suspected that ataxia in these cases is due to damage of efferent or afferent pathways of the cerebellum. However, the precise...

    Non-convulsive status epilepticus is seen in elderly patients who have not previously suffered from epilepsy. The seizures are usually provoked by an acute precipitating factor with underlying conditions such as cerebrovascular disease or brain tumours. Bowel-cleansing preparation has been used...

    Functional impairment after focal CNS lesion is highly dependent on damage that occurs in regions that are remote but functionally connected to the primary lesion site. This pattern is particularly evident in the cerebellar system, in which functional interactions between the cerebellar cortex,...
