Case Study
Supratentorial hemangioblastomas (HBs) are exceedingly rare tumors accounting for 5%-10% of all HBs and usually present in the setting of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. Isolated HBs of the central nervous system also occur as a result of spontaneous mutation in the absence of any clinical manifestations of VHL disease. Of 13 temporal lobe HBs, only one non-VHL case was reported in the hippocampus. We describe the TRICKS findings in a case of isolated he- mangioblastoma in the hippocampus without VHL disease. To our knowledge, this is the second case report of a hippocampal non-VHL hemangioblastoma.

    Background: Cavernous malformations (CMs) are not uncommon, but most of them are found to be located intracranially. Intramedullary CMs are rare, accounting for only 3-5% of identified total central nervous system lesions. The natural history of intramedullary CMs and their clinical features,...

    The chromogranin/secretogranin family of proteins is widely distributed in the central nervous system, where they are stored in large dense-core vesicles. These proproteins are actively processed into small neuroactive peptides, which influence neurotransmitter release, microglial activation and...

    Cortical and hippocampal gamma oscillations have been implicated in many behavioral tasks. The hippocampus is required for spatial navigation where animals run at varying speeds. Hence we tested the hypothesis that the gamma rhythm could encode the running speed of mice. We found that the...

    Stem cells capable of proliferating along neuronal and glial lines persist in the adult central nervous system (CNS). These cells are found pedominantly in the subventricular zones and in the hippocampus. The therapeutic potential of both endogenous and exogenous stem cells in achieving repair...

    Neurons can produce action potentials with high temporal precision[SUP1]. A fundamental issue is whether, and how, this capability is used in information processing. According to the 'cell assembly' hypothesis, transient synchrony of anatomically distributed groups of neurons underlies...

    We demonstrate here the importance of interleukin signalling pathways in cognitive function and the normal physiology of the CNS. Thorough investigation of an MRX critical region in Xp22.1?21.3 enabled us to identify a new gene expressed in brain that is responsible for a non-specific form of...
