Pharmacologically induced increases in neuronal activity are followed by rebound sleep. Galanin-positive neurons are active during rebound sleep and galanin expression is increased. Galanin is required for homeostatic sleep rebound following both drug-induced neuronal activity and physical sleep deprivation.

A fluorescence photomicrograph (ultramicroscopy) demonstrating cerebral blood vessels (red) and Abeta amyloid (green) in the cerebral cortex of a transgenic mouse with the APPDutch mutation in the amyloid precursor protein. Vascular Abeta deposition started in large superficial arteries with few affected small penetrating vessels.… Read More...

Purpose: We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic yield of epilepsy gene panel testing in epilepsy patients whose seizures began within the first year after birth. We included 112 patients with seizure onset before 12 months and no known etiology.

Methods: Deep targeted sequencing with a custom-designed capture probe was performed to ensure the detection of germline or mosaic sequence variants and copy number variations (CNVs).… Read More...

Purpose: High dose monotherapies or drug combinations are used to achieve sufficient analgesia for the treatment of severe chronic low back pain, before invasive therapy options are considered. In order to demonstrate an alternative for an empirical treatment approach, the authors’ primary aim was to present an algorithm for the objective identification of treatment predictors.… Read More...

Background: The presence of brain amyloid-beta positivity is associated with cognitive impairment and dementia, but whether there are specific aspects of cognition that are most linked to amyloid-beta is unclear. Analysis of neuropsychological test data presents challenges since a single test often requires drawing upon multiple cognitive functions to perform well.… Read More...

The social and financial burden of stroke is remarkable. Stroke is a leading cause of death and long-term disability worldwide. For several years, intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (IV rt-PA) remained as the only proven therapy for acute ischemic stroke. However, its benefit is hampered by a narrow therapeutic window and limited efficacy for large vessel occlusion (LVO) strokes.… Read More...
