The evolution of EEG/MEG source connectivity is both, a promising and controversial advance in the characterization of epileptic brain activity. In this narrative review we elucidate the potential of this technology to provide an intuitive view of the epileptic network at its origin, the different brain regions involved in the epilepsy, without the limitation of electrodes at the scalp level.… Read More...

Background: To determine whether utilizing high-resolution pulse oximetry is a viable method for evaluating the successful titration of oral appliances for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients.
Methods: Of 136 consecutive potentially eligible OSA patients, 133 were fitted with mandibular advancement devices (MADs), and 101 completed all phases of treatment.… Read More...

Objective: To estimate alterations in neurometabolic profile of patients with early stage Parkinson’s disease (PD) by using a short echo-time whole brain magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (wbMRSI) as possible biomarker for early diagnosis and monitoring of PD.
Methods: 20 PD patients in early stage (H&Y ≤ 2) without evidence of severe other diseases and 20 age and sex matched healthy controls underwent wbMRSI.… Read More...

Fetal nerve maturation is a dynamic process, which is reflected in fetal movement and fetal heart rate (FHR) patterns. Classical FHR variability (fHRV) indices cannot fully reflect their complex interrelationship. This study aims to provide an alternative insight for fetal neural development by using the coupling analysis of uterine electromyography (UEMG) and FHR acceleration.… Read More...

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) are rare group of genetic disorders comprising of more than 1000 different types. Around 200 of IEMs are potentially treatable through diet, pharmacological and other therapies, if diagnosed earlier in life. IEMs can be diagnosed early through newborn screening (NBS) programs, which are in place in most of the developed countries.… Read More...

Background: Surgical decision-making for brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) close to the corticospinal tract (CST) is always challenging. The purpose of this study was to develop a tractography-based grading scale to improve preoperative risk prediction and patient selection.
Methods: We analyzed a consecutive, surgically treated series of ninety patients with AVMs within 10-mm range from the CST demonstrated by preoperative diffusion tensor tractography.… Read More...

Background: Evidence for the effect of subclinical thyroid dysfunction on the prognosis of patients suffering from acute ischemic stroke and receiving reperfusion therapy remains controversial. We aimed to investigate the association between subclinical thyroid dysfunction and the outcomes of patients with acute ischemic stroke who were treated with reperfusion therapy.… Read More...
