Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) are a promising therapeutic intervention for stroke. The involvement of the anti-inflammatory effects of HDACi in their neuroprotection has been reported, but the underlying mechanisms remain uncertain. Because post-stroke inflammation is a time-dependent process starting with acute and intense inflammation and followed by prolonged and mild inflammation, we proposed whether targeting the early inflammatory response could achieve the neuroprotection of HDACi.… Read More...

Abstract

Background

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by neuronal loss in the extrapyramidal system with pathologic accumulation of tau in neurons and glia. The most common clinical presentation of PSP, referred to as Richardson syndrome, is that of atypical parkinsonism with vertical gaze palsy, axial rigidity, and frequent falls.… Read More...

Abstract

Background

Progressive supranuclear palsy is a neurodegenerative tauopathy manifesting clinically as a progressive akinetic‐rigid syndrome. In this study, we sought to identify genetic variants influencing PSP susceptibility through a genome‐wide association analysis of a cohort of well‐characterized patients who had participated in the Neuroprotection and Natural History in Parkinson Plus Syndromes and Blood Brain Barrier in Parkinson Plus Syndromes studies.… Read More...

Objective

To explore the neuropsychological correlates and implications of familial hemiplegic migraines (FHMs).

Background

FMH is a rare, autosomal dominant subtype of migraine that only occurs in 0.01% of the population. Little is known about the neuropsychological impact of FHMs; however, cognitive impairment associated with cerebellar syndrome has been identified in some cases.… Read More...

Background: The short-term risk of ischemic stroke in patients with left ventricular (LV) thrombus identified via delayed-enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance (DE-CMR) imaging is uncertain. Methods: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent DE-CMR for evaluation of LV systolic dysfunction at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell between 2007 and 2016.… Read More...
