[Data on the symptoms of damage to the gyrus cinguli and the medial cerebral sulcus]

GERÉB Tibor

[Clinical symptoms of the medial surface of the left hemisphere were analyzed in connection with an astrocytoma destroying the cingulitis of the left gyrus and the contiguous part of the medial surface of the forehead and wall lobe. Some of the epileptic seizures were introduced by euphoria as an aura. This can be interpreted based on the internal organ projection relationships of the medial brain surface, which is also supported by anatomical and experimental data. The onset of epileptic... tovább »

[Experimental data on the mechanism of the tetanus inhibitory reflex]

KIBÉDI Tibor, DIRNER Zoltán

[1. Our various tetanus interventions: During max. flexion, extension, trunk flexion, and slight compression of the chest, one or more muscle groups are always stretched. Prolongation of muscle or tendon is an adequate stimulus of proprioceptive receptors. Proprioceptive stimuli trigger the tetanus reflex. 2. Tetanus inhibition lasts only as long as the muscle is kept stretched. 3. During inhibition, the animal is capable of appropriate reflex movement. 4. The anti-tetanus reflex, when properly... tovább »

[Hemispherical tuberculoma]

SZABÓ Gyula

[Its frequency is shown differently by statistics of different authors. Their ratio to total tumors of the brain, according to Anglo-Saxon authors (1), is 1.5% -3.6%. In data from Soviet neurosurgical institutes (2), 2.1–3.4% of all brain tumors were tuberculoma. The reason for the differences in the statistics is that tuberculoma often does not undergo neurosurgery but is detected only by autopsy.]

[Brain tumour and pregnancy]

MAJERSZKY Klára

[1. Data from the literature differ on the association between brain tumor and pregnancy. Some say in animal experiments that pregnancy delays or has no effect on tumor growth, others say it specifically accelerates it. Few cases have been reported in humans in which pregnancy did not adversely affect brain tumor symptoms. In 80% of adverse events, childbirth exacerbated brain tumor symptoms. 2. In 14 years among 221 women with brain cancer , 17 pregnant, resp. we observed patients who already... tovább »
