[Reactivity, pharmacological influence and association with respiration of the periodic eeg complex in subacute panencephalitis]

FENYŐ Egon, HASZNOS Tivadar

[1. The stimuli we used could not influence the shape or periodicity of the periodic complexes. It appears that periodic eeg phenomena in penencephalitis can no longer be provoked by external stimuli when periodicity is stable. 2. No rapid activity typical of the initial stage of barbiturate anaesthesia was seen in any of our patients after intravenous Evipan. The lack of rapid activity in response to Evipan is associated with panencephalitic cortical lesions. 3. After Megimide injection,... tovább »

[Text analysis of the diary of a schizophrenic patient ]

KUNCZ Elemér, THORDAI István

[Authors examine the diaries of 33-year-old female patients - 70 handwritten pages spanning a year - which can be used to track phases of immersion in a world of closed, autistic experience and self-medication tendencies. They find that, on the one hand, the diary as a form corresponds to a written monologue by which the patient, isolated from the outside world, deceives his own solitude, and, on the other hand, a certain striving for autonomy and the role of self-preservation tendencies can be... tovább »

[Amnesticus syndrome due to Härtel's alcohol injection ]

PAP Zoltán, ADLER Péter

[We reported a patient with severe trigeminal neuralgia in whom, by Härtel's method, part of the alcohol given into the Gasser's duct was presumably introduced into the cisterna chiasmatis and caused sterile meningitis, with encephalitis in the infundibulum area and severe damage to the mammillary bodies. This resulted in acute unconsciousness, febrile delirium, a slowly recovering foggy state of consciousness and a permanent amnestic syndrome. However, neuralgia - except for the unpleasant... tovább »

[Glioma behaviour in tissue culture]

PÁLYI Irén, TÓTH Géza, CSÁKY László, ÁFRA Dénes, ZOLTÁN László

[1. In tissue cultures of gliomas after a single high dose of 6000 r., phosphorus metabolism was investigated 6 and 22 h after irradiation. 2. After irradiation, glioma cultures showed higher activity in the acid-soluble phosphorus fraction than controls. The lipid and DNA fractions, on the other hand, had lower activity compared to controls. 3. Normal tissues show no consistent changes in their phosphorus metabolism after a single high dose of radiation. ]
