[Study of brain surface cooling in patients with epilepsy]

PÁSZTOR Emil, TOMKA Imre

[In patients with epilepsy during surgical exploration, surface cooling of the brain was performed with cold physiological kitchen salt during ECOG registration. 1. A gradual decrease in the amplitude of ECOG activity with insignificant or mild changes in frequency was observed after local surface cooling. No progressive development of slow waves was observed. 2. One to two minutes of brain surface cooling can temporarily suspend the electrical activity of a highly active epileptic focus.... tovább »

[Apparently sex-linked inheritance of Huntington's chorea ]

LÉNÁRD Lili

[The analysis of the family tree does not overturn the classic theory that the dominant inheritance of an autosomal gene is responsible for the transmission of Huntington's disease. Such a distribution of the sexes could be produced by the random dispersal of an autosomal dominant gene. Actio of modifier genes is also possible. A simple factor localised in the ivari chromosome, as in the case of haemophilia or colour blindness, is not indicated by the pedigree. However, the exclusivity of... tovább »

[Cerebral radiocirculography]

PÁLVÖLGYI Richárd, HERNÁDY Tibor

[The authors give a brief overview of the different methodologies for the study of the cerebral circulation with radioactive isotopes. They discuss in more detail Eichhorn's radiocirculography method, which, in addition to its simplicity, provides valuable data on the cerebral circulation.]

[Treatment of childhood organic cerebral lesions and cerebral dysfunction with Mydeton]

KISS Zoltán

[Mydetone has been tested - at an average daily dose of 0.3 gr (3 x 2 tbl) - in 120 children with organic cerebral damage and cerebral function disorders. 21 patients (18%) became symptom-free or improved to a great extent, 87 patients (72%) improved, 12 patients (10%) unchanged. Experience to date has shown that Mydetone is a useful aid in natal and postnatal forms of aperture. It has been shown to be effective in epileptics when used as an adjuvant. And in paroxysmal atypical seizures, it... tovább »
