[Study of the antiepileptic effect of Seduxen (Chronic Diazepam treatment)]

HALÁSZ Péter, MOLNÁR Gyula, HIDASI József

[The most striking feature of the clinical and EEG effects of Sx is the initial strong antiepileptic effect, followed by a return of seizures as the EEG deteriorates. Similar experiences were reported by Trolle (1965), who, after a pause in the treatment, observed a return to the initial good effect on renewed administration. The findings of our EEG studies suggest not simply a loss of effect due to chronic use, but that after a while the effect of Sx is reversed and now no longer improves but... tovább »

[Mental hygiene (mental health protection) some questions on the organisation of ]

PANETH Gábor

[We can only talk about modern standards in the psychiatric sector of health care for the population if we set our approach and organisation at the level of mental hygiene. This is a major challenge, partly because of a lack of vision, decades of neglect and serious cadre problems, and partly because of the proliferation of problems in this area. In this overview study, we will discuss in general terms the problems, facts and ideas that the mental hygiene doctor working in this field... tovább »

[Distribution of "external" cholinesterase activity in the brainstem and telencephalon of the domestic rabbit based on histochemical studies]

PAPP Mátyás

[According to Gerebtzoff, using the modified Koelle method, it can be shown in the rabbit CNS that the cell clusters with "external" cholinesterase activity are roughly identical to the termination sites of the cholinesterase-containing systems (ascending cholinergic reticular system, cholinergic limbic system) described in Shute and Lewis in the rat. Some bundles of fibres belonging to these cholinesterase-containing systems can be observed without pathological evidence.]

ZONDA Tamás, SZABÓ Endre

[Authors describe the literature on the pathology of essentialis familiaris myoclonus and the evolution of the concept of the pathology. They share their own observed cases within a family. They discuss diagnostic difficulties and differential diagnosis of the syndrome. They describe the hereditary history of their family. ]

[The operation of the neurological institutes in 1967 ]

SIMEK Zsófia

[1. The tasks set for the I.I.s can only be achieved if in the coming years local administrations make it possible to have a psychiatrist (in care) for every 40-50 000 inhabitants. Debrecen and Budapest are currently the closest to this, but in most counties (especially those without a mental health bed) it is a major problem to achieve this. To achieve this plan would require about 250 psychiatrists working in the care network. At the beginning of 1968 (including hospital psychiatrists) the... tovább »

[Electrophysiological changes after local electron irradiation of the brain]

PÁSZTOR András, TOMKA Imre, SARKADI Ádám

[The somatosensory area of the cat brain was irradiated with electron beams from a Van de Graaf generator. The electroencephalographic changes following irradiation were studied using chronic epidural and deep electrodes. 1. Within the 50-210 Krad radiation range, the higher the radiant intensity applied, the sooner the irritative phase occurred and the more pronounced the activation of the curves. 2. 3. The excitatory stage was followed by a depressive EEG phase lasting one to two days,... tovább »

[Data on the characteristics of memory in old age]

DRIETOMSZKY Jenő

[The author tested memorization using Ranschburg's method in 420 elderly c. He obtained an average score of 65.83% in the elderly, compared to an average of 86% in the mature age group. There is an appreciable correlation between the rate of decline and educational attainment. On the basis of a semantic analysis of the word pairs in the original test, five new tests were constructed according to the same principles as the original. Using these, the difference between the logical and... tovább »
