[Epilepsy caused by retrosplenial tumor]

HALÁSZ Péter, JANSZKY József, BÓDIZS Róbert, BARSI Péter, SZŰCS Anna, STEINECKER Katalin

[We present a patient in whom retrosplenial tumour was associated with epileptic symptoms characterized by complex partial seizures and widespread interictal and ictal epileptiform EEG abnormalities The patient had verbal memory deficit symptoms as well. After surgical removal of the tumour (oligoastrocytome) the clinical symptoms and EEG signs disappeared. The characteristics of our patient demonstrate the possible role of the retrosplenial area in widespread epileptic symptoms and in the... tovább »

[Neurological aspects of some sleep disorders]

SZŰCS Anna

[My aim is to examine the relation between some sleep disorders and neurological diseases; to analyse their mutual interactions in order to achieve new practical data for clinical use. In the theoretical part I summarise some main points of sleep physiology concentrating on the associations of sleep regulation and neurological diseases. In my examinations, besides clinical methods, the most important tools used are sleep analyses performed by polysomnography and MESAM IV as well as brain... tovább »

[Effect lesions of extrahypothalamic brain structures on testicular functions in rats with special emphasis on asymmetry]

BANCZEROWSKI Péter, GERENDAI Ida

[Introduction - The aim of our studies was to investigate the involvement of extrahypothalamic brain structures in the control of testicular functions with special emphasis on the effect of right- and left-sided structures. Material and method - We performed lesion of the insular cortex, the amygdala, interrupted part of nerve fibers to and from the insular cortex, and cut the major commissural pathway of the brain the corpus callosum in adult male rats and studied the effect of the... tovább »

[Neuroprotection in brain ischemia - doubts and hopes]

ZÁDOR Zsolt, BENYÓ Zoltán, LACZA Zsombor, HORTOBÁGYI Tibor, HARKÁNY Tibor

[In ischaemic stroke the two major potential therapeutic strategies are aimed at either improving cerebral blood flow or directly interacting with the cytotoxic cascade - a large body of evidence gained from animal studies is in support of them. In clinical trials direct neuroprotection by blocking the neurotoxic cascade remained ineffective, although there are several clinical trials still in progress. We summarize the experimental data and present the results of clinical trials and also... tovább »

[INTRODUCTION - In order to obtain more information concerning the pathogenic significance of ganglioside GM1 in multiple sclerosis serum polyclonal IgG and IgM antibodies to GM1 were evaluated in multiple sclerosis patients with relapsing-remitting and secondary progressive forms of the disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS - The evaluated sera were from 55 patients with clinically definite multiple sclerosis and from 20 healthy subjects. Forty-two of patients were with relap-sing-remitting and 13... tovább »
