[CONSCIOUSNESS AND ALTERED CONSCIOUSNESS]

SZIRMAI Imre, KAMONDI Anita

[The notion of consciousness in the English scientific literature denotes a global ability to consciously perform elementary and intellectual tasks, to reason, plan, judge and retrieve information as well as the awareness of these functions belonging to the self, that is, being self-aware. consciouness can also be defined as continuous awareness of the external and internal environment, of the past and the present. The meaning of consciouness is different in various languages, but it invariably... tovább »

[A NEURO-MECHANICAL TRANSDUCER MODEL FOR CONTROLLING JOINT ROTATIONS AND LIMB MOVEMENTS]

LACZKÓ József, KERRY Walton, RODOLFO Llinas

[Here we report on the development of an integrated general model for the control of limb movements. The model computes muscle forces and joint rotations as functions of activation signals from motoneuron pools. It models the relationship between neural signals, muscle forces and movement kinematics by taking into account how the discharge rates of motoneuron pools and the biomechanical characteristics of the musculoskeletal system affect the movement pattern that is produced. The lengths and... tovább »

[COMPLEX TREMOR ANALYSIS FOR THE DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF ESSENTIAL TREMOR AND PARKINSON’S DISEASE]

FARKAS Zsuzsanna, CSILLIK Anita, PÁLVÖLGYI László, TAKÁCS Annamária, SZIRMAI Imre, KAMONDI Anita

[Objective - Tremor is the most common movement disorder which is most often either essential or caused by Parkinson’s disease. The differentiation of these disorders at the initial stage may be difficult. Objective assessment of the efficacy of tremor medications is only possible by instrumental measurements. The aim of this study was to determine whether the computer assisted tremor analysis system CATSYS 2000 can help in the differentiation of parkinsonian from essential tremor. Methods -... tovább »

[THE SIGNIFICANCE OF CHLAMYDIA PNEUMONIAE IN SELECTED NEUROLOGIC DISORDERS]

HORVÁTH Zoltán, VÉCSEI László

[Chlamydia pneumoniae has recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of several neurological diseases. As an intracellular parasite with its unusual life cycle it is able to circumvent the immune system and to persist in the organism. It has the ability to modify the function of the infected cell and supposedly induce autoimmune reactions. These properties can make it pathogenic in several chronic neurological diseases including multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, stroke, Alzheimer dementia... tovább »
