[Synchronized, oscillatory brain activity in visual perception]

BRAUNITZER Gábor

[The present study investigates one of the most promising developments of the brain-mind question, namely the possible links between synchronized oscillatory brain activity and certain (visual) perceptual processes. Through a review of the relevant literature, the author introduces the reader to the most important theories of coherent perception (’binding‘), and makes an attempt to show how synchronization of EEG-registrable oscillatory activities from various frequency bands might explain... tovább »

[Antiepileptic drugs as mood stabilizers: what did we learn from the epileptology?]

RAJNA Péter

[Author summarizes the practical aspects of psychiatric application of mood stabilizing antiepileptic drugs. He observes how to transfer experiences taken from the “epileptological” practice into the psychiatric care of bipolar patients. He shortly demonstrates the relevant information on the mechanisms of action, controversies and possible clinical effects influenced by the seizure inhibiting effect of the concerning molecules. By the opinion of the author the clinical importance of... tovább »

[Paraneoplastic chronic demyelinating neuropathy and lambert-eaton myasthenic syndrome associated with multiple anti-neural antibodies and small-cell lung cancer]

RÓZSA Csilla, VINCENT Angela, ARÁNYI Zsuzsanna, KOVÁCS G. Gábor, KOMOLY Sámuel, ILLÉS Zsolt

[Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) developed in a patient with presumed chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and negative chest CT. Since antibodies against both Hu and voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC) were detected, repeated chest CT was performed, which eventually showed a pulmonary mass lesion. Biopsy revealed small cell lung cancer (SCLC) indicating the importance of repeated chest CT in LEMS even when an existing autoimmune-like disease and negative CT may... tovább »
