[Sexological problems in neurological disorders: neurosexology]

GYURIS Jenő

[The author has examined this complex subject-matter as he has not found any publications dealing with the interconnection between neurology and sexuality in the Hungarian literature available to him. Healthy sexual behavior determines the individual’s quality of life. This, however requires a coordinated, complex functioning bound to very complex structures and their unimpaired functions: peripheral receptor→ peripheral nerve→radix→spinal cord→ definite, functionally interrelated structures of... tovább »

[Pompe’s disease - Part II - Treatment strategies and enzyme replacement]

ILLÉS Zsolt, VÁRADI VISY Katalin

[Pompe’s disease is an ultra-orphan disease caused by the deficiency of lysosomal alpha-glucosidase. At present, it is the only inherited muscle disorder, which can be treated by replacement of the enzyme. Three international randomized trials examined the clinical efficacy of enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in infantile and late-onset diseases. ERT reduced the risk of death, respiratory support, invasive ventilation and improved cardiomyopathy. Respiration, muscle function and quality of life... tovább »

[Actigraphy: A valuable diagnostic tool or a luxury investigation? (Neuropsychiatric aspects)]

RAJNA Péter, SZOMSZÉD Anita

[Aim - Despite of the continuing interest in actigraphy it has a relatively low impact on the everyday medical routine. Accordingly, we set out to review the current state and to recommend relevant further indications for its application, especially in neuropsychiatry. Method - We surveyed the areas of its use and then reviewed the literature, with special regard to its advantages and methodological limitations. Adding to the results we enlarged the results with our own personal experience.... tovább »

ERÕSS Loránd, ENTZ László, FABÓ Dániel, JAKUS Rita, SZŰCS Anna, RÁSONYI György, KELEMEN Anna, BARCS Gábor, JUHOS Vera, BALOGH Attila, BARSI Péter, CLEMENS Zsófia, HALÁSZ Péter

[Objectives - To investigate interhemispheric propagation of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy seizures in patients undergoing long-term video-EEG monitoring with combined scalp and foramen ovale electrodes. Aim of the study - To reveal possible interhemispheric propagation patterns in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy, to improve presurgical evaluation of temporal epileptic patients. Methods - Sixty-five seizures from 20 patients were analyzed. We defined two contralateral seizure propagation... tovább »

[The transcription of the amyloid precursor protein and tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase genes are increased by aging in the rat brain]

KÁLMÁN Sára, PÁKÁSKI Magdolna, SZŰCS Szabina, GARAB Dénes, DOMOKOS Ágnes, ZVARA Ágnes, PUSKÁS László, BAGDY György, ZELENA Dóra, KÁLMÁN János

[Aging itself is considered as a major risk factor of dementia. The prevalence of the Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is increasing exponentially after the age of 65 and doubles every 5 years. The major aim of our present research was to examine the effect of aging on the transcription of certain genes associated with neurodegenerative disorders in the rat brain. The influence of the vasopressin (VP) hormone was also examined in the same experimental paradigm. Age dependent transcriptional changes of... tovább »
