- T2*-weighted MRI differentiates multiple system atrophy from Parkinson's diseaseEduard Kraft
Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany
Neurology 59:1265-7. 2002..Hypointense putaminal signal changes were more often observed in MSA than in PD using T2* but not T2-weighted images, indicating that T2*-weighted GE sequences are of diagnostic value for patients with parkinsonism...
- Cortical plasticity in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: motor imagery and functionDorothee Lule
Section of Neurophysiology, Univeristy of Ulm, Ulm, Germany
Neurorehabil Neural Repair 21:518-26. 2007..Cortical networks underlying motor imagery are functionally close to motor performance networks and can be activated by patients with severe motor disabilities...
- Motor recovery and cortical reorganization after constraint-induced movement therapy in stroke patients: a preliminary studyJudith D Schaechter
Massachusetts General Hospital NMR Center, Department of Radiology, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA
Neurorehabil Neural Repair 16:326-38. 2002..These data provide preliminary evidence that gains in motor function produced by CIMT in chronic stroke patients may be associated with a shift in laterality of motor cortical activation toward the undamaged hemisphere...
- Emotional responding in amyotrophic lateral sclerosisDorothee Lule
University of Ulm, Dept of Neurology, Oberer Eselsberg 45, 89081 Ulm, Germany
J Neurol 252:1517-24. 2005..These findings contradict assumptions of a generally negative impact of the disease on the emotional disposition and may indicate compensatory cognitive or neuroplastic changes...
