  1. ncbi request reprint A preliminary understanding of mania: roles for melatonin, vasotocin and rapid-eye-movement sleep
    C P Maurizi
    Department of Pathology, Houston Medical Center, Warner Robins, GA 31093, USA
    Med Hypotheses 54:26-9. 2000
    ..Decreased melatonin production with malfunction of REM sleep is proposed to be a cause of sudden infant death syndrome and Alzheimer's disease, because the loss of the antioxidant function of melatonin allows brain injury to occur...
  2. ncbi request reprint Alzheimer's disease: roles for mitochondrial damage, the hydroxyl radical, and cerebrospinal fluid deficiency of melatonin
    C P Maurizi
    Department of Pathology, Houston Medical Center, Warner Robins, GA 31093, USA
    Med Hypotheses 57:156-60. 2001
    ..Results from initial therapeutic trials of melatonin in Alzheimer's disease patients have demonstrated improved function, decreased 'sundowning', improved sleep, and a significant slowing of the progression of the disease...
  3. ncbi request reprint Postencephalitic Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis on Guam and influenza revisited: focusing on neurofibrillary tangles and the trail of tau
    C P Maurizi
    Department of Pathology, Houston Medical Center, Warner Robins, GA 31093, USA
    Med Hypotheses 58:198-202. 2002
    ..Tangles contain abnormally phosphorylated tau. In Alzheimer's disease, tau is present in cerebrospinal fluid and is deposited in corpora amylacea, demonstrating the direction of cerebrospinal fluid flow...
  4. ncbi request reprint The puzzle of where cerebrospinal fluid is absorbed: new pieces
    C P Maurizi
    Department of Pathology, Houston Medical Center, GA 31093, USA
    Med Hypotheses 60:102-3. 2003
    ..Photomicrographs of a suprapineal recess portal into the third ventricle are presented. A cycling theory of CSF assigns function to the structure of the choroid fissures and the suprapineal recess...
  5. doi request reprint Influenza caused epidemic encephalitis (encephalitis lethargica): the circumstantial evidence and a challenge to the nonbelievers
    C P Maurizi
    Med Hypotheses 74:798-801. 2010
    ..Theories about the pathophysiology of encephalitis lethargica and postencephalitic Parkinson's disease are offered...
  6. doi request reprint Choroid plexus portals and a deficiency of melatonin can explain the neuropathology of Alzheimer's disease
    Charles P Maurizi
    Med Hypotheses 74:1059-66. 2010
    ..Challenges of the embedded dogma of the arachnoid granule absorption of cerebrospinal fluid have been ignored; however this old faulty theory must be abandoned in order to understand the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease...
  7. doi request reprint Arachnoid granules: Dandy was Dandy, Cushing and Weed were not
    Charles P Maurizi
    Med Hypotheses 75:238-40. 2010
    ..The choroid plexus portal theory can explain the findings in the low-pressure experiments of Weed. Bias and pride seem to be the source of the faulty theory. Entrenched dogma is resistant to challenge...
