- Hemiplegic migraine: hyperperfusion and abortive therapy with intravenous verapamilDavid A Hsu
Department of Neurology H6 526, University of Wisconsin, 600 Highland Avenue, Madison, WI 53792, USA
Brain Dev 30:86-90. 2008..The beneficial effect of verapamil on headache but not hemiplegia suggests a distinct mechanism for pain and neuronal dysfunction in hemiplegic migraine, with the beneficial effect on pain not due to vasodilation...
- The dentate gyrus as a filter or gate: a look back and a look aheadDavid Hsu
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, 600 Highland Avenue, H6 526, Madison, WI 53792, USA
Prog Brain Res 163:601-13. 2007..The dentate-hilar complex thus plays the role of a "pattern excluder", not a pattern completer. The unique role of pattern exclusion may explain the peculiar qualities of dentate granule cells and hilar mossy cells...
- Simple spontaneously active Hebbian learning model: homeostasis of activity and connectivity, and consequences for learning and epileptogenesisDavid Hsu
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin 53792, USA
Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys 76:041909. 2007..Based on our simulations, we predict that the postseizural and postdeafferentation states should be supercritical and epileptogenic. Furthermore, interventions that boost spontaneous activity should be protective against epileptogenesis...
- An open hypothesis: is epilepsy learned, and can it be unlearned?David Hsu
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53792, USA
Epilepsy Behav 13:511-22. 2008..This response is a network-level effect. If epilepsy really is a learned response, then it should be possible to reverse it, that is, to unlearn epilepsy. Unlearning epilepsy may then provide a new approach to its treatment...
- Zwanzig-Mori projection operators and EEG dynamics: deriving a simple equation of motionDavid Hsu
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, Madison WI, USA
PMC Biophys 2:6. 2009..Potential applications are discussed, including applications to the theory of critical phenomena in the brain, Granger causality and Kalman filters.PACS code: 87.19.lj...
- Time-frequency analysis using damped-oscillator pseudo-wavelets: Application to electrophysiological recordingsDavid Hsu
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA
J Neurosci Methods 194:179-92. 2010..In general, we find that the damped-oscillator pseudo-wavelet is easy to use and is particularly suitable for problems where a wide range of oscillator frequencies is expected...
- Nonpharmacological treatment options for epilepsyRaj D Sheth
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Madison, WI 53792 5132, USA
Semin Pediatr Neurol 12:106-13. 2005..In addition, pyridoxine-dependent seizures are discussed as an example of an etiology of refractory seizures that responds well to replacement therapy...
- Is lower IQ in children with epilepsy due to lower parental IQ? A controlled comparison studyNatalie M Walker
Department of Neurology, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, WI, USA
Dev Med Child Neurol 55:278-82. 2013....
