    Peter Novak
    Department of Neurology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA 01655, USA
    BMC Neurol 12:131. 2012
    ..Activation of microglia and production of toxic cytokines suggest a role of neuroinflammation in MSA pathogenesis. This pilot clinical trial evaluated safety and tolerability of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) in MSA...
  2. pmc Assessment of sympathetic index from the Valsalva maneuver
    Peter Novak
    Autonomic Center, University of Massachusetts, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, MA 01655, USA
    Neurology 76:2010-6. 2011
    ..Blood pressure (BP) decline and recovery during the Valsalva maneuver (VM) are used to evaluate the degree of sympathetic failure (SF) but a reliable sympathetic index (SI) derived from VM is lacking...
  3. pmc Localization of the subthalamic nucleus in Parkinson disease using multiunit activity
    Peter Novak
    Dept of Neurology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, MA 01655, USA
    J Neurol Sci 310:44-9. 2011
    ..The commonly used criteria for electrophysiological localization of the STN are qualitative. The goal of this study was to validate quantitative STN detection algorithm (QD) derived from the multi-unit activity in a prospective setting...

    Peter Novak
    Department of Neurology, University of Massachusetts, University Campus, S4 810D, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, MA, United States
    Neurosci Lett 463:12-6. 2009
    ..Our study provides direct electrophysiological evidence that the STN HFS is associated with increased activity of the contralateral STN. These findings suggest that increased STN output underlies therapeutic mechanisms of action of HFS...
