(Termedia Publishing House Ltd, 2015-01-01)
Context: Traumatic basal ganglia hemorrhage (TBGH) is a rare presentation of traumatic brain injury. Bilateral lesions are even rarer. Only twelve similar cases were previously published. Case report: We report the case ...
Nicotinamide prevents the long-term effects of perinatal asphyxia on basal ganglia monoamine systems in the rat
Asphyxia during birth can cause gross brain damage, but also subtle perturbations expressed as biochemical or motor deficits with late onset in life. Thus, it has been shown that brain dopamine levels can be increased or ...
Effects of Parkinson's disease in the perception of temporal aspects of speech
(Universidad de la Serena, Departamento de Artes y Letras, 2020-06-30)
The decrease in dopamine in the basal ganglia (BG) is the main cause of Parkinson's disease (PD). In addition to motor dysfunctions, individuals with PD have cognitive disorders that include deficits of attention and ...
Visual control of locomotion in people with Parkinson's disease
Vision is intricately linked with action and plays an essential role in guiding safe locomotion in humans. However, vision can influence locomotion of people with Parkinson's disease (PD) in two distinct manners. While ...
