A Critical View of Neurofeedback Experimental Designs: Sham and Control as Necessary Conditions

Marta Alino, Marien Gadea and Raul Espert

Article Type: Short Note | First Published: February 27, 2016

Neurofeedback (NF) emerged to employ neural feedback via EEG as an evolution of biofeedback in the 1960. Specifically, NF entails to learn to self-control the brain activity according to operant principles through a visual, auditory or even tactile representation of participant's brain activity as a feedback, with the aim of improving mental states, whether or not in clinical conditions....

Introducing a Developed Model of Reversible Cardiac Arrest to Produce Global Brain Ischemia and Its Impact on Microtubule-Associated Protein Tau Phosphorylation at Ser396

Shohreh Majd, John H. Power, Simon A. Koblar and Hugh J. M. Grantham

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 26, 2016

Brain ischemia is a consequence of stroke and cardiac arrest (CA), leading to short and long-term neurological impact involving cognitive function as well as dementia. An accurate, simple and reproducible model of CA ischemia and reperfusion is valuable in assessing the response to ischemia and therapeutic interventions. In the current study the effectiveness of a reversible model of CA has been assessed through examining the brain response in expressing tau and hyperphosphorylated tau (p-tau) p...

Ruptured Anterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery Aneurysm

Masaru Honda and Takeo Anda

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 30, 2016

A 85-year-old woman was accepted to our institute with complaints of a headache and vomiting after vertigo and left ear tinnitus. Computed tomography (CT) revealed subarachnoid hemorrhage. CT angiography identified an aneurysm at meatal loop of the left anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA). A surgical trapping of aneurysm was performed via retrosigmoid craniectomy. The aneurysm was covered by thinned acoustic nerve and clot was found on the surface of the aneurysm, which penetrated the ner...

Lateral Basal Space and Interlaminar Fatty Compartment of the Deep Cervical Fascia in the Posterolateral Craniocervical Junction - An Anatomical Basis for the Surgery in the Lateral Skull Base

Katsuyoshi Shimizu, Akira Wada, Mika Kushamae, Ryo Irie, Yuta Kawauchi, Yu Kato, Kazuki Iizuka, Minako Kubo, Yu Sakamoto, Hiromitsu Ezure, Naruhito Otsuka, Tohru Mizutani

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 27, 2016

In the lateral suboccipital area, the restricted space filled with thick muscles, and dangerous structures prevents neurosurgeons to attain safe and successful surgery. Now we have focus on the disposition of fascial layers and potential spaces of the deep cervical fascia in the posterolateral region of the craniocervical junction, which has barely been described before. Investigation with 32 lateral suboccipital surgical cases and 7 cadaveric dissections has revealed the detailed anatomy in thi...

Aggravated Hashimoto Thyroiditis and Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy in Postpartum Period: Case Report

Serhan Yildirim, Ahmet Sukru Kulualp, Rahsan Adviye Inan, Alper Arslan and Ulku Turk Boru

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 09, 2016

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is an autoimmune disease characterized with multifocal demyelination in peripheral nerves. Hashimoto thyroiditis is autoimmune disease of thyroid gland. We reported a patient having these diseases together in the postpartum period. Twenty-three year-old female patient presented with progressive weakness in lower extremities and walking disability for three months. Symmetric weakness (4/5) in both flexor and extensors of ankle and t...

Inhalable Curcumin is an Efficacious Treatment Strategy for Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1-Induced Neuropathology

Isamu Mori

Article Type: Hypothesis | First Published: January 07, 2016

Turmeric, which is derived from the root of the Curcuma longa plant, is one of the most widely used spices worldwide. Scientists from various disciplines have long studied the medicinal benefits of a polyphenol extract from Curcuma longa, curcumin. It has been shown to have a broad spectrum of pharmacological activities in cancer, inflammation, and Alzheimer's disease (AD). In an epidemiological study, continuous curcumin intake improved cognitive function in aged individuals....
