A AlaviM Reivich

PMID: 2935938

Abstract

The (F-18) fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) technique to measure local cerebral metabolic rate for glucose (LCMRglu) is well accepted and widely used by many institutions around the world. A large number of studies has been carried out in normal volunteers and patients with a variety of CNS dis...read more

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Paranoid Disorders

Paranoid disorders are psychiatric disorders with the suspicion and belief that others are plotting against them, leading to mistrust of others. These symptoms of paranoia can be seen in other psychiatric disorders including dementia and schizophrenia. Here is the latest research on paranoid disorders.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

Neonatal Seizures

Neonatal seizures are the most common neurological emergency in the neonatal period and are associated with a poor long-term outcome. Discover the latest research on neonatal seizures here.

Huntington Disease

Huntington disease is a hereditary neurodegenerative disease characterized by poor coordination and involuntary body movements. Discover the latest research on Huntington disease here.

Alzheimer's Disease: Neuroimaging

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. Here is the latest research on neuroimaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, in AD.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.

Electroencephalography

Electroencephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological technique used to record electrical activity in the brain. It is commonly used in the diagnosis of epilepsy, sleep disorders, coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. Find the latest research on EEG here.

Triplet Repeat Disorders

Triplet Repeat Disorders are genetic disorders that occur as a result of expansion of trinucleotide repeats in certain genes. Examples include Huntington’s disease, certain types of spinocerebellar ataxia, and Fragile X syndrome, among others. Here is the latest research.

Myopathies

Myopathies are genetic or acquired disorders of skeletal muscle that lead to varying degrees of weakness, atrophy, and exercise intolerance. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
