Abstract

Following 2-4 years of hospitalization, the mental and physical ability of 21 patients with typical idiopathic PD, 10 patients with atypical Parkinson's syndrome and signs of cerebral arteriosclerosis, 29 patients with MID. and 14 patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type were evaluated according to various rating scales. All idiopathic parkinsonian patients had suffered from the disease for over 8 years. All patients were over 70 years of age and continuously subjected to the same environment. EEG and CT was performed. A rating scale consisting of 18 items for evaluation of the mental and physical capacity and ability to cope with daily psychosocial demands was used for each patient. Statistically highly significant differences resulted between the relative good mental ability of patients with idiopathic Parkinson's syndrome, with the exception of some brief pharmacotoxic psychoses, and the lower rating scores of patients with senile dementia of Alzheimer type and multiple infarction dementia. A smaller subgroup of patients with Parkinson's syndrome and additional focal signs in the neurological status and EEG showed moderate mental functional loss and a more frequent incidence of pharmacotoxic psychoses than the pat...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Epigenetic Memory

Epigenetic memory refers to the heritable genetic changes that are not explained by the DNA sequence. Find the latest research on epigenetic memory here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Femoral Neoplasms

Femoral Neoplasms are bone tumors that arise in the femur. Discover the latest research on femoral neoplasms here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
