    • Assessment of factors that confound MRI and neuropathological correlation of human postmortem brain tissue 

      Grinberg, Lea T.; Amaro, Edson; Teipel, Stefan; Santos, Denis Dionizio dos; Pasqualucci, Carlos Augusto; Leite, Renata E. P.; Camargo, Celia Regina; Goncalves, Jaqueline Alba; Sanches, Ariadne Goncalves [UNIFESP]; Santana, Miriam; Ferretti, Renata E. L.; Jacob-Filho, Wilson; Nitrini, Ricardo; Heinsen, Helmut; Brazilian Aging Brain Study Grp (Springer, 2008-09-01)
      In spite of considerable technical advance in MRI techniques, the optical resolution of these methods are still limited. Consequently, the delineation of cytoarchitectonic fields based on probabilistic maps and brain volume ...

    • Melanopsin retinal ganglion cells are resistant to neurodegeneration in mitochondrial optic neuropathies 

      La Morgia, Chiara; Ross-Cisneros, Fred N.; Sadun, Alfredo A.; Hannibal, Jens; Munarini, Alessandra; Mantovani, Vilma; Barboni, Piero; Cantalupo, Gaetano; Tozer, Kevin R.; Sancisi, Elisa; Salomão, Solange Rios [UNIFESP]; Moraes, Milton Nunes de [UNIFESP]; Moraes-Filho, Milton Nunes de [UNIFESP]; Heegaard, Steffen; Milea, Dan; Kjer, Poul; Montagna, Pasquale; Carelli, Valerio (Oxford Univ Press, 2010-08-01)
      Mitochondrial optic neuropathies, that is, Leber hereditary optic neuropathy and dominant optic atrophy, selectively affect retinal ganglion cells, causing visual loss with relatively preserved pupillary light reflex. the ...

    • Primary lymphoma of the central nervous system: a clinical-pathological and immunohistochemical study of ten autopsy cases 

      Costa, Henrique; Franco, Marcello Fabiano de [UNIFESP]; Hahn, Myriam Dumas (Academia Brasileira de Neurologia - ABNEURO, 2006-12-01)
      CONTEXT: Primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSL) are a rare subgroup of lymphomas generally associated with HIV and EBV. OBJECTIVE: To study ten autopsy cases of PCNSL, to describe the neuropathological findings, ...

    • Safety and diagnostic accuracy of neuroendoscopic biopsies: an international multicenter study 

      Constantini, Shlomi; Mohanty, Aaron; Zymberg, Samuel Tau [UNIFESP]; Cavalheiro, Sergio [UNIFESP]; Mallucci, Conor; Hellwig, Dieter; Ersahin, Yusuf; Mori, Hiroshi; Mascari, Carmelo; Costa Val, Jose Aloysio; Wagner, Wolfgang; Kulkarni, Abhaya V.; Sgouros, Spyros; Oi, Shizuo (Amer Assoc Neurological Surgeons, 2013-06-01)
      Object. Analysis of the safety and morbidity of neuroendoscopic biopsies (NEBs), as well as the reliability in obtaining an accurate diagnosis, has until now been based on studies with relatively small sample sizes. Through ...

    • Sleep deprivation does not affect indices of necrosis or apoptosis in rat brain 

      Hipólide, Débora Cristina [UNIFESP]; D'Almeida, Vania [UNIFESP]; Raymond, Roger; Tufik, Sergio [UNIFESP]; Nobrega, J. N. (Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2002-02-01)
      Recent indications of oxidative stress in hypothalamus of sleep deprived rats prompted us to address the possibility that sleep deprivation may induce pathological cell loss changes in brain. Indices of necrosis and apoptosis ...
