- Is San Francisco's âThe Shaking Manâ an urban depiction of parkinsonism? [Journal Article]
- Arq Neuropsiquiatr 2013 Apr; 71(4):261-3.
Art and Medicine often mingle in the most unexpected ways. One can often find in pictorial art the representation of many medical conditions. The same can happen with sculptures; however, the finding of an urban sculpture in a public space with features of parkinsonism is unique. We reported how "The Shaking Man", an urban sculpture located in the Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco, USA, is a contemporary representation of parkinsonism and compared it with other art works in different media that also present such thing to laymen.
- Neurological contributions from William Osler. [Journal Article]
- Arq Neuropsiquiatr 2013 Apr; 71(4):258-60.
William Osler was one of the most remarkable clinicians worldwide, and his teachings in medical practice remain until the present days. Although Osler had never considered himself a neurologist, he contributed with clinical and pathological descriptions of numerous neurological diseases. He performed more than 800 autopsies studies of the nervous system and published over 200 articles in the field of Neurology. In this article, we described the main neurological contributions from William Osler.
- Primary central nervous system lymphoma: what a neurologist/neurosurgeon should know? [Journal Article]
- Arq Neuropsiquiatr 2013 Apr; 71(4):254-7.
Primary central nervous system lymphoma is a rare disease, with bad prognosis. Neurologists and neurosurgeons should be familiar with the diagnostic,and biologic features, as well as the initial management of patients. A correct approach to these patients is mandatory for a better outcome.
- Raphe obscurus neurons participate in thermoregulation in rats. [Journal Article]
- Arq Neuropsiquiatr 2013 Apr; 71(4):249-53.
In mammalian, several evidences suggest that central serotonin participates in thermoregulation. Nucleus raphe obscurus (NRO), a serotonergic nucleus, has been recognized to be the source of generation of various hemodynamic patterns in different behavioral conditions, but its involvement in thermoregulation is unclear. In the present study, extracellular action potentials of NRO neurons were recorded in anesthetized rats, which were submitted to cold and warm stimuli in the tail. The firing rate of the neurons was compared before and after each stimulation. It was found that 59% of the neurons submitted to a cold stimulus trial had a significant increase in their firing frequency, while 48% of the neurons submitted to warm stimulation trial were inhibited. The opposite responses in neuronal activity of NRO units to cooling or heating suggest that these cells are involved in producing the homoeothermic vascular adaptations secondary to changes in cutaneous temperature in the rat tail.
