Reply: Thalamotomy for tremor normalizes aberrant pre-therapeutic visual cortex functional connectivity.

Normalization of aberrant pretherapeutic dynamic functional connectivity of extrastriate visual system in patients who underwent thalamotomy with stereotactic radiosurgery for essential tremor: a resting-state functional MRI study.

OBJECTIVEThe tremor circuitry has commonly been hypothesized to be driven by one or multiple pacemakers within the cerebello-thalamo-cortical pathway, including the cerebellum, contralateral motor tha...

Microstructural changes of the dentato-rubro-thalamic tract after transcranial MR guided focused ultrasound ablation of the posteroventral VIM in essential tremor.

Essential tremor is the most common movement disorder in adults. In patients who are not responsive to medical treatment, functional neurosurgery and, more recently, transcranial MR-guided focused ult...

Leksell Radiosurgery for Movement Disorders.

Tremor is the most prevalent movement disorder in adults. Patients who are refractory to medical management can explore surgical intervention. Deep-brain stimulation (DBS) and radiofrequency thalamoto...

Transcranial Magnetic Resonance-Guided Focused Ultrasound Thalamotomy in Essential Tremor: A Comprehensive Lesion Characterization.

Transcranial magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (tcMRgFUS) thalamotomy is a novel and effective treatment for controlling tremor in essential tremor patients.

Mapping Functional Networks of Brain Activity Using EEG in Patients With Essential Tremor or Parkinson Disease Before and After MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Thalamotomy for Tremor

A cornerstone in PD and ET research is the investigation of neurophysiological changes as potential bio-markers that could help in tracking disease progression and response to therapy. Ele...

Regional Non-comparative Prospective Study of the Impact of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery on Tremor in Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis, chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, affects approximately 100,000 peoples in France. It is the leading cause of disability in young adults. Trem...

Evaluation of Bilateral Gamma Knife Thalamotomy in Patients Presenting With Severe Essential Tremor

Essential tremor (ET) is the most frequent movement disorder. Its prevalence is about 1/200 implying that at least 300 000 peoples are concerned in France. Its frequency increase with age ...

RAD 1601: Edge Radiosurgery for Tremor

To determine the efficacy of frameless Virtual Cone Radiosurgical Thalamotomy for medically refractory essential tremor with the Fahn-Tolosa-Marin Tremor Rating Scale (FTMTRS) in patients ...

Bilateral Treatment of Medication Refractory Essential Tremor

The purpose of this study is to see if the MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) thalamotomy procedure can be performed on both sides of the brain safely and effectively to reduce bilatera...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A composite area of the cerebral cortex concerned with motor control and sensory perception comprising the motor cortex areas, the somatosensory areas, the gustatory cortex, the olfactory areas, the auditory cortex, and the visual cortex.

The electric response evoked in the cerebral cortex by visual stimulation or stimulation of the visual pathways.

A nonspecific term referring to impaired vision. Major subcategories include stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia and toxic amblyopia. Stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia is a developmental disorder of the visual cortex. A discrepancy between visual information received by the visual cortex from each eye results in abnormal cortical development. STRABISMUS and REFRACTIVE ERRORS may cause this condition. Toxic amblyopia is a disorder of the OPTIC NERVE which is associated with ALCOHOLISM, tobacco SMOKING, and other toxins and as an adverse effect of the use of some medications.

The functional superiority and preferential use of one eye over the other. The term is usually applied to superiority in sighting (VISUAL PERCEPTION) or motor task but not difference in VISUAL ACUITY or dysfunction of one of the eyes. Ocular dominance can be modified by visual input and NEUROTROPHIC FACTORS.

Artificial device such as an externally-worn camera attached to a stimulator on the RETINA, OPTIC NERVE, or VISUAL CORTEX, intended to restore or amplify vision.
