Toxoplasmosis has been considered the 20th century parasitic disease, with a seroprevalence of 25-30% of the world human population, and 50%-75% in Cuba. Despite the large number of cases, Toxoplasma gondii is not well known by the general population or even the medical personnel, a fact of which Cuba is not an exception. The objectives of the stud...

The opioid crisis is a growing social and public health phenomenon, particularly in developed countries such as the United States. Since the 1990s, this crisis has shown a variety of causal processes and consequences and has affected quality of life for millions of individuals, families, and communities across the globe. Although abuse of opioid‐ba...

We studied autistics by quantitative EEG spectral and coherence analysis during three experimental conditions: basal, watching a cartoon with audio (V–A), and with muted audio band (VwA). Significant reductions were found for the absolute power spectral density (PSD) in the central region for delta and theta, and in the posterior region for sigma a...

Antecedentes: El trastorno del espectro autista (TEA) es complejo trastorno del neurodesarrollo que se caracteriza clínicamente por dificultades de la interacción social, alteraciones del lenguaje, variados estereotipos de comportamiento, y déficits cognitivos. Hoy en día muchos autores consideran a TEA como una “epidemia” a nivel mundial. Muchos a...

In this study we will try to show you some facts, commentaries and technological approaches, related with the study of that frequently forgotten, but integral and vital part of our Nervous System: the Autonomic Nervous System, in such a sensible, complex and challenging Medical Problem: the Autism Spectrum Disorder. A standard query to the Pubmed N...

Abstract: In the last twenty years, the use of qEEG has been progressively incorporated for the study of brain functions in patients with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), but the software for EEG processing is usually dependent of commercial hardware, and the software proprietary code is not known (not open source) and, it rarely can be optimized...

Abstract The EEG has not been comprehensively used to study the brain function in Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) patients. Therefore, the researchers recently developed a specifically designed software (EEGConn) to explore brain function based on advanced algorithms to explore EEG activity. They studied a group of 14 righthanded autistic patients...

Objective: To assess the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in coma by heart rate variability (HRV). Methods: Sixteen comatose patients and 22 normal subjects with comparable ages and genders were studied. Patients were classified in two subgroups according to the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Time, frequency, and informational HRV domain indices were c...

Introduction: In the human being, transition from the supine to the standing position, involves a lot of subtle physiological mechanisms that modify the cardiovascular functional state to adapt the individual to the orthostatic challenge. Objective: To assess and compare the response to the active orthostatic test in control healthy subjects and in...
