Background The ability to maintain balance in an upright stance gradually worsens with age and is even more difficult for patients with cognitive disorders. Cognitive impairment plays a probable role in the worsening of stability. The purpose of this study was to expose subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and healthy, age-matched controls...

Ability of humans to maintain balance in an upright stance and during movement activities is one of the most natural skills affecting everyday life. This ability progressively deteriorates with increasing age, and balance impairment, often aggravated by age-related diseases, can result in falls that adversely impact the quality of life. Falls repre...

The human postural control system represents a biological feedback system responsible for maintenance of upright stance. Vestibular, proprioceptive and visual sensory inputs provide the most important information into the control system, which controls body centre of mass (COM) in order to stabilize the human body resembling an inverted pendulum. T...
Article
Falls are a common complication in Huntington's disease (HD) and detection of postural instability (PI) may be useful for identifying patients who are at risk of falls. The aim of our study was to find the most sensitive clinical test for PI in patients with HD and to correlate PI with the other symptoms. 20 HD patients were examined using: (1) The...
Article
A case of Gliomatosis cerebri is reported. Clinical diagnosis was based on magnetic resonance imaging findings reinforced by pathological-anatomical autopsy findings. The diagnosis of gliomatosis cerebri is based on pathological-anatomical autopsy (infiltration of the CNS by tumours including glial cells) the clinical pattern and magnetic resonance...
Article
We report a case of a patient with recurrent states of confusion which only began at an advanced age. Based on EEG, absence status epilepticus was determined to be the cause of the above states. Judging by the nature of the ictal and interictal EEG finding and a history of absence episodes in childhood and adolescence, this appeared to be a case of...
