Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic brain diseases and is often associated with cognitive, behavioral, or other medical conditions. The need for therapies that would prevent, ameliorate, or cure epilepsy and the attendant comorbidities is a priority...

Disrupted Pallido-Thalamo-Cortical Functional Connectivity in Chronic Disorders of Consciousness.

Brain sciences

PMID: 33799582
Brain Sci. 2021 Mar 11;11(3). doi: 10.3390/brainsci11030356.

Chronic disorders of consciousness (DOC) encompass unresponsive wakefulness syndrome and minimally conscious state. Their anatomo-functional correlates are not clearly defined yet, although impairments of functional cortical networks have been reported, as well as the implication of the thalamus and...

Resting-State Functional Connectivity following Phonological Component Analysis: The Combined Action of Phonology and Visual Orthographic Cues.

Brain sciences

Masson-Trottier M, Sontheimer A, Durand E, Ansaldo AI.
PMID: 34827457
Brain Sci. 2021 Nov 02;11(11). doi: 10.3390/brainsci11111458.

Anomia is the most frequent and pervasive symptom for people with aphasia (PWA). Phonological component analysis (PCA) is a therapy incorporating phonological cues to treat anomia. Investigations of neural correlates supporting improvements following PCA remain scarce. Resting-state functional connectivity...

Perineuronal Net Dynamics in the Pathophysiology of Epilepsy.

Epilepsy currents

Epilepsy Curr. 2021 May 27;21(4):273-281. doi: 10.1177/15357597211018688. eCollection 2021.

Perineuronal nets (PNNs) are condensed extracellular matrix (ECM) assemblies of polyanionic chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans, hyaluronan, and tenascins that primarily wrap around GABAergic parvalbumin (PV) interneurons. During development, PNN formation terminates the critical period of neuroplasticity, a process that can...
