The ability to walk safely, easily, and in an aesthetically pleasing manner is
a skill learned early and highly prized. Although it is typically taken for
granted, gait is key to mobility and functional independence and at the
core of our ability to carry out many activities of daily living. In older adults
and patients with neurological deficits, ease and safety in walking may
become compromised, and gait is often viewed as abnormal, i.e., as a disorder.
While not an inevitable part of aging, gait disorders are common
among older adults and in patients with neurological disease.
Diseases of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) include a large spectrum of
acquired and inherited disorders mainly characterized by fluctuating muscle
weakness and fatigability of ocular, bulbar or limb muscles. Remarkable
progress has been made in our understanding of the pathogenesis of these
disorders in recent years.
Language allows the communication and elaboration of thoughts and experiences by linking them to arbitrary symbols known as words. The neural substrate of language is composed of a distributed network centered in the perisylvian region of the left hemisphere.
The posterior pole of this network is located at the temporoparietal junction and includes a region known as Wernicke's area. An essential function of Wernicke's area is to transform sensory inputs into their lexical representations so that these can establish the distributed associations that give the word its meaning. ...
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by an
inflammatory process associated with mucosal damage. Many studies have
shown that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) possess anti-inflam-matory effects in inflammatory bowel disease.
