This Viewpoint discusses the costs associated with care for chronic neurological illnesses for patients with health insurance exchange plans, established through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
This Viewpoint discusses amyotrophic lateral sclerosis as a syndrome rather than a single disease that requires varied diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
This prospective cohort study examines stroke care delivery and outcomes for patients with in-hospital vs community-onset stroke.
This retrospective observational study evaluates the long-term safety and efficacy of tocilizumab, a humanized antibody targeting the interleukin 6 receptor, in 8 female patients with neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and NMO spectrum disorder. See the Editorial by Vincent.
This randomized clinical trial evaluates the effect of standard vs modified antiplatelet preparation in patients with high on-treatment platelet reactivity undergoing coil embolization in unruptured aneurysms.
This retrospective cohort study reports that prior concussion resulting in loss of consciousness is a risk factor for increased hippocampal atrophy and the development of MCI. In individuals with MCI, hippocampal volume loss appears more prevalent among those with a history of concussion.
This genome-wide association study identifies 2 novel genes, PDE4DIP and ACOT4, that are associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke.
This retrospective study suggests that Lewy body–related phenotypes within Alzheimer disease may be useful in distinguishing the presence of comorbid Lewy body pathology.
This genetic study identifies the causative gene of spinocerebellar ataxia in 2 Japanese families with distinct neurological symptoms and radiological presentations.
This population-based study showed that celiac disease was associated with a 2.5-fold increased risk of later neuropathy, including chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy, autonomic neuropathy, and mononeuritis multiplex.
This Special Communication reports on the latest research in myasthenia, which results from dysfunction of the neuromuscular synapse (ie, the neuromuscular junction), causing clinical “fatigue” that is defined as muscle weakness that worsens with muscle use and improves with rest.
This review summarizes the literature on advanced quantitative imaging measures reported for patients with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, including proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy, diffusion tensor imaging, magnetization transfer imaging, quantitative magnetic resonance volumetry, and ultrahigh-field strength magnetic resonance imaging.
This article discusses how advances in experimental closed-loop systems hold promise for improved clinical benefit in patients with neurological disorders.
This case report describes a woman with neurocysticercosis manifesting as blurry vision, tinnitus, and multiple posterior fossa cysts requiring surgical drainage.
This case report describes a 22-year-old man who presented with an acute basilar artery occlusion.
