Die elektrosensible Diagnostik in der Neurologie

Mit der Elektroencephalographie und der Elektromyographie hat die Neurophysiologie zwei wichtige Beiträge zur klinischen Routinearbeit geleistet, die aus der Funktions­ diagnostik einerseits des Gehirns, andererseits des peripheren Nervensystems nicht mehr wegzudenken sind. Es fehlte bisher aber eine vergleichbare funktionsanalytische Unter­ suchungsmethode für den Bereich der Rückenmarkspathologie.


This article presents a concise but accomplished evaluate of universal neurologic issues. The pathophysiology, presentation, prognosis, and administration of those entities is mentioned intimately in a transparent, effortless to appreciate layout. the point of interest is on sufferers offered with vertigo, disequilibrium, listening to loss, pulsatile and non-pulsatile tinnitus, facial nerve weak point, and issues of the otitis media.

Example text

The medial palpebral arteries, two in number (the superior and the inferior), arise from the ophthalmic artery below the trochlea. The supratrochlear artery, a terminal branch of the ophthalmic artery, leaves the orbit in the superomedial part together with the nerve of the same name. The dorsal artery of the nose, another terminal branch of the ophthalmic artery, emerges from the orbit between the trochlea and the medial palpebral ligament.

Gene transfer vectors have to be able to cross the BBB. The induction of immune response for some vectors must be avoided, and the production of viral vectors in large scale has to be optimized. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that none of these problems mentioned above are problems that can not be resolved. Acknowledgement We thank Prof. D. D. for critical reading of the manuscript.
