Subspecialty training in Sleep Medicine for Child Neurology residents
ICNA
ICNA
Updated March 17, 2020
In a paper published in Neurology, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia provide an overview of pediatric sleep medicine for the child neurology trainee seeking subspecialty fellowship opportunities.The authors emphasize the need for more child neurology trainees to enter a sleep medicine fellowship in an effort to improve the outcomes of children with neurologic disorders that may be linked to sleep disruption.
Several Lower Extremity MR Biomarkers Predict Future Ambulatory Function in Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
ICNA
ICNA
Updated March 17, 2020
In a recently published article in Neurology, Krista Vandenborne and colleagues suggest that several magnetic resonance (MR) biomarkers from the lower extremities, including biomarkers from the proximal muscles, may be predictive of future ambulatory function in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. These predictive biomarkers include the vastus lateralis fat fraction, soleus fat fraction, vastus lateralis T2 MR imaging (MRI), and biceps femoris long head T2 MRI.

ICNA
Updated February 08, 2020
 Johnen A and colleagues from University of Münster, Germany in a recently published study in the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology suggests that early initiation of highly effective escalation therapies in pediatric patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with reduced cognitive impairment (CI) and may prevent cognitive decline in these patients. They did a cohort study of 19 patients...

 In a fascinating new study published in Cell Reports investigators from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California quantifying intrinsic functional connectivity in six individuals who underwent hemispherectomy, in childhood. Studies of temporal correlations of blood-oxygenation-level-dependent signal (BOLD) as indirect measures of intrinsic functional connectivity with resting-state fMRI have suggested that a relatively small set of resting-state functional brain networks underlie cognition and behaviour. It has been known that despite profoundly atypical anatomy some individuals have been able to retain relatively intact cognitive abilities. However it has not been explained whether this compensation is due to a reorganisation of...
