Review Article Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Epilepsy in the elderly is a very debated case because much depends on the causes and associated pathologies. In particular, in the presence of comorbidity it is often difficult to find an effective and safe antiepileptic therapy that does not interfere with other drugs and therefore must be personalized. New-onset epilepsy in the elderly is caused by two types of cerebral lesions.

Abstract: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) are two major in vivo non invasive methodologies more and more applied in research. The first more than the second is largely used also in clinical domain. Both techniques are more or less related to the effectiveness of oxygen levels and/or functionality in blood.

Abstract: It has recently been reported that a raised level of folate and/or vitamin B12 in the blood of a newly parturient woman forecasts a marked increase in the possibility that the newborn infant will later develop autisma. The text that follows refers to the cases of two boys, each of which had suffered repeated episodes of acute febrile cervical lymphadenopathy.

Abstract: The influence of nutrition on cognitive abilities is undisputed in academic literature. Numerous studies have shown that the effects of polyunsaturated fats and other foods, such as milk, meat or oils are in fact measurable.

Abstract: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) provides a non-invasive, non-ionizing means to monitor total haemoglobin concentration and oxygen saturation in the living tissue allowing monitoring oxygen sufficiency. Main applications of NIRS are in the study of the transport of the oxygen to the muscles, the cellular metabolism and the cerebral haemodynamics. Fewer NIRS studies have been performed at the Central Nervous System (CNS), mainly to monitor oxygen sufficiency, brain functions and diseases.

Abstract: Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis (CX) is an exceedingly rare autosomal recessive lipid storage disorder due to homozygous mutation of the mitochondrial enzyme sterol 27-hydroxylase.
Abstract: Caregiver syndrome is caused by continuous care without interrupting a chronic patient. The physical, emotional and economic difficulties experienced by caregivers, the losses in the functioning of the patient, and the absence of the caregiver's free time, negatively affect the quality life of caregivers.

Abstract: In the last century technological developments contribute positively to the living conditions, quality improvement in health care, higher levels of education, advances in public health and preventive medicine are the positive society of the effects of, has led to the extension of the average life expectancy.
Abstract: The notion of stimulus-secretion initially resulted from the experiments performed by Douglas and Rubin in the sixties. Using adrenal chromaffin cells, Baker and Knight revealed in seventies that a rise in the cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]c), is an elementary requirement to trigger transmitter release.
