  Brain lesions: A brain lesion is an abnormality seen on a brain-imaging test, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT). On CT or MRI scans, brain lesions appear as dark or light spots that don't look like normal brain tissue.   To investigate brain functional connectivity (FC) alterations in patients with clinically isolated syndromes (CIS) presenting without conventional brain MRI lesions, and to identify the FC differences between the CIS patients who converted to multiple sclerosis (MS) and those not converted during a 5-year follow-up. We recruited 20 CIS patients without conventional brain lesions, 28 patients Cited by: 7. Brain Lesions. Brain lesions may be performed experimentally, in animal studies, or may be investigated in humans who have suffered from unfortunate injury to certain parts of the brain, which may result from strokes, tumors, trauma, or neurodegenerative diseases.

Full text of "Brain lesions and functional results yet it is remarkable how many examples of the most extensive lesions of the brain can be found with no such results. In a mon- ograph published by me a short time ago I endeavored to show that localization of functional power resided only in the basal ganglia, and that the masses of cer.

  This updated second edition provides the state of the art perspective of the theory, practice and application of modern non-invasive imaging methods employed in exploring the structural and functional architecture of the normal and diseased human brain. Like the successful first edition, it is written by members of the Functional Imaging Laboratory - the Wellcome Trust funded London lab that. The loss of general brain‐wide functional integration that follows (i.e., increased functional segregation) may contribute to the amnesia observed in our patients, though it is noteworthy that lesions within the DMN, such as the hippocampus, were not associated with extensive cognitive impairment when pooled across patients with a diverse Cited by:   The locations of brain lesions were classified into the frontal, parietotemporal, subcortical, medulla, pons, and cerebellum. The degree of cognitive impairment and the severity of stroke were assessed by the Mini Mental Status Examination (MMSE) and the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), by:   Brain AVM (arteriovenous malformation) — an abnormal formation of brain blood vessels. Brain tumor (both cancerous and noncancerous) Encephalitis (brain inflammation) Multiple sclerosis. Traumatic brain injury. While brain trauma of any sort may result in a concussion as well as a brain lesion, concussions and brain lesions are not the same.

  The findings indicate that measures of executive function in children are sensitive to the severity of the injury and to the volume of prefrontal lesions. Preliminary results indicate no support for initial sparing of function or delayed onset of deficit as children with prefrontal lesions sustained at a young age approach : Orvar Eeg-Olofsson.
