David K Wright, Georgia F Symons, William T O'Brien, Stuart J McDonald, Akram Zamani, Brendan Major, Zhibin Chen, Daniel Costello, Rhys D Brady, Mujun Sun, Meng Law, Terence J O'Brien, Richelle Mychasiuk, Sandy R Shultz,

Sports-related concussion (SRC) is a serious health concern. However, the temporal profile of neuropathophysiological changes after SRC and how these relate to biological sex are still poorly understood. This preliminary study investigated whether diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) was sensitive to neuropathophysiological changes following SRC; whether these changes were sex-specific; ...

Occipital ulegyria causing epilepsy and visual impairment: an easily overlooked epilepsy syndrome.

Antoinette O'Connor, Daniel J Costello,

Ulegyria refers to scarring of the cerebral cortex usually arising from perinatal ischaemia.
