The European Academy of Neurology COVID-19 registry (ENERGY): an international instrument for surveillance of neurological complications in patients with COVID-19.

Ettore Beghi, Raimund Helbok, Michael Crean, Sherry Hsiang-Yi Chou, Molly McNett, Elena Moro, Claudio Bassetti, ,

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global public health issue. Neurological complications have been reported in up to one-third of affected cases, but their distribution varies significantly in terms of prevalence, incidence and phenotypical characteristics. Variability can be mostly explained by the differing sources of cases (hospital vs. community-based), the accuracy ... Read more >>

The validity of the Montreal cognitive assessment (MoCA) for the screening of vascular cognitive impairment after ischemic stroke.

Jure Potocnik, Klavdija Ovcar Stante, Martin Rakusa,

Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) is a common feature of vascular brain lesions. The heterogeneity of clinical presentation after a stroke makes it challenging to find. However, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Scale (MoCA) may be suitable for such purpose. Aim of the present study was to validate the Slovenian version of ... Read more >>

Separating the Idea from the Action: A sLORETA Study.

Martin Rakusa, Pierpaolo Busan, Piero Paolo Battaglini, Janez Zidar,

Simple imaginary movements activate similar cortical and subcortical areas to actual movements, chiefly in the sensory-motor network. However, only a few studies also examined the imagery of more skilful movements such as reaching. Ten volunteers performed reaching movements or imagined the same movements. EEG was simultaneously recorded and analysed with ... Read more >>

Assessment of the haptic robot as a new tool for the study of the neural control of reaching.

Martin Rakusa, Ales Hribar, Blaz Koritnik, Marko Munih, Piero Paolo Battaglni, Ales Belic, Janez Zidar,

Current experimental methods for the study of reaching in the MRI environment do not exactly mimic actual reaching, due to constrains in movement which are imposed by the MRI machine itself. We tested a haptic robot (HR) as such a tool. Positive results would also be promising for combined use ... Read more >>
