A retrospective observational study on cases of anaplastic brain tumors treated with the Di Bella Method: A rationale and effectiveness

AbstractDespite all the new developments in cancer therapy, the life expectancy of patients with malignant anaplastic brain tumors and glioblastoma multiform (GBM) remains short. Since the establishment of the Di Bella Method (DBM) in cancer therapy, DBM was able to increase the survival rate and life quality, without overt toxicity, in comparison to what is …

Big-C creativity in artists and scientists is associated with more random global but less random local fMRI functional connectivity.

Brain mechanisms underlying creativity are largely unknown and few studies have involved exceptionally creative individuals. We examined functional MRI (fMRI) connectivity in a “smart comparison group” (SCG; n = 24), and in exceptionally creative (“Big C”) visual artists (VIS; n = 21) and scientists (SCI; n = 21). Groups were matched on age, sex, and …

Decoding COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Immunometabolism in Central Nervous System: human brain normal glial and glioma cells by Raman imaging

The paper presents the effect of COVID-19 mRNA (Pfizer/BioNT) vaccine on in vitro glial cells of the brain studied by means of Raman spectroscopy and imaging.. The results obtained for human brain normal and tumor glial cells of astrocytes, astrocytoma, glioblastoma incubated with the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine Pfizer/BioNT vaccine show alterations in the reduction-oxidation pathways …

Cerebral venous thrombosis after vaccination against COVID-19 in the UK: a multicentre cohort study

BackgroundA new syndrome of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) has emerged as a rare side-effect of vaccination against COVID-19. Cerebral venous thrombosis is the most common manifestation of this syndrome but, to our knowledge, has not previously been described in detail. We aimed to document the features of post-vaccination cerebral venous thrombosis with and without …

Saccade-related neural communication in the human medial temporal lobe is modulated by the social relevance of stimuli

Humans predominantly explore their environment by moving their eyes. To optimally communicate and process visual information, neural activity needs to be coordinated with the execution of eye movements. We investigated the coordination between visual exploration and interareal neural communication by analyzing local field potentials and single neuron activity in patients with epilepsy. We demonstrated that …
