BACKGROUND: We would like to present the case of a 72-year-old woman, in whom diastematomyelia was surprisingly discovered when looking for an explanation for her neurological and urological complaints. Diastematomyelia is a rare disease in the group of 'spinal dysraphisms', mostly discovered at birth and very rare at advanced age. The clinical pattern could be seen in the general presentation of 'tethered cord' and there are 2 types of presentation with a different treatment. CASE REPORT: In our case report the two dominant complaints were pain in the right foot and sphincter problems...

#11
Ya-Yun Lee, Beth E Fisher
BACKGROUND: Compared with age-matched non-disabled adults, people with Parkinson's disease (PD) demonstrated greater context-dependent learning, a phenomenon in which an individual shows inferior motor performance when the testing environmental context is different from the original practice context. Additionally, enhanced context- dependency has been shown to be associated with an increased activation of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). AIM: This study aimed to determine whether context-dependent learning in people with PD could be reduced by decreasing DLPFC activation with low frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS)...
