To further confound matters, contrast and non contrast CT scans which are the initial radiological modalities in workup for stroke in most centers; are almost always unrevealing for thalamic
strokes and even on MRI it may be difficult to appreciate changes consistent with acute ischaemic insults to thalami without supportive clinical findings.
Unfortunately, most large-scale studies (13,24-26) reporting outcomes of patients with thalamic
PA pool their data with DA (WHO grade II) into an unhelpful and biologically meaningless "low-grade glioma" category.
In this study, we found that patients diagnosed with schizophrenia had increased AD, MD, and RD values corresponding to left and right superior longitudinal fasciculus and anterior thalamic
At nighttime between the two days, scientists introduced artificial thalamic

In studies conducted on central post-stroke pain, because central pain was first defined in thalamic

Recent studies have shown that the corticothalamic projection in the primary sensory neocortical area to the corresponding sub-nuclei of the thalamus directly results in the coordination and precision in the firing of thalamic
neurons from these sub-nuclei to the neocortex (Andolina, Jones, Wang & Sillito, 2007; Worgotter, Eyding, Macklis & Funke, 2002; Sillito, Jones, Gerstein & Wet, 1994).
