Associations of Occipital Lobe with chemical compounds

  • In the occipital lobe, NAA and ADP are 11.9 +/- 1.9mM and 32 +/- 12microM, respectively [10].
  • The animals were delivered at term (E165) and sacrificed at 2 or 12 months of age, and their brains frozen and the occipital lobes cut at 20 microns in the coronal plane [28].
  • Conversely, L-dopa-induced blood flow increases were observed in the right occipital lobe during the memory task relative to the control task [29].
  • Four patients with ischemic damage to all or part of the occipital lobe had decreased glucose metabolism in the affected region [30].
  • Using 1H spectroscopy, we measured occipital lobe GABA levels serially in 18 patients enrolled in an ongoing open label trial of vigabatrin [31].

Gene context of Occipital Lobe

  • RESULTS: All patients with MELAS showed focal hypoperfusion in the parietal and/or occipital lobes [32].
  • In this study, we examined content and localization of beta-secretase-cleaved APP (beta-sAPP) in brain tissue sections from the frontal, temporal and occipital lobe [33].
  • Occipital lobe seizures related to clinically asymptomatic celiac disease in adulthood [34].
  • Occipital lobe seizures may be characteristic of the epilepsy related to CD, and epileptic patients with these seizures of unknown etiology should be carefully investigated for malabsorption [34].
  • PGI and phosphofructokinase (PFK) activities were determined in frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital lobe and cerebellum of 9 controls, 9 patients with DS and 9 patients with AD [26].
