Purpose of review null Behavioral therapies are proven treatments for many neurologic conditions. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has posed significant challenges for conducting behavioral research. This article aims to (1) highlight the challenges of running behavioral clinical trials during the pandemic, (2) suggest approaches to maximize generalizability of pandemic-era studies, and (3) offer strategies for successful behavioral trials beyond the pandemic. null Recent findings null Thousands o...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW We summarize recent published work concerning assessment and treatment of aphasia in bilingual and multilingual people and review current related models of treatment outcomes. As well, we discuss studies that address the recently debated topic of cognitive processes in bilingual individuals with aphasia, with a focus on the effects of bilingualism on aphasia recovery and its potential protective effects. RECENT FINDINGS Providing assessment and treatment tools that best serve m...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Aphasia is an acquired neurological language disorder after brain damages. Persons with aphasia (PWA) are more susceptible to behavioral and emotional implications due to inherent communication and/or cognitive difficulties. Currently, little is known regarding the impact of COVID-19 on PWA. RECENT FINDINGS There are now growing reports with evidence of neurological and dysexecutive syndromes subsequent to interference of brain functions in acute patients with COVID-19, leading...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is a life-saving procedure performed in refractory intracranial pressure increase and mass lesion due to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cranioplasty primarily intends to maintain cerebral protection and reconstruct aesthetic appearance. Also, cranioplasty can enable neurological rehabilitation and potentially augment neurological recovery. This article reviews recent studies on the effect of cranioplasty on neurological recovery in severe TB...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The present review discusses in-depth about neurological complications following acute venous thromboembolism (VTE). RECENT FINDINGS Intracranial hemorrhage, acute ischemic cerebrovascular events, and VTE in brain tumors are described as central nervous system (CNS) complications of PE, while peripheral neuropathy and neuropathic pain are reported as peripheral nervous system (PNS) sequelae of PE. Syncope and seizure are illustrated as atypical neurological presentations of PE....
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Color provides important information about the identity of the objects we encounter. After early processing stages in the retinal cones, thalamus, and occipital cortex, retinal signals reach the ventral temporal cortex for high-level color and object processing, which links color perception with top-down expectations and knowledge. In the language-dominant hemisphere, some of these regions communicate with the language systems; by assigning verbal labels to percepts, these circ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) represents about 15% of all strokes in the USA, but almost 50% of fatal strokes. There are many causes of ICH, but the most common are hypertension and cerebral amyloid angiopathy. This review will discuss new advances in the treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage. RECENT FINDINGS The treatment of ICH focuses on management of edema, aggressive blood pressure reduction, and correction of coagulopathy. Early initiation of supportive medical therapies...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Description of headache dates back thousands of years, and to date, tension-type headache (TTH) remains the most common form of headache. We will review the history and current understanding of the pathophysiology of TTH and discuss the recommended clinical evaluation and management for this syndrome. RECENT FINDINGS Despite being the most prevalent headache disorder, TTH pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Patients with TTH tend to have muscles that are harder, more ten...

Purpose of review null Dietary interventions may play a role in the pathophysiology of common neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke, migraines, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. This article describes the most common and impactful dietary regimens for commonly encountered neurological disorders. null Recent findings null Plant-based, low-fat, high-fiber diets, rich in antioxidants and other lifestyle interventions may reduce the burden and disability of ...

Historical and contemporary treatments of visual agnosia and neglect regard these disorders as largely unrelated. It is thought that damage to different neural processes leads directly to one or the other condition, yet apperceptive variants of agnosia and object-centered variants of neglect share remarkably similar deficits in the quality of conscious experience. Here we argue for a closer association between “apperceptive” variants of visual agnosia and “object-centered” variants of visual neg...
