Departamento de Neurologia - FM/MNE

O Departamento de Neurologia da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP) teve origem na Cadeira de Clínica Psiquiátrica e Moléstias Nervosas da Faculdade de Medicina de São Paulo, criada em 1918. Atualmente, o Departamento abrange as áreas de neurocirurgia, neurologia clínica, neurologia experimental e neurologia infantil. Mantém foco no ensino de estudantes de graduação em Medicina, Fisioterapia, Terapia Ocupacional e Fonoaudiologia, Pós-Graduação lato sensu (Residência Médica e Estágios de Complementação Especializada) e stricto sensu na área de concentração Neurologia.

    FRONTIERS IN NEUROLOGY, v.12, article ID 717239, 7p, 2021

    Introduction: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a treatment option for refractory dystonia's motor symptoms, while its non-motor symptoms (NMS) have been less systematically assessed. We aimed to describe the effects of DBS on NMS in refractory generalized inherited/idiopathic dystonia prospectivel...

  4. The nerve to the levator scapulae muscle as donor in brachial plexus surgery: an anatomical study and case series

    JOURNAL OF NEUROSURGERY, v.135, n.4, p.1223-1230, 2021

    OBJECTIVE Nerve transfers are commonly used in treating complete injuries of the brachial plexus, but donor nerves are limited and preferentially directed toward the recovery of elbow flexion and shoulder abduction. The aims of this study were to characterize the anatomical parameters for identif...

    WORLD NEUROSURGERY, v.155, p.E19-E33, 2021

    BACKGROUND: Intermittent explosive disorder (IED) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by recurrent outbursts of aggressive behavior. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the posteromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus (pHyp) is an alternative therapy for extreme cases and shows promising results. In...

  8. The chromatin remodeler complex ATRX-DAXX-H3.3 and telomere length in meningiomas

    CLINICAL NEUROLOGY AND NEUROSURGERY, v.210, article ID 106962, 7p, 2021

    ATRX-DAXX-H3.3 chromatin remodeler complex is a well known epigenetic factor responsible for the heterochromatin maintenance and control. ATRX is an important nucleosome controller, especially in tandem repeat regions, and DAXX is a multi-function protein with particular role in histone H3.3 depo...

  9. Superficial-Temporal-Artery-To-Middle-Cerebral-Artery Bypass in Cerebrovascular Occlusive Disease and Hemodynamic-Related Ischemia: Illustrative Case and Literature Review


    Stroke is the third most common cause of death worldwide. About 10% to 15% of strokes related to the territory of the carotid artery are associated with its complete occlusion. There is an important subgroup of patients with cerebrovascular occlusive diseases who might benefit from an external-ca...
