Can MS as a cognitive disorder influence patients' dreams?

ijnl.tums.ac.ir/index.php/ijnl/article/view/294/336

The link is to the full pdf article of a letter to the editor of the Iranian Journal of Neurology. "Can multiple sclerosis as a cognitive disorder influence patients' dreams?" Conclusion seems to be that dreaming is a cognitive function and since MS affects cognitive functions, it will also affect dreaming, and further studies should include dreaming as a sign of improvement or progression. It seems relevant to CCSVI because of the reports of ...

Prozac for Hypoperfusion?

I was watching the first part of Dr. Hubbard's video on his theory about what causes MS. I'm only part way through it, but I had to push the stop button when he started talking about how ogliodendricytes apparently die first, then the white blood cells come in to clean up the mess. If I understand him correctly he seems to be saying that hypoperfusion (which I think means not enough oxygenated blood to the ...

Venous endothelial injury in CNS diseases

A new review from the endothelial/neurological departments at LSU (Alexander and Minagar have been looking at vascular connection to MS for almost a decade.)
Full paper online, for free.

Here, we present a comprehensive review of the pathophysiology of MS, ADEM, pseudotumor cerebri, and optic neuritis, with an emphasis on the roles of venous vascular system programming and dysfunction in their pathogenesis. We consider the fundamental differences between arterial and venous endothelium, their dissimilar responses ...
