Student Researchers' Society Topics

The aim of the study is to summarize the clinical data of patients with paraneoplastic syndrome diagnosed and treated at the Neurology Clinic. This group of diseases includes both central nervous system (e.g. cerebellar degeneration, limbic encephalitis) and peripheral nervous system (e.g. neuropathy, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, myositis) syndromes. During the work, we collect the clinical data, review the investigation strategy, evaluate possible (immune) diagnostic tests.

The purpose of the study to classify and buid up a register for the mitochondrial patients diagnosed in the Neurology clinic. Furthemor, morphological analysis of the muscle biosy specimens.

During the study we analyze the clinical, genetic and muscle biopsy findings of patients with myotonic dystrophy.

Examination of various behavioural disorders in Parkinson's disease

The purpose of the study to gain experience in the clinical examinations of myopathies, especially in functional tests (eg. quantitative muscle force tests, 6 minute-walking test, etc.) and in the evaluation of muscle biopsy. To buid up a registry of myopathic patients in the Neurology Clinic.

Aims: 1. Investigation of MMN patients, 2. Reading their medical records, 3. Making a patient's database (e.g., age, gender, disease onset, disease duration, impaired nerve at onset, progression of nerve involvents, effectiveness of IVIg), 4. Overview of MMN literature, 5. Writing of the thesis.

In this topic the students can learn and analyse the results of the technique of deep brain stimulation, intraoperative electophysiology  and patient programming. Both clinical research or literature review are available.

In this topic the students can learn about the pharmacological treatment of Parkinson’s disease and the examination of patients. Both clinical research or literature review are available.

We would like to perform morphological analysis (volumentry) of tight and calf muscles of patients suffering from myotonic dystrophy and follow up the progression.
