Acute Neuronal Injury: The Role of Excitotoxic Programmed Cell Death Mechanisms

Denson G. Fujikawa 2+ within the early Eighties it used to be famous that over the top Ca inflow, most likely via 2+ 2+ voltage-gated Ca channels, with a resultant elevate in intracellular Ca, used to be linked to neuronal dying from cerebral ischemia, hypoglycemia, and standing epilepticus (Siejo 1981). Calcium activation of phospholipases, with arachidonic acid accumulation and its oxidation, producing unfastened radicals, was once regarded as a possible mechanism in which neuronal harm happens.

Central lesions of the eighth nerve rarely show loudness recruitment, but exhibit auditory fatigue in that the intensity of sound has to be increased progressively to maintain a constant noise level. Vertigo due to vestibular damage is also often accompanied by nystagmus, a to-and-fro movement of the eyes due to interrupted visual fixation. Different patterns of nystagmus will be described later. Suffice to say here that peripheral vestibular lesions causing vertigo are usually accompanied by horizontal jerk nystagmus in one direction that gets worse with loss of fixation (as in the dark), while central lesions produce nystagmus that changes direction depending upon the patient’s gaze, and which is often rotatory and vertical as well as horizontal.

This is usually most striking when lying down at night, or when moving the head suddenly. Such benign paroxysmal positional vertigo may be due to damage arising from otoconia being displaced from the utricle and ending in the posterior semicircular canal. Positional testing will establish the diagnosis. Positional vertigo may follow trauma to the head or infections but often is of undetermined origin. It may also arise from central causes as a brainstem disturbance. Persistent vertigo Chronic persistent vertigo is uncommon, due to the rapid compensation that occurs with vestibular deficits.

Again there may be acute severe pain with paraesthesiae and weakness in the arm in the distribution of the affected nerve root. The neck is often ‘fixed’ and painful to move, and coughing or sneezing may provoke a surge of pain referred down the arm. When lateral flexion or rotation of the neck aggravates the pain on the same side (ipsilateral), this also points to nerve root irritation.
