Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors report that bifemerane hydrochloride treatment improved emotional incontinence in patient with cerebral infarction. Before and after bifemerane hydrochloride treatment, 99mTc-HM PAO single photon emission CT (SPECT) was performed. After treatment, regional cerebral blood flows (CBF) in frontal lobe area increased selectively. These findings suggest that emotional incontinence and decreased CBF of the frontal lobe area were closely associated in this case.
