  • COVID-19 Vaccine Priority for People With Neurologic and Rare Diseases

    As vaccination programmes against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are expanded, substantial variation in the prioritisation of different groups is apparent both between countries but also interprovincially within Canada. In this editorial, we bring attention to the need to prioritize individuals with neurologic and rare disorders for vaccination.

  • Ceramide Dynamics and Prognostic Value in Acute and Subacute Ischemic Stroke: Preliminary Findings in a Clinical Cohort

    Ceramides are implicated in sphingolipid signaling. Elevated ceramide levels have been associated with increased cardiovascular risk, but information on their role in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is limited.

  • A Pilot Clinical Trial of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Mild Cognitive Impairment

    Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is defined as a progressive memory dysfunction. There are controversies with regards to whether repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) could improve the condition. In a randomized, self-control, crossover clinical trial, effect of rTMS on cognitive performance in patients with MCI was assessed.

  • The Neurologic Manifestations of Coronavirus Disease 2019

    The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an ongoing global pandemic that has so far affected 216 countries and more than 5 million individuals worldwide. The infection is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). While pulmonary manifestations are the most common, neurological features are increasingly being recognized...

  • Biomechanical Motion Analysis of Cervical and Thoracolumbar Spine During Ambulance Transport: A Healthy Volunteer Study

    Recent evidence suggests that long spine board (LSB) may do little to manage spinal motion, and pose increased risk. This project sought to measure cervical and thoracolumbar motion during ambulance transport.







Psychological Implications of Mandatory Testing for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 During the Global COVID-19 Pandemic
This article aims to discuss the psychological and ethical impacts of forcing the patients to be tested for the COVID-19. The authors’ opinion is that testing for SARS-CoV-2 should be mandatory during the pandemic to properly guide isolation and fairly distribute limited PPE and hospital space, thereby maximizing public health.
