nepuinthesky Posted June 20, 2012 Report Share Posted June 20, 2012 i read this article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12664374 and these passage made me think of this as a possible cause Results from neuro-ophthalmic and neurological examinations were normal for the first two patients. The third patient presented abnormal visual fields with preserved visual acuity; electroencephalography was abnormal, suggesting an underlying toxic encephalopathy dont know if this is related in some way but wouldnt this explain that people without takin drugs are able to develop these symptoms? have a look at the wiki article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxic_encephalopathy Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) analyses have also demonstrated increased rates of dopamine synthesis in the putamen, reduced anterior and total corpus callosum volume, demyelination in the parietal white matter, basal ganglia, and thalamus, as well as atypical activation of frontal areas of the brain due to neural compensation. A thorough and standard diagnostic process is paramount with toxic encephalopathy, including a careful occupational history, medical history, and standardized imaging/neurobehavioral testing.  what do you think about this?
