Chakravarthy Ambar
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2000,
Abstract: Modified clinical method for eliciting Tine′s sign in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) has been described. This modified method has been found to be more sensitive in eliciting a positive response (93.2%) than the standard technique (22.7%) in established cases of CTS. This modified method may serve as a useful screening procedure.

Taare Zameen Par and dyslexic savants
Chakravarty Ambar
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2009,
Abstract: The film Taare Zameen Par (Stars upon the Ground) portrays the tormented life at school and at home of a child with dyslexia and his eventual success after his artistic talents are discovered by his art teacher at the boarding school. The film hints at a curious neurocognitive phenomenon of creativity in the midst of language disability, as exemplified in the lives of people like Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein, both of whom demonstrated extraordinary creativity even though they were probably affected with developmental learning disorders. It has been hypothesized that a developmental delay in the dominant hemisphere most likely ′disinhibits′ the nondominant parietal lobe, unmasking talents-artistic or otherwise-in some such individuals. It has been suggested that, in remedial training, children with learning disorders be encouraged to develop such hidden talents to full capacity, rather than be subjected to the usual overemphasis on the correction of the disturbed coded symbol operations.

Glimpses Of the Life and Legacy Of Alzheimer (1864-1915)
Chakravarty Ambar
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2003,
Abstract: The borderland between neurology and psychiatry is fast disappearing - thanks to the description of neurotransmitter alterations in various psychiatric disorders and the development of rational pharmacotherapy based on such alterations. The attempt to find out a neural basis of psychiatric disorders started in Europe about one hundred years back by a group of neuropsychiatrists with extensive training in histology and psychiatry. Two names stand out in prominence - those of Emil Kraeplin and his close associated Alois Alzheimer (Figs. 1&2). Kraeplin (1856-1926) was a German psychiatrist who worked as a professor at Dorpat, Heidelberg and later at Munich. His major contributions were in the classification of mental symptoms and diseases, the description of schizophrenia and the provision of an academic milieu wherein colleagues such as Nissl, Jakob, Barany and Spatz flourished. His association with Alzheimer began at Munich and it is from his memoirs (translated in English in 1987) (1) and other writings (2) that much can be known about psychiatric practice in contemporary Europe as well as about Alzheimer as a person. It was Kraeplin who credited Alzheimer by ascribing the eponym Alzheimer′s disease to the condition he described. Emil Kraeplin, indeed was the mentor of Alois Alzheimer.
