Broad-band frequency analysis was performed on the EEGs of school-age children in order to study the effects of sex, socioeconomic status (SES) and biological risk factors on EEG maturation. Absolute power and relative power in delta, theta, alpha and beta frequency bands were computed in monopolar recordings from F3, F4, C3, C4, P3, P4, O1, O2, F7, F8, T3,(More)
The age effect on coherence has been studied in control (98) and learning-disabled (LD, 54) school-aged children (from 6.0 to 16.8 years old). The EEG recordings were made at rest in 15 leads, and 105 pairwise combinations for coherence were calculated (each lead was compared with all the rest) for delta, theta, alpha, beta and total frequency bands. A(More)
It has been shown that EEG maturation can be described in terms of regression equations on age of broad band EEG frequency parameters. In the present paper six groups of children with different economic and psychosocial characteristics of three countries were studied. Regression equations on age of the EEG relative power (expressed in percentages of the(More)
We had previously observed that in groups of children with low socioeconomic and cultural level the EEG spectral parameters did not correlate with age due to the great variance in the distribution of such EEG parameters. In this paper we have made several statistical analyses in order to look for other factors that may explain the great variance observed.(More)
BACKGROUND Telomerase is an enzyme that catalyzes the addition of nucleotides on the ends of chromosomes. Rare loss of function mutations in the gene that encodes the protein component of telomerase (TERT) have been described in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Here we examine the telomere lengths and pulmonary fibrosis phenotype seen in(More)
This is the report of a hydranencephalic child with severe generalized seizures of the Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) who lacked the development of the entire cerebral hemispheres and had preserved the brain stem, cerebellum, hypothalamus and a portion of the thalamus as evidenced by radiological and/or physiological studies. Conventional polygraphic sleep(More)
Continuous all night recordings of epileptiform EEG activities from right frontal scalp and thalamic Centromedian regions and EMG activities from left deltoid muscular region were performed on a child with intractable epilepsia partialis continua, with depth stimulating-recording electrodes used for neuroaugmentive seizure control. In addition, "normal" and(More)
