The molecular basis of complex neuropsychiatric disorders most likely involves many genes. In recent years, specific genetic variations influencing risk for schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorders have been reported. We have used custom DNA microarrays and qPCR to investigate the expression of putative schizophrenia susceptibility genes and(More)
This paper examines the role of retracted tongue root ([RTR]) harmony in Northeast Asian areal and genetic relationships. Recent research has suggested that at least three of the families grouped together as Altaic by Poppe (1960)-Korean, Mongolic, and Tungusic (KMT)-should be reconstructed with [RTRI vowel harmony. ln this paper we reinforce this(More)
There is by now a well-established consensus that vowel harmony in Tungusic is based on a feature referencing tongue root (TR) position (Li 1996, Zhang 1996). The backdrop for this consensus is the increasingly accepted view that TR harmony is characteristic of the language families commonly grouped together as for Altaic broadly. In spite of this(More)
Facial paralysis can result in serious ocular consequences. All patients with orbicularis oculi weakness in the setting of facial nerve injury should undergo a thorough ophthalmologic evaluation. The main goal of management in these patients is to protect the ocular surface and preserve visual function. Patients with expected recovery of facial nerve(More)

Date_____________ The final copy of this thesis has been examined by the signatories, and we find that both the content and the form meet acceptable presentation standards of scholarly work in the above mentioned discipline. At the cusp of the 21 st century, the exchange of digital music on the Internet brings forth interesting discussions. Reviewing data(More)
Here we describe the development of a novel specific, rapid ELISA system, which is performed on modified microplates where polyvinylidine fluoride (PVDF) forms the base of each well. The use of microplates with PVDF membranes as the solid phase allows for a greater binding capacity of protein in comparison to the solid phases of traditional ELISAs. The(More)
