Observations are presented on a family with muscular weakness and wasting with an onset in childhood, predominantly affecting the proximal muscles in the upper limbs and the distal muscles in the lower. This was accompanied by contractures of the elbows and by pes cavus. Pseudohypertrophy was absent. Progression was slow, but an associated cardiomyopathy(More)
Sensory and ganglion cells in the tentacle epidermis of the sea anemone Aiptasia pallida were traced in serial transmission electron micrographs to their synaptic contacts on other cells. Sensory cell synapses were found on spirocytes, muscle cells, and ganglion cells. Ganglion cells, in turn, synapsed on sensory cells, spirocytes, muscle cells, and other(More)
The present study examined the effects of maturation on base-soluble protein, DNA content, and intracellular water volume in ovine cerebral arteries to evaluate these variables as references for normalization of levels of cellular constituents in studies of vascular maturation. With maturation, base-soluble protein per unit wet weight (measured by using the(More)
A 66-year-old man was investigated for increasing forgetfulness and frequent falls. Following appropriate investigations, the cause was presumed to be senile dementia of the Alzheimer type. He was reviewed one year later and found to have impaired vertical gaze and a hoarse voice. Progressive dementia, nuchal rigidity, anarthria, and sphincteric(More)
