The relationship of sleep-disordered breathing (SOB) to neuropsychological deficits was investigated with cross-sectional data from the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort Study, a population-based study of the natural history of SDB. A sample of 841 employed men and women ages 30 to 60 yr was studied by overnight polysomnography to assess the frequency of apneas and(More)
The California serogroup viruses are mosquito viruses that cause human infections on five continents. They are maintained and amplified in nature by a wide variety of mosquito vectors and mammalian hosts; they thrive in a remarkably wide variety of microclimates (eg, tropical, coastal temperate marshland, lowland river valleys, alpine valleys and highlands,(More)
Tremor was measured from the index finger during low force, position holding in 18 control subjects and 18 battery workers with low level exposure to mercury. All workers were asymptomatic on clinical neurological examination. No differences were found in average tremor amplitudes between the groups, but statistically significant abnormalities in tremor(More)
Teacher ratings, objective classroom and laboratory observational data, attention-concentration, and other psychological measures obtained on 36 school-age, hyperactive boys under experimental and control diet conditions yielded no support for the Feingold hypothesis. Parental ratings revealed positive behavioral changes for the experimental diet; however,(More)
Nine hyperactive male subjects, selected on the basis of showing a favorable "response" to the Feingold diet in an earlier study, were maintained on a strict elimination (Feingold) diet for 11 weeks, and were given multiple trials of placebo and challenge food materials. Parental and teacher ratings, classroom behavior observations, and neuropsychological(More)
Wechsler Aandult Intelligence Scale and Halstead neuropsychological performances were investigated in three groups of adult subjects with major motor epilepsy classified according to low, moderate, and high seizure frequency. The groups were equated on seizure duration and age at onset variables. On 7 of the 14 psychological measures employed, significant(More)
Several areas of current interest in the neuropsychology of epilepsy are briefly reviewed in this article. These include variables pertaining to seizures, seizure history, antiepileptic drugs, and methods of neuropsychological evaluation. It is apparent that epilepsy is a multifaceted area: Psychologists not only can be of great assistance to patients with(More)
Psychometric, adaptive ability, motor proficiency, and sensory discrimination measures were administered to adult seizure patients within 36 hours of blood serum determinations of diphenylhydantoin, phenobarbital, and primidone. Thirty-five subjects in whom at least one of the three drug levels fell within stated mug per milliliter toxicity ranges were(More)
