Emotional and behavioral changes (e.g., irritability and anger or alternatively passivity and inertia) are common after traumatic brain injury (TBI). These changes have been conceptualized as reflecting a loss of regulation, specifically control (loss of inhibition) and/or drive (self-initiation). However, no empirical studies have examined the relationship(More)
Anomalously high precipitation and river discharge during the spring of 2005 caused considerable freshening and depletion of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) in surface waters along the coastal Gulf of Maine. Surface pCO2 and total alkalinity (TA) were monitored by repeated underway sampling of a crossshelf transect in the western Gulf of Maine (GOM) during(More)
PURPOSE To describe restenosis and clinical outcomes with drug-eluting stents (DESs) and compare them to those of bare metal stents (BMSs) in the treatment of symptomatic atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS) in the same patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS A retrospective study was performed of all patients with RAS treated with a DES (Taxus Express 2(More)
Deficits in emotion perception are prevalent in people with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and are an important target for remediation. Preliminary work has indicated that emotion perception can improve with treatment but there is a dearth of studies examining the efficacy of specific techniques. In this study we examined two remediation strategies:(More)
Aneurysmal volume expansion after endovascular treatment is caused by intra-aneurysmal thrombosis in the early postembolization period. Although postembolization mass effect on cranial nerves and other adjacent structures has been previously reported, we are unaware of reports involving the anterior visual pathway. A 66-year-old woman with a 2-week history(More)
Four surveys of the adjacent Cocheco, Bellamy, and Oyster estuaries reveal spatial heterogeneity with respect both to river-born carbon dioxide (CO2) fluxes and CO2 exchange with the atmosphere (−17 to 51 mmol mday), a finding partially explained by CO2 inputs from contributing watersheds. Nonuniform nutrient and organic carbon loading from upstream rivers(More)
This paper reviews a case of metastatic 1p/19q codeleted oligodendrioglioma causing diffuse osteosclerosis and pain. Primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors rarely metastasize outside the CNS, and metastatic oligodendroglioma is rarer still. The patient in this study had relief of pain after being treated with temozolomide. We discuss this rare(More)
By challenging and engaging students in interdisciplinary projects, we provide a learning platform to enhance creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, while promoting an innovation-oriented culture in academia. In this paper, we summarize interdisciplinary and undergraduate research projects in music and animation that integrate(More)
A 23-year-old gentleman presented to the emergency department with new onset neurological dysfunction and painful oral and genital ulcers. Biopsies of the lesions noted non-specific inflammatory changes. MRI of the brain revealed a large mass-like lesion involving the pons, medulla, midbrain and surrounding cerebral tissue with T2 signal enhancement that(More)
