The results are consistent with earlier reports and describe in greater detail the regional pattern of age‐related differences in gray and white matter in normally developing children and adolescents.

A dissociation between language and cognitive functions in Williams syndrome adolescents, in contrast to age- and IQ-matched Down syndrome adolescents is reported, indicating an unusual fractionation of higher cortical functioning, with marked cognitive deficits, but selective sparing of syntax.

Results suggest that increases in cerebrospinal fluid within the sulci of these cortical regions accompany grey matter decreases, and smaller reductions in volume are observed in subcortical grey matter nuclei.
Early lexical development in children with focal brain injury
From first words to grammar in children with focal brain injury
The effects of focal brain injury were investigated in the first stages of language development, during the passage from first words to grammar. Parent report, free‐speech data, or both are reported…
Integrated imaging approach with MEG and DTI to detect mild traumatic brain injury in military and civilian patients.
The results show that the integrated approach with MEG and DTI is more sensitive than conventional CT and MRI in detecting subtle neuronal injury in mild TBI, and findings from the integrated imaging approach are consistent with post-concussive symptoms.

Information is provided to support the notion of functional plasticity in the developing brain; yields much-needed clarification in the literature of prognosis in children with early ischaemic perinatal stroke; provides evidence that seizures limit plasticity during development; and avoids many of the confounds in prior studies.
Intonation and Emotion in Autistic Spectrum Disorders
In spontaneous speech, autistic subjects performed more poorly on both phonetic targets and subjective ratings than ctrls, and AS subjects fell between autistics and normals; however in the repetition task, autistic Subjects actually had a larger pitch range than the other groups.

Findings suggest that developmental LI is not an isolated finding but is indicative of more widespread nervous system dysfunction and children with LI may need more comprehensive intervention programs than language therapy alone, depending on their other areas of dysfunction.
