Weight loss and emaciation were described together with abdominal pain and vomiting. Vomiting was a late symptom in our case,(More)
In this paper we describe the challenges of creating a game that can be played by large groups on a single display. Our solutions include the use of smart phones as game controllers using the standard IRC protocol, voting-based turn interaction, and automatically cus-tomized avatars allowing hundreds of players to appear on the display simultaneously.

Neural crest mesenchyme participates in the formation of craniofacial structures that are malformed in the fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). We studied the effects of continuous ethanol treatment (0.05%, 0.10%, 0.15%, 0.20%) on developing neural crest cells in vitro. These cells migrate, but many fail to develop their usual arborized dendrites. Exposure of well(More)
The calcium ion has been implicated in the mediation of the morphogenetic movements that occur during neural tube formation. The present study identifies high levels of calcium in the neuroepithelium of the neural plate, folds, and tube. These levels are substantially higher than those discerned elsewhere in the embryo. The calcium is localized in(More)
