AIMS The association of trauma and physical activity with ALS is controversial. We explored the relation in a pilot case-control study. MATERIAL AND METHODS ALS patients were selected from a university muscle disease clinic and paired with two matched controls: one from the clinic, but having different diseases, and one from the community. RESULTS We(More)
Inconsistent differences in the corpus callosum (CC) structure between dyslexic readers (DRs) and typical readers (TRs) have been reported. We examine differences in CC splenium microstructure and the association of splenium microstructure with reading-related skills. Nine DRs and 18 TRs completed a reading skills battery and diffusion tensor imaging. DRs(More)
It is unknown whether the abnormalities in brain structure and function observed in dyslexic readers are congenital or arise later in development. Analyzing the 2 components of gray matter volume separately may help in differentiating these possibilities. Gray matter volume is the product of cortical surface area, determined during prenatal brain(More)
To investigate the significance of electroencephalogram (EEG) discharges and their treatment, we retrospectively reviewed the charts of 22 children with atypical cognitive development that did not respond to standard educational therapy and demonstrated discharges on EEG. Most children demonstrated no obvious symptoms of seizures, and developmental(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association of a number of occupational and industrial exposures with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). DESIGN A case-control study of ALS cases matched by age and sex to 2 controls each: 1 from a neurologic clinic and 1 from a local community. Exposures were ascertained by questionnaire, and patients were requested before the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE In preparation for analytic study we undertook to describe areas of relative excess and deficit of Parkinson's Disease (PD) in Nebraska and tested two methodologic tools for inexpensive assessment of descriptive epidemiology of PD. METHODS In lieu of large-scale population screening and diagnosis, we obtained sales information of(More)
In this study, we compared the brain activation profiles obtained from resting state Electroencephalographic (EEG) and Magnetoencephalographic (MEG) activity in six mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) patients and five orthopedic controls, using power spectral density (PSD) analysis. We first estimated intracranial dipolar EEG/MEG sources on a dense grid on(More)
This study investigates the dissolution, sorption, leachability, and plant uptake of tungsten and alloying metals from canister round munitions in the presence of model, well characterized soils. The source of tungsten was canister round munitions, composed mainly of tungsten (95%) with iron and nickel making up the remaining fraction. Three soils were(More)
