Regional cortical thickness was evaluated using CIVET processing of 3D T1-weighted images (i) to compare the variation in cortical thickness between 33 participants with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) aged 6-30 years (mean age 12.3 years) versus 33 age/sex/hand-matched controls, and (ii) to examine developmental changes in cortical thickness with(More)
BACKGROUND Previous research indicates that children with FASD have both memory and learning deficits. However, there is no consensus about whether the deficits identified from a pattern of impairment, and whether this pattern is consistent with the current theories regarding the organization of memory. Thus, the goal of this study was to further explore(More)
The purified RNA polymerase complex of vesicular stomatitis virus required added thiols for maximal activity, whereas polymerase activity from whole disrupted virions did not. Maximal activity of the purified polymerase complex required greater than or equal to 1 mM added dithiothreitol. The polymerase was inactivated by N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) at 0 degree(More)
The relationship between NS protein phosphorylation and RNA polymerase activities was determined in nucleocapsids purified from vesicular stomatitis virus grown in BHK cells. Phosphate incorporation into endogenous NS protein under transcription conditions reached a maximum value of 0.06 mol/mol of NS within 20 to 30 min, while RNA synthesis remained linear(More)
Compartment syndrome results from increased pressure in the closed compartments of the lower or upper extremities. Although it is not a common occurrence, it should be considered a possible complication whenever a patient experiences acute arterial occlusion or revascularization. If left untreated, compartment syndrome can lead to the loss of neuromuscular(More)
BackgroundChildren and adolescents with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) exhibit a range of physical, cognitive, behavioral, and/or learning deficits, as wells as poor executive functioning (EF). Children and adolescents with FASD often show greater impairments on complex neuropsychological tasks. However, little is known about age-related(More)
