OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term neurodevelopment of children exposed in utero to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that developed a neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). STUDY DESIGN Neurodevelopmental evaluation was performed at the age of 2 to 6 years. Children who developed NAS were compared with those who did not using univariate and(More)
The prevalence rates of pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) have risen in the West over the last 10 years. There is argument over the etiology of this change in rates. Social and cultural processes including migration have been hypothesized. Israel, as a country of ongoing immigration with a national registry of children diagnosed with PDD, offers an(More)
Some motor tasks, if learned together, interfere with each other's consolidation and subsequent retention, whereas other tasks do not. Interfering tasks are said to employ the same internal model whereas noninterfering tasks use different models. The division of function among internal models, as well as their possible neural substrates, are not well(More)
It is widely accepted that learning first involves generating new memories and then consolidating them into long-term memory. Thus learning is generally viewed as a single continuous process with two sequential stages; acquisition and consolidation. Here, we tested an alternative hypothesis proposing that acquisition and consolidation take place, at least(More)
Neurons in the motor areas of cortex play a key role in associating sensory instructions with movements. However, their ability to acquire and maintain representations of novel stimulus features, especially when these features are behaviorally relevant, remains unknown. We investigated neuronal changes in these areas during and after associative learning,(More)
This study examines the attitudes of 176 Israel Defense Forces officers toward combat stress reaction (CSR) in four areas: (1) the degree of personal responsibility the officer accepts for the treatment of the CSR casualty; (2) the type of treatment the officer views as most effective for CSR; (3) the officer's willingness to accept the CSR casualty's(More)
Correct localization of epileptic foci can improve surgical outcome in patients with drug-resistant seizures. Our aim was to demonstrate that systemically injected nanoparticles identify activated immune cells, which have been reported to accumulate in epileptogenic brain tissue. Fluorescent and magnetite-labeled nanoparticles were injected intravenously to(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association between hyperglycemia and electrical brain activity in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). METHODS Nine youths with T1DM were monitored simultaneously and continuously by EEG and continuous glucose monitor system, for 40 h. EEG powers of 0.5-80 Hz frequency bands in all the different brain regions were analyzed according(More)
Three cases are described in which fetomaternal hemorrhage caused hypovolemic shock at birth. The etiology was confirmed by a postpartum maternal smear which showed approximately 15% of fetal red cells in the maternal circulation. All infants had severe anemia with hematocrit values of from 11 to 15%. Initial resuscitative measures included cardiac massage(More)
