The primary purpose of this article is to determine whether sleep deprivation (SD) of 24 h or longer has been demonstrated to be an effective procedure for eliciting epileptiform and/or seizure patterns in the EEG in epilepsy patients as compared with those of nonepileptics. The relevant literature is reviewed, first chronologically and then critically.(More)
Glycogen deposition in vascular smooth muscle has been demonstrated previously in alpha-glucosidase deficiency but has not been clinically significant. Three sons of healthy, nonconsanguineous parents developed progressive proximal muscular weakness secondary to alpha-glucosidase deficiency. Each patient developed a fusiform basilar artery aneurysm, which(More)
In acute multiple sclerosis, cranial computerized tomography (CT) may show periventricular and deep white matter contrast-enhanced lesions that are easier to see using 8 mm rather than 13 mm cranial CT sections. Follow-up studies show that the lesions evolve either to areas of density similar to the surrounding white matter or to low-density lesions. We(More)
BACKGROUND Eccentric quadriceps contraction during landing and the resulting anterior tibial shear force are anterior cruciate ligament injury risk factors, while hamstring contraction limits anterior cruciate ligament loading. Anterior tibial shear force is derived from quadriceps and hamstring co-contraction, and a greater quadriceps/hamstring strength(More)
Neurologists in the United States were enumerated for each year from 1935 to 1984 on two bases: board certification (including Child Neurology and Psychiatry and Neurology) and completion of PG4 neurology residency training. The annual incidence of new neurologists was calculated at less than 200 until 1970; then it rose steadily to 380 in 1980, and(More)
A cerebellar hemangioblastoma with atypical radiologic and morphologic features is reported. On computed tomography this tumor presented as a single ring-enhancing mass in the right cerebellar hemisphere without adjacent cyst formation. It was radiologically indistinguishable from an abscess or malignant neoplasm. Postmortem examination demonstrated a(More)
Two-year-old Wistar rats showing repeated periods of pseudopregnancy were compared with young rats that had electrolytic lesions placed in the medial preoptic area. Electrolytic lesions in the medial preoptic area in young rats induced repeated pseudopregnancies what were similar to those seen in the old pseudopregnant rats. Serum prolactin levels were(More)
