OBJECTIVE The Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology and the Practice Committee of the Child Neurology Society develop practice parameters as strategies for patient management based on analysis of evidence. For this parameter, the authors reviewed available evidence on the evaluation of the child with recurrent headaches and(More)
The involutions in this paper are algebra anti-automorphisms of period two. Involutions on endomorphism algebras of finite-dimensional vector spaces are adjoint to symmetric or skew-symmetric bilinear forms, or to hermitian forms. Analogues of the classical invariants of quadratic forms (discriminant, Clifford algebra, signature) have been defined for(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that atomoxetine does not significantly worsen tic severity relative to placebo in children and adolescents with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and comorbid tic disorders. METHODS Study subjects were 7 to 17 years old, met Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV criteria for ADHD, and had(More)
Ten developmentally delayed children with excessive drooling were randomized in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy and safety of transdermal scopolamine. Over half of the patients had a statistically significant reduction in drooling, and one-third had cessation of drooling, while wearing the scopolamine patch. This short-term(More)
Segmental or spinal myoclonus is an uncommon involuntary movement in infancy which has been attributed to sepsis, degenerative and developmental diseases of the spinal cord, birth trauma, and sclerosing panencephalitis. A premature infant presenting with segmental myoclonus associated with extreme hyperglycorrhachia secondary to the administration of(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to (1) determine the prevalence of weight misperception among overweight and obese men with total body fat levels ≥ 25%, and (2) examine associations of weight misperception with anthropometric and body composition measures. METHODS Data came from 4,200 overweight or obese men from the 1999 to 2006 National Health(More)
INTRODUCTION Innovative approaches are needed to promote physical activity among young adult overweight and obese African American women. We sought to describe key elements that African American women desire in a culturally relevant Internet-based tool to promote physical activity among overweight and obese young adult African American women. METHODS A(More)
Because little is known about the magnitudes of the shear forces and the unit shear stresses acting between skin and cushion or bed, and even less about shear stresses and their effects deeper within body tissues, this preliminary study on an instrument attempting to estimate shear-force on the skin is being published as a stimulus toward further work.(More)
