On the basis of the recent cloning of the beta-secretase, the beta-site amyloid precursor protein (APP)-cleaving enzyme (BACE), (Science, 286 (1999) 735), digoxigenin-labelled riboprobes were generated to localize the cellular expression pattern of BACE mRNA in brain sections of transgenic Tg2576 mice, overexpressing the Swedish mutation of the APP695(More)
Autism, like schizophrenia, are heterogeneous diseases, which are directed by both genetic factors and external influences in the early stages of development. Knowledge about the similarities and differences of these disorders can help early diagnosis and treatment. Patients with autism have specific cognitive difficulties in social relations. They are(More)
Electroencephalographic examination of boys aged 4–9 years with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) showed spectral power values and coherence in high-frequency bands (20–60 Hz) in various brain areas were higher than normal. Differences in spectral power were greater in the anterior areas of the left hemisphere; differences in coherence, in the right anterior(More)
EEG study of 5-7 years boys with autism revealed lower values of coherence in background delta, theta and alpha bands and higher values of coherence in background beta 1, beta 2 and gamma bands. Healthy boys showed higher values of beta and gamma coherence during cognitive task. Autistic persons demonstrated higher values of theta coherence during cognitive(More)
Patients with Down syndrome (human trisomy 21) develop neuropathological and cholinergic functional defects characteristic of Alzheimer's disease, which has been attributed to the location of the Alzheimer beta-amyloid precursor protein on chromosome 21. Due to the partial genetic homology between mouse chromosome 16 and human chromosome 21, murine trisomy(More)
