Children aged 5–7 years with early childhood autism were found to have more marked right-sided predominance of alpha-rhythm spectral power both in baseline conditions and on cognitive loading (counting), along with a decreased level of alpha rhythm power than normal children. The spectral power of the fast rhythms increased from baseline on cognitive(More)
An attempt was made to characterize the features of the development of the neurons of the sensory trigeminal nuclei, a basic structure of the sensory support of alimentary behavior, in the late stages of postnatal ontogenesis. A technique involving viable sections of the brainstem of infant rats at the ages of two, four, and eight weeks was utilized. An(More)
We report here a comparative analysis of spectral power and mean coherence in the alpha, beta, and gamma rhythms in children aged 5–7 years, both normal and with early childhood autism, at rest and in conditions of a cognitive task (counting). In baseline conditions, both healthy children and those with autism showed a marked frontal-occipital alpha(More)
We studied properties of cloned BACE mRNA (beta-site of the enzyme cleaving amyloid precursor protein) and evaluated the possibility of using this clone for identification and/or prediction of neurodegenerative disorders associated with cholinergic deficiency. Wistar rats subjected to immunohistochemical destruction of the basal forebrain cholinergic system(More)
EEG traces recorded in the state of calm waking from boys aged 5–7 years with autism spectrum disorders showed lower values of coherence in the δ, θ, and α ranges and higher values in the β and γ ranges as compared with healthy subjects. On performance of a cognitive task (counting), healthy children showed the greatest increases in coherence in the β and γ(More)
We present here a comparative analysis of spectral power and mean coherence of the theta and gamma rhythms in healthy boys and boys with early childhood autism aged 5–7 years (mean age 6 years 1 month) in the state of rest and on cognitive loading (counting). In contrast to the situation in patients, the background theta rhythm in healthy children showed a(More)
The work represents the results of a comparative study of a spectral power as well as averaged coherence in theta and gamma-EEG band in a healthy and autistic boys (the mean age 6 years 1 month). Healthy boys showed a decreasing in theta spectral power as well as in averaged coherence, and increasing in gamma spectral power as well as in averaged coherence(More)
Right hemispheric dominance of the baseline alpha-band spectral power was revealed in 5-7 years boys with autism. This feature persisted during performance of a cognitive task (counting). Also, boys with autism showed lowered level of the alpha spectral power as compared with healthy children. In healthy children, the gamma spectral power increased during(More)
School behavior and learning were examined in 68 right-, lefthanded, and ambidextral 10-12-year-old children earlier exposed to social deprivation. Socially deprived children revealed stress and high trait anxiety. "Imposed lefthandedness" is considered to be an important factor responsible for the high level of trait anxiety. In the group of socially(More)
The experimental rat model of the local brainstem destruction by isolated electrical coagulation of the lateral vestibular nucleus Deiters was offered for studying the adaptive-compensatory CNS reactions after acute brainstem lesions. Morphological changes and functional derangements were correlated in 22 animals. Neurological disorders and behavioural(More)
