A multi-modal abnormality in the integration of parts and whole has been proposed to account for a bias toward local stimuli in individuals with autism (Frith, 1989; Mottron & Belleville, 1993). In the current experiment, we examined the utility of hierarchical models in characterising musical information processing in autistic individuals. Participants(More)
The efficacy of cognitive training was assessed in persons with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and persons with normal cognitive aging. Forty-seven participants were included in this study: 28 with MCI and 17 controls. Twenty-one participants received intervention (20 MCI and 9 controls) and 16 participants (8 MCI and 8 controls) received no intervention(More)
In the present study, copying tasks were used to assess hierarchical aspects of visual perception in a group of 10 nonsavant autistic individuals with normal intelligence. In Experiment 1, the hierarchical order of graphic construction and the constancy of this order were measured for the copying of objects and nonobjects. In comparison to control(More)
The radiological aspect, pathology, treatment and results of 132 subdural haematomas observed in 100 patients, are discussed. The majority of these cases were characterized by a nonhomogenous CT scan picture, resulting from repeated bleeding in a previous subdural haematoma evolving to chronicity, or in a pre-existent subdural hygroma. Taking aspirin may(More)
Individuals with Asperger syndrome may, when exposed to hostility (e.g. bullying at school or at work), develop hostile ideas against their social environment, sometimes leading to aggression. These ideas and acts may be confounded with those arising from a persecutory state in schizoid or schizotypal personality, or even schizophrenia. These entities can(More)
In four large, 15-25 mm, internal carotid artery aneurysms (3 intracavernous and 1 carotid ophthalmic), treatment by common carotid ligation was preferred. Pre- and postoperative MRI were obtained, at a delay between 5 to 9 years. Recovery of the ocular and visual symptomatology was a function of the role played by mechanical and/or ischaemic factors. No(More)
In the scope of a late intervention policy on ruptured intracranial aneurysms, on D.+12 on an average, we first used tranexamic acid, at moderate doses: 3 g orally or 1.5 g intravenously per day. We, subsequently, added nimodipine, usually 240 mg orally per day or 2 mg intravenously per hour. The medical treatment consisted of amply sufficient hydration,(More)
