The sequence of events involved in the neurodegeneration caused by transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) is not yet known. Using a murine scrapie model in which neurodegeneration in the hippocampus is restricted to CA2, we show that pyramidal neuron damage and death by an apoptotic mechanism occur early in the incubation period, prior to the(More)
The sequence of events involved in the neurodegeneration caused by transmissible spongiform encephalopathies is not yet known. Using a murine scrapie model in which neurodegeneration in the hippocampus is restricted to the CA2, we show an up-regulation of the proapoptotic markers Fas and caspase 3 early in the incubation period prior to disease-specific(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether implicit memory is preserved in children with traumatic brain injury (TBI). A fragmented picture-completion procedure (Snodgrass, Smith, Feenan, & Corwin, 1987) was used to compare implicit and explicit memory of 12 children with severe long-term TBI and 12 controls, matched for age and gender. On the implicit memory(More)

This quantitative pre-test post-test study investigated a manualized intervention, Pencil Gymnastics*, to determine its efficacy in improving manual dexterity in children (n=13) between the ages of 5 and 7 years old. The main focus of Pencil Gymnastics is to ready the hands for tripod grip and pencil control, while strengthening the extrinsic and intrinsic(More)
This paper begins with a review of what is currently known about false confessions and their effect on criminal cases. It examines the three main types of false confessions, the situational and personal risk factors for making a false confession, and the impact of confession evidence on jurors. The purpose of this paper is to examine how jurors perceive an(More)
