A healthy 7-year-old boy developed a language disorder associated with clinical seizures and a paroxysmal EEG. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a small cysticercus deep in the left Sylvian fissure. We postulate a cause and effect relationship between the parasitic cyst and the clinical manifestations supported by the strategic(More)
Voice pathologies are a growing social concern, due to the role that voice and speech play in the performance of certain professions, and in the general population quality of life. In these last years emphasis has been placed in the early detection of these pathologies, for which computer tools performing voice processing are used to evaluate certain time(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of patellar taping (PT) on landing characteristics of the vertical ground reaction force (VGRF) and on flight time during a counter movement jump (CMJ). Eleven healthy male subjects (age: 31.1 ± 4.2 years) volunteered for the study. Each subject performed six CMJs under two different jumping(More)

PRAME belongs to a group of cancer/testis antigens (CTAs) that are characterized by their restricted expression in normal gametogenic tissues and a variety of tumors. The PRAME family is one of the most amplified gene families in the mouse and other mammalian genomes. Members of the PRAME gene family encode leucine-rich repeat (LRR) proteins functioning as(More)
The first task to be accomplished in speech recognition is the segmentation and labeling of records. Regarding speech, this is a very complicated and costly procedure, although of most importance because at the present time many available speech corpora are not segmented. This paper proposes a semi-automatic segmentation method in order to reduce the manual(More)

OBJECTIVE To estimate the seroprevalence of rubella and associated factors. METHODS Population-based seroprevalence study in a random sample of 2,124 individuals, aged six to 64 years, representative by age, sex and area in Medellín, Colombia, 2009. Biological and socioeconomic variables were analyzed for their association with serum protection against(More)
