The importance of the cerebellum for non-motor functions is becoming more and more evident. The influence on cognitive functions from acquired cerebellar lesions during childhood, however, is not well known. We present follow-up data from 24 patients, who were operated upon during childhood for benign cerebellar tumours. The benign histology of these(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to obtain information about neurological and cognitive outcome for a population-based group of children after paediatric ischaemic stroke. METHODS Data from the Swiss neuropaediatric stroke registry (SNPSR), from 1.1.2000 to 1.7.2002, including children (AIS 1) and neonates (AIS 2). At 18-24 months after a stroke, a follow-up(More)
RATIONALE To provide a better understanding of cognitive functioning, motor outcome, behavior and quality of life after childhood stroke and to study the relationship between variables expected to influence rehabilitation and outcome (age at stroke, time elapsed since stroke, lateralization, location and size of lesion). METHODS Children who suffered from(More)
3-month-old infants' perception of "camouflaged" forms that are only visible when moving was studied. Displays were used in which figure and ground had an identical random dot texture, and no edge indicated the form of the figure. The form was invisible when stationary. Discrimination of 2 different forms was tested (a) when the forms were visible only(More)
This article summarizes some research on the development of motion perception in early infancy. The sensitivity for slow and rapid motion was studied with 1-month-old and 3-month-old babies. The findings suggest that there are different developmental courses for the detection of slow and rapid motion. The ability to detect very slow motion seems to improve(More)
The experiment reported here explores 3-month-old infants' ability to recognize a human face from a specific motion pattern lacking static facial features. A woman's face was covered with black makeup and numerous white triangles. It was videotaped while the woman was pretending to interact with a baby. A soft rubber mask was prepared likewise and was(More)
A soluble ferric reductase, SfrAB, which catalysed the NADPH-dependent reduction of chelated Fe(III), was previously purified from the dissimilatory Fe(III)-reducing micro-organism Geobacter sulfurreducens, suggesting that reduction of chelated forms of Fe(III) might be cytoplasmic. However, metabolically active spheroplast suspensions could not catalyse(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a hereditary X-linked recessive disorder affecting the synthesis of dystrophin, a protein essential for structural stability in muscle. Dystrophin also occurs in the central nervous system, particularly in the neocortex, hippocampus and cerebellum. Quantitative metabolic analysis by localized (1) H MRS was performed in(More)
In past studies, the P300 amplitude of the ERP has been found to be enhanced for infrequent, unpredictable and/or task-relevant eliciting events. A fourth factor, namely the physical change between two consecutive stimuli in event sequences used, has often been confounded with frequency, predictability and relevance. The current study examined whether(More)
