Because of its highly compact genome, the pufferfish has become an important animal model in genome research. Although the small chromosome size renders chromosome analysis difficult, we have established both classical and molecular cytogenetics in the freshwater pufferfish Tetraodon nigroviridis (TNI). The karyotype of T. nigroviridis consists of 2n = 42(More)
The cross sections and forward-backward asymmetries of hadronic and leptonic events produced in ee collisions at centre-of-mass energies from 130 to 183 GeV are presented. Results for ee, μμ, ττ, qq̄, bb̄ and cc̄ production show no significant deviation from the Standard Model predictions. This enables constraints to be set upon physics beyond the Standard(More)
Giant cell glioblastoma is a rare variant within the spectrum of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tumors. A giant cell glioblastoma may be associated with a better prognosis than the common type of GBM after combined treatment involving tumor resection and radiochemotherapy. A giant cell glioblastoma may occur at various sites in the brain and spinal cord. To(More)
A search has been performed for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the data sample collected with the ALEPH detector at LEP, at centre-of-mass energies up to 209GeV. An excess of 3σ beyond the background expectation is found, consistent with the production of the Higgs boson with a mass near 114GeV/c2. Much of this excess is seen in the four-jet analyses,(More)
Hadronic Z decays into three jets are used to test QCD models of colour reconnection (CR). A sensitive quantity is the rate of gluon jets with a gap in the particle rapidity distribution and zero jet charge. Gluon jets are identified by either energy-ordering or by tagging two b-jets. The rates predicted by two string-based tunable CR models, one(More)
The surgical treatment of distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) aneurysms still presents a challenge for neurosurgeons because of their small size and their location in the depth of the narrow frontal interhemispheric fissure. This study aimed to investigate feasibility, safety, accuracy, and usefulness of electromagnetic (EM) navigation to aid clipping of(More)
OBJECTIVES Stimulation-induced hypokinetic gait disorders with freezing of gait (FOG) have been reported only recently as adverse effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus internus (GPi) in patients with dystonia. The aim of this work was to determine the frequency and the nature of this GPi-DBS-induced phenomenon. METHODS We(More)
Pharmacologically induced stereotypies and deficient sensorimotor gating, measured as prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response (ASR), are used as endophenotypes for certain symptoms common to neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and Tourette's syndrome (TS) among others. We here investigated whether high frequency deep brain(More)
Neuronal synchronization in the gamma (γ) band is considered important for information processing through functional integration of neuronal assemblies across different brain areas. Movement-related γ synchronization occurs in the human basal ganglia where it is centered at ~70 Hz and more pronounced contralateral to the moved hand. However, its functional(More)
OBJECTIVE Bilateral hyperostotic sphenoorbital meningiomas are extremely uncommon. Due to extensive infiltration of the orbits and the frontotemporal skull base, often only a subtotal tumor resection is feasible. Thus far, no treatment algorithms have been suggested for this rare tumor entity. We report on the surgical management of 3 patients. METHODS(More)
