The present report is concerned with the reflex sensitivity to visual stimulation of the blind half of the retinal field in a case of hemianopsia after surgical resection of the left occipital lobe.t The t The surgical, anatomical, physiological and psychological aspects of the case are fully discussed in the Proc. Assoc. Res. Nerv. & Mental Dis., 1933. The(More)
Sexually dimorphic mammalian tissues, including sexual organs and the brain, contain stem cells that are directly or indirectly regulated by sex hormones. An important question is whether stem cells also exhibit sex differences in physiological function and hormonal regulation in tissues that do not show sex-specific morphological differences. The terminal(More)
A previous study of sensitivity to light in a case of hemianopsia following surgical resection of one occipital lobe indicated absence of reflex sensitivity in the blind area as measured by the reinforcement inhibition effects of light on the eyelid reflex to sound.2 It seemed of methodological interest to investigate similarly a case in which there was a(More)
Polycomb group (PcG) proteins are essential regulators of hematopoietic stem cells. Recent extensive mutation analyses of the myeloid malignancies have revealed that inactivating somatic mutations in PcG genes such as EZH2 and ASXL1 occur frequently in patients with myelodysplastic disorders including myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) and(More)
Schistosomes infect more than 200 million of the world's poorest people. These parasites live in the vasculature, producing eggs that spur a variety of chronic, potentially life-threatening, pathologies exacerbated by the long lifespan of schistosomes, that can thrive in the host for decades. How schistosomes maintain their longevity in this immunologically(More)
