Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at increased risk for developing comorbid non-bipolar mood disorders. Fluoxetine monotherapy is an established treatment for pediatric mood disorders; however its efficacy in ADHD and comorbid mood disorder is unknown. Therefore, we evaluated 30 children who met DSM-IV criteria for ADHD and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine (1) whether the neuropsychological profiles of healthy individuals at risk (AR) for Huntington's disease who were positive (AR/+) or negative (AR/-) for the Huntington's disease genetic marker differed from those of symptomatic patients with Huntington's disease and normal control individuals and (2) whether the neuropsychological(More)
Congenital or acquired brain damage resulting in prospective memory loss can make a child unable to become independent of care givers. This note describes a memory aid developed for a 17 year old with spina bifida and hydrocephalus who requires continual reminding to perform health maintenance tasks such as medication and feeding.

This article reviews findings to date on the effects of exercise and sports in children and adolescents with developmental disabilities. Although much work remains, exercise and sports are associated with reduced maladaptive behavior in children with disabilities, as well as with improved physical fitness, self-esteem, and social competence. Improved(More)
Postictal EEG suppression and slowing recorded with scalp electrodes in patients with partial epilepsy is often maximal over the cortical area of ictal onset. The aim of this study was to determine whether a quantitative relationship exists between immediate postictal EEG suppression and hippocampal atrophy. Immediate postictal EEG was analyzed in 31(More)

As expected, adults with(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) on interictal epileptiform activity in the human hippocampus. Clinical studies have established the efficacy of vagus nerve stimulation in patients with epilepsy (VNS Study Group, 1995), although the electrophysiologic effects of VNS on the human hippocampus and mesial temporal lobe structures(More)
PURPOSE Epilepsy research has identified higher rates of learning disorders in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). However, most studies have not adequately assessed complex functional adult learning skills, such as reading comprehension and written language. We designed this study to evaluate our predictions that higher rates of reading(More)
