Male and female adolescents who qualified for a DSM-III-R diagnosis of Alcohol Abuse or Dependence and a control sample of nonalcohol-abusing male and female adolescents were administered a battery of intellectual, achievement, and neuropsychologic tests. Alcohol-abusing adolescents were found to have significantly lower verbal and full-scale IQ scores than(More)
The Cognitive Laterality Battery of neuropsychological tests is described and normative data and statistics are presented. Selection of tests was based on converging evidence from studies on patients with unilateral cerebral lesions, complete forebrain commissurotomy, and on normal subjects suggesting that visuospatial skills are primarily related to the(More)
No differences were seen in performance on either verbosequential or visuospatial neuropsychological tests among three groups of women. There were also no differences among the phases of the menstrual cycle on any of the tests. The design of this study was to sample performance of women on verbosequential and visuospatial neuropsychological tests during(More)
We describe a family in which lentigines were present in the index patient, in three of her seven siblings, in their mother, and in a niece (the daughter of an affected sister). Cutaneous myxomas were present in the index patient, in two of her brothers, and probably in their mother. In addition, the index patient had two cardiac myxomas. multiple myxoid(More)
It has long been believed that stress and drug abuse are related. Studies using animal models have repeatedly demonstrated that stressed animals more readily self-administer alcohol or other drugs. Similarly, human patients consistently report in clinical interviews that stress is one reason for taking drugs. There are also studies that document(More)
We examine the seasonal cycle of near-surface air temperature simulated by 17 coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP). Nine of the models use ad hoc``¯ux adjustment'' at the ocean surface to bring model simulations close to observations of the present-day climate. We group(More)
Chromosomes from four patients with variants of the Turner syndrome were investigated by G- and C-bandind and DNA replication techniques. Their karyotypes were: 1) 46,X,idic(X)(q28), 2) 45,X/46,X,idic(X)(q24), 3) 45,X/46,X,idic(X)(p11), and 4) 46,X,i(Xq). In patients 1, 2, and 3, the abnormal X was isodicentric, with different break-and-fusion points in(More)
