Three children in a West African family had Gaucher's disease of juvenile onset (Type 3), and all showed an identical neurological disorder. The diagnosis was substantiated by histochemical demonstration of Gaucher cells in bone marrow, liver, and spleen, the finding of an excess of glucosyl ceramides in a liver extract, and a deficient activity of the(More)
Small but reproducible and consistent auditory evoked magnetic fields have been obtained for 6 male subjects. These fields exhibit features with a clear spatial symmetry which can be accounted for by assuming that their source consists of two vertically oriented neuronal complexes symmetrically located deep in the temporal lobes. This assignment, which is(More)
A family is reported in which three boys, two full brothers and a half brother, presented with marked delay in motor milestones, severe limb and truncal ataxia, nystagmus, speech delay and moderate global retardation. Autosomal recessive and sex linked recessive forms of cerebellar hypoplasia are reviewed and it is suggested that this family may have a(More)
The maturation of deglutition apnoea time was investigated in 42 bottle-fed preterm infants, 28 to 37 weeks gestation, and in 29 normal term infants as a comparison group. Deglutition apnoea times reduced as infants matured, as did the number and length of episodes of multiple-swallow deglutition apnoea. The maturation appears related to developmental age(More)
Pallidal stimulation is widely used in the treatment of movement disorder in adults but is less well reported in the treatment of dystonia in children. Despite inconsistent results in the past, its use in dystonia in Parkinson's disease is again attracting interest with promising results. Bilateral as well as unilateral pallidotomies have been performed and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed at experimentally affecting the fluency with which positive and negative future events are generated by depressive adolescents. METHOD Adolescent in-patients with elevated depression were randomized into a positive or negative mood induction condition (N=24 in each group) and then presented with the Future Thinking Task asking(More)
The non-invasive Exeter Dysphagia Assessment Technique (EDAT) was evaluated as a method of assessing the aetiology of dysphagia in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Data were collected from a group of 20 typically developing children (nine girls, 11 boys; age range 7 to 14 years) for comparison with 125 dysphagic children with CP (81 boys, 44 girls; age(More)
