OBJECTIVE To learn if people with persistent developmental stuttering and atypical anatomy of their auditory temporal cortex have, when compared to control subjects, changes in fluency induced with delayed auditory feedback (DAF). BACKGROUND DAF improves fluency in many individuals who stutter, and induces dysfluency in some normal people. The planum(More)
Eighteen asthmatics, aged 7 to 43, rated their breathing on a scale of 0 to 5 (worst to best). They were then informed of their predicted normal peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) and instructed in proper PEFR measurement. Each subject then estimated and measured PEFR under physician supervision and subsequently rated breathing, estimated and measured PEFR at(More)
A prospective study analysed the prognostic value of nm23-H1 allelic deletions in colorectal cancer. Of 21 patients with no evidence of distant metastases at initial operation, 11 showed nm23-H1 allelic deletions (including 1 homozygous deletion); 10 had no nm23-H1 deletions. After median follow-up of 25 months, distant metastases had developed in 8 of 11(More)
Apparent mineralocorticoid excess and licorice induced hypertension, both hypertensive disorders, have been attributed to a defect in the enzyme 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11 beta-HSD), which interconverts cortisol to cortisone. Therefore, we undertook this study to determine the role of human placental 11 beta-HSD activity in preeclampsia, which(More)
In a hospital-based study of almost 174,000 total births during 1968--1976, the authors found the incidence of congenital hydrocephalus to be 66 cases per 100,000 births. There was a significantly higher frequency in children born to mothers who themselves had been born in Puerto Rico but no significant difference in incidence between whites and blacks. The(More)
Functional myopia may be defined as the refractive condition of the eye due to spasm of the ciliary muscle. As a result of the ciliary muscle spasm, the crystalline lens becomes more convex, creating a myopic refractive condition. The normal increase and decrease in the refractive power of the crystalline lens is know as accommodation and is controlled by(More)
