One hundred cases of Moyamoya disease were encountered between 1961 and 1980. This report describes the clinical characteristics and emphasizes the angiographic findings and clinical correlation in this disease. Reasons for the differences in clinical and radiological presentation in children versus adults are proposed and a possible pathophysiological(More)
1. We studied the contribution of the individual semicircular canals to the generation of horizontal and torsional eye movements in cynomolgus monkeys. Eye movements were elicited by sinusoidal rotation about a vertical (gravitational) axis at 0.2 Hz with the animals tilted in various attitudes of static forward or backward pitch. The gains of the(More)
Dynamics and kinematics of the angular vestibulo-ocular reflex in monkey: effects of canal plugging. J. Neurophysiol. 80: 3077-3099, 1998. Horizontal and roll components of the angular vestibulo-ocular reflex (aVOR) were elicited by sinusoidal rotation at frequencies from 0.2 Hz (60 degrees/s) to 4.0 Hz ( approximately 6 degrees/s) in cynomolgus monkeys.(More)
1. The adaptive plasticity of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) following a selective lesion of the peripheral vestibular organs was investigated in rhesus monkeys whose lateral semicircular canals were inactivated by plugging of the canal lumen in both ears. Gain and phase of horizontal, vertical, and torsional slow-phase eye velocity were determined from(More)
BACKGROUND The annual urinary screening of Japanese children above three years of age has identified a progressive renal tubular disorder characterized by low molecular weight proteinuria, hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis, and this represents a variant of Dent's disease. Hitherto, 12 mutations of the X-linked renal specific chloride channel, CLCN5, have(More)
The extracellular poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) depolymerase gene from Alcaligenes faecalis T1 was cloned into Escherichia coli DH1 by using the plasmid pUC8. An A. faecalis T1 genomic library was prepared in E. coli from a partial Sau3AI digest and screened with antibody against the depolymerase. Of the 29 antibody-positive clones, 1 (pDP14), containing about 4(More)
A case of cerebral tumor with ipsilateral cerebral hemiatrophy is presented and five previously reported cases are reviewed. The etiology of this entity is discussed on the basis of the symptomatological and clinicopathological findings noted in these six cases. It is suggested that ipsilateral cerebral hemiatrophy is due to thinning of the cerebral cortex(More)
