OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of family history on clinical expression of Tourette's syndrome (TS). BACKGROUND Recent studies have suggested that clinical expression of TS is similar among sporadic (SP) and familial patients but may be influenced by bilineal (BIL) transmission of tics or obsessive-compulsive behavior (OCB) in high-density(More)
We tested the hypothesis that the obese (fa/fa) Zucker rat has a sleep organization that differs from that of lean Zucker rats. We used the polygraphic technique to identify and to quantify the distribution of the three main states of the rat: wakefulness (W), non-rapid-eye-movement (NREM), and rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep states. Assessment of states was(More)
Cortical and subcortical gray matter hypointensities on T2-weighted MR images (T2WI) occur commonly in MS brains and have been related to disease duration, clinical course, and the level of neurologic disability. These hypointensities have been reported to occur in the thalamus, basal ganglia, and rolandic cortex. We assessed whether T2 hypointensity is(More)
Parenchymal hypodensity is a proposed risk factor for hemorrhage after recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) thrombolysis for ischemic stroke. In Buffalo, NY, and Houston, TX, the authors reviewed 70 patients who were treated with intravenous TPA for acute middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke. Two observers blinded to clinical outcome analyzed(More)
A confocal laser scanning microscopy method has been developed for the quantitation of green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a reporter of gene activity in living three-dimensional structures such as sea urchin and starfish embryos. This method is between 2 and 50 times more accurate than conventional confocal microscopy procedures depending on the(More)
