OBJECTIVE Language skills continue to develop rapidly in children during the school-age years, and the "snapshot" view of the neural substrates of language provided by current neuroimaging studies cannot capture the dynamic changes associated with brain development. The aim of this study was to conduct a 5-year longitudinal investigation of language(More)
OBJECTIVE Ventriculomegaly has been reported in bipolar disorder, although whether it occurs at illness onset or progresses during the course of the disorder is unknown. In addition, it is unknown whether ventriculomegaly in bipolar disorder reflects acquired volume loss or underdevelopment of periventricular structures. METHOD Magnetic resonance imaging(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in pediatric cochlear implantation candidates with residual hearing who are under sedation for evaluation of auditory function. DESIGN During fMRI, subjects heard a random sequence of tones (250-4000 Hz) presented 10 dB above hearing thresholds. Tones were interleaved with silence in a(More)
Previous studies have shown evidence of cortical reorganization following unilateral sensorineural hearing loss (USNHL). In addition, study participants with right USNHL have shown greater deficits in academic and language performance compared with those with left USNHL. A preliminary functional magnetic resonance imaging investigation was performed on a(More)
