Stuttering is an uncommon presentation of acute stroke. Reported cases have often been associated with left sided cortical lesions, aphasia, and difficulties with other non-linguistic tests of rhythmic motor control. Three patients with subcortical lesions resulting in stuttering are discussed. In one patient the ability to perform time estimations with a(More)
Six patients with hypergraphia and epilepsy are presented and their clinical features compared with other patients reported in the literature. It is suggested that hypergraphia occurs more frequently in patients with right-sided non-dominant temporal lobe lesions, in contrast for example to the schizophreniform presentation of left-sided lesions. Other(More)
Malformations of cortical development (MCD) are linked to epilepsy in humans. MCD encompass a broad spectrum of malformations, which occur as the principal pathology or a secondary disruption. Recently, Rosen et al. (2012) reported that BXD29-Trl4(lps-2J)/J mice have subcortical nodular heterotopias with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum (p-ACC).(More)
Despite the wide availability of body-sensing technologies, the design of control gestures that feel natural and that can be intuitively "guessed" by the users is still an embodied interaction challenge. This is especially true for systems that require a <i>set</i> of complementary control gestures. Part of the problem lies in the separation between the(More)
Museums are increasingly embracing technologies that provide highly-individualized and highly-interactive experiences to visitors. With embodied interaction experiences, increased localization accuracy supports greater nuance in interaction design, but there is usually a tradeoff between fast, accurate tracking and the ability to preserve the identity of(More)
As data rather than physical artifacts become more commonly the product of modern scientific endeavor, we must attend to humandata interactions as people reason about and with representations of data increasingly being presented in museum settings. Complex data sets can be impenetrable for novices, so the exhibit presented here was designed to give visitors(More)
Many factors are known to mediate museum visitors' learning during their interactions with exhibits, including designed elements of the exhibit itself, the other visitors present in the space, and visitors' own backgrounds and prior knowledge. Research indicates that learners' use of a first-person <i>Actor</i> perspective may confer agency to the learner(More)
The "Uncanny Valley" theory explains the counter-intuitive phenomenon where people may get suddenly uncomfortable with an artificial entity when it becomes very similar to humans. We propose the existence of an "uncanny valley" for embodied interaction, when a user's body motions in the physical space (the locus of interaction) are incompletely mapped into(More)
RFID is usually used for <i>identification</i> but with some post-processing it can also be used for <i>localization</i>. These properties expand the typical range of possible interactions with digital displays in museums. Our goal is to encourage the collaborative investigation of a rich information space presented on an Ambient Display in a museum(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is a genetically transmitted disorder associated with atrophy of the basal ganglia. Studies of the neuroanatomical correlates of HD have focused primarily on the anterior areas of the basal ganglia and on establishing an association between structural changes resulting from the presence and course of the illness. The objective of(More)
