OBJECTIVE A prominent noncore symptom of autistic disorder is disturbed sleep, but relatively few studies have investigated this symptom. METHOD A multimethod approach assessed the quantity and quality of sleep in 194 children (68 with autism [AUT], 57 with developmental delay without autism [DD], 69 with typical development) recorded over 1 week.

OBJECTIVE This study examined the persistence of sleep problems in preschool children with autism and two matched comparison groups: children with developmental delay without autism and typically developing children. Sleep problems were defined subjectively by parent report, by the Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ), and objectively by(More)
BACKGROUND Sleep problems are a common complaint of parents of preschool children. Children with neurodevelopmental disorders have even more disrupted sleep than typically developing children. Although disrupted nighttime sleep has been reported to affect daytime behavior, the pathway from sleep disruption to sleep problems, to impairments in daytime(More)
To clarify the molecular mechanisms of silkworm diapause, it is necessary to investigate the molecular basis at protein level. Here, the spectra of peptides digested from silkworm diapause and non-diapause eggs were obtained from liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and were analyzed by bioinformatics methods. A total of 501 and 562(More)
In this thesis we present a solution to the natural language processing task of ordering prenominal modifiers, a problem that has applications from machine translation to natural language generation. In machine translation, constraints on modifier order-ings vary from language to language so some reordering of modifiers may be necessary. In natural language(More)
