Complementary DNA clones of genes induced by platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) in BALB/c-3T3 cells were isolated; one such clone contains a domain having nucleotide sequence homology with the third exon of c-fos. This nucleotide sequence homology is reflected in the predicted amino acid sequences of the gene products. Under low stringency conditions,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine CASI-S accuracy in the diagnosis of dementia. METHOD The Cognitive Abilities Screening Instrument - Short Form (CASI-S) was applied in 43 Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and 74 normal controls.

This paper discusses how to take advantage of clustering techniques to analyze and extract useful information from multi-temporal images of low spatial resolution satellites to monitor the sugarcane expansion. Additionally, we introduce the SatImagExplorer system that was developed to automatically extract time series from a huge volume of remote sensing(More)
Neuroanatomy in addition to neurophysiology, are the basic areas for the proper formation from health students to specialized professionals in neuroscience. A step by step guide for practical studies of neuroanatomy is required for this kind of knowledge to become more acceptable among medical students, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropediatricians and(More)
BACKGROUND Data on the prevalence of primitive reflexes (PR) in adulthood, their pathological significance and relationship to age and cognition are controversial. OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between PR and cognition in 30 patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 154 control subjects. METHOD Diagnosis of probable AD was based on(More)
