OBJECTIVE Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a method to identify and quantify abnormalities resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI). MRI abnormalities in children with TBI have not been fully characterized according to the frequency, location, and quantitative measurement of a range of pathologies critical for studies of neuropsychological(More)
BACKGROUND Intermittent chronic administration of ethanol to rats has been shown previously to produce a hyperexcitable, kindling-like state, accompanied by reduced inhibitory synaptic transmission in the hippocampus and changes in gamma-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptors. Further information is needed on the detailed changes in GABAA receptors and(More)
Variations in the size of the human corpus callosum were examined as a possible morphological substrate of functional asymmetries of the cerebral hemispheres, such as cerebral speech dominance. The midsagittal surface area of the corpus callosum, obtained by magnetic resonance imaging, was measured in 50 patients with epilepsy and 50 neurologically normal(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS The first-degree offspring of patients with type 2 diabetes are prone to develop type 2 diabetes, and have both insulin resistance and beta cell impairment. However, it is still unclear whether both pathophysiological features are inseparably combined and which is the outstanding determinant in the offspring. METHODS Glucose metabolism,(More)
