Identical twins developed myoclonic epilepsy in their teens. One twin remained mildly affected but the other went on to develop sensorineural deafness and ataxia with lactic acidosis and ragged red fibres leading to a diagnosis of mitochondrial encephalopathy. Multiple stroke-like episodes with hemiparesis followed, indicating progression from a MERRF to a(More)
Neuropathological studies were carried out in two patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathies in whom the underlying lesions in muscle mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and respiratory enzyme complexes have been investigated. The first, a man with Kearns-Sayre syndrome, died at the age of 49 years. Autopsy showed an old parietal lobe infarct, diffuse spongiform(More)
This paper presents evidence of preservation of acquired music performance functions in a right-handed man with a large dominant hemisphere lesion. Results of music testing, speech pathology testing, neuropsychological testing and neurological examination are presented, with evidence of intact music skills (melodic perception and an ability to read at(More)
Despite extensive research on running mechanics, there is still a knowledge gap with respect to the degree of relationship between mediolateral ground reaction forces (ML-GRF) and foot pronation. Our goal was to investigate whether differences exist in ML-GRF among runners that exhibit different degrees of pronation. Seventeen male and 13 female(More)
