We determined the location, functional response profile, and structural fiber connections of auditory areas with voice- and emotion-sensitive activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging. Bilateral regions responding to emotional voices were consistently found in the superior temporal gyrus, posterolateral to the(More)
It was the aim of this study to delineate the areas along the right superior temporal sulcus (STS) for processing of faces, voices, and face-voice integration using established functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) localizers and to assess their structural connectivity profile with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). We combined this approach with an(More)
This study examined identification of emotional information in facial expression, prosody, and their combination in 23 adult patients with combined attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) versus 31 healthy controls (HC) matched for gender, age, and education. We employed a stimulus set which was carefully balanced for valence as well as(More)
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) can casually co-occur with an encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroid disease. Recently we found an increased occurrence of weaknesses in sustained attention and response inhibition in a subgroup of euthyroid patients with HT as obtained by the d2 attention test. Previous studies in healthy subjects and patients with(More)

Cerebral malnutrition as well as a markedly increased rate of lethal malformations constitute the major problems of retardation. During the daily routine the question "retardation of growth or premature birth" poses itself time and again. Different methods of determining the period of gestation are being discussed: Two of the best methods used in(More)
