We present the case of a 26 year-old man who developed normally until he began having difficulty walking at age 12. He subsequently became unable to stand at 15 years old and exhibited mental regression and generalized tonic convulsions by age 20. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed incomplete myelination of cerebral white matter, which resembled that of(More)
There has been a discrepancy among past studies with regard to the relation between negative priming and familiarity of stimuli. That is, Malley and Strayer (1995; Strayer & Grison, 1999) reported that the more familiar the stimuli were, the larger negative priming became (i.e., a positive correlation), whereas DeSchepper and Treisman (1996; Treisman &(More)
A patient with an unusually mild form of Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease was studied. Clinically, mild developmental delay with acquisition of assisted walking at 16months and mild spastic tetraplegia were evident, but no nystagmus, cerebellar, or extra-pyramidal signs were present. PLP1 mutation analysis revealed a nucleotide substitution adjacent to the(More)
Associations between graphemes and colours in a nonsynaesthetic Japanese population were investigated. Participants chose the most suitable colour from 11 basic colour terms for each of 40 graphemes from the four categories of graphemes used in the Japanese language (kana characters, English alphabet letters, and Arabic and kanji numerals). This test was(More)
We conducted three experiments in order to investigate the effect of stimulus orientation on negative priming (NP). Using the picture naming task, Murray (1995) reported the occurrence of semantic NP by rotated distractors. As the rotation of picture stimuli seems to have little effect to reduce distractor interference, in the present study we used the(More)
