OBJECTIVE Mutations of the genes encoding subunits of potassium voltage-gated channel, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, have been identified in patients with benign familial neonatal seizures (BFNS). This study set out to determine the frequency of microchromosomal deletions of KCNQ2 or KCNQ3 associated with BFNS. METHODS The study subjects were patients with BFNS (n =(More)
The purpose of this paper is to clarify the age-associated changes in walking movements. A two-dimensional movement analysis was conducted on a sample of 177 healthy women aged 19-82 years, with performance descriptors, kinematics, and kinetics as the parameters. An analysis of co-variance, with the gait velocity as co-variate and the categorized age group(More)
The objectives of this study were to explore a method of evaluating the walking motion of elderly males using mainly kinetic parameters and to determine how to maintain their level of walking motion to equal that of the young. We employed the coefficient of variation (CV) (=standard deviation[SD]/MEAN * 100), z-score, and weighted z-score (WZ) (=z-score/CV)(More)
We tried to establish an age-predictive equation from kinematic and kinetic parameters during walking using the 2007 Okada database of Japanese elderly. Some predictive equations were established for each gender (109 males and 139 females)--once for all variables, second for the stepwise variable selection method. The range of motion (ROM) of knee and hip(More)
For a comparative study between swimming in swimwear (control-sw) and swimming in clothes (clothes-sw), oxygen uptake (VO2) and ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) were measured. The subjects were six male members of a university swimming team. Three swimming strokes--the breaststroke, the front crawl stroke and the elementary backstroke--were applied. With(More)
Fumitremorgin A (FTA), a neurotropic mycotoxin induced dose-dependent abnormal behaviors, including tremor, clonic convulsion, kangaroo posture and tonic extensor convulsion in the mouse. FTA-induced tonic extensor convulsion was markedly suppressed by anticonvulsant, e.g. phenobarbital, phenytoin. Phenobarbital, trimethadione, valproic acid and mephenesin(More)
