The present study examined 13 patients with typical left unilateral spatial neglect to explore the mechanisms of neglect in copying a single object. All patients identified the figure of a sunflower as a flower that had petals all around the central circle. Besides, in the free viewing of the flowers prepared by the examiner, 10 of the 13 patients could(More)
During normal voluntary movements, re-afferent sensory input continuously converges on the spinal circuits that are activated by descending motor commands. This time-varying input must either be synergistically combined with the motor commands or be appropriately suppressed to minimize interference. The earliest suppression could be produced by presynaptic(More)
OBJECTIVES Volumetric CT using a cone beam has been developed by several manufacturers for dentomaxillofacial imaging. The purpose of this study was to measure doses for implant planning with cone beam volumetric imaging (CBVI) in comparison with conventional multidetector CT (MDCT). METHODS The two CBVI systems used were a 3D Accuitomo (J. Morita),(More)
Recent studies on the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) have determined ultrastructural criteria for the identification of these previously enigmatic cells. This review deals with the electron microscopic findings obtained by the author's research group in different tissue regions of the gut in mice, rats and guinea-pigs, comparing these with reports from(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper is to present the system configuration and physical properties of a new dentomaxillofacial X-ray cone beam CT system (CB MercuRay) being developed. METHODS The system consists of an image intensifier and a cone beam X-ray source. There are two different models of this system, each with a different size image(More)
Somatosensory evoked magnetic fields (SEFs), corresponding with electrical median nerve stimulation, were measured using an MRI-linked, whole-head MEG system. In total 184 hemispheres, SEFs were measured, involving 22 normal volunteers and 70 patients with intracranial lesions. The first SEF peak appeared 20.2 +/- 1.5 msec (mean +/- S.D.) after stimulation.(More)
It is generally accepted that the precision grip and independent finger movements (IFMs) in monkey and man are controlled by the direct (monosynaptic) corticomotoneuronal (CM) pathway. This view is based on previous observations that pyramidotomy causes near permanent deficits of IFMs. However, in addition to the direct CM pathway, pyramidotomy interrupts(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the anchorage potential of the titanium mini-implant for orthodontic intrusion of the mandibular posterior teeth. Six mini-implants were surgically placed around the mandibular third premolars on each side in 3 adult male beagle dogs. On the buccal site, three mini-implants were placed distal to the apex of the distal(More)
The purpose of this study was to obtain further information regarding cellular differentiation and proliferative characteristics of dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDL) arising in the retroperitoneum and mesentery for accurate diagnosis and prognostic criteria. The patients included 20 men and 12 women, mean age, 60 years (range, 33 to 80 years). Twenty-seven(More)
Visual evoked magnetic fields due to pattern reversal stimuli were measured in 5 normal subjects using a helmet-shaped 66 channel magnetoencephalography system linked to MRI. The magnetic topography of the prominent 100 ms response (P100m) evoked by fullfield visual showed a double-dipole pattern in the occipital areas of all subjects. Right or left(More)
