Long PLUNC1 (LPLUNC1, C20orf114) is a member of a family of poorly described proteins (PLUNCS) expressed in the upper respiratory tract and oral cavity, which may function in host defence. Although it is one of the most highly expressed genes in the upper airways and has been identified in sputum and nasal secretions by proteomic studies, localisation of(More)
Wallerian degeneration (WD) after ischemic stroke has been associated to persistent motor impairment, but signal intensity changes on conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are generally not detected until four weeks after the event. We report a 54 year old male patient, referred to our hospital for sudden-onset left hemiparesis. Cerebral CT showed(More)
Cerebral Magnetic Resonance imaging in acute postictal period is performed to exclude structural processes that can be responsible for the epileptic activity. Sometimes, the findings are the result of the epileptic activity, and not the cause reflecting the pathophysiologic changes during epileptic activity. In this paper we describe a patient with status(More)
Visual speech animation, or lip synchronization, is the process of matching speech with the lip movements of a virtual character. It is a challenging task because all articulatory movements must be controlled and synchronized with the audio signal. Existing language-independent systems usually require fine tuning by an artist to avoid artefacts appearing in(More)
A 47-year-old woman was seen for progressive behavioural and cognitive disturbances slowly evolving over a 1-year period. Neuropsychological evaluation disclosed moderate to severe impairment of all cortical functions. Besides this no other clinical abnormality was found. MRI diffusion weighted imaging disclosed hyperintense cortical lesions in a(More)
