Neuroanatomical structure appears to be altered in preterm infants, but there has been little insight into the major perinatal risk factors associated with regional cerebral structural alterations. MR images were taken to quantitatively compare regional brain tissue volumes between term and preterm infants and to investigate associations between perinatal(More)
A substantial number of prematurely born infants will experience later neurodevelopmental challenges. Abnormal development of the cerebellum may be related to some of the impairments exhibited by preterm children. To test the hypothesis that cerebellar development is structurally impaired in preterm infants and associated with adverse outcomes, we studied(More)
The first population-based study in the central region of the Republic of Serbia (total population 283,103) was carried out to assess some epidemiological features of febrile convulsions among children of between 6 months and 5 years of age. During the 10-year period, 1986 to 1995, there were 570 cases of the first febrile convulsions (287 males and 283(More)
All children born in 1989 and 1990 in the district of Krusevac in Central Serbia (population 140,000) were followed to the end of 1995. The total number of children was 3,102. The cumulative incidence of febrile seizures was 25.1/1,000, that of single febrile seizures 3.9/1,000 and that of epilepsy (i.e. recurrent afebrile seizures) 6.5/1,000. The peak(More)
This chapter shows how the online environment is used to promote quality teaching within a research project conducted by the Assessment Research Centre at the University of Melbourne. The project investigates how teacher teams use assessment data to inform teaching decisions and extensive efforts are made to check their learning through performance(More)
The objective of the present study was to test the different hypotheses about factors related to the occurrence of brain tumors in children and adolescents. The case-control study of brain tumors was conducted in Belgrade (Serbia) from 1998 through 2000. The study group consisted of 60 newly diagnosed brain tumor patients and the same number of hospital(More)
