We investigated whether the expected differences between musicians and nonmusicians in their ability to detect a rhythm change were reflected in their event-related potentials (ERPs) and, if reflected, how these ERP differences associated with behavioral indices. Stimuli were three consecutive and equally spaced drum beats followed by a rest period to form… (More)
An unusual variation of the extensor digitorum brevis manus in a male cadaver is presented. The band-shaped muscle was located at the ulnar side of the hand between the fourth and fifth extensors. It originated from the deep carpal fascia and inserted to the extensor tendons of the fourth and fifth fingers with a tendon and a slip, respectively. The origin,… (More)
Hydatid cysts of central nervous system are rare and comprise only 2% to 3% of all hydatid cysts reported. Orbital localization is very uncommon and has been reported less than 1% of all hydatid diseases. The primary treatment of hydatid disease is surgical. The most important complication of the surgical treatment is secondary hydatidosis due to spillage… (More)
Esthesioneuroblastoma is an uncommon malignant neoplasm that arises from olfactory mucosa, often with intracranial extension. A case report of the youngest victim in the literature (2-year-old boy) is presented.
INTRODUCTION Trace elements are primary components of biological structures; however, they can be toxic when their concentrations are higher than those needed for biological functions. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study serum levels of trace elements were measured in 30 patients (mean age was 26.9±11.2 years) newly diagnosed with germ cell… (More)
To evaluate the potential value of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) using 111In-DTPA (diethylenetriaminepenta acetic acid)-D-Phe1-octreotide (111In-pentetreotide) in patients with recurring or persisting symptoms of myasthenia gravis (MG), 14 consecutive cases with such supplemental receptor imaging during neurological routine follow-up were… (More)
An accessory flexor digitorum longus muscle (M. flexor digitorum longus accessorius) in a 60-year-old male cadaver was encountered during routine dissections in our laboratory. The muscle originated from the deep transverse fascia of the leg, covering flexor digitorum longus, flexor hallucis longus, and tibialis posterior muscles, and additionally from some… (More)
