A young adult subject with congenital absence of the left temporal lobe received extensive behavioral and electrophysiologic tests to identify deficits in central auditory processing. Tests included the dichotic digits, staggered spondaic words (SSW), synthetic sentence identification with ipsilateral (SSI-ICM) and contralateral (SSI-CCM) competing(More)
The myelograms of 60 acutely injured patients were reviewed. Positive contrast material (Pantopaque) was preferred in cervical and thoracic trauma manifesting bony deformity, in cervical trauma without bony deformity (in the prone position), in delineating the thoracic spinal cord in the frontal projection, and in lumbar spinal injuries. Negative contrast(More)
