The neuropsychological and clinical histories of three male siblings affected by pyridoxine-dependent seizures with known homozygous antiquitin mutations are presented. Neuropsychological evaluation is reported from when the siblings were 11, 9, and 7 years of age. Two of the siblings had received early pyridoxine treatment (antenatal, 2-4 wks into(More)
This study investigated the immediate effects of stimulant medication (methylphenidate) on cognitive attention processes in children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Thirteen males and two females (mean age 9 y 5 mo, SD 18.3 mo) with a diagnosis of ADHD and who were to be prescribed methylphenidate were assessed twice on one day with(More)
Reorganization of eloquent cortex enables rescue of language functions in patients who sustain brain injury. Individuals with left-sided, early-onset focal epilepsy often show atypical (i.e. bilateral or right-sided) language dominance. Surprisingly, many patients fail to show such interhemispheric shift of language despite having major epileptogenic(More)
We systematically compared fMRI results for covert (silent) and overt (spoken) versions of a language task in a representative sample of children with lesional focal epilepsy being considered for neurosurgical treatment (N=38, aged 6-17 years). The overt task was advantageous for presurgical fMRI assessments of language; it produced higher quality scans,(More)
The consumption of 500 ml milk following muscle damaging exercise can attenuate decreases in muscle functional capacity and increases in markers of muscle damage and soreness in males. There has been no similar research in female participants. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of milk consumption on exercise-induced muscle(More)
BACKGROUND Paranoid delusions are associated with abnormal attributions and abnormal beliefs about the self. Some researchers have also reported an association between paranoid beliefs and abnormal attachment representations. SAMPLING AND METHODS Perceptions of relationships with the family of origin were measured in 14 currently ill paranoid patients, 9(More)
Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a sporadic disorder characterized by naevus (port wine stain), a pial angioma, and glaucoma. The angioma comprises abnormal tortuous vessels on the leptomeninges with underlying brain gliosis, calcification, and atrophy. The cerebral angioma is commonly unilateral but may be bilateral. Hemiplegia usually follows recurrent(More)
Childhood memory disorders have received increasing empirical investigation over recent years and reviews of the dissociations within the developmental memory system are now available. However, there are few descriptions within the literature of children's consequent behavioural and learning difficulties within an educational context. This paper reviews the(More)
Despite increasing research into the severe effects of childhood memory disorders, there is currently a paucity of evidence available to inform the design of appropriate rehabilitation strategies. Indeed, within the paediatric literature there is no model that links specific memory disorders with hypotheses for appropriate rehabilitation strategies. This(More)
