Introduction ICT can be used to support learning in many different ways in schools. This extends beyond individual pupils' use of learning software on a computer to include, among other things, interactive presentations using touch sensitive whiteboards, specialist devices like data loggers for the collection of data in science lessons, email based(More)
OBJECTIVE Motor and cognitive function were compared in patients with Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's disease, or Alzheimer's disease, to identify features that may be clinically useful in differentiating Lewy body dementia from Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. METHODS A range of neuropsychological function and extrapyrimidal signs (EPS) was(More)
AIMS A diffuse variant of dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumour (dDNT) has previously been described, which although composed of oligodendroglia-like cells (OLC), astrocytes and mature neurones, lacks the multinodularity and 'specific component' of typical DNT. The dDNT poses a significant challenge to the neuropathologist. This study was undertaken to(More)
Men with liver disease are hypogonadal and feminized. European workers consider the liver disease itself to be the major factor but American workers blame alcohol consumption. We studied sexual dysfunction and sex hormones in three matched groups of men; controls (n = 22), those with alcoholic liver disease (n = 21), and those with non-alcoholic liver(More)
Alcohol abuse leads to impotence, infertility, and feminisation. Patients with chronic alcoholism may have impaired hypothalamic-pituitary function. The release of luteinising hormone was investigated in men with alcoholic cirrhosis with and without hypogonadism and controls. Blood was sampled every 15 minutes for six or eight hours and luteinising hormone(More)
Sex hormone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) levels were measured in the plasma of postmenopausal women with non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis (n = 24) and compared with levels in matched controls (n = 21). Plasma oestradiol was elevated: 80 vs 30 pmol/l, P less than 0.005 (median values). Plasma SHBG was elevated, 15 vs 10 mg/dl, P less than 0.001.(More)
The role of fibreoptic endoscopy in the investigation of dysphagia in an elderly population was investigated. Three hundred and sixty-five subjects were studied. Two hundred and sixty subjects had abnormalities with extra oesophageal disease accounting for symptoms in a substantial minority. Endoscopy was safe, offered the advantage of immediate therapy and(More)
