BACKGROUND A comprehensive characterisation of grey and white matter changes in progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), the second most common extrapyramidal syndrome after Parkinson disease, is still not available. OBJECTIVE To evaluate grey and white matter changes in mild PSP patients by voxel based morphometry (VBM) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI),(More)
UNLABELLED Long Latency Auditory Evoked Potentials can be used to monitor changes in the Central Auditory Nervous System after Auditory Training. AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of Auditory Training in children with (Central) Auditory Processing Disorder, comparing behavioral and electrophysiological findings before and after(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the middle latency response (MLR) characteristics (latency and amplitude) in children with (central) auditory processing disorder [(C)APD], categorized as such by their performance on the central auditory test battery, and the effects of these characteristics after auditory training. Thirty children with (C)APD, 8(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) To determine the feasibility of the use of a modified postural control test under altered sensory conditions in children over 8 years of age, and (2) to assess how deaf children use sensory information for postural control when they have normal or abnormal vestibular responses, and if hearing input from a unilateral cochlear implant, changes(More)
Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) examined changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) induced by passive auditory single-word stimulation. A split-dose SPECT technique was used between resting and activated states, in which a smaller amount of ligand (99m technetium hexamethyl propyleneamine oxide, HMPAO) was given with the first scan,(More)
– The mentoring relationship is an important and crucial aspect in the academic and professional development of both mentor and protégé. Although the characteristics of positive mentoring relationships have been identified, there is little prior research in assessing the relationship between undergraduate researchers and their graduate student mentors. We(More)
—Our general education course in digital information technology draws many students from academic disciplines outside science and mathematics. These students often struggle with the relevance of the course topics. To promote student motivation, we are modifying the course to better engage the students in the course topics via a method we term diversity(More)
