Two groups of children who were slow in expressive language development (SELD) at age 2 and a matched group of toddlers with normal language were re-evaluated at age 4. Assessment included measures of productive syntactic skills in spontaneous speech and narrative abilities in a standard story retelling task. Four-year-olds who continued to perform below(More)
Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has significantly increased life expectancy of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive population. Nevertheless, the average lifespan of HIV-patients remains shorter compared to uninfected individuals. Immunosenescence, a current explanation for this difference invokes heavily on viral stimulus despite(More)
Debrisoquine and its primary metabolite, 4-hydroxydebrisoquine, were measured in the urine of 94 volunteers after a single oral dose of 10 mg debrisoquine. The ratio between excreted debrisoquine and its metabolite was bimorphically distributed in the study population. Family studies supported the view that alicyclic 4-hydroxylation of debrisoquine is(More)
Cell loss in the hippocampal formation is a common event in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. The belief that dentate granule neurons are relatively resistant to excitotoxic injury has recently been challenged both, in epileptic patients and in animal models of temporal lobe epilepsy. The nature of dentate granule cell damage in epilepsy has been(More)
Alert correlation systems are post-processing modules that enable intrusion analysts to find important alerts and filter false posi-tives efficiently from the output of Intrusion Detection Systems. Typically , however, these modules require high levels of human involvement in creating the system and/or maintaining it, as patterns of attacks change as often(More)
A central feature of the osteoarthritic disease process involves erosive destruction of the articular cartilage extracellular matrix (ECM) on the surfaces of diarthrotic joints. The resultant loss of joint function makes studies on mechanisms underlying ECM degradation critical for treatment of the disease and prevention of disability. Candidate pathways to(More)
An autoassociator is a feedforward neural network that has the same number of input and output units. The goal of the autoassociator is very simple; to reconstruct its input at the output layer. Despite their simplicity, autoassociators have previously been shown to be quite successful on the task of Novelty Detection applied to industrial and military(More)
Aging is a universal biological process that afflicts every creature on this planet. To date, we have a very poor understanding of what actually causes this degeneration. A commonly held view is that aging is the result of damage accumulation over a lifetime. However, research has shown that aging is not only the result of wear and tear in the organism, but(More)
