We present a new method to determine contraction kernels for the construction of graph pyramids. The new method works with undirected graphs and yields a reduction factor of at least 2.0. This means that with our method the number of vertices in the subgraph induced by any set of contractible edges is reduced to half or less by a single parallel(More)
Two patients developed either blepharospasm or blepharospasm-oromandibular dystonia following chronic therapy with chlorpromazine, haloperidol, or thioridazine. In one patient, appearance of the movement disorder was associated with neuroleptic withdrawal, and in the other patient, the movement disorder began while neuroleptic therapy continued. Because of(More)
Progressive difficulty in handwriting due to jerking movements precipitated by the act of writing beginning between the ages of 8 to 54 is reported in six patients. There was no rest tremor, but three had mild postural tremor. Specific muscle activity (especially pronation of the wrist or abduction of the fingers) elicited the tremors that persisted as long(More)
Asterixis was observed in five parkinsonian patients who were taking levodopa. A prospective study revealed that 4 of 55 consecutive patients had asterixis. Liver and metabolic functions were normal in all patients. Asterixis always occurred as part of a toxic confusional state superimposed on a parkinsonian state associated with some dementia. Insomnia,(More)
We evaluated findings in 14 patients with myotonic dystrophy (MD) using magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and compared them with those in age-matched controls with headache. There was an increased incidence of ventriculomegaly and a lumpy and/or thick pattern of periventricular hyperintensity in patients with MD as compared with the age-matched(More)
We present two new methods to determine contraction kernels for the construction of graph pyramids. The first method is restricted to undirected graphs and yields a reduction factor of at least £ ¥ ¤ § ¦. This means that with our method the number of vertices in the subgraph induced by any set of contractible edges is reduced to half or less by a single(More)
