We show that five individuals with congenital prosopagnosia (CP) are impaired at face recognition and discrimination and do not exhibit the normal superiority for upright over inverted faces despite intact visual acuity, low-level vision and intelligence, and in the absence of any obvious neural concomitant. Interestingly, the deficit is not limited to(More)
Studies of the perceptual performance of individuals with autism have focused, to a large extent, on two domains of visual behavior, one associated with face processing and the other associated with global or holistic processing. Whether autistic individuals differ from neurotypical individuals in these domains is debatable and, moreover, the relationship(More)
The effect of interferon on the biochemical properties and the maturation process of intracellular viral particles isolated from the cytoplasmic fraction of NIH/3T3 cells chronically infected with Moloney murine leukemia virus was investigated. By labeling these virions with either [35S]methionine or [3H]glucosamine, we demonstrated that they contain the(More)
Using transmission electron microscopy, we demonstrate in this study the existence of intracellular Moloney murine leukemia virus particles in cytoplasmic vacuoles of chronically infected NIH/3T3 cells. Interferon (IFN) treatment for 48 h resulted in a 3-fold higher accumulation of these vacuolar virions. Intracellular virions and their accumulation in(More)
Legal responsibility for the mentally ill has long been a dilemma. Public opinion with regard to the current law, which holds that the mentally ill are not responsible for their actions, is divided. We assessed 30 cases of psychiatric patients committed by court order following a criminal act. No relation was found between the nature of the transgression(More)
