Video EEG monitoring for 1-2 hours was performed on 100 outpatients (57 females and 43 males) with refractory seizures or frequent paroxysmal events. Patients' ages ranged from 8 days to 67 years (mean age 21). At least one clinical seizure or paroxysmal event was observed in 66 patients; 24 of these patients had subtle seizures that would be difficult to… (More)
We investigate whether it is physically possible to build starships or power plants using the Hawking radiation of an artificial black hole as a power source. The proposal seems to be at the edge of possibility, but quantum gravity effects could change the picture.
The worldwide incidence of traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is approximated at 180,000 new cases per year. Experiments using nonhuman primates (NHP) are often used to replicate the human condition in order to advance the understanding of SCI and to assist in the development of new treatments. Experimental spinal cord lesions in NHP have been created by a… (More)
We study a flat spacetime with one compact spatial dimension and dispute the claim of Bansal, Laing, and Sriharan that a local experiment can determine whether or not an inertial observer is " privileged " in this spacetime.

Brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) recording was used to screen presymptomatically the hearing of 200 neonates treated with ampicillin (100 mg/kg daily) and gentamicin sulfate (5 mg/kg daily). The study included 130 male and 70 female neonates; post-conceptional age ranged from 34 to 57 weeks (mean 42.36 weeks). We divided neonates into 2 groups… (More)
