The aim of this investigation was the assessment of normal facial movements using the objective computer-assisted OSCAR method. Computerized black-and-white video images of 20 healthy volunteers were recorded with the face at rest, maximal wrinkling of the forehead, forced eye closure, and forced smiling. The mean regional symmetry index was found to be 91%(More)
We evaluated various fast MR sequences for obtaining anatomical and dynamic functional information during deglutition. Seven healthy volunteers underwent MRI of the oropharynx during swallowing of an oral positive-contrast agent. Single-slice imaging was performed in the median sagittal plane while subjects were in a supine position. Twenty serial images(More)
Global warming will lead to earlier beginnings and prolongation of growing seasons in temperate regions and will have pronounced effects on phenology and life-history adaptation in many species. These changes were not easy to simulate for actual phenologies because of the rudimentary temporal (season) and spatial (regional) resolution of climate model(More)
The management of cervical paragangliomas (PGs) depends on their specific type and their relation to adjacent vessels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and color duplex sonography (CDS) to classify PGs according to topography and vascularization. Sixteen patients harboring 22 PGs were studied(More)
Transient hearing decrease following loss of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has been reported in patients undergoing lumbar puncture, spinal anesthesia, myelography, and/or different neurosurgical interventions. The authors present the first well-documented case of a patient with persistent bilateral low-frequency sensorineural hearing loss after shunt placement(More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Earth System Dynamics (ESD). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ESD if available. Abstract As a consequence of current and projected climate change in temperate regions of Europe, agricultural pests and diseases are expected to occur more frequently and possibly to extend to(More)
