OBJECTIVE The human γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA)γ2R43Q (R43Q) mutation is associated with genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures. R43Q mice in the C57Bl/6J background do not display spontaneous seizures, but are significantly more susceptible to hyperthermic seizures, providing a model with enhanced seizure susceptibility without the confounding(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to determine if younger and older listeners with normal hearing who differ on working memory span perform differently on speech recognition tests in noise. Older adults typically exhibit poorer speech recognition scores in noise than younger adults, which is attributed primarily to poorer hearing sensitivity and more limited(More)
Data obtained from routine sources showed that from 1971 to 1982 the birth prevalences of spina bifida and anencephaly in Scotland fell. When known terminations after routine alpha fetoprotein screening were added to total births the adjusted birth prevalence could be calculated. In 1974-82 this fell by 40% for spina bifida (3 X 0-1 X 8) and 36% for(More)
The hearing of 24 normal hearing children ranging in age from 18 to 32 months was tested by TROCA and peep-show, two operant conditioning technique differing only in the type of reward. Children between 18 and 24 months consistently exhibited poorer thresholds (lowest response levels) than children between 25 and 32 months. The older children required fewer(More)
BACKGROUND There are few outcomes experienced by children receiving care in the Emergency Department (ED) that are amenable to measuring for the purposes of assessing of quality of care. The purpose of this study was to develop, test, and validate a new implicit review instrument that measures quality of care delivered to children in EDs. METHODS We(More)
