The authors present the clinical, radiological, and pathological features of a malignant intracerebral nerve sheath tumor that occurred in the right parietooccipital lobe of a 4-year-old girl. Computerized tomography scanning and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a 5x5x4-cm multiloculated mass with considerable enhancement of the irregularly shaped(More)
It has been argued whether the facial expression is recognized categorically or dimensionally. We investigated this issue using three sets of morphed photographic facial images (happiness to anger, surprise, and sadness). Our interest is whether the experimental data of categorical perception can be explained by the dimensional point of view. Experiment 1(More)
The authors report a 57-year-old man with an ossified and calcified epidural hematoma found incidentally 40 years after incurring a severe head injury. Since the introduction of computed tomography (CT) scan, few such cases have been described in the literature. A characteristic intracranial "double-outlined" contour on plain skull x-ray films and CT scans(More)
One hundred twenty-four follow-up scans were performed on 24 patients who had had posttraumatic subdural collections of low density. Of the 24 patients, 6 developed chronic subdural hematomas. Six other subdural collections showed a temporary increase in attenuation but eventually resolved. The remaining 12 subdural collections resolved without apparent(More)
Rats with 9L brain tumors received intraperitoneal injections of iododeoxyuridine (IUdR) and bromodeoxyuridine (BUdR) to estimate the duration of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis phase (Ts) and the potential doubling time (Tp) of individual tumors. Different sequences and intervals (2 or 3 hours) of IUdR and BUdR administration were evaluated.(More)
Many studies have analyzed the "synchronic" correlation of properties, i.e., the correlation of properties in the same period, between authors and their co-authors. However, the "diachronic" correlation of properties, i.e., the correlation between their subsequent and precedent activity, has not yet been sufficiently studied using quantitative methods. This(More)
The authors conducted a multiinstitutional phase II study to establish a postsurgical combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy regimen for patients with primary germ cell tumors of the brain. After surgical debulking of the tumor and histological verification, patients were divided into three therapeutic groups: good prognosis, intermediate prognosis,(More)
Perceptual processing of emotional facial expressions occurs very quickly, even without awareness. To determine whether the fast processing of facial expressions is categorical, we studied temporal characteristics of categorical perception (CP) of facial expressions. We investigated the effect of shortening stimulus duration on participant performance with(More)
AIMS Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) manifest aggressive clinical behaviour and have poor prognosis. Although constitutive activation of the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) pathway has been documented, knowledge about the genetic alterations leading to the impairment of the NF-κB pathway in PCNSLs is still limited. This study was aimed to unravel(More)
OBJECTIVE A derivative of chloroethylnitrosoureas, 1-(4-amino-2-methyl-5-pyrimidinyl)methyl-3-(2-chloroethyl)-3-nitrosourea (ACNU), is a drug of choice for the chemotherapy of human malignant brain tumors. However, the cytocidal effect of ACNU is effectively repressed through repair of ACNU-mediated deoxyribonucleic acid lesions by(More)
