To investigate the prefrontal hemodynamic response during a cognitive task in childhood anorexia nervosa (AN), we measured regional cerebral blood volume changes in terms of changes in hemoglobin concentrations [Hb], using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Sixteen females with AN (mean age 14.2 years old) and 12 age-matched healthy female control subjects(More)
To evaluate the development of visual cognitive function in childhood, we examined exploratory eye movements in 84 healthy subjects viewing picture-based stimuli. Age-defined groups included 4- to 6-year-olds, 7-year-olds, 10-year-olds, 14-year-olds, 16-year-olds, and adults. In each group, 7 subjects were male and 7 were female. Exploratory eye movements,(More)
We present a method to localize intraoperative target vessel bifurcations under bones for ultrasound (US) image-guided catheter interventions. A catheter path is recorded to acquire skeletons for the target vessel bifurcations that cannot be imaged by intraoperative US. The catheter path is combined with the centerlines of the three-dimensional (3D) US(More)
BACKGROUND Cortisol awakening response (CAR) as an indicator of psychological stress and related physical and psychiatric diseases has attracted growing attention from researchers. Although CAR changes have been investigated extensively in children with behavioral and psychiatric disorders, the association between CAR and conventional psychometric scales(More)

We reported the results of the 3-week summer treatment program (STP) for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in 2006. The STP was based on methods established by Professor Pelham in Buffalo, NY and has been used in a number of studies and at a number of sites in the U.S. This is the first STP outside North America. Thirty-six(More)
Autosomal dominant hyper-IgE syndrome (AD-HIES) is included among primary immunodeficiencies, and results from heterozygous mutations in the signal transduction and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) gene. AD-HIES leads to impaired Th17 cell differentiation and IL-17 production, and is associated with increased susceptibility to bacteria and fungi. It was(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous eye-tracking studies using an eye mark recorder have reported that disturbances in exploratory eye movements in adult schizophrenic patients are associated with social functioning. The current study sought to determine whether exploratory eye-movement disturbances are present in children with Asperger's syndrome (AS) compared with(More)
BACKGROUND To improve the accuracy of catheter navigation, it is important to develop a method to predict shifts of carotid artery (CA) bifurcations caused by intraoperative deformation. An important factor affecting the accuracy of electromagnetic maxillofacial catheter navigation systems is CA deformations. We aimed to assess CA deformation in different(More)
We describe a 15-year-old boy with learning difficulties and eyelid myoclonia with absences (EMA). Myoclonic jerks of the extremities and trunk occurred 9 years before the onset of EMA, when the patient was 6. At that time, we diagnosed him with cryptogenic myoclonic epilepsy of early childhood, because he manifested mainly myoclonic jerks with generalized(More)
A six-year-old girl living in a residential care facility because of previous sexual abuse at home showed intractable seizures with epileptic discharges on interictal EEG. The features of the attacks were sudden impaired consciousness, only in daytime while eating, studying, and walking, with no motor acts and continuing for several minutes to one hour. She(More)
