Five children with epilepsy with "continuous spike-waves during slow sleep" (CSWS) are reported. The main clinical features of CSWS include (a) onset between 5 and 7 years of age, (b) the occurrence of several types of seizure (i.e., partial motor, generalized motor, and atypical absence), and (c) the presence of language disturbances and abnormal behavior(More)
We studied the electrically and mechanically elicited blink reflexes in 2 groups of subjects, i.e., 237 newborn infants, 25-41 weeks of conceptional age, and 74 children, 1 month-12 years of age. In infants after 25 weeks of conceptional age we could usually induce the early response (R1) and ipsilateral late response (R2), while the contralateral late(More)
The developmental changes of the ipsilateral and contralateral auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) were studied in 105 normal infants and children. In both ipsilateral and contralateral recordings, the peak and interpeak latencies shortened with increasing age, while the amplitudes of wave V had a tendency to become higher. Contralateral ABR amplitudes were(More)
We studied a case of Lesch-Nyhan syndrome with delayed onset of self-mutilation. Athetotic cerebral palsy and mental retardation were diagnosed at 1 year old, but the disease was not suspected until age 8 years when he began biting his lips and fingers. There was no obvious alteration of catecholamine in urine and CSF. We attempted to induce a series of(More)
The component structure of a generic N=1/2 supersymmetric Non-Linear Sigma-Model (NLSM) defined in the four-dimensional (Euclidean) Non-Anti-Commutative (NAC) superspace is investigated in detail. The most general NLSM is described in terms of arbitrary Kähler potential, and chiral and anti-chiral superpotentials. The case of a single chiral superfield(More)
We studied a nilpotent Non-Anti-Commutative (NAC) deformation of the effective superpotentials in supersymmetric gauge theories, caused by a constant self-dual graviphoton background. We derived the simple non-perturbative formula applicable to any NAC (star) deformed chiral superpotential. It is remarkable that the deformed superpotential is always(More)
We find the Goldstino action descending from the N=1 Goldstone-Maxwell super-field action associated with the spontaneous partial supersymmetry breaking, N=2 to N=1, in superspace. The new Goldstino action has higher (second-order) space-time derivatives, while it can be most compactly described as a solution to the simple recursive relation. Our action(More)
The blink reflex and its recovery curve were studied in 12 patients with neurologic and psychiatric disorders, i.e., juvenile Parkinson's disease (case 1), Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome (case 2), anorexia nervosa (case 3), mild developmental delay (cases 4 and 5), a meningomyelocele with winking spasms (case 6), Parkinson's disease (cases 7-10) and OPCA(More)
