The primary neuroaxonal dystrophies (NAD), which include infantile NAD and Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome (HSS), are characterized by dystrophic terminal axons and axonal swellings. Lewy bodies have been found in some cases. In Parkinson disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Lewy bodies and neurites display prominent alpha-synuclein(More)
Recombinant DNA technology has provided a vast new source of DNA markers displaying heritable sequence variation in humans. These markers can be used in family studies to identify the chromosomal location of defective genes causing nervous system disorders. The discovery of a DNA marker linked to Huntington's disease has opened new avenues of research into(More)
The clinical and neuropathological features in the P301L tauopathy have been described in several kindreds. In this study, we present findings in two previously unreported patients, evaluated both genetically, neuropathologically, and with multiparametric confocal immunofluorescence. The patients were female, with age 65 and 75 years old, respectively. Both(More)
Computational properties of networks of synchronous groups of spiking neurons. publishes original articles on the function of the nervous system. It is published 12 times a year (monthly) Journal of Neurophysiology
Little is known about the cellular and genetic changes that occur in human astrocytomas following radiation therapy (RT). Experimental studies would suggest that early effects include induction of p53 and p21 expression, cell cycle arrest, and selection of tumor cells with molecular changes that correlate with radiation resistance. Unfortunately, tissue(More)
To test the hypothesis that interfamily variability in Huntington's Disease (HD) is due to mutation at different loci, linkage analysis was undertaken in two large HD kindreds that differed in ethnicity, age-at-onset, and neurologic and psychiatric features. Both families showed linkage of the HD locus to the G8 probe. Several recombinants were documented(More)

Silicon and germanium exhibit complete solid solubility for all binary concentrations. However, the growth of single crystalline SiGe alloys by bulk growth processes is hindered by the relatively wide separation of the solidus and liquidus lines. Previous research has yielded single crystals grown by the Czochralski method which are limited to only a few(More)
Immunocytochemical characteristics of myosin have been demonstrated directly in normal and cross-reinnervated skeletal muscle fibers whose physiological properties have been defined. Fibers belonging to individual motor units were identified by the glycogen-depletion method, which permits correlation of cytochemical and physiological data on the same(More)
A search for the defective gene causing torsion dystonia has been carried out in a family manifesting an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance of this movement disorder. Complete neurologic examination and establishment of lymphoblast lines have been carried out for over 50 members. Linkage analysis, using cloned DNA sequences and restriction fragment(More)
