OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate the visual perception difference between ADHD children with and without sensory processing disorder, and the relationship between sensory processing and visual perception of the children with ADHD. METHODS Participants were 47 outpatients, aged 6-8 years, diagnosed with ADHD. After excluding those(More)
Complex behaviors, such as learning and memory, are associated with rapid changes in gene expression of neurons and subsequent formation of new synaptic connections. However, how external signals are processed to drive specific changes in gene expression is largely unknown. We found that the genome organizer protein Satb1 is highly expressed in mature(More)
Microcephaly and macrocephaly are overrepresented in individuals with autism and are thought to be disease-related risk factors or endophenotypes. Analysis of DNA microarray results from a family with a low functioning autistic child determined that the proband and two additional unaffected family members who carry a rare inherited 760 kb duplication of(More)
The cholinoceptive system in the hypothalamus, in particular in the arcuate nucleus (ARC), plays a role in regulating food intake. Neurons in the ARC contain multiple neuropeptides, amines, and neurotransmitters. To study molecular and neurochemical heterogeneity of ARC neurons, we combine single-cell qRT-PCR and single-cell whole transcriptome(More)
PURPOSE To assess the accuracy of 3 corneal horizontal meridian marking techniques using the iTrace Surgical Workstation in preoperative assessment for toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea. DESIGN Prospective comparative observational study. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To investigate associations between serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor antibody (TRAb) levels and Graves' orbitopathy (GO) activity/severity in chronic-stage GO and compare the performance of two newly-developed TRAb assays (third-generation TSH-binding inhibition immunoglobulin [TBII] assay versus Mc4 thyroid-stimulating(More)
Socket contracture is one of the most common and difficult problems in anophthalmic patients. This study intended to evaluate postoperative outcomes of anophthalmic socket reconstruction using an autologous buccal mucosa graft in patients with socket contracture. Medical records and photographs of 44 anophthalmic patients who underwent socket reconstruction(More)
PURPOSE To compare the astigmatic power of toric intraocular lenses (IOLs) obtained from the AcrySof, TECNIS, and iTrace toric calculator in patients with preoperative with-the-rule (WTR) or against-the-rule (ATR) corneal astigmatism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty eyes with cataract and corneal astigmatism greater than 0.75 diopters were enrolled in each(More)
Copy number variants (CNVs) at the Breakpoint 1 to Breakpoint 2 region at 15q11.2 (BP1-2) are associated with language-related difficulties and increased risk for developmental disorders in which language is compromised. Towards underlying mechanisms, we investigated relationships between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across the region and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To investigate the acute effect of ethanol consumption on subfoveal choroidal thickness. METHODS This prospective interventional study included the right eyes of 30 healthy subjects (30 eyes). Ethanol (1.0 g/kg) was administered orally on the first visit. A matching volume of water was administered orally on the second visit. Oral(More)
