We devised a three-dimensional method for estimation of cerebral development and myelination which measures cerebral volume using MRI. Accuracy of the system was estimated using cadaver brains. The mean percentage error in the calculated volumes compared with the real volumes was 2.33%, range 0.00-5.33%. We applied the method to the volume of both cerebral(More)
The voltage-gated sodium channel type II alpha polypeptide gene (SCN2A) R188W mutation with channel dysfunction was recently identified in a patient with febrile and afebrile seizures. A possible association between SCN2A R19K polymorphism and febrile seizures (FS) associated with afebrile seizures including generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus(More)
We reported a case of an eight-year-old boy with CEOP. His parents and sibling were in good health. There was no family history of epileptic and neurological disease. He had his first attack of unconsciousness with fixation of eye movement for a few minutes at the age of 7 years. After six months, he experienced attacks of vomiting followed by loss of(More)
The mechanism of periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) still remains unclear, although it has been the subject of a number of theories. We investigated the relationship between the level consciousness and PLEDs in order to clarify both the clinical significance and the mechanism of PLEDs. We studied two neonates and two infants with acute(More)
