Using a protocol designed to eliminate observer bias, we studied the relationship of duration of diabetes, age, blood glucose control, and the presence of retinopathy to motor nerve conduction velocity in patients with juvenile-onset diabetes of short duration. Conduction velocities for both the ulnar and peroneal nerves were significantly slower in the(More)
In this paper, we examine computational thinking and its connections to critical thinking from the perspective of in- formatics. We developed an introductory course for students in our College of Informatics, which includes majors rang- ing from journalism to computer science. The course cov- ered a set of principles of informatics, using both lectures and(More)
A 23-month-old boy with progressive muscle weakness and severe cardiomyopathy was found to have oil red O positive vacuoles predominantly in type 1 muscle fibers. Serum carnitine was normal, but muscle carnitine content was decreased. Both parents were clinically normal, but the muscle carnitine level was low in the father. Despite oral treatment with(More)
Rett syndrome is a progressive neurologic condition, affecting only girls and characterized by acquired microcephaly, dementia, seizures, autistic behavior, spontaneous hyperventilation, spasticity, hyperreflexia and a peculiar characteristic stereotypic movement disorder. A review of 35 EEGs (obtained over 0-8.5 years of follow-up) in 9 such patients(More)
Two brothers had nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mental retardation, and vacuolar myopathy, and their mother died of cardiopathy at age 31. Seven families with this syndrome have been described; heredity appears to be X-linked dominant or autosomal dominant, with different expressivity in males and females. The biochemical cause of this(More)
