Diagnosis of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLF), a group of recessively inherited neurolipidoses, must rely on clinical as well as light and electron microscopic histopathologic findings, as a precise biochemical defect has not yet been identified. We have studied the eyes from two patients with the late infantile and juvenile forms of the disease.(More)
The failure of homophobia scales to consider the normative assumptions of religious communities may result in findings that are less useful in addressing this problem. In this study, 155 undergraduate students at a Christian university were surveyed, separately assessing attitudes toward celibate versus sexually active homosexual men and women. Results of(More)
Metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) is a fatal, autosomal recessive lysosomal enzymopathy characterized by demyelination and deposits of metachromatic granules in the central and peripheral nervous systems [1, 12, 14]. Deficient activity of lysosomal arylsulfatase A (cerebroside sulfatase) leads to the accumulation of galactocerebroside-l-sulfate, a major(More)
The ocular histopathological and ultrastructural features of fucosidosis in a man who survived to the age of 25 years are reported. Virtually all of the cells of the eye contained cytoplasmic, membrane-bound, and confluent areas of fibrillogranular and multilaminated material. The most striking accumulations were present within the endothelial cells lining(More)
Argumentation theory studies the fundamental mechanism humans use in argumentation and explores ways to implement this mechanism on computers. Dung's approach, presented in [9], is a unifying framework which has played an influential role on argumentation research. In this paper, we show that, a logic programming semantics, called MM r , can be used to(More)
