Prevalence of anencephaly in the region of Rijeka, Croatia

It is suggested that the setting of obligatory reporting of all congenital malformations would be the first step toward this practice in Croatia, as well as in other developing countries.

Aerodigestive and communicative behaviors in anencephalic and hydranencephalic infants

More data pairing behavior and pathology is recommended, both in the interest of understanding the relationship between neural structures and functions, and to provide clinicians with more information about a patient's signs and symptoms.

The newborn infant: a missing stage in developmental psychology

Although neonatology, the study of the newborn, is well established in medical science, psychological research on the newborn is relatively scarce. Can we justify this period as a distinct stage of

A video polysomnographic study of spontaneous smiling during sleep in newborns

Smiling occurs in healthy newborns, almost exclusively in active sleep and is associated with grouped rapid eye movements, and in infants with major congenital abnormalities, smiling is abolished only when nearly all of the cerebral cortex is absent.

From Imitation to Conversation: The First Dialogues with Human Neonates.

Newborn infants not only imitate but also initiate previously imitated gestures, and are able to participate in overlapping imitation–initiation communicative cycles, which may enable them to have long-lasting intimate interactions much before language develops.

The facial motor system

The autonomic nervous system and the brainstem: A fundamental role or the background actors for consciousness generation? Hypothesis, evidence, and future directions for rehabilitation and theoretical approaches

Theories trying to explain the emergence of consciousness as the result of different progressive changes in the elaboration of information during brain processing, giving particular attention to the thalamocortical system are proposed.



Anencephalus: a changing sex ratio.

The present study of the sex ratio of anencephalus in the United Kingdom has been undertaken in the hope that it might give some insight into the nature of relationships between stillbirths and surviving infants.

Spontaneous Rem Behaviors in a Microcephalic Infant

A microcephalic human newborn exhibited a repertoire of spontaneous REM behaviors, including REM smiling, at rates characteristic of a normal newborn comparison group, supporting a tentative conclusion that the observed spontaneousREM behaviors are mediated through the brain stem and that cerebral structures are not necessary for this mediation.

A family study of major central nervous system malformations in South Wales.

This family study is based on an attempt to identify all patients with spina bifida cystica, anencephaly, and congenital hydrocephalus born between the years 1956 and 1962 inclusive in the mining valleys of Monmouthshire, up to and including the Neath valley, and in the Vale of Glamorgan.
