Callosal and cortical contribution to procedural learning. (1/203)

Acallosal and callosotomized subjects usually show impairments on tasks requiring bilateral interdependent motor control. However, few studies have assessed the ability of these subjects to learn a skill that requires the simultaneous contribution of each hemisphere in its acquisition. The present study examined whether acallosal and callosotomized subjects could learn a visuomotor skill that involved a motor control from either both or a single hemisphere. Eleven adult patients, six acallosal and five callosotomized, participated in this study. Seven of these patients had epileptic foci located in the frontal and/or temporal areas and one of the acallosal patients showed bilateral prefrontal atrophy following surgical removal of an orbitofrontal cyst. The performance of the experimental subjects was compared with that of 11 matched control subjects, on a modified version of a serial reaction time task developed by Nissen and Bullemer (Cogn Psychol 1987; 19: 1-32). This skill acquisition task involved bimanual or unimanual key-pressing responses to a sequence of 10 visual stimuli that was repeated 160 times. A declarative memory task was then performed to assess explicit knowledge of the sequence. None of the experimental subjects learned the task in the bimanual condition. Patients with frontal epileptic foci or orbitofrontal damage also failed to learn the task in the unimanual condition when they were using the hand contralateral to the damaged hemisphere. All other subjects, including the acallosal and callosotomized patients with temporal foci, learned the visuomotor skill as well as their controls in the unimanual condition. In spite of the absence of transfer and interhemispheric integration of procedural learning, some of the acallosal and callosotomized patients were able to learn the sequence explicitly. These findings indicate that the corpus callosum and the frontal cortical areas are important for procedural learning of a visuomotor skill. They also confirm the dissociation described by Squire (Science 1986; 232: 1612-9 and J Cogn Neurosci 1992; 4: 232-43) between the declarative and procedural memory systems and extend this dissociation to processes involving simultaneous bihemispheric co-operation.  (+info)

Abnormalities in neuronal process extension, hippocampal development, and the ventricular system of L1 knockout mice. (2/203)

In humans, mutations in the L1 cell adhesion molecule are associated with a neurological syndrome termed CRASH, which includes corpus callosum agenesis, mental retardation, adducted thumbs, spasticity, and hydrocephalus. A mouse model with a null mutation in the L1 gene (Cohen et al., 1997) was analyzed for brain abnormalities by Nissl and Golgi staining and immunocytochemistry. In the motor, somatosensory, and visual cortex, many pyramidal neurons in layer V exhibited undulating apical dendrites that did not reach layer I. The hippocampus of L1 mutant mice was smaller than normal, with fewer pyramidal and granule cells. The corpus callosum of L1-minus mice was reduced in size because of the failure of many callosal axons to cross the midline. Enlarged ventricles and septal abnormalities were also features of the mutant mouse brain. Immunoperoxidase staining showed that L1 was abundant in developing neurons at embryonic day 18 (E18) in wild-type cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and corpus callosum and then declined to low levels with maturation. In the E18 cortex, L1 colocalized with microtubule-associated protein 2, a marker of dendrites and somata. These new findings suggest new roles for L1 in the mechanism of cortical dendrite differentiation, as well as in guidance of callosal axons and regulation of hippocampal development. The phenotype of the L1 mutant mouse indicates that it is a potentially valuable model for the human CRASH syndrome.  (+info)

Reduction cranioplasty for macrocephaly. Two case reports. (3/203)

Multi-stage reduction cranioplasty was performed on two children with severe macrocephaly secondary to hydrocephalus. One patient underwent a four-stage operation, and the other underwent a two-stage operation. The postoperative course of both patients was uneventful. Reduction cranioplasty improved quality of life for both patients, and good cosmetic results were achieved. Reduction cranioplasty is effective for the treatment of macrocephaly, and multi-stage surgery can reduce the associated risks.  (+info)

Dissociation of the pathways mediating ipsilateral and contralateral motor-evoked potentials in human hand and arm muscles. (4/203)

1. Growing evidence points toward involvement of the human motor cortex in the control of the ipsilateral hand. We used focal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to examine the pathways of these ipsilateral motor effects. 2. Ipsilateral motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) were obtained in hand and arm muscles of all 10 healthy adult subjects tested. They occurred in the finger and wrist extensors and the biceps, but no response or inhibitory responses were observed in the opponens pollicis, finger and wrist flexors and the triceps. 3. The production of ipsilateral MEPs required contraction of the target muscle. The threshold TMS intensity for ipsilateral MEPs was on average 1.8 times higher, and the onset was 5.7 ms later (in the wrist extensor muscles) compared with size-matched contralateral MEPs. 4. The corticofugal pathways of ipsilateral and contralateral MEPs could be dissociated through differences in cortical map location and preferred stimulating current direction. 5. Both ipsi- and contralateral MEPs in the wrist extensors increased with lateral head rotation toward, and decreased with head rotation away from, the side of the TMS, suggesting a privileged input of the asymmetrical tonic neck reflex to the pathway of the ipsilateral MEP. 6. Large ipsilateral MEPs were obtained in a patient with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum. 7. The dissociation of the pathways for ipsilateral and contralateral MEPs indicates that corticofugal motor fibres other than the fast-conducting crossed corticomotoneuronal system can be activated by TMS. Our data suggest an ipsilateral oligosynaptic pathway, such as a corticoreticulospinal or a corticopropriospinal projection as the route for the ipsilateral MEP. Other pathways, such as branching of corticomotoneuronal axons, a transcallosal projection or a slow-conducting monosynaptic ipsilateral pathway are very unlikely or can be excluded.  (+info)

The homeodomain protein vax1 is required for axon guidance and major tract formation in the developing forebrain. (5/203)

The homeodomain protein Vax1 is expressed in a highly circumscribed set of cells at the ventral anterior midline of the embryonic CNS. These cells populate the choroid fissure of the optic disk, the body of the optic stalk and nerve, the optic chiasm and ventral diencephalon, and the anterior midline zones that abut developing commissural tracts. We have generated mutant mice that lack Vax1. In these mice (1) the optic disks fail to close, leading to coloboma and loss of the eye-nerve boundary; (2) optic nerve glia fail to associate with and appear to repulse ingrowing retinal axons, resulting in a fascicle of axons that are completely segregated from optic nerve astrocytes; (3) retinal axons fail to penetrate the brain in significant numbers and fail to form an optic chiasm; and (4) axons in multiple commissural tracts of the anterior CNS, including the corpus callosum and the hippocampal and anterior commissures, fail to cross the midline. These axon guidance defects do not result from the death of normally Vax1(+) midline cells but, instead, correlate with markedly diminished expression of attractive guidance cues in these cells. Vax1 therefore regulates the guidance properties of a set of anterior midline cells that orchestrate axon trajectories in the developing mammalian forebrain.  (+info)

Neuropathological abnormalities of the corpus callosum in schizophrenia: a diffusion tensor imaging study. (6/203)

OBJECTIVES: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), a technique capable of examining water diffusion in different tissues and the organisation of white matter tracts, was used to investigate the neuropathology of the corpus callosum in vivo in patients with schizophrenia. METHODS: Diffusion tensor imaging was performed in 20 schizophrenic patients and 25 healthy controls. Two complementary measures, mean diffusivity and fractional anisotropy, which are considered to be sensitive indices of axonal integrity, were obtained from regions of interest in the genu (anterior) and splenium (posterior) of the corpus callosum. RESULTS: Mean diffusivity was significantly increased and fractional anisotropy significantly reduced in the splenium but not the genu of the corpus callosum in the schizophrenic group compared with controls. There were no significant sex differences in the DTI measures for either the schizophrenic or control group. Clinical variables such as age, duration of illness, dose of antipsychotic medication, and schizophrenic symptoms did not predict the DTI changes in the schizophrenic patients. CONCLUSIONS: The presence of DTI changes in the splenium but not the genu of the corpus callosum suggests that there may be a focal disruption of commisural connectivity in schizophrenia. However, these findings do not exclude the possibility of abnormalities in other areas of the corpus callosum or other regions of white matter and further research using different methods of analysis may enable us to clarify this. Diffusion tensor imaging is a valuable tool in investigating the structure of white matter in schizophrenia.  (+info)

Parallel visuomotor processing in the split brain: cortico-subcortical interactions. (7/203)

We tested nine patients with callosal pathology in a simple reaction time task with and without redundant targets in the same or opposite visual hemifield. Four patients showed large facilitation (redundancy gain) in the presence of a redundant target, exceeding probability summation models (neural summation). Five patients showed redundancy gain not exceeding probability models. Violation of probability models was not associated with a specific type of callosal lesion. Neural summation, which probably occurs at collicular level, may be modulated by cortical activity. To test this hypothesis, we used functional MRI. During detection of redundant simultaneous targets, activations in the extrastriate cortex were observed in a patient with callosal agenesis and redundancy gain violating probability models, but not in a patient with callosal agenesis and redundancy gain not exceeding probability models. We conclude that cortical activity in the extrastriate cortex may be a modulating factor in the magnitude of the redundancy gain during parallel visuomotor transforms.  (+info)

Longitudinal callosal fascicles (or Probst bundles) are abnormal collections of brain cells characteristic of patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum. Failure of the callosally-projecting neurons (mostly layer 2/3 pyramidal neurons) to extend axons across the midline and therefore form the corpus callosum[clarification needed] results in anomalous collection of these axonal projections in both hemispheres. Longitudinal callosal fascicles were originally described by Moriz Probst in 1901 by gross anatomical observation. More recently, these anomalies are detected by Magnetic Resonance Imaging or Diffusion Tensor Imaging. Probst, M.

My son has moderate to severe dyslexia and dysgraphia. When he was a child he had great difficulty crossing midline (eg: touching his left hand to his right knee and alternating with his right hand to left knee rapidly) and making eye-contact. Additionally, he would hear voices that would help him in decision making. We went to a number of different specialists as his verbal abilities were well beyond his age. A psychiatrist we contacted re: the voices and a pediatric neurologist both suggested he might have a small corpus callosum. We never did the MRI as his therapy/treatment would not have changed with the diagnosis so we didnt want to put him through it. Do you have any difficulty doing activities that cross midline or doing activities that require opposite movements of your limbs (eg: he didnt crawl as a child).

Our study reports five patients with GATA4 mutations and a variable phenotype of transient or permanent diabetes diagnosed in neonates or during childhood. The exocrine pancreatic phenotype ranged from complete agenesis to hypoplasia with subclinical exocrine insufficiency or normal exocrine function. Additional features included neurocognitive defects and congenital heart malformations. The variable phenotype was not correlated with the size of the deletion, consistent with the variable penetrance of GATA4 mutations/deletions reported in the literature. Both patients with pancreatic agenesis (this study and DAmato et al. [11]) had missense mutations rather than deletions, but the absence of diabetes in two heterozygous relatives suggests that a dominant-negative effect is unlikely (11). Our results indicate that GATA4 mutations/deletions are a rare cause of NDM, accounting for 0.5% of our international series (4/867 cases). The observation that postzygotic GATA4 mutations in embryonic heart ...
Benson Henderson (file photo) took it to Jim Miller. Photo: Jeff Sherwood It can be easy to get high on a fighter after a win and flee his bandwagon after a loss.

In this work, we have expressed the rat GnRHR in CHO-K1 cells, with functional properties that reflect those of the native receptor in pituitary or other expression systems. In particular, the GnRHR displayed a K d of 0.94 ± 0.35 nM with the recently developed (Flanagan et al., 1998)125I-labeled [His5-dTyr6]GnRH, in agreement with the 1.50 ± 0.27 nM measured in rat pituitary with the same agonist. Moreover, GnRH elicited a dose-dependent IP production with an EC50 of 2.1 ± 0.2 nM and an internalization rate again comparable with those measured in pituitary cells (Huckle and Conn, 1987; Arora et al., 1995). This expression system was thus used to examine the effects of mutations on GnRHR functionality.. Our initial, specific interest was to examine the role of Trp279 on GnRHR function. This amino acid is present in the TMH6 of a large range of GPCRs (Probst et al., 1992) and was reported, in some cases, to be actively involved in ligand binding (Nakayama and Khorana, 1991; Yamano et al., ...

A collection of disease information resources and questions answered by our Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Specialists for Corpus callosum agenesis
Autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia (ARHSP) with thin corpus callosum (TCC) is genetically heterogenous and approximately 35% of patients carry mutations in either of the SPG11 or SPG15 genes. Disease onset is during the first three decades of life with spastic paraplegia and mental impairment. Peripheral neuropathy and amyotrophy may occur. Kjellin syndrome is characterized by central retinal degeneration in addition to ARHSP-TCC and the disease is associated with mutations in the SPG15 gene. We identified five patients in four unrelated kindreds with spastic paraplegia and mental impairment. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed TCC, atrophy elsewhere in the brain and increased T2 signal intensity in the periventricular white matter. Probands from the four kindreds were screened for mutations in the SPG11 gene. All patients were found homozygous or compound heterozygous for truncating SPG11 mutations of which four are reported for the first time. Ophthalmological investigations ...
Acrocallosal Syndrome: genetic disorder in which individuals have large heads, agenesis of the corpus callosum, and finger and toe differences (extra or too few). They usually have developmental delay.

Classically, holoprosencephaly has three forms, alobar, semilobar, and lobar. In the alobar type there is a single ventricle, the thalami and basal ganglia are fused, and the interhemispheric fissure and corpus callosum are absent. In the semilobar type, similar changes are present, however, the cerebral hemispheres are relatively more developed. In the lobar type, the ventricles show relatively normal configuration, rostral frontal regions are fused, and the corpus callosum is absent or dysplastic. A variety of milder forms of the anomaly has been described including, holoprosencephaly associated with midline interhemispheric fusion (with atypical callosal dysgenesis), and holoprosencephaly manifesting with fusion of the gyri cinguli (with intact but thinned corpus callosum), and holoprosencephaly associated with aventriculi. The occurrence of holoposencephaly has been attributed to faulty mesenchyme formation, and abnormal persistence or maldifferentiation of the primitive meningeal tissue ...
This condition occurs when the callosal fibers may have started to grow, but are unable to cross between the hemispheres. The fibers grow toward the back of the same hemisphere where they began. These fibers form what are called Bundles of Probst. Some smaller connections between the hemispheres develop in most individuals with ACC. These are the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, and hippocampal commissure. However, each of these is at least 40,000 times smaller than the corpus callosum. Thus, they cannot compensate completely for the absence of the corpus callosum. ...
left hemispheres of the brain together. Disorders of the corpus callosum, or DCCs, are "conditions in which the corpus callosum does not develop in a typical manner." This important brain superhighway is usually formed by 12 to 16 weeks after conception. However, there are some people born without a corpus callosum at all, this is otherwise known as agenesis of the corpus callosum. My 4 year old son has hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, which means that his corpus callosum is thin and therefore may be less efficient. A few other included disorders are partial agenesis, as in partially absent, and dysgenesis, or malformation, of the corpus callosum.. DCCs, like Autism, are a spectrum disorder, where there is no textbook answer to how happy or healthy someone will be just based off of diagnosis. Many parents are finding out during pregnancy due to the advancement in technology and equipment. Unfortunately, they are not always getting the best advice or support, due to the lack of knowledge on ...

Aim: To evaluate the positive predictive value of the midsagittal view of the fetal brain in recognizing the cause of ventriculomegaly diagnosed with traditional axial scan.. Methods: Fifty-eight pregnant women, referred to our Center following a generic diagnosis of ventriculomegaly have been evaluated: 38 had marked and 20 had borderline ventriculomegaly. The fetal brain was scanned by the midsagittal view using a transabdominal probe in fetuses in breech presentation or transverse lie and a transvaginal probe in fetuses in cephalic presentation. The possible cause of ventriculomegaly was postulated by combining the findings of the corpus callosum/cavum septi pellucidi complex with those of the posterior fossa. The prenatal diagnoses were compared with the anatomical specimens of aborted fetuses or with postnatal neuroimaging.. Results: The prenatal diagnoses were confirmed in 54/58 cases (PPV 93.1%). In the marked ventriculomegaly group, one case of partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was ...
I am a speech-language pathologist working with a first-grader with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He speaks in complete sentences and produces most sounds correctly. However, I have just begun working on his prosody. In our first session addressing voicing issues, he was unable to imitate/approximate exaggerated high and low pitch. His mother reports that he does not hum or sing tunes but he does make voices when playing independently with action figures. I have searched our ASHA professional website but did not find any therapy techniques or suggestions. Do you have any resources that might help me?. Response by JoAnne Tully CCC-SLP (2009). I dont know of any articles or discussions that have directly talked about prosody in children with DCC. I do know, however, that a lot of children with DCC have some degree of apraxia, and prosody disorders often accompany apraxia. The Apraxia-Kids website has a good article by Shelley Velleman about prosody. The link to that article is ...

N2 - The goal of the present study was to determine if there are global or regionally specific decreases in callosal area in early Alzheimers disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). In addition, this study examined the corpus callosum of healthy older adults who have subjective cognitive complaints (CC) but perform within normal limits on neuropsychological tests. We used a semi-automated procedure to examine the total and regional areas of the corpus callosum in 22 patients with early AD, 28 patients with amnestic MCI, 28 healthy older adults with cognitive complaints, and 50 demographically matched healthy controls (HC). The AD, MCI, ...

If the upper part of either hemisphere be removed, at a level about 1.25 cm. above the corpus callosum, the central white matter will be exposed as an oval-shaped area, the centrum ovale minus, surrounded by a narrow convoluted margin of gray substance, and studded with numerous minute red dots (puncta vasculosa), produced by the escape of blood from divided bloodvessels.. If the remaining portions of the hemispheres be slightly drawn apart a broad band of white substance, the corpus callosum, will be observed, connecting them at the bottom of the longitudinal fissure; the margins of the hemispheres which overlap the corpus callosum are called the labia cerebri.. Each labium is part of the cingulate gyrus already described; and the slit-like interval between it and the upper surface of the corpus callosum is termed the callosal sulcus.. If the hemispheres be sliced off to a level with the upper surface of the corpus callosum, the white substance of that structure will be seen connecting the two ...
Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with agenesis of the corpus callosum (HMSN/ACC or ACCPN), also known as Andermann Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by severe progressive sensorimotor neuropathy with resulting hypotonia, areflexia, and amyotrophy and variable degrees of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum.NIH ACCPN is inherited as an autosomal recessive, through mutations in the SLC12A6 gene. Several SLC12A6 mutations leading to ACCPN have been identified, including: ...
OFD1, now recognized as a ciliopathy, is characterized by malformations of the face, oral cavity and digits, and is transmitted as an X-linked condition with lethality in males. Mutations in OFD1 also cause X-linked Joubert syndrome (JBTS10) and Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome type 2 (SGBS2). We have studied 55 sporadic and six familial cases of suspected OFD1. Comprehensive mutation analysis in OFD1 revealed mutations in 37 female patients from 30 families; 22 mutations have not been previously described including two heterozygous deletions spanning OFD1 and neighbouring genes. Analysis of clinical findings in patients with mutations revealed that oral features are the most reliable diagnostic criteria. A first, detailed evaluation of brain MRIs from seven patients with cognitive defects illustrated extensive variability with the complete brain phenotype consisting of complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, large single or multiple interhemispheric cysts, striking cortical infolding of gyri, ...
MRI pituitary showed partial agenesis of the corpus callosum with absence of splenium and posterior body. The pituitary gland is of normal size. An incidental CT abdomen and pelvis done 3 weeks later for symptoms suggestive of bowel obstruction revealed no pathology in the adrenals.. This may be a case of idiopathic adrenocorticotropin deficiency. Patients were typically over 40 years, hypogonadism may be present and there is absence of structural pituitary defects except for an empty sella1. It can also be associated with a transient growth hormone deficiency6. The partial agenesis of the corpus callosum is likely to be an incidental finding.. Some studies have shown increased biochemical adrenal insufficiency and prevalence of adrenal antibodies in patients with type 1 diabetes2,3whereas others did not show significant increase in prevalence compared with control subjects4,5. Testing for anti-adrenal antibodies would be necessary to completely rule out coexisting primary adrenal ...
An abnormal appearance of the corpus callosum on CT and MR studies in patients after ventriculoperitoneal shunting has been described previously (1-3). Numaguchi et al (1) described morphologic changes in the corpus callosum after ventricular shunting in six of 35 patients. In three of the six patients, scalloping of the dorsal surface of the corpus callosum was associated with "localized decreased signal" on sagittal T1-weighted images. Scalloping was attributed to ventral collapse of the corpus callosum after shunt placement with segmental tethering of the dorsal surface at sites where arterial rami of the pericallosal artery perforate the body of the corpus callosum. These changes were noted in patients treated for both communicating and obstructive hydrocephalus; however, four of the six were of the obstructive type, with tumors of the tectum obstructing the aqueduct. These authors hypothesized that the signal changes were secondary to "softening" of the corpus callosum as a result of ...

Horizontal and vertical line bisection was studied in 129 children and adolescents between 8 and 19 years of age, one group (n=32) of typically developing controls and one group (n=97) with spina bifida (SBM), a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with dysmorphology of the corpus callosum, posterior cortex, and midbrain. For each participant, structural brain MRIs were analyzed qualitatively to identify beaking of the midbrain tectum and corpus callosum agenesis and hypoplasia and quantitatively by segmentation and volumetric analyses of regional cortical white and gray matter. Each group showed the line length effect, whereby greater estimation errors are made with longer lines. The group with SBM differed from controls in terms of both accuracy and variability of line bisection. Children with SBM showed pseudoneglect, attending more than controls to left hemispace. The extent of rightward bisection bias was unrelated to right posterior brain volumes, although an intact corpus callosum ...
The importance of the corpus callosum for binocular interaction in areas 17 and 18 of the adult cat is still a matter of controversy, since its specific role in integrating information from the two eyes has been suggested by some and questioned by others. We have reanalyzed the problem by assessing binocular interaction for single neurons in areas 17 and 18 of adult cats submitted to section of the posterior two-thirds of the corpus callosum. In 5 cats this interhemispheric disconnection was performed from 10 days to 7 weeks before the electrophysiological recordings; in another cat callosal afferents to the recording sites were at first partially eliminated by an acute lesion of corresponding cortical zones in the other hemisphere, and thereafter completely interrupted by a posterior callosal section performed in the same recording session. Recordings were mainly aimed at the callosal zone of areas 17 and 18, which coincides with the border between these two areas and corresponds to visual ...
Here is a rendering of the corpus callosum with some of the grey matter stripped away in order to reveal how extensive its fibers are throughout the cerebral hemispheres. The corpus callosum is a large system of nerve fibers connecting the right and left hemispheres. We know something about its functioning through the split-brain operation,…
The corpus callosum is a thick band of nerve fibers that is located at the center of the brain underneath the cerebrum and divides the brain into left and right hemispheres. It allows both sides of the brain to communicate by transferring sensory, cognitive, and motor information between the two hemispheres. The corpus callosum is also involved with eye movement and maintaining the balance of attention and arousal. It changes structurally throughout ones life especially during childhood and adolescence. ...

FOXG1 Syndrome. FOXG1 Syndrome is a rare neuro-developmental condition associated with mutations in the forkhead box G1 (FOXG1) gene. A de novo pathogenic variant in FOXG1 was first discovered via fluorescence in situ hybridization and southern blot hybridization in a girl with severe cognitive disability associated with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum and microcephaly in 2005. The FOXG1 gene provides instructions for making a protein known as forkhead box G1. This protein is a transcription factor, which means it helps regulate the activity of other genes. This protein plays an important role in brain development, particularly in a region of the embryonic brain known as the telencephalon. The telencephalon ultimately develops into several critical structures, including the the largest part of the brain (the cerebrum), which controls most voluntary activity, language, sensory perception, learning, and memory.. Typical Symptoms. There is a wide variation in both the symptoms and severity ...

Lack of Hemisphere-Linking Corpus Callosum is Tied to Autism-Like Language Delay. As a pediatric neurologist Sherr has for more than a decade treated and studied children born without a corpus callosum, a condition that affects between one-in-three-thousand and one-in-four-thousand newborns. The corpus callosum normally develops between the 10th and 14th weeks of gestation, and its failure to develop - called "agenesis" - can be routinely detected during prenatal ultrasound examination. "Almost all who are born with this condition, even the highest functioning, have delays in language acquisition, although most of them learn to speak eventually," Sherr said.. Agenesis of the corpus callosum also is associated with intellectual disability and autism-like social and cognitive deficits. Sherr counsels parents and treats newborns and children with the condition. He also has led research studies that have implicated mutations in single genes as potential causes of agenesis.. Some neurologists are ...

Loet Leydesdorff. Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR), University of Amsterdam, Kloveniersburgwal 48, 1012 CX Amsterdam, The Netherlands; [email protected]; http://www.leydesdorff.net &. Carole Probst. Faculty of Communication Sciences, Universit della Svizzera italiana,. Switzerland; [email protected] Abstract. A journal set in an interdisciplinary or newly developing area can be determined by including the journals classified under the most relevant ISI Subject Categories into a journal-journal citation matrix. Despite the fuzzy character of borders, factor analysis of the citation patterns enables us to delineate the specific set by discarding the noise. This methodology is illustrated using communication studies as a hybrid development between political science and social psychology. The development can be visualized using animations which support the claim that a specific journal set in communication studies is increasingly developing, notably in the being cited ...
Generally, axons provide communication between brain regions and between the brain and the spinal cord. In these images, the axons are colored based on their orientation and direction. For example, axons running from front to back are blue, from right to left are red, and from interior to exterior are green. In the image above, the red axons of the corpus callosum are connecting the two hemispheres. Cleverly, DTI has been described as a white matter atlas ...

Meet Joe. After suffering from years of epilepsy, Joe underwent brain surgery to have his corpus callosum severed. The corpus callosum, also referred to as the colossal commissure, is a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers at the longitudinal fissure that facilitates interhemispheric communication in the brain. By having this band severed, Joe prevented the spread of epileptic seizure from one hemisphere to the other.. Continue reading →. ...
1. INTRODUCTION Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is diagnosed at the presence of an estimated fetal weight below the 10th centile and is a frequent condition in perinatal medicine, reaching a prevalence of 5-8% in live newborn babies being a major contributor of perinatal and long term morbidity, such as neurological deficits. We hypothesized that these neurological impairement are related to brain microstructural changes which might be characterized by fetal neuroimaging, either MRI or ultrasonography. Identifying fetuses at risk for abnormal neurodevelopment in fetal medicine lays the basis to perform specific strategies to potentially improve both pre and postnatal management, such as timely delivery, careful support for breastfeeding and a thoughtful use of this window of opportunity to improve their neurocognitive outcome through specific strategies. So the objective of this thesis was to identify brain imaging biomarkers that could predict an adverse neurological outcome in small for ...
In this study of middle-aged adults with type 1 diabetes, the Hp 1 allele was associated with greater WMH localized in the interhemispheric connecting fibers of the corpus callosum. This association appeared to be largely driven by diabetes duration, which strongly correlated with WMH and the presence of at least one Hp 1 allele. However, although adjusting for duration rendered the Hp-total brain WMH association nonsignificant, it did not eliminate the Hp-total corpus callosum WMH association.. During the past decade, Hp has been emerging as a major risk factor for the development of diabetic CVD, with most studies having focused on type 2 diabetes. Indeed, five longitudinal studies showed significantly increased cardiovascular risk with Hp 2-2, although a similar association has generally not been observed in nondiabetic populations (5-9). Moreover, despite numerous trial failures to demonstrate cardiovascular benefit with antioxidant supplementation, three trials provided evidence that the ...

Downing. Then I might try looking at David Snowdens "cynefin" framework particularly when a competent, but not yet capable practitioner exists at the (frightening) boundary between "simple" problems (borderline PD self-harm) and "chaotic" events (truly self-destructive behaviour), when they are sure they can ID the pattern, but error might be catastrophic.. I think any or all of those concepts might provide a better explanation of why an individual learner might either leap to a judgment or avoid making any decision. ...

A cavum between the septi pellucidi may reflect neurodevelopmental anomalies in midline structures of the brain. The authors examined cavum septi pellucidi in subjects with schizophrenia, affective disorder, and schizotypal personality disorder and in normal subjects.Thirty schizophrenic patients (15 chronic, 15 first-episode), 16 patients with affective disorder (first-episode), 21 patients with schizotypal personality disorder, and 46 normal subjects were evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging. Cavum septi pellucidi was assessed by counting the number of 1.5-mm slices containing cavum septi pellucidi.The presence or absence of cavum septi pellucidi did not differentiate among groups. However, the prevalence of abnormal cavum septi pellucidi (i.e., cavum septi pellucidi contained on four or more slices) was 30.4% for schizophrenic patients (36.4% for chronic, 25.0% for first-episode), 20.0% for patients with affective disorder, 18.8% for patients with schizotypal personality disorder, and ...
Background Tourette syndrome (TS) is a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by the presence of multiple motor and phonic tics. Recent brain imaging investigations with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) techniques found reduced measures of connectivity in the corpus callosum of children with TS compared with healthy controls, thus raising the hypothesis that the reduced interhemispherical connectivity in TS reflects neural plasticity processes.. Methods We assessed corpus callosum white-matter connectivity with fractional anisotropy (FA) index from magnetic resonance-DTI in two monozygotic twins (male sex; age 20) discordant for the diagnosis of TS.. Results Both conventional morphological magnetic resonance images and fibre-tracking reconstruction failed to show any difference between the two twins. On the other hand, mean corpus callosum FA values were significantly lower in the affected twin than in the unaffected twin (p,0.01). The differences in FA values were highest in the ...

Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD), also known as de-Morsier syndrome, is a rare disorder characterized by any combination of optic nerve hypoplasia, pituitary gland hypoplasia, and midline abnormalities of the brain including absence of the septum pellucidum and corpus callosum dysgenesis. The variable presentation of SOD includes visual, neurologic, and/or hypothalamic-pituitary endocrine defects. The unclear aetiology of a large proportion of SOD cases underscores the importance of identifying novel SOD-associated genes. To identify the disease-causing gene in a male infant with neonatal hypoglycaemia, dysmorphic features, and hypoplasia of the optic nerve and corpus callosum, we designed a targeted next-generation sequencing panel for brain morphogenesis defects. We identified a novel hemizygous deletion, c.6355 + 4_6355 + 5delAG, in intron 38 of the FLNA gene that the patient had inherited from his mother. cDNA studies showed that this variant results in the production of 3 aberrant FLNA transcripts, the
Hamzeh et al (2016) reported a family with two brothers affected with Chudley McCullough Syndrome. The two children were born to healthy consanguineous Yemeni parents. Both had bilateral severe sensorineural hearing loss and had cochlear implants placed in their right ears. Both had moderate speech delay and mild developmental delay. They had hyperextensible elbow and knee joints. Brain CT in the older brother revealed posterior third ventricular cystic lesion, suggestive of an arachnoid cyst, along with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. In the younger brother, CT brain showed the presence of a large posterior third ventricular arachnoid cyst extending to the left of the midline, compressing the left hemisphere and lateral ventricles. Partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was also seen. There was a positive family history of hearing loss and speech delay in the family, with the two of the parents maternal cousins being affected. Molecular analysis identified a novel homozygous mutation ...
Aicardi syndrome is a sporadic X-linked dominant, presumably male-lethal, neurodevelopmental disorder. It was initially characterized by agenesis of the corpus callosum, neuronal migration defects, eye abnormalities (chorioretinal lacunae, colobomas of the optic nerve and microphthalmia) and severe early-onset seizures and neurodevelopmental delay. It is now well recognized that other brain abnormalities, such as polymicrogyria, agyria, cysts and heterotopias are common features of Aicardi syndrome. We previously hypothesized that the gene causing Aicardi syndrome and possibly additional phenotypically similar disorders with X-linked inheritance, such as Goltz syndrome or Focal Dermal Hypoplasia, are in or near the region on chromosome Xp22 that is deleted in another condition named microphthalmia with linear skin defects syndrome (MLS), because all three have some clinical similarities. However, interim studies have shown that this is likely not the case because no mutations were found in ...

Shapiro syndrome is an extremely rare disorder consisting of paroxysmal hypothermia (due to hypothalamic dysfunction of thermoregulation), hyperhydrosis (sweating), and agenesis of the corpus callosum with onset typically on adulthood. The disease affects about 50 people worldwide. The duration and frequency of the episodes vary from person to person, with some episodes lasting hours to weeks and occurring from hours to years. Very little is known about the disease due to the small number of people affected.

Definition: Chiari type II malformation (CMII) is one of three hindbrain malformations that display hydrocephalus.In this case, the cerebellum and a portion of the brainstem are displaced into the spinal canal. CM II, is a unique hindbrain herniation found only in patients with myelomeningocele. Arnold-Chiari type II malformation may impede CSF flow and cause hydrocephalus, which occurs in more than 90% of infants with myelomeningocele(particularly after treatment of the myelomeningocele). Cerebral cortex dysplasia, including cerebral heterotopias, polymicrogyria, abnormal lamination, fused thalami, and corpus callosum abnormalities, are other anomalies often associated with Arnold-Chiari type II malformations. ...
Children with hydrocephalus have deficits in several neuropsychological domains. The most notable are motor, visuoperceptual, and visuomotor function. These deficits are multiply determined and depend on the etiology and severity of the hydrocephalus to a large extent. Corpus callosum abnormalities resulting from stretching of callosal fibers and other cortical white matter tracts are implicated as contributory to these deficits. Enlarged ventricles and associated compression of posterior cortical areas also correlate with cognitive impairment. Distinguishing which cognitive domain negatively impacts on the childs functioning and which domains influence behavior in isolation or in combination has been the subject of numerous studies. Developmentally, we know little about the emergence of neuropsychological functioning in children with hydrocephalus. Study of the effects of hydrocephalus at different stages of development is useful to clinicians and researchers interested in the impact of ...
Figure 5.9 On the left is a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the brain of a normal adolescent (age 14). The red arrow points to the corpus callosum, the white bundle of fibers that crosses over the midline. The MRI on the right is of an adolescent with FAS (age 14); the red arrow shows the lack of a corpus callosum. [MRI photos courtesy of Drs. Ed Riley and Sarah Mattson, San Diego State University]. Learn more about MRI. The corpus callosum is important in timing tasks, attention, motor tasks, and coordination. When the corpus callosum fails to develop properly a person tends to have problems with attention needed to perform cognitive (thinking) tasks, poor motor coordination, and even mental retardation. Importantly, these defects in brain function can occur even when facial abnormalities are not present. Because the corpus callosum develops throughout gestation, it is sensitive to alcohol exposure during all stages of pregnancy.. ...
Published November 14, 2013 in Simons Foundation Autism Research Institute The largest genetic analysis yet conducted of people lacking a brain structure called the corpus callosum shows that the condition shares many risk factors with autism. The study was published PLoS Genetics. The corpus callosum is the thick bundle of nerve fibers that connects the two hemispheres of the brain. People lacking this structure, a condition called agenesis of the corpus callosum (AgCC), often have social impairments, and roughly one-third of adults meet diagnostic criteria for autism. Children with autism seem to have a smaller corpus callosum than controls do.. http://sfari.org/news-and-opinion/news/2013/genetic-analysis-links-autism-to-missing-brain-structure.

Emma is nearing her second birthday and I couldnt help but to send you a letter on her progress. Our little angel came into this world with a long list of problems that no one would wish on their worst enemy. She spent the first three months of her life in pediatric intensive care units and when she finally did come home prognosis was grim. She has been diagnosed with a rare genetic syndrome and some of her symptoms are peripheral neuropathy, extreme developmental delay, agenesis of the corpus callosum, feeding issues, cortical blindness, epilepsy, and GERD. To quote some of the best neurologists in the world; "Emma is teaching us". What a quote. Definitely not something a parent ever wants to hear about their child; but that is the reality of special needs children.. It was about a month after she got home when I was surfing the Internet looking for answers and I came across the name Anat Baniel. I had never heard of her but people were saying great things.

Our objective was to estimate the frequency as well as to establish the clinical and neuroimaging profile of hereditary spastic paraplegia with thin corpus callosum (HSP-TCC). HSP-TCC was recognized as a specific clinical subtype of HSP and mapped to chromosome (ch) 15q13-15 in Japanese families. It has been considered rare in western countries. We assessed 45 patients with autosomal recessive HSP from 20 different families in search of clinical and imaging criteria or the diagnosis of HSP-TCC. In addition, HSP-TCC patients underwent further neurological, imaging and genetic evaluation. MRI scans were performed in a 2T scanner and sagittal T1 weighted images used for semiautomated volumetric measurements of corpus callosum, cerebellum, and brain. In seven patients, a 2-year follow-up MRI scan was performed. We genotyped seven microsatellite markers flanking the 15q13-15 candidate region and calculated two-point and multipoint LOD scores (Z). We identified 13 patients from seven unrelated ...

Disproportionate volume reductions in the basal ganglia, corpus callosum (CC) and hippocampus have been reported in children with prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). However, few studies have investigated these reductions in high prevalence communities, such as the Western Cape Province of South Africa, and only one study made use of manual tracing, the gold standard of volumetric analysis. The present study examined the effects of PAE on subcortical neuroanatomy using manual tracing and the relation of volumetric reductions in these regions to IQ and performance on the California Verbal Learning Test-Childrens Version (CVLT-C), a list learning task sensitive to PAE. High-resolution T1-weighted images were acquired, using a sequence optimized for morphometric neuroanatomical analysis, on a Siemens 3T Allegra MRI scanner from 71 right-handed, 9- to 11-year-old children [9 fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), 19 partial FAS (PFAS), 24 non-syndromal heavily exposed (HE) and 19 non-exposed controls].

Smith Lemli Opitz syndrome (SLOS) is a 46,XY disorder of sex development, included in the subgroup of disorders in androgene synthesis. The disease is caused by mutations of 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase (DHCR7) gene, conducting to deficient synthesis of the correspondent enzyme and of cholesterol, with important role in embryogenesis, adrenal and gonadal steroidogenesis. Clinical manifestations includ facial dysmorphism, syndactyly, ambiguous external genitalia and visceral malformations.. We present the case of an infant born by cesarean section for fetal suffering (Apgar score 8/1′ 8/5′), with multiple malformations (dysmorphic face, polydactyly, syndactyly, hypospadias, cryptorchidism) detected already at birth. Investigations diagnosed small atrial septal defect and corpus callosum agenesis was suspected. The clinical examination at 4 months of age showed growth failure, dysmorphic face, bilateral ptosis and epicantus, generalized muscle hypotony, asymmetrical polydactyly (complete on ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of tooth agenesis, microdontia, and tooth malformation among non-syndromic oral cleft patients and their potential association with cleft type and gender. Intraoral records and radiographs of 154 patients (97 males and 57 females) were examined. The variables assessed were tooth agenesis, microdontia, dental malformations, and cleft types. The statistics included chi-square and Fishers exact tests as well as logistic regression to assess any mutual effects of gender and cleft type on the dental variables. Tooth agenesis occurred in 50% of the sample and microdontia in 18%. Non-statistically significant odds ratios for the association of gender and cleft type with tooth agenesis were obtained. Tooth agenesis was substantially higher at the unilateral right CL + P and the bilateral CL + P in quadrant 1 and at the unilateral left CL + P and bilateral CL + P in quadrant 2. It was also higher, at the isolated cleft palate (CP) in quadrants 3 and 4.
This chart was computer generated by Emily Probst. The life cycle of Mucuna varies from 100 to 290 days, depending on the different species. The cycle starts with a bean seed. The bean is covered by a hard protective shell called the seed coat. Once the bean is planted, it begins absorbing water and nutrients from the ground. The seed coat softens, and the cells within the seed begin replicating, causing the embryo to grow. As the bean seed continues to grow, the first organ to form, known as the root tip, eventually breaks through the seed covering. The root tip anchors the bean plant to the ground. The development of the stem is the next step of the process. The stem that breaks through the soil is usually in the shape of a hook at first, but with more sunlight, it begins to straighten out. Then the first leaves start to form, and with more sunlight, water and minerals, the bean plant continues to grow more and more leaves. After about six weeks, the bean plant will then start to form flowers, ...
