The in vitro rodent visual cortical slice preparation demonstrates a critical period for long-term potentiation (LTP). Current source density (CSD) analysis reveals peak potentiation of both supra-(layers II-III) and infragranular (layers V) layers…

This is a case of a 3-week-old male who presented to the emergency department with intermittent apnea and cyanosis. While in the emergency department, he had respiratory compromise with stress and required intubation. Further evaluation confirmed the…

This is a case of a 3-week-old male who presented to the emergency department with intermittent apnea and cyanosis. While in the emergency department, he had respiratory compromise with stress and required intubation. Further evaluation confirmed the…

Studies of gene expression from bone, cartilage, and other tissues are complicated by the fact that their RNA, collected and pooled for analysis, often represents a wide variety of composite cells distinct in individual phenotype, age, and state of…

Gene expression of osteopontin (OPN) has been investigated in mice by application of laser capture microdissection (LCM) and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis. LCM permits individual cells to be isolated ("captured")…

BACKGROUND: Our genomewide studies support targeted testing the most frequent genetic diseases by patient category: (1) pregnant patients, (2) at-risk conceptuses, (3) affected children, and (4) abnormal adults. This approach not only identifies most…

PURPOSE: We investigate the accuracy of urine volumes obtained by an automated bladder scan in complex neonatal cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Automated bladder scan determinations of urine volumes were obtained by neonatal intensive care unit nursing…

Objectives: Electronic trigger detection tools hold promise to reduce Adverse drug event (ADEs) through efficiencies of scale and real-time reporting. We hypothesized that such a tool could automatically detect medication dosing errors as well as…

Cytomegalovirus is ubiquitous. While most infections are asymptomatic, infants and children acquiring CMV may excrete the virus for years in spite of significant antibody responses. CMV may be transmitted vertically or horizontally. Transplacental…

Because experience in our newborn intensive care unit follow-up clinic since 1982 suggested that immunizations of newborn intensive care unit graduates in the first 2 years of life were inappropriately delayed, questionnaires were sent to families…

Adult mice are highly vocal animals, with both males and females vocalizing in same sex and cross sex social encounters. Mouse pups are also highly vocal, producing isolation vocalizations when they are cold or removed from the nest. This study…

Two models of infant incubators were studied to determine the strength of the magnetic field generated by the heater and fan motors. Measurements were taken at intervals along the center line of the incubator. The results show that fields greater…

Cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) have a soft tissue flipper that encases most of the forelimb, and elongated digits with an increased number of phalanges (hyperphalangy). In addition, some cetaceans exhibit a reduction in digit number.…

From 1972 to 1990, 69 cases of gastroschisis were treated at Akron Children's Hospital Medical Center. Eighty-one percent of these patients underwent primary closure of their abdominal wall defect. Thirteen of 69 patients (19%) required Silastic…

To study early events of neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis and its sequelae, the authors induced a controlled infection in the brains of mice using HSVgH, a genetically modified Disabled Infective Single Cycle virus. Neonatal Balb/C…

BACKGROUND: Craniosynostosis is an uncommon complication after shunting procedures for congenital hydrocephalus. We report a case of a child with myelomeningocele and normocephaly at the time of birth. She underwent ventricular shunting for Chiari…

A patient with neonatal glycine encephalopathy who had severe neurologic retardation, spasticity, and seizures died at 17 years of age. Glycine concentration was markedly elevated in brain tissue, especially in the cerebellum. Neuropathologic study…
