Article
ESES is a developmental epileptic disorder directly responsible for progressive encephalopathy and neurocognitive regression. The natural history, indications for surgical intervention, and predictors for favorable seizure and neuropsychological outcome remain unclear. We performed a retrospective review of children who underwent resective or disco...

Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is an etiologically heterogeneous syndrome that constitutes the largest proportion of refractory partial epilepsies. The most common substrates of TLE include focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) in children and hippocampal sclerosis (HS) in adults, with significant overlap of lesion types across age groups. In contrast with...

In this work, we will test the hypothesis that the connectivity of language areas in normal children is asymmetric between the hemispheres. Intrahemispheric region of interest (ROI)-to-ROI connectivity was assessed in 40 normal right-handed children. Asymmetries were assessed (1) between the hemispheres (global language connectivity); (2) between B...

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of three-dimensional electroencephalography source imaging (3D-ESI) with low-resolution electroencephalographic data in the pediatric noninvasive presurgical evaluation, and to compare the findings with positron emission tomography (PET) and ictal single-photon emission computed tomog...
Article
Full-text available
The authors revisit the question of the existence of a relationship between hypnotizability and dissociative capacity. In the present study, the State Scale of Dissociation (SSD) replaced the commonly employed Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) as a measure of dissociation, due to the latter capturing primarily pathological aspects of dissociatio...
Article
Full-text available
Variable predictors of postsurgical seizure outcome have been reported in children with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). We analyzed a large surgical series of pediatric TSC patients in order to identify prognostic factors crucial for selection of subjects for epilepsy surgery. Thirty-three children with TSC who underwent excisional epilepsy surge...
Article
Full-text available
To determine the most important factors influencing neuropsychological performance in children with intractable epilepsy due to focal cortical dysplasia and the nature of the interaction among significant variables. Surgical patients with histologically verified focal cortical dysplasia were retrospectively evaluated to determine the impact of hist...
Article
Full-text available
Prenatal and perinatal adverse events are reported to have a pathogenetic role in focal cortical dysplasia (FCD). However, no data are available regarding the prevalence and significance of this association. A cohort of children with significant prenatal and perinatal brain injury and histologically proven mild malformations of cortical development...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigated differences in propositional language organization in children with developmental and acquired brain lesions. We evaluated 30 right-handed subjects with intractable epilepsy due to either focal cortical dysplasia or hippocampal sclerosis with neuropsychological testing and functional MRI prior to epilepsy surgery. Atypical a...
Article
Full-text available
Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is recognized as the major cause of focal intractable epilepsy in childhood. Various factors influencing postsurgical seizure outcome in pediatric patients with FCD have been reported. To analyze different variables in relation to seizure outcome in order to identify prognostic factors for selection of pediatric patie...
Article
Full-text available
Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is the most frequent pathological finding in pediatric epilepsy surgery patients. Several histopathological types of FCD are distinguished. The aim of the study was to define distinctive features of FCD subtypes. We retrospectively reviewed clinical, electroencephalographic, magnetic resonance imaging, neuropsychologi...
Article
Objective: This study used an approach retaining the original factor structure to develop and validate several short-forms of the WISC-IV for use with a general clinical population. Method: Participants were 115 child outpatients administered the WISC-IV in a mental health setting. Sixty-five of participants were male with mean age of 9.97 (S.D. =...
Article
Objective: This pilot study explored the effectiveness of using three commonly used malingering detection strategies when applied to the detection of individuals faking a learning disability. Method: Subjects were 24 students (14 controls and 10 instructed malingerers) enrolled in undergraduate courses (92% female, age = 22.38, S.D. = 5.87; educa...
Article
Objective: This study examined performance on the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) and Freedom From Distractibility Index (FFDI) of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III) among children with and without Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It was hypothesized children with ADHD would score lower than...
Poster
Objective: The present study examined what type of differences existed between males and females in verbal and visual working memory by looking at scores on the Digit Span subtest on the WAIS-III and the Spatial Span subtest on the WMS-III. Method: The participants included 300 adults with an average age of 34.70 (S.D. = 13.86) and average educatio...
Article
Objective: This study examined long-term maintenance of basic reading and arithmetic skills among psychiatric outpatients. It was hypothesized that reading achievement scores would hold better over time compared to arithmetic scores. Method: Participants were 76 psychiatric outpatients divided into three groups based on time since completion of hig...
Article
Objective: The purpose of this study was to conduct an exploratory analysis regarding the differences of functioning between children diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and conduct disorder (CD) on common neuro-psychological tests. Methods: The sample included 243 clinic-referred children diagnosed as either ADHD, CD, or...
Article
Objective: The present study investigated the relationship between reading rate and measures of executive functioning on auditory serial span. According to the Working Memory model, a faster verbal articulation rate should produce greater short-term retention for serial information than a slower rate. For this study, the correlations between two wi...
Article
Objective: Previously, it was found that some personality variables significantly predicted memory performance in centenarians. The current study is to examine the relationship between personality factors and memory performance in a clinical population. Method: Participant data was taken from an archival database of clinical subjects. The participa...
Article
Objective: Previous research has suggested that Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) can improve blood flow in the brains of adults with chronic brain injury. There have also been anecdotal reports of improvements in cognitive behavior, but there have been no objective studies of change in these clients. Method: The current study examined 17 brain in...

Objective: Previous research has suggested that Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) can improve blood flow in the brains of children with chronic brain injury. There have also been anecdotal reports of improvements in motor and cognitive behavior, but there have been no objective studies of change in these children. Method: The current study examine...
Poster
Objective: The Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) was originally intended to briefly quantify the cognitive aspects of the traditional psychiatric mental status examination (Folstein, Folstein, & McHugh, 1975). As a screening instrument, its categories were not empirically justified. Jones and Gallo (2000) retained an oblique five-factor solution...
