Mapping the language-specific cerebrocerebellar network of the human brain through diffusion tensor imaging
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
Language was arguably a key influence in the evolution of the human brain and the evolution of this behavior in humans was likely associated with gross morphological changes and novel neural networks. My dissertation looked ...
Intracranial and whole brain volumes in infants with sagittal craniosynostosis
Single-suture craniosynostosis occurs in approximately1 in 2000 live births and has been associated with brain dysmorphology. It has been suggested that premature fusion of cranial sutures restricts and alters brain growth ...
Brain phenotypes in a mouse model for Apert Syndrome [abstract]
Apert Syndrome (AS) is one of several fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) related craniosynostosis syndromes. Individuals with AS display craniofacial dysmorphology and a constellation of central nervous system ...
Patterns of brain growth in one FGFR2 mouse model for Apert Syndrome
Apert syndrome is a disorder associated with craniosynostosis resulting from one of two mutations in Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 2 (FGFR2). Individuals with Apert syndrome demonstrate brain dysmorphology, often ...
Analysis of the cerebellum in individuals with autism spectrum disorder using magnetic resonance imaging [abstract]
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects approximately 1 of every 150 people in the US population. Individuals with ASD have been shown to display deficits in motor coordination, suggesting ...
Relationship between otitis media and temporal bone pneumatization [abstract]
Chronic otitis media, or middle ear inflammation, is correlated with reduced pneumatization of the temporal bone. It is unclear whether the chronic otitis media causes reductions in the size of the air cell system, or if ...
