Normal brain development throughout childhood and adolescence is usually characterized by decreased cortical thickness in the frontal regions as well as region-specific patterns of increased white matter myelination and ...
Strong-meter and weak-meter rhythm identification in spina bifida meningomyelocele and volumetric parcellation of rhythm-relevant cerebellar regions
(Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 2009-07)
Children with spina bifida meningomyelocele (SBM) are impaired relative to controls in terms of discriminating strong-meter and weak-meter rhythms, so congenital cerebellar dysmorphologies that affect rhythmic movements ...
