Extractions: Home Page The Whitehall Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation which is focused exclusively on assisting basic research in vertebrate (excluding clinical) and invertebrate neurobiology in the United States. Investigations should specifically concern neural mechanisms involved in sensory, motor, and other complex functions of the whole organism as these relate to behavior. The overall goal should be to better understand behavioral output or brain mechanisms of behavior. Please select from the menu of topics on the left to learn more about the Whitehall Foundation, our grant programs, and the application process.

Extractions: A Review of the Past 10 Years Barbara Geller, M.D. and Joan Luby, M.D. J Am Acad Child Adoles Psychiatry 36:1168-1176, 1997 Abstract Objective: To provide a review of the epidemiology, phenomenology, natural course, comorbidity, neurobiology, and treatment of child and adolescent bipolar disorder (BP) for the past 10 years. This review is provided to prepare applicants for recertification by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Method: Literature from Medline and other searches for the past 10 years, earlier relevant articles, and the authors' experience and ongoing National Institute of Mental Health-funded project "Phenomenology and Course of Pediatric Bipolarity" were used. Results: Age-specific, developmental (child, adolescent, and adult) DSM-IV criteria manifestations; comorbidity and differential diagnoses; and episode and course features are provided. Included are age-specific examples of childhood grandiosity, hypersexuality, and delusions. Differential diagnoses (e.g. specific language disorders, sexual abuse, conduct disorder [CD], schizophrenia, substance abuse), suicidality, and BP-II are discussed. Conclusion: Available data strongly suggest that prepubertal onset BP is a nonepisodic, chronic, rapid cycling, mixed manic state that may be comorbid with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and CD or have features of ADHD and/or CD as initial manifestations. Systematic research on pediatric BP is in its infancy and will require ongoing and future studies to provide developmentally relevant diagnostic methods and treatment.

Extractions: @import "http://pharyngula.org/index?css=weblog/weblog_css"; I don't take joy in the death of any man, and I regret the loss to the family of Ronald Reagan. Reagan, however, was a disaster for American politics: I sincerely believe that his presidency, even more so than Nixon's, was the point where the Republican party went off the rails into outright lunacy, where a figurehead idiot could be elected to the highest office in the land, where Religious Right took over, where the party endorsed insane economics and corruption, where the environment became something to be plundered rather than preserved. Reagan made George W Bush possible...and it's hard to believe, as much as I despised Reagan during his presidency, that now we would have someone in office who actually makes him look respectable. The Talent Show has a good quote to summarize the Reagan legacy: As someone who served with President Reagan, and in the interest of historical accuracy, please allow me to share with you some of my recollections of the Reagan years that I hope will make it into the final cut of the mini-series: $640 Pentagon toilets seats; ketchup as a vegetable; union busting; firing striking air traffic controllers; Iran-Contra; selling arms to terrorist nations; trading arms for hostages; retreating from terrorists in Beirut; lying to Congress; financing an illegal war in Nicaragua; visiting Bitburg cemetery; a cozy relationship with Saddam Hussein; shredding documents; Ed Meese; Fawn Hall; Oliver North; James Watt; apartheid apologia; the savings and loan scandal; voodoo economics; record budget deficits; double digit unemployment; farm bankruptcies; trade deficits; astrologers in the White House; Star Wars; and influence peddling.
Autism Society Of America: Autism Society Of America The primary mission of ASAF is to raise and allocate funds to address the many unanswered questions about autism. ASAF sponsors work as diverse as the people affected by autism, spanning such fields as neurobiology, education, behavioral science, adult services, and disability law. http://www.autism-society.org/
Extractions: Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. The result of a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, autism and its associated behaviors have been estimated to occur in as many as 2 to 6 in 1,000 individuals (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2001). Autism is four times more prevalent in boys than girls and knows no racial, ethnic, or social boundaries. Family income, lifestyle, and educational levels do not affect the chance of autism's occurrence. Frequently Asked Questions

Extractions: DELANEY LAB WEBSITE Current Research Program I am primarily a synaptic physiologist who is interested in a broad range of neurobiological questions all of which ultimately link neural activity and changes in synaptic connection strength to learning, behaviour, sensory perception and brain disorders. This work involves study of neural function at many levels of brain organization, from ion channels in single cells to modulation of complex neural circuits to behaviour in whole animals. In this work we often combine classical electrophysiological techniques such as intra-and extracellular recording and stimulation with optical techniques such as calcium (Ca ) and voltage-sensitive dye imaging. Several model systems have been used but presently, preparations of crayfish neuromuscular junction and whole frog brain maintained in vitro are being studied. Two themes central to our work are: 1) the role of Ca dynamics in determining the time course of activity-dependent and neuromodulator-mediated synaptic enhancement and the 2) role of distributed oscillatory neural activity in sensory perception and stimulus recognition.
