    In late 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread over the world, causing millions of deaths. In the first few months of the pandemic, several countries prevented the spread of the pandemic successfully. By contrast, the pandemic in many other countries was not controlled well. For example, India encountered a second serious outbreak of COVID-19 from April 2021 due to the poor resistance measures implemented by the government. To figure out the effective countermeasures to the pandemic, this r…Read more

    Disrupted fornix integrity in children with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
    with N. J. Goodrich-Hunsaker, M. Cabaral, D. G. Amaral, M. H. Buonocore, D. Harvey, K. Kalish, O. T. Carmichael, C. M. Schumann, A. Lee, R. F. Dougherty, L. M. Perry, B. A. Wandell, and T. J. Simon
    © 2015 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.The fornix is the primary subcortical output fiber system of the hippocampal formation. In children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, hippocampal volume reduction has been commonly reported, but few studies as yet have evaluated the integrity of the fornix. Therefore, we investigated the fornix of 45 school-aged children with 22q11.2DS and 38 matched typically developing children. Probabilistic diffusion tensor imaging tractography was used to reconstruct the body of th…Read more
