The MHC and disease general considerations

Tiwari and Terasaki's book published in 1985 (Tiwari and Terasaki, 1985), listed hundreds of HLA-associated diseases, even though the first demonstration of a strong association, that of HLA-B27 and ankylosing spondylitis (AS), came only a decade earlier. Meanwhile, many more associations have been added to the list but, apart from Narcolepsy, which shows an almost absolute association with DQB1*0602, none have been as strong as the association of HLA-B27 with AS (Lechler and Warrens, 2000). There are conflicting reports for many of the weaker associations, which include everything from aging and dyslexia to autism and sleepwalking (Lecendreux et al., 2003). In some of these studies insufficient numbers of cases and controls were examined to obtain

Assessment Of These Children

An Asian family consisted of a parent and step-parent with a daughter who had learning difficulties and had possibly been sexually abused. Mother was deaf and they spoke Muslim Gujarati. There needed to be a signer, an interpreter and a religious adviser. Often, in such a case, the family will be seen for assessment because a crisis has arisen. Unemployment may have occurred or physical or mental illness or domestic violence. The assessment tries to clarify how troubled and damaged the children are and whether the situation will ameliorate once the crisis is past or whether this was a chronically unacceptable situation that the crisis has brought into the open. In this case, could the girl remain living at home

Disputes About Reception Into Care

Understand why they are seen as inadequate (Cleaver and Freeman 1995). A number have grown up in care themselves and do not want this for their children. Others may have mild to moderate learning difficulties or mental health problems. A small number are self-absorbed and either preoccupied in their own need or see the child as a means for their own gratification. The children, whatever the family difficulties, are usually very frightened, may be psychologically frozen and paralysed or may become depressed or angry and defiant. Once in care, they may blossom physically but many may miss their parents and be distressed and preoccupied, or for a period they may switch off and become detached. Many of these children have diagnosable psychopathology as well as poor physical health (McCann et al., 1996).

Cognitive Differences

In addition to affecting perceptual and psychomotor abilities, biological differences between the sexes influence cognitive abilities and personality. A somewhat dated, but still valuable, summary of such differences may be found in Maccoby and Jacklin (1974 also see Eagly & Carli, 1981). One of the most obvious areas of sex differences in cognitive abilities is verbal-linguistic ability. Girls learn to talk and read sooner and, to some extent, better than boys. The incidence of dyslexia (reading disorder) is greater among boys, a larger percentage of boys being in remedial reading classes (Finucci & Childs, 1981 Halpern, 1992). Girls appear to retain their superiority in verbal abilities in elementary school, performing better than boys on tests of spelling, punctuation, reading comprehension, and verbal analogies.

Clinical Description Of The

The condition was first described some 40 years ago (Prader et al., 1956). The clinical phenotype of PWS is characterized by neonatal hypotonia and developmental delay, followed by hyperphagia and major obesity, short stature, secondary hypogonadism, mild dysmorphism, small hands and feet, and mild to moderate mental retardation with learning disability. Consensus diagnostic criteria have been established and proven to be satisfactory for the clinicians (Holm et al., 1993). The frequency of the syndrome is on the order of 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 15,000 (Cassidy, 1984).

Neurogenetic Syndromes

In the field of neurogenetic conditions, fragile X syndrome (FXS) is somewhat unique in that the primary genetic cause of the disease has been traced to the inactivation of a single gene. Affecting approx 1 4000-6000 live births, FXS is the most common form of inherited mental retardation resulting from a known gene (40). The physical characteristics include macroorchidism, large ears, and a long face (41). A distinct neurobehavioral phenotype, which differs between males and females, is present. Males with FXS are typically quite affected, with mild to severe mental retardation and learning disability. Deficits are present in short-term memory speech and

Cognitive and Psychiatric Disturbances

In recent years, awareness of cognitive dysfunction in MS patients has increased, although abnormalities have been variably reported in 0 to 90 of cases (104,105). A follow-up study of 45 patients with MS, initially studied early in their disease course, found that only 20 of 37 initially cognitively normal individuals remained so after 10 years (106). Clearly, severe dementia is unusual in MS, but more subtle abnormalities of cognitive function are common. These are often unnoticed by patients, families, or physicians, but they may be detected on more formal neuropsychiatric evaluation. The most frequently encountered difficulties are with memory, attention-concentration, and conceptual reasoning-problem solving (104-109). Although cognitive impairments are variable, they typically follow patterns usually associated with subcortical lesions. Several recent studies have provided evidence of impaired driving in patients with MS and cognitive dysfunction (110-112). Aphasia, apraxia,...

Pediatric fMRI research allows developmental disorders such as developmental dyslexia to be studied within the age range in which they typically first appear, and thus provides opportunities both for early prevention intervention and dynamic tracking of cortical changes associated with gains in cognitive skills.

Dangerous Systems

The rules, policies and practices can be another source of danger. Consider the rules of confidentiality. They have a desirable goal, but create problems in practice. The author has yet to find an audience of practitioners, medical or social work, which has not had problems in getting information about patients or clients from another profession. The problem has existed for decades, at least, and yet it has not been tackled. A major problem is the 'level' of responsibility involved. It is beyond the power of individual risk-taking practitioners to get the problems sorted. It is even beyond their managers and supervisors, and their employers. It needs to be tackled at governmental and or professional association level. But these people do not seem to perceive, or understand, their contribution to making risk-taking more dangerous. Another example would be the response to relatively minor offences committed by people with a mental disorder and or learning disability. Few see much point...

Adoption Disputes

Considerable emphasis is being placed on speeding up the process. Many children, where no parent is involved and Social Services are stretched drift into care but where the adoption is disputed, time does allow the parent and child to explore whether rehabilitation or regular good contact is possible or not. An attempt to make adoption less contentious has involved the possibility of open adoption, but its implementation depends on the adoptive parents. Anna's mother had learning difficulties and schizo-affective disorder. Anna was in and out of care whenever mother needed admission. Two years later this 5-year-old had been back and forth to one foster family and had had more time with them than with her mother. Open adoption was proposed mother was distressed. But with further contact with her social worker, prospective adoptive parents and Anna, mother decided that it was better for Anna to be adopted if she could continue to see her. The prospective adopters recognised it would be...

Asymmetry metrics

Intriguingly, increased synchronization among distant regions has been observed within low-frequency oscillations (e.g., theta), whereas increased local synchronization has been observed for high-frequency oscillations (e.g., gamma Buzsaki & Draguhn, 2004 von Stein & Sarn-thein, 2000). In general, brain regions that are co-activated during a given cognitive process are assumed to show increased coherence ( neuronal synchronization ) within specific EEG frequency bands, depending on the nature and difficulty of the task (Weiss & Mueller, 2003). For some authors, such coherence measurements have been interpreted as reflecting cortical interactions or connectivity (e.g., Thatcher, Krause, & Hrybyk, 1986). Consistent with this speculation, increased coherence has been generally observed with increased task complexity and efficient information processing, whereas pathological conditions characterized by dysfunctional networks (e.g., dementia, dyslexia) are characterized by decreased...

Before Intervention

This chapter has provided illustrations of the utility and promise of structural and functional MRI and how these techniques can be used to map changes in the human brain as a function of development. For example, a number of regional changes have been reported in the developing human brain, particularly in regions of association cortex that have been linked to higher cognition (language and memory). And, pushing the methodology a step further, we can investigate changes in the human brain associated with learning and intervention. At least three examples of anatomical and functional brain changes associated with behavioral and or pharmacologic treatment were provided in this chapter. These examples, work on the developmental disorders of ADHD, OCD, and dyslexia, represent but a select sample of disorders investigated with this methodology. Ultimately, phMRI studies may be sensitive probes in further elucidating brain regions involved in these, and other, developmental disorders and...

Fragile X syndrome, PKU, William's syndrome, and other neurogenetic disorders. Examples of the second strategy are genetic studies of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, dyslexia, developmental speech and language disorders, schizophrenia, Tourette's syndrome, and other psychiatric disorders. Because the details of most of the discoveries using each strategy are described elsewhere, we will not review specific discoveries except in an illustrative way. Instead, this chapter focuses on methods and the general implications of what has already been discovered for developmental cognitive neuroscience. The backward strategy, exemplified by recent work on the neuropsychology and genetics of dyslexia and ADHD, usually has the advantage of greater prevalence and larger samples. But given the ubiquitous problems of etiological heterogeneity and phenocopies (the same phenotype is produced by environmental causes), it is almost certain that not all the individuals in these...
