A relationship between Autism-Spectrum Quotient and face viewing behavior in 98 participants

Kira Wegner-Clemens, Johannes Rennig & Michael S Beauchamp
Faces are one of the most important stimuli that we encounter, but humans vary dramatically in their behavior when viewing a face: some individuals preferentially fixate the eyes, others fixate the mouth, and still others show an intermediate pattern. The determinants of these large individual differences are unknown. However, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) spend less time fixating the eyes of a viewed face than controls, suggesting the hypothesis that autistic traits in healthy...

Chromosomal-level genome assembly of the scimitar‐horned oryx: insights into diversity and demography of a species extinct in the wild

Emily Humble, Pavel Dobrynin, Helen Senn, Justin Chuven, Alan F. Scott, David W. Mohr, Olga Dudchenko, Arina D. Omer, Zane Colaric, Erez Lieberman Aiden, Shaikha Salem Al Dhaheri, David Wildt, Shireen Oliaji, Gaik Tamazian, Budhan Pukazhenthi, Rob Ogden & Klaus‐Peter Koepfli
Captive populations provide a valuable insurance against extinctions in the wild. However, they are also vulnerable to the negative impacts of inbreeding, selection and drift. Genetic information is therefore considered a critical aspect of conservation management. Recent developments in sequencing technologies have the potential to improve the outcomes of management programmes; however, the transfer of these approaches to applied conservation has been slow. The scimitar‐horned oryx (Oryx dammah) is a North African antelope that has...

Data for: Meningioangiomatosis- Multimodal analysis and insights from a systematic review

Background:Meningioangiomatosis is a poorly studied, rare, benign, and epileptogenic brain lesion. Objective: To demonstrate that surgical resection and a short time interval to surgery improves epileptic seizure control, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of meningioangiomatosis cases. Methods: Using PRISMA-IPD guidelines, the authors performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of histopathologically proven meningioangiomatosis cases.Literature search in the French and English languages (PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Library and the Science Citation Index) including all studies...

A 12-month-old with hypotonia and developmental delays

Elizabeth Ames, Kerri Neville, Nancy Mcnamara, Catherine Keegan & Sarah Elsea
This data shows the references cited in the case report for the diagnosis of a 12-month-old girl who was referred to the pediatric neuromuscular clinic for evaluation of hypotonia and weakness and ultimately found to have 2 variants of uncertain significance in the NFU1 gene (NM _001002755.2 c.398T>C; p.Leu133Pro and NM _001002755.2 c.299C>G; p.Ala100Gly). Biochemical testing including CSF metabolomics confirmed her diagnosis of NFU1-related multiple mitochondrial dysfunctions syndrome (type 1).

Brain Regions Identified as Being Associated With Verbal Reasoning Through the Use of Imaging Regression via Internal Variation

Long Feng, Xuan Bi & Heping Zhang
Abstract–Brain-imaging data have been increasingly used to understand intellectual disabilities. Despite significant progress in biomedical research, the mechanisms for most of the intellectual disabilities remain unknown. Finding the underlying neurological mechanisms has proved difficult, especially in children due to the rapid development of their brains. We investigate verbal reasoning, which is a reliable measure of an individual’s general intellectual abilities, and develop a class of high-order imaging regression models to identify brain subregions which might...

Nanostring mRNA expression profiling of P7 Arx(GCG)10+7 neonatal cortex using nCounter® mouse Neuropathology Plus Panel

Meagan Siehr, Cory Massey & Jeffrey Noebels
X-linked infantile spasms syndrome (ISSX) is a clinically devastating developmental epileptic encephalopathy with life-long impact. Arx(GCG)10+7, a mouse model of the most common triplet-repeat expansion mutation of ARX, exhibits neonatal spasms, electrographic phenotypes and abnormal migration of GABAergic interneuron subtypes. Neonatal presymptomatic treatment with 17β-estradiol (E2) in Arx(GCG)10+7 reduces spasms and modifies progression of epilepsy. Cortical pathology during this period, a crucial point for clinical intervention in ISSX, has largely been unexplored, and the pathogenic...

Photoelectrochemical Immunosensor Based on ZnIn2S4/Bi2Se3 Nanocomposite for the Determination of Cardiac Troponin I

Wanxin Dong, Xinxin Mo, Yu Wang, Qin Lei & He Li
In this work, a novel flexible photoelectrochemical immunosensor is developed to determine cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in serum. The flower-like ZnIn2S4 nanospheres (ZIS), as signal amplification material, were successfully synthesized by a solvothermal method. The ZIS and Bi2Se3 were modified on the indium tin oxide- polyethylene terephthalate (ITO-PET) electrode, which effectively accelerates the electronic transition and improved the photocurrent conversion efficiency (signal on). However, the binding of antigen–antibody proteins blocks the electron transfer, resulting in...

Dynamic stimulation of visual cortex produces form vision in sighted and blind humans

Michael Beauchamp, Denise Oswalt, Ping Sun, Brett Foster, John Magnotti, Soroush Niketeghad, Nader Pouratain, William Bosking & Daniel Yoshor
A visual cortical prosthesis(VCP) has long been proposed as astrategy for restoringuseful vision to the blind, under the assumptionthat visual percepts of small spots of lightproduced withelectrical stimulation of visual cortex (phosphenes) will combine into coherent percepts of visual forms, like pixels on a video screen.We tested analternative strategy in which shapes were traced on the surface of visual cortex by stimulating electrodes in dynamic sequence. In both sighted and blind participants, dynamic stimulation enabled...

Cohesin depleted cells rebuild functional nuclear compartments after endomitosis

Marion Cremer, Katharina Brandstetter, Andreas Maiser, Suhas S P Rao, Volker Schmid, Miguel Guirao-Ortiz, Namita Mitra, Stefania Mamberti, Kyle N Klein, David Gilbert, Heinrich Leonhardt, Maria Cristina Cardoso, Erez Lieberman Aiden, Hartmann Harz & Thomas Cremer
Cohesin plays an essential role in chromatin loop extrusion, but its impact on a compartmentalized nuclear architecture is debatable. Using live-cell and super-resolved 3D microscopy, we demonstrate that cohesin-depleted cells pass through an endomitosis and rebuild a single multilobulated nucleus (MLN) with chromosome territories (CTs) pervaded by interchromatin channels. CTs contain chromatin domain clusters with a zonal organization of repressed chromatin domains in the interior and transcriptionally competent domains located at the periphery. Splicing speckles...

Data from: Pediatric intensive care unit admissions for COVID-19: insights using state-level data

Enrique G. Villarreal, Rohit S. Loomba, Saul Flores, Juan S. Farias & Ron A. Bronicki
Introduction Intensive care has played a pivotal role during the COVID-19 pandemic as many patients developed severe pulmonary complications. The availability of information in pediatric intensive care (PICUs) remains limited. The purpose of this study is to characterize COVID-19 positive admissions (CPAs) in the United States and to determine factors that may impact those admissions. Materials and Methods This is a retrospective cohort study using data from the COVID-19 dashboard virtual pediatric system) containing information...

Supplementary data for: Primate phylogenomics uncovers multiple rapid radiations and ancient interspecific introgression

Dan Vanderpool, Bin Quang Minh, Robert Lanfear, Daniel Hughes, Shwetha Murali, R. Alan Harris, Muthuswamy Raveendran, Donna M. Muzny, Richard A. Gibbs, Kim C. Worley, Jeffrey Rogers, Matthew W. Hahn, Mark S. Hibbins & Robert J. Williamson
Our understanding of the evolutionary history of primates is undergoing continual revision due to ongoing genome sequencing efforts. Bolstered by growing fossil evidence, these data have led to increased acceptance of once controversial hypotheses regarding phylogenetic relationships, hybridization and introgression, and the biogeographical history of primate groups. Among these findings is a pattern of recent introgression between species within all major primate groups examined to date, though little is known about introgression deeper in time....
