Department of Psychiatry, Institute of Psychiatric Research, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, United States of America
PLoS ONE 6:e20405. 2011..Taken together, this study provides evidence that sAPPα levels are generally elevated in severe autism and suggests that these patients may have aberrant non-amyloidogenic processing of APP...
- Contrasting the neurologic complications of cardiac transplantation in adults and childrenThomas O Mayer
Department of Neurology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis 46202 5124, USA
J Child Neurol 17:195-9. 2002..However, peripheral neuropathies tend to occur more frequently in adults than in children (P = .04), and the types of complications in the immediate post-transplant period seem to differ...
- Autism, Alzheimer disease, and fragile X: APP, FMRP, and mGluR5 are molecular linksD K Sokol
Department of Neurology, Indiana University School of Medicine, 791 Union Drive, Indianapolis, IN 46202, USA
Neurology 76:1344-52. 2011..Treatment with mGluR antagonists may help repress APP mRNA translation and reduce secretion of sAPP in FXS and perhaps autism...
- Finding novel distinctions between the sAPPα-mediated anabolic biochemical pathways in Autism Spectrum Disorder and Fragile X Syndrome plasma and brain tissueBalmiki Ray
Indiana University School of Medicine, Departments of Psychiatry, Indianapolis, Indiana 46202, USA
Sci Rep 6:26052. 2016..Excess Aβ is potentially neurotoxic and can lead to atrophy of brain regions such as amygdala in AD. By contrast, amygdala is enlarged in ASD but not FXS. We previously reported elevated levels of sAPPα in ASD and FXS vs...
- Early cognitive and behavioral problems in children with nodular heterotopiaMarcia V Felker
Department of Neurology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA
Epilepsy Behav 22:523-6. 2011..These findings demonstrate that reading dysfluency can be evident in children with nodular heterotopia, even in the absence of epilepsy, but also highlight difficulties with behavior in this population...
