    Background: The prevalence of scoliosis in patients with myelomeningocele has been reported to be as high as 80% to 90% in some studies. However, those studies included patients with both congenital and developmental curves. The variation in the patient population as well as the definition of...

    Introduction: Meningomyelocele (MMC) is the most severe form of spina bifida caused by both genetic and environmental components. It is well known that status of folate plays an important role in the risk of neural tube defects. High homocysteine (Hc) level may be associated with disturbed...

    What determines how close you choose to stand to someone? Why do some people prefer farther distances than others? We hypothesized that an important factor is one's sensory sensitivity level, i.e. how sensitive one is to nearby visual stimulation, noise, touch or smell. This study characterizes...
