El fasciculo fronto-occipital inferior, que atraviesa el lobulo de la insula y conecta el lobulo frontal con los lobulos occipital, parietal y temporal.
On examination, his weight was 4.7kg (25th percentile), length 59.5cm (75th percentile) and Fronto-Occipital Circumference (OFC) 38cm (10th percentile).
The Benjamini-Hochberg correction significance level for the 20 P values was 0.00526 and, under this correction, two FA remained statistically significant: the left inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus (IFOF) and left inferior longitudinal fasciculus (ILF).
Parietal (16.5%), frontal (15.2%), and frontoparietal (10.1%) locations were most commonly involved followed by occipitoparietal (6.3%), fronto-occipital (3.8%), cerebellar (2.5%), temporal (2.5%), and occipital (2.5%) locations.
Finally, a third cross-sectional study of binge drinking adolescents and concomitant binge drinking and substance using adolescents found that binge drinking adolescents, again, had lower FA than control subjects in eight different regions, including the superior corona radiata (SCR), inferior longitudinal fasciculus, superior longitudinal fasciculus (SLF), inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus (IFOF), and cerebellar peduncle.
Fronto-occipital compression also led to an increase of curvature in the parietal bones (Larnach 1974:215) which additionally contributed to the flattened backside of the head (Fig.
CT brain showed ring enhancing lesions with edema in the cerebellar vermis, bilateral fronto-occipital regions and 4th ventricle of brain.
This typology identifies two modification styles: annular and fronto-occipital. Annular modification, which is also sometimes referred to as circumferential modification, is a conical variation of the cranial form with reshaping occurring among several bones, including the frontal, temporal, inferior portions of the parietals, and occipital bones, and is believed to be caused by the application of wrapped materials (Hrdlicka 1912).
The inferior longitudinal fasciculus (ILF) and inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus (IFOF) are still classically described as the two main white matter bundles responsible for facilitating the epileptic propagation in OLE because of their close spatial relationship with the optic radiation and the primary visual cortex (V1) [18, 20].
There was no dysmorphism and his height (129 cm) and weight (25 kg) were on the 10th percentile with fronto-occipital circumference of 50 cm which was normal for his age.
They found that, from childhood into early adulthood, differences in fractional anisotropy -- a measure of connectivity -- of the cingulum were associated with executive functioning, whereas fractional anisotropy of the inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus was associated with visual learning and global cognitive performance via speed of processing.
