|Neuroimaging studies for persons in the National Collaborative Chicago-Based Congenital Toxoplasmosis. Study (NCCCTS) with symptoms and signs referable to the spinal cord were reviewed. Three infants had symptomatic spinal cord lesions, another infant a Chiari malformation, and another infant a symptomatic peri-spinal cord lipoma. Congenital toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by intrauterine transmission of the parasite Toxoplasma gondii to the fetus. Traumatic Brain Injuries are a growing epidemic affecting all demographics of our population on a global scale. Pathological and neuroimaging studies have presented a framework that displays the extensive overlap between TBIs and neurodegenerative disease.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
