  1. 20 motor-cortex samples of eleven ALS patients and nine controls were analyzed on individual Whole Human Genome Arrays for genome-wide expression profiling. Age, gender, race, and post-mortem interval (mean controls 12.47 ± 6.06 h and mean patients 16.35 ± 6.37 h, P = 0.21) are shown for all tissue samples.
