    Author(s): Abdullah Demir and Senol Dane*

    Background: The simian crease is a single line on the palm. Normal healthy people can have it on their one or both palms, but it can be seen in persons with different pathologies such as Down’s syndrome, leukemia, Alzheimer’s disease, and some behavioral problems.

Results: There were no simian crease status-related statistically significant differences in alexithymia scores in the total sample, in male and in female subjects. However, there were statistically significant gender-related differences in total sample (t=2.128, p=0.038) and in subjects with simian crease (t=2.551, p=0.016), but .. Read More»
