BACKGROUND A goal of stroke rehabilitation is to harness the capacity of the brain to reorganize following neurological damage and enable restoration of function. OBJECTIVE To understand how neural oscillatory motor responses change following a therapeutic intervention and to illuminate whether these neurophysiological alterations correlate with(More)
Notalgia paresthetica (NP) presents typically as a unilateral localized itch in the midscapular area. Although the pathogenesis of NP has not been fully elucidated, it is widely believed to be a neurogenic itch resulting from spinal nerve impingement or chronic nerve trauma (1, 2). Massey & Fleet (3) postulate that spinal nerves from T2 to T6 emerge through(More)
This paper describes a phenomenological study in which the authors explored students' experiences learning qualitative research in a variety of academic fields. Semi-structured in-depth interviews were conducted with six participants from various academic fields who had completed at least one post-secondary-school-level qualitative research course and who(More)
It is well established that when audiences have difficulty classifying objects, they tend to devalue them. However, difficult to classify objects do receive high valuations, and easily classified objects can receive low ones. I argue that a closer examination of specific evaluations by audience members, rather than aggregate assessments of objects, can shed(More)
BACKGROUND Intensive, task-oriented motor training has been associated with neuroplastic reorganization and improved upper extremity movement function after stroke. However, to optimize such training for people with moderate-to-severe movement impairment, pharmacological modulation of neuroplasticity may be needed as an adjuvant intervention. OBJECTIVE(More)
Research on the effects of social networks on individual status attainment has exploded in recent years, but the results remain equivocal, varying across network structures, types of ties, and outcome variables. The focus in this literature has been on two primary outcomes—performance benefits and rewards (including promotion and compensation). These two(More)
