BACKGROUND Nerve conduction study is essential in the diagnosis of focal neuropathies and diffuse polyneuropathies. There are many factors that can affect nerve conduction velocity, and age is one of them. Most of the many studies of this effect, and the values from them, were on Caucasian subjects. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate the(More)
Insomnia is common among elderly people and nearly 30 to 40% of the adult population also suffer from insomnia. Pharmacological treatment of insomnia include the use of benzodiazepine and non-benzodiazepine drugs like zolpidem, zaleplon, Zopiclone. Although these drugs improve sleep, their usage is also associated with number of adverse effects, Melatonin,(More)
Blood pressure and heart rate responses to oral tyramine have been measured in healthy volunteers before and after administration of the selective monoamine oxidase B inhibitor selegiline at high dosage (30 mg/day). Treatment brought about a 2 to 4-fold increase in tyramine sensitivity and a concomitant small but significant reduction in plasma(More)
Nerve conduction study is essential in the diagnosis of focal neuropathies and diffuse polyneuropathies. Age, height and body mass index (BMI) can affect nerve velocities as reported by previous studies. We studied the effect of these factors on median, ulnar, common peroneal and sural nerves among healthy Malay subjects. We observed slowing of nerve(More)
Silicon Physically Unclonable Functions (SPUFs) are delay based PUFs that exploit stochastic manufacturing process variations of Integrated Circuits (ICs) on silicon chips to construct unclonable cryptographic secret keys which are unique for each chip. One variant of SPUFs, named Ring Oscillator (RO) PUFs, is typically used for the authentication of(More)
A significantly higher proportion of patients with headache showed scores in the psychopathological range of the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) compared with controls, with ratings particularly high on the anxiety and depression subscales. Across the whole group, there was a significant negative correlation between platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO)(More)
Psychometric ratings for both anxiety and depression in 30 cancer patients were significantly elevated compared with values in 16 controls. The scores were especially high in the 14 patients who did not have breast cancer. This group also had significantly greater platelet monoamine oxidase activity than either the breast cancer patients or controls.(More)
