This study examined chronic and short-term stress effects on heart rate variability (HRV), comparing time, frequency and phase domain (complexity) measures in 50 healthy adults. The hassles frequency subscale of the combined hassles and uplifts scale (CHUS) was used to measure chronic stress. Short-term stressor reactivity was assessed with a speech task.(More)
Increased cytokine and neopterin levels may be responsible for cancer-related fatigue, the most common complaint among cancer patients. We quantitatively reviewed empirical findings on this topic, focusing on studies not using immunotherapy. PubMed, PsychINFO and BIOSIS were searched for articles published until July 2006. Studies remained unweighted or(More)
PURPOSE To compare ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional images of the pig retina with histology, to evaluate the potential of ultrahigh-resolution OCT for enhanced visualization of intra- and subretinal structures. METHODS Ultrahigh-resolution OCT images were acquired with 1.4- micro m axial x 3- micro m transverse(More)
We show that, although the correlator of four stress-tensor multiplets in N = 4 SYM is known to have radiative corrections, certain linear combinations of its components are protected from perturbative renormalisation and remain at their free-field values. Our argument uses Intriliga-tor's insertion formula, and includes a proof that the possible contact(More)
We present a formalism for the calculation of multi-particle one-loop amplitudes, valid for an arbitrary number N of external legs, and for massive as well as massless particles. A new method for the tensor reduction is suggested which naturally isolates infrared divergences by construction. We prove that for N ≥ 5, higher dimensional integrals can be(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an established diagnostic tool for the clinical assessment of retinal pathology but correlation of acquired signals with retinal substructures has often been ambiguous. In the monkey retina we have now obtained ultrahigh resolution (UHR) OCT images with 1.4 microm axial x 3 microm transverse resolution from(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypertension is more frequent and more severe in older individuals and in African Americans. Differences in autonomic nervous system activity might contribute to these differences. Autonomic effects on the heart can be studied noninvasively through analysis of heart rate variability (HRV). We examined the effects of age and ethnicity on HRV. (More)
