University students report significantly worse sleep quality than the general population. Sleep problems are related to increased health concerns, irritability, depression, fatigue, and attention and concentration difficulties, along with poor academic performance. Clinical research indicates that psychoeducational interventions are among the most effective(More)
The effectiveness of cimetidine for symptomatic relief in patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux was studied in a multicenter, double blind clinical trial. Patients were entered into the study for a total of 8 weeks, receiving either cimetidine, 300 mg four times daily, or identical placebo tablets. Throughout the trial, frequent assessments were(More)
College students are known for their variable sleep schedules. Such schedules, along with other common student practices (e.g., alcohol and caffeine consumption), are associated with poor sleep hygiene. Researchers have demonstrated in clinical populations that improving sleep hygiene knowledge and practices is an effective treatment for insomnia. However,(More)
This study examined the degree to which anxiety contributed to inconsistent material-specific memory difficulties among 243 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy from the Multisite Epilepsy Study. Visual memory performance on the Rey Complex Figure Test (RCFT) was poorer for those with high versus low levels of anxiety but was not found to be related to the(More)
In previous studies, children with both Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a Reading Disorder were found to have more difficulties with processing speed, working memory, and timed as opposed to non-timed executive functioning (EF) measures when compared with those with either disorder alone. The current study found that older adolescents(More)
We have studied the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) response to exogenous histamine and to H1- and H2-blocking agents in the awake baboon. Increasing intravenous bolus doses of histamine produce an increase in LES pressure with a maximum response at a dose of 12 microgram/kg. H1-receptor blockade with chlorpheniramine over a wide dose range did not alter(More)
There are a variety of well-established neuropsychological tests that are helpful in identifying global and specific verbal memory deficits. In contrast, tests of visual memory have produced less consistent results likely due in part to confounding variables such as verbal encodability, administration difficulties, and insufficient differentiation of among(More)
