Three gender-balanced groups of 16 school children (5-6 years, 8-9 years, 11-12 years) participated in individual pretests of vision, hearing, and time to walk across a 12-m wide urban street and back. Each child then completed 10 roadside trials requiring judgement of the threshold point at which they would no longer cross in front of traffic approaching(More)
This article reports the utility of an information processing approach to examine whether there is a relationship between sexual content induced delay and levels of sexual desire as determined by self-report questionnaires. We tested this idea using a partial replication of the J. H. Geer and H. S. Bellard (1996) protocol demonstrating sexual content(More)
BACKGROUND It is well documented that doctors experience a high level of stress in their profession, and that this can lead to physical, psychological, and emotional harm, in particular, burnout. Overseas (especially in the UK and USA), research investigating the levels of stress, burnout, and associated psychiatric morbidity in health professionals, across(More)
This study compared the impact of surgery on sexual desire in women who had undergone hysterectomy with women whose nongynecological surgery was of a similar status. Women aged 30 to 65 completed mailed questionnaires including the Sexual Desire Questionnaire, Hurlbert Index of Sexual Desire, and the Sexual Desire Inventory. Other areas assessed were(More)
INTRODUCTION The history of treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) has involved a repeated pattern of uptake, followed by abandonment of the various therapies in the medium term. Even effective and simple to use medications are not necessarily continued; discontinuation rates range between 15% and 60%. Despite the association between partner sexual(More)
Many neuroendocrine tumors, including pheochromocytomas (PCs) and paragangliomas (PGLs), express one or more somatostatin receptors (SSTR1-5). A number of studies have reported SSTR expression in PCs and PGLs. However, receptor expression patterns have been conflicting, and until recently, specific monoclonal antibodies were not available against SSTR1-5.(More)
INTRODUCTION Several preference studies comparing a short-acting with a longer-acting phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor have been conducted in men. Most men in those studies preferred tadalafil rather than sildenafil, and recent post hoc analysis of one study described several factors associated with men's treatment preference. No prospective studies have(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypogonadism is a common endocrine condition characterized by low levels of testosterone (T) and marked by numerous symptoms, one of which is low sexual desire. Studies comparing T delivery systems have suggested that hypogonadal men's partners may be at risk from exposure to T gels. Little other mention is found of the impact of hypogonadism(More)
The cognitive processing of sexual and non-sexual pictorial stimuli was examined to see whether picture rating and recognition tasks have potential utility as a means of assessing levels of sexual desire. Previous research has revealed slower responding to sexual compared to neutral semantic cues in persons with lower self-reported sexual desire. The(More)
