Climate Change 2001: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vu l n e r a b i l i t y is the most comprehensive and up-to-date scientific assessment of the consequences of, and adaptation responses to, climate change. The report: • Evaluates evidence that recent observed changes in climate have already affected a variety of physical and biological systems. • Makes a(More)
Global environmental change and sustainability science increasingly recognize the need to address the consequences of changes taking place in the structure and function of the biosphere. These changes raise questions such as: Who and what are vulnerable to the multiple environmental changes underway, and where? Research demonstrates that vulnerability is(More)

The vulnerability framework of the Research and Assessment Systems for Sustainability Program explicitly recognizes the coupled human-environment system and accounts for interactions in the coupling affecting the system's responses to hazards and its vulnerability. This paper illustrates the usefulness of the vulnerability framework through three case(More)
There is significant heterogeneity in outcomes following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). While several host factors (age, gender, and preinjury psychiatric history) have been investigated, the influence of preinjury psychological resilience and mood status in conjunction with mild TBI remains relatively unexplored. Euthymic mood and high resilience are(More)
Surface electromyography (sEMG) is part of an instrumented gait assessment, however, the interpretation of the data in a clinically meaningful manner is often limited to the extraction of individual sEMG characteristics. The purpose of this study was to develop an assessment methodology using sEMG time and frequency characteristics extracted using wavelet(More)
OBJECTIVE Injury and shock lead to alterations in conventional coagulation tests (CCTs). Recently, rapid thrombelastography (r-TEG) has become recognized as a comprehensive assessment of coagulation abnormalities. We have previously shown that admission r-TEG results are available faster than CCTs and predict pulmonary embolism. We hypothesized that r-TEGs(More)
fMRI investigation on the neural substrates involved in tactile imagery is reported. Healthy subjects performed mental imagery of tactile stimulation on the dorsal aspect of the right hand. The results were compared with the regions of activation during the actual tactile stimulation. During imagery, contralateral primary and secondary somatosensory areas(More)
Pediatric musculoskeletal infections are common disorders that can result in significant disability. Because the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of infections of the bones, joints, and soft tissues have continued to improve over time, it is important for orthopaedic surgeons to have an understanding of the etiology, diagnosis, basic treatment(More)
