The development and evaluation of time-resolved (minutes) measurement technologies to characterize the physical and chemical make up of ambient aerosols/particulate matter in the atmosphere are essential to our improved understanding of aerosol process science, source attribution, and population exposure. During the PMTACS-NY summer 2001 campaign in(More)
We have investigated an aerosol processing and evolution event from 21–22 July during the summer 2009 Field Intensive Study at Queens College in New York City (NYC). The evolution processes are characterized by three consecutive stages: (1) aerosol wet scavenging, (2) night-time nitrate formation, and (3) photochemical production and evolution of secondary(More)
The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) is one of the most widely used scales for the evaluation of anxiety in medical and, to a lesser extent, psychiatric patients. Although there is a relatively large amount of STAI data about anxiety for individuals with a variety of psychiatric disorders, the results of many anxiety studies include only state or trait(More)
We studied the use of the Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90) to differentiate between specific anxiety and depressive disorders and/or their symptoms in 280 patients with 6 DSM-III-R diagnoses: major depression (MD), panic disorder (PD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social phobia (SP), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and mixed anxiety and depression(More)
Relative movement and force transmission between osseointegrated (OI) implants in the premolar regions of the edentulous mandible have been measured using intraoral transducers linked to OI implants. These have shown deformations of up to 420 microns and force transmission of up to 16 N as a result of jaw movement from the rest position. Greater(More)
We used the Bond Defense Style and Cloninger Tridimensional Personality questionnaires to assess defense styles and personality dimensions in subjects with anxiety and depressive disorders. When measured against a comparison group, maladaptive defense style scores were significantly higher in those with major depression, panic disorder, generalized anxiety(More)
BACKGROUND Functional impairment scales are increasingly used to evaluate subjects with a variety of mental disorders. METHODS We evaluated the work, social, and family disabilities of 228 subjects with 6 common anxiety and depressive disorders, as assessed by the Sheehan Disability Scale (major depression, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder,(More)
We studied Levenson's Internal (I), Powerful Others (P), and Chance (C) locus of control scales in 193 patients with six DSM-III-R diagnoses: Major Depression (MD), Panic Disorder (PD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Phobia (SP), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Mixed Anxiety Depressive Disorder (MAD). Compared to the comparison groups(More)
