Previous research suggests that demographic factors are important correlates of cognitive functioning in African Americans; however, less attention has been given to the influence of personality. The present study explored how dimensions and facets of personality predicted individual variability in cognition in a sample of older African Americans from the(More)
This study examined the fluid-crystallized distinction of cognitive abilities in African Americans. We analyzed the factorial invariance of a battery of cognitive ability measures in a sample of 197 community-dwelling African American elders. Specifically, factorial invariance was tested in groups of African American elders differing in age (50-61 years,(More)

Endoscopic polypectomy is associated with a small but definite risk of bleeding and perforation. Patients with large adenomas are thus usually hospitalized for endoscopic resection. In order to evaluate whether these procedures can be performed in the setting of one day surgery, we retrospectively analyzed the complications and results of polypectomy done(More)
High p T nonphotonic electron production in p þ p collisions at ffiffi ffi s p ¼ 200 GeV We present the measurement of nonphotonic electron production at high transverse momentum (p T > 2:5 GeV=c) in p þ p collisions at ffiffi ffi s p ¼ 200 GeV using data recorded during 2005 and 2008 by the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).
