There is considerable support for the view that aerobic exercise may confer cognitive benefits to mild cognitively impaired elderly persons. However, the biological mechanisms mediating these effects are not entirely clear. As a preliminary step towards informing this gap in knowledge, we enrolled older adults confirmed to have mild cognitive impairment(More)
OBJECTIVES To display time-series firing rate and recruitment data for multiple, simultaneously active motoneurons activating human laryngeal muscles. These data provide specific information about how laryngeal muscle force is being controlled by the central nervous system at the level of the lower motoneuron. METHODS A quadrifilar needle electrode was(More)
This study presents convergent support for the use of three empirically constructed factors, across four samples, from the Ways of Coping Questionnaire. Planning, Positive Reappraisal, and Distancing factors were congruent for comparisons made between U.S. healthcare workers, Chinese healthcare workers, Chinese teachers, and Taiwanese teachers.

Motor vehicle accident fatalities are a cause for concern internationally; all drivers need to selectively attend to environmental changes, and to react swiftly and appropriately. The focus of the present paper was to investigate the effect of stature and seat positioning on fractionated response time. Eighty four young South African adults spanning a range(More)
Responses to simulated cross-country skiing were measured using the V-Scope, a new telemetric ultrasound motion monitor. Ten young male adults performed a total of 45 minutes of distributed practice on a Nordic-Track ski simulator. Over a period of three 15-minute sessions cadence and velocity were unchanged. Step and stride lengths decreased significantly(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to estimate 4-year healthcare costs associated with the metabolic profile of patients before and after 1 year of treatment with phentermine (15 mg) and topiramate extended-release (92 mg) [phentermine-topiramate ER]. DESIGN AND METHODS Using a medical records database, we created two patient cohorts reflecting metabolic(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Wave propagation Filled rock joint Thin-layer interface model Displacement discontinuity method Stress-closure relation The present study essentially employs a thin-layer interface model for filled rock joints to analyze wave propagation across the jointed rock masses. The thin-layer interface model treats the rough-surfaced(More)
