Strength evaluation in neuromuscle disease is necessary to track the natural history of the disease, to understand its pathophysiology, to determine the efficacy of treatment, and, most importantly, to evaluate an experimental treatment regimen. This article describes the physiology of muscle activity, discusses fatigue, examines various testing methods,(More)
The present study examined psychological coping styles and mental health treatment histories in veterans with PTSD. This study also served as a replication and extension of an earlier investigation that assessed the prevalence of PTSD in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam combat veterans who were seeking medical treatment.

OBJECTIVES To determine the effects of dietary, physiological or environmental factors on body iron levels in infants aged 4-18 months. DESIGN The daily iron intake of the infants was measured from a diet history obtained by interview using a standardised question sheet, previously validated against weighed intake (minimum 3 days) in an independent sample(More)
Benzodiazepines are commonly used medications that alter sleep spindles during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, however the topographic changes to these functionally significant waveforms have yet to be fully elucidated. This study utilized high-density electroencephalography (hdEEG) to investigate topographic changes in sleep spindles and spindle-range(More)
OBJECTIVE Changes in slow waves during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep in response to acute total sleep deprivation are well-established measures of sleep homeostasis. This investigation utilized high-density electroencephalography (hdEEG) to examine topographic changes in slow waves during repeated partial sleep deprivation. METHODS Twenty-four(More)
There are over 50 treatable conditions that can produce signs and symptoms of fatigue, weakness, sensory complaints, or muscle atrophy [Table 3]. The examiner should be able easily to identify, by history and physical examination, the affected site of the motor unit causing the patient's syndrome. Following this, by using other aspects of the history and(More)
Hypersomnolence plays an important role in the presentation, treatment and course of mood disorders. However, there has been relatively little research that examines objective measures of sleep duration and continuity in patients with depression and hypersomnolence, despite the use of these factors in sleep medicine nosological systems. This study compared(More)
