Timing in peak gait values shifts slightly between gait trials. When averaged, the standard deviation (S.D.) in gait data may increase due to this inter-trial variability unless normalization is carried out beforehand. The objective of this study was to determine how curve registration, an alignment technique, can reduce inter-subject variability in gait(More)
INTRODUCTION The magnitude of intra- and inter-fractional variation in the set up of breast cancer patients treated with tangential megavoltage photon beams was investigated using an electronic portal imaging device (EPID). METHODS Daily cine-EPID images were captured during delivery of the tangential fields for ten breast cancer patients treated in the(More)
Religious priming has been found to have both positive and negative consequences, and recent research suggests that the activation of God-related and community-related religious cognitions may cause outgroup prosociality and outgroup derogation respectively. The present research sought to examine whether reminders of God and religion have different effects(More)
The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis plays a key role in the physiological response to stress, preparing the organism for appropriate action. While some research has examined universally relevant threats, other research has suggested that individual differences may moderate the relationship between stress and cortisol release, such that some(More)
