OBJECTIVES Television viewing and physical inactivity increase the risk of obesity in youth. Thus, identifying new interventions that increase physical activity and reduce television viewing would be helpful in the prevention and treatment of pediatric obesity. This study evaluated the effects of open-loop feedback plus reinforcement versus open-loop(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the relationship between changes in physical activity (PA), sedentary behavior, and physical self-perceptions and global self-worth in 30, 8-12 years old, overweight/obese children (13 boys, 17 girls). METHODS Secondary analyses from a randomized controlled trial designed to increase PA and reduce sedentary behavior. PA was measured(More)
Classical conditioning of the eye-blink reflex in the rabbit is a form of motor learning that is uniquely dependent on the cerebellum. The cerebellar learning hypothesis proposes that plasticity subserving eye-blink conditioning occurs in the cerebellum. The major evidence for this hypothesis originated from studies based on a telecommunications network(More)
Granulocytic sarcoma (chloroma) is a rare tumor almost always associated with leukemia. Intraaxial brain lesions are rare, and can mimic infection or primary neoplasm. This intracerebellar chloroma arose after autologous bone marrow transplantation in a 29-year-old woman with leukemia. On T1-weighted MR images, the lesion was isointense with gray matter,(More)
A retrospective study was done to determine if specific electromyographic findings are present in spinal arachnoiditis. The electromyographic (emg) findings in 32 surgically and 35 myelographically diagnosed cases were examined. The cases were categorized into 3 groups. The 1st groups consisted of 37 cases with surgical or myelographic evidence believed to(More)
This article reviews the biological plausibility and evidence for the use of a low triggering dose of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the prevention of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). A systematic search of the literature revealed very little published data for or against the use of low-dose hCG in the prevention of OHSS after assisted(More)
Rabbits (Flemish giant x French lop-eared) exposed to 300 to 500 tsetses (Glossina morsitans morsitans Westw.) a day, 2 or 3 days a week, did not show significant differences from littermates receiving no exposure, with respect to weight changes, haematocrits, red and white blood cell counts or whole blood clotting times. In other rabbits, the same daily(More)
