Although structural brain scans help assess brain injury in stroke, they cannot identify regions that are functionally disabled due to disrupted perfusion. Perfusion and functional MRI have the potential for determining the functional consequences of stroke. Here we examine the effectiveness of functional MRI to measure brain function in a single patient(More)
PURPOSE The present study investigated the extent of cortical activity during overt picture naming using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). METHOD Participants comprised 20 healthy, adult participants with ages ranging from 20 to 82 years. While undergoing fMRI, participants completed a picture-naming task consisting of 60 high-frequency nouns.(More)
Evidence suggests that individuals who report fewer total hours of sleep are more likely to be overweight or obese. Few studies have prospectively evaluated weight-loss success in relation to reported sleep quality and quantity. This analysis sought to determine the association between sleep characteristics and weight loss in overweight or obese women(More)
UNLABELLED Spaced retrieval (SR) has recently been modified to target anomia in persons with aphasia (PWA). It relies on a strict management of the inter-stimulus interval (ISI) where the time between stimulus presentations is doubled or halved based on response accuracy. Although SR is successful in treating anomia, it remains to be studied whether the(More)
