OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between white matter abnormalities and impairment of gait and balance in older persons. METHODS Quantitative MRI was used to evaluate the brain tissue compartments of 28 older individuals separated into normal and impaired groups on the basis of mobility performance testing using the Short Physical Performance(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral cortical potentials can be evoked by stance perturbation, and there is speculation that they represent the activation of supraspinal centers in preparation for the control and coordination of motor movements that maintain balance. We sought to determine if these potentials differed in old people at risk of falls. METHODS Cortical(More)
The ability of the perforant path/dentate granule cell synapse of the hippocampal formation to establish and maintain enhanced levels of synaptic transmission in response to tetanization (long-term potentiation, LTP) was investigated in freely moving rats at 15, 30, and 90 days of age. Measures of 1) the slope of the population excitatory postsynaptic(More)
BACKGROUND Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVRS) and other electronic data collection methods have begun to replace conventional paper diaries as a way to capture daily patient reports. However, these methods have not been compared in head and neck (H&N) cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. METHODS 15 subjects with H&N cancer were asked to(More)
The purpose of our study was to evaluate all contact pressures between the molded ankle-foot orthosis (MAFO) and the subject during activities of daily living. The MAFOs studied are used clinically to reduce plantar contact pressures associated with foot ulcers in adult neuropathic diabetic subjects, alleviating abnormal pressures by redistributing them to(More)
The magnitude and duration of long-term potentiation (LTP) of perforant path/dentate granule cell synapses was examined in freely moving rats beginning at 15 days of age. Measures of dentate granule cell population EPSP slope and population spike amplitude (PSA) obtained before and after tetanization were used to evaluate the level of LTP. Tetanization(More)
