Data from the Sleep Heart Health Study (SHHS) were analyzed to determine whether SDB predicts longitudinal increase in BMI, adjusted for confounding factors. METHODS: A full-montage unattended(More)
PURPOSE Approximately 14-54% of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus without a history of major neuropsychiatric syndromes (nonNPSLE) have cognitive deficits. Elevated N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antibodies (anti-NR2) have been reported in 35% of patients with SLE, but few studies have utilized controls or a composite memory index. We(More)
PURPOSE Focal inflammatory/demyelinating lesions are thought to be the source of Wallerian degeneration or other injury to local, transiting fiber tracts in the brain or spinal cord in multiple sclerosis (MS). A methodology is established to isolate connections between focal demyelinating lesions and intersecting fibers to permit explicit analyses of the(More)
We have implemented a declarative debugger for Mercury that is capable of finding bugs in large, long-running programs. This debugger implements several search strategies. We discuss the implementation of two of these strategies and the conditions under which each strategy is useful.The divide and query strategy tries to minimize the number of questions(More)
MiniZinc arose as a response to the extended discussion at CP2006 of the need for a standard modelling language for CP. This is a challenging problem, and we believe MiniZinc makes a good attempt to handle the most obvious obstacle: there are hundreds of potential global constraints, most handled by few or no systems. We have now used Mini-Zinc for 2 years,(More)
