We analysed the predictive factors for relatively good prognosis in the patients with total anterior circulation infarction (TACI) defined by the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project. One hundred patients with first-ever ischemic stroke within 6 hours of onset were enrolled. Outcomes were assessed at 3 months using the modified Rankin Scale (mRS), and rated(More)
We used eye-surface temperature and heart rate as simple, noninvasive physiological indices to evaluate dogs’ responses to an approaching person.

We set up two types of approach (smiling and expressionless) by(More)
