Abnormal substantia nigra morphology in healthy individuals, viewed with transcranial ultrasound, is a significant risk factor for Parkinson’s disease. However, little is known about the functional consequences of this abnormality (termed ‘hyperechogenicity’) on movement. The aim of the current study was to investigate hand function in healthy older adults(More)
Model-based compartmental analysis was used to interpret data on temporal changes in plasma triglyceride (TG) response to a chronic infusion of chylomicrons (CM) in the rat. Male rats were fed purified diets which varied in fat load [L = 10% (w/w), H = 30%] and P/S ratio (P = 4.6, S = 0.2). Lymph CM isolated from donor rats which were absorbing the P or S(More)
OBJECTIVE Restless legs syndrome, now called Willis-Ekbom Disease (RLS/WED), is a sensorimotor-related sleep disorder. Little is known of the effect of RLS/WED on motor function. The current study investigated upper limb function in RLS/WED patients. We hypothesised that RLS/WED patients exhibit subtle changes in tremor amplitude but normal dexterity and(More)
