Mutations in insulin/IGF-1 signaling pathway have been shown to lead to increased longevity in various invertebrate models. Therefore, the effect of the haplo-insufficiency of the IGF-1 receptor (Igf1r(+/-)) on longevity/aging was evaluated in C57Bl/6 mice using rigorous criteria where lifespan and end-of-life pathology were measured under optimal husbandry… (More)
The posterior tibial nerves of 18 rabbits were intraneurally implanted with coiled wire electrodes for up to 9 weeks to evaluate their usefulness for neuromuscular electrical stimulation. In one group an electrode was implanted and removed in one leg while the other leg was chronically implanted. A second group was chronically implanted without electrical… (More)

The potential utility of the MMPI 168 with two inpatient medical populations was explored in the present study. Correlations and clinically relevant comparisons suggested that the MMPI 168 predicted the standard MMPI with a high degree of accuracy.
Appreciation of the various cognitive deficits displayed by many chronic patients offers an alternative way of understanding each patient's predicament and an alternative way of approaching group and milieu therapies with chronic patients. Case examples taken from a test protocol based on neuropsychological testing procedures illustrate the clinical… (More)
