BACKGROUND Although many school-based diet and physical activity interventions have been designed and evaluated, relatively few have been tested for the after-school setting. After-school day-care programmes at either elementary schools or private locations provide a ready-made opportunity for health programmes that may be difficult to incorporate into an(More)
To compare matched paliperidone-ER- and olanzapine-treated schizophrenic patients on measures of glucose and lipid metabolism. Eighty hospitalized patients with schizophrenia (DSM-IV) were randomly assigned to treatment with paliperidone ER or olanzapine for a period of 12 weeks. At baseline and every 4 weeks, we assessed weight, subcutaneous fat, waist and(More)
We examined the concurrent and predictive validity of stages of change and susceptibility to smoking with respect to smoking onset among adolescents. We also sought to determine whether concurrent use of the two constructs, in the form of an integrated stage/susceptibility index, would predict adolescent smoking acquisition better than eithe r construct(More)
Recent imaging studies have shown that brain morphology and neural activity during sexual arousal differ between homosexual and heterosexual men. However, functional differences in neural networks at the resting state is unknown. The study is to characterize the association of homosexual preference with measures of regional homogeneity and functional(More)
Clarithromycin and rabeprazole are both valued for their safety profile. Very few cases of adverse side-effects related to these drugs, when given individually, have been reported; serious side-effects of clarithromycin in combination with rabeprazole have never been reported. The present case reports on a 51-year-old woman with gastritis who received(More)
Few studies demonstrated neural circuits related to disgust were influenced by internal sexual orientation in male. Here we used fMRI to study the neural responses to disgust in homosexual and heterosexual men to investigate that issue. Thirty-two healthy male volunteers (sixteen homosexual and sixteen heterosexual) were scanned while viewing alternating(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to explore differences in links between negative symptoms and neurocognitive deficits in adolescent and adult patients with first-episode schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder often characterized by positive and negative symptoms, reduced emotional expression, excitatory status, and poor cognitive ability. The(More)
On the basis of analyzing the disadvantages and requirements of material supply of hydroelectric project, develops a material dispatching management information and decision support system based on both C/S model and B/S model. The three-hierarchy model and algorithm of material dispatching and the structure and function of the system are discussed in(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuroimaging studies have reported differences in brain structure and function between homosexual and heterosexual men. The neural basis for homosexual orientation, however, is still unknown. AIM This study characterized the association of homosexual preference with measures of fractional amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (fALFF) and(More)
