This study establishes intratester reliability for all components of physical performance and intertester reliability for the total scores of upper and lower extremity motor performance in a cumulative numerical scoring system devised by Fugl-Meyer et al. Intertester reliability was found to be high for the total scores of upper and lower extremity motor(More)
Vegetation indices (VIs) are among the oldest tools in remote sensing studies. Although many variations exist, most of them ratio the reflection of light in the red and NIR sections of the spectrum to separate the landscape into water, soil, and vegetation. Theoretical analyses and field studies have shown that VIs are near-linearly related to(More)
Intruder DBA/2 and C57BL/6 mice, which display different neuroendocrine responses to social conflict, evidence a pronounced increase in splenocyte phagocytosis of opsonized zymosan particles as a consequence of social conflict-induced stress. Interruption of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis prior to social conflict results in an abrogation of the(More)
The effect of gravity on neuromuscular perform­ ance should be measured in most research applica­ tions and in some clinical assessments. Comparing recorded values of maximal torque generated by knee extensor and flexor muscles using the Cybex® II* isokinetic dynamometer shows that gravity signifi­ cantly affects the recordings, resulting in an(More)

* This article is adapted from a paper written in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the Master of Science Degree, Duke University, Durham, NC 27710. Ulnar neuropathy, an overuse compression syndrome injury of the ulnar nerve at the wrist, is frequently associated with bicycling. Previous studies have shown that after severe compression injury to(More)
