We studied the effects of practice of an unusual two-hand finger force production task on electromyographic and force responses to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Prior to practice, force production by a hand resulted in decreased TMS-induced responses in the other hand. After practice, fingers that were explicitly required to produce force during(More)
BACKGROUND Concern regarding the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of long-term survivors of thyroid cancer has risen due to the rapid increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer, which generally has an excellent prognosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the status of HRQOL in disease-free survivors of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) and(More)
We studied changes in multi-finger synergies associated with predictable and unpredictable force perturbations applied to a finger during a multi-finger constant total force production task. The main hypothesis was that indices of multi-finger synergies can show anticipatory changes in preparation for a predictable perturbation. Subjects sat in a chair and(More)
Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is an autosomal dominant hereditary disorder that is difficult to diagnose because of its rarity and variable clinical features. The magnitude of RTH is caused by mutations in the thyroid hormone receptor beta (TR beta) gene. We recently treated a 38-yr-old woman with RTH who had incidental papillary thyroid carcinoma.(More)
BACKGROUND Airway responsiveness after acute inhalation of ozone is related to the concentration and duration of ozone exposure. Using barometric whole-body plethysmography and increase in enhanced pause (Penh) as an index of airway obstruction, we measured the response of BALB/c mice to acute ozone inhalation to study the time course change of pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND The existence of an association between lung function and metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been debated in cases involving non-obese subjects. To address this debate, we performed a cross-sectional study to investigate the association between lung function and MetS in both obese and non-obese populations. METHODS The present study consisted of a(More)
Follicular and Hürthle cell thyroid cancers account for about one fifth of thyroid cancers in the United States. Diagnosis can be difficult, despite the use of fine needle biopsy, and surgery is often necessary to make a definitive diagnosis. Total thyroidectomy is the treatment of choice, and in the case of follicular cancer, radioiodine ablation is(More)
We studied the dependence between voluntary motion of a finger and pressing forces produced by the tips of other fingers of the hand. Participants moved one of the fingers (task finger) of the right hand trying to follow a cyclic, ramp-like flexion-extension template at different frequencies. The other fingers (slave fingers) were restricted from moving;(More)
We investigated the vitamin D status of Korean women during pregnancy and assessed the effects of vitamin D deficiency on two pregnancy outcomes; preterm births and the births of small for gestational age. We measured the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in 220 pregnant Korean women who were recruited prospectively and compared these levels with those of(More)
BACKGROUND The average dietary sodium intake of Koreans is 2.6 times higher than the World Health Organization's recommended amount. The effect of a diet high in sodium on the skeletal system, especially osteoporosis, has not previously been examined in Korean postmenopausal women with low bone mass. We assessed the daily sodium intake, and determined the(More)
