Recent literature suggests that the brain in multiple sclerosis (MS) undergoes reorganization that subserves the performance of visual and motor tasks. We identified sites of cerebral activity in 16 MS patients while performing a covert attention (CA) task, presented in the auditory modality. Positron emission tomography (PET) revealed activation of(More)
BACKGROUND Studies addressing the effects of aerobic exercise and a prudent diet on lipid and lipoprotein concentrations in adults have reached conflicting conclusions. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of aerobic exercise combined with a prudent diet on lipid and lipoprotein concentrations in adults. METHODS Studies were located by(More)
OBJECTIVE In this cohort of individuals with and without multiple sclerosis (MS), we illustrate some of the novel approaches that smartphones provide to monitor patients with chronic neurologic disorders in their natural setting. METHODS Thirty-eight participant pairs (MS and cohabitant) aged 18-55 years participated in the study. Each participant(More)
Multi-modal learning is a feature of educational provision at Swinburne University of Technology's Lilydale Campus. Academic staff expect a high level of computer and information literacy from all students, and also have the expectation that library staff are well equipped to support this. To that end, library staff are responsible for the design, delivery(More)
PRELIMINARIES This note embodies our analyses of the performance of the ALEMBIC system in the MUC-4 evaluation task. These analyses have provided us with a reasonably good understanding of the principal factors contributing to the system's correct responses and to its errors. This understanding is based in part on interpretations of the performance measures(More)
This study used the aggregate data meta-analytic approach to determine the combined effects of aerobic exercise and diet on lipids and lipoproteins in overweight and obese adults. Twelve studies representing 859 men and women (443 intervention, 416 control) were included. Using random-effects models, statistically significant, intervention minus control(More)
