We obtained five simulations that used such a robot to explore verbal communication between clinical students and the robot patient, specifically if the students sought approval before(More)
Previous studies assessed elite athletes' return to sport (RTS) after hip arthroscopy, but few investigated a cohort including athletes from all levels of sport. This study compared athletes who returned to sport to those who did not, based on four patient-reported outcome (PRO) scores, including the Hip Outcome Score-Sports Specific Subscale (HOS-SSS).(More)

Ascarina lucida Hook.f. (Chloranthaceae) is a small tree species endemic to New Zealand. The distribution of A. lucida suggests an inability to survive severe frosts or droughts. Therefore, peaks in the abundance of A. lucida in pollen records have usually been interpreted as indicating periods of mild, moist climates. The environmental tolerance of A.(More)
