It is known from previous work that acupuncture stimulation modifies the somesthetic afferent to different extends depending on the acupoint studied. In this study, somatosensory evoked potentials of 21 healthy volunteers are recorded. When acupoint LI-4 (Hoku) is stimulated, it produces noticeable modifications, with a significant increase of latency and(More)
Based on the observation that repeated acupoint stimulation elicits evoked potentials whose latency varies as a result of the stimulus intensity we assessed the evoked potential elicited by stimulus of three acupoints (Hegu, Shenmen and Houxi), comparing the results to the potentials produced by median nerve stimulus and nonacupunctural point. Fourteen(More)
The change of cerebral potential P300 in relation to superior cerebral functions by means of acupuncture stimulation was studied. For this purpose, the parameters of this cerebral response after acupuncture stimulation at acupoints He-7 and LI-4, and at a non-acupuncture control point, have been assessed, both immediately after the stimulation and within(More)

Answering questions from texts are assessment and instructional activities that are frequently used in schools. Nevertheless, little is known about the strategic processes that students take while performing these tasks. We explored the amount and frequency that students initially read of a text before they answered questions pertaining to the material. In(More)
In this paper we describe a new version of a former paper-and-pencil standardized comprehension test called Test of Comprehension Processes (Vidal-Abarca, Gilabert, Martínez, & Sellés, 2007). The new version has been adapted to a computer-based environment based on the moving window technique. It can be used to assess comprehension strategies of students(More)
This paper is aimed at presenting Read&Answer, a tool that records reading times, one of the main on-line methods employed in text processing research. Read&Answer allows the recording, analysis and interpretation of the learner processing in order to test specific hypotheses and explain final comprehension results. First, we will describe the tool, and(More)
BACKGROUND Intermediate outcomes are associated with the survival of long-term haemodialysis patients; however, outcome variability across centres may result in heterogeneous quality of care. The study aim was to evaluate a multifaceted quality improvement activity (QIA) targeting several haemodialysis clinical performance measures. METHODS A total(More)
