Morphological and Mechanical Properties of the Quadriceps Femoris Muscle-Tendon Unit From Adolescence to Adulthood
Effects of Age and Athletic Training
The combined effects of mechanical loading and maturation during adolescence are still not well understood. The purpose of the study was to investigate the development of the quadriceps femoris muscle-tendon unit from early ...
Neuromuscular organisation and robustness of postural control in the presence of perturbations
Perturbation-based exercise interventions challenge balance and improve reactive motor control. Our purpose was to investigate the modular organisation during a standing balance task in both stable and unstable conditions ...
Impaired Antisaccades in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Evidence From Meta-Analysis and a Large Empirical Study
Increasing evidence indicates that patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) exhibit alterations in fronto-striatal circuitry. Performance deficits in the antisaccade task would support this model, but results from ...
How to Study Chronic Diseases—Implications of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities for Research Designs
Background The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) has been received considerable attention internationally. Methods The Convention’s main arguments are conceptually analyzed. Implications ...
Intra-saccadic motion streaks as cues to linking object locations across saccades
When visual objects shift rapidly across the retina, they produce motion blur. Intra-saccadic visual signals, caused incessantly by our own saccades, are thought to be eliminated at early stages of visual processing. Here ...
Short Versus Long Scales in Clinical Assessment: Exploring the Trade-Off Between Resources Saved and Psychometric Quality Lost Using Two Measures of Obsessive–Compulsive Symptoms
Short measures of psychological constructs are routinely used to save assessment time and cost. The downside is a trade-off between resource savings and psychometric quality. When evaluating tests, a pragmatic strategy is ...
Hemorheology and renal function during cardiopulmonary bypass in infants
Background: Acute renal failure is an occasional complication after cardiopulmonary bypass in infants. Whereas it is well known that postoperative hemodynamics inflict acute renal failure, the influence of extra-corporeal ...
Cyanotic nephropathy and use of non-ionic contrast agents during cardiac catherization in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease
Background: Chronic cyanosis with its associated rheologic changes is a known risk factor for glomerular nephropathy. Therefore, contrast-induced nephrotoxicity should be an important consideration for angiographers ...
Transfer Effects to a Multimodal Dual-Task after Working Memory Training and Associated Neural Correlates in Older Adults
A Pilot Study
Working memory (WM) performance declines with age. However, several studies have shown that WM training may lead to performance increases not only in the trained task, but also in untrained cognitive transfer tasks. It has ...
Wheel running behaviour in group-housed female mice indicates disturbed wellbeing due to DSS colitis
Voluntary wheel running (VWR) behaviour is a sensitive indicator of disturbed wellbeing and used for the assessment of individual experimental severity levels in laboratory mice. However, monitoring individual VWR performance ...
