Cranial kinesis in the miniaturised lizard (Squamata: Scincidae).

J Exp Biol 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

National Museum of Natural History, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, 1 Tsar Osvoboditel Blvd., 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria.

Cranial kinesis refers to intracranial movements in the vertebrate skull that do not concern the jaw joint, the middle ear, or the hypobranchial skeleton. Different kinds of cranial kinesis have been reported for lizards, including mesokinesis, metakinesis, amphikinesis (simultaneous meso- and metakinesis), and streptostyly. Streptostyly is considered relatively widespread within lizards, while mesokinesis has been documented only for geckos, varanids, and anguids. Read More

Adductor focal laryngeal Dystonia: correlation between clinicians' ratings and subjects' perception of Dysphonia.

J Clin Mov Disord 2017 13;4:20. Epub 2017 Dec 13.

Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Neurology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, Center for Voice and Swallowing Disorders, 425 West 59th Street, New York, NY 10019 USA.

Background: Although considerable research has focused on the etiology and symptomology of adductor focal laryngeal dystonia (AD-FLD), little is known about the correlation between clinicians' ratings and patients' perception of this voice disturbance. This study has five objectives: first, to determine if there is a relationship between subjects' symptom-severity and its impact on their quality of life; to compare clinicians' ratings with subjects' perception of the individual characteristics and severity of AD-FLD; to document the subjects' perception of changes in dysphonia since diagnosis; to record the frequency of voice arrest during connected speech; and, finally, to calculate inter-clinician reliability based on results from the Unified Spasmodic Dysphonia Rating Scale (USDRS) (Stewart et al, J Voice 1195-10, 1997).

Estimating cranial musculoskeletal constraints in theropod dinosaurs.

R Soc Open Sci 2015 Nov 4;2(11):150495. Epub 2015 Nov 4.

School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol , Life Sciences Building, 24 Tyndall Avenue, Bristol BS8 1TQ, UK.

Many inferences on the biology, behaviour and ecology of extinct vertebrates are based on the reconstruction of the musculature and rely considerably on its accuracy. Although the advent of digital reconstruction techniques has facilitated the creation and testing of musculoskeletal hypotheses in recent years, muscle strain capabilities have rarely been considered. Here, a digital modelling approach using the freely available visualization and animation software Blender is applied to estimate cranial muscle length changes and optimal and maximal possible gape in different theropod dinosaurs.

RELIABILITY OF TWO METHODS OF CLINICAL EXAMINATION OF THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE HIP ADDUCTOR MUSCLES.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2015 Dec;10(7):976-83

Faculty of Medicine, University of Murcia. Department of Traumatology, V. de la Arrixaca University Hospital, Murcia, Spain.

Background: An inadequate level of flexibility of the adductor muscles is one of the most critical risk factors for chronic groin pain and strains. However, measurement methods of adductor muscle flexibility are not well defined.

Purpose: To determine the inter-session reliability of the biarticular and monoarticular adductor muscle flexibility measures obtained from passive hip abduction with the knee flexed over the edge of the plinth test (PHA) and the passive hip abduction test at 90° of hip flexion (PHA90°). Read More

J Morphol 2015 Oct 21;276(10):1230-43. Epub 2015 Jul 21.

School of Science and Technology, University of New England, Armidale, New South Wales, Australia.

Marsupial herbivores exhibit a wide variety of skull shapes and sizes to exploit different ecological niches. Several studies on teeth, dentaries, and jaw adductor muscles indicate that marsupial herbivores exhibit different specializations for grazing and browsing. No studies, however, have examined the skulls of marsupial herbivores to determine the relationship between stress and strain, and the evolution of skull shape. Read More

Rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries of the hip and pelvis.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2014 Nov;9(6):785-97

Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma (NISMAT), New York, NY, USA.

Unlabelled: Soft tissue injuries of the hip and pelvis are common among athletes and can result in significant time loss from sports participation. Rehabilitation of athletes with injuries such as adductor strain, iliopsoas syndrome, and gluteal tendinopathy starts with identification of known risk factors for injury and comprehensive evaluation of the entire kinetic chain. Complex anatomy and overlapping pathologies often make it difficult to determine the primary cause of the pain and dysfunction. Read More
