The Montreal Cognitive Assessment After Omission of Hearing-Dependent Subtests: Psychometrics and Clinical Recommendations.

J Am Geriatr Soc 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

Objectives: Hearing loss (HL) is the third most common chronic health condition in older adults, yet it is often undiagnosed and/or untreated. Given the association between HL and cognitive impairment, it is expected that many people undergoing cognitive screening may have HL. The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) is a brief screening test that assesses a wide range of cognitive functions sensitive to Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

Enantiomeric resolution, thermodynamic parameters, and modeling of clausenamidone and neoclausenamidone on polysaccharide-based chiral stationary phases.

Chirality 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

College of Pharmacy, Guangdong Pharmaceutical University, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, People's Republic of China.

The aim of the paper is to describe a new synthesis route to obtain synthetic optically active clausenamidone and neoclausenamidone and then use high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to determine the optical purities of these isomers. In the process, we investigated the different chromatographic conditions so as to provide the best separation method. At the same time, a thermodynamic study and molecular simulations were also carried out to validate the experimental results; a brief probe into the separation mechanism was also performed.

Problem-solving intervention to prevent depression in non-professional caregivers: a randomized controlled trial with 8 years of follow-up.

Psychol Med 2019 Apr 24:1-8. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychobiology,University of Santiago de Compostela,Santiago de Compostela,Spain.

Background: Studies of psychological interventions for the prevention of depression have found significant effects in the short-term, but the long-term efficacy has yet to be determined. This study evaluated the 8-year effect of a randomized controlled trial for indicated prevention of depression in female caregivers.

Methods: A total of 173 non-professional female caregivers with subclinical depressive symptoms not meeting criteria for a major depressive episode (MDE) were randomized to either a brief problem-solving intervention (n = 89) or usual-care control group (n = 84). Read More

Parvalbumin-immunoreactive cells in the olfactory bulb of the pigeon: Comparison with the rat.

Anat Histol Embryol 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Neurobiology, School of Medicine, Kangwon National University, Chuncheon, Republic of Korea.

The olfactory bulb (OB) shows special characteristics in its phylogenetic cortical structure and synaptic pattern. In the OB, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, is secreted from GABAergic neurons which contain parvalbumin (a calcium-binding protein). Many studies on the distribution of parvalbumin-immunoreactive neurons in the rodent OB have been published but poorly reported in the avian OB. Read More

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, USA.

Estrogen signaling plays an important role in the pathophysiology of prostatic hyperplasia. While signaling through estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1) increases proliferation of stromal cells, estrogen receptor beta (ESR2) plays an anti-proliferative and differentiating role in glandular epithelium. Disruption of ESR2 signaling resulted in prostatic glandular hyperplasia in the rat. Read More

Academic Unit of Reproductive and Developmental Medicine, Department of Oncology and Metabolism, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, S10 2SF, United Kingdom.

Primordial follicles, consisting of granulosa cell (GC)-enveloped oocytes are maintained in a state of developmental arrest until activated to grow. The mechanism that operates to maintain this arrested state in GCs is currently unknown. Here, we show the TGFβ-activated transcription factor SMAD3 is expressed in primordial GC nuclei alongside the cell cycle proteins, cyclin D2 (CCND2) and P27. Read More

Background: The gateway hypothesis (and particularly the prediction of developmental stages in drug abuse) has been a subject of protracted debate since the 1970s. Extensive research has gone into this subject, but has yielded contradictory findings. We propose an algorithm for detecting both association and causation relationships given a discrete sequence of events, which we believe will be useful in addressing the validity of the gateway hypothesis.

Objective: Survey research has enjoyed an increase in popularity, in part due to the availability of user-friendly software programs for online survey development and deployment. Neuropsychologists often use this methodology to learn about common clinical practices and attitudes in the field or to assess outcomes for patients. This paper aims to provide an overview of sound methods and common problems in survey research, along with specific recommendations for neuropsychologists wishing to conduct their own surveys or judge the quality of survey research.

Department of Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Biology Centre (EBC), Science for Life Laboratory, Uppsala University, SE-752 36 Uppsala, Sweden.

Avian genomes have perplexed researchers by being conservative in both size and rearrangements, while simultaneously holding the blueprints for a massive species radiation during the last 65 million years (My). Transposable elements (TEs) in bird genomes are relatively scarce but have been implicated as important hotspots for chromosomal inversions. In zebra finch (), long terminal repeat (LTR) retrotransposons have proliferated and are positively associated with chromosomal breakpoint regions. Read More

3D Bioprinting in Skeletal Muscle Tissue Engineering.

Small 2019 Apr 23:e1805530. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Center for Minimally Invasive Therapeutics (C-MIT), Department of Radiological Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, 90095, USA.

Skeletal muscle tissue engineering (SMTE) aims at repairing defective skeletal muscles. Until now, numerous developments are made in SMTE; however, it is still challenging to recapitulate the complexity of muscles with current methods of fabrication. Here, after a brief description of the anatomy of skeletal muscle and a short state-of-the-art on developments made in SMTE with "conventional methods," the use of 3D bioprinting as a new tool for SMTE is in focus.

J Behav Med 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Population Health Research Institute, St George's, University of London, Cranmer Terrace, London, SW17 0RE, UK.

A pilot-randomised controlled trial (RCT) examined the effects of a brief mindfulness-based intervention (MBI) on persistent pain patients and assessed the feasibility of conducting a definitive RCT. A brief (15 min) mindfulness body-scan audio was compared with an active control administered in a clinic and then used independently over 1 month. Immediate effects of the intervention were assessed with brief measures of pain severity, distraction and distress. Read More

Dynamics of thymol dietary supplementation in quail (): Dataset on thymol bioavailability, egg yolk fatty acids profile and performance traits.

Data Brief 2019 Jun 30;24:103884. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas y Naturales, Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología de los Alimentos (ICTA), Córdoba, Argentina.

Dietary supplementation with thymol (2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol) has been proposed as a strategy to improve modern intensive poultry production. Moreover, its antioxidant properties and potential beneficial influence on lipid metabolism have fostered current research focusing on enhancing nutritional quality of meat and egg products. In general, studies have focused on the overall effects of dietary supplementation once the supplementation protocol has finished and using only one potential dose, without actually measuring bioactive compounds' concentration in the diet supplied or target tissues.
