To start or stop an action depends on which movement we perform: An appraisal of the horse-race model.

Acta Psychol (Amst) 2021 May 12;217:103332. Epub 2021 May 12.

Centre de Recherche Cerveau et Cognition, Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier, France.

In order to ponder how adaptive behavior and its underlying executive processes are, a central criterion in psychology is the extent to which experimental findings generalize across response types. The latency of two major acts of control, action initiation and inhibition, was evaluated using a stop-signal paradigm with two response types, involving either a finger key-press or a wrist pen-swipe response. In both conditions, 40 participants were instructed to respond quickly to a GO stimulus but to cancel their responses when a STOP signal was presented, which occurred randomly in 25% of the trials.

Braz J Anesthesiol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Assiut University, Faculty of Medicine, Anesthesia and Intensive Care Department, Assiut, Egypt.

Background: We investigated the performance of the Perfusion Index (PI) derived from pulse oximetry waveform as a tool for assessment of anesthetic depth in comparison with A-line Autoregression Index (AAI) derived from analysis of Middle-Latency Auditory Evoked Potentials (MLAEP) waveform integrated by aepEXplus monitor in children receiving sevoflurane anesthesia for tonsillectomy.

Methods: Forty-one patients (4-12 years old) were included in this study. The PI and AAI were recorded simultaneously every minute during different stages of anesthesia delivery. Read More

Bedsharing in Early Childhood: Frequency, Partner Characteristics, and Relations to Sleep.

J Genet Psychol 2021 May 14:1-20. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA.

Bedsharing (sharing a bed with others during sleep) in early childhood (3-5 years old) is common across Western and non-Western societies alike. Though prior work indicates that bedsharing may relate to impairments in child sleep quantity or quality, the majority of studies conducted in young children are limited to parent-child bedsharing and rely almost exclusively on caregiver reports to measure child sleep. Here, the authors endeavored to gain further insights into the diversity of bedsharing practices among children in the United States, including how different bedsharing partners (caregivers, siblings) might impact actigraphy-derived measures of children's sleep.

Dexterous manual movement facilitates information processing in the primary somatosensory cortex: A magnetoencephalographic study.

Eur J Neurosci 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Integrative Physiology, National Institute for Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, Japan.

The interaction between the somatosensory and motor systems is important for control of movement in humans. Cortical activity related to somatosensory response and sensory perception is modulated by the influence of movement executing mechanisms. This phenomenon has been observed as inhibition in the short-latency components of somatosensory evoked potentials and magnetic fields (SEPs/SEFs). Read More

Assessment of HCMV-encoded microRNAs in plasma as potential biomarkers in pregnant women with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Apr;9(8):638

State Key Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemistry for Life Sciences, Jiangsu Engineering Research Center for MicroRNA Biology and Biotechnology, NJU Advanced Institute for Life Sciences (NAILS), School of Life Sciences, Nanjing University, Nanjing, China.

Background: Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is the most frequent cause of congenital infections and can lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs). HCMV encodes multiple microRNAs (miRNAs) that have been reported to be partially related to host immune responses, cell cycle regulation, viral replication, and viral latency, and can be detected in human plasma. However, the relevance for HCMV-encoded miRNAs in maternal plasma as an indicator for APOs has never been evaluated. Read More

Inhibition of CCL7 derived from Mo-MDSCs prevents metastatic progression from latency in colorectal cancer.

Cell Death Dis 2021 May 13;12(5):484. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Pathology, Nanfang Hospital and Basic Medical College, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, 510515,, Guangdong Province, People's Republic of China.

In colorectal cancer (CRC), overt metastases often appear after years of latency. But the signals that cause micro-metastatic cells to remain indolent, thereby enabling them to survive for extended periods of time, are unclear. Immunofluorescence and co-immunoprecipitation assays were used to explore the co-localization of CCL7 and CCR2. Read More

The clinical effects of sleep restriction therapy for insomnia: A meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

Sleep Med Rev 2021 Apr 21;58:101493. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, UK. Electronic address:

Sleep restriction therapy (SRT) is an established treatment for insomnia that has been used in clinical practise for over 30 y. It is commonly delivered as part of multicomponent cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT-I) but has also been linked to beneficial effects as a standalone intervention. In order to quantify the efficacy of SRT we performed a comprehensive meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing SRT to minimally active or non-active control groups. Read More

EEG alterations during wake and sleep in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.

iScience 2021 Apr 1;24(4):102386. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Department of Psychology, University of Rome "Sapienza", Via dei Marsi, 78, Rome 00185, Italy.

Patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) undergo a slowing of waking electroencephalographic (EEG) rhythms since prodromal stages, which could be ascribed to poor sleep quality. We examined the relationship between wake and sleep alterations by assessing EEG activity during sleep and (pre-sleep/post-sleep) wakefulness in AD, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and healthy controls. AD and MCI show high sleep latency and less slow-wave sleep. Read More

Selective BCL-X Antagonists Eliminate Infected Cells from a Primary Cell Model of HIV Latency but not from Reservoirs.

J Virol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York NY, USA.

HIV persists, despite immune responses and antiretroviral therapy, in viral reservoirs that seed rebound viremia if therapy is interrupted. Previously, we showed that the BCL-2 protein contributes to HIV persistence by conferring a survival advantage to reservoir-harboring cells. Here, we demonstrate that many of the BCL-2 family members are overexpressed in HIV-infected CD4 T-cells, indicating increased tension between pro-apoptotic and pro-survival family members - and suggesting that inhibition of pro-survival members may disproportionately affect the survival of HIV-infected cells.

Risk and outcome of subsequent malignancies after radioactive iodine treatment in differentiated thyroid cancer patients.

BMC Cancer 2021 May 13;21(1):543. Epub 2021 May 13.

Xin Hua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

Background: We identified differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) survivors from SEER registries and performed Poisson regression to calculate the relative risks (RRs) of subsequent malignancies (SMs) by different sites associated with radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment, and the attributable risk proportion of RAI for developing different SMs.

Auditory evoked potentials: Differences by sex, race, and menstrual cycle and correlations with common psychoacoustical tasks.

PLoS One 2021 12;16(5):e0251363. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, University of Texas, Austin, Texas, United States of America.

Auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) and auditory middle-latency responses (AMLRs) to a click stimulus were measured in about 100 subjects. Of interest were the sex differences in those auditory evoked potentials (AEPs), the correlations between the various AEP measures, and the correlations between the AEP measures and measures of otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) and behavioral performance also measured on the same subjects. Also of interest was how the menstrual cycle affected the various AEP measures. Read More
