Aortic neck IFU violations during EVAR for ruptured infrarenal aortic aneurysms are associated with increased in-hospital mortality.

Ann Vasc Surg 2021 May 2. Epub 2021 May 2.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Objective: Vascular surgeons treating patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) must make rapid treatment decisions and sometimes lack immediate access to endovascular devices meeting the anatomic specifications of the patient at hand. We hypothesized that endovascular treatment of rAAA (rEVAR) outside manufacturer instructions-for-use (IFU) guidelines would have similar in-hospital mortality compared to patients treated on-IFU or with an infrarenal clamp during open repair (rOAR).

Methods: Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) datasets for endovascular and open aortic repair were queried for patients presenting with ruptured infrarenal AAA between 2013-2018. Read More

Making moral principles suit yourself.

Psychon Bull Rev 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Department of Philosophy, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, Duke University, Durham, NC, 27708, USA.

Normative ethical theories and religious traditions offer general moral principles for people to follow. These moral principles are typically meant to be fixed and rigid, offering reliable guides for moral judgment and decision-making. In two preregistered studies, we found consistent evidence that agreement with general moral principles shifted depending upon events recently accessed in memory. Read More

Expect the Worst! Expectations and Social Interactive Decision Making.

Brain Sci 2021 Apr 29;11(5). Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Radboud University Nijmegen, 6525 AJ Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Psychological studies have demonstrated that expectations can have substantial effects on choice behavior, although the role of expectations on social decision making in particular has been relatively unexplored. To broaden our knowledge, we examined the role of expectations on decision making when interacting with new game partners and then also in a subsequent interaction with the same partners. To perform this, 38 participants played an Ultimatum Game (UG) in the role of responders and were primed to expect to play with two different groups of proposers, either those that were relatively fair (a tendency to propose an equal split-the high expectation condition) or unfair (with a history of offering unequal splits-the low expectation condition).

Mechanisms for handling nested dependencies in neural-network language models and humans.

Cognition 2021 Apr 30:104699. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit, CEA, INSERM, Université Paris-Saclay, NeuroSpin center, 91191 Gif/Yvette, France; Collège de France, Université Paris-Sciences-Lettres (PSL), 11 Place Marcelin Berthelot, 75005 Paris, France.

Recursive processing in sentence comprehension is considered a hallmark of human linguistic abilities. However, its underlying neural mechanisms remain largely unknown. We studied whether a modern artificial neural network trained with "deep learning" methods mimics a central aspect of human sentence processing, namely the storing of grammatical number and gender information in working memory and its use in long-distance agreement (e.

Mapping Unobserved Item-Respondent Interactions: A Latent Space Item Response Model with Interaction Map.

Psychometrika 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.


Classic item response models assume that all items with the same difficulty have the same response probability among all respondents with the same ability. These assumptions, however, may very well be violated in practice, and it is not straightforward to assess whether these assumptions are violated, because neither the abilities of respondents nor the difficulties of items are observed. An example is an educational assessment where unobserved heterogeneity is present, arising from unobserved variables such as cultural background and upbringing of students, the quality of mentorship and other forms of emotional and professional support received by students, and other unobserved variables that may affect response probabilities.

A Head-to-Head Comparison of the Standard Quality-Adjusted Life Year Model With the Annual Profile Model.

Value Health 2021 May 12;24(5):707-713. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Public Health, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Objectives: The standard quality-adjusted life year (QALY) model (SQM) assumes time-utility independence within constant health states and additive independence when health varies over time. The validity of SQM has been challenged through reported violations of these assumptions. An alternative approach that relaxes these assumptions is to assign a single valuation to an entire health profile: an integral assessment of disease severity over time. Read More

Positive and negative prediction error signals to violated expectations of face and place stimuli distinctively activate FFA and PPA.

Neuroimage 2021 Apr 27:118028. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Department of Psychology, University of Muenster, Muenster, Germany; Otto Creutzfeldt Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Muenster, Muenster, Germany.

Surprising scenarios can have different behavioural and neuronal consequences depending on the violation of the expectation. On the one hand, previous research has shown that the omission of a visual stimulus results in a robust cortical response representing that missing stimulus, a so-called negative prediction error. On the other hand, a large amount of studies revealed positive prediction error signals, entailing an increased neural response that can be attributed to the experience of a surprising, unexpected stimulus.

[Problems of updating the procedures for the provision of medical care used in diseases of the ear and mastoid, throat and nose].

D O Roshchin

Vestn Otorinolaringol 2021 ;86(2):99-103

National Research Institute of Public Health named after N.A. Semashko of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

The procedures for the provision of medical care in otorhinolaryngology and audiology-otorhinolaryngology contain a large number of requirements. The actualization of the orders has not been carried out for a long time, which is due to the lack of methodological formalized approaches for the formation of hypotheses regarding expedient changes. The article proposes an analysis of the results of state control, which will allow the formation of specific proposals for assessment by experts in the framework of the process of updating the procedures for the provision of medical care.

Area under the expiratory flow-volume curve: predicted values by regression and deep learning methods and recommendations for clinical practice.

BMJ Open Respir Res 2021 Apr;8(1)

Cleveland Clinic, Education Institute, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Background: In spirometry, the area under expiratory flow-volume curve (AEX-FV) was found to perform well in diagnosing and stratifying physiologic impairments, potentially lessening the need for complex lung volume testing. Expanding on prior work, this study assesses the accuracy and the utility of several models of estimating AEX-FV based on forced vital capacity (FVC) and several instantaneous flows. These models could be incorporated in regular spirometry reports, especially when actual AEX-FV measurements are not available. Read More

Impaired Audiovisual Representation of Phonemes in Children with Developmental Language Disorder.

Brain Sci 2021 Apr 16;11(4). Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Statistics, Purdue University, 250 N. University Street, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2066, USA.

We examined whether children with developmental language disorder (DLD) differed from their peers with typical development (TD) in the degree to which they encode information about a talker's mouth shape into long-term phonemic representations. Children watched a talker's face and listened to rare changes from [i] to [u] or the reverse. In the neutral condition, the talker's face had a closed mouth throughout. Read More

How Self-Control Predicts Moral Decision Making: An Exploratory Study on Healthy Participants.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 Apr 6;18(7). Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Cognitive Science, University of Messina, 98122 Messina, Italy.

Research on moral reasoning calls into question self-control, which encompasses impulsivity, compulsivity, and inhibitory control. However, a thorough investigation exploring how these three dimensions can affect moral reasoning in response to different scenarios is unavailable. We addressed this topic by testing the predictive role of these three dimensions of self-control on appraisals for ethical violations related with different types of scenarios. Read More

Health Misinformation about Toxic-Site Harm: The Case for Independent-Party Testing to Confirm Safety.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 Apr 7;18(8). Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Economics, University of Notre Dame, 3060 Jenkins Nanovic Hall, Notre Dame, IN 46556, USA.

Health misinformation can cause harm if regulators or private remediators falsely claim that a hazardous facility is safe. This misinformation especially threatens the health of children, minorities, and poor people, disproportionate numbers of whom live near toxic facilities. Yet, perhaps because of financial incentives, private remediators may use safety misinformation to justify reduced cleanup. Read More

Explaining risky choices with judgments: Framing, the zero effect, and the contextual relativity of gist.

J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Human Development.

Contemporary theories of decision-making are compared with respect to their predictions about the judgments that are hypothesized to underlie risky choice framing effects. Specifically, we compare predictions of psychophysical models, such as prospect theory, to the cognitive representational approach of fuzzy-trace theory in which the presence or absence of zero is key to framing effects. Three experiments implemented a high-power design in which many framing problems were administered to participants, who rated the attractiveness of either the certain or risky options. Read More

Sanctioned licensing board violations for marriage and family therapists spanning a 10-year period.

J Marital Fam Ther 2021 Apr 28. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

School of Child and Family Sciences, The University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, MS, USA.

Although disciplinary data on violations committed by licensed mental health professionals are important information for training programs, supervisors, and regulators, little disciplinary information is available on licensed marriage and family therapists (MFTs). This study collected data publicly available from state regulatory board websites and open records requests from 35 states for a total of 1241 separate cases, 889 of which were from CA. The findings indicated that the five most common violations for MFTs in 34 states (not including CA) were nonsexual dual relationships, failure to meet CE hour requirements, sexual dual relationships, unlicensed practice, and misrepresentation on licensing applications or renewals.

Boom-bust population dynamics increase diversity in evolving competitive communities.

Commun Biol 2021 Apr 23;4(1):502. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Physics Department, University of Santiago of Chile (USACH), Santiago, Chile.

The processes and mechanisms underlying the origin and maintenance of biological diversity have long been of central importance in ecology and evolution. The competitive exclusion principle states that the number of coexisting species is limited by the number of resources, or by the species' similarity in resource use. Natural systems such as the extreme diversity of unicellular life in the oceans provide counter examples. Read More

Violations of locality and free choice are equivalent resources in Bell experiments.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 Apr;118(17)

Division of Theoretical Physics, Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, PL-31342 Krakow, Poland.

Bell inequalities rest on three fundamental assumptions: realism, locality, and free choice, which lead to nontrivial constraints on correlations in very simple experiments. If we retain realism, then violation of the inequalities implies that at least one of the remaining two assumptions must fail, which can have profound consequences for the causal explanation of the experiment. We investigate the extent to which a given assumption needs to be relaxed for the other to hold at all costs, based on the observation that a violation need not occur on every experimental trial, even when describing correlations violating Bell inequalities.

Testing for anabolic steroids in human nail clippings.

J Forensic Sci 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Institut de médecine légale, Strasbourg, France.

Anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone, and their abuse can have numerous health consequences. Identification of this group of drugs has found applications in forensic toxicology, clinical situations, psychiatric disorders, and of course, anti-doping violations. Although anabolic steroids are generally tested in urine and very occasionally in head hair, collectors can face the lack of standard specimens, and therefore, nail clippings can be the unique alternative choice.

Toward the development of a perceived IRB violation scale.

Account Res 2021 May 5:1-15. Epub 2021 May 5.

Arizona State University, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

This study introduces survey items that can be used to assess the perceived prevalence of specific IRB violations by researchers or to gauge the perceived seriousness of such infractions. Using survey data from tenured and tenure-track faculty at research-intensive universities, the descriptive findings showed that the failure to properly store data and neglecting to maintain project records were perceived to be the most widespread violations by sample members. Although comparatively less definitive, the results also showed that problems with data storage and record keeping were perceived to be relatively serious violations. Read More
