1. Arm constraint and walking in healthy adults.
Match Strength: 6.987
The aim of the present study was to examine the functional adaptations in inter-segmental coordination when constraining one arm in healthy adults during treadmill walking at different velocities. Subjects were instructed to walk on a motorized treadmill at different walking velocities (range: 0.22-1.52m/s) during three experimental conditions, i.e.: (1) no arm constraint, (2) dominant arm constrained, and (3) non-dominant arm constrained. Movements of body segments were recorded with a 3D motion analysis system. A comparison between walking with one arm constrained and normal walking revealed ... Read More »

2. Sleep disorders in psychiatry.
Match Strength: 5.358
Sleep is an active state that is critical for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Sleep is also important for optimal cognitive functioning, and sleep disruption results in functional impairment. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in psychiatry. At any given time, 50% of adults are affected with 1 or more sleep problems such as difficulty in falling or staying asleep, in staying awake, or in adhering to a consistent sleep/wake schedule. Narcolepsy affects as many individuals as does multiple sclerosis or Parkinson disease. Sleep problems are especially prevalent in ... Read More »

3. The adult form of Niemann-Pick disease type C.
Match Strength: 5.099
Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) is a fatal neurovisceral lipid storage disease of autosomal inheritance resulting from mutations in either the NPC1 (95% of families) or NPC2 gene. The encoded proteins appear to be involved in lysosomal/late endosomal transport of cholesterol, glycolipids and other molecules but their exact function is still unknown. The clinical spectrum of the disease ranges from a neonatal rapidly fatal disorder to an adult-onset chronic neurodegenerative disease. Based upon a comprehensive study of 13 unrelated adult patients diagnosed in France over the past 20 years as ... Read More »

4. What should psychiatry residents be taught about neurology?: A survey of psychiatry residency directors.
Match Strength: 5.092
OBJECTIVES: To improve our ability to teach psychiatry residents during their required 2 months on neurology rotations, we investigated the perceived needs of psychiatry program training directors. METHODS: We contacted the program directors organization of the American Psychiatric Association and disseminated a web-based survey to all program directors. The survey asked questions about the format and content of neurology training desired for psychiatry residents. The survey was sent a second time to increase response rate. RESULTS: Sixty (32%) training directors responded. Overall ... Read More »

5. Life goals of patients with Parkinson's disease: A pilot study on correlations with mood and cognitive functions.
Match Strength: 2.885
OBJECTIVE: To identify the life goals of people with Parkinson's disease, to assess whether patients felt that these goals were 'on track', and to assess the relation of these life goals to neuropsychologic and mood function. DESIGN: Cross-sectional descriptive study with an age-matched control group. SETTING: Outpatient Movement Disorders Clinics Veterans Hospital. SUBJECTS: Twenty-two patients with mid-stage Parkinson's disease and 22 age-matched controls. MEASURES: Rivermead Life Goals Inventory, neuropsychological and mood scales. RESULTS: People with Parkinson's disease were less likely ... Read More »
