This study focuses on developing a new EEG feature that can measure the nonlinear coupling, which thus would help improve seizure detection performance. We employ the correlation between probabilities of recurrence (CPR) to measure the PS on broadband EEG signals. CPR can capture the underlying nonlinear coupling of EEG signals and is robust to signal frequency and amplitude variance. The effectiveness of CPR-based features on identifying seizure EEG was evaluated on 26 epileptic patients with ID. Results show that the PS changes in seizures depend on the EEG discharge patterns including fast spike (SP), spike-wave (SPWA),...

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2018Source: Sport Management ReviewAuthor(s): Pam Kappelides, Jennifer SpoorAbstractDespite the known benefits of volunteering–such as helping others, contributing to community and the development of skills–individuals with a disability are underrepresented in volunteering roles. In this research, the authors examine the benefits and barriers to including volunteers with a disability in three Australian sport and recreation organisations, as well as the potential human resource management implications. The authors take a multi-level perspective and draw on intervie...

Publication date: Available online 13 November 2018Source: Multiple Sclerosis and Related DisordersAuthor(s): Antonia Kaltsatou, Andreas D. FlourisAbstractPatients with multiple sclerosis experience many complications that gradually lead them to comorbidity and disability. Exercise could prevent and ameliorate the symptoms that comorbidity or inactivity generate. However, until recently it was suggested that multiple sclerosis patients should not participate in exercise training programs because multiple sclerosis patients are characterized by thermoregulatory failure and the heat stress due to physical work could exacerba...

AbstractIntroductionThe progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) leads to a decline of the nutritional status that represents an independent prognostic factor for survival. Recent studies recognize the muscle tissue as an endocrine organ able to release several molecules, called myokines. Among them, irisin seems to be involved in the regulation of metabolism, body weight and development and function of the nervous system.Objectives(1) To evaluate irisin serum levels in patients with ALS, with comparison to healthy subjects; (2) to assess the possible association of circulating irisin levels of ALS patients with ...

AbstractSpinocerebellar ataxia type 1 is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by a CAG repeat expansion inATXN1, characterized by progressive cerebellar and extracerebellar symptoms. MRI-based studies in SCA1 focused in the cerebellum and connections, but there are few data about supratentorial/spinal damage and its clinical relevance. We have thus designed this multimodal MRI study to uncover the structural signature of SCA1. To accomplish that, a group of 33 patients and 33 age-and gender-matched healthy controls underwent MRI on a 3T scanner. All patients underwent a comprehensive neurological and neuropsychological ev...

AbstractObjectiveTo characterize the relation between brain functional connectivity and disability in patients with multiple sclerosis; to investigate the existence of critical values of both disability and functional connectivity corresponding to exhaustion of functional adaptive mechanisms.MethodsHundred-and-nineteen patients with no-to-severe disability and 42 healthy subjects were studied via 3T resting state functional MRI. Out of 116 regions extracted from Automated Anatomical Labeling atlas, pairs of regions whose functional connectivity correlated with Expanded Disability Status Score were identified. In patients, ...

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2018Source: BurnsAuthor(s): Kenisha Atwell, Colleen Bartley, Bruce Cairns, Anthony CharlesAbstractIntroductionPsychiatric disorders are mental illnesses that impair judgment, thought process and mood that can result in physical and emotional disability. According to DSM-IV, mental disorders increases risk of traumatic injury, particularly burn [1] (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). However, there are few studies that look at patients with pre-existing major psychiatric disorders and burn outcomes. We aim to assess the incidence and intentionality of burn injury in patie...
