The trauma of birth or parenting a child: effect on parents' negative emotion in China - Xiang Y, Chi X, Wu H, Zeng T, Chao X, Zhang P, Mo L.

The present study assessed negative emotions associated with the traumas of infertility and child rearing (child's disability or death) and the correlates of duration of trauma. The widely used Chinese Mental Health Scale was used to assess negative emotio...

Conclusions:These data suggest sleep and pain are worst in Veterans with TBI and PTSD, and that sleep is similarly impaired in Veterans with PTSD despite not having as much pain. Thus, although this is a complex relationship, these data suggest PTSD may be driving sleep disturbances, and the added effect of TBI in the comorbid group may be driving pain in this population.Citation:Balba NM, Elliott JE, Weymann KB, Opel RA, Duke JW, Oken BS, Morasco BJ, Heinricher MM, Lim MM.

Conclusions:Elevated REI and lower sleep period RSA were independently predictive of NM/DD. The former result is consistent with studies showing that sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is a factor in NM/DD, and that continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) can reduce these symptoms in patients with comorbid PTSD and SDB. The latter result implicates dysregulated arousal modulation during sleep in trauma-related NM/DD. It is consistent with findings that NM/DD are reported in patients without SDB and can persist in patients with comorbid PTSD and SDB even when CPAP successfully remediates SDB.Citation:Miller KE, Jamison AL,...

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),...

ConclusionsThe NPS-ASP appears to be a good parameter to assess sperm function and would be a useful tool to detect chromosomal translocations. Four redundant regions have been identified on four chromosomes, suggesting that they may contain genes of interest to study sperm functions.

CONCLUSIONS: PTSD is an important clinical consideration in older adults, although the empirical database, particularly regarding psychotherapy, is limited. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Assessment for trauma history and PTSD symptoms in older adults is essential, and may lead to increased recognition and treatment.

This study aims to determine key genes and pathways that could play important roles in the spermatogenic process of patients with cryptorchidism. The identification of these molecules and pathways may help in understanding the etiology of cryptorchidism, and thereby reduce the incidence of cryptorchidism-induced azoospermia. The gene expression profile data of GSE25518 was obtained from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database. Microarray data were analyzed using BRB-Array Tools to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between high azoospermia risk (HAZR) patients and controls. In addition, other analytical meth...

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...
