Adaptation to Climate Change: A Comparative Analysis of Modeling Methods for Heat-Related Mortality

Conclusions: Researchers should carefully consider how to model adaptation because it is a source of uncertainty that can be greater than the uncertainty in emissions and climate modeling. We recommend absolute threshold shifts and reductions in slope. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP634 Received: 09 June 2016 Revised: 15 September 2016 Accepted: 24 October 2016 Published: 16 August 2017 Address correspondence to S.N.

Some epileptic spasms are classified into focal-onset seizures. However, the cortical network underlying this kind of spasm seizure is not yet clear. Four patients with epileptic spasms who underwent intracranial electrode implantation and focal resection surgery were studied. All the patients had good outcomes, and three of them with intellectual disability showed improved intelligence after surgery. The power spectra characteristics of electrocorticography and the dynamic functional network changes of epileptic spasms were investigated. Electrocorticography power in the resected zone peaked 0.5 seconds before the clinica...

In this study, the sibling relationship attitudes of adult siblings of people with (N = 133) and without (N = 140) intellectual and developmental disabilities were explored. Feelings, behaviors, and thoughts related to sibling relationships were measured using the Lifespan Sibling Relationship Scale; depression was measured using the Beck Depression Inventory-II; anxiety was measured using the Beck Anxiety Inventory; and life satisfaction was measured using the Satisfaction With Life Scale. Results indicate that higher levels of positive sibling relationship attitudes are negatively related to levels of depression and anxi...

In this study, we utilize the frog, Xenopus laevis as a simpler and more accessible vertebrate neurodevelopmental model system to understand the embryological cause of Bainbridge-Ropers syndrome. We have found that ASXL3 protein knockdown during early embryo development highly perturbs neural cell fate specification, potentially resembling the Bainbridge-Ropers syndrome phenotype in humans. Thus, the frog embryo is a powerful tool for understanding the etiology of Bainbridge-Ropers syndrome in humans.
