Does Contralateral Inhibition of Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions Suggest Sex or Ear Laterality Effects?

Does Contralateral Inhibition of Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions Suggest Sex or Ear Laterality Effects? Am J Audiol. 2018 Jun 25;:1-11 Authors: Stuart A, Kerls AN Abstract Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine contralateral inhibition of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) in young adults with normal hearing as a function of ear and sex. Method: Young female (n = 50) and male (n = 50) adults with normal hearing participated. TEOAEs were measured bilaterally with 80 dB peSPL nonlinear clicks and 60 dB peSPL linear clicks with and without a contralateral broadband noise elicitor at 65 dB SPL. Absolute TEOAE inhibition and normalized TEOAE inhibition (i.e., percentage of inhibition) were examined. Results: With both 80 and 60 dB peSPL evoking stimuli, there were significant main effects of ear and sex (p .05). Significant main effects of ear and sex were, however, found with normalized TEOAE inhibition (p

CONCLUSION: Sputum suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope can significantly improve the hypoxia and pulmonary infections, reduce the inflammatory response, and thus improve the prognosis, rendering suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope as a safe and effective treatment for non-severe ischemic SAP patients with dysphagia.

Authors: Jensen P, Frisk R, Spedden ME, Geertsen SS, Bouyer LJ, Halliday DM, Nielsen JB Abstract The present study used coherence and directionality analyses to explore whether the motor cortex contributes to plantar flexor muscle activity during the stance phase and push-off phase during gait. Subjects walked on a treadmill, while EEG over the leg motorcortex area and EMG from the medial gastrocnemius and soleus muscles was recorded. Corticomuscular and intermuscular coherence were calculated from pair-wise recordings. Significant EEG-EMG and EMG-EMG coherence in the beta and gamma frequency bands was found throug...

Authors: Watanabe R, Wagman JB, Higuchi T Abstract We investigated perception of the extent of an object held in the hand or attached to the head during walking. Participants wielded an occluded, weighted rod by hand and by head and reported the perceived location of the rod end (relative to a virtual vertical line) while walking and while standing. There was an unexpected effect of body part on perceived location of the rod end. In particular, participants stood or walked so that the rod end was farther away from the vertical line when wielding with the head than wielding with the hand. It is possible that differe...

Authors: Mumic de Melo L, Hotta Ansai J, Giusti Rossi P, Carvalho Vale FA, Cristhine de Medeiros Takahashi A, Pires de Andrade L Abstract In clinical practice, older people with cognitive impairment may have difficulties to understand the instructions of the Timed Up-and-Go (TUGT) test and present a bad performance. The purpose of this study was to identify differences in the TUGT performance, in an adapted version, between older adults with preserved cognition (PC), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD), and to identify the association between the adapted TUGT performance and cognition among...
