ABSTRACT The aim of this work was to evaluate patients with chronic migraine treated with botulinum toxin A (BT-A) and compare this with low level laser therapy (LLLT), referencing: pain days, pain intensity, intake of drugs/self-medication, anxiety and sleep disorders. Methods: Patients were randomized into two groups: BT-A group (n = 18) and LLLT group (n = 18). Each patient kept three pain diaries: one before (baseline) (30 days), one during treatment (30 days) and one after the post-treatment phase (30 days). Repeated ANOVA plus the Bonferroni post-test, Student's t test, and factorial analysis were applied, and p

In this study, we used a masked independent component analysis (mICA) to partition the hippocampus into several small regions and investigated the changes in the FC of each small region within the whole brain after 24 h of SD in 40 normal young subjects. First, we determined the optimal number of hippocampal subregions in a data-driven manner using a reproducibility analysis and chose 17 as the optimal number of hippocampal subregions. Second, we compared the FC of each subregion between rested wakefulness and SD states using mCIA. Reduced FC was found between the left junction of anterior and anterolateral hippocampal r...

This study used data of LifeLines, a general population cohort in which 1.0% (n=943, 63.7% female, age 44.9 (SD 11.6) years) reported CFS, 3.0% (n=2,714; 91.6% female; age 48.4 (SD 10.7) years) reported FMS, and 95.7% (n=87,532; 57.9% female; age 44.3 (SD 12.4) years) reported neither CFS nor FMS. Physical activity, sleep duration, and symptom severity were assessed by questionnaires and analysed using ANCOVA and regression analyses, adjusted for age, sex, body mass index, smoking, and educational level. Results: Patients with CFS and FMS had significantly lower physical activity scores (8834 ± 5967 and 8813 &p...
