Focusing attention on biological markers of acute stressor intensity: empirical evidence and limitations. NEUROSCIENCE AND BIOBEHAVIORAL REVIEWS. The availability of biological markers that objectively quantify stress is a highly relevant issue. However, experimental evidence suggests that most physiological changes elicited by emotional stressors do not reflect their intensity and are not useful for this purpose. Thus, we review exp...

Authors: Fontes MAP, Marzano LAS, Silva CC, Silva ACSE Abstract Despite the current availability of safe and efficient drugs for treating hypertension, a substantial number of patients are drug-resistant hypertensives. Aiming this condition, a relatively new approach named catheter-based renal denervation was developed. We have now a clinically relevant time window to review the efficacy of renal denervation for treating this form of hypertension. This short review addresses the physiological contribution of renal sympathetic nerves for blood pressure control and discusses the pros and cons of renal denervation pro...

Long-term antipsychotic use is associated with substantially decreased mortality compared with no antipsychotic use, especially among patients treated with clozapine, according to areport inWorld Psychiatry, the journal of the World Psychiatric Association.Moreover, long ‐term antipsychotic use does not increase the likelihood that a patient will experience severe illness leading to hospitalization, wrote Heidi Taipale, Ph.D., of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and colleagues.People with schizophrenia have a shorter average life expectancy than the general population. Taipale and colleagues wanted to know if these dif...

Conclusion: This is the first report of any pathogenic splice variant at first exon/intron boundary implicated in RPA and suggests another mechanism through which RDH5 variants could be associated with eye phenotype. This study also highlights the importance of a thorough phenotypic evaluation of heterozygous mutation carriers who may exhibit milder symptoms. PMID: 31933420 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

I have posted a number of notes pertaining to wearables and wearable health ecosystems (see, for example:Sony Develops Health Wearable Providing Connectivity, Stipulating That It's Not a Smartwatch;The Evolution of"Wearable Health Ecosystems" and Associated Partnerships;Status Reports and Hospital Referrals from Wearable Health Ecosystems). I have not yet raised the issue of providing a virtual personal assistant (VPS) with these home-based health systems. This idea was discussed in a recent article (see:Wearables Hold the Key to Connected Health Monitoring) and below is an excerpt from it:As voice inter...
