Is This a Fasciculation?

Discussion Benign fasciculations are very common and occur in up to 70% of the general population. They occur at different points in people’s lives. They can be brought out by stress, poor sleep hygiene and caffeine. Caffeine has numerous uses especially for regulating sleep and attention. However too much can cause restlessness, jitteriness and sleep deprivation too. The recommended amount of caffeine for a teenager is

Most of the world's population now lives in cities. While living in cities have both health risks and benefits, mental health has been usually considered to be negatively affected by urbanicity. While mental health disorders have complex etiology and multiple causes, it has been shown in multiple observational studies that mood and anxiety disorders are more prevalent in urban centers and incidence has been increasing. In addition, the incidence of schizophrenia is strongly increased in people born and raised in cities.

Publication date: Available online 6 September 2019Source: International Journal of Nursing SciencesAuthor(s): Melissa A. McCoy, Laurie A. TheekeAbstractType 2 diabetes mellitus contributes to poor health outcomes including mortality, yet there is a gap in the literature when seeking to understand the influence of psychosocial factors on coping in this population. The paper presents a systematic review of quantitative studies that examined relationships among psychosocial determinants and coping in adults with type 2 diabetes. This review is the second layer of knowledge discovery for the concept, “Taking on a life-a...

CONCLUSION: Despite good interrater variability and convenient usage of the suggested X‑ray assessment system, this approach did not enable the identification of any associations by which a TM and, therefore, a possible straightforward or complicated treatment pathway could be predicted. Attention should possibly be paid to a rotation of the cuff during implantation with a lateral position of the stimulation lead. PMID: 31598770 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: 2019Source: International Review of Neurobiology, Volume 147Author(s): Rebecca K. West, Laian Z. Najjar, J. Leigh LeasureAbstractThere are vast literatures on the neural effects of alcohol and the neural effects of exercise. Simply put, exercise is associated with brain health, alcohol is not, and the mechanisms by which exercise benefits the brain directly counteract the mechanisms by which alcohol damages it. Although a degree of brain recovery naturally occurs upon cessation of alcohol consumption, effective treatments for alcohol-induced brain damage are badly needed, and exercise is an excellent cand...

Publication date: 2019Source: International Review of Neurobiology, Volume 147Author(s): Jessie S.M. Chan, Siu-Man Ng, Lai-Ping Yuen, Cecilia L.W. ChanAbstractChronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is often overlooked, has unclear etiology and no effective cure except some symptomatic treatments. Additionally, most people with CFS do not seek medical attention. Qigong exercise, an ancient Eastern body-mind-spirit practice, has been long practiced in Chinese communities and may powerfully trigger the self-healing process. Using full baseline data (n = 1409), the average Hong Kong CFS respondent was found to be female, mar...

ConclusionFew studies were found, which limits the possibility of drawing strong conclusions about cost effectiveness. There is some evidence based on decision-analytic modelling that anti-bullying interventions represent value for money. Generally, there is a lack of studies that take into account long-term costs and effects.Systematic Review Registration NumberCRD42019115882.

Correlation analysis of the performance of goal-directed activity and heart rate variability parameters in people with different individually-typological features was conducted on the model of endosurgical training. It was found that people with low level of intro-extroversion and neuroticism, but high index of situational anxiety were more successful during goal-directed behavior. The subjects with low level of neuroticism finished the tasks more quickly, both at the beginning and at the end of the observations. It was established that the number of mistakes in subjects with low personal anxiety on the 10th day of trainin...

We examined the effect of controllability factor on behavioral and neurochemical parameters of acute stress in the elevated plus maze test. The situations of controllable and uncontrollable stress were modeled by allowing or restricting mice in their choice for closed arms during testing in the maze. The anxiety level of inbred BALB/c and C57Bl/6N mice was assessed and the levels and monoamine turnover in the medial prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus were measured. It was found that the decrease in stress controllability suppresses explorative activity in mice; the behavioral and neurochemical diffe...
