Bridi, Fang-Jiao Zong, Xia Min, Nancy Luo, Trinh Tran, Jiaqian Qiu, Daniel Severin, Xue-Ting Zhang, Guanglin Wang, Zheng-Jiang Zhu, Kai-Wen He, Alfredo KirkwoodSummaryA balance between synaptic excitation and inhibition (E/I balance) maintained within a narrow window is widely regarded to be crucial for cortical processing. In line with this idea, the E/I balance is reportedly comparable across neighboring neurons, behavioral states, and developmental stages and altered in many neurological disorders. Motivated by these ideas, we ...

Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Journal of Thermal BiologyAuthor(s): Cong Song, Yanfeng Liu, Xiaojun Zhou, Dengjia Wang, Yingying Wang, Jiaping LiuAbstractThe effect of the thermal environment on sleep quality has attracted considerable attention, as sleep forms one-third of human lifetime and the occupied space is largely constrained during sleep. With an increasing development of partial space regulation and task air conditioning systems and devices, thermal comfort demand concerning local thermal conditions has attracted more and more attention. In the present study, experiment was conducted an...

Up all night and can’t sleep. I was curious if your mentor assists you with an extraction or extractions on a patient that are difficult have you had them take those extractions out of your pay? It seems petty to me. What do you think this says about the owner and culture of the practice? I don’t think I fit in.

This study proposes a dedicated algorithm to estimate heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR) from seismocardiogram (SCG). The proposed algorithm primarily consists of the wavelet decomposition (by db6 wavelet), the Fourier-based envelope detection and the time-averaged power spectral density (PSD) from the scalogram by complex Morlet wavelet. The records in the combined measurement of ECG, breathing and SCG (CEBS) database of PhysioNet are adopted to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm for HR and RR estimation. The performance was evaluated by intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and Bland-Altman&rsqu...

Photo Credit John Mark Smith Dear Carol: My dad, 84, can shower, dress and eat. He’s continent and takes no medications, he can read, his hearing is OK and he’s non-combative. What he can’t do is stay safe. My presence is needed 24/7 because he’s living in an altered state of reality. I read about caregiver burnout, but these people seem to do so much more than I do that I feel guilty complaining. Even so, I know that I need help. When I sleep, my back burner is always on waiting for him to wake me because of an imaginary intruder or because he forgot something. I'm always worried that he could...
