In this study, the authors aimed to assess the prevalence of parent-reported SB in children and its association with social, emotional, and behavioral problems. METHODS: The authors conducted a cross-sectional study with a school-based sample at 20 public schools in Brazil.

Authors: Finley JR, Wixted JT, Roediger HL Abstract Recent research in the eyewitness identification literature has investigated whether simultaneous or sequential lineups yield better discriminability. In standard eyewitness identification experiments, subjects view a mock-crime video and then are tested only once, requiring large samples for adequate power. However, there is no reason why theories of simultaneous versus sequential lineup performance cannot be tested using more traditional recognition memory tasks. In two experiments, subjects studied DRM (Deese-Roediger-McDermott) word lists (e.g., bed, rest, tir...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with increased all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in the general population and may be associated with decreased exercise capacity on cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). While comorbid OSA is often considered when evaluating patients for heart transplantation, post-transplant outcomes are poorly studied.
