BDNF gene polymorphisms and haplotypes in relation to cognitive performance in Polish healthy subjects

Making Test (TMT), the Stroop Test which are to a large extent connected with prefrontal cortex activity. Our sample consisted of 460 healthy participants from Polish population. We detected possible association between five BDNF polymorphisms (rs11030101, rs10835210, rs2049046, rs2030324, rs2883187) and TMT_A. Additionally, one haplotype block made from eleven BDNF variants (rs2883187, rs1401635, rs2049046, rs2030324, rs11030101, rs10835210, rs1013402, rs1401635, rs1013402), as

Effects of postural and cognitive difficulty levels on the standing of healthy young males on an unstable platform

Standing on an unstable platform requires continuous effort of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the ability to remain standing on an unstable platform at different levels of postural and cognitive difficulty. Healthy young males stood in the sagittal plane on an unstable platform supported by a pair of springs with modifiable stiffness. The balance test also assessed different levels of vision and cognitive function. Linear and nonlinear metrics of

Application of Metagenomic Analyses in Dentistry as a Novel Strategy Enabling Complex Insight into Microbial Diversity of the Oral Cavity

The composition of the oral microbiome in healthy individuals is complex and dynamic, and depends on many factors, such as anatomi­cal location in the oral cavity, diet, oral hygiene habits or host immune responses. It is estimated at present that worldwide about 2 billion people suffer from diseases of the oral cavity, mainly periodontal disease and dental caries. Importantly, the oral microflora involved in local infections may spread and cause systemic, even life-threatening infections

A Sensor-Based Forage Monitoring of Grazing Cattle in Dairy Farming

In this proposed work, the feeding behavior of cow is analyzed to monitor its health condition, through the detection of three most common events of grazing activity such as chew, bite, and chew–bite. A healthy cow should have a good means of chew, bite, and chew–bite habits. Hence, an unhealthy cow can be easily identified by its grazing activities and treated immediately. Here, a wearable and compact device is developed, which is used to monitor the grazing events. The device consists of

Calcium release from intracellular stores is involved in mitochondria depolarization after lowering extracellular pH in rat brain synaptosomes

In the brain, pH can be lowered in both healthy and disease states. Previously, we showed that moderate extracellular acidification (down to pHo 7.0), but not intracellular acidification, leads to mitochondrial depolarization in synaptosomes. This indicates that the plasma membranes of neuronal presynaptic endings have proton receptors that can induce mitochondrial dysfunction when activated. In the present paper we attempt to identify this hypothetical receptor. First, we have demonstrated

, including that of borderline personality disorder, which leads to a broad spectrum of maladaptive and dysfunctional behaviors.To measure identity pathology and its improvement with treatment, we developed a self-report questionnaire entitled Assessment of Identity Development in Adolescence to establish a reliable, valid, and time-efficient inventory to represent a dimensional concept of healthy and impaired personality development. The reliability of this self-report questionnaire is excellent, and the

Behavioral Weight Loss Treatment for Youth Treated With Antipsychotic Medications

, anthropomorphic, and metabolic findings from a case series of obese adolescents taking antipsychotic medications who participated in a short-term, family-based behavioral weight loss intervention.Methods:We adapted the Traffic Light Plan, a 16-week family-based weight loss intervention that promotes healthy energy balance using the colors of the traffic light to categorize the nutritional value of foods and the intensity of physical activity. We then added a social and ecological framework to address health

Exploring a lay Gestalt of schizophrenia? A Danish background population’s explanations on why and how first-episode schizophrenia patients’ narratives were intuitively sensed as contextually inappropriate

(in)appropriateness.Method:One empirical evaluation of contextual (in)appropriateness in 10 narratives from first-episode schizophrenia patients and healthy controls, respectively, found that when a phenomenologically informed Danish population (n=157 high-school students; mean age, 18.5) was “blinded” to the control–patient status – that is, “anonymous” narratives of the wordless picture story Frog, Where Are You? – they consequently evaluated patient narratives as more inappropriate than

Serum TSH level in obese children and its correlations with atherogenic lipid indicators and carotid intima media thickness

indicators, and carotid intima media thickness in obese children and adolescents. Methods: A study group consisted of 110 obese children (11.5 ± 2.9 years) and 38 healthy children (13.4 ± 2.6 years). Obesity was defined using International Obesity Task Force criteria. In each patient anthropometric measurements, thyroid-stimulating hormone, free thyroxine, a lipid profile were evaluated. Carotid intima-media thickness was measured in 74 obese children and 28 lean children. The resulting data were used to

Usefulness of ultrasound examination in the evaluation of a neonate's body fluid status

Material and methodsThe study included 50 neonates from two hospitals in the Lower Silesia region of Poland; 25 of them were healthy patients (full-term newborns with no perinatal complications) and 25 were sick patients (newborns with heart defects such as ostium secundum atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, permanent foramen ovale and patent ductus arteriosus as well as newborns with neonatal jaundice or pneumonia that occurred during the first days of life). The ultrasound scans

Immunohistochemistry: CD31 (+), CD34 (+), FVIII (−), vimentin (+), CK MNF116 (−), mesothelial cells (−), calretinin (−), MIB-1 = 8.4%. The tumor described is one of the few benign lesions originating from the tissues of the testis for which partial resection of the organ may be considered. Intraoperative histopathological examination and resection of the lesion with the preservation of a healthy tissue margin may be considered in

areas with healthy and infested plants, respectively. Because the male individuals were not found in the soil samples, females were used for species identification. Morphological and molecular analyses of females (Fig. 2A-C) identified the species as Paratrichodorus minor (Colbran) Siddiqi; (Decraemer, 1995). Nematode body shape was “cigar-shaped” with dorsally curved “onchiostyle” stylet Females had an oval-shaped vagina, vulva a transverse slit, and lateral body pores were absent. The measurements
