Studying human fertility and environmental exposures.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-08)
A new instrument for measuring anticoagulation-related quality of life: development and preliminary validation.
(Health Qual Life Outcomes, 2004-05-06)
BACKGROUND: Anticoagulation can reduce quality of life, and different models of anticoagulation management might have different impacts on satisfaction with this component of medical care. Yet, to our knowledge, there are ...
Inflammation controls B lymphopoiesis by regulating chemokine CXCL12 expression.
(J Exp Med, 2004-01-05)
Inflammation removes developing and mature lymphocytes from the bone marrow (BM) and induces the appearance of developing B cells in the spleen. BM granulocyte numbers increase after lymphocyte reductions to support a reactive ...
Cultural life scripts structure recall from autobiographical memory.
(Mem Cognit, 2004-04)
Three classes of evidence demonstrate the existence of life scripts, or culturally shared representations of the timing of major transitional life events. First, a reanalysis of earlier studies on age norms shows an increase ...
Puzzling thoughts for H. M.: can new semantic information be anchored to old semantic memories?
Researchers currently debate whether new semantic knowledge can be learned and retrieved despite extensive damage to medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures. The authors explored whether H. M., a patient with amnesia, could ...
Reduction of quantity smoked predicts future cessation among older smokers.
AIM: To examine whether smokers who reduce their quantity of cigarettes smoked between two periods are more or less likely to quit subsequently. STUDY DESIGN: Data come from the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally ...
Functional parcellation of attentional control regions of the brain.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2004-01)
Recently, a number of investigators have examined the neural loci of psychological processes enabling the control of visual spatial attention using cued-attention paradigms in combination with event-related functional magnetic ...
Methodologic and statistical approaches to studying human fertility and environmental exposure.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-01)
Although there has been growing concern about the effects of environmental exposures on human fertility, standard epidemiologic study designs may not collect sufficient data to identify subtle effects while properly adjusting ...
Burning a hole in the budget: tobacco spending and its crowd-out of other goods.
(Appl Health Econ Health Policy, 2004)
Smoking is an expensive habit. Smoking households spend, on average, more than $US1000 annually on cigarettes. When a family member quits, in addition to the former smoker's improved long-term health, families benefit because ...
Brain activity during episodic retrieval of autobiographical and laboratory events: an fMRI study using a novel photo paradigm.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2004-11)
Functional neuroimaging studies of episodic memory retrieval generally measure brain activity while participants remember items encountered in the laboratory ("controlled laboratory condition") or events from their own life ...
