Studying human fertility and environmental exposures.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-08)
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 ...
Endometriosis of the liver containing mullerian adenosarcoma: case report.
(Am J Obstet Gynecol, 2004-11)
We present a case of a liver endometrioma in a postmenopausal woman. After failed management with leuprolide acetate, the mass was resected and contained focal areas of mullerian adenosarcoma. This is a rare case of mullerian ...
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 ...
Learned birdsong and the neurobiology of human language.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
Vocal learning, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait found to date in only three distantly related groups of mammals (humans, bats, and cetaceans) and three distantly related groups of birds (parrots, hummingbirds, ...
Liability issues for data monitoring committee members.
(Clin Trials, 2004)
In randomized clinical trials, a data monitoring committee (DMC) is often appointed to review interim data to determine whether there is early convincing evidence of intervention benefit, lack of benefit or harm to study ...
Issues in regulatory guidelines for data monitoring committees.
(Clin Trials, 2004)
As clinical trials have emerged as the major research method for evaluating new interventions, the process for monitoring intervention safety and benefit has also evolved. The Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) has become the ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
