Can we detect altered disease state in early stage Huntington’s Disease using acoustic markers of speech?
(Causal Productions, 2012)
Altered prosody has been described in symptomatic Huntington’s Disease (HD) individuals, however, the extent to which acoustic analysis of speech is sensitive to gene positive pre-manifest (PreHD) individuals is unknown. ...
Acoustic analysis of the effects of 24 hours of sustained wakefulness
(Causal Productions, 2010)
The effect of 24 hours of sustained wakefulness on the speech of healthy adults is poorly documented. Therefore, speech samples were systematically acquired (e.g., every four hours) from 18 healthy adults over 24 hours. ...
Dysphagia and swallowing-related quality of life in Friedreich ataxia
Dysphagia in Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) and its impact on quality of life is not adequately understood. The objective of this study was to characterise dysphagia in FRDA and to determine the impact of swallowing dysfunction ...
Serum Methylarginines and Hearing Loss in a Population-based Cohort of Older Adults
(LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS, 2018-04-01)
OBJECTIVE: Age-related hearing loss is associated with endothelial dysfunction and increased cardiovascular risk, suggesting a vascular etiology. Methylarginines are endogenous nitric oxide synthase inhibitors that cause ...
Tranilast administration reduces fibrosis and improves fatigue resistance in muscles of mdx dystrophic mice.
BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe and progressive muscle-wasting disorder caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene that result in the absence of the membrane-stabilising protein dystrophin. ...
Parenting Stress in Parents of Children With Cochlear Implants: Relationships Among Parent Stress, Child Language, and Unilateral Versus Bilateral Implants
(OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2014-01-01)
Little attention has been focused on stress levels of parents of children with cochlear implants (CIs). This study examined the stress experience of 70 parents of children with CIs by comparing stress levels in this group ...
Phenotypic and Functional Characterization of Peripheral Sensory Neurons derived from Human Embryonic Stem Cells
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2018-01-12)
The dorsal root ganglia (DRG) consist of a multitude of sensory neuronal subtypes that function to relay sensory stimuli, including temperature, pressure, pain and position to the central nervous system. Our knowledge of ...
Barriers to early cochlear implantation
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2016-01-01)
OBJECTIVE: Identify variables associated with paediatric access to cochlear implants (CIs). DESIGN: Part 1. Trends over time for age at CI surgery (N = 802) and age at hearing aid (HA) fitting (n = 487) were examined with ...
