- Prevalence, Pattern, and Factors Associated With Self-reported Disability Among the Bhutanese Population: A Secondary Data Analysis of Population and Housing Censusby Kinley Dorjee on October 26, 2021
We analyzed the Population and Health Census of Bhutan (PHCB) 2017 to assess the prevalence and pattern of self-reported disability among people aged ≥15 years and the associated factors. The PHCB 2017 used the Washington Group Short Set on Functioning questionnaire to assess the disability ("lot of difficulty" or "cannot do at all") in seeing, hearing, mobility, cognition, self-care, and communication. Of the 536 443 persons included in the analysis, 384 101(71.6%) were aged
- Functional Connectivity and Frequency Power Alterations during P300 Task as a Result of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosisby Claudia X Perez-Ortiz on October 26, 2021
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is one of the most aggressive neurodegenerative diseases and is now recognized as a multisystem network disorder with impaired connectivity. Further research for the understanding of the nature of its cognitive affections is necessary to monitor and detect the disease, so this work provides insight into the neural alterations occurring in ALS patients during a cognitive task (P300 oddball paradigm) by measuring connectivity and the power and latency of the...
- The persistent impact of adolescent binge alcohol on adult brain structural, cellular, and behavioral pathology: A role for the neuroimmune system and epigeneticsby Leon G Coleman on October 26, 2021
Adolescence is a critical neurodevelopmental window for maturation of brain structure, neurocircuitry, and glia. This development is sculpted by an individual's unique experiences and genetic background to establish adult level cognitive function and behavioral makeup. Alcohol abuse during adolescence is associated with an increased lifetime risk for developing an alcohol use disorder (AUD). Adolescents participate in heavy, episodic binge drinking that causes persistent changes in...
- Active constituent of Polygala tenuifolia attenuates cognitive deficits by rescuing hippocampal neurogenesis in APP/PS1 transgenic miceby Xiao-Feng Wang on October 26, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings demonstrated that DISS is the constituent of PT that triggers the most potent increase of hippocampal neurogenesis in our mouse model of AD.
