A total of 68% (n=48) of cases with a lifetime history of depression met criteria for sleep-disturbance. DMN functional connectivity was assessed via ROI-to-ROI analyses. Results: Relative to controls, those with lifetime major depression demonstrated significantly increased functional connectivity between the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and the temporal pole. Within the depression group (n = 48), those with current sleep disturbance had significantly increased connectivity between the anterior medial prefrontal cortex and both the parahippocampal cortex and the hippocampal formation, relative to those without sleep disturbance (n = 23). These results were present after controlling for MCI diagnosis. Conclusions: Current sleep disturbance together with depression is associated with distinct abnormalities in DMN functioning incorporating regions responsible for self-reflection and declarative memory processes. Impaired sleep is associated with increased connectivity between these regions. Future studies may augment these findings with complementary imaging techniques including cortical thickness and diffusion tensor imaging, as well as high density electroencephalogram recording.]]> Tue 30 Jan 2018 16:54:38 AEST ]]> Anticipated versus unanticipated terms of trade shocks and the J-curve phenomenon Tue 30 Jan 2018 16:47:38 AEST ]]> Gaming Attribute Preferences in Social Marketing Programs: Meaning Matters More than Rewards Tue 30 Jan 2018 12:41:22 AEST ]]> A Broader Development Perspective: Economic and Political Drivers of Worldwide Land Registration Reform Tue 30 Jan 2018 12:30:47 AEST ]]> Developing a Profiling Tool Using a Values Approach to School Renewal Tue 30 Jan 2018 11:53:38 AEST ]]> Caffeine Improves Triathlon Performance: A Field Study in Males and Females Tue 30 Jan 2018 08:51:38 AEST ]]> Is there a difference between bêche-de-mer processed from ocean-cultured and wild-harvested sandfish (Holothuria scabra)?

Correlation coefficients (CCs) were converted to Z scores via Fisher's z values for the analysis of summary effects, using a random-effects model. Results: Twelve studies were included in the systematic review. The meta-analysis showed a negative correlation between cfPWV and LPA (CC -0.16; 95% CI: -0.29 to -0.03; p=.02) and MVPA (CC -0.16; 95% CI: -0.26 to -0.06; p<.01), and a positive relationship between cfPWV and SB (CC 0.23; 95% CI: 0.12 to 0.35; p<.01). Conclusions: Time spent in light and moderate physical activities is associated with lower arterial stiffness, while time spent in SB is related to higher arterial stiffness. It suggests that PA at any intensity is favorable for arterial stiffness, whereas SB leads to increased arterial stiffness. Considering that cfPWV has an independent prognostic value, these associations may have important clinical implications.]]> Thu 18 Jan 2018 11:28:04 AEST ]]> Development of a Chlamydia trachomatis vaccine for urogenital infections: novel tools and new strategies point to bright future prospects Thu 18 Jan 2018 08:29:44 AEST ]]> In Situ Tropical Peatland Fire Emission Factors and Their Variability, as Determined by Field Measurements in Peninsula Malaysia 25% of estimated total greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and degradation. Despite significant global and regional impacts, our understanding of specific gaseous fire emission factors (EFs) from tropical peat burning is limited to a handful of studies. Furthermore, there is substantial variability in EFs between sampled fires and/or studies. For example, methane EFs vary by 91% between studies. Here we present new fire EFs for the tropical peatland ecosystem; the first EFs measured for Malaysian peatlands, and only the second comprehensive study of EFs in this crucial environment. During August 2015 (under El Niño conditions) and July 2016, we embarked on field campaigns to measure gaseous emissions at multiple peatland fires burning on deforested land in Southeast Pahang (2015) and oil palm plantations in North Selangor (2016), Peninsula Malaysia. Gaseous emissions were measured using open-path Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The IR spectra were used to retrieve mole fractions of 12 different gases present within the smoke (including carbon dioxide and methane), and these measurements used to calculate EFs. Peat samples were taken at each burn site for physicochemical analysis and to explore possible relationships between specific physicochemical properties and fire EFs. Here we present the first evidence to indicate that substrate bulk density affects methane fire EFs reported here. This novel explanation of interplume, within-biome variability, should be considered by those undertaking greenhouse gas accounting and haze forecasting in this region and is of importance to peatland management, particularly with respect to artificial compaction. ©2018.

Modelling changes in wood volume yields from pest management 50%, if uncontrolled) could be predicted from (1) plantation age (the likelihood of above-threshold populations peaks at age 4–5 years and declines to a low value by age 12 years), and (2) site-level leaf beetle risk (sites of high leaf beetle risk were at higher elevation and closer to native grassland than sites of low leaf beetle risk). Based on these relationships, the occurrence of above-threshold leaf beetle populations was predicted in Forestry Tasmania’s 50 000 ha plantation estate between 2003 and 2034. The leaf beetle IPM program, through controlling these above-threshold populations, was then predicted to be able to avert losses of 2.18 million m3 (9.4% of merchantable wood volume). © 2018 Institute of Foresters of Australia (IFA)]]> Thu 15 Feb 2018 14:38:38 AEST ]]> Large enthesophytes in teenage skulls: Mechanical, inflammatory and genetic considerations 40 mm), and interviews with participants and their parents indicated that concerns related to posture were prevalent since early childhood.

The neck-pain group demonstrated higher falls efficacy (p = 0.01), greater levels of dizziness handicap (p < 0.01), and higher CoP velocity measures in the moderate (1.56–6.25 Hz) and low (0.39–1.56Hz) frequency bandwidths. Our results suggest that neck-pain induced postural control deficits in older adults may not be associated with the physical activity levels, lower limb motor and sensory function, or vestibular and visual function. Inferring from wavelet analysis results, we speculated that sensory re-weighting may have occurred to compensate for the deficits in neck proprioception. Further research is warranted to determine neck specific mechanisms underpinning postural control dysfunction in neck pain]]> Fri 24 Nov 2017 10:05:53 AEST ]]> Climate mediates the success of migration strategies in a marine predator Fri 19 Jan 2018 13:15:10 AEST ]]> A randomized controlled intervention study investigating the efficacy of carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables and extra-virgin olive oil on attenuating sarcopenic symptomology in overweight and obese older adults during energy intake restriction: protocol paper Fri 19 Jan 2018 12:33:07 AEST ]]> Copy number profiles of paired primary and metastatic colorectal cancers Fri 19 Jan 2018 12:19:08 AEST ]]> Fidelity of Occupational Performance Coaching: Importance of Accuracy in Intervention Identification Fri 19 Jan 2018 11:44:04 AEST ]]> Factors influencing food choice of athletes at international competition events Fri 19 Jan 2018 11:37:04 AEST ]]> Form or function: Does focusing on body functionality protect women from body dissatisfaction when viewing media images?
