Hyperglycaemia-related complications at the time of diagnosis can cause permanent neurological disability in children with neonatal diabetes.
BACKGROUND: Children with neonatal diabetes often present with diabetic ketoacidosis and hence are at risk of cerebral oedema and subsequent long-term neurological deficits. These complications are difficult to identify ...
Human-robot sensor interface for cardiac rehabilitation.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world. A program of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is related to physical activities or exercises to regain the optimal quality of life. CR relies on the necessity ...
Expression of delta-like ligand 4 (Dll4) and markers of hypoxia in colon cancer.
BACKGROUND: Delta-like ligand 4 (Dll4) is a Notch ligand that is upregulated by hypoxia and vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) and is reported to have a role in tumor angiogenesis. Evidence from xenograft studies ...
Up-regulation of endothelial delta-like 4 expression correlates with vessel maturation in bladder cancer.
PURPOSE: Angiogenesis and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression are associated with a poor outcome in bladder cancer. To understand more about the mechanisms, we studied the role of delta-like 4 (DLL4), an ...
Temporal distance and person memory: thinking about the future changes memory for the past.
Psychological distance has been shown to influence how people construe an event such that greater distance produces high-level construal (characterized by global or holistic processing) and lesser distance produces low-level ...
The hows and whys of face processing: Level of construal influences the holistic processing of human faces.
Face recognition and identification are optimized by holistic processing. Various visual-spatial manipulations appear to have transfer effects on holistic face processing. The present experiment tests the effects of a ...
