Parkinson's disease in GTP cyclohydrolase 1 mutation carriers.
GTP cyclohydrolase 1, encoded by the GCH1 gene, is an essential enzyme for dopamine production in nigrostriatal cells. Loss-of-function mutations in GCH1 result in severe reduction of dopamine synthesis in nigrostriatal ...
Antenatal glucocorticoid treatment induces adaptations in adult midbrain dopamine neurons, which underpin sexually dimorphic behavioral resilience.
We demonstrated previously that antenatal glucocorticoid treatment (AGT, gestational days 16-19) altered the size and organization of the adult rat midbrain dopaminergic (DA) populations. Here we investigated the consequences ...
Neither phylogenomic nor palaeontological data support a Palaeogene origin of placental mammals.
O'Leary et al. (O'Leary et al. 2013 Science 339, 662-667. (doi:10.1126/science.1229237)) performed a fossil-only dating analysis of mammals, concluding that the ancestor of placentals post-dated the Cretaceous-Palaeogene ...

Designing for psychological change: individuals' reward and cost valuations in weight management.
BACKGROUND: Knowledge of the psychological constructs that underlie behavior offers valuable design opportunities for persuasive systems. We use the decision theory, which describes how behavior is underpinned by reward-cost ...
Interventions to improve exercise behaviour in sedentary people living with and beyond cancer: a systematic review.
To systematically review the effects of interventions to improve exercise behaviour in sedentary people living with and beyond cancer.
Clinical picture and treatment of 2212 patients with common variable immunodeficiency.
BACKGROUND: Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is an antibody deficiency with an equal sex distribution and a high variability in clinical presentation. The main features include respiratory tract infections and their ...
Plasma proteins predict conversion to dementia from prodromal disease.
BACKGROUND: The study aimed to validate previously discovered plasma biomarkers associated with AD, using a design based on imaging measures as surrogate for disease severity and assess their prognostic value in predicting ...
Exploring Yamatji perceptions and use of palliative care: an ethnographic study.
BACKGROUND: The Yamatji people comprise several Aboriginal groups living in the Midwest region of Western Australia. Palliative care remains underutilised among Aboriginal groups, but little is known about Yamatji people's ...
Antibiotics in the treatment of periodontal disease: a guide for the general dental practitioner.
The objective of the present paper is to discuss the appropriate use of systemic and local adjunctive antibiotics/antimicrobials in the management of periodontal diseases using a number of case studies to illustrate an ...
