Research examining the prevalence of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is limited by a lack of comprehensive measurement tools. While the Composite Abuse Scale (CAS) was designed to assess multiple forms of partner abuse, to date it has been primarily used in clinical samples and has not been applied to the broader community.

Pediatric Allergic Rhinitis

Posted on

Allergic rhinitis usually presents in early childhood and is caused by an immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated reaction to various allergens in the nasal mucosa. Sensitization to outdoor allergens can occur in allergic rhinitis in children older than 2 years; however, sensitization to outdoor allergens is more common in children older than 4-6 years. Clinically significant sensitization to indoor allergens may occur in children younger than 2 years. The most common allergens include dust mites, pet danders, cockroaches, molds, and pollens.

Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology, as one of the neurosciences, has grown to be a separate field of specialization within psychology over about the last 40 years, although there has always been an interest in it throughout the 120-year history of modern scientific psychology. Neuropsychology seeks to understand the relationship between the brain and behaviour, that is, it attempts to explain the way in which the activity of the brain is expressed in observable behaviour studies the structure and function of the brain as they relate to specific psychological processes and behaviours. It is seen as a clinical and experimental field of psychology that aims to study, assess, understand and treat behaviours directly related to brain functioning. The term neuropsychology has been applied to lesion studies in humans and animals. It has also been applied to efforts to record electrical activity from individual cells (or groups of cells) in higher primates (including some studies of human patients).It is scientific in its approach, making use of neuroscience, and shares an information processing view of the mind with cognitive psychology and cognitive science.A science concerned with the integration of psychological observations on behaviour and the mind with neurological observations on the brain and nervous system is Neuropsychology.

Mapping neural networks to strengthen circadian rhythms

Posted on

While the evidence behind this age-related weakening of the circadian rhythm has been established in medical literature, the mechanisms behind it, and the connectivity structure of the neurons, have remained elusive. To better understand these neuronal and hormonal mechanisms and help develop potential treatments, researchers have conducted experimental analyses of the SCN’s connections, with the goal of determining its degree of heterogeneity.

Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections

Posted on Updated on

The most common type of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) is a urinary tract infection (UTI), and 80 percent of these are associated with the use of indwelling urinary catheters (IUCs). These are termed catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).

Correlation of Perineural Invasion with Biochemical Recurrence and Negative Pathological Features in Prostate Adenocarcinoma

Posted on

Perineural invasion is regarded as a significant pathological feature in many organ cancers and a poor prognosis symptom for most of these cancers. In this study, our aim is to analyze the significance of perineural invasion independently from factors such as preoperative Gleason score and clinical, and with regard to biochemical recurrence that occurs after radical prostatectomy.
