The Differential Effects of Attentional Focus in Children with Moderate and Profound Visual Impairments
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2017-10)
It has been consistently reported that an external focus of attention leads to better motor performance than an internal focus, but no research to date has explored this effect in a population with visual impairments ...
Low food security present on Texas college campuses despite high nutrition literacy
(Current Developments in Nutrition, 2020-05-29)
Resistant starch lowers postprandial glucose and leptin in overweight adults consuming a moderate-to-high-fat diet: a randomized-controlled trial
(Nutrition Journal, 2017-02)
Background: High-amylose maize resistant starch type 2 (HAM-RS2) stimulates gut-derived satiety peptides and reduces adiposity in animals. Human studies have not supported these findings despite improvements in ...
Creating Strong Rubrics in Canvas
Creating assignment rubrics clarifies expectations, while increasing efficiency and consistency in grading. A well-formulated rubric provides additional instruction, instant feedback for students, and helps instructors ...
Changes in Motor Skill Proficiency After Equine-Assisted Activities and Brain-Building Tasks in Youth With Neurodevelopmental Disorders
(Frontiers in Veterinary Sciences, 2020-01-31)
There is a lack of current research to support the efficacy of a combination of equine-assisted activities (EAA) and brain building activities to influence motor skill competencies in youth with neurodevelopmental disorders ...
Genetic interactions between the DBL-1/BMP-like pathway and dpy body size–associated genes in Caenorhabditis elegans
Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathways control many developmental and homeostatic processes, including cell size and extracellular matrix remodeling. An understanding of how this pathway itself is controlled ...
Changes in Health and Physical Fitness Parameters After Six Months of Group Exercise Training in Firefighters
Proper training methods may be used as an effective preventative measure for many of the musculoskeletal injuries sustained as a first responder that are inherent to the profession. The traditionally low fitness levels and ...
Feedback regulation of BMP signaling by Caenorhabditis elegans cuticle collagens
Cellular responsiveness to environment, including changes in extracellular matrix (ECM), is critical for normal processes such as development and wound healing, but can go awry, as in oncogenesis and fibrosis. One type ...
Pneumonia: Does Age or Gender Relate to the Presence of an SLP Dysphagia Consultation?
A retrospective study of 1489 hospital records examined the relationship of speech-language pathologist (SLP) consults for dysphagia to age and gender in pneumonia patients from an acute care setting. Age and gender ...
Caenorhabditis elegans egg-laying and brood-size changes upon exposure to Serratia marcescens and Staphylococcus epidermidis are independent of DBL-1 signaling
Effects of S. marcescens and S. epidermidis on egg laying and brood size in wild-type and dbl-1(nk3) populations. (A) Comparison of mean eggs laid between wild-type (WT) and dbl-1(nk3) populations fed on E. coli OP50, S. ...
