Despite the advances in stroke rehabilitation, post-stroke upper extremity impairment is still a major challenge. Increasing evidence can be found supporting stimulation of the afferent receptor enhances neuroplasticity in the brain. Studies have suggested multisensory stimulation could promote motor learning by re-establishing the disrupted sensorimotor loop due to stroke and enhance neuroplasticity. The objective of the study was to examine the effect of multisensory stimula...

The optimal analgesic peripheral nerve block (or combinations thereof) are undefined for clavicle fractures, the most frequent fracture in the human population. This goal of this study is to determine whether interscalene block (ISB), superficial cervical plexus block (SCPB), or both provide the best analgesia for lateral and midshaft clavicular fractures, respectively.
An observational two-center case-control study exploring the clinical impact of double-carbapenem use in a population of critically il patients with severe carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infection
The purpose of this study is to look at the levels of three HIV medications: dolutegravir, darunavir and cobicistat in the blood after drug intake has been stopped, in order to understand how long these drugs persist in the blood. The study will specifically look at blood levels of these three drugs after taking them every day for 14 days. There will be two groups. Participants in Group 1 will take dolutegravir everyday for 14 days, then nothing for 7 days, then dolutegravir a...
The main objective of the proposed research is to extend our understanding of how gesture and language interact, focusing on the role of cognitive embodiment in this interaction, and to explore the neural systems that support links between language and actions systems.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sevoflurane-only Volatile induction and maintenance anesthesia (VIMA) and total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) using only propofol in adult patients scheduled for elective lobectomy surgery. We would like to know if there is a difference in blood glucose levels during surgery and whether the cause is due to the difference in secretion of insulin and cortisol. In addition, we aim to contribute to the improvement...
The overall objective of this study is to examine the effect of polyamine supplementation on cognitive performance and further characterization of individuals with subjective cognitive decline.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the utility of the FlowMet™ device in the assessment of perfusion in subjects suspected of or being treated for critical limb ischemia, in comparison to other gold standard technologies, such as ankle brachial pulse index (ABI), skin perfusion pressure (SPP), toe brachial pulse index (TBI), transcutaneous oxygen tension (TcP02), and angiography currently in use in the clinic.
