The overall aim of the current study is to determine if flavorings contribute to the initiation and maintenance of waterpipe (WP) smoking and also influence how a WP is smoked, which has i...
- The investigators hope their study will answer the question of whether or not fetal testosterone levels are increased in female newborns exposed to nicotine as a result of mat...
This study is aimed at investigating three new tests that will form part of a computerized tool designed to test brain/cognitive functioning. The system will be evaluated along with the te...
The purpose of the study is to determine the prevalence of malocclusion among a group of Egyptian children with digit sucking aged 3 to 6 years.
This project addresses the need for evidence about the effect of flavoring manipulation on waterpipe smokers' satisfaction, dependence, harm perception, and toxicants exposure. Specificall...
Evolutionary simplification of autopodial structures is a major theme in studies of body-form evolution. Previous studies on amniotes have supported Morse's law, that is, that the first digit reduced ...
People with schizophrenia have impairments of target-speech recognition (TSR) in noisy environments with multiple people talking. This study investigated whether the TSR impairment in schizophrenia is...
Sex differences are often reported in digit lengths and digit ratio (2D:4D). However, the ontogeny of these sex differences and their interrelationships are less well known.
Cigarette smoking has been shown to be associated with changes in coagulation factors in the circulation and the subsequent thrombosis development. In this study, the impact of waterpipe smoking on th...
The ability to arrange thoughts and actions in an appropriate serial order (the problem of serial order) is essential to complex behaviors such as language, reasoning and cognitive planning. Patients ...
The innermost digit of the foot in PRIMATES.
The first digit on the radial side of the hand which in humans lies opposite the other four.
A chromosome disorder associated with TRISOMY of all or part of CHROMOSOME 13. Clinical manifestations include CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS (e.g., PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS), facial malformations (e.g., CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; COLOBOMA; MICROPHTHALMIA); HYPOTONIA, digit malformations (e.g., POLYDACTYLY or SYNDACTYLY), and SEIZURES and severe INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY associated with NERVOUS SYSTEM MALFORMATIONS.
A decrease in the incidence and frequency of SMOKING. Smoking reduction differs from SMOKING CESSATION in that the smoker continues to smoke albeit at a lesser frequency without quitting.
A zinc finger transcription factor that contains five CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS and binds to the GLI consensus sequence 5'-GGGTGGTC-3'. The full-length protein functions as a transcriptional activator whereas the truncated C-terminal form functions as a transcriptional repressor of the Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) signaling pathway; a balance between these two forms is critical for limb and digit development. GLI3 also plays a critical role in the differentiation and proliferation of CHONDROCYTES.
