The Healthy Lifestyle Study

The purpose of this study is to determine if an internet-based intervention will be effective in improving the lifestyle and weight of an obese employee population. The intervention will ...

Effect of Daily Calorie or Alternate-day Calorie Reductions on Risk for Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer

The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the effects of alternate-day reductions in calorie intake or daily calorie restriction on the risk for cardiovascular disease and cancer...

Hinged Versus Conventional 8 Plate for Correction of Genu Valgum or Varum

To assess the therapeutic effect of hinged 8-figure plate by comparing with the traditional 8-figure plate through a randomized controlled clinical trial by assessing the differences betwe...

Sign and goal tracker rats process differently the incentive salience of a conditioned stimulus.

Sign and goal tracker animals show different behavioral patterns in response to conditioned stimuli, which may be driven by different neural circuits involved in processing stimuli. Here, we explored ...

Can People Accurately Estimate the Calories in Food Images? An Optimised Set of Low- and High- Calorie Images from the food-pics database.

Calorie intake plays an important role in maintaining a healthy weight. As such, researchers often use the calorie content of food as a distinction when investigating appetite related brain processes ...

The effect of spatial location of calorie information on choice, consumption and eye movements.

We manipulated the presence and spatial location of calorie labels on menus while tracking eye movements. A novel "lab-in-the-field" experimental design allowed eye movements to be recorded while part...

Establishing physical activity in breast cancer: self-report versus activity tracker.

Establishing accurate estimates of physical activity at baseline is essential for interventions assessing the potential benefits of exercise in adults with cancer. This study compares self-reported ph...

The Use of Dual-Cell-Tracker Dye Staining for the Identification and Characterization of Peanut-Specific T-Cell Subsets.

Cell-tracker fluorescent dye labeling is widely used for investigating antigen-specific immune responses in vitro and in vivo. Here we describe a development of this technique-the use of dual-cell-tra...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The region in the dorsal ECTODERM of a chordate embryo that gives rise to the future CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Tissue in the neural plate is called the neuroectoderm, often used as a synonym of neural plate.

The head of a long bone that is separated from the shaft by the epiphyseal plate until bone growth stops. At that time, the plate disappears and the head and shaft are united.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

A light and spongy (pneumatized) bone that lies between the orbital part of FRONTAL BONE and the anterior of SPHENOID BONE. Ethmoid bone separates the ORBIT from the ETHMOID SINUS. It consists of a horizontal plate, a perpendicular plate, and two lateral labyrinths.

A malignant olfactory neuroblastoma arising from the olfactory epithelium of the superior nasal cavity and cribriform plate. It is uncommon (3% of nasal tumors) and rarely is associated with the production of excess hormones (e.g., SIADH, Cushing Syndrome). It has a high propensity for multiple local recurrences and bony metastases. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3rd ed, p1245; J Laryngol Otol 1998 Jul;112(7):628-33)
