Over-arousal as a Mechanism Between Alcohol and Intimate Partner Violence

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious public health problem costing $8.3 billion per year with over $6 billion in direct medical and mental health costs alone. Alcohol is present in most incidents of IPV, and contributes to more frequent and severe IPV incidents. These facts, coupled with the fact that there are no effective interventions for IPV, make understanding mechanisms through which alcohol is associated with IPV critical.

Comparing Total Hip Arthroplasty and Hemi-Arthroplasty on Revision Surgery and Quality of Life in Adults With Displaced Hip Fractures (The HEALTH Study)

Each year, hip fracture, an injury that can impair independence and quality of life, occurs in about 280,000 Americans and 36,000 Canadians. By the year 2040, the annual healthcare costs associated with hip fractures are expected to reach $9.8 billion in the United States and $650 million in Canada. It is important to have in place optimal practice guidelines for the surgical handling of this injury. One type of hip fracture, called a displaced femoral neck fracture, is often t...

Testing a Life Skills Application to Address Interpersonal Relationships in College (MKit)

Gait as Predictor of Dementia and Falls. The Gait and Brain Cohort Study

Motor slowing and cognitive slowing are more prevalent as we age. Importantly, the presence of both in an older person increases their risk of having dementia by ten times.
