Authors: Gardiner-Walsh S, Kemmery M, Compton MV Abstract Faculty shortages in the study of low-incidence sensory disabilities (deafness, blindness, deaf-blindness) constitute personnel preparation challenges, as documented by a variety of organizations. To alleviate this deficit in the low-incidence sensory disability professoriat, the National Leadership Consortium for Sensory Disabilities (NLCSD) was created to support the preparation of preservice researchers in these disciplines. This qualitative study documents the emerging perceptions of research by deafness-focused NLCSD first-year doctoral Fellows during their participation in an online enrichment seminar. Thematic analysis of the online interactions of the Fellows reveals their initial steps in their journey from consumer...

In conclusion, our study revealed abnormal motor behaviour of the upper body in ataxic patients, mainly resulting in a flexed posture and larger oscillations of the head and trunk. The results of the correlation analyses suggest that the longer and more severe the disease, the larger the upper body oscillations and that large trunk oscillations may explain some aspects of gait variability. These results suggest the need of specific rehabilitation treatments or the use of elastic orthoses that may be particularly useful to reduce trunk oscillations and improve dynamic stability.

Authors: Fiedoruk M, Mieczkowska E, Koncki R, Tymecki L Abstract A miniature flow-through detector useful for bimodal, photometric and fluorimetric, determination of phosphates has been developed. This optoelectronic device made of four light emitting diodes (LEDs) integrated in the form of 85µL optical cell is easily applied in flow analysis manifolds. These LEDs play the roles of light source for photometric measurements, fluorescence inductors and detector of absorbance and fluorescence. For photometric mode of determinations a phosphomolybdenum blue method has been applied. The fluorimetric method of phosphate determination is based on quenching of rhodamine fluorescence by the heteropolyacid. The developed detector used in a simple three-channel flow injection analysis (FIA) ...

ConclusionBy using the OCT technique, it was possible to quantify changes in skin roughness and in the distribution of depths of skin wrinkles, with adequate sensitivity. OCT imaging allows the direct visualization of the skin topography with resolution of micrometers, a reliable and interactive tool for clinical use. Therefore, for the first time, we demonstrated the use of OCT technique to verify the efficacy of cosmetic products in real time. (Source: Skin Research and Technology)

Conclusions: Several quantitative and qualitative signs of microglia activation are detected both in the contralateral and OHT eyes. Such activation extended beyond the GCL, involving all retinal layers. Differences between the two eyes could help to elucidate glaucoma pathophysiology. (Source: BioMed Central)
