  4. Tumor microenvironment promotes dicarboxylic acid carrier-mediated transport of succinate to fuel prostate cancer mitochondria.

    American journal of cancer research 5(5):1665 (2015) PMID 26175936 PMCID PMC4497434

    Prostate cancer cells reprogram their metabolism, so that they support their elevated oxidative phosphorylation and promote a cancer friendly microenvironment. This work aimed to explore the mechanisms that cancer cells employ for fueling themselves with energy rich metabolites available in inte...
  5. Nocturia reported in nightly sleep diaries: common occurrence with significant implications?

    Health Psychology 33(11):1362 (2014) PMID 24245840 PMCID PMC4119089

    Nocturia (nocturnal awakenings associated with urination) is so common a nocturnal behavior that its association with poor sleep is often overlooked. This study examined nocturia and its potential role in poor sleep by examining reported nightly awakenings and associated bathroom trips. Sleep di...

  7. The evidence base of sleep restriction therapy for treating insomnia disorder.

    Sleep Medicine Reviews 18(5):415 (2014) PMID 24629826

    Sleep restriction therapy is routinely used within cognitive behavioral therapy to treat chronic insomnia. However, the efficacy for sleep restriction therapy as a standalone intervention has yet to be comprehensively reviewed. This review evaluates the evidence for the use of sleep restriction ...

  10. ACTIGRAPHIC MOTOR ACTIVITY IN MCI PATIENTS CARRYING OUT SHORT FUNCTIONAL ACTIVITY TASKS

    Alzheimer's & Dementia 10(4):P692 (2014)

  11. Effects of body mass index-related disorders on cognition: preliminary results.

    Diabetes Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Targets... 7:145 (2014) PMID 24855383 PMCID PMC4020904

    Well-known risk factors for cognitive impairment are also associated with obesity. Research has highlighted genetic risk factors for obesity, yet the relationship of those risk factors with cognitive impairment is unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the associations between cog...
  12. Actigraphic motor activity in mild cognitive impairment patients carrying out short functional activity tasks: comparison between mild cognitive impairment with and without depressive symptoms.

    Journal of Alzheimer's Disease 40(4):869 (2014) PMID 24577460

    Individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may exhibit changes in motor activity in conducting their activities of daily living. Depression, one of the most frequent neuropsychiatric symptoms, might affect motor activity in MCI. To assess motor activity in MCI subjects carrying out short f...

  14. Longitudinal assessment of sleep disordered breathing in Vietnam veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Nature and Science of Sleep 6:123 (2014) PMID 25378962 PMCID PMC4219637

    Previous work has demonstrated the relatively high prevalence of risk factors for cognitive impairment, such as sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and obesity, in Vietnam War era veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). No data are currently available on the longitudinal stability of S...
