Article
Background: Sevoflurane-induced anaesthesia generates frontal alpha oscillations as early as 6 months of age, whereas strong delta oscillations are present at birth. In adults, delta oscillations and alpha oscillations are coupled: the phase of delta waves modulates the amplitude of alpha oscillations in a phenomenon known as phase-amplitude coupl...
Article
Background Spectral-based EEG is used to monitor anaesthetic state during surgical procedures in adults. Spectral EEG features that can resemble the patterns seen in adults emerge in children after the age of 10 months and cannot distinguish wakefulness and anaesthesia in the youngest children. There is a need to explore alternative EEG measures. W...
Article
Objective To examine the hypothesis that small vessel disease disrupts postural networks in older adults with unexplained dizziness in the elderly (UDE). Methods Simultaneous electroencephalography and postural sway measurements were undertaken in upright, eyes closed standing, and sitting postures (as baseline) in 19 younger adults, 33 older cont...

Older HIV+ participants and participants with very low CD4 nadir demonstrated decline in learning and working memory Non-Cognitive Predictors of Student Success: A Predictive Validity Comparison Between Domestic and International Students AIMS • To explore memory patterns in a group of Polish HIV+ men receiving cART. • Examine associations between...
Conference Paper
Objectives: To examine the contributing role of combination antiretroviral treatment (cART) schemes on brain and cognitive function in HIV-infected (HIV+) individuals. Materials: Data from 108 individuals included 54 HIV+/cART+ individuals aged 24-75 years (M=41, SD=12), infected with HIV for 1-21 years (M=6, SD=5) and receiving cART for 1-8 years...
Article
Recovery from a stroke is a dynamic time-dependent process, in which the central nervous system reorganises to accommodate for the impact of the injury. The purpose of this paper is to review recent longitudinal studies of changes in brain connectivity after stroke. A systematic review of research papers reporting functional or effective connectivi...

Objective: Findings on the influence of age and HIV on brain and cognition remain equivocal, particularly in aviremic subjects without other age or HIV-related comorbidities. We aimed to (a) examine the effect of HIV status and age on structural brain measurements and cognition, and (b) apply the machine learning technique to identify brain morphom...

It is yet unclear if people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV+) on stable, combined antiretroviral therapies (cARTs) decline with age at the same or greater rate than healthy people. In this study, we examined independent and interactive effects of HIV, age, and HIV-related clinical parameters on neuropsychological functioning and bra...
Article
Background: Muscle co-contraction is a strategy of increasing movement accuracy and stability employed in dealing with perturbation of movement. It is often seen in neuropathological populations. The direction of movement influences the pattern of co-contraction, but not all movements are easily achievable for populations with motor deficits. Mani...
