How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Background and objectives: Cardiovascular risk factors have a recently established association with cognitive decline and dementia, yet most studies examine this association through cross-sectional data, precluding an understanding of the longitudinal dynamics of such risk. The current study aims to explore how the ongoing trajectory of cardiovasc...
This chapter provides an introduction to (1) the fundamental components of neuroanatomy and brain function, (2) how brain processes give rise to behaviors that are relevant to study from a neuroergonomic perspective, and (3) how these brain processes can be detected and investigated with neuroimaging methods typically employed in neuroergonomics.
Schizophrenia is a highly heritable disorder with a heterogeneous symptomatology. Research increasingly indicates the importance of the crucial and often overlooked glial perturbations within schizophrenia. Within this study, we examined an isoform of quaking (a gene encoding an RNA-binding protein that is exclusively expressed in glial cells), kno...
Quaking (QKI) is a gene exclusively expressed within glial cells. QKI has previously been implicated in various neurological disorders and diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), a condition for which increasing evidence suggests a central role of glia cells. The objective of the present study was to investigate the expression levels of QKI a...
Quaking (QKI) is an RNA-binding protein involved in post-transcriptional mRNA processing. This gene is found to be associated with several human neurological disorders. Early expression of QKI proteins in the developing mouse neuroepithelium, together with neural tube defects in Qk mouse mutants, suggest the functional requirement of Qk for the est...
Genomic organization of human QKI and zebrafish qki. Known and predicted splice variants of the human QKI and the three zebrafish qki genes are detailed. The splice acceptor (sa) and splice donor (sd) sites for each exon and the exon length (in nucleotides) are compared between species. (TIF)
Objective: Bimanual movements are a fundamental motor skill. Whereas substantial research is available from right-handers, much less is known from left-handers. Accordingly, in the present electroencephalography (EEG) study we evaluated bimanual behavior in left- versus right-handers. Method: Thirteen left-handers and 13 right-handers took part...
