Researchers from across the world are seeking to develop effective treatments for the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, which arose as a major public health issue in 2019, and was declared a pandemic in early 2020. The pro-inflammatory cytokine storm, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), multiple-organ failure, neurologic...
Article
The current evidence supporting nonpharmacologic treatment of dementia has focused mainly on environmental or interactive interventions, e.g., music, sensory stimulation, simulated presence, and validation therapies. Exercise and light therapy improved/maintained activities of daily living, while cognitive stimulation, exercise and reminiscence imp...
Article
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder attributable to neurofibrillary tangles, senile neuritic plaques, and a reduction of neurons and synapses. Because the etiopathogenesis of AD is complex and its associated risk factors are not well understood, clinical interventions to effectively treat AD are being developed. Thus, intervent...

Background Transcranial near-infrared (tNIR) stimulation was proven to be a safe, reliable, and effective treatment for cognitive and behavioral symptoms of dementia. Dementia patients of different genders differ in terms of gross anatomy, biochemistry, genetic profile, clinical presentations, and socio-psychological status. Studies of the tNIR eff...
Article

Dementia is a complex syndrome with various presentations depending on the underlying pathologies. Low emission of transcranial near-infrared (tNIR) light can reach human brain parenchyma and be beneficial to a number of neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. We hereby examined the safety and potential therapeutic benefits of tNIR light stim...

Aging, as a physiological phenomenon, is complicated with secondary problems that cause enormous health, economic, social, and emotional costs. Neuropsychological problems are among the most important health threats in the aged population. Numerous pharmacological and nonpharmacological approaches have been evaluated to boosting of brain function i...

Objective: A review of photobiomodulation (PBM) in Alzheimer's dementia is submitted. The addition of PBM in neurodegenerative diseases is a dual modality that is at present gaining traction as it is safe, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory for treating neurodegeneration with photons that stimulate mitochondria increasing adenosine triphosphate and p...

Full-text available
The Dermatoglyphic (Fingerprint) evidence for a congenital syndrome of constipation is reviewed and the association of this in women with Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) and Obsessive Compulsion Disorder (OCD) is presented. Colonic inertia in young severely constipated women may occur and the pathophysiology of colonic inertia and...

The focus of this chapter is the visible and noninvisible near infrared electromagnetic frequency spectrum. We explore the biological and neurophysiological impact generated by visible and near infrared light frequencies with specific attention to therapeutic applications in the treatment of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Article
Full-text available
Alzheimer’s disease(AD) is a common, chronic expensive debilitating neurodegenerative disease with no current treatments to prevent the physical deterioration of the brain and the consequent cognitive deficits. The current pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease is the accumulation of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) of hyperphosphorylated tau protein...
Article
1. The percentage of reward (80%) utilized in this study precludes a significant learning effect in an operant conditioning paradigm. This article failed to demonstrate acquisition at the neural level for the stimulus being trained, which is the most basic principle of operant learning. 2–6 In both respondent and operant conditioning, an individual...
Article
Reviews the book Experiential Learning in Organizations: Applications of the Tavistock Group Relations Approach by Laurence J. Gould, Lionel F. Stapley, and Mark Stein (Eds). This volume (see record 2004-15125-000 ) fills a long-recognized gap in the literature on group relations training, the transfer of principles and insights from the Tavistock...

The supervision group as a transitional object, allowing for the exploration and expression of feelings relating to the conflictual bind, enabling the intern to cope with the dual roles of university student and agency professional.
Article
As part of Sandia`s Corporate Diversity Program, a Diversity Action Team was assembled to study the impact of diversity on teamwork. We reviewed the available literature on successful teaming, both with homogeneous (more alike than different) and heterogeneous teams. Although many principles and guidelines for successful homogeneous teams also appl...
Article
In September, 1994, Sandia`s Diversity Leadership and Education Outreach Center arid the Corporate Diversity Team commissioned a Diversity Action Team (DAT-Phase II) to address the area of team- work. The goal of this DAT was to identify ways to capitalize on the diversity of people to enhance team success at Sandia. Given a six- month lifetime and...

Question
The DF has always been a factor that I believe can serve as a basic efficacy metric in that it describes the system's capacity for efficient response to change in state.
Question
We are seeking to create simple yes/no responses to questions addressed to people with severe brain trauma who can not speak or otherwise indicate discriminative responses.

Project
We have Zoom conference meetings where researchers have a forum to present their research in PERSON to their peers and we have a lively discourse after and during!! Its more like a one hour presentation so we get into details and we can ask questions. We also have a place to postulate new theories and express our opinions. This field needs standards and they should be set by the scientific experts.
Project
Home based therapy twice daily with NIR phototherapy helmet for 90 days. Measures of forearm movement, gait and EEG are independent measures.
