Corneal Endothelial Blebs Induced in Scleral Lens WearersSIGNIFICANCE In the bleb phenomenon, some endothelial cells transiently lose their specular reflection. This has been reported during contact lens wear and goggle-induced hypoxia or hypercapnia. PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to determine whether blebs appear after scleral lens wear and if their appearance is influenced by lens clearance and to compare bleb and cell sizes. METHODS Twenty-one subjects were fitted with two similar scleral...

The perineal midsagittal view in male fetuses — pivotal for assessing genitourinary disordersAbstractA wide range of genitourinary pathologies can be diagnosed in utero, from a simple vesicoureteral reflux to a more complex disorder of sexual differentiation. The prognosis and neonatal management of these conditions differ significantly. Evaluation of the fetal perineal anatomy is paramount to making the right diagnosis. The aim of this pictorial essay is to show sonographers how to acquire a perineal...

The impact of climate change on migration: a synthesis of recent empirical insightsAbstractConcern about the human impact of climate change has led to predictions of how people living in areas vulnerable to drought, flood, and temperature changes will respond to such events. Early studies warned that climate change would lead to dramatic increases in human migration as households became unable to adapt to the impacts of climate change. More recently, empirical studies focused on observed climate...

Effect of Stimulation Rate on Speech Understanding in Older Cochlear-Implant UsersObjectives: Cochlear implants (CIs) are considered a safe and effective intervention for more severe degrees of hearing loss in adults of all ages. Although older CI users ≥65 years of age can obtain large benefits in speech understanding from a CI, there is a growing body of literature suggesting that older CI users may not perform as well as younger CI users. One reason for this potential age-related limitation could...

 bioRxiv Subject Collection: Evolutionary Biology,Modeling phylogenetic biome shifts on a planet with a past [NEW RESULTS]The spatial distribution of biomes has changed considerably over deep time, so the geographical opportunity for an evolutionary lineage to shift into a new biome depends on how the availability and connectivity of biomes has varied temporally. To better understand how lineages shift between biomes in space and time, we developed a phylogenetic biome shift model in which each lineage...

Moreover, healthy controls may develop abnormal esophageal acid exposure after sleep deficiency. Thus, sleep deficiency appears to be an important underlying mechanism for abnormal esophageal...
