Prior studies have shown that patients suffering from chronic Low Back Pain (cLBP) have impaired somatosensory processing including reduced tactile acuity, i.e. reduced ability to resolve fine spatial details with the perception of touch. The central mechanism(s) underlying reduced tactile acuity are unknown but may include changes in specific brain circuitries (e.g. neuroplasticity in primary somatosensory cortex, S1). Furthermore, little is known about the linkage between changes in tactile ac...

Background: Recently, subjective cognitive decline(SCD) has been described as the earliest at-risk state of Alzheimer's disease(AD), and drawn attention of investigators. Studies suggested that SCD-community individuals may be at an earlier state of SCD than SCD-clinic patients, therefore, to investigate the early changes of the brain may provide guidance for intervention and treatment of the disease. We sought to investigate the changes of structure and functional connectivity of the hippocampu...

BACKGROUND: In experimental placebo and nocebo studies, neutral control treatments are often administered for comparison with active treatments, but are of little interest, as, on average, they result in little change. Yet, when considered at an individual level, they fluctuate between baseline and subsequent measurements and may reveal important information about participants' placebo/nocebo responding tendencies. METHODS: In a paradigm involving application of creams paired with positive, nega...

ABSTRACT Yogurt making traditionally relies on the simultaneous utilization of 2 starters: Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, but these 2 strains normally metabolize the glucose portion of lactose and release galactose into extracellular medium, resulting in high levels of residual galactose and unfermented lactose in yogurt, which leads to several industrial and health concerns. In this study, we found that Lactobacillus plantarum could effectively metabolize both lactose ...
Despite its rarity, insulinoma is the most common type of pancreatic endocrine neoplasm, with an occurrence of 1 to 5 per million per year in the population. Surgical resection or enucleation is the first line of curative treatment choice for insulinoma. Eight patients with symptomatic insulinomas treated by radiofrequency ablation have been described since 2009. In the past two years, we treated two patients with symptomatic insulinomas (one in the pancreatic tail and the other in the pancreati...

The goal of this study was to determine the neural correlates of successful doctor–patient interactions. We performed an experimental neuroimaging study where medical doctors (MDs) performed a treatment task while their brain activation pattern was measured, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). MDs (25–37 years old) first performed a standardized clinical exam of a “professional patient”. Unbeknownst to the doctors, the professional patient was a confederate that rated the doctors...
