Treatment of reading impairment after stroke Purpose of review: Reading impairments after left or right hemisphere stroke are common yet receive little attention from clinicians and therapists. In this review, we focus on the classification of acquired alexia and the current theory and practice underlying the rehabilitation of this diverse set of disorders. Recent findings: The underlying behavioural impairments that dictate reading ability in the acquired alexias are becoming better understood; this, in turn, has led to targeted therapies being undertaken, mainly on a single subject basis.

Library Technology Guides: Key Resources in Library Automation The website aims to provide comprehensive and objective information related to the field of library automation. It provides information on the technology products, companies, and trends that impact libraries. Whether you are in the process of selecting a library automation system, or just want to keep up with developments in the field, Library Technology Guides is the place to start.

The force necessarily exerted at close distances by such aetheric constrictions was incalculably large.

Publications - Journals by Subject Ocean Science (OS) is an international open access journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research on all aspects of ocean science, experimental, theoretical and laboratory. OS covers the fields ocean physics, ocean chemistry, biological oceanography, air-sea interactions, ocean models (physical, chemical, biological and biochemical), coastal and shelf edge processes, and paleoceanography. Aims & Scope | Editorial Board | Online Library OS | Online Library OSD Multisensory Integration and Child Neurodevelopment Although MSI capacity has been extensively studied in adults, little has been done to study it in young children. The first important question would be: Does this capacity exist at birth, or does it develop as a result of experience? One school of thought (early integration) argues for the innate nature of MSI while another (late integration) emphasizes the role of experience in the development of MSI. 2.1.1.

Guide to Law Online - Law Library of Congress The Guide to Law Online, prepared by the Law Library of Congress Public Services Division, is an annotated guide to sources of information on government and law available online. It includes selected links to useful and reliable sites for legal information. The Guide to Law Online is an annotated compendium of Internet links; a portal of Internet sources of interest to legal researchers. Although the Guide is selective, inclusion of a site by no means constitutes endorsement by the Law Library of Congress. In compiling this list, emphasis wherever possible has been on sites offering the full texts of laws, regulations, and court decisions, along with commentary from lawyers writing primarily for other lawyers. Materials related to law and government that were written by or for lay persons also have been included, as have government sites that provide even quite general information about themselves or their agencies.

GIS And Base Map Data For The U.S While an employee at CAST Stephan Pollard created two GIS data resource guides which were for several years CAST's most accessed web pages. They were: Starting the Hunt Japan GIS/Mapping Sciences Resource Guide These provided links to a wide range of data including GIS, remote sensing, geospatial data products, maps, activities and information sources. Journals PLOS publishes seven peer-reviewed open-access journals. The journals vary in their selectivity and contain differing amounts of commentary articles from opinion leaders in a variety of scientific disciplines.The journals are editorially independent. They include PLOS ONE, which publishes all rigorous science across the full range of life and health sciences; the community journals (PLOS Genetics, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Pathogens, and PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases); and our flagship journals, PLOS Medicine and PLOS Biology, highly selective journals publishing fewer than 10% of submissions along with a range of informative and influential non-research content. You can search the journals for specific articles here and you can sign up for e-mail Content Alerts for all our journals here. We encourage authors to consider carefully each journal’s scope before submission in order to minimize delays in the review process.

What is the role of the medial olivocochlear system in speech-in-noise processing? Abstract The medial olivocochlear (MOC) bundle reduces the gain of the cochlear amplifier through reflexive activation by sound. Physiological results indicate that MOC-induced reduction in cochlear gain can enhance the response to signals when presented in masking noise. Some previous studies suggest that this “antimasking” effect of the MOC system plays a role in speech-in-noise perception. Current Seismicity The USGS Earthquake Hazards Program is part of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), established by Congress in 1977. We monitor and report earthquakes, assess earthquake impacts and hazards, and research the causes and effects of earthquake. Significant Earthquakes Past 30 Days
