(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Objectives: To evaluate changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) during wakeful rest in older subjects with mild to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and healthy controls, and to identify markers of OSA severity ...
A prospective two-year examination of cognitive and behavioral correlates of provoked vestibulodynia outcomes
Background: Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a common genital pain disorder in women that is associated with sexual dysfunction and lowered sexual satisfaction. A potentially applicable cognitive-behavioral model of chronic ...
Attachment, sexual assertiveness and sexual outcomes in women with provoked vestibulodynia and their partners : a mediation model

Objective and subjective measures of sleep among preschoolers: Disentangling attachment security and dependency
Attachment and sleep among toddlers: disentangling attachment security and dependency.

Partner behavioral responses to pain mediate the relationship between partner pain cognitions and pain outcomes in women with provoked vestibulodynia
Partner behavioral responses to pain can have a significant impact on patient pain and depression, but little is known about why partners respond in specific ways. Using a cognitive-behavioral model, the present study ...
Are NREM sleep characteristics associated to subjective sleep complaints after mild traumatic brain injury?
Sleep after mild TBI
Sleep complaints are common after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). While recent find-ings suggest that sleep macro-architecture is preserved in mTBI, features of non-rapid eye movement(NREM) sleep micro-architecture ...
Sleep in the acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury : a snapshot of polysomnography
Sleep and traumatic brain injury
Background and Objectives. The onset of pervasive sleep-wake disturbances associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is poorly understood. This study aimed to (a) determine the feasibility of using polysomnography in ...
Longitudinal gray matter contraction in three variants of primary progressive aphasia : a tensor-based morphometry study
The present study investigated the pattern of longitudinal changes in cognition and anatomy in three variants of primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Eight patients with the non-fluent variant of PPA (nfvPPA), 13 patients ...
Are primary and secondary provoked vestibulodynia two different entities? A comparison of pain, psychosocial and sexual characteristics
Introduction Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is suspected to be the most frequent cause of vulvodynia in premenopausal women. Based on the onset of PVD relative to the start of sexual experience, PVD can be divided into ...
A secure base from which to regulate: Attachment security in toddlerhood as a predictor of executive functioning at school entry
