Brain Activity Associated with Stimulation Therapy of the Visual Borderzone in Hemianopic Stroke Patients Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair. Mar-Apr, 2008 | Pubmed ID: 17698955 Visual restoration therapy is a home-based treatment program intended to expand visual fields of hemianopic patients through repetitive stimulation of the borderzone adjacent to the blind field. We hypothesized that the training itself would induce visual field location-specific changes in the brain's response to stimuli, a phenomenon demonstrated in animal experiments but never in humans with brain injury.
Investigation on Reference Intervals and Regional Differences of Platelet Indices in Healthy Chinese Han Adults Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis. Jan, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 24390860 Reference intervals are important for interpretation of clinical laboratory tests. The platelet (PLT) indices such as the mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) are newer hematological parameters, which have been recently reported as clinically valuable biomarkers. However, there are not many studies that have estimated the reference intervals for these parameters in healthy Chinese Han adults.
