  1. Histogram lies about distribution shape and Pearson's coefficient of variation lies about relative variability

    QUANTITATIVE METHODS FOR PSYCHOLOGY, v.18, n.1, p.91-110, 2022

    Histograms and Pearson's coefficient of variation are among the most popular summary statistics. Researchers use histograms to judge the shape of quantitative data distribution by visual inspection. The coefficient of variation is taken as an estimator of relative variability of these data. We ex...

  2. Acupuncture for Climacteric-Like Symptoms in Breast Cancer Improves Sleep, Mental and Emotional Health: A Randomized Trial

    MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE, v.34, n.1, p.58-65, 2022

    Objective: Breast cancer is the most prevalent malignant neoplasm in women. Optimal treatment frequently includes a hormonal-blockage phase maintained for 5-10 years. Pharmacologic agents used for this blockage induce many climacteric-like symptoms, which often exact a heavy toll on patients' qua...

  3. Comparative effect of dense-and-disperse versus non-repetitive and non-sequential frequencies in electroacupuncture-induced analgesia in a rodent model of peripheral neuropathic pain

    ACUPUNCTURE IN MEDICINE, v.40, n.2, p.169-177, 2022

    Background: Neuropathic pain (NP) is a complex disease that remains challenging to treat. Low-frequency dense-and-disperse (DD) electroacupuncture (EA) has been used as adjuvant therapy for neuropathic pain; however, its analgesic effect decreases as stimulation time increases, or when it is repe...

    Objective The World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following the rapid emergence of neonatal microcephaly in Brazil during the 2015-2016 Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic. In response, a national campaign sought to control Aedes mosquito populations and r...

  6. Acupuncture for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy: a randomised controlled pilot study

    BMJ SUPPORTIVE & PALLIATIVE CARE, v.12, n.1, p.64-72, 2022

    Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) can cause loss of independence and poor quality of life (QoL) due to severe disabilities, but in spite of its importance there is still a lack of data for the management of CIPN. Acupuncture has showed promising results and may be a cost-effective...

  8. Comparison of digital games as a cognitive function assessment tool for current standardized neuropsychological tests

    BRAZILIAN JOURNAL OF ANESTHESIOLOGY, v.72, n.1, p.13-20, 2022

    Abstract Objective: Cognitive dysfunction may occur postoperatively. Fast and efficient assessment of Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction (POCD) can minimize loss of quality of life, and therefore, a study comparing a digital game with standard neuropsychological tests to assess executive, mnemon...

  9. Assessment of a digital game as a neuropsychological test for postoperative cognitive dysfunction

    BRAZILIAN JOURNAL OF ANESTHESIOLOGY, v.72, n.1, p.7-12, 2022

    Abstract Objective: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction may result from worsening in a condition of previous impairment. It causes greater difficulty in recovery, longer hospital stays, and consequent delay in returning to work activities. Digital games have a potential neuromodulatory and rehabi...

  10. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Reduces Anxiety, Depression and Plasmatic Corticosterone in a Rat Model of Atypical Generalized Epilepsy

    NEUROSCIENCE, v.480, p.32-41, 2022

    Affective disorders (i.e. anxiety and depression) are commonly observed in patients with epilepsy and induce seizure aggravation. Animal models of epilepsy that exhibit affective disorder features are essential in developing new neuromodulatory treatments. GEAS-W rats (Generalized Epilepsy with A...
