Can we improve pain and sleep in elderly individuals with transcranial direct current stimulation? : results from a randomized controlled pilot study
Abstract : Background: The prevalence of chronic pain and sleep disturbances substantially increases with age. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment option for these health issues. However, side effects and drug ...
Relationships between physical activity across lifetime and health outcomes in older adults: results from the NuAge study
Other titre : Relationships between physical activity across lifetime and health outcomes in older adults: Results from the NuAge cohort
Abstract: Objectives: This study aims to (1) describe participation in four physical activity (PA) domains across life and (2) examine the influence of PA during adolescence, early, mid-life, and later adulthood on health ...
Cross-population validation of statistical distance as a measure of physiological dysregulation during aging
Abstract: Measuring physiological dysregulation during aging could be a key tool both to understand underlying aging mechanisms and to predict clinical outcomes in patients. However, most existing indices are either circular ...
Aging across the tree of life: the importance of a comparative perspective for the use of animal models in aging
Abstract: Use of model organisms in aging research is problematic because our ability to extrapolate across the tree of life is not clear. On one hand, there are conserved pathways that regulate lifespan in organisms ...
Inflamm‐aging does not simply reflect increases in pro‐inflammatory markers
Abstract: Many biodemographic studies use biomarkers of inflammation to understand or predict chronic disease and aging. Inflamm-aging, i.e. chronic low-grade inflammation during aging, is commonly characterized by ...
A novel statistical approach shows evidence for multi-system physiological dysregulation during aging
Other titre : A novel measurement approach and evidence for multi-system physiological dysregulation during aging
Abstract: Previous studies have identified many biomarkers that are associated with aging and related outcomes, but the relevance of these markers for underlying processes and their relationship to hypothesized systemic ...
Une recherche-action participative au soutien à domicile : vers des pratiques ergothérapiques axées sur la participation sociale des aînés
Other titre : A participatory action research in home care services: Towards occupational therapy practices fostering older adults’ social participation
(Université de Sherbrooke, 2018)
Pour favoriser la participation sociale des aînés, les ergothérapeutes peuvent offrir des services communautaires tant à l’échelle individuelle que populationnelle. Pourtant, leur pratique courante au soutien à domicile ...
Étude de la réponse antimicrobienne intestinale dans un état sain et dans le vieillissement : nouveaux rôles des sels biliaires
Other titre : Regulation of intestinal antimicrobial response in health and aging : new roles of bile acids
(Université de Sherbrooke, 2017)
La production des protéines et peptides antimicrobiens (AMPP) est un élément très important dans la réponse antimicrobienne intestinale. Les sels biliaires possèdent un métabolisme qui peut être perturbé lors de pathologies ...
Physiological and comparative evidence fails to confirm an adaptive role for aging in evolution
Abstract: The longstanding debate about whether aging may have evolved for some adaptive reason is generally considered to pit evolutionary theory against empirical observations consistent with aging as a programmed aspect ...
Does age affect the relationship between pain and disability? : a descriptive study in individuals suffering from chronic low back pain
Abstract : Background: Previous studies have revealed a weak to moderate relationship between pain and disability in individuals suffering from low back pain (LBP). However, to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated if ...
