Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic and glutamatergic neurotransmissions in the prefrontal cortex decreases with age. Further, cognitive function mediated through the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) also declines with age. Although neuroimaging studies have demonstrated decreased levels of these substances, direct neurophysiological data investigating the effect of aging in the DLPFC in human subjects is lacking. The advent of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) combined with electroencephalography (EEG) has allowed for the assessment of functional neurotransmission in vivo...

OBJECTIVE: Cortical excitability differs between treatment responders and nonresponders in new-onset epilepsy. Moreover, during the first 3 years of epilepsy, cortical excitability becomes more abnormal in nonresponders but normalizes in responders. Here, we study chronic active epilepsy, to examine whether cortical excitability continues to evolve over time, in association with epilepsy duration and treatment response. METHODS: We studied 28 normal subjects, 28 patients with moderately controlled epilepsy (≤4 seizures per year) and 40 patients with poorly controlled epilepsy (≥20 or more seizures per year)...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies suggest the importance of distinguishing severity levels of disability. Nevertheless, there is not yet a consensus with regards to an optimal classification. OBJECTIVE: Our study seeks to advance the existing binary definitions towards categorical/ordinal manifestations of disability. METHODS: We define disability according to the WHO's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) using data collected at the baseline wave of the English Longitudinal Study of Aging, a longitudinal study of the non-institutionalized population, living in England...

Gerold Stucki, Jerome Bickenbach
In this methodological note on applying the ICF in rehabilitation, we introduce functioning information as fundamental for the 'learning health system' and the continuous improvement of the health system's response to people's functioning needs by means of the provision of rehabilitation. A learning health system for rehabilitation operates at the micro-level of the individual patient, meso-level of operational management, and the macro-level of policy that guides rehabilitation programming. All three levels rely on the capacity of the informational system of the health system for standardized documentation and coding of functioning information, and the development of national rehabilitation quality management systems...

Decreased voluntary activation contributes to quadriceps weakness following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Alterations in neural excitability are likely responsible for reductions in quadriceps voluntary activation, and may be due to specific alterations in intracortical inhibition and facilitation. Therefore, we sought to determine if intracortical inhibition (SICI) and intracortical facilitation (ICF) associate with quadriceps voluntary activation in individuals with ACLR. Twenty-seven participants with a primary, unilateral ACLR were enrolled in this study...

Adolescence and early adulthood is a critical period for neurophysiological development potentially characterized by an increased susceptibility to the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury. The current study investigated differences in motor cortical physiology and neuroplastic potential across a cohort of young adults with adolescent concussion history and those without. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was used to assess motor evoked potential (MEP) amplitude, short-interval cortical inhibition (SICI) and intracortical facilitation (ICF) before and after intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS)...

Justina Yat-Wa Liu, Ka Wai Ma
BACKGROUND: The Reintegration to Normal Living Index (RNLI) was developed to measure reintegration to normal living after major traumas/illnesses. Its psychometric properties remain unknown when used to measure participation restriction under the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (WHO-ICF) framework. This study examines the psychometric properties of the Chinese version-RNLI to measure WHO-ICF participation restriction among community-dwelling pre-frail and frail older people...

Justina Yat Wa Liu
BACKGROUND: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (WHO-ICF) describes participation restriction as one aspect of disability. Participation restriction refers to health problems that can hinder people's involvement in different life events. It is rational to believe that the prevalence of participation restriction increases among a frail population. However, information about the level of participation restriction among older people, particularly the pre-frail or frail, remains scant...

Immunodeficiency, centromere instability and facial anomalies (ICF) syndrome is a rare, genetically heterogeneous, autosomal recessive disorder. Patients suffer from recurrent infections caused by reduced levels or absence of serum immunoglobulins. Genetically, four subtypes of ICF syndrome have been identified to date: ICF1 (DNMT3B mutations), ICF2 (ZBTB24 mutations), ICF3 (CDCA7 mutations) and ICF4 (HELLS mutations). In this study we describe seven ICF1 patients and six novel missense mutations in DNMT3B, affecting highly conserved residues in the catalytic domain...

BACKGROUND: Immune deficiencies have been associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and are reported to be particularly enriched in patients with very early-onset IBD (VEO-IBD). However, the actual frequency of primary immune deficiencies in an unselected cohort of patients with VEO-IBD is not known, nor is the optimal screening approach for this population. This study was undertaken to identify a diagnostic approach that will enhance identification of children with primary immune deficiencies who present with VEO-IBD...
