BACKGROUND: Early work has demonstrated the feasibility and acceptance of newborn resuscitation telemedicine programs (NRTPs). The technology requirements for providing this type of emergency telemedicine service are unclear. INTRODUCTION: We hypothesized that during NRTP consults, a wired telemedicine cart would provide a more reliable and higher-quality user experience than a consumer-grade wireless tablet. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective observational study, six spoke sites used consumer-grade wireless tablets during preintervention and wired coder/decoder (CODEC)-based telemedicine carts during postintervention...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we assess whether activation of the brain's reward system in response to alcohol advertisements is associated with college drinking. Previous research has established a relationship between exposure to alcohol marketing and underage drinking. Within other appetitive domains, the relationship between cue exposure and behavioral enactment is known to rely on activation of the brain's reward system. However, the relationship between neural activation to alcohol advertisements and alcohol consumption has not been studied in a nondisordered population...

Emily Yiying Zheng
In Volume 36 of this journal, Yoruk (2014) uses data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 and finds that false ID laws with scanner provisions have large impacts on binge drinking participation, frequency of alcohol consumption and binge drinking frequency among minors. This paper reexamines how false ID laws with scanner provisions affect underage drinking. I first demonstrate that analyses based on NLSY97 data fail falsification exercises testing for significant pre-intervention effects, and that the estimated effects based on these data are highly sensitive to the inclusion of a lead term and to sample selection, which weakens confidence in the large estimated effects reported in Yoruk (2014)...
