Background: The aim was to assess the feasibility of a single-centre, single-blind, randomized, crossover design to explore the effects of two slow-release dopamine agonists, ropinirole and pramipexole, on cued recall in Parkinson’s disease. As the... Read More about The role of reality monitoring in anosognosia for hemiplegia..

Red Supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet stars: the single massive star perspective (2011)
Journal Article
Meynet, G., Georgy, C., Hirschi, R., Maeder, A., Massey, P., Przybilla, N., & Nieva, M. (2011). Red Supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet stars: the single massive star perspective. Bulletin de la Société Royale des Sciences de Liège, 80, 266-278

We discuss, in the context of the single star scenario, the nature of the progenitors of Red Supergiants (RSG), of Luminous Blue Variables (LBV) and of Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars. These three different populations correspond to evolved phases of Main Sequ... Read More about Red Supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet stars: the single massive star perspective.

Profiling dizziness in older primary care patients: an empirical study (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). Profiling dizziness in older primary care patients: an empirical study. PloS one, 1- 7. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0016481

The diagnostic approach to dizzy, older patients is not straightforward as many organ systems can be involved and evidence for diagnostic strategies is lacking. A first differentiation in diagnostic subtypes or profiles may guide the diagnostic proce... Read More about Profiling dizziness in older primary care patients: an empirical study.

Site-specific integration and expression of an anti-malarial gene in transgenic Anopheles gambiae significantly reduces Plasmodium infections (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). Site-specific integration and expression of an anti-malarial gene in transgenic Anopheles gambiae significantly reduces Plasmodium infections. PloS one, e14587 -?. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0014587

Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes have a devastating impact on global health and this is worsening due to difficulties with existing control measures and climate change. Genetically modified mosquitoes that are refractory to disease transmission are...
