The Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI; Fisher & Griswold, 2008) assesses a person's performance of social interaction skills in the natural context with typical social partners during any area of occupation. We used Rasch analysis of 175 observations of 128 people, ages 4-73, to examine internal scale validity, the items' ...

The American Occupational Therapy Association's Centennial Vision articulates the need for occupational therapy to be science driven and evidence based in major practice areas. This article provides a review on the state of the occupational therapy research published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT) in the area of ...

Occupational therapy practitioners may encounter challenges when they try to incorporate evidence into practice. To embrace evidence-based practice (EBP), clinicians must have readily available, relevant, and concisely summarized evidence. Although researchers have described the importance and process of EBP, less has been written about how to efficiently integrate evidence into ...

Experience sampling examined how temporality, the lived experience of time, varied related to specific activity qualities and experiences in everyday life. Thirty-five students completed electronic surveys regarding their current activity and feelings and rated the activity's novelty and complexity, their depth of emotional and intellectual engagement, the direction and depth ...

Occupational therapists are encouraged to reflect on doing, being, and becoming not only as it relates to the development of their profession but also in their own lives (Wilcock 1999). This article is a description of that process for me and my family in our journey through perinatal loss. This ...

Reactions to death have been studied extensively from psychological, behavioral, and physiological perspectives. Occupational adaptation to loss has received scant attention. Qualitative research was undertaken to identify and describe occupational responses in bereavement. The constant comparative approach was used to analyze and interpret the occupational responses. Adaptive strategies of occupational ...

OBJECTIVE. We examined the relationship between handwriting and keyboarding performance and between these writing modes and underlying performance skills.
George, Stacey - - 2010
OBJECTIVES. We sought to determine the criterion validity of the Useful Field of View (UFOV) assessment and Stroke Drivers' Screening Assessment (SDSA) through comparison to the results of on-road assessment.
Hunt, Linda - - 2010
We investigated how induced blur affects performance on the Trail Making Test and Digit Symbol Test routinely used in occupational therapy cognitive evaluations. The study used a factorial design with both age (young and old adults) and simulated blur levels of near visual acuity (20/50 and 20/100) manipulated between participants. ...

OBJECTIVE. We investigated motor control and muscle activation when reaching for and grasping objects with a reacher compared with the unaided hand.
Higashijima, Misako - - 2010
Objective numerical data on swallowing function are needed to aid in eating and swallowing intervention and preventive rehabilitation. Using noninvasive methods, the influences of age and differences in size of water bolus on laryngeal activity and respiratory activity were examined in healthy young and older women. Swallowing function was influenced ...

Despite the importance of stomata in leaf functioning, and despite the recent interest in interspecific leaf trait covariation in functional ecology, little is known about how stomatal density relates to other leaf traits in a broad interspecific context. This is especially important because stomatal density has been widely used to ...

Acacia tortilis (Forsskal) Hayne subsp. raddiana (Savi) Brenan [Acacia raddiana Savi s.s.] is the most widely spread woody legume in desert regions of Algeria. As a well-adapted species, it represents a good potential for forestation or reforestation in these areas. Its capacity to establish a nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with rhizobia constitutes ...

Limited information is available for the diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in most tropical soils. To assess the biodiversity of AMF in a sclerophyllous shrubland ecosystem, an exhaustive collection of spores from soil collected in the Venezuelan Guayana was undertaken. Spores were collected from the first 15 cm of ...

A new species of Haptoglossa, Haptoglossa beakesii sp. nov., a nematode parasite found in a sample of compost and rabbit dung at the University of Sussex campus, is described. The species, which infects nematodes of the genus Rhabditis, is unusual because it releases non-motile spores into a retaining vesicle. Aspects ...

The allometric effects of Corispermum macrocarpum Bunge in response to soil nutrient content, water content, and population density were compared in a greenhouse experiment. The results showed that biomass allocation was size-dependent. The plasticity of roots, leaf allocation, and reproductive effort was "true" plasticity (i.e., changing biomass allocation in response ...

The septal pore ultrastructure of non-ascogenous and reproductive hyphae, as well as development of the spore wall were examined in the truffle Mattirolomyces terfezioides (Mattir.) E. Fisch. (Ascomycota, Pezizales, Pezizaceae) and compared with other pezizalean taxa. The septal pore in ascogenous hyphae of M. terfezioides is a uni- or bi-convex ...

To clarify phylogenetic relationships among grass (Poaceae) subfamilies and to better resolve the placement of Poaceae in Poales, we surveyed 17 plastid genes and associated noncoding regions (~15.5 kb per taxon, about 1/10 of the plastid genome) for exemplar representatives from 10 grass subfamilies and a broad sample of related ...

Orchids are among the most prized ornamental plants in many societies throughout the world. As a result, consumer demands have created a significant pressure on wild populations of many species, including Cymbidium goeringii Rchb. f., a rare terrestrial orchid endemic in China, Korea, and Japan. To help conserve natural populations ...

Structure, as well as spatial and temporal heterogeneity in plant species composition were studied in a Festuca hallii (Vasey) Piper--dominated Prairie in Canada for 6 years following burning before, during, or after the growing season on sites burned 1x or 3x. Structure, spatial heterogeneity, and temporal heterogeneity were never (P ...
