          Abstract

          To explore quality of life (QoL) improvement after treatment of patients with chronic olfactory disorders; and to correlate QoL with olfactory rehabilitation and evaluate olfactory improvement values over which QoL outcomes are significantly recovered.

          The role of the amygdala in emotional processing: a quantitative meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging studies.

          Functional neuroimaging studies have provided strong support for a critical role of the amygdala in emotional processing. However, several controversies remain in terms of whether different factors-such as sex, valence and stimulus type-have an effect on the magnitude and lateralization of amygdala responses. To address these issues, we conducted a meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging studies of visual emotional perception that reported amygdala activation. Critically, unlike previous neuroimaging meta-analyses, we took into account the magnitude (effect size) and reliability (variance) associated with each of the activations. Our results confirm that the amygdala responds to both positive and negative stimuli, with a preference for faces depicting emotional expressions. We did not find evidence for amygdala lateralization as a function of sex or valence. Instead, our findings provide strong support for a functional dissociation between left and right amygdala in terms of temporal dynamics. Taken together, results from this meta-analysis shed new light on several of the models proposed in the literature regarding the neural basis of emotional processing.

            Validating and norming of the Greek SF-36 Health Survey.

            The main objective of this study was to validate the Greek SF-36 Health Survey and to provide general population normative data. The survey was administered to a stratified representative sample (n = 1426) of the general population residing in the broader Athens area and the response rate was 70.6%. Statistical analysis, according to documented procedures developed within the IQOLA Project, was performed. The missing value rate was very low, ranging from 0.1 to 1.3% at the item level. Multitrait scaling analysis confirmed the hypothesized scale structure of the SF-36. Cronbach's alpha coefficient met the criterion (>0.70) for group analysis in all eight scales. Known group comparisons yielded consistent support of construct validity of the SF-36. Significant statistical differences in mean scores were observed in relation to demographic and social characteristics such as gender, age, education and marital status.

              The united allergic airway: Connections between allergic rhinitis, asthma, and chronic sinusitis

              Background: The united allergic airway is a theory that connects allergic rhinitis (AR), chronic rhinosinusitis, and asthma, in which seemingly disparate diseases, instead of being thought of separately, are instead viewed as arising from a common atopic entity. Objective: This article describes patients with such diseases; explores ideas suggesting a unified pathogenesis; elucidates the various treatment modalities available, emphasizing nasal corticosteroids and antihistamines; and provides an update of the literature. Methods: A literature review was conducted. Conclusion: The aggregation of research suggests that AR, asthma, and chronic rhinosinusitis are linked by the united allergic airway, a notion that encompasses commonalities in pathophysiology, epidemiology, and treatment.
