Arrhythmias remain a major health problem, causing at least 250,000 deaths annually in the United States. Pharmacological treatments often do more harm than good, and device therapies are limited by high cost and effects on quality of life. Ion channel mutations cause rare inherited arrhythmopathies, but account for only a small fraction of patients with life- threatening arrhythmias and sudden death. Most arrhythmias occur during myocardial ischemia, ... Read More

Partially defective dental restorations might either be treated by complete replacement or by repair of the affected region. Repair restorations are a scientifically proven approach to manage failed restorations, but probably unknown to most patients. Results from this study and findings on the predictors of patients' therapy decisions might improve future patient information documents. Read More

The goal of this study is to increase the efficiency of exposure in virtual reality (VR). Based on the EMDR research the investigators would like to show that the implementation of eye movements during the VR exposure results in a faster physiological relaxation response among probands with spider phobia, which has a positive effect on the subjective and behavioral efficacy of the VR exposure.
