    1. The problem of induction was solved, in principle, by the Reverend Thomas Bayes in the middle of the 18th century. He showed how to convert the probability of the observations given a hypothesis (the deductive problem) to what we actually want, the probability that the hypothesis is true given some observations (the inductive problem). But how to use his famous theorem in practice has been the subject of heated debate ever since.

    1. There is something about growing older, or growing up, that makes the addiction less compelling, less attractive, while one’s perspective on one’s life and one’s future continues to evolve. While repetition drives habit-formation, it also promotes boredom, frustration and despair, and these negative emotions impel us to keep on trying something we might have failed at many times before.

    1. A partir de ese marco, la epidemiología convencional cayó en una distorsión múltiple de la metodología, posible de sintetizar en los siguientes cinco elementos: Una explicación fenoménica, reduccionista y fragmentaria de la realidad y la determinación de la salud Primacía absoluta de la asociación causa-efecto como gran organizadora y lógica del universo epidemiológico Reificación de la relación causa-efecto como artefacto formal aplicado para identificar factores de riesgo La reducción de la noción de exposición/vulnerabilidad a un problema esencialmente individual de naturaleza probabilística A la hora de organizar la práctica epidemiológica, la reducción de ésta en acciones funcionales sobre factores de riesgo.

    2. The use of thimerosal,a vaccine preservative that contains ethyl mercury, has in asomewhat similar way been linked to a rise in incidence ofASD. Because mercury, in high dosage, can cause neurode-velopmental sequelae, there is greater biological plausibility inthis argument. However, discontinuation of the thimerosal-con-taining vaccines in Denmark was followed by an increase inthe incidence of ASD and not by the predicted decrease(Atladóttir, Parner, Schendel et al., 2007; Madsen, Lauritsen,Pedersen et al., 2003).

    3. The increase, par-ticularly since the early 1980s, has led to claims that specific environmental factors such as the use of mumps–measles–rubella (MMR) triple vaccine are a major factor (Roger,2000; Wakefield, Murch, Anthony et al., 1998). However,empirical evidence for these claims is absent (Rutter, 2005).For example, a total population study in the Yokohama dis-trict, Japan, was able to examine the cumulative incidence of ASD before the introduction of the MMR vaccination andafter its withdrawal (Honda, Shimizu, & Rutter, 2005). Thefindings indicated a continuing rise in incidence of ASD evenafter the withdrawal of the vaccination. Further, the incidencepattern of ASD associated with regression was similar to thatof ASD as a whole. It is also relevant that an independent studyof Wakefield’s claims on finding the measles virus in body tis-sues has not confirmed the findings (D’Souza, Fombonne, &Ward, 2006).

    1. The Barany or Dix-Hallpike maneuver involves moving the patient rapidly from the sitting to the lying position with the head tilted downward off the table at 45 degrees and rotated 45 degrees to one side. This is a key diagnostic test for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and has an 80 percent sensitivity for this specific condition. It should be stressed that the maneuver is NOT useful in diagnosing other vestibulopathies.

      Image Description

      With the patient sitting, the neck is extended and turned to one side. The patient is then placed supine rapidly, so that the head hangs over the edge of the bed. The patient is kept in this position and observed for nystagmus for 30 seconds. In patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, nystagmus usually appears with a latency of a few seconds and lasts less than 30 seconds. It has a typical trajectory, beating upward and torsionally, with the upper poles of the eyes beating toward the ground. After it stops and the patient sits up, the nystagmus will recur but in the opposite direction. Therefore, the patient is returned to upright and again observed for nystagmus for 30 seconds. If nystagmus is not provoked, the maneuver is repeated with the head turned to the other side. If nystagmus is provoked, the patient should have the maneuver repeated to the same (provoked) side; with each repetition, the intensity and duration of nystagmus will diminish.
