There are certain terms that will not be helpful when searching. Terms like effect, decreased, following will not be helpful when running the initial search, they will either make it too specific or include terms that aren’t used for indexing. I would even leave out the term adult unless you have so many results you don’t know what to do with, in that case adding Adult in would help narrow the results. You have to pull out the key terms and then analyze the search results to determine the relevancy. If you go to pubmed.gov ( ) and type in the key terms it should be a good starting point.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
