Over a 5-year period, employees of both sexes who felt that their on-the-Job efforts had failed to generate appropriate career advancement or promotions exhibited the poorest overall functioning, contend epidemiologist Stephen A.
Mintz, Mintz, Hwang, and Uijtdehaage (1997) reviewed the relationship between antipsychotic medications and vocational functioning in five randomized double-blind clinical drug trials, concluding that traditional antipsychotics do not negatively impact vocational functioning.

AVINZA had a positive effect on physical functioning in osteoarthritis patients who completed up to 30 weeks of treatment, and was statistically superior to MS Contin on some occasions," said Dr.
Physical functioning was measured using two methods, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) and the SF-36 Physical Functioning Summary Score.
In the area of sensory functioning the Bender provided a correlation coefficient with acculturation approaching zero.
No significant relationships were found between motor functioning and level of acculturation in any of these areas.
Freeman & Zabriskie 2003; Hill, Freeman, & Huff 2001; Smith, Taylor, Hill, & Zabriskie 2004; Zabriskie & McCormick 2001) have reported a significant relationship between family leisure involvement and family cohesion, adaptability, and overall family functioning from a system's perspective.

Many individuals who fulfil all the tests for whole brain death do not have permanent cessation of functioning
of the entire brain.
A study specifically on cognitive performance states that no clinically significant deficits or abnormalities were found in cognitive functioning for patients with CFS (Wearden & Appleby, 1997).
One study claims that patients with CFS appear to be the most disadvantaged in relation to areas of social and role functioning (Schweitzer et al.
