Impulsivity is a heterogeneous construct according to clinical and preclinical behavioural measures and there is some preliminary evidence indicating distinct neurobiological substrates underlying the sub-components of impulsivity. Two preclinical assays, the five-choice serial reaction time task (5-CSRTT) and the delayed discounting task (DDT), are(More)
Varenicline (Chantix®, Champix®) is a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) partial agonist clinically approved for smoking cessation, yet its potential abuse liability properties have not been fully characterized. The nAChR ligand sazetidine-A has been reported as a selective full or partial agonist at α4β2* nAChR subtypes in in vitro studies. In the(More)
A case of lipogranuloma of the external genitalia is presented. The history and histological features suggest that the exogenous lipid was introduced by the topical application of a baby oil used after minor trauma to the penis. Initial treatment by steroids and immunosuppressive agents was followed by complete excision of the granuloma.
Recent evidence suggests that early changes in postural control may be discernible among females with premutation expansions (55-200 CGG repeats) of the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene at risk of developing fragile X-associated tremor ataxia syndrome (FXTAS). Cerebellar dysfunction is well described in males and females with FXTAS, yet the(More)
