Voxel-based morphometry has recently been used successfully to detect gray matter volume reductions in schizophrenic patients. The aim of the present study was to confirm the findings on gray-matter changes and to complement these by applying the methodology to CSF-differences. Also, we wanted to determine whether a correlation exists between a clinically(More)
Functional and structural abnormalities in the thalamus as well as a generalized phospholipid membrane disorder have been implicated in the pathogenesis of schizophrenic psychosis. To determine whether thalamic neuronal abnormalities and altered membrane-associated metabolites can be detected in schizophrenic patients, we used in vivo proton magnetic(More)
Several lines of evidence suggest a dysregulation of the adrenocortical (HPA) system with hypersecretion of CRH is associated with suicidal behavior. However, controversial results have emerged from the determination of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) concentrations in the lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of suicide attempters probably due to(More)
Introduction: This study aimed to determine which type of stretching technique used during a warm-up was appropriate before power exercise in female athletes. The effects of static stretching and dynamic stretching were compared using explosive force production during a vertical jump exercise. Methods: Participants (N = 40) were all DIII female athletes(More)
A 30-year old woman was referred to our center because of suspicion of a primary lung tumor of the right upper lobe. Histological examination of the lung lesion revealed lung metastasis of a previously treated alveolar soft part sarcoma of the musculus vastus medialis of the right femur, which was resected 20 years ago. Alveolar soft-part sarcoma is a rare(More)
