Neurocognitive impairment is a core feature in the pathology of schizophrenia and considered to be relatively persistent towards psychopharmacological interventions. There are hints that atypical antipsychotics can influence neurocognitive dysfunctions more favorable than conventional compounds. But little is known about differences in efficacy on(More)
The HOMER 1 protein plays a crucial role in mediating glutamatergic neurotransmission. It has previously shown to be a candidate gene for etiology and pathophysiology of different psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. To identify genes involved in response to antipsychotics, subgroups of animals were treated with haloperidol (1 mg/kg, n = 11) or(More)
Deficits in executive functions, e.g. voluntary selection, are considered central to the attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The aim of this simultaneous EEG/fMRI study was to examine associated neural correlates in ADHD patients. Patients with ADHD and healthy subjects performed an adapted go/nogo task including a voluntary selection condition(More)
The synaptosomal-associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25) is part of the soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein (NSF) attachment receptor (SNARE), which mediates synaptic neurotransmission. In earlier studies a possible involvement of this protein in schizophrenia has been shown. As neurocognitive impairment is a core feature in the pathology of(More)
Executive dysfunctions (regarding behavioural inhibition, decision making, flexibility or voluntary selection) rank among the core symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Several studies demonstrated functional variations in patients with ADHD especially during response inhibition and flexibility. However, information about functional(More)
Schizophrenia patients have deficits in cognitive control as well as in a number of emotional domains. The antisaccade task is a measure of cognitive control that requires the inhibition of a reflex-like eye movement to a peripheral stimulus. Antisaccade performance has been shown to be modulated by the emotional content of the peripheral stimuli, with(More)
Pleckstrin homology domain (PH domain) comprises approximately 120 amino acids and is integrated in a wide range of proteins involved in intracellular signaling or as constituents of the cytoskeleton. This domain can bind phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-triphosphate and phosphatidylinositol (4,5)-biphosphate and proteins such as the βγ-subunits of(More)
