Abnormal neurodevelopment in midline structures such as the adhesio interthalamica (AI) has been reported in psychotic disorders, but it is unknown whether individuals at risk for the disorder share the AI findings observed in patients with florid psychosis. Magnetic resonance imaging of 162 patients with first-episode psychosis (FEP), 89 patients with(More)
Major depressive disorder (MDD) has been associated with increased pituitary gland volume (PGV), which is thought to reflect stress-related dysregulation related to hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. However, it is unclear whether PGV alteration reflects a "dynamic" change related to current mood instability or if it is a stable marker of(More)
BACKGROUND The timing of energy intake is a modifiable behaviour that may influence energy regulation and the risk of obesity. We examined the associations of energy intake in the morning, midday and evening with body mass index (BMI) (n = 239). METHODS Cross-sectional analyses were performed using data from the University of California, Los Angeles(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, diabetes and kidney disease. The objective was to describe dietary intake, the dominant source of exposure to AGEs, with carboxymethyl-lysine (CML), a major AGE, in serum and urine, respectively. SUBJECTS/METHODS Serum and urinary CML were(More)
Digital TV Broadcast standards (e.g., ATSC, DVB) offer a good solution to last mile Internet delivery. Satellites, terrestrial broadcast, and cable systems are well suited to the delivery of high bandwidth data to the end user. Low transport overhead and ready availability of MPEG-2 TS equipment make it very appealing as a bearer for connecting IP networks.(More)
OBJECTIVE Ventricular enlargement is common in established schizophrenia; however, data from ultra high-risk for psychosis and first-episode psychosis studies are inconclusive. This study aims to investigate ventricular volumes at different stages of psychosis. METHODS Ventricular volumes were measured using a semi-automated and highly reliable method,(More)
OBJECTIVE Exposure to early life childhood trauma has been implicated as resulting in a vulnerability to epileptic and psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES), hippocampal atrophy, and psychiatric disorders. This study aimed to explore the relationships between childhood trauma, epilepsy, PNES, and hippocampal volume in patients admitted to a(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the association between walnut consumption and measures of cognitive function in the US population. DESIGN Nationally representative cross sectional study using 24 hour dietary recalls of intakes to assess walnut and other nut consumption as compared to the group reporting no nut consumption. SETTING 1988-1994 and 1999-2002 rounds(More)
