We recently reported that chronic lithium (LiCl), at therapeutic plasma levels, enhanced spatial working memory and retention of an aversive contingency. Here we examine the possibility that these effects be secondary to LiCl effects on the ability to ignore irrelevant stimuli or on fear conditioning. In Experiment 1, rats subjected to >30 daily(More)
The inhibition of unipolar demand pacemakers by myopotentials was studied in 215 paced patients with or without symptoms and in steady pacing rhythm. ECG recordings were taken of all patients at rest and during effort in which maximal muscular strength from the pectoralis major (PM) and rectus abdominis (RA) muscles was required. In 75 patients (34.9%)(More)
TO THE EDITOR: The presence of neuropsychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is associated with faster cognitive and functional decline, and rivastigmine provides significant benefits in patients with AD. We describe the case of a 72year-old female patient with AD who had been treated with high-dose rivastigmine, 36 mg/day, by mistake, over the(More)
We examined four patients with a demand pacemaker who exhibited transient symptoms of vertigo while trying to rise from the supine position. In two of these there was an epicardial pacing system with the pacemaker in the abdominal wall superficial to the rectus abdominis muscle; in the other two cases the pacing system was transvenous with the pacemaker(More)
The standard exercise tests are usually inadequate for revealing the nature of oversensing problems associated with skeletal muscle myopotentials. We used special exercises, designed to test the rectus abdominis (RA) and pectoralis major (PM) muscle groups specifically, in a study of a large number of paced patients. We examined a total of 252 paced(More)
