[(18)F]-FEPPA binds to the 18-kDa translocator protein (TSPO) and is used in positron emission tomography (PET) to detect microglial activation. However, quantitative interpretations of the PET signal with new generation TSPO PET radioligands are confounded by large interindividual variability in binding affinity. This presents as a trimodal distribution,(More)
Currently available treatments have limited pro-cognitive effects for neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. The primary objective of this work is to review the literature on the role of dopamine D₃ receptors in cognition, and propose dopamine D₃ receptor antagonists as possible cognitive enhancers(More)
Ziprasidone is an atypical antipsychotic recommended to be administered twice daily. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether occupancy of the dopamine D2/3 receptors by ziprasidone is maintained across a day employing a within subject design. Positron emission tomography (PET) scans with [11C]-raclopride were performed in 12 patients with(More)
—Some proposed architectures for compressive sampling of time-domain signals involve splitting the signal into multiple branches. This approach is not unlike the idea of splitting a signal into in-phase and quadrature branches for a coherent receiver implementation, but in the case of a compressive receiver the idea is to modulate the signal in each branch(More)

He completed an honours degree, majoring in Government, at Har-vard University and then attended the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar where he obtained an M.A. in Physiological Sciences. He trained in medicine and psychiatry at McGill University and is a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. Dr. Goldbloom's activities have been(More)
—Stretch processing is often used by radar systems to capture LFM waveforms. Although stretch processing reduces sampling rate, it does so at the expense of increased data collection period. Therefore, the time-bandwidth product of the de-chirped waveform is approximately constant, and stretch processing cannot be considered a compressive technique. The(More)
