A study is described in which the normal toes of 50 patients with unilateral ingrowing toenails were compared with those of 50 healthy subjects matched for age and sex. Twenty-one potential risk factors were compared between the groups. All measurements on patients were derived from unaffected toes in order to avoid anatomical distortion due to the disease(More)
Recent reports of reduced seizure duration with ECT under propofol anaesthesia have led to concerns that propofol may diminish the efficacy of this treatment. To investigate the effect of propofol on the response to ECT, we reviewed records of 66 patients with primary depression treated with ECT, 37 of whom had been assessed prospectively with pre- and(More)
This study examines an alternative to a narrow locus-of-dysfunction cortical pathophysiology in schizophrenia, which in turn suggests a modified approach to the analysis of data from regional cerebral blood flow studies. The results provide qualified support for a model of impaired differentiation of cortical activity in schizophrenia. As an index of the(More)
Regional cerebral blood flow, a physiological measure of brain function, has been used for the assessment of cognitive dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease. A number of studies have found diminished temporo-parietal regional cerebral blood flow (RCBF) in Alzheimer's disease patients at rest and have differentiated these patients from normal subjects with a(More)
Regional cerebral blood flow was studied at rest and during a memory recognition activation task in a preliminary investigation carried out in patients with mild to moderate dementia of Alzheimer type and in 2 control groups of subjects. There were differences in the sites of activation-increased blood flows between the normal controls and the controls with(More)
