This paper deals with the functional correlates of the gamma response of the brain. A critical review of the literature findings reveals the existence of two types of gamma responses: an early gamma that fulfills sensory functions and a late gamma that fulfills perceptual-cognitive functions. However, even the early gamma shows individual differences. Such(More)
Reduced auditory P300 amplitude generally has been considered to be a trait marker of schizophrenia, independent of antipsychotic treatment and clinical symptoms. However, several seemingly well-conducted studies have found P300 amplitude to be a state marker correlated with clinical symptoms. Recent research on atypical antipsychotics indicate that these(More)
In order to investigate the effects of contraceptive steroid combinations on lipid peroxidation in the erythrocyte membranes, adult female rats were divided into 2 groups for short- and long-term investigations; each group was then subdivided into 5 subgroups according to orally given low and high doses of EE/NEA (ethinyl estradiol/norethisterone acetate)(More)
Several previous studies have reported that cigarette smoking enhances performance of cognitive processing. These enhancements are generally attributed to the pharmacological effects of nicotine, while there is some debate whether the effects of smoking/nicotine are a result of recovery from abstinence. Evoked potentials (EPs) and event related potentials(More)
Female/male cognitive differences have been studied for some time; however, such differences in Turkish population is unknown. Evoked potentials (EPs) of the brain have been applied as an index of information processing in a wide variety of normal and cognitive impaired subjects. Scalp event-related potentials (ERP) evoked by auditory stimuli were recorded(More)
This study investigated the relationship between hyperglycemia and electrodermal activity (EDA) parameters in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats. The article evaluates the course of development of neurophysiological alterations in the peripheral nervous system in diabetic rats through EDA. Rats were made diabetic using a moderate dose of STZ (DI)(More)
It is a well known fact that theophylline enhances the force of diaphragmatic contraction and delays fatigue. The action of caffeine which is a methylxanthine analogue on skeletal muscle are complex. It was claimed in few studies that the caffeine was more effective on the diaphragmatic contractility than the theophylline. The aim of this study is to(More)
