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 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)
OBJECTIVE Impaired cognitive function has been demonstrated in adults with growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) by using different neuropsychological tests. Despite several studies, present knowledge about the impact of GHD and GH replacement therapy (GHRT) on cognitive function is limited. P300 event-related potential (ERP) application is a(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)
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the alteration in hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis function results in electrodermal abnormality without causing marked psychiatric manifestations or not. Electrodermal activity was recorded with the skin conductance unit and IBM-AT computer. Basal levels of electrodermal activity (EDA), as well as(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)
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)
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)
