The vestibular, cerebellar, and reticular systems are central in importance, in motion sickness and habituation, to the effects of motion. Nuclear medicine single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies of cerebral blood flow and power spectral electroencephalographic recordings during motion sickness were used to determine alterations in the… (More)
This project has employed a computerized pursuit meter which has a high correlation with operational performance (2) to test the principal antimotion sickness drugs. Proficiency scores on the pursuit meter task were improved over placebo scores in subjects with d-amphetamine 10 mg and 5 mg, the combination of promethazine 25 mg plus scopolamine 0.4 mg with… (More)
The possible influence on operational proficiency of the side effects of the anti-motion sickness drugs was investigated using a computerized pursuit meter as the test device. The medications and doses tested were scopolamine (Hyoscine) 0.25 mg and 0.50 mg oral doses, promethazine (Phenergan) 25 mg oral and 25 mg I.M. doses. Combinations of promethazine 25… (More)
Twenty-nine elderly patients who failed treatment with clozapine, risperidone, or olanzapine entered this 24-week, single-center, open-label trial to assess the efficacy of quetiapine (12.5-400 mg/day) for psychosis in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Psychiatric, motor, and cognitive assessments were administered at baseline and at periodic… (More)
A retrospective study of acute perforations of the colon is presented. Sites, causes, morbidity, mortality, and treatment are discussed. Comparison with several large series is made.
UNLABELLED Eight subjects, male and female, were rotated using the step method to progressively increase the speed of rotation (+2 rpm) after every 40 head movements to a maximum of 35 rpm. The end-point for motion sickness was the Graybiel Malaise III total of symptoms short of frank nausea. The drug treatments were placebo, scopolamine 0.6 mg and 1 mg,… (More)
The effect of antimotion sickness drugs on habituation was studied. Subjects were rotated once a day for 5 d to the malaise III end-point after receiving placebo, 1 mg scopolamine, 10 mg d-amphetamine, or the combination of 0.6 mg scopolamine with 5 mg of d-amphetamine. The placebo scores had a Spearman coefficient of correlation of 0.88 with the initial… (More)
