We carried out quantified electroencephalograms (qEEG) in 17 patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD), who also met the DSM-III-R criteria for either dysthymia or major depression, and 18 AD patients with comparable intellectual impairment but no depression, 13 patients with depression but no AD, and 10 age-matched normal controls. There was a(More)
Intensity of perceived inspiratory difficulty was investigated in 17 patients with severe respiratory insufficiency due to muscle disease, compared with healthy matched controls. Subjects breathed through a threshold valve generating a constant inspiratory negative pressure proportional to their maximal inspiratory pressure. Four load levels ranging from 10(More)
Interactions between the immune system and the brain are a key element in the pathophysiology of diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuroAIDS, and Alzheimer's, which affect large numbers of individuals and are associated with a high social cost. However, the neuroanatomical basis of brain-immune interactions has not been elucidated. We report that in(More)
The authors examined the presence of specific quantified electroencephalographic (qEEG) changes in dementia patients with relatively lower frontal or parietal blood perfusion as demonstrated by SPECT. Over all brain regions, patients with relatively lower parietal perfusion showed significantly higher theta relative power than demented patients with(More)
The authors examined relationships between quantified EEG (qEEG) variables and neuropsychological performance in 54 consecutive patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD). Patients were studied with qEEG and a neuropsychological battery that assessed memory, attention, verbal functions, set-shifting abilities, and procedural learning. More severe(More)
We examined the presence of quantified electroencephalographic (qEEG) differences between Parkinson's disease (PD) patients with and without dementia, and a group of age-comparable normal controls. While there were no significant differences in relative power in any of the qEEG bands between PD patients without dementia and normal controls, PD patients(More)
While depression is one of the most frequent psychiatric problems among patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD), its mechanism is not well known. We performed quantified EEGs in a consecutive series of seven patients with mild dementia and depression, six patients with mild dementia and no depression, eight patients with moderate dementia and(More)
