A non-blinded pilot study of the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of acupuncture (ACUPX) for the symptoms of (PD) was performed. Twenty PD patients (mean age, 68 years;(More)
PK 11195 is a selective ligand for the peripheral-type benzodiazepine binding site (PTBBS). There are few such sites in normal brain but their number increases in association with tissue necrosis. The time-course of appearance of PTBBS around a focally induced ischaemic lesion in frontal cortex of rat brain was established by autoradiography using(More)
We describe a novel instrument which is capable of measuring the uptake of radioligand in human organs in vivo with the administration of very small doses of positron-emitting radioligands. This technique readily detects the displacement or reduced uptake of radioligand when a competitive agonist or antagonist is administered. This system provides no(More)
We designed and validated a system for determining the state of sleep or wakefulness in both term and preterm infants. The system is based on independent assessments of behavioral and electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns. Overall agreement between observers in coding individual behavioral patterns was 77.6%.
