Electrical sources of auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) determined by means of low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (LORETA) in 48 unmedicated insomniac postmenopausal patients aged between 46 and 67 years were compared with those obtained in 48 age-matched normal female controls. Subsequently, the patients were included in a double-blind,(More)
Oxytocin is clearly involved in human reproduction and serves an important role in sexual arousal. Oxytocin serum levels were measured before and after sexual stimulation in 12 healthy women. Values of oxytocin 1 min after orgasm were significantly higher (p < 0.05) than baseline levels. This finding supports the hypothesis that oxytocin plays a major part(More)
The influence of a combined estrogen-progestin regimen (Climodien, Lafamme) on auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, comparative, randomized 3-arm trial phase (Climodien 2/3=estradiol valerate 2 mg+the progestin dienogest 3 mg, EV=estradiol valerate 2 mg, and placebo), followed by an open-label(More)
RATIONALE Daytime fatigue, which at the neurophysiological level is due to vigilance decrements, is a frequent complaint in postmenopausal women. OBJECTIVES In a three-arm, 2-month, parallel group-design study, vigilance-promoting effects of a novel continuous combination (=Climodien 2/3) of estradiol valerate (EV; 2 mg) and dienogest (DNG; 3 mg) were(More)
