Green tea is reported to have wide ranging beneficial health outcomes across epidemiological studies, which have been attributed to its flavonoid content. We investigated whether the flavonoid epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) modulates brain activity and self-reported mood in a double-blind, placebo controlled crossover study. Participants completed baseline(More)
A technique is described which verifies neural activity to a very faint continuous sine wave through subtraction of two different far-field whole nerve action potentials from one another. A brief transient is presented to an animal in order to elicit a supra-threshold action potential. The technique is then repeated, but on the second trial a near-threshold(More)
A derived response method of acquiring frequency specific auditory evoked potentials that utilizes a pure tone in combination with a toneburst is applied to the measurement of hearing sensitivity in guinea pigs, chinchillas and pocket gophers. Two experiments which demonstrate that thresholds acquired via tone-derived responses are 10 to 15 dB more(More)
AIMS To examine whether baseline neurocognition and social cognition predict vocational outcomes over 6 months in patients with first-episode psychosis (FEP) enrolled in a randomised controlled trial of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) versus treatment as usual (TAU). METHODS 135 FEP participants (IPS n=69; TAU n=66) completed a comprehensive(More)
