We analyzed prospective data from 109 lamotrigine-treated outpatients with bipolar II depression inadequately responsive to mood stabilizers. Lamotrigine was added to prior treatment in a naturalistic fashion. Changes in depression severity(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to compare gray matter (GM) volume and white matter (WM) integrity in Apolipoprotein E4 (ApoE ε4) carriers with that of ApoE ε4 noncarriers using the voxel-based morphometry and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to investigate the effect of the ApoE ε4 on brain structures in subjective memory impairment (SMI) without white(More)
