The present study aimed at exploring a potential association between antipsychotic-induced weight gain and delayed negative alliesthesia for sweet stimuli. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES The study aimed at recruiting patients undergoing AP treatment, half of them with stable weight and the(More)

Yet, before 2 years of age, children are unable to form or store episodic memories for recall later in life, a phenomenon known as infantile amnesia.

A mild head injury could have played a role in the development of post-myringotomy cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea and otorrhea in an 18-month-old child with Mondini's syndrome.

Those phenomena were examined in relation to previous weight gain, eating and weight-related cognitions and type of sweet stimuli: aspartame or sucrose. Alliesthesia is delayed in participants who gained weight(More)
