This study attempted to determine the prevalence of dissociative identity disorder in the general population. The Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) was administered to 994 subjects in 500 homes who constituted a representative sample of the population of Sivas City, Turkey. The mean DES score was 6.7+/-6.1 (mean +/- SD). Of the 62 respondents who scored(More)
Sympathetic skin response (SSR) and RR interval variation (RRIV) are used commonly for the assessment of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system function, respectively. We determined the normal values of SSR and RRIV in 23 (14 females, nine males) Turkish children aged 5 to 14 (mean 9.86, SD 2.48) years. SSR was recorded on the hands and feet during(More)
Electrophysiologic studies have an important role in the diagnosis of lumbosacral radiculopathies. Electrophysiologic methods which are used conventionally are needle electromyography (EMG), late responses (F wave and H reflex), and nerve conduction studies. Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) are also important complementary diagnostic methods in the(More)
Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) reflect the activity of somatosensory pathways mediated through the dorsal columns of the spinal cord and the specific somatosensory cortex. In this study we aimed to demonstrate the effects of physiologic parameters such as height, age and gender on N9, N13, N20 SEP components and the central conduction time (CCT) to(More)
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is an electrotherapeutic modality used for analgesia. We planned to demonstrate selective stimulation of large diameter fibers with conventional type TENS by way of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP). We have analyzed index finger-wrist segment median nerve sensory potential and SEP recordings obtained(More)
