Decreased activity of the prefrontal cortex (PFC), as well as reduced serotonergic neurotransmission, is considered as a characteristic feature of major depression. The mechanism by which electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) achieve their antidepressant effects may involve changes in PFC activity. It is, however, still(More)
Age has been reported to influence amplitude and latency of the P300 potential. Nevertheless, it is not yet fully understood which brain regions are responsible for these effects. The aim of this study was to investigate age-effects on the P300 potential and the simultaneously acquired BOLD signal of functional MRI. 32 healthy male subjects were(More)
The loudness dependence of the auditory evoked potential (LDAEP) is considered a noninvasive in vivo marker of central serotonergic functioning in humans. Nevertheless, results of genetic association studies point towards a modulation of this biomarker by dopaminergic neurotransmission. We examined the effect of dopaminergic modulation on the LDAEP using(More)
BACKGROUND Dopaminergic availability is known to linearly decline in Parkinson's disease (PD). In contrast, temporal characteristics of serotonergic markers like the serotonin transporter (SERT) in relation to clinical staging of PD and dopaminergic cell loss are less clear. This study investigated SERT availability using [(123) I]-ADAM and single-photon(More)
