Within a late follow-up of our former anorectic patients 38 consented to an endocrine checkup in addition to clinical and sociopsychologic assessments. Univariate comparisons of still or again amenorrheic patients (n = 22) versus remenorrheic patients (n = 16) showed many significances. However, some of these variables intercorrelated substantially.(More)
Starting with a review of selected examples of empirical studies on the concept of alexithymia, this paper then presents a new perspective that helps to integrate these diverse results. Studies are grouped into two types: those employing instruments (questionnaires, ratings) that directly assess alexithymia, and experimental studies. Studies of the first(More)
34 consecutively admitted anorexia nervosa inpatients were studied for variables relevant for 'early' vs. 'late' amenorrhea and for probable remenorrhea after therapy. The subsample reporting 'early' amenorrhea, i.e. preceding weight loss (n = 11), was characterized by less 'anorexia-specific' psychological traits and more weight loss before admission and a(More)
INTRODUCTION Letting users speak commands to the systems they are interacting with has been tried in various domains. Examples include a range of computer applications, as well as more narrowly defined domains such as aircraft systems. Using speech to control computers has never caught on in a big way, however, and in aircraft it has been limited to a few(More)
density distribution has recently been directly demonstrated in electron micrographs of formaldehyde-fixed SIS-type aggregates by Kuhn, K., U. Hofmann, and W. Grassmann (Naturwiss., 46, 512 1959). I For this purpose the segments were stained by exposure to 0.002 M uranyl nitrate for 1 minute and washed with distilled water before drying on the grid. Under(More)
