Although previous studies demonstrated decreased functional connectivity in the default mode network in the cognitively normal older adults with amyloid burden, effects of amyloid burden in the other large-scale intrinsic connectivity networks are not yet clear. The aim of this study was to investigate the distinctive association pattern of amyloid-β(More)
Previous studies have shown an association between late-onset depression (LOD) and cognitive impairment in older adults. However, the neural correlates of this relationship are not yet clear. The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in both cortical thickness and subcortical volumes between drug-naive LOD patients and healthy controls and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although a few automated hippocampal subfield segmentation methods have been developed, there is no study on the effects of the diagnosis of Alzheimer disease on the hippocampal subfield volume with in vivo MR imaging. The aim of this study was to investigate hippocampal subfield volume differences between drug-naïve subjects with AD(More)
BACKGROUND Although previous studies on late life depression (LLD) have shown morphological abnormalities in frontal-striatal-temporal areas, alterations in coordinated patterns of structural brain networks in LLD are still poorly understood. The aim of this study was to investigate differences in gray matter structural brain network between LLD and healthy(More)
OBJECTIVES Psychotic agitation of psychiatric patients is a common manifestation that needs emergent management. Traditionally, parenteral or intramuscular injection of antipsychotics was conducted for treatment of psychotic agitation. Considering that the rapidly absorbed form of risperidone (risperidone orodispersible tablet) could be used for the(More)
Cortico-limbic network dysfunction and genetic polymorphism are considered to be associated with major depressive disorder (MDD). Using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), we investigated the relationship between catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene polymorphisms and white matter tract integrity in patients with MDD. Eighty-six patients with MDD and 62(More)
OBJECTIVES Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are a promising candidate gene in schizophrenia as they are believed to play a protective role in the central nervous system. An alteration in the titers of antibodies to the HSPs in schizophrenia patients has been suggested. Association between the three polymorphisms of HSP70-1 (HSPA1A), HSP70-hom (HSPA1L) and HSP70-2(More)
Previous studies provided hippocampal shape analysis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients using automated segmentation techniques. However, the relationships between the hippocampal deformations and various cognitive impairments were not clear. The aim of this study was to investigate hippocampal shape changes and their relationship to cognitive(More)
In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in late-onset mental disorders. Among them, geriatric schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are significant health care risks and major causes of disability. We discussed whether late-onset schizophrenia (LOS) and late-onset bipolar (LOB) disorder can be a separate entity from early-onset schizophrenia(More)
As brainstem nuclei are interconnected with several cortical structures and regulate several autonomic, cognitive, and behavioral functions, it might be important to place the brainstem within an important pathologic core in the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although there have been several postmortem studies reporting neuropathological(More)
