We estimated the correlation dimensions of EEGs in patients with schizophrenia to investigate the dynamical properties underlying the EEG. We employed a new method, proposed by Kennel et al. (Kennel MB, Brown R, Abarbanel HDI. Determining embedding dimension for phase-space reconstruction using a geometrical construction. Phys Rev A 1992;45:3403-11), to(More)
BACKGROUND Pain is the most common but severe physical symptom among cancer patients. This study aimed to identify correlation between pain and psychological symptoms for terminal cancer patients. METHODS The total sample consisted of 69 subjects who were recruited through two hospice wards, limited to patients who were mentally alert and had no(More)
The age-specific prevalence of dementia, its sex difference, and the relative prevalence of important types of dementia were studied in the elderly people in a Korean rural community. A two-stage approach was employed, involving screening and clinical assessment. The prevalence among individuals aged 65 and over was found to be 10.8%, with rates of 7.2% in(More)
The reliability and validity of the Cognitive Impairment Diagnosing Instrument (CIDI) were studied in 67 nursing home elderly subjects and 251 elderly psychiatric patients. Its possible highest score is 77 and covers 10 subscales: short-term memory, long-term memory, concentration/calculation, abstract thinking, judgement, memory registration, higher(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are toxic materials that cannot be broken down naturally and that easily accumulate in the body. Although several studies have attempted to reveal the effects of POPs on the endocrine and nervous system and on cancer, few studies focus on the relationship between low-dose POPs and public health. We attempted(More)

OBJECTIVE Neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD) is one of the most serious complications of Behcet's disease (BD). Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) has been proved to be useful in detecting neuro-metabolic abnormalities in various diseases affecting the brain. In this study, we attempted to characterize the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in(More)
