Combined Golgi/pigment studies revealed that pyramidal neurons and non-pyramidal cells of the Ammon's horn of the human adult can be distinguished from each other by their characteristic lipofuscin pigment deposits. In sector CA1, both the typical pyramidal neurons and the modified forms of pyramidal cells contain a modest amount of fine lipofuscin granules(More)
OBJECTIVE Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has been associated with disturbed sleep-wake cycles and cortical hypermetabolism. However, it still remains unclear whether OCD is associated with a dysregulation of vigilance (i.e. "brain arousal"). VIGALL (Vigilance Algorithm Leipzig) is an EEG-based tool to assess vigilance dynamics. Aim of this study is to(More)
OBJECTIVE Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies found alterations of functional connectivity in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). However, there is little knowledge about region of interest (ROI) based electroencephalogram (EEG) connectivity, i.e. lagged non-linear and linear coherence in OCD. Goal of this study was to compare these EEG(More)
The distribution of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) immunoreactive neurons, fibres and punctae in sector CA 1 of the adult human Ammon's horn was studied in Vibratome sections (40 micron thick) of tissue obtained at surgery and autopsy. On light microscopical examination, the material did not show pathological changes. The antibody was visualized by the(More)
