The topography and possible physiological significance of EEG average amplitude and amplitude variability in time were examined in 10 chronic psychotic patients and several groups of healthy volunteers. In confirmation of previous reports, the patients showed more slow (5.2-7.6 Hz) activity, particularly in frontal areas, and less alpha rhythm variability(More)
In neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM), a rare genetic disorder, insulin therapy is required but the management is difficult. Frequent blood glucose determinations are necessary in most cases. Microdialysis subcutaneous glucose monitoring (MSGM) is feasible in neonates and has been proposed to reduce painful blood sampling and blood loss. We have applied(More)
Nineteen patients with senile brain disease (including 2 with parkinsonian symptoms) were treated with amantadine in an oral dosage of 200--300 mg daily. Seven showed definite clinical benefits such as increased alertness and decreased agitation, and 2 others showed slight benefits. However, in only one instance was the benefit maintained without(More)
It has recently become possible to arrive at a testable biopsychological model, according to which a dysfunction of the prefrontal cortex is the common factor in psychotic disorders; if persistent, this leads to a dissolution of the highest level of brain function, in the sense of Hughlings Jackson. The model is in agreement with newer findings in normal(More)
Demographic, psychiatric, and electro-encephalographic (EEG) data were compared with brain autopsy findings for 73 elderly psychiatric patients. A late onset of depression (60+ years) was more likely than early onset to be accompanied by Alzheimer's disease. There were strong associations between clinical and histopathological indicators of Alzheimer's(More)
INTRODUCTION Type 1 diabetes can be diagnosed at an early presymptomatic stage by the detection of islet autoantibodies. The Fr1da study aims to assess whether early staging of type 1 diabetes (1) is feasible at a population-based level, (2) prevents severe metabolic decompensation observed at the clinical manifestation of type 1 diabetes and (3) reduces(More)
