The study suggests that recurrent brief hypomania belongs to the bipolar spectrum and should be verified on larger national cohorts in other epidemiological and clinical studies. Expand
The HCL-32: towards a self-assessment tool for hypomanic symptoms in outpatients.
The performance of the scale in distinguishing individuals with BP from those with major depressive disorder and the HCL-32 distinguished between BP and MDD with a sensitivity of 80% and a specificity of 51%. Expand
Re-evaluating the prevalence of and diagnostic composition within the broad clinical spectrum of bipolar disorders.
The present review did not consider cyclic, seasonal, irritable-dysphoric or otherwise impulse-ridden, intermittently explosive or agitated psychiatric conditions for which the bipolar connection is less established. Expand
Mortality of patients with mood disorders: follow-up over 34-38 years.
Men and women hospitalised for affective disorders have elevated mortality rates from suicide and circulatory disorders and long term medication treatment lowers the suicide rates, despite the fact that it was the more severely ill who were treated. Expand
Toward a re-definition of subthreshold bipolarity: epidemiology and proposed criteria for bipolar-II, minor bipolar disorders and hypomania.
The diagnostic criteria of hypomania need revision and a broader concept of soft bipolarity is proposed, of which nearly 11% constitutes the spectrum of bipolar disorders proper, and another 13% probably represent the softest expression of bipolarity intermediate between bipolar disorder and normality.

Cost of depression in Europe.
The empirical results from this study confirm, that depression is a major concern to the economic welfare in Europe which has consequences to both healthcare providers and policy makers. Expand
Positron Emission Tomography and Fluorodeoxyglucose Studies of Metabolic Hyperfrontality and Psychopathology in the Psilocybin Model of Psychosis
The present data suggest that excessive 5-HT2 receptor activation results in a hyperfrontal metabolic pattern that parallels comparable metabolic findings associated with acute psychotic episodes in schizophrenics and contrasts with the hypofrontality in chronic schizophrenic patients. Expand
Gender differences in depression. Epidemiological findings from the European DEPRES I and II studies.
Even after stratification by clinically significant impairment and paid employment status, men reported fewer symptoms than women; as a consequence, men reached the diagnostic threshold less often and there were clear gender differences in causal attribution and in coping. Expand
