Patients suffering from some psychiatric and neurological disorders demonstrate abnormally high levels of saccadic distractibility when carrying out the antisaccade task. This has been particularly thoroughly demonstrated in patients with schizophrenia. A large body of evidence has been accumulated from studies of patients which suggests that such eye(More)
The effects of single doses of chlorpromazine (100mg) and lorazepam (0.5, 1 and 2mg) were compared with placebo in a battery of tests of information processing, working and semantic memory. Peak saccadic velocity was used to provide a precise and reliable measure of sedation and its results were found to be consistent with those using visual analogue rating(More)
Latent inhibition (LI) is a measure of reduced learning about a stimulus to which there has been prior exposure without any consequence. It therefore requires a comparison between a pre-exposed (PE) and a non-pre-exposed (NPE) condition. Since, in animals, LI is disrupted by amphetamines and enhanced by antipsychotics, LI disruption has been proposed as a(More)
Mean systemic pressure-flow (Ps-Q) and volume-flow (V-Q) relationships of the systemic vascular bed were determined in two groups of dogs anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital (group I) and with methoxyflurane (group II). All blood returning to the heart (Q) was removed from the right atrial appendage and passed through a Starling resistor, a pump, a(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormally high levels of saccadic distractibility have been demonstrated to occur in patients with schizophrenia. Converging evidence implicates frontal cortical dysfunction as a mechanism; however, much of the neuropharmacology of saccadic distractibility has not yet been established. METHODS We measured antisaccade, no-saccade, and visually(More)
BACKGROUND Dysphoric reactions to antipsychotic medication are well recognised in association with akathisia, but can also occur independently. METHOD Fifty-one healthy volunteers were given haloperidol 5 mg in two consecutive pharmacokinetic studies. RESULTS Dysphoria occurred in about 40% of the subjects on both occasions, but akathisia was only(More)
Chronic synovitis of the elbow in rheumatoid arthritics that has not responded to four to six months of optimal nonoperative management should be treated by synovectomy even in the absence of significant intra-articular X-ray changes. When intra-articular damage is significant, an arthroplasty will not only relieve the pain, but may also provide a(More)
The majority of condylar fractures can be treated with closed reduction and intermaxillary fixation. In this study, we examine the use of open reduction with plate and screw fixation for the treatment of condylar fractures. Fourteen patients with 18 subcondylar fractures underwent open reduction and fixation using miniplates (12 patients) and lag screws(More)
The effects of single doses of haloperidol (2, 4 and 6 mg) were compared with lorazepam 2.5 mg and placebo in 15 healthy subjects. Visual search strategy was measured, along with a range of psychomotor and eye movement tests. Patients with Parkinson’s disease have been shown to exhibit a shift from parallel to serial processing in visual search, but we(More)
PURPOSE Waist to hip ratio (WHR) is a valid assessment tool to determine risk for the development or presence of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease in adults. Evidence-based research on its validity with children and adolescents is limited. A retrospective analysis was conducted to determine if WHR in overweight and obese pediatric(More)
