Gene variants of the serotonin transporter have been associated with vulnerability to affective disorders. In particular, the presence of one or two copies of the short (s) allele of the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism has been associated with reduced serotonin transporter expression and function, and vulnerability to affective disorders. To test for an association(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore if cognitive impairment in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) is associated with abnormal neural function and if there is evidence of neural compensatory mechanisms. METHODS Seventy-two RRMS patients and 89 healthy control subjects were included in a cross-sectional study. Event-related brain potential (P300) and response(More)
The Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) was used to examine (i) social decision-making in women with borderline personality disorder (BPD), and (ii) the relationship between impaired decision-making and the tryptophan hydroxylase-1 (TPH-1) gene, involved in serotonin synthesis. Forty-two women with BPD and a history of suicide attempts were genotyped, and the(More)
While the importance of physical abilities and motor coordination is non-contested in sport, more focus has recently been turned toward cognitive processes important for different sports. However, this line of studies has often investigated sport-specific cognitive traits, while few studies have focused on general cognitive traits. We explored if measures(More)
Type 1 diabetes may be associated with a mild decline in cognitive function and mostly in mental speed. In order to study the pathophysiology of this, we have investigated auditory event-related potentials (AERP) and their relation to cognitive function in diabetes patients. AERP was recorded in patients with type 1 diabetes (n=119) and in a healthy control(More)
OBJECTIVES The primary aim of this study was to compare the retrieval of autobiographical memory and the social problem-solving performance of individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and a history of suicide attempts, with and without concurrent diagnoses of depression and/or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to that of controls.(More)
It is unclear how cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis (MS) is influenced by physical disability, fatigue, and depression. Our aim was to identify the strongest clinical predictors for cognitive impairment in relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) patients. The clinical risk factors included in the analysis were physical disability (EDSS), fatigue (FSS), the(More)
A decline in cognitive function has been reported in type 1 diabetes, but its relation to different disease factors such as hypoglycemic events and peripheral neuropathy is controversial. The objective of the present study was to identify factors that are important for cognitive impairment in type 1 diabetes. A cross-sectional study was performed in adult(More)
Cognitive dysfunction is common in multiple sclerosis (MS). Different factors may moderate the degree of cognitive deficit. The aim of the present study was to distinguish different mechanisms for cognitive reserve in relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS). The effects of clinical variables (physical disability, depression), premorbid intelligence (years of(More)
