Relative regional brain blood flow was measured in 23 clinically depressed adults by using ECD SPECT at baseline and again during actual prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) following 5 daily sessions of TMS. TMS over prefrontal cortex caused increased activity in cortex directly under the stimulation (inversely correlated with distance from(More)
BACKGROUND Generalized social anxiety disorder is a highly prevalent anxiety disorder with deleterious effects on social and family relationships, as well as work performance. We report the results of a multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trial comparing the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of fluvoxamine controlled release (CR) to placebo in(More)
Twenty-two depressed adults were scanned with perfusion single-photon computed emission tomography before and after 2 weeks of left perfrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in a parallel design, double-blind treatment study. At medication-free baseline, across all subjects, blood flow in the bilateral medial temporal lobes, left prefrontal cortex,(More)
BACKGROUND Functional neuroimaging studies after alcohol cessation have demonstrated that chronic alcohol use globally reduces neuronal activity for several weeks. Less is known about the effects of previous alcohol use patterns on regional brain activity. Multiple previous alcohol detoxifications are associated with a worse clinical course and increased(More)
