The authors used a Stroop negative priming paradigm to examine the effects of antipsychotic medication on selective attentional processes. The performance of 14 patients with schizophrenia who were withdrawn from neuroleptic medication was compared with that of 10 medicated patients and 16 matched controls. Results demonstrated an increase in negative(More)
UNLABELLED Using [O-15]-H(2)O PET Carter et al. (1997) reported that medicated patients with schizophrenia performing computerized single trial Stroop (1935) showed a reduction in the anterior cingulate activation response to the more attention demanding, incongruent Stroop condition. In that study, both patients and controls also showed a direct(More)
Sensory transmission in dorsal column nuclei is inhibited during voluntary movement in experimental animals. We have studied the human response by recording spine and scalp somatosensory evoked potentials. Finger movement attenuated the amplitude and duration of the cervical N13 and the scalp N18 and N20 waves. Foot movement did not alter the lumbar N22(More)
Previous studies have suggested that schizophrenia patients do not utilize contextual information efficiently to modulate attentional performance. The goal of the current study was to compare the utilization of context in modulating responses to irrelevant information on the Stroop task between a group of schizophrenia outpatients and matched controls.

We have demonstrated the presence of a localized, synapse-dependent negativity (N29) recorded over the upper cervical spine after bilateral stimulation of the posterior tibial nerves at the ankle. The amplitude of N29 is maximal at the level of the second cervical spine and decreases at more rostral and caudal levels. The peak latency of N29 remains(More)
