Due to the increasing importance of the central serotonergic neurotransmission for pathogenetic concepts and as a target of pharmacotherapeutic interventions in psychiatry, reliable indicators of this system are needed. Several findings from basic and clinical research suggest that the stimulus intensity dependence of auditory evoked potentials (AEP) may be(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate the EEG signs of early stage Alzheimer's disease (AD) by conventional analyses and by methods quantifying linear and nonlinear EEG-complexity. The EEG was recorded in 12 mild AD patients and in an age-matched healthy control group (24 subjects) in both eyes open and eyes closed conditions. Frequency spectra,(More)
Auditory evoked potentials (EPs) elicited by standard (STs) and deviant tones (DTs) of different probabilities were studied in freely moving cats during wakefulness and sleep. A large double peaked negativity, so-called mismatch negativity (MMN), was evoked by the unattended low probability DTs. The EPs recorded from the AI and AII areas of the auditory(More)
The dynamics of many biological systems have recently been attributed to low-dimensional chaos instead of high-dimensional noise, as previously though. Because biological data are invariably nonstationary, especially when recorded over a long interval, the conventional measures of low-dimensional chaos (e.g., the correlation dimension algorithms) cannot be(More)
The mismatch negativity component (MMN) of auditory event-related potentials (ERP) was recorded in four aphasic patients and in age, gender and education matched controls. The MMN changes elicited by tone, vowel, voicing stop consonant and place-of articulation contrasts were recorded over both hemispheres. The results of MMN amplitude, latency and(More)
Our goal was to measure indices characterizing EEG-reactivity in young and elderly subjects. It was hypothesized that EEG-reactivity as reflected by different measures would be lower in the elderly. In two age groups (young: N= 23, mean age = 21.5 +/- 2.2 years; old: N= 25, mean age = 66.9 +/- 3.6 years) absolute frequency spectra, Omega-complexity,(More)
A valid indicator of central serotonergic neurotransmission would be useful for various diagnostic and psychopharmacological purposes in psychiatry. However, known peripheral serotonergic measures only partially reflect serotonergic function in the brain. Previous findings suggest that the intensity dependence of auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) is closely(More)
During the CNV recorded in a simple auditory working memory task, task-specific decrease of the relative delta band and a transient increase of the absolute theta band were seen, accompanied by an increase of the absolute alpha1 and alpha2 bands in the posterior region. The decreased delta power probably corresponds to increased task-evoked arousal, whereas(More)
The application of "chaos theory" to the physical and chemical sciences has resolved some long-standing problems, such as how to calculate a turbulent event in fluid dynamics or how to quantify the pathway of a molecule during Brownian motion. Biology and medicine also have unresolved problems, such as how to predict the occurrence of lethal arrhythmias or(More)

Human findings indicate that the most important brain regions in the electrogenesis of the P3 event-related potential component are the junction of the parieto-temporal lobes, parts of the limbic system and some parts of the thalamus. Data collected in animal experiments support the results of the human studies emphasizing the role of the association(More)
