Topographic measures of electroencephalographic (EEG) amplitude were used to compare recovered alcoholics (n = 14) with sex- and age-matched control subjects. Delta, alpha, and beta activity did not distinguish the groups, but regional differences in theta distribution did. Recovered alcoholics showed more uniform distributions of theta amplitudes in(More)

Behavioral, cognitive, and regional electroencephalogram (EEG) measures were obtained in a 4-week open pilot study of 14 patients with probable Alzheimer's disease by(More)
Following an initial double-blind, randomized, parallel treatment group comparison of fluvoxamine, desipramine, and placebo in 89 outpatients with major depression at two centers, double-blind crossover to fluvoxamine was offered to 13 of 22 desipramine-treated completers of the initial phase who were considered failures on desipramine. Twelve elected to(More)
