Ovarian steroids appear to alter neuronal function in women, but direct physiological evidence is lacking. In animals, estradiol enhances excitatory neurotransmission. Progesterone-derived neurosteroids increase GABAergic inhibition. The effect of weak transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex on the motor evoked potential (MEP) from(More)

BACKGROUND Depressed patients show mood-congruent errors in the identification of emotion in facial expressions. Errors consist of impaired performance (recognition errors) and negative bias (seeing faces as sadder than they are). This abnormal processing may both reflect and contribute to the negative affective state. In this study, we administered an(More)
BACKGROUND Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) involves an aberrant behavioral response to normal hormone secretion. Pathogenetic theories posit abnormal modulation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) transmission in the brain by neuroactive metabolites of progesterone (neurosteroids). In earlier transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies of the motor cortex, we(More)
A QR based technique is presented for estimating the approximate numerical rank and corresponding signal subspace of a matrix together with the subspace projection of the least squares weights. Theoretical difficulties associated with conventional QR factorisation are overcome by applying the technique of Row-Zeroing QR to the covariance matrix.(More)
