OBJECTIVE This study reports the first paired measurements of glucose metabolism and volume of the anterior cingulate gyrus in autism. METHOD Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans of seven high-functioning autistic patients and seven sex- and age-matched normal volunteers were coregistered. After the anterior(More)
This study examined the overall psychological effects of inebriation facilitated by the naturally-occurring plant hallucinogen Salvia divinorum using a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. Thirty healthy individuals self-administered Salvia divinorum via combustion and inhalation in a quiet, comfortable research setting. Experimental(More)
BACKGROUND A subset of patients with schizophrenia, defined on the basis of longitudinal deficits in self-care, may show a classic ("Kraepelinian") degenerative course. An independent validator of the phenomenologically defined Kraepelinian subtype might be provided by a structural indicator of possible brain degeneration: ventricular size as measured by(More)
We previously obtained evidence indicating a genetic linkage marker for schizophrenia and related disorders (two-point lod score = 3.72, P = 0.01) on the short arm of chromosome 5(5p14.1-13.1) in one large pedigree. Automated computer algorithms were used to edge the brain and measure the volume of the ventricles, regional sulcal atrophy, and skull size and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the longitudinal relationship between moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD), decline in kidney function, and microalbuminuria with subsequent cognitive decline and incident dementia. METHODS This study is based on a population-based cohort of 7,839 subjects over 65 years with 7 years of follow-up. Glomerular filtration rate was(More)

We build theory on the process of collective identity resurrection through a qualitative study investigating how community members reenergized a valued community identity following years of decline. Our findings suggest a recursive model of identity resurrection, in which community leaders marshal tangible resources such as money and human talent to(More)
