In the sera from 42 patients receiving quinidine, (3S)-3-hydroxyquinidine (3-OH), an active metabolite of quinidine, and quinidine were determined by high-pressure liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. These results were added to those of 25 other patients reported previously. The 3-OH/quinidine ratio averaged 0.34 +/- 0.17 (SD) with a range of(More)
— This pilot study applied Lempel-Ziv Complexity (LZC) to 22 resting EEG signals, collected using the 10-20 international system, from 11 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 11 age-matched controls. This allowed for frequency band analysis as the EEG signals were first pre-filtered with a third order Hamming window in the ranges F to F+WHz with both(More)
