Dysfunction of frontal-striatal-thalamic-frontal circuitry has been hypothesized to underlie both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Tourette syndrome (TS). Several research groups have therefore used anatomic magnetic resonance imaging (aMRI) to obtain volumetric measurements of subregions of the frontal lobe in these disorders. Most(More)
OBJECTIVE The inferior parietal lobule is a heteromodal association cortical region that has been implicated in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Inferior parietal lobule gray matter volumes have been shown to differ between healthy male and female subjects, with male subjects having larger left volumes. The authors sought to determine whether these(More)
The inferior parietal lobule (IPL) - a neocortical region and part of the heteromodal association cortex (HASC) - has been hypothesized to exhibit sexual dimorphism, as do other HASC regions, particularly with regard to asymmetry. Using a reliable method for measuring IPL gray matter volume based upon individual sulcal-gyral landmarks, we measured this(More)
Continuation and maintenance electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is used to prevent relapse and recurrence of depressive episodes in those patients who have failed previous continuation and/or maintenance pharmacotherapy and who have also responded to an acute course of ECT. These patients frequently have histories of medication-resistant depression, medication(More)
