Using a randomized, double-blind, cross-over design, we investigated the effects of carbamazepine (CBZ) and phenytoin (PHT) on memory and spectral EEG components in 15 healthy adults. Each subject was treated with each drug for 1 month, separated by a 1-month washout. Evaluations were conducted at baseline, at the end of each treatment month, and 1 month(More)
We investigated neuropsychological effects of carbamazepine and phenytoin in 21 healthy adults using a randomized, double-blind, double-crossover design and treating each subject with each drug for 1 month, separated by a 1-month washout. There were neuropsychological evaluations at baseline, the end of each treatment month, and 1 month after the last(More)
Allochiria is the mislocation of sensory stimuli to the corresponding opposite half of the body or space. Obersteiner (1882) introduced the term allochiria (Greek allos = other + chiria = hand), and more than 20 authors employed it in this context over the next 25 years. Stewart (1894) described a related phenomenon in which stimuli are displaced to a(More)
Many athletes with or without occlusal problems are now using mandibular orthopedic repositioning appliances (MORA) or simply occlusal splints, supposedly to enhance skeletal muscle strength. Recent research to establish these claims has suffered from design inaccuracies. In theory, the MORA reduces temporomandibular stress during clenched jaw efforts. It(More)
P3 potentials evoked by spoken words were recorded from seven patients with disorders of recent memory and seven age-matched controls. Inclusion criteria included a clearly identifiable P3 to pure tone stimuli. Absence or marked decrement of P3 to word stimuli was seen in the patients even though they could perform the word task. The results are consistent(More)
This work was supported in part by Laval University (sabbatical leave of Dr. A.Y. Bélanger), the School of Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University, and Medtronic of Canada Inc. There is much speculation in athletic, physical therapy, and sports medicine circles about the relative cutaneous (superficial) vs. muscular (deep) perception of pain felt during(More)
Naloxone 0.16% ophthalmic drops or placebo drops were self-administered to one eye by 13 runners 250 times in a double-blind fashion over three weeks of various intensities and durations of running. An increasing incidence of miosis after running and ipsilateral mydriasis after the naloxone eye drops were administered was noted to correlate with increased(More)
This study evaluated the time course to Malaise III in human subjects given naloxone and placebo with a double-blind cross-over protocol in the prevention of motion sickness induced by exposure to coriolis stimulation in a rotating chair. During naloxone tests, subjects reached the designated level of sickness sooner than during the placebo testing(More)
The intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) assay is a critical test in the diagnosis and management of PTH-mediated hypercalcemia, including parathyroid carcinoma (PCa). We hypothesized that the survival of patients diagnosed with PCa has improved since adoption of the iPTH assay into clinical practice. We identified all confirmed cases of PCa within the(More)
