To achieve sustainable production of biofuel from microalgae, a well-optimized and sustained biomass production is prerequisite. The major factor determining the higher productivity of algae is the availability and uptake of CO2 for biomass growth. In this study, an improved CO2 sequestration method leading to improved biomass yields has been investigated.(More)
A young manic patient who showed poor response to lithium, neuroleptics and ECT and developed severe cxtrapyramidal side effects restricting the use of neuroleptics in high doses; showed marked clinical improvement with a combination of carbamazepine and lithium with sustained recovery. The case reported to illustrate the possible synergistic action(More)
In a double-blind, prospective study, 29 patients with endogenous depression were treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). The degree of attenuation in Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression scores after the first ECT was compared between ECT responders and non-responders at the end of the treatment course; a significant difference was obtained,(More)
In depression, the identification of predictors of fast response is necessary to improve patient selection for ECT. In a double-blind, prospective study of 32 endogenously depressed patients treated with ECT, we attempted to identify the clinical characteristics of ECT responders which predicted fast (requiring ≤ 5 treatments to produce maximum recovery)(More)
The fundamental nature of the brain's electrical activities recorded as electroencephalogram (EEG) remains unknown. Linear stochastic models and spectral estimates are the most common methods for the analysis of EEG because of their robustness, simplicity of interpretation, and apparent association with rhythmic behavioral patterns in nature. In this paper,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between psychopathological dimensions in recent-onset neuroleptic-naive schizophrenic patients and EEG alpha coherence in the resting state. 37 neuroleptic-naive recent-onset schizophrenic patients were assessed on the Scale for the Assessment of Negative Symptoms and the Scale for the Assessment of(More)
Little work is available on the acute and time-dependant dopaminergic effects of single electroconvulsive shock (ECS) and multiple ECS despite the posited clinical utility of such schedules of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) administration and the posited role of dopaminergic mechanisms in iieuropsychiatric disorders. In this study, using the(More)
Conventional neurochemical animal models of tardive dyskinesia are based upon the production of dopamine postsynaptic receptor supersensitivity by the chronic administration of neuroleptics. This study demonstrates that the same result is obtained by injecting Sprague-Dawley rats with a single ('high') dose of ipomorphine. It is hence suggested that(More)
The nature of nonlinear interaction has hardly been addressed for a complex signal like electroencephalogram (EEG). In this paper we use of higher-order spectrum to elucidate the hidden characteristics of EEG signals that simply do not arise of random processes. The higher-order spectrum is an extension Fourier spectrum that uses higher moments for spectral(More)
