The stability of the steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEPs) across trials and subjects makes them a suitable tool for the investigation of the visual system. The reproducible pattern of the frequency characteristics of SSVEPs shows a global amplitude maximum around 10 Hz and additional local maxima around 20 and 40 Hz, which have been argued to(More)
The purpose of the present study was to examine the association between repetitive and frightening dreams and suicidal tendency in patients with major depression. Depressed patients who reported frequent nightmare (N = 29) and depressed patients who reported dreaming but never nightmares (N = 34) were evaluated using the Schedule for Affective Disorders and(More)
INTRODUCTION Understanding the biological underpinnings of unipolar (UD) and bipolar depression (BD) is vital for avoiding inappropriate treatment through the misdiagnosis of bipolar patients in their first depressive episode. One plausible way to distinguish between UD and BD is to compare EEG brain dynamics to identify potential neurophysiological(More)
OBJECTIVE Many applications such as biomedical signals require selecting a subset of the input features in order to represent the whole set of features. A feature selection algorithm has recently been proposed as a new approach for feature subset selection. METHODS Feature selection process using ant colony optimization (ACO) for 6 channel pre-treatment(More)
The present study is an investigation of the relationships of sociometric status, gender, and academic achievement to loneliness levels of Turkish adolescents. Participants were 370 secondary school students (186 girls and 184 boys). Data on loneliness and social dissatisfaction levels of students were collected with the Turkish version of S. R. Asher and(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in pregnant patients with depression. Thirty depressed pregnant patients received rTMS over the left prefrontal cortex for 6 days in a week, from Monday to Saturday for 3 weeks. The rTMS intensity was set at 100% of(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study reported here was to examine the safety and effectiveness of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in elderly patients with depression. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty-five depressed elderly patients received rTMS over their left prefrontal cortex for 6 days per week, from Monday to Saturday, for 3(More)
We examined the efficacy of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in 419 patients with treatment-resistant depression. The patients received daily sessions of rTMS over the left prefrontal cortex as an adjuvant to pharmacotherapy. The rTMS intensity was set at 100% of the motor threshold and 25 Hz stimulation, with train(More)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate, whether an association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and clinical features and affective temperaments exists or not in first manic episode of bipolar disorder (BD) with or without previous depressive episode. Methods: Diagnosed with dipolar disorder type I according to DSM-IV criteria fifty four(More)
