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)
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)
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)
Machine learning approaches for medical decision-making processes are valuable when both high classification accuracy and less feature requirements are satisfied. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) successfully meet the first goal with its adaptive engine, while nature-inspired algorithms are focusing on the feature selection (FS) process in order to(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)
Anahtar sözcükler: Transkraniyal doğru akım uyarımı, nöromodülasyon, etki, tedavi ABSTRACT Transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) has been established as a noninvasive tool for modulation of cortical function. It involves the passing of a weak direct electrical current through the cerebral cortex using electrodes placed upon the scalp. TDCS(More)
