OBJECTIVE In this study the authors compared the cost-effectiveness of three approaches to case management for individuals with severe mental illness who were at risk for homelessness: assertive community treatment alone, assertive community treatment with community workers, and brokered case management (purchase of services). METHOD Individuals were(More)
The heterodimeric subunit, SRP9/14, of the signal recognition particle (SRP) has previously been found to bind to scAlu and scB1 RNAs in vitro and to exist in large excess over SRP in anthropoid cells. Here we show that human and mouse SRP9/14 bind with high affinities to other Alu-like RNAs of different evolutionary ages including the neuron-specific BC200(More)
It is well established that memory is more accurate for own-relative to other-race faces (own-race bias), which has been suggested to result from larger perceptual expertise for own-race faces. Previous studies also demonstrated better memory for own-relative to other-gender faces, which is less likely to result from differences in perceptual expertise, and(More)
Young adult participants are more accurate at remembering young as compared with old faces (own-age bias). This study investigated behavioral and event-related potential (ERP) correlates of recognition memory in 4 consecutive age categories (ranging from 19-29, 30-44, 45-59, and 60-80 years), both with respect to face and participant age. Young and young(More)
Disturbances in the corpus callosum (CC) indicating altered interhemispheric connectivity have been associated with Tourette syndrome (TS). The objective of the present study was to refine knowledge about interhemispheric connectivity in TS by analyzing four different diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) parameters in a very homogeneous group of treatment-naïve(More)
Young adults more accurately remember own-age than older faces. We tested whether this own-age bias (OAB) is reduced by increased experience. Young experts (geriatric nurses) and controls performed a recognition experiment with young and old faces. Critically, while control participants demonstrated better memory for young faces, no OAB was observed in the(More)
OBJECTIVE A community impact model was used to estimate how consolidation of all long-term inpatient care at one state mental hospital affected the town in which the hospital was located. METHODS Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to measure objective and subjective impacts of the hospital's expanded role. Objective impacts included(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors examined different ways of measuring unit costs and how methodological assumptions can affect the magnitude of cost estimates and the ratio of treatment costs in comparative studies of mental health interventions. Four methodological choices may bias cost estimates: study perspective, definition of the opportunity cost of resources,(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors compared service utilization and costs for acutely ill psychiatric patients treated in a day hospital/crisis respite program or in a hospital inpatient program. METHOD The patients (N = 197) were randomly assigned to one of the two programs and followed for 10 months after discharge. Both programs were provided by a community mental(More)
