Social phobia is characterized as pervasive social timidity in social settings. Although much is known about this disorder, aspects of its clinical presentation remain unexplored, in particular characteristics that distinguish the generalized and non-generalized subtypes. For example, it remains unclear whether patients with the non-generalized subtype… (More)
Autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are neurodevelopmental disorders that cannot be codiagnosed under existing diagnostic guidelines (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association, 4th ed., text rev.). However, reports are emerging that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is sometimes… (More)
Although the presentation of social anxiety disorder (SAD) in adults is well documented, less is known about its clinical manifestation in children and adolescents. To date, most studies have included combined samples of children and adolescents despite the fact that this age range represents an extensive period of growth and development. This study… (More)
Bipolar affective disorder (BP) is a major neuropsychiatric disorder with high heritability and complex inheritance. Previously reported linkage between BP and DNA markers in the pericentromeric region of chromosome 18, with a parent-of-origin effect (linkage was present in pedigrees with paternal transmission and absent in pedigrees with exclusive maternal… (More)
OBJECTIVE Social anxiety disorder (SAD) impacts social, occupational and academic functioning. Although many interventions report change in social distress, improvement in social behavior remains under-addressed. This investigation examined the additive impact of social skills training (SST) for the treatment of SAD. METHOD Using a sample of 106 adults… (More)
In this paper the state model formation using subspace identification method is discussed and implemented for the real time distillation column used in air separation unit. The algorithm used is numerical method for state space subspace identification (N4SID), the data is processed for modelling and results are discussed.
––In the present work two popular methods for modelling a system are compared using modelling of Air Separation Unit (ASU). To Model any MIMO system in general both ARMA and Subspace Identification methods can be used, and the optimum results can be achieved only after thorough investigation in the actual process of the system and the methodology by which… (More)
