INTRODUCTION Irregular work schedules often results in a disruption of the normal circadian rhythm that can causes sleepiness when wakefulness is required and insomnia during the main sleep episode. METHOD Two physicians using the Sleep-EVAL system interviewed 817 staff members of a psychiatric hospital. The interviews were done during the working hours.(More)
This paper presents a telerehabilitation system for kinesthetic therapy (treatment of patients with arm motion coordination disorders). Patients can receive therapy while being immersed in a virtual environment (VE) with haptic feedback. Our system is based on a Haptic Workstation that provides force-feedback on the upper limbs. One of our main(More)
In most vehicle simulators, complete physical mock-ups equipped with steering wheel, gearshift and pedals are required. These devices are essential in trying to simulate real conditions, but as a drawback the system becomes expensive, huge (non mobile), and limited to reflect changes on the vehicle type, dimensions, or interior design. We have implemented(More)
BACKGROUND Most neuroimaging studies investigating sexual arousal in paedophilia used erotic pictures together with a blocked fMRI design and long stimulus presentation time. While this approach allows the detection of sexual arousal, it does not enable the assessment of the immediate processing of erotically salient stimuli. Our study aimed to identify(More)
Pedophilia is characterized by a persistent sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Treatment with anti-androgen agents, such as luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) agonists, reduces testosterone levels and thereby sexual drive and arousal. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to compare visual erotic stimulation pre- and(More)
BACKGROUND Disturbance of sleep-wake cycles is common in major depressive disorder (MDD), usually as insomnia, but also as hypersomnia or reduced daytime alertness. Agomelatine, an MT(1) and MT(2) receptor agonist and 5-HT(2C) receptor antagonist, represents a novel approach in MDD, with proven antidepressant efficacy and a positive impact on the sleep-wake(More)
The effects of milnacipran (50 mg bid) on sleep patterns of eight depressed inpatients, treated for 4 weeks, were studied during the initial (days 1-3) and terminal (days 26-28) treatment periods and compared with those obtained from three sleep recordings performed just prior to the initiation of the treatment. The clinical evolution of patients was(More)
BACKGROUND The failure to inhibit pleasurable but inappropriate urges is associated with frontal lobe pathology and has been suggested as a possible cause of pedophilic behavior. However, imaging and neuropsychological findings about frontal pathology in pedophilia are heterogeneous. In our study we therefore address inhibition behaviorally and by means of(More)
Characterisation of the electrostatic properties of dental enamel is important for understanding the interfacial processes that occur on a tooth surface and how these relate to the natural ability of our teeth to withstand chemical attack from the acids in many soft drinks. Whereas, the role of the mineral component of the tooth enamel in providing this(More)
BACKGROUND Prolonged-release melatonin (PRM) 2 mg is indicated for insomnia in patients aged 55 years and older. A recent double-blind placebo-controlled study demonstrated 6-month efficacy and safety of PRM in insomnia patients aged 18-80 and lack of withdrawal and rebound symptoms upon discontinuation. OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy, safety, and(More)
