Normal rats showed faster inhibitory learning about a light conditioned stimulus (CS) if it had previously been an inconsistent predictor of a tone CS than if it had been a consistent predictor of the tone. In contrast, the inhibitory learning of rats with ibotenic acid lesions of the amygdala central nucleus (CN) was unaffected by the prior predictive(More)
BACKGROUNDS AND OBJECTIVES Patients with thyroid dysfunction frequently have neuropsychiatric complaints such as lack of concentration, poor memory, depression, anxiety and mania, which suggest brain dysfunction. However, the underlying process of this dysfunction remains unclear. Recent studies of the glutamatergic system have offered important insight(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether DTI abnormalities in patients with nondemented subcortical ischemic vascular disease (SIVD) are correlated to general cognitive function and executive function independent of conventional MRI parameters. METHODS Sixty-six SIVD patients including 30 with cognitive impairment without dementia (VCIND) and 36 with normal(More)
OBJECTIVES Patients with hyperthyroidism frequently have neuropsychiatric complaints such as lack of concentration, poor performance in memory, depression, anxiety and mania. These symptoms suggest the dysfunction of brain. However, the underlying process of this dysfunction is not well understood. At the same time, glutamatergic system has been considered(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI) characteristics of normal-appearing white matter (NAWM) and normal-appearing gray matter (NAGM) on conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with subcortical ischemic vascular disease (SIVD) and examine the relation of such features with the general cognitive function of the patients.(More)
