Normative data are presented for 570 children on newly revised versions of the Conners Parent and Teacher Rating Scales. Symptom ratings were factor analyzed and structures compared favorably with those obtained using earlier versions of the questionnaires. Interrater correlations (mother-father, parent-teacher) were also reported. Age and sex effects were(More)
OBJECTIVE The study of individual psychotherapeutic approaches to the treatment of schizophrenia has yielded equivocal findings, partly because of methodologic problems. Further, the ability of psychosocial treatments to prevent psychotic relapse appears to lessen over time. The authors' goal was to develop and test a demonstrably effective individual(More)
Computerized spectral analysis of the EEG was performed in 35 patients with Alzheimer's disease and compared to patients with major depression (23) and healthy elderly controls (61). Compared to controls, demented patients had a significant increase in the theta and alpha 1 bandwidths as well as an increased theta-beta difference. The parasagittal mean(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous analyses of the personal and social adjustment of outpatients with schizophrenia have either relied on the assessment of unrepresentative patients who survived without relapse or used analyses that included relapse assessments, a potential confound when different rates of relapse existed among treatment conditions. The authors' goal was(More)
Computerized spectral and visual EEG analyses were performed in 35 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and compared to 23 patients with major depression and to 61 healthy elderly controls. In particular, we were interested in the diagnostic efficacy of these two techniques in the identification of cases of AD with only mild cognitive impairment (as(More)
We demonstrated earlier that a novel family psychoeducational approach and an individual social skills training approach designed for patients living in high-expressed emotion households each reduced schizophrenic relapse by one-half when compared with medication controls in the 1st year after hospital discharge. The combination of treatments resulted in no(More)
On the basis of two EEG sleep criteria, REM latency and REM activity, the authors achieved 81% accuracy in distinguishing between 47 patients with primary depression and 48 patients with secondary depression using discriminant analysis. Sleep efficiency, the percentage of delta sleep, and the percentage of REM sleep discriminated between psychotic and(More)
The effect of nortriptyline was assessed on the EEG sleep of 20 inpatients with major depressive syndrome. While 25 mg of nortriptyline had an immediate effect on REM sleep variables, relatively little influence on sleep continuity measures was noted. Subsequent administration of 75 and 100 mg of nortriptyline produced continued REM sleep suppression over(More)
Somatoform disorder (SD) is recognized as an important clinical entity in general medicine although its psychiatric nature is insufficiently appreciated. Its prevalence and descriptive validity among psychiatric patients have not been investigated. These two aspects of SD are examined by comparing it with depressive and anxiety disorders, both of which(More)
Sleep was recorded in nine drug-free depressive patients and nine age- and sex-matched normal control subjects. All-night spectral analysis of the sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) showed a significantly reduced power density in the 0.25-2.50 Hz band in the depressive group. Power density values integrated over the entire frequency range (0.25-25.0 Hz)(More)
