The relationship between the time course of clinical response to clozapine and the time course of clozapine plasma levels has never been investigated. In the present study, we assessed prospectively the clinical response to clozapine and the plasma levels of the drug and its major metabolites in 32 drug-resistant patients with schizophrenia kept on a fixed(More)
The occurrence of spikes during an electroencephalogram is a basic feature of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy of Childhood (BREC). In this study we addressed the question of whether the interictal spike structure is different between "typical" and "atypical" BREC patients. Atypical BREC patients are characterized by having other neurological abnormalities in(More)
Children with cortical visual impairment (CVI) usually have a typical clinical presentation. However, in some cases, it may be useful to have confirmatory evidence based on objective electrophysiologic information. To achieve this, we examined some mathematically derived parameters constructed from 20 channel visual evoked potential (VEP). A group of 30(More)
We examined how changes in electrode position affected the visual evoked potential in 74 high-risk newborns using a multiple electrode technique. The variation in the visual evoked potential across the occiput was documented. Visual evoked potentials that were visible at one occipital electrode position were absent at a different electrode position in 21 of(More)
