The side effects of a five-times bilateral electric shock therapy were clinically and computer-tomographically investigated. A connection exists between the number of electric shock treatments which are carried out and the expression of a transitory organic psychosyndrome. However, no significant differences in relation to the initial findings were… (More)
34 children with extrapyramidal hyperkinesis were treated with Tiaprid. With 22 children the extrapyramidal syndromes could be reduced considerably or disappeared. A reduction of vigilance in the phase of adjustment was the only side effect.
The RKHS-based optimal image interpolation method, presented by Chen and de Figueiredo (1993), is applied to scattered potential field measurements. The RKHS which admits only interpolants consistent with Laplace's equation is defined and its kernel, derived. The algorithm is compared to bicubic spline interpolation, and is found to yield vastly superior… (More)
Neurophysiological examinations of 100 long term alcohol dependent patients who were having neuropsychiatric treatment, showed symptoms of polytopic damage of the peripheral and central nervous system. The results show that for recognition of the damage an extensive diagnostic programme must be used.
Measurement of heart rate variability was performed in 106 healthy volunteers and 31 alcoholics. The mean momentary arrhythmia (MMA) of normal individuals showed an exponential decrease with increasing age. Cardiac autonomic neuropathy was found in 5 of 31 alcoholics. In agreement with the concept of hyperexcitability the withdrawing alcoholics had a… (More)
In order to investigate the hypothesis that language-impaired children also show deficits in memory, 110 language-impaired and 123 children showing no such impairments (average age 10;0 yrs.) were tested for verbal memory and selecting attention through a matching familiar figures test. As an additional measure, teachers assessed the children, using DSM… (More)
Polyneuropathies by long term alcohol dependent Patients are characterized by "axonal" and "demyelinized" type. By abstinence we found a diminution of symptoms.
Canalized F-waves and H-reflexes occurring on small hand and foot muscles are to be considered symptoms of central disinhibition. Occurrence of these waves and reflexes in patients with hemispastic syndrome is analyzed and correlated with clinical aspects.
A correct diagnosis of progressive muscle dystrophy type Duchenne is important for consultation of the family of patients. The muscles of neck, shoulder, back, pelvis and legs of 23 patients were examined by computed tomography. The density of selected muscles were measured and compared with that of normal probands. Typical changes in the density-pattern… (More)
