1. Results of investigations of the immune function in affective disorders are conflicting. Some authors described an immune suppression, others an immune activation in major depression. The authors performed a study of cellular immunity in the MDD subtype endogenous depression. 23 patients suffering from endogenous depression were investigated during the(More)
If you've programmed with graphical user interface (GUI) libraries in the past 10 years or so, you have likely come across the model-view-controller (MVC) design. MVC was first introduced by Trygve Reenskaug, a Smalltalk developer at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in 1979, and helps to decouple data access and business logic from the manner in which it(More)
A possible connection between immunological alterations and schizophrenia has been discussed for many years. We studied 55 schizophrenic patients in an acute stage of illness before they began neuroleptic treatment. 35 patients who showed clinical improvement on neuroleptics, and 51 healthy controls. Our interest was focused on parameters of cellular(More)

Until recently, attention has been focused on the pathogenetic aspects of immunological findings in schizophrenic patients. There has been no mention of the relationship between such findings and schizophrenic symptoms. To study the probable relationship between T-cells and T-cell subgroups in the course and prognosis of schizophrenia, immunological and(More)
We found an increased lymphocyte proliferation after stimulation with an antigen "cocktail" in 49 schizophrenic patients and 37 patients suffering from affective psychosis, compared with 45 healthy control subjects. On the basis of this and other findings such as increased numbers of CD3+ and CD4+ cells, an increased ratio of CD4+/CD8+ cells, and a reduced(More)
Gestures are a major form of human communication. Hence gestures are found to be an appealing way to interact with computers, as they are already a natural part of how we communicate. A primary goal of gesture recognition is to create a system which can identify specific human gestures and use them to convey information for device control and by(More)
