This study evaluated the efficacy of a group cognitive treatment for pathological gambling. Gamblers, meeting DSM-IV criteria for pathological gambling, were randomly assigned to treatment (N=34) or wait-list control (N=24) conditions. Cognitive correction techniques were used first to target gamblers' erroneous perceptions about randomness, and then to(More)
This study evaluated the efficacy of a cognitive treatment package for pathological gambling. Sixty-six gamblers, meeting DSM-IV criteria for pathological gambling, were randomly assigned to treatment or wait-list control conditions. Cognitive correction techniques were used first to target gamblers' erroneous perceptions about randomness and then to(More)
Several authors attribute excessive responsibility a predominant role in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) [Salkovskis, P. M. (1985) Behaviour Research and Therapy, 23, 571-583; Rachman, S. (1993) Behaviour Research and Therapy, 31, 149-154; van Oppen, P. & Arntz, A. (1994) Behaviour Research and Therapy, 32, 79-87]. The present studies aimed at(More)
Angiotensinogen (ANG) messenger RNA is expressed in opossum kidney (OK) proximal tubular cells. To examine whether thyroid hormone, L-T3, could stimulate the expression of the ANG gene in OK proximal tubular cells, fusion genes, consisting of various lengths of the 5'-flanking region of the rat angiotensinogen gene linked to a human growth hormone reporter(More)
Angiotensinogen (ANG) messenger RNA is expressed in cultured opossum kidney (OK) proximal tubular cells. The aim of these studies was to investigate whether steroid hormones (dexamethasone, estradiol, testosterone, and progesterone) could stimulate the expression of renal ANG gene in vitro. Fusion genes consisting of various lengths of the 5'-flanking(More)
