Gender differences in the cortical electrophysiological processing of visual emotional stimuli
The processing of visual emotional stimuli has been investigated previously; however, gender differences in the processing of emotional stimuli remain to be clarified. Expand

Personality factors in Seasonal Affective Disorder: Is seasonality an aspect of neuroticism?
Abstract Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a recently-defined variant of recurrent major depression which is understood as having a uniquely biological aetiology. Notwithstanding the appealingExpand

Chronobiotics--drugs that shift rhythms.
A chronobiotic is defined and levels of action within the mammalian circadian pacemaker system, such as the retina, retinohypothalamic tract, geniculohypothalamic tract, suprachiasmatic nuclei,Expand

Augmentation of serotonin enhances pleasant and suppresses unpleasant cortical electrophysiological responses to visual emotional stimuli in humans
The serotonergic system is one of the major systems targeted in the pharmacological treatment of a wide range of mood disorders including depression; however, little is known about the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the effects of serotonin on affective phenomena including emotional behaviours, mood and emotional processing.

A historical justification for and retrospective analysis of the systematic application of light therapy in Parkinson’s disease
Abstract For the past 40 years the primary purpose of therapeutics for Parkinson’s disease (PD) has been to replace deficient dopamine (DA) in the nigrostriatal dopamine (NSD) system. Even in theExpand

Circadian rhythm disorders among adolescents: assessment and treatment options
Delayed sleep phase disorder (DSPD) — a circadian rhythm sleep disorder — is most commonly seen in adolescents. The differential diagnosis between DSPD and conventional psychophysiological insomniaExpand

Orphan neurones and amine excess: the functional neuropathology of Parkinsonism and neuropsychiatric disease
The aetiology and treatment of Parkinsonism is currently conceptualised within a dopamine (DA) deficiency-repletion framework. Loss of striatal DA is thought to cause motor impairment of whichExpand

Parkinson's Disease, Lights and Melanocytes: Looking Beyond the Retina
Critical analysis of recent research suggesting that light pollution causes Parkinson's disease (PD) reveals that such a hypothesis is unsustainable in the context of therapeutic use of light inExpand

Breaking away from dopamine deficiency: an essential new direction for Parkinson’s disease
Abstract For the past 40 years Parkinson’s disease (PD) has been intrinsically associated with dopamine (DA) deficiency of the nigrostriatal DA system. One of the fundamental strengths of thisExpand

Entrainment of circadian wheel-running rhythms of the northern brown bandicoot, Isoodon macrourus, by daily restricted feeding schedules
Northern brown bandicoots (Isoodon macrourus) were subjected to restricted feeding for 3 h in the middle of the light period of a 14: 10 light/dark cycle and immediately following this in constantExpand
