This study tested the long-term effectiveness of a social-skills program for peer-rejected, victimized, and socially anxious children. Third-grade children with peer problems were randomly assigned to treatment (TX; n=187) or no-treatment control (CO; n=194) groups. One year after the intervention, the pattern of findings was similar to that at(More)
Although alcoholic intoxication is attributed to its pharmacological effects on the cell membranes in brain, the rapid metabolic utilisation of the same alters the metabolism of brain affecting the metabolism of glutamate and GABA which have varied metabolic roles besides serving a major proportion of synaptic activity. A study on the effects of ethanol,(More)
Amino acids of the glutamate family, viz. glutamic acid, aspartic acid, glutamine, gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) and alanine, along with the activities of glutamic acid dehydrogenase (GDH), aspartic acid aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), glutamine synthetase (GS), glutaminase, glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and(More)
The effect of administration of chlorpromazine on the activity of glutamine synthetase and glutaminase and the content of glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in different regions of rat brain was studied in an investigation of the possible role of these amino acids in the lowering of the seizure threshold following prolonged administration of(More)
In this study, we attempted to explore the construct validity of the Kendrick Battery by using an American sample and psychometric tests as indexes of diffuse organicity, depression, and normality. Institutionalized residents (N = 53) were tested twice (6-week interval). When organicity was defined by disorientation and memory deficits, then both the Object(More)
AIM To study the clinical and metabolic profile of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus in children and adolescents in a South Asian population. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Sixty children were recruited. They were divided into three groups: Group I--type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2), Group II--type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1), and Group III--healthy controls.(More)
100 mg of taurine per kg body weight had been administered intraperitoneally and 30 min after the administration the animals were sacrificed. Glutamate dehydrogenase, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, glutaminase, glutamine synthetase, glutamate decarboxylase and GABA aminotransferase along with the content of glutamate and GABA in(More)
The protection against ethanol-induced lipid peroxidation is rendered by antioxidants such as vitamin E and glutathione (GSH) interacting with each other and also functioning independently. A study of the levels of GSH and activities of glutathione peroxidase (GP), glutathione reductase (GR) and glutathione transferase (GST) in the cerebral cortex (CC),(More)
