BACKGROUND Given the paucity of quantitative EEG studies using coherence measures to understand the electrophysiological functional integrity of sub-cortical structures in obsessive-compulsive disorder, the current study was carried out. METHODS We obtained EEG coherence values for 20 adult OCD patients (10 males; 10 females) and 19 appropriately matched(More)
OBJECTIVE Auditory hallucinations are a characteristic symptom of schizophrenia and are usually resistant to treatment. The present study was conducted to further support the findings that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) reduces auditory hallucinations, and to evaluate the effect of low-frequency rTMS on auditory hallucinations in(More)
Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) resemble epileptic seizures, but lack clinically evident abnormal electrical activity in the brain. We aimed to assess resting gamma spectral power, current source distribution and functional connectivity in adolescents with PNES. Interictal, 32 channels electroencephalographic recording of 15 adolescents with PNES(More)
Today, psychiatrists are focusing on genetics aspects of various psychiatric disorders not only for a future classification of psychiatric disorders but also a notion that genetics would aid in the development of new medications to treat these disabling illnesses. This review therefore emphasizes on the basics of genetics in psychiatry as well as focuses on(More)
Sir, This is in response to the article' Do Indian researchers read Indian research? a reappraisal, four years later', published in April 2000 (No.2, f Vol.42) issue of your journal. The authors of this article have documented their observations on my article 'Transsexualism in Schizophrenia : a case report' (April, 1998, Vol.40, No.2) that I did not refer(More)
Increased resting theta activity is one consistent observation occurring during all the phases of schizophrenia. However, the resting theta oscillations during the remission phase are yet unclear. We studied resting theta current source density and functional connectivity in remitted schizophrenia and compared with healthy controls. Significantly increased(More)
Introduction: The findings of the quantitative EEG power-spectral studies in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have so far been mostly inconsistent. Moreover, none of the studies has been a high resolution one. Aim: The aim of the study was to examine the band power of delta, theta, alpha, beta1 and beta2 bands with high resolution EEG data in patients(More)
