BACKGROUND The present study was designed to assess, using event-related potentials, whether aberrant semantic processing reported in schizophrenia results from primary semantic overactivation or contextual dysregulation. METHODS The visual event-related brain potentials were compared between 9 schizophrenic subjects and 16 normal control subjects(More)
Repetition effect in event-related potentials (ERPs) was studied in 10 non-thought-disordered (non-TD) patients with schizophrenia, 8 thought-disordered (TD) patients with schizophrenia, and 10 normal control subjects while they performed a semantic categorization task with incidental word repetitions. All patients were in a stable or partially remitted(More)
Glimepiride is a potent sulfonylurea agent and is widely used for type 2 diabetic patients, however, the safety and efficacy of glimepiride in patients with fair diabetic control (HbA1c level: 6.5-7.9%) have not been investigated so far. Therefore, we investigated the safety and efficacy of glimepiride titration using self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) in(More)
Cardiopulmonary arrest in pregnancy has a very high maternal and fetal mortality rate. We report a case of successful maternal and neonatal survival in association with emergency cesarean section of a schizophrenic pregnant patient. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of cardiopulmonary arrest in a pregnant woman with schizophrenia. The(More)
