Hypofrontality in panic disorder and major depressive disorder assessed by multi‐channel near‐infrared spectroscopy
Investigating whether panic disorder reveals frontal lobe dysfunction while performing the word fluency test by using multi‐channel near‐infrared spectroscopy clarified that hypofrontality in panic disorder is evident even with neutral stimuli of little emotional load.
Comparison of hangover effects among triazolam, flunitrazepam and quazepam in healthy subjects: A preliminary report
Subjective hangover effects assessed by SSS and SEQ in the morning were prominent for flunitrazepam and quazepam relative to triazolam, whereas objective indices such as MSLT or activity counts obtained in actigraphy indicated a marked hangover effect of quazEPam compared with the other two compounds restrictively in the afternoon, which were nearly in accordance with their pharmacokinetic profiles.
Changes in regional cerebral blood flow following antidepressant treatment in late‐life depression
This work examined whether the decreased rCBF in individuals with late‐life depression resolves following treatment, and found little evidence of a longitudinal change in r CBF through remission.
Differentiating early and late‐onset depression with multichannel near‐infrared spectroscopy
The aim of the present study was to examine whether LOD exhibits more prominent hypofrontality than EOD during performance of the word fluency task (WFT) under multichannel near‐infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), a newly developed non‐invasive functional neuroimaging technique.
