Even though previous neuropsychological studies and clinical case reports have suggested an association between pedophilia and frontocortical dysfunction, our knowledge about the neurobiological mechanisms underlying pedophilia is still fragmentary. Specifically, the brain morphology of such disorders has not yet been investigated using MR imaging(More)
Although the neuronal mechanisms underlying normal sexual motivation and function have recently been examined, the alterations in brain function in deviant sexual behaviours such as paedophilia are largely unknown. The objective of this study was to identify paedophilia-specific functional networks implicated in sexual arousal. Therefore a consecutive(More)
OBJECTIVE The neurobiological mechanisms of deviant sexual preferences such as pedophilia are largely unknown. The objective of this study was to analyze whether brain activation patterns of homosexual pedophiles differed from those of a nonpedophile homosexual control group during visual sexual stimulation. METHOD A consecutive sample of 11 pedophile(More)
During the initial development of the IEEE 802.11n (11n) amendment for improving the throughput of wireless LANs, a lot of excitement existed surrounding the potential higher throughput (i.e., faster downloads), and increased range (distance) achievable. However, delays in the development of this standard (which began in 2003, and is still in the final(More)
This study assessed the acquisition of conditional-associations using neutral and individually threatening nouns in 16 females with anorexia nervosa (AN), 16 females with bulimia nervosa (BN) and 16 normal controls (NC). Groups did not differ in terms of age, sex, handedness, depression, intelligence, verbal memory and verbal fluency measures. Furthermore,(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors assessed lifetime and 6-month occurrence and phenomenology of self-injurious behavior in patients with eating disorders. METHOD Women (N=376) in inpatient treatment for an eating disorder (anorexia: N=119, bulimia: N=137, eating disorder not otherwise specified: N=120) were assessed for self-injurious behavior and completed the(More)
Although heterosexual and homosexual individuals clearly show differences in subjective response to heterosexual and homosexual sexual stimuli, the neurobiological processes underlying sexual orientation are largely unknown. We addressed the question whether the expected differences in subjective response to visual heterosexual and homosexual stimuli may be(More)
OBJECTIVE This study reports on findings concerning the test-retest reliability of the Eating Disorder Inventory 2 (EDI-2). METHODS Three hundred twenty-seven female inpatients who met the DSM-IV criteria for eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or eating disorders not otherwise specified) and 209 inpatients with a diagnosis of depression,(More)
BACKGROUND Left cardiac sympathetic denervation (LCSD) may be a therapeutic adjunct for young patients with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) and long QT syndrome (LQTS) who are not fully protected by beta-blockade. OBJECTIVE The objective of this analysis was to report our institutional experience with LSCD in young patients(More)
