In an open investigation design two patient groups, under neuroleptics (n=30) and under antidepressants (n=31), were examined three times, the third time under steady-state conditions. A matched control group (n=32) provided the normative values. Various variables, thought to be psychologically relevant in traffic situations were measured on two test(More)
The effects of 0.8 g alcohol kg-1 on CNS processes as reflected in EEG changes were studied in controlled experiments in 14 subjects in relation to BAC levels. A Two Period Change-Over Design with repeated trials over time allowed us to ascertain the time course and to isolate alcohol-induced changes from diurnal variations and effects of sequence and(More)
A group of twenty depressive patients was compared during a 3-4 month course of antidepressant therapy (Maprotiline: n = 6, age = 46.1; dibenzepin: n = 4, age = 43.0; lithium: n = 6, age = 44.5; "mixed" (maprotiline, dibenzepin trimeprimine): n = 4, age = 50.2) with a healthy control group (n = 32, age = 38.2) for subjective assessment of their depressive(More)
From 9 centres 293 patients took part in the WHO-collaborative study on Dexamethasone-Suppression-Test (DST) in depression to examine the relationship of psychopathological and psychiatric history information to cortisol-levels and suppression/non-suppression status.

In context with a study on tardive dyskinesia in a psychiatric clinic, two ward psychiatrists rated patients with respect to extrapyramidal dyskinetic reactions. (Age, sex, type of neuroleptic treatment and diagnosis were taken into account.) Few multiple dyskinesias have been found. When they occur at all then predominantly in the area of head and limbs;(More)
646 patients of a psychiatric clinic (272 m, 374 f) have been examined for tardive dyskinesia by two physicians, a neurologist and a psychiatrist. 192 patients exhibited some dyskinetic disturbances (32%). Thus the prevalence in this sample is rather high. The applied rating scale has proved successful (interrater reliability of .88). A year later the same(More)
