Visual event-related potentials (ERPs) of primary interest in this study of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were N1, N2, P2, and P3. Forty Israeli combat veterans consisting of 20 PTSD sufferers and 20 normal controls were evaluated. ERPs were recorded in response to three sets of computer-generated visual stimuli, presented in the form of a modified(More)
A lattice definition of QCD based on chiral defect fermions is discussed in detail. This formulation involves (infinitely) many heavy regulator fields, realized through the introduction of an unphysical fifth dimension. It is proved that non-singlet axial symmetries become exact in the limit of an infinite fifth dimension, and before the continuum limit is(More)
BACKGROUND Catheter-based therapeutic ultrasound thrombolysis was recently shown to be effective and safe. The purpose of this work was to study the safety and efficacy of external high-intensity focused ultrasound thrombolysis guided by ultrasound imaging in experimental settings. METHODS AND RESULTS A therapeutic transducer was constructed from an(More)
The association between audiometric hearing thresholds and click-evoked otoacoustic emission (CEOAE) spectral properties was examined in 129 adult subjects with and without a noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Subjects were grouped according to their "beginning of hearing loss frequency" and their exposure to hazardous noise. Emissions were recorded with an(More)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) patients are characterized by a hypersensitivity to traumatic stimuli which may be expressed as an automatic and involuntary cognitive response. Electrophysiologically this can be recorded as an augmented visual P3 (P300) event related potential (ERP). This study examined P3 changes in response to repeated traumatic(More)
BACKGROUND The consistent association of impaired eye movements and schizophrenia suggests a relationship between the neurobiology of the illness and visual pursuit systems. Visual fixation (VF), an eye "movement" task at zero velocity, is the simplest such abnormality in schizophrenia patients and their relatives. METHODS We used a VF task for a(More)
This study demonstrates a clear relationship between noise induced tinnitus (NIT) and efferent neural auditory activity. The effect of contralateral white noise stimulation on click evoked otoacoustic emissions (CEOAEs) was studied in chronic tinnitus sufferers and controls, with and without a noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). For the non-tinnitus(More)
It was previously demonstrated that noise induced tinnitus (NIT) patients have prolonged reaction times and event related potentials (ERPs) that are reduced in amplitude and prolonged in latency. This study considered whether these alterations occurred as a consequence of the competing auditory tinnitus sensation or as a result of a possible cognitive(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to confirm that the brain processing of auditory stimuli in tinnitus patients is impaired (Attias, Urbach, Gold, & Shemesh, 1993). In addition, possible brain processing dysfunction in response to visual stimuli was assessed. DESIGN Auditory and visual event-related potentials (ERPs) and reaction times were recorded in response(More)
