This experimental animal study was performed in order to assess possible long-term effects of the administration of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine (Prozac) during early periods of juvenile life on the developing central serotonergic and noradrenergic systems. Fluoxetine was administered via the drinking water (5 mg/kg/day) for a(More)
An adult patient had EEG occipital spike fixation-off sensitivity and spontaneous occipital seizures due to perinatal asphyxia with bioccipital hemorrhage. EEG abnormalities consisted of repetitive posterior spikes that occurred when the eyes were closed and other conditions of fixation-off. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) documented severe posterior(More)
Recently, it has been suggested that alcohol-induced hyperhomocysteinaemia in patients suffering from chronic alcoholism might be a risk factor for alcohol withdrawal seizures. In the present follow-up study 12 patients with chronic alcoholism who suffered from withdrawal seizures had significantly higher levels of homocysteine (Hcy) on admission (71.43 +/-(More)
We investigated the correlation of hippocampal volume with homocysteine, folate, vitamin B12 and B6 in alcoholic patients and healthy controls applying a Kohonen feature map (KFM) and conventional statistics. Representation of subjects on the KFM suggested an inverse correlation of hippocampal volume with blood levels of homocysteine and correlation with(More)
