Six depressed patients with schizophrenia and 6 depressed patients with major depression were investigated before and during somatosensory stimulation (SS) with Tc-99m HMPAO SPECT. 8 controls were investigated only under resting conditions. The results can be summarized as follows: 1. Both psychiatric patient groups were hypofrontal (dorsolateral prefrontal(More)
The effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on schizophrenic negative symptoms (NS) and EEG topography were investigated in this pilot study. 10 patients with predominant NS were treated with 10 Hz rTMS over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex for 5 days. For NS ratings, the Scale for the Assessment of Negative Symptoms (SANS) was(More)
Eighteen patients with refractory depression (dysthymia with superimposed major depression) were treated with a combination of fluvoxamine and moclobemide for 6 weeks and compared with 18 patients treated with fluvoxamine only. Both groups had improved only slightly after 8 weeks of TCA treatment and 6 weeks of SSRI treatment. Two main observations can be(More)
Antibodies against the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in sera of 21 myasthenia gravis patients were checked for their ability to block or split binding of alpha-bungarotoxin to the human acetylcholine receptor. Affinity-purified acetylcholine receptors from human skeletal muscle were used in parallel in the common precipitation assay and an inhibition(More)
