Haloperidol and clozapine have been widely used to alleviate schizophrenic symptoms, but their physiological effects in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) are not known. Effects of haloperidol and clozapine on single unit activity were investigated in the medial PFC of anesthetized rats. Injection (intraperitoneal) of haloperidol (1 mg/kg) or clozapine (20 mg/kg)(More)
We examined patterns and mechanisms of cell death induced by haloperidol. Cortical cell cultures exposed to 10-100 microM: haloperidol for 24 h underwent neuronal death without injuring glia. The degenerating neurons showed hallmarks of apoptosis, featuring cell body shrinkage, nuclear chromatin condensation and aggregation, nuclear membrane disintegration(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate predictors of adolescence suicidality in a longitudinal study. Additionally, the prevalence of deliberate self-harm behavior and suicide ideation at age 7 and during middle school were examined. Initial assessment data was obtained from 1998 to 2000, and a follow-up assessment was performed in 2006 when the original(More)
Our study aimed to examine the relationship between perceived sleep quality and depression using Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Cole's model to materialize the concept of perceived sleep quality in the non-cognitively impaired elderly. Older adults aged 60+ were recruited from the baseline study of Suwon Project (SP) between 2009 and 2011(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Heat shock proteins (HSPs) have been regarded as cytoprotectants that protect brain cells during the progression of neurodegenerative diseases and from damage resulting from cerebral ischemia. In this study, we assessed the association between plasma HSP 70/27 levels and cognitive decline. METHODS Among participants in the(More)
The effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) on several types of neuronal injury in mouse cortical cell cultures were tested. Co-treatment with 5-HT prevented free radical-mediated neuronal necrosis induced by FeCl2 or buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) in a dose-dependent manner. Subtype antagonists did not reverse the protective effect and 5-HT showed direct free(More)
This study prospectively examined the relationships among cognitive factors and severity of Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in female victims of sexual violence. Thirty-eight victims of sexual violence recruited from Center for Women Victims of Sexual and Domestic Violence at Ajou University Hospital. Cognitive factors and PTSD symptom were(More)
To determine the association between frontal lobe function and risk of hip fracture in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD).Retrospective cohort study using multicenter hospital-based dementia registry and national health insurance claim data was done. Participants who had available data of neuropsychological test, national health insurance claim, and other(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to examine differential effects of WMH on progression of depressive symptoms according to APOE ε4 status in the elderly. METHODS We obtained data from elderly Korean subjects (n=707) aged 60 years or older at baseline from the CREDOS study from November 2005 to July 2014. A linear mixed model stratified according to APOE genotype (APOE(More)
