The Psychotomimetic Effects of Intravenous Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Healthy Individuals: Implications for Psychosis
TLDR
It is indicated that Δ-9-THC produces a broad range of transient symptoms, behaviors, and cognitive deficits in healthy individuals that resemble some aspects of endogenous psychoses and warrant further study of whether brain cannabinoid receptor function contributes to the pathophysiology of psychotic disorders.
Subtype-specific alterations of gamma-aminobutyric acid and glutamate in patients with major depression.
TLDR
The study replicates the findings of decreased GABA concentrations in the occipital cortex of subjects with MDD and demonstrates that there is a change in the ratio of excitatory-inhibitory neurotransmitter levels in the cortex of depressed subjects that may be related to altered brain function.
Riluzole Augmentation in Treatment-Resistant Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder: An Open-Label Trial
TLDR
Riluzole appears to have significant antiobsessional, antidepressant, and antianxiety properties, and the addition of this agent may be of practical clinical benefit in patients with OCD.
Activation of the hypothalamus characterizes the acupuncture stimulation at the analgesic point in human: a positron emission tomography study
TLDR
The data suggested that the hypothalamus might characterize the central expression of acupuncture stimulation at the classical analgesic point and serve as one key element in mediating analgesic efficacy ofupuncture stimulation.
Frequency effects of Chinese character processing in the brain: an event-related fMRI study
TLDR
By uncovering the differential brain responses in reading Chinese characters of different occurrence frequencies, a substantial overlap between functional neuroanatomy of reading Chinese and alphabetical languages been demonstrated, but also features permitting the separation of language-specific content from universal mechanisms are uncovered.
Temporoparietal Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Auditory Hallucinations: Safety, Efficacy and Moderators in a Fifty Patient Sample
TLDR
Left temporoparietal 1-hertz rTMS warrants further study as an intervention for auditory hallucinations and data suggest that this intervention selectively alters neurobiological factors determining frequency of these hallucinations.
Implementation of Pipelined FastICA on FPGA for Real-Time Blind Source Separation
TLDR
This paper implements the FastICA algorithm in a field-programmable gate array (FPGA), with the ability of real-time sequential mixed signals processing by the proposed pipelined FastICA architecture, and demonstrates the effectiveness of the presented hardware FastICA as expected.
Brain morphological changes associated with cyclic menstrual pain
TLDR
It is demonstrated that abnormal GM volume changes are present in PDM patients even in the absence of pain, highlighting that longer lasting central changes may occur not only in sustained chronic pain conditions but also in cyclic occurring pain conditions.
Neuronal correlates of consistency and frequency effects on Chinese character naming: an event-related fMRI study
TLDR
The regions involved in Chinese OPT are congruent with the findings for reading alphabetic scripts and indicate that the neuronal mechanisms for orthography-to-phonology transformation is domain universal across different writing systems.
Event-Related Functional MRI Study on Central Representation of Acute Muscle Pain Induced by Electrical Stimulation
TLDR
The aims of the study were to establish the pain matrix for muscle pain in the full head volume and to explore the possibility of a functional segregation to nonpainful and painful stimuli within the area of the parasylvian cortex corresponding to the secondary somatosensory area.
