Abstract: The effects of new thienodiazepine anxiolytics, etlzolam and clotiazepam, on the appearance of frontal midline theta activity (Fm θ) were studied by the double‐blind crossover method. The results were 88 follows: 1) Both clotiazepam and placebo tended to increase the Fm θ appearance in all subjects, but etlzolam showed no such tendency. 2) Clotlazepaam significantly increased the Fm θ appearance as compared with placebo in subjects with a high neurotic tendency (N‐scale of MPI above… Expand

Frontal-midline theta from the perspective of hippocampal “theta”
The hippocampal "theta rhythm" has been extensively studied in rats and its rhythmicity has recently been shown to be functionally significant, per se, and relevant aspects of the hippocampal literature are used to provide perspective on one of the most studied human EEG rhythms: frontal-midline theta.

Frontal midline theta activity and platelet MAO in human subjects
A negative correlation between the appearance of Fm theta and platelet MAO activity is found and it is suggested that FmTheta, an electrophysiological marker, may be useful in the investigation of monoamine functions in the central nervous system (CNS) by way of plateletMAO activity, a biochemical marker.

Factor analysis of the EEG band scores proved that each σ-, α-, β1- and β2-band component of EEG was of one-factor structure, all the correlation coefficients being approximately +0.9 at each. Expand
Periodic appearance of theta rhythm in the frontal midline area during performance of a mental task.
The results suggest that appearance of Fm theta shows individual differences and there might exist some periodicity of an attention mechanism in certain subjects. Expand
