Set shifting and central coherence as neurocognitive endophenotypes in eating disorders: a preliminary investigation in twins.
Weak central coherence and poor set shifting are risk markers for eating disorders that are present post recovery and in first degree relatives. The aim of this study was to examine these traits in twins with eating disorders. Neuropsychological tests were administered to 114 female twins (n = 53 me...
A cardiopulmonary study of lisdexamfetamine in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
We found significant mean changes in resting LV systolic dimension and Doppler diastolic indices. Change in heart rate recovery at 1 min met statistical significance (P = 0.05). Conclusions. We did not detect clinically meaningful changes in cardiac structure and function or in metabolic and ventila...

Atrophy outcomes in multicentre clinical trials on Alzheimer's disease: effect of different processing and analysis approaches on sample siz...
We used a longitudinal MRI data set of total brain and cortical grey matter volumes from 66 patients with AD recruited across seven centres of the German Dementia Competence Network. We compared effect size estimates for the detection of a 25% reduction of atrophy progression between a priori segmen...

Flow rates and inorganic composition of whole saliva in purging bulimic patients treated with a fluoxetine.
Abstract Objectives. The current study established whether vomiting bulimic and/or non-bulimic depressive patients, both treated with a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (fluoxetine), have changes in their whole salivary secretion and inorganic components: Na(+), K(+), Ca(2+). Methods. Fr...
Smooth pursuit and visual scanpaths: Independence of two candidate oculomotor risk markers for schizophrenia.
Regulation of immune-modulatory genes in left superior temporal cortex of schizophrenia patients: a genome-wide microarray study.
We hypothesize that dysregulation of immune-related genes modifies synaptic functions and stability in this region....
Modular networks involving the medial frontal cortex: towards the development of neuropsychiatry.
We propose that the identification of abnormalities in brain modular networks will provide a promising approach for the understanding of mental disorders. Methods. We review the current discussion on the neuroscientific basis of psychiatric diseases and review recent studies in functional neuroimagi...
The safety and tolerability of clozapine in aged patients: a retrospective clinical file review.
Abstract Objectives. A clinical file review was conducted of clozapine use in three aged psychiatry services in Melbourne, Australia, to compare its safety and tolerability with findings reported in the literature. Methods. The review period spanned the intervals from 2008 to the ser...
