    British Journal of Psychiatry 174:196 (1999) PMID 10448443

    We hypothesise that the pathophysiology of schizophrenia lies in integrative circuits of basal ganglia, thalamus and frontal cortex. Fruitful research directions would include elucidation of CD-FF circuits at even higher brain levels, the behaviour of these circuits during dreaming, and their respon...
  2. The treatment of negative symptoms: a clinical and methodological study.

    International Clinical Psychopharmacology 14(2):101 (1999) PMID 10220125

    The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of remoxipride (controlled release) versus haloperidol in patients with negative symptoms. The study comprised a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, parallel-group clinical trial. Two hundred...
  3. The relationship between symptoms and insight in schizophrenia: a longitudinal perspective.

    Schizophrenia Research 33(1-2):63 (1998) PMID 9783345

    It has been suggested that deficits in symptom awareness and attribution in schizophrenia are relatively independent of core symptoms of the disorder. Many studies report conflicting findings, however, which may be explained by differences in study design and target population. In this study 33 indi...

    American Journal of Psychiatry 155(9):1303; author reply 1303 (1998) PMID 9734567

    Journal of Abnormal Psychology (1906) 107(3):390 (1998) PMID 9715574

    In this study, sustained, selective, divided, and switching attention, and reloading of working memory were investigated in schizophrenia by using a newly developed Visual Attention Battery (VAB). Twenty-four outpatients with schizophrenia and 24 control participants were studied usi...
  6. Living with schizophrenia: caring for a person with a severe mental illness.

    Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology 33(7):305 (1998) PMID 9689892

    Data from a survey of a total population of patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder were used to examine the relationship between patient behaviours and the experience of caregiving. Carers were more distressed by depressed behaviours in the patient than any other type of behaviour,...
  7. Global functioning of inpatients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, and major depression.

    Psychiatric Services 49(3):379 (1998) PMID 9525801

    A chart review was conducted to compare the social, occupational, and daily functioning of 17 inpatients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, 17 with major depression, and 17 with schizophrenia. Current Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) scores of patients with schizophrenia were significantly lo...

    Schizophrenia Bulletin 24(4):559 (1998) PMID 9853789

    The aim of the study was to compare the quality of life (QOL) and needs of people with schizophrenia in comprehensive treatment systems in two countries. One hundred people with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder were randomly selected from the caseload of a community mental health center in...
  9. [Psychopathological study on "hallucination of soliloquy" in a case of schizophrenia].

    Seishin shinkeigaku zasshi = Psychiatria et neu... 100(4):225 (1998) PMID 9637895

    We present what appears to be the first reported case of schizophrenia with hallucinatory soliloquy. An appropriate name for this symptom might be "hallucination of soliloquy." A thirty-year-old man had been laboring under delusions of persecution and auditory hallucinations in the form of being bla...
  10. Treatment and outcomes in adolescents with schizophrenia.

    Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 59 Suppl 1:50 (1998) PMID 9448669

    The pharmacologic treatment and assessment of outcomes in adolescents with schizophrenia have been inadequately addressed. Structural brain imaging and brain function studies both point to a continuity between adolescent and adult stages of schizophrenia. Because the teenage population seems to be l...
