A common neural system mediating two different forms of social judgement

Background. A wide range of neuropsychiatric conditions, including schizophrenia and autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), are associated with impairments in social function. Previous studies have shown that individuals with schizophrenia and ASD have deficits in making a wide range of social judgements from faces, including decisions related to threat (such as judgements of approachability) and decisions ...

A communication support system for older people with dementia

CIRCA lets those with short-term memory loss draw on reminiscences to converse with relatives and caregivers. The system, which software engineers, psychologists, and designers developed with caregiver input, features a touch screen that displays photos, music, video, text, and other materials to help those with dementia access long-term memory.

A comparison of signal instability in 2D and 3D EPI resting-state fMRI

Spatiotemporally structured noise, such as physiological noise, is a potential source of artifacts in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and is the main limiting factor for the detection of small blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal variations. fMRI was employed to detect low-frequency BOLD signal fluctuations. which are thought to be related to spontaneous neuronal activity in the ...

A DFT study on the origin of the fluorine gauche effect in substituted fluoroethanes

DFT derived conformational energy profiles of a series of beta-substituted alpha-fluoroethanes (F-CH2CH2-X) have been explored where the substituent X was varied as NH3+, OCOH, NCO, NO2, NHCHO, F, N-3, CH=NH, NCS, CH=C=CH2, CH3, CH=CH2, NC, CN, CHO, and CCH Comparisons were correlated relative to 1,2-difluoroethane. a compound which exhibits a well known gauche preference Only four of the compounds ...

A diffusion tensor MRI study of white matter integrity in subjects at high genetic risk of schizophrenia

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has previously shown compromised white matter integrity in frontotemporal white matter fibers in patients with schizophrenia, as indicated by reduced fractional anisotropy (FA). In the present study we investigated whether reduced white matter FA is also present in relatives of individuals with schizophrenia who are at high risk (HR) for genetic reasons. Twenty-two HR ...

A digital phantom of the axilla based on the visible human project data set

In this paper, we describe the development of a new digital phantom designed for Monte Carlo simulations of breast cancer and particularly positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of the axillary lymph nodes. The phantom was based on data from the Visible Human Project female data set. The phantom covers the head-to-diaphragm regions; 17 major tissue types were segmented and 66 individual lymph nodes ...

A dual echo approach to motion correction for functional connectivity studies

The effect of subject head movement on functional connectivity as measured by BOLD (blood oxygen level dependent) fMRI was investigated; movement mainly introduced increases in connectivity into the dataset. The effect of movement on connectivity is an important consideration when comparing patients suffering from neurological conditions to healthy controls, since it is well known that patients affected ...
