The concept of "mild cognitive impairment" (MCI) refers to alterations in cognition in the transition between normal aging and dementia. However, from a neuropsychological point of view the conventional diagnostic criteria appear not sufficiently valid. In particular, it is still difficult to differentiate between subjects with MCI and subjects with depression plus cognitive deficits on the basis of their neuropsychological profiles. The aim of this study is to compare cognitive deficit ...

OBJECTIVE: Adult hypopituitary patients with growth hormone deficiency, though on adequate adrenal, thyroid or sex hormone replacement therapy, complain of attention and memory disabilities. During the past years several studies have evidenced that growth hormone (GH) may exert distinctive effects on the central nervous system and induce beneficial effects on psychological capabilities. The aim of our study was to determine whether a long-term replacement therapy of recombinant human ...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic and clinical studies suggest comorbidity between major depressive disorder (MDD) and obesity. To elucidate the impact of weight on the course of depression beyond comorbidity, we investigated psychopathology, attention, neuroendocrinology, weight change, and treatment response in MDD patients, depending on their weight.

METHODS: Four hundred eight inpatients with MDD participated in the Munich Antidepressant Response Signature Study, designed to discover ...

Sleep is frequently impaired in postmenopausal women. Progesterone prompted benzodiazepine-like effects on sleep EEG in young normal male subjects. Aim of this study was to test if treatment with progesterone improves sleep after menopause. A randomised double blind crossover design study with 2 treatment intervals of 21 days duration separated by a 2 weeks washout was performed. An oral dose of 300 mg micronized progesterone was given each for 21 days. At the beginning and the end of ...

This study was designed to determine whether patients with schizophrenia and those with affective disorders display a common pattern of cognitive deficits. Cognitive performance was assessed with a neuropsychological test battery in consecutively admitted in-patients with schizophrenia (n=100) and affective disorders (n=100). The two groups of patients showed a similar pattern of cognitive deficits, especially in tests focusing on attentional capacities. The groups only differed ...

The neurophysiological basis of practice-induced gray matter increase is unclear. To study the relationship of practice-induced gray matter changes and neural activation, we conducted a combined longitudinal functional and morphometric (voxel-based morphometry) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study on mirror reading. Compared with normal reading, mirror reading resulted in an activation of the dorsolateral occipital cortex, medial occipital cortex, superior parietal cortex, medial and ...

BACKGROUND: Dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) system and cognitive impairment are consistent findings in depression. This study examines the associations between HPA system regulation, cognitive functioning, and psychopathology in depressed inpatients on admission and at discharge.

METHODS: The HPA system dysregulation was evaluated with the dexamethasone (DEX)/corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) test. Cognitive assessment included speed of information ...

Aging is associated with dramatic reductions in sleep continuity and sleep intensity. Since gaboxadol, a selective GABAA receptor agonist, has been demonstrated to improve sleep consolidation and promote deep sleep, it may be an effective hypnotic, particularly for elderly patients with insomnia. In the present study, we investigated the effects of subchronic gaboxadol administration on nocturnal sleep and its residual effects during the next days in elderly subjects. This was a ...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive performance is often impaired in depression, and these impairments can persist even after remission from psychopathological symptoms. However, it is still unclear whether cognitive dysfunction is associated with psychopathological symptoms or represents a genuine disorder. This study examined cognitive performance in acute depression, after remission, and 6 months after remission in order to determine the nature and specificity of cognitive dysfunction as well as ...

Reading and visual exploration impairments in unilateral homonymous hemianopia are well-established clinical phenomena. Spontaneous adaptation of eye-movements to the visual field defect leads to improved reading and visual exploration performance. Yet, it is still unclear whether oculomotor adaptation to visual field loss is task-specific or whether there is a transfer of adaptation-related improvements between reading and visual exploration. We therefore simulated unilateral homonymous ...

BACKGROUND: This study addresses the complex relationship between cognitive function and the course of depression.

METHOD: A sample of patients (n=73) in a depressive episode (major depression or bipolar disorder) was tested with a comprehensive battery of attention and executive tasks at both admission and discharge. In addition, response to pharmacological treatment and remission was assessed with standardized rating scales. Nineteen patients, recovered from depression, were ...

Hemianopic reading and visual exploration impairments are well-known clinical phenomena. Yet, it is unclear whether they are primarily caused by the hemianopic visual field defect itself or by additional brain injury preventing efficient spontaneous oculomotor adaptation. To establish the extent to which these impairments are visually elicited we simulated unilateral homonymous hemianopia in healthy participants, using a gaze-contingent display paradigm, and investigated its effect on ...
