- Planum temporale asymmetry to the right hemisphere in first-episode schizophreniaAlkomiet Hasan
Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Georg August University, Von Siebold Street 5, 37075 Goettingen, Germany
Psychiatry Res 193:56-9. 2011..We investigated planum temporale (PT) volume and asymmetry in 23 first-episode schizophrenia patients compared to healthy controls and found for the first time an in vivo volume asymmetry of PT to the right hemisphere...
- Dysfunctional long-term potentiation-like plasticity in schizophrenia revealed by transcranial direct current stimulationAlkomiet Hasan
Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Georg August University, Von Siebold Strasse 5, D 37075, Goettingen, Germany
Behav Brain Res 224:15-22. 2011..Disturbances of N-methyl-d-aspartate, gamma-aminobutyric acid and dopamine receptors may account for this plasticity deficit. LTP-like plasticity deficits might be related to disturbed information processing in schizophrenia patients...
