- Functional anatomical study of psychogenic amnesiaF Yasuno
Department of Neuropsychiatry, Biomedical Research Center, Osaka University Medical School, 2 2 Yamadaoka, Suita, 565 0871, Osaka, Japan
Psychiatry Res 99:43-57. 2000..These findings suggest that the changes in these limbic and limbic-cortical functions are related to symptoms of the psychogenic amnesia...
- Relation among dopamine D(2) receptor binding, obesity and personality in normal human subjectsF Yasuno
Division of Advanced Technology for Medical Imaging, National Institute of Radiological Sciences, 4 9 1 Anagawa, Inage Ku, 263 8555, Chiba, Japan
Neurosci Lett 300:59-61. 2001..It can be assumed that variation of dopaminergic activity in the amygdala underlies the personality variants related to the concept of fundamental body type...
- Dopamine D2 receptors in the insular cortex and the personality trait of novelty seekingT Suhara
Division of Advanced Technology for Medical Imaging, National Institute of Radiological Sciences, Anagawa 4-Chome, Inage-ku, Chiba, 263-8555, Japan
Neuroimage 13:891-5. 2001..No significant correlation was observed in any other region. Our result indicates that there is a significant association between dopamine D2 receptor binding and the human novelty seeking trait in the right insular cortex...
- Dose relationship of limbic-cortical D2-dopamine receptor occupancy with risperidoneF Yasuno
National Institute of Radiological Sciences, Chiba shi, Japan
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 154:112-4. 2001..Risperidone has an atypical property, but its effect on limbic-cortical regions has not been evaluated...
- The neural basis of perceptual and conceptual word priming--a PET studyF Yasuno
Department of Neuropsychiatry, Osaka University Medical School, Suita, Japan
Cortex 36:59-69. 2000..Each blood flow change may reflect transient changes in the cortical areas subserving the processing of the perceptual and conceptual components of word priming...
- Age-related reduction of extrastriatal dopamine D2 receptor measured by PETM Inoue
Division of Advanced Technology for Medical Imaging, National Institute of Radiological Sciences, Chiba, Japan
Life Sci 69:1079-84. 2001..4% in parietal cortex, 12.4% in occipital cortex, 12.2% in hippocampus, and 4.8% in thalamus. These findings suggest that the amounts of D2 receptor declines in all brain regions as part of the normal aging process...
