    P Murphy
    Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto, Canada
    Am J Psychiatry 157:1156-9. 2000
    ..The purpose of this research was to determine if adults can provide a true rating of their own childhood and current symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)...
  2. ncbi The ketogenic diet causes a reversible decrease in activity level in Long-Evans rats
    Patricia Murphy
    Department of Pharmacology, University of Toronto, Medical Sciences Building, 1 King s College Circle, Rm 4309, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 1A8
    Exp Neurol 201:84-9. 2006
    ..The results of Experiment 2 show that the decrease in activity level is not linked to a change in anxiety level. The ketogenic diet may be of use in the treatment of ADHD...
  3. ncbi Use of the ketogenic diet as a treatment for epilepsy refractory to drug treatment
    Patricia Murphy
    University of Toronto, Department of Pharmacology, Medical Sciences Building, 1 King s College Circle, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 1A8, Canada

    Patricia Murphy
    Department of Pharmacology, The University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M9A 4X6
    Pediatr Res 57:353-7. 2005

    Patricia Murphy
    Department of Pharmacology, The Bloorview Epilepsy Research Program and the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 1A8
    Exp Neurol 180:88-92. 2003
