- Autistic-like symptomatology in Prader-Willi syndrome: a review of recent findingsAnastasia Dimitropoulos
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH 44106 7123, USA
Curr Psychiatry Rep 9:159-64. 2007..This paper will review the recent evidence for phenotypic similarities between autism and PWS and the risk of symptomatology for the UPD subtype...
- Expressive and receptive language in Prader-Willi syndrome: report on genetic subtype differencesAnastasia Dimitropoulos
Department of Psychological Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH 44106 7123, USA
J Commun Disord 46:193-201. 2013..Further work should also delineate findings with respect to size of the paternal deletion (Type 1 and Type 2 deletions) and explore how overexpression of maternally expressed genes in the 15q11-13 region may relate to verbal ability...
- Greater corticolimbic activation to high-calorie food cues after eating in obese vs. normal-weight adultsAnastasia Dimitropoulos
Department of Psychological Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, 11220 Bellflower Road, Mather Memorial Rm 109, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA
Appetite 58:303-12. 2012..Moreover, food cues did not elicit similar brain response after eating in the NW group suggesting that neural activity in response to food cues diminishes with reduced hunger for these individuals...
- Food-related neural circuitry in Prader-Willi syndrome: response to high- versus low-calorie foodsAnastasia Dimitropoulos
Developmental Neuroimaging Laboratory, Yale Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA
J Autism Dev Disord 38:1642-53. 2008..This suggests neural circuitry for PWS is abnormally activated during hunger, particularly for high-calorie foods, and may mediate abnormally strong hunger states, therefore playing a significant role in PWS-induced hyperphagia...
- Neural correlates to food-related behavior in normal-weight and overweight/obese participantsAlan Ho
Department of Psychological Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, United States of America
PLoS ONE 7:e45403. 2012..These findings suggest brain regions involved in the evaluation of visual food cues may be mediated by satiety-related problems, dependent on calorie content, state of satiation, and body mass index...
