MMN: Frequency deviant vs. Duration deviant

本研究室自2009年2月28日起嘗試試用MMN2 paradigm (Both Duration and Frequency MMN are acquired in the same session)      自2010年3月1日起恢復duration MMN paradigm(但兒童個案仍用MMN2 paradigm)

1257~1333; 3261~3335

以下各篇都是同一個研究有做Frequency deviant vs. Duration deviant

Symptom dimensions of schizophrenia



很多文獻認定PANSS的P-N-G三個總分不夠好:那麼,應當如何看PANSS的Symptom dimensions呢?

話說從頭:1990年,PANSS的作者Stanley Kay在Schizophrenia Bulletin  16(3):537-545上的大作Pyramidical Model of Schizophrenia (繼續閱讀…)


日本東京大學  笠井清登Kiyoto Kasai研究團隊最新力作Preattentive dysfunction in bipolar disorder: A MEG study using auditory mismatch negativity.  Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry 2010

1999 Schizophrenia Research [Impaired sensory processing in male patients with schizophrenia: a magnetoencephalographic study of auditory mismatch detection]

The generation of mismatch negativity (MMN) as a component of auditory evoked event-related brain potentials has been reported previously to be severely disturbed in patients with schizophrenia. In the present study, we extended these findings to magnetoencephalography and investigated the neuromagnetic mismatch field (MMNm) in 15 male schizophrenic inpatients as compared to 16 healthy male volunteers. A standard tone of 1000 Hz and three different types of mismatch (1050-Hz tone, 5000-Hz tone, tone omission) were employed within the same paradigm, each mismatch occurring with a 10% pseudorandom probability. After correction for eye artifacts, the mean global field power of the mismatch reaction was calculated. Mismatch generation in patients with schizophrenia proved to be significantly impaired for all three conditions. This result confirms the theory of impaired auditory information processing in patients with schizophrenia at the level of the primary auditory cortex. Deficient generation of MMNm probably represents an impaired generation and/or faster decay of the sensory memory trace on the basis of disturbed sensory processing in male patients with schizophrenia.
