Prolactin response to the cold pressor test in patients with panic attacks
Recent advances in psychiatric nosology have provided a clearer clinical description of panic disorder and agoraphobia with panic attacks. This clinical improvement has yet to result in a better understanding of the basic ...
Neurobiology of panic disorder: From animal models to brain neuroimaging
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
Evidence from animal models of anxiety has led to the hypothesis that serotonin enhances inhibitory avoidance (related to anxiety) in the forebrain, but inhibits one-way escape (panic) in the midbrain periaqueductal gray ...
Burden and Distress in Caregivers of Patients With Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2017-01-01)
We estimated the prevalence, severity, and correlates of burden and distress in caregivers of patients with panic disorder and agoraphobia. The instruments used in this cross-sectional study with 40 caregivers and 40 ...

Cholesterol levels in panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and major depression

New perspective on the pathophysiology of panic: merging serotonin and opioids in the periaqueductal gray
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2012)
Panic disorder patients are vulnerable to recurrent panic attacks. Two neurochemical hypotheses have been proposed to explain this susceptibility. The first assumes that panic patients have deficient serotonergic inhibition ...
Respiratory manifestations of panic disorder in animals and humans: A unique opportunity to understand how supramedullary structures regulate breathing
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-12-01)
The control of breathing is commonly viewed as being a "brainstem affair". As the topic of this special issue of Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology indicates, we should consider broadening this notion since the act ...
(1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging of the hippocampus in patients with panic disorder
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2010)
Recent theories of panic disorder propose an extensive involvement of limbic system structures, such as the hippocampus, in the pathophysiology of this condition. Despite this, no prior study has examined exclusively the ...
