2. an intericatal eeg in automatisms is of limited value

3. Restriction fragment length polymorphism are inherited in mendelian fashion

4. autism has a 90% concordance rate for MZ

(and while u're at it - what about for DZ?)

5. linkage analysis can be used to study genetic disorders in families

6. heteroreceptors decrease neurotransmitter release through presynaptic mechanisms

7. acetyl choline esterase inhibitors kead to cognitive improvement in 60% of cases o mild Alzh disease

8. in the study of communication methods, telephone conversations are assoc with longer utterances than face to face interactions

9. a similarity between impaired cognition in old age and alzheimers disease is impaired visuospatial scratch pad

10 LSD is assoc with withdrawl delirium

11. if panic disorder is treated with ssris there is a 40% recurrence rate on stopping the medication

12. in treatment of anorexic patients with severe weight loss, initial weight gain is assoc with cognitive improvement

17. acth is raised in depression

18. life events affect people from lower social class more than those of middle class

19. cocaine use is assoc with somatisation

20. T4 is raised in anorexia nervosa

21. peripheral cck release reduces satiety

22. after gradual reduction of neurolpetics in LD, further medication is usually needed

STAT TESTS

a anova

b chi squared test

c friedman test

d logistic regression

e mann whitney

f mcnemar

g Multiple regression

I paired t test

J t test

K Wilcoxon Test

MOST APPROP TEST FOR

1. comparing categorical data between 2 groups (choose 2)

2. Comparing parametic data between 2 indept samples (choose 1)

3. Test to rule out effect of confounders
