2) Imipramine and MAOI are equally effective in treating severe depression--

Possibly true... MAOIs are possibly more effective in  patients with atypical symptoms

4)Amitriptyline in old age is associated with decreased REM Sleep--

TRUE... Tricyclics decrease REM sleep ; as a corllary, there is an increase in REM sleep in depression, hence the vivid nightmares described by some of our patients...

6) Angleman's syndrome causes EEG changes by the age of 1 year--

TRUE...
