Test-retest variability of adenosine A2A binding in the human brain with 11C-TMSX and PET

Background The goal of the present study was to evaluate the reproducibility of cerebral adenosine A2A receptor (A2AR) quantification using 11C-TMSX and PET in a test-retest study. Methods Five healthy volunteers were studied twice. The test-retest variability was assessed for distribution volume (VT) and binding potential relative to non-displaceable uptake (BPND) based on...

Neural Substrates for Semantic Memory of Familiar Songs: Is There an Interface between Lyrics and Melodies?

Findings on song perception and song production have increasingly suggested that common but partially distinct neural networks exist for processing lyrics and melody. However, the neural substrates of song recognition remain to be investigated. The purpose of this study was to examine the neural substrates involved in the accessing “song lexicon” as corresponding to a...

Binding of Pramipexole to Extrastriatal Dopamine D2/D3 Receptors in the Human Brain: A Positron Emission Tomography Study Using 11C-FLB 457

The purpose of this study was to determine the binding sites of pramipexole in extrastriatal dopaminergic regions because its antidepressive effects have been speculated to occur by activating the dopamine D2 receptor subfamily in extrastriatal areas. Dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) scanning using 11C-FLB 457 for quantification of D2/D3 receptor subtype was performed...

Adenosine A2A Receptors Measured with [11C]TMSX PET in the Striata of Parkinson's Disease Patients

Adenosine A2A receptors (A2ARs) are thought to interact negatively with the dopamine D2 receptor (D2R), so selective A2AR antagonists have attracted attention as novel treatments for Parkinson's disease (PD). However, no information about the receptor in living patients with PD is available. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between A2ARs and the...
