... A 'schizophrenic number' also known as 'mock rational number' is an irrational number that displays certain characteristics of rational number s. Definition History See also References External links. The definition of schizophrenic numbers is given in ' The Universal Book of Mathematics ' as:. :'An informal name for an irrational number that displays such persistent patterns in its decimal expansion, that it has the appearance of a rational number. A schizophrenic number can be obtained as follows. For any positive integer n let f n denote the integer given by the recurrence f n = 10 f n − 1 + n with the initial value f 0 = 0. The square roots of f n for odd integers n give rise to a curious mixture appearing to be rational for periods, and then disintegrating into irrationality. This is illustrated by the first 500 digits of :'. :'The repeating strings become progressively shorter and the scrabbled strings become larger until eventually the repeating strings disappear. However, by increasing n we can f...

... Article Gray matter deficits in young onset schizophrenia are independent of age of onset. Impact Factor: 10.26. Brain magnetic resonance imaging MRI scans were acquired in 57 men with schizophrenia, whose age at MRI was 19-53 years, and whose symptom onset ranged from age 7 to 29 years; all were inpatients in a state hospital. The schizophrenic patients had larger volumes of cortical and ventricular CSF and smaller volumes of cortical GM but not WM than age-matched controls, whether or not volumes were adjusted for head size and age norms. "However, conventional MRI findings in earlier studies for cerebral white matter volume in schizophrenia have been mixed. Some of them found no differences in white matter volume between schizophrenic patients and normal subjects, while some reported white matter reductions in schizophrenia. In this paper, we will briefly review some of recent human studies showing white matter abnormalities in schizophrenic brains and altered oligodendrocyte- OL- and myelin-related g...

The 114 who were considered to be at "high-risk" for developing schizophrenia were both shorter and lighter at birth than the control children. The height difference was statistically significant at birth for the girls. The girls that were at high-risk for psychosis eventually caught up in height with the controls at the age of 7 years old.

Most people with the variation, known as a polymorphism, do not have the disease. A University of Iowa Health Care study reveals a good prognosis for people who do have this form of schizophrenia. The team also found that this polymorphism is associated with overall benefits for human survival, and the initial mutation occurred in a single common ancestor about 100,000 years ago. The findings have implications for finding better ways to treat this particular type of schizophrenia and possibly augmenting the positive influences of the polymorphism on human survival.

The disorder can be triggered and exacerbated by social and environmental factors, with episodes becoming more apparent in periods of high stress. It is rare for a child to be diagnosed with schizophrenia, in part because of the difficulty in establishing what erroneous thoughts and beliefs can be attributed to childhood development and which thoughts and beliefs can be attributed to schizophrenia. Schizophrenia and religious delusions. The relationship between religion and schizophrenia is of particular interest to psychologist s because of the similarities between religious experience s and psychotic episodes ; religious experiences often involve auditory and/or visual hallucination s, and those with schizophrenia commonly report similar hallucinations, along with a variety of delusions and faulty beliefs.

Schizophrenia Diagnosis A new study from Edinburgh University says that people in high-risk categories for schizophrenia who go on to develop the disease show subtle early warning signs that distinguish them from others in their group. Such eary symptoms were subtle in nature, tending not to be debilitating to daily life. However, researchers say that even these small indicators can be identified using behavioural tests. Another important finding of the study is that many more people are genetically at-risk for schizophrenia than the actual number who will eventually develop the illness. Out of the 163 at-risk subjects identified based on their genetic susceptibility, only 20 eventually developed schizophrenia. Based on the early symptoms of those who actually develop schizophrenia, the scientists believe that the basis of schizoph...

... Age of onset. Gender differences have been observed in the age of onset of schizophrenia. In fact, the first onset of schizophrenia for men occurs around the ages of 20 to 25, while in women the first onset generally occurs between the ages of 25 to 30 years. They found that the mean age for onset in men was 30, while in women it was 39. All of this information is consistent with other studies showing that women have a later age of onset of schizophrenia and suffer more from severe positive symptoms rather than negative symptoms. Not only do women show fewer negative symptoms, but they respond better to antipsychotics. Estrogen and dopamine. This would explain why women have peak in the onset of schizophrenia in their late forties since at this time estrogen levels drop in women, causing the dopamine to increase, resulting in psychotic symptoms.

Age-Related Decline in IQ Linked to Schizophrenia Risk By Traci Pedersen ~ 1 min read. A person who is at greater risk for developing schizophrenia is more likely to experience a decline in IQ with age. This may happen even if the person does not go on to develop the disorder, say scientists at the University of Edinburgh. Using genetic analysis techniques, the researchers compared the IQ scores of more than 1,000 people from Edinburgh. The participants were tested for general cognitive functions in 1947, at age 11, and again when they were about 70 years old. Then the researchers compared the IQ scores of people with a high risk of developing schizophrenia to the scores of those with a low risk for the disorder. The researchers ...

Auditory hallucinations are one of the most common symptoms associated with schizophrenia. So what happens when patients with schizophrenia hear a real voice and a hallucinatory one at the same time. These studies focused either on spontaneous inner-voice triggered neural activation in subjects with schizophrenia or the stimulatory reaction prompted by actual sounds in both healthy and schizophrenic subjects. It emerged that many researchers had observed either that a spontaneous activation of neurons occurs in patients hearing inner voices or that the patients' perception of actual voices becomes suppressed when these are heard simultaneously with inner voices. The neurons become 'preoccupied' and can't 'process' voices from the outside, explains Professor Hugdahl. The voices are still there, but the test subjects feel that they have control over the voices instead of the other way around....

Signs and symptoms Diagnosis Cause Genetic. The signs and symptoms of childhood schizophrenia are nearly the same as adult-onset schizophrenia.

Many children with auditory hallucinations believe that if they do not listen to the voices, the voices will harm them or someone else. The same criteria are used to diagnose children and adults, but diagnosis of children is more challenging. Some symptoms that may be looked at are early language delays, early mo...

Although SMRs among patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder fell significantly after excluding avoidable deaths, they remained significantly elevated, at 2.38 and 1.66, respectively.

Catastrophic schizophrenia was thought to be the most severe subtype of schizophrenia, as it had "an acute onset and rapid decline into a chronic state without remission". 4 The term "catastrophic schizophrenia" has fallen out of use due to a number of reasons, including advances in psychiatric treatment, which led to a significant decline in patients that fit the diagnosis as their symptoms did not reach the severity of catastrophic schizophrenia, along with modern refinement of the definition and subtypes of schizophrenia. In modern terms, catastrophic schizophrenia would likely be defined as 'acute-onset chronic schizophrenia with poor prognosis'.

Home » Knowledge » Schizophrenia and Violence. Schizophrenia and Violence Posted on Mar 10, 2013 in Knowledge. Â As it turns out, there is some support for the idea that schizophrenics are more violent than the general public. Â The question must be, “How much more violent are schizophrenics than the general public?” Â What is the true relationship between schizophrenia and violence. The Truth Concerning Schizophrenia and Violence. Â As stated above, the underlying assumption by the public is that people suffering with schizophrenia are more violent than members of the general public for whatever reason that may be, including psychosis, fear and paranoia, an increased perception of danger and the need to defend themselves, etc. If we consider the results of the research above, saying that 10% is the high threshold for violence in schizophrenics but that the true number fluctuates somewhere lower, then that still seems astounding. Â But remove the incidence of violence in the general public, which takes into a...

Professional Services Partners The ABCs of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Schizophrenia By Lars Hansen MD, David Kingdon, MD, and Douglas Turkington, MD~ 10 min read. Cognitive-behavioral therapy CBT in schizophrenia was originally developed to provide additional treatment for residual symptoms, drawing on the principles and intervention strategies previously developed for anxiety and depression. The evidence for the efficacy of CBT in treating patients with persistent symptoms of schizophrenia has progressed from case studies, case series, and uncontrolled trials to methodologically rigorous, randomized, controlled trials that include patients from both the acute 4 and the chronic end of the schizophrenia spectrum. PROCEDURE The therapeutic techniques used for patients with schizophrenia are based on the general principles of CBT. EVIDENCE The general fi...

Search Comments. Published online October 3 in Nature Genetics, the study undertakes the largest hunt yet for “de novo” mutations in the protein-coding exomes of 231 cases of schizophrenia and 34 controls. So far, exome sequencing has turned up a scattering of de novo variants in people with schizophrenia, which outnumber those in controls and localize to a diverse group of genes see SRF related news story and SRF news story. This has been made tricky by the discovery of similar rare variants in healthy people: For example, the de novo mutation rate in the exome in people with autism is similar to that of their unaffected siblings see SRF related news story. This conundrum dogs any kind of rare event, de novo or not: Another recent exome sequencing study did not find that moderately rare variants found in schizophrenia cases occurred more frequently than in controls see SRF related news story.

New York, NY PRWEB July 22, 2014 As part of a multinational, collaborative effort, researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have helped identify over 100 locations in the human genome associated with the risk of developing schizophrenia, in the largest genomic study published on any psychiatric disorder to date, conducted with 80,000 people. Without these efforts it would have been impossible to gather and analyze DNA data from enough people with and without schizophrenia,” said Pamela Sklar, MD, PhD, co-author of the study, Chief of the Division of Psychiatric Genomics and Professor of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. ‘The wealth of new findings have the potential to kick-start the development of new treatments in schizophrenia, a process which has stalled for the last 60 years.” The study is the result of several yea...

Schizophrenia Personal Story New Film from the BBC on schizophrenia - "LOVING CHRISTIAN" This month sees the broadcast of a "fly-on-the-wall"; documentary about what it's like for a family to live with schizophrenia. Georgina says she had no hesitation in putting them forward: "I hate the thought of seeing myself on the television because I am overweight, but it's the passion I've got about mental illness and the difference it makes to people s attitudes to you." If the people with personal experience won't speak out about it, public attitudes will never change, she believes. Then we had these letters in the press saying We don't want people with mental illness around here". If you don't show how difficult it is, you have no programme. But otherwise things are very difficult for him and it's very difficult for his family to see that on tv. It can get to a point where programme makers say "How do we portray mental illness if you don't let us film someone experiencing it?" What we are always crucially aware of ...

Schizophrenia makes it difficult for sufferers to distinguish hallucinations from reality. Schizophrenia often leads to or is triggered by substance abuse. Adderall use can lead to addiction, and this drug use and abuse may be closely related to schizophrenia. Can Adderall Use Cause Schizophrenia. Abusing any substance can worsen mental health issues such as depression or anxiety. If someone has a family history of either substance abuse or a mental health issue, he or she is at greater risk for addiction and schizophrenia. Age and environmental factors can trigger schizophrenia symptoms in predisposed individuals. Adderall use has been linked to both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Excess Body Weight of a Mother during pregnancy above normal healthy pregnancy rates is associated with a higher risk of child's development of schizophrenia. Supporting Scientific Evidence. Helpful Actions. Excess body weight which is typically linked to poor dietary habits in a pregnant mother has been linked with increased likelihood of the child developing schizophrenia. In a recent research report, scientists found a 24% increase in the risk of the child developing schizophrenia for every a one-unit increase of BMI Body Mass Index measurement during early pregnancy, and a 19% increase during late pregnancy.

This is in contrast to a categorical view of psychosis, where psychosis is considered to be a particular (usually pathological) state, that someone either has, or has not.Bicameralism (psychology): Bicameralism (the philosophy of "two-chamberedness") is a hypothesis in psychology that argues that the human mind once assumed a state in which cognitive functions were divided between one part of the brain which appears to be "speaking", and a second part which listens and obeys—a bicameral mind. The term was coined by Julian Jaynes, who presented the idea in his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, wherein he made the case that a bicameral mentality came to be the normal and ubiquitous state of the human mind until as recently as 3000 years ago.Psychotic depression: Psychotic depression, also known as depressive psychosis, is a major depressive episode that is accompanied by psychotic symptoms.Hales E and Yudofsky JA, eds, The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry, Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.Nathan Raw: Lieutenant-Colonel Nathan Raw C.M.May Smith (psychologist)Peduncular hallucinosis: Peduncular hallucinosis (PH), or Lhermitte's peduncular hallucinosis, is a rare neurological disorder that causes vivid visual hallucinations that typically occur in dark environments, and last for several minutes.

(1/2753) Differential effects of mental stress on plasma homovanillic acid in schizophrenia and normal controls.

We previously reported that mental stress by Kraepelin's arithmetic test decreases plasma homovanillic acid (pHVA) levels in psychiatrically normal healthy human subjects. The present study was undertaken to determine whether this pattern of changes in pHVA concentrations resulting from mental stress is altered in patients with schizophrenia. Fourteen male patients with schizophrenia including those under ongoing neuroleptic treatment and 14 normal male volunteers participated in the study. Following overnight fast and restricted physical activity, the subjects performed Kraepelin's arithmetic test for 30 minutes. Plasma samples were collected immediately before and after the test for measurement of pHVA levels. A significant diagnosis by Kraepelin's test effect was observed due to a decrease in pHVA levels by the Kraepelin test in control subjects but not in patients with schizophrenia. Changes in pHVA levels during the Kraepelin test positively correlated with pre-test pHVA levels in control subjects, while this correlation was not observed in patients with schizophrenia. These results may be further support for the presence of a dopamine-dependent restitutive system in the brain. The absence of response of pHVA levels to mental stress in patients with schizophrenia may indicate that the dopamine restitutive system in these patients is disrupted or already down-regulated, as previously predicted.  (+info)

(2/2753) Neurocognitive and social functioning in schizophrenia.

This cross-sectional study examined the relationships between neurocognitive and social functioning in a sample of 80 outpatients with DSM-III-R schizophrenia. The neurocognitive battery included measures of verbal ability, verbal memory, visual memory, executive functioning, visual-spatial organization, vigilance, and early information processing. Positive and negative symptoms were assessed with the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale. A range of social behaviors were assessed using the Social Functioning Scale (SFS), the Quality of Life Scale (QLS), and a video-based test, the Assessment of Interpersonal Problem-Solving Skills (AIPSS). Social functioning as assessed by the SFS was unrelated to neurocognitive functioning. Poor cognitive flexibility was associated with low scores on the QLS and the AIPSS. Verbal ability and verbal memory were also significantly associated with the AIPSS. Visual-spatial ability and vigilance were associated with the sending skills subscale of the AIPSS. In this study, which used a wide range of neurocognitive tests and measures of community functioning and social problem solving, results support earlier research that suggests an association between certain aspects of neurocognitive functioning and social functioning.  (+info)

(3/2753) Ziprasidone 80 mg/day and 160 mg/day in the acute exacerbation of schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder: a 6-week placebo-controlled trial. Ziprasidone Study Group.

In this double-blind study, patients with an acute exacerbation of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder were randomized to receive either ziprasidone 80 mg/day (n = 106) or 160 mg/day (n = 104) or placebo (n = 92), for 6 weeks. Both doses of ziprasidone were statistically significantly more effective than placebo in improving the PANSS total, BPRS total, BPRS core items, CGI-S, and PANSS negative subscale scores (p < .05). Ziprasidone 160 mg/day significantly improved depressive symptoms in patients with clinically significant depression at baseline (MADRS > or = 14, over-all mean 23.5) (p < .05) as compared with placebo. The percentage of patients experiencing adverse events was similar in each treatment group, and resultant discontinuation was rare. The most frequent adverse events associated with ziprasidone were generally mild dyspepsia, nausea, dizziness, and transient somnolence. Ziprasidone was shown to have a very low liability for inducing movement disorders and weight gain. The results indicate that ziprasidone is effective and well tolerated in the treatment of the positive, negative, and depressive symptoms of an acute exacerbation of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder.  (+info)

(4/2753) Activation of Heschl's gyrus during auditory hallucinations.

Apart from being a common feature of mental illness, auditory hallucinations provide an intriguing model for the study of internally generated sensory perceptions that are attributed to external sources. Until now, the knowledge about the cortical network that supports such hallucinations has been restricted by methodological limitations. Here, we describe an experiment with paranoid schizophrenic patients whose on- and offset of auditory hallucinations could be monitored within one functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) session. We demonstrate an increase of the blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal in Heschl's gyrus during the patients' hallucinations. Our results provide direct evidence of the involvement of primary auditory areas in auditory verbal hallucinations and establish novel constraints for psychopathological models.  (+info)

(5/2753) Psychophysical isolation of a motion-processing deficit in schizophrenics and their relatives and its association with impaired smooth pursuit.

Schizophrenia patients and many of their relatives show impaired smooth pursuit eye tracking. The brain mechanisms underlying this impairment are not yet known, but because reduced open-loop acceleration and closed-loop gain accompany it, compromised perceptual processing of motion signals is implicated. A previous study showed that motion discrimination is impaired in schizophrenia patients. Motion discrimination can make use of position and contrast as well as velocity cues. Here, we report that the motion discrimination deficit, which occurs in both schizophrenic patients and in their first-degree relatives, involves a failure of velocity detection, which appears when judging intermediate target velocities. At slower and faster velocities, judgments of velocity discrimination seemed normal until we experimentally disentangled velocity cues from nonmotion cues. We further report that compromised velocity discrimination is associated with sluggish initiation of smooth pursuit. These findings point to specific central nervous system correlates of schizophrenic pathophysiology.  (+info)

(6/2753) Concurrent performance of motor tasks and processing capacity in patients with schizophrenia.

Any task is carried out more successfully if we allocate undivided attention to it, but as demands on attentional capacity increase-for example, in concurrent or dual task conditions-performance on attended tasks becomes more impaired. Patients with schizophrenia show impaired performance on tasks requiring high levels of attentional capacity. This study examines performance of 11 patients with schizophrenia and 13 normal controls on two motor tasks (placing pegs in a pegboard and repetitive index finger tapping) under unimanual, bimanual, and dual task conditions. The patients with schizophrenia placed fewer pegs and had reduced tapping speed in unimanual and bimanual conditions. However, the decrement in bimanual performance as a percentage of unimanual performance was not significantly different for the patients and controls on either the pegboard or tapping tasks. By contrast, under dual task conditions, the performance of the patients with schizophrenia in peg placement actually improved relative to the unimanual pegboard task, whereas tapping performance deteriorated compared with the unimanual tapping, a decrement that was significantly greater for the patients. Thus the improvement in the visually guided pegboard task was at the expense of the repetitive tapping task. These results are discussed in terms of an impairment of self initiated movement with general sparing of externally triggered movements in schizophrenia and the role of frontostriatal loops in this process.  (+info)

(7/2753) Computed tomographic findings in schizophrenia: relation with symptom dimensions and sex differences.

OBJECTIVE: Loss of grey matter, a consistent finding in schizophrenia, is likely to be influenced by symptom heterogeneity and sex. This study was conducted to determine the extent and region of brain atrophy in schizophrenia and its relation to symptom syndromes and to patient sex. DESIGN: Prospective study of consecutive patients. SETTING: Psychiatric department of a general teaching hospital. PATIENTS: Sixty-one consecutive patients (37 men and 24 women) admitted to hospital for acute exacerbation of schizophrenia, as diagnosed according to the DSM third edition, revised. INTERVENTIONS: Computed tomographic examination of the head. OUTCOME MEASURES: Diffuse atrophy and atrophy in the frontal and temporal regions and the sylvian fissure were rated using the CT Rating Scale for Schizophrenia. Ratings were contrasted between male and female subjects; relations between atrophy ratings and 3 symptom dimensions of schizophrenia were examined for male and female subjects separately. RESULTS: Widening of the sylvian fissure was positively related to psychomotor poverty (r = 0.32, p < 0.01). There was a significantly stronger relation between diffuse atrophy and reality distortion in female than in male subjects. There was no sex difference in the atrophy rating in all regions of the brain, and this lack of sex difference was not related to age of onset, length of illness or age at the time of the CT scan. CONCLUSION: The morphological changes in the brain on CT are no greater in men than in women with schizophrenia. Different mechanisms may be involved in producing reality distortion symptoms in men and women.  (+info)

(8/2753) Disruption of latent inhibition in rats with postnatal hippocampal lesions.

Disruption of latent inhibition has been proposed as a possible model of cognitive abnormalities that underlie positive symptoms of a schizophrenia. We tested neonatal hippocampal lesioned rats in a latent inhibition paradigm. Lesions of the ventral hippocampus were induced by bilateral injections of ibotenic acid in 7 days old rats. The behavior of lesioned rats was tested postpubertally. We found a hyperresponsiveness to dopaminergic stimulation by apomorphine in locomotion tests. Latent inhibition was tested using the acquisition of a conditioned reaction in a two-way shuttle box. Sham operated control animals showed after preexposure of the to-be-conditioned stimulus (combined tone and light stimulus) a low acquisition. Ibotenic acid lesioned animals learned the conditioned reaction with and without preexposure in the same way, indicating disturbed latent inhibition. These results demonstrate disturbances in early postnatal hippocampal lesioned rats comparable with those seen in schizophrenic patients, thus further validating this procedure as a useful animal model of some aspects of schizophrenia.  (+info)


Can a deaf schizophrenic hear voices?


I was sitting in my psychology class the other day and it hit me, can a deaf schizophrenic hear voices? Or are the exempt from that part of the disorder? I don't know why this question popped in my head, but if anyone knows the answer or insight please share!  
What I mean is someone who is born deaf... someone who cannot possibly know what words mean, and yet is schizophrenic? For example, those people who do things that the voices tell them to, if you're deaf you wouldn't necessarily have the case that " the voices" to me to. So I'm drawing the conclusion that a born deaf person would be exempt from those voices.
----------

Hearing, in the conventional sense, is sound waves passing through air, vibrating the eardrum, transferring the vibrations to the cochlea and into the fluid and finally moving the hairs which is sensed by the nerves and finally end up in the brain as nerve impulses created from the physical sounds we hear.  In this sense, NO, since there are NO physical sounds being made. However, since this is a disease of the MIND, then of course, they "hear" with the mind's ear as well as people "see" with the mind's eye.


How can I help my schizophrenic brother with personal hygeine?


Brief background: my brother is 21, single, and schizophrenic.  He is on his meds, holds down a job as a cashier in a grocery store, and lives in his own apartment.

The only problem is, he has trouble with personal hygiene.  He won't brush his teeth for days, or wash his hair, although he takes showers daily, and sometimes he even forgets deodorant.  I worry people may become offended by his poor hygiene.

Since I don't live with him, is there anything I can do to help him out?
----------

You might get a copy of  the book, "Surviving Schizophrenia: A Manual for Families, Patients, and Providers" by E. Fuller Torrey, Fifth Edition.  I know Barnes & Noble has it.  Amazon.com only has the 4th edition.  That is very good reading and tells a lot about schizophrenia, and how to deal with the issues relating to it.

What happens if you videotape a schizophrenic person?


I was wondering what would happen if you record a person talking to imaginary people, then show them the video. Would it help them become sane? Is this already done to schizophrenic patients?
----------

what he sees, hears etc. may not be real to you but very real to him! if you show him the video it would make him even more confused and feel misunderstood and powerless, he could turn angry and violent... the whole experience must be very scary to the person, i dont think just telling him what he sees/hears arent real or even showing him will make any point... what you do might seem to him like you are proving him wrong and he would feel blamed... um at least thats what i think

----------

Schizophrenia is thought to be primarily passed down due to environmental issues , like poor parenting .........
it sounds like he is paranoid and has had poor parenting........he doesnt know how to trust, and lacks certain skills that many people learn as children growing up in a trustworthy household and parent......
he needs some therapy where he can learn what trust is, who to trust, what is normal , and what is not normal , what to overlook in an imperfect person, vs what is just crazy......
He may never figure out all that, or risk truely trusting enough to really love.........
If he doesnt reach out to others, doesnt form relationships with others, doesnt have love needs, he is already shut down from childhood,and probably wont change.

How do I help someone who thinks he is a paranoid schizophrenic?


One of my friends thinks he is a paranoid schizophrenic. Yet he is also very talented. How can this be so? And how can I help him?
----------

1) paranoid schizophrenia is not incompatible with being very intelligent and talented. It is simply an illness, which happens to be a mental illness, not a physical one.
2) you can help him by persuading him to seek medical help, and by giving him your continued support as a friend, so showing him that no one is going to think worse of him for facing up to his problem and seeking help. Lots of people think that others will think worse of them if they are diagnosed as mentally ill. We need to help our friends by letting them know that we still love care and respect them as we did before.
3) He should start by seeing his GP, who will refer him to a psychiatrist if he needs one. (UK only)
