Current trends in cognitive rehabilitation for memory disorders. (1/48)

Progress in the neuropsychology of memory disorders has provided a foundation for development of cognitive rehabilitation for amnesic patients. Accumulating evidence in the past two decades suggested that certain training techniques could be beneficial to many amnesic patients, such as teaching and acquisition of domain-specific knowledge, motor coding, reality orientation, and meta-cognition improvement. In this article we review and discuss the current trends in cognitive rehabilitation of memory disorders and provide a future direction in this emerging field. In addition, our experience in the successful rehabilitation of Korsakoff syndrome patients is also introduced.  (+info)

Intact enhancement of declarative memory for emotional material in amnesia. (2/48)

Emotional arousal has been demonstrated to enhance declarative memory (conscious recollection) in humans in both naturalistic and experimental studies. Here, we examined this effect in amnesia. Amnesic patients and controls viewed a slide presentation while listening to an accompanying emotionally arousing story. In both groups, recognition memory was enhanced for the emotionally arousing story elements. The magnitude of the enhancement was proportional for both amnesic patients and controls. Emotional reactions to the story were also equivalent. The results suggest that the enhancement of declarative memory associated with emotional arousal is intact in amnesia. Together with findings from patients with bilateral amygdala lesions, the results indicate that the amygdala is responsible for the enhancement effect.  (+info)

Group and case study of the dysexecutive syndrome in alcoholism without amnesia. (3/48)

OBJECTIVES: To test the dysexecutive syndrome (DES) hypothesis of chronic alcoholism by the neuropsychological group and case study approaches. METHODS: A comprehensive neuropsychological assessment, including the "behavioural assessment of dysexecutive syndrome", a battery of tests recently designed to be "ecologically valid", was administered to 17 patients with chronic alcoholism without amnesia to examine executive functions, intelligence, and memory. In terms of each neuropsychological measure, reciprocal analyses of group means and individual case profiles were conducted: for the first contrasting the alcoholic patients with 17 age matched healthy subjects; and for the second making intersubject and intrasubject comparison of the patients, according to percentile basis impairment indices obtained from the control subjects. RESULTS: Despite relatively unimpaired memory and intelligence, the patients as a whole had the impairment of a wide range of executive domains, extending to "everyday" problem solving as well as more elementary aspects of executive functions, such as visuospatial performance, mental set shifting, and the inhibition of habitual behaviour. The profile analysis divided individual patients into four groups: the representative DES characterised by a clear dissociation between impaired executive functions and preserved intelligence and memory; the group of a modified dysexecutive pattern in which memory as well as executive functions were impaired with intelligence preserved; the group of general cognitive deterioration; and the group of unimpaired cognitive functioning. About two thirds of the patients were categorised into either the first or the second type of DES. CONCLUSION: DES characterised by the even more pronounced impairment of executive functions than of intelligence and memory afflicts a considerable proportion of patients with chronic alcoholism. Due to its subtlety, this would be potentially left out, unless appropriate behavioural measures were administered. This condition may prevent patients with alcoholism from achieving full recovery and benefiting from rehabilitation.  (+info)

Structural MRI volumetric analysis in patients with organic amnesia, 2: correlations with anterograde memory and executive tests in 40 patients. (4/48)

BACKGROUND: Cognitive-MRI correlations have often been studied in disorders in which there are multiple cognitive deficits and widespread cortical atrophy, such as Alzheimer's dementia. In such circumstances, the interpretation of any single cognitive-structural correlation is equivocal. Only by measuring differing cognitive functions and a wide range of brain structures in patients with a varying distribution of lesions or atrophy can specific brain-cognitive relations be determined in neurological disorder. METHOD: In the present study, a clear set of anatomical criteria and detailed MRI segmentation procedures were applied to measure whole brain, and left and right frontal, temporal lobe, anterolateral and medial temporal volumes, as well as thalamic cross sectional areas in 40 patients with organic amnesia (from various diseases) and 10 healthy controls. RESULTS: Within the total patient group, anterograde memory measures correlated significantly with medial temporal, hippocampal, and thalamic measurements. A spatial memory measure correlated significantly with hippocampal volume, and temporal context memory with frontal volume. After a factor analysis of the cognitive measures, the association between anterograde memory and hippocampal volume was corroborated. Forgetting rates and subjective memory evaluations did not show any significant MR correlations and, of executive tests employed, only card sorting categories correlated significantly with frontal volume. CONCLUSION: Loss of volume in key brain structures (for example, hippocampus, thalamus) is detectable on quantitative MRI, and this loss of volume correlates significantly with impaired performance on measures of anterograde memory function. Correlations with hippocampal volume did not indicate a specific role in either recall or verbal memory, as opposed to recognition or visual memory.  (+info)

Influence of reboxetine on salivary MHPG concentration and cognitive symptoms among patients with alcohol-related Korsakoff's syndrome. (5/48)

This study is based on the hypothesis of a paraventricular cerebral noradrenaline deficit in alcoholic Korsakoff's syndrome. In a randomized open study the effects of a 4-week treatment with the selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor reboxetine on (1) the salivary concentration of the noradrenaline metabolite MHPG and (2) changes in cognitive performance measured by the Mini Mental Status Test were examined. The study group consisted of 105 patients diagnosed with alcohol-related Korsakoff's syndrome (ICD-10: F10.6). Korsakoff's patients showed a reduced concentration of salivary MHPG compared to healthy controls; this reduction did not correlate with the results of the Mini Mental Status Test. An increase in salivary MHPG was found together with an improvement in the Mini Mental Status Test both in the verum group treated with reboxetine and in the control group upon completion of the 4-week study. However, a subgroup with a shorter duration of disease (<1 year) was found to profit significantly from reboxetine treatment, as shown by improvements in cognitive performance.  (+info)

Comparisons of Korsakoff and non-Korsakoff alcoholics on neuropsychological tests of prefrontal brain functioning. (6/48)

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that alcoholics exhibit particular deficits in brain systems involving the prefrontal cortex, but few studies have directly compared patients with and without Korsakoff's syndrome on measures of prefrontal integrity. METHODS: Neuropsychological tasks sensitive to dysfunction of frontal brain systems were administered, along with standard tests of memory, intelligence, and visuospatial abilities, to 50 healthy, abstinent, nonamnesic alcoholics, 6 patients with alcohol-induced persisting amnestic disorder (Korsakoff's syndrome), 6 brain-damaged controls with right hemisphere lesions, and 82 healthy nonalcoholic controls. RESULTS: Korsakoff patients were impaired on tests of memory, fluency, cognitive flexibility, and perseveration. Non-Korsakoff alcoholics showed some frontal system deficits as well, but these were mild. Cognitive deficits in non-Korsakoff alcoholics were related to age, duration of abstinence (less than 5 years), duration of abuse (more than 20 years), and amount of alcohol intake. CONCLUSIONS: Abnormalities of frontal system functioning are most apparent in alcoholics with Korsakoff's syndrome. In non-Korsakoff alcoholics, factors contributing to cognitive performance are age, duration of abstinence, duration of alcoholism, and amount of alcohol consumed.  (+info)

The role of thiamine deficiency in alcoholic brain disease. (7/48)

A deficiency in the essential nutrient thiamine resulting from chronic alcohol consumption is one factor underlying alcohol-induced brain damage. Thiamine is a helper molecule (i.e., a cofactor) required by three enzymes involved in two pathways of carbohydrate metabolism. Because intermediate products of these pathways are needed for the generation of other essential molecules in the cells (e.g., building blocks of proteins and DNA as well as brain chemicals), a reduction in thiamine can interfere with numerous cellular functions, leading to serious brain disorders, including Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, which is found predominantly in alcoholics. Chronic alcohol consumption can result in thiamine deficiency by causing inadequate nutritional thiamine intake, decreased absorption of thiamine from the gastrointestinal tract, and impaired thiamine utilization in the cells. People differ in their susceptibility to thiamine deficiency, however, and different brain regions also may be more or less sensitive to this condition.  (+info)

A rational approach to dementia. (8/48)

Dementia is a common problem facing all medical practitioners and it frequently results in hospitalization and death. This review provides a framework for dealing with dementia in clinical practice that is based on both traditional concepts and recent advances in the understanding of the problem. Distinguishing at the bedside between dementia and other disorders of intellect is emphasized. The main causes of dementia and their clinical characteristics are reviewed and a rational approach to definitive diagnosis is developed. Simple, effective symptomatic forms of therapy are described.  (+info)

RECOGNITION A recognition test differs from a recall test in that it provides the correct response embedded within a list of several other alternatives. The patient must choose the correct response from among these alternatives during a specified retrieval period. In other words, instead of having to try to recall the responses on his own, the patient is provided a set of responses from which to choose. The task could be either: 30 2. THE ORIGINAL MEMORY MODEL to select which responses he learned, or to tell which responses were originally paired with which stimuli, or to arrange the responses in a particular order.

We investigated the role of feedback processing in decision making under risk conditions in 50 patients with amnesia in the course of alcoholic Korsakoffs syndrome (KS). Half of the patients were administered the Game of Dice Task (GDT) and the remaining 25 patients were examined with a modified version of the GDT in which no feedback was provided. Patients results in the GDT and in the modified version were compared with that of 50 healthy subjects of whom 25 subjects performed the original GDT and 25 performed the modified version. While performance on the original GDT was superior to performance on the modified GDT in healthy subjects, KS patients performed similarly on both the GDT with and GDT without feedback. Performance on both task versions was correlated with categorization and set-shifting. The findings indicate that amnesic patients do not profit from receiving feedback for their decisions in explicit risk conditions. (C) 2008 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved ...
Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is a disorder caused by a thiamine deficiency. Initially damage occurs to various nerves in the central nervous system. As the condition progresses, it effects the area of the brain that controls memory.

The goals of treatment of Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome are to control symptoms as much as possible and to prevent progression of the disorder.
Deficiency of nutrients such as minerals, proteins and vitamins are found in alcoholics. Low blood potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc and phosphorus can occur in alcoholics. Vitamins like thiamine (B1), nicotinic acid (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid, ascorbic acid (Yitamin C) and vitamin A may be deficient in alcoholics. Thiamine (B1) deficiency causes Wernickes and Korsakoffs syndrome.. Wernicke syndrome (= Wernicke disease or encephalopathy) is characterized by mental disturbance, paralysis of eye movements and ataxia (a loss of the power of muscular co-ordination) of gait (manner of or carriage in walking). Korsakoffs syndrome (= Korsakoffs psychosis) is characterised by confusion and severe impairment of memory, especially for recent events.. ...
It is important to ensure that the affected person continues to abstain from drinking alcohol, and that the person maintains a balanced diet with adequate thiamine intake. However, even if the person stops drinking and replenishes thiamine, symptoms of the disease (e.g., problem behaviors, agitation, lack of coordination, learning deficits) may continue. In an abstinent (i.e., sober) WKS patient, these symptoms must be recognized as part of the disease caused by irreversible damage to the brain and nervous system.. Family caregivers should take precautions to ensure the safety of the person with WKS, as well as others in the household. The confused or disoriented individual should not be left alone. Supervision is required to ensure that the person does not wander away from home, leave the stove on or the water running.. Short-term memory problems mean that the confused person may repeat the same question again and again. Coping with frequent repetition often involves a trial-and-error approach ...
I think Ive met Clark before, although he insists we havent. He could have been the one who talked to us in the summer of 2002, when I was visiting from California with my boyfriend at the time.

But mostly, its the voice - scraggly and slow, wandering over the words and picking up each one for examination. I remember that he - or this person like him - asked my boyfriend and me if we were married. When we said no, he asked if we were having sex.. While Clark doesnt seem like the type to care whether or not an unmarried couple is sleeping together, he is very much attuned to his need for romance.

When a person struggles with alcohol use disorder for a long time, they are at risk of developing several chronic conditions. One of these is colloquially referred to as wet brain, a type of dementia or cognitive impairment caused by a lack of thiamine, or vitamin B1. Wet brain is actually a combination of two related conditions: Wernicke encephalopathy and Korsakoffs syndrome (more extreme forms are called Korsakoffs psychosis). The overall medical condition is called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome.. Most people consume enough thiamine to prevent the development of this condition. However, people who struggle with alcohol use disorder may focus on consuming alcohol instead of eating a balanced diet, with whole grains and lean proteins. In other cases, alcohol can upset the stomach and the person may experience loss of appetite, or vomiting, which can reduce sources of thiamine. The liver stores some thiamine, although not very much, and damage to the liver from long-term alcohol abuse can ...
Obvious physical disease is not the only damage the individual can suffer due to heavy drinking. Alcohol causes disruptions in certain areas of brain chemistry and structure, which can result in brain damage. According to NIAAA, this can lead to degrees of brain damage ranging from memory lapses to a severe disease called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, a combination of Wernickes encephalopathy and Korsakoffs psychosis, both resulting from a deficiency in thiamine that can be caused by alcohol consumption.. Wernickes encephalopathy causes a disconnect between the nerves and the brain that can result in a person being confused and struggling with muscle coordination. About 80-90 percent of people who develop this disorder also develop Korsakoffs psychosis, resulting in severe damage to memory and learning abilities, resulting in further loss of coordination, which can be debilitating.. Drinking alcohol in pregnancy can also result in damage to the brain of a developing fetus, resulting in ...

Alcohol-related dementia presents as a global deterioration in intellectual function with memory not being specifically affected, but it may occur with other forms of dementia, resulting in a wide range of symptoms.[3] Certain individuals with alcohol-related dementia present with damage to the frontal lobes of their brain causing disinhibition, loss of planning and executive functions, and a disregard for the consequences of their behavior. Other types of alcohol-related dementia such as Korsakoffs Syndrome cause the destruction of certain areas of the brain, where changes in memory, primarily a loss of short term memory,[4] are the main symptom. Most presentations of alcohol dementia are somewhere along the spectrum between a global dementia and Korsakoffs Psychosis, and may include symptoms of both.[3]. Individuals affected by alcohol-related dementia may develop memory problems, language impairment, and an inability to perform complex motor tasks such as getting dressed. Heavy alcohol ...
The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of thiamine for a woman is 1mg per day, whilst for a man it is 1.5mg. People who are deficient in thiamine may experience fatigue, irritability, depression and abdominal discomfort.. Deficiency in vitamin B1 can lead to a disease called Beriberi. This is when a substance called pyruvic acid builds up in the bloodstream, causing a loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and heart damage1. Another disorder caused by vitamin B1 deficiency is Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome which affects the brain, characterized by memory impairment and nerve damage. ...
Asymptomatic conditions may not be discovered until the patient undergoes medical tests (X-rays or other investigations). Some people may remain asymptomatic for a remarkably long period of time; such as people with some forms of cancer. If a patient is asymptomatic, precautionary steps must be taken. A patients individual genetic makeup may delay or prevent the onset of symptoms. Some diseases are defined only clinically, like AIDS being opposed to HIV infection. Therefore, it makes no sense to speak about "asymptomatic AIDS". This concept of clinically defined diseases is related in some way to the concept of syndrome. ...

Performance of patients with Korsakoffs syndrome and herpes encephalitis was compared on a retrograde amnesia (RA) test, asking subjects to recall and recognize the definitions of words that had come into the language at different time periods. Performance was also compared on a related test in which participants were asked to produce the words to definitions they were given in free recall and cued recall versions. It was hypothesized that, if the temporal gradient in remote memory results from a shift of information from episodic to semantic memory, then there should be a temporal gradient on these tasks, possibly steeper (i.e., greater relative sparing of early memories) in the patients in the Korsakoff group than in the herpes encephalitis group, who have widespread temporal lobe damage. Furthermore, in comparing semantic and episodic remote memory tests, consolidation theory would predict uniform temporal gradients across such tasks, whereas multiple trace theory would predict a ...
DM v Y City Council [2017] EWCOP 13, Bodey J, 15 June 2017. On a s 21A MCA 2005 application the court determined that it was in DMs best interests to remain in the current care home where he was forbidden to drink alcohol rather than move to a home that allowed the consumption of alcohol.. DM suffered from Korsakoffs Syndrome and lacked capacity to make decisions as to his care and residence and as to drinking alcohol. He needed support with all aspects of daily living. DM wished to drink alcohol. Expert evidence established that in view of his cirrhosis of the liver even if he were to drink a relatively low level of alcohol his life expectancy would be significantly reduced. The judge was referred to Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust v James [2013] UKSC 67 and Local Authority X v MM and Another [2007] EWHC 2003 including the passage in Munby Js judgment, "What good is making someone safe if it merely makes them miserable?". Bodey J considered it a finely balanced decision, and ...
Wernickes encephalopathy must be viewed as a medical emergency even if there are other possible DIAGNOSES that are being considered. As the condition is potentially reversible, patients with any combination of the above symptoms should be treated with thiamine.. As little as 2mg of thiamine may be enough to reverse the eye problems but initial higher doses of at least 100mg are advisable. Thiamine solutions should be fresh as old solutions may be inactive. The problems of gait and acute confusional state may improve dramatically although improvement may not be noted for days or months. After thiamine has been started doctors may consider treatment with GLUCOSE.. They will carefully monitor the cardiovasculatr status of patients. Doctors will investigate the patients magnesium levels and correct any deficiency. Some drug treatments have been tried INCLUDING THE SELECTIVE SEROTONIN re-uptake inhibitor FLUOXAMINE AND a drug called clonidine to improve memory. HOWEVER THERE is still no satisfactory ...
Behavioural Neurology is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that provides a platform for researchers and clinicians working in the areas of neurology, cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology and neuropsychiatry.
Transketolase is a key enzyme in the pentose-phosphate pathway which has been implicated in the latent human genetic disease, Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Here we report the cloning and partial characterisation of the coding sequences encoding human transketolase from a human brain cDNA library. The library was screened with oligonucleotide probes based on the amino acid sequence of proteolytic fragments of the purified protein. Northern blots showed that the transketolase mRNA is approximately 2.2 kb, close to the minimum expected, of which approximately 60% was represented in the largest cDNA clone. Sequence analysis of the transketolase coding sequences reveals a number of homologies with related enzymes from other species ...
Too much alcohol can cause permanent brain damage, such as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, which is largely related to thiamine deficiency. Previous animal studies have shown that alcohol can also cause brain injury and degeneration by inhibiting insulin and insulin-like growth factor. A new study using postmortem human brain tissue has found that chronic alcohol abuse can decrease levels of genes needed for brain cells to respond to insulin/IGF, leading to neurodegeneration similar to that caused by type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is the best known neurologic complication of(vitamin B1) deficiency. The term refers to two different syndromes, each representing a different stage of the disease. Wernicke encephalopathy (WE) is an acute syndrome requiri
BeriBeri was known to the Chinese 5000 years back. However the fact that it was due to Vitamin B1 deficiency was only known in 1926. This vitamin is found in nuts, legumes, yeast and rice (unpolished). It is not found in fruits, milk or vegetables. The meagre quantities found in these can be destroyed by cooking as well.. This vitamin is required for the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins in the body. It forms part of a chemical required for enzymatic activity.. The requirement for man and woman is slightly more than 1 mg /day. A pregnant woman may require about one and half times of this.. Severe deficiency of this vitamin can cause the following diseases:. Infantile beriberi. Adult beriberi. Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Leigh disease. Infantile beriberi occurs in infants less than 6 months fed exclusively on formula feeds not having thiamine. It is now rare.. Adult Beriberi:. Dry beriberi usually causes nervous system disorder. Wet beriberi causes swelling of feet, breathlessness, ...

The hippocampus is a section of the brain located below the cerebral cortex. It is a part of the limbic system and plays a part in memory.. The name derives from the fact that its curved shape resembles that of a sea horse (Greek: hippocampus).. There is substantial evidence (from animal studies and from patients with brain injury) that the hippocampus is crucial in the conversion of short term memory into long memory, though it is not yet clear how this occurs. Individuals whose hippocampus becomes damaged (for instance, those with Korsakoffs syndrome), whilst retaining the ability to access long-term memories from before their injury, become unable to form new ones. They can, however, learn new skills (such as playing a musical instrument) but will be totally unable to remember how they gained those skills.. There is also evidence, that the hippocampus is involved in storing unique information, as for example locations. Without a fully functional hippocampus a person may no more be able ...
Akerman Road (the first directly-developed council housing scheme for Lambeth in 10 years) shows the fabric first design principles in action. Nine new homes have been created to complete a Victorian terrace with a refurbishment of the blue plaque listed former homeless hostel - once the home of music hall comedy legend Dan Leno.. Three four-bedroom houses have been newly built and certified to the Passivhaus standard - a rigorous voluntary standard for energy efficiency meaning these homes will have very low heating costs and, over time, a minimal carbon footprint. There are only about 150 certified Passivhaus developments so far in the UK - but the principle works for an Antarctic research station.. The new homes (which are let at council rents) meet the standard of our Design Principles by fitting into their environment. With the new entrances and triple glazed windows integrated into the 19th Century terrace and the brick and render finish, you can walk past without realising that the ...
The current dominant perspective on addiction as a brain disease has been challenged recently by Marc Lewis, who argued that the brain-changes related to addiction are similar to everyday changes of the brain. From this alternative perspective, addictions are bad habits that can be broken, provided that people are motivated to change. In that case, autonomous choice or "free will" can overcome bad influences from genes and or environments and brain-changes related to addiction. Even though we concur with Lewis that there are issues with the brain disease perspective, we also argue that pointing to black swans can be important, that is: there can be severe cases where addiction indeed tips over into the category of brain disease, but obviously that does not prove that every case of addiction falls into the disease category, that all swans are black ...

Important points:. 1. Alcohol increases the risk for the following cancers: oral, larynx, pharynx, esophagus, liver, and lung. It may increase the risk for gastric, colon, pancreatic, and breast cancer.. I. Alcohol is the most common cause of cirrhosis and esophageal varices.. 3. Alcohol is involved in roughly 50% of fatal car accidents, 67% of drownings and homicides, 70-80% of deaths in fires, and 35% of suicides.. 4. Always give thiamine before glucose in an alcoholic; if you give them in the reverse order, you may precipitate Wernickes encephalopathy.. Wernickes vs. Korsakoffs syndromes. Wernickes syndrome - ophthalmoplegia, nystagmus, ataxia, and confusion; acute and often reversible; may be fatal. Korsakoffs syndrome = anterograde amnesia and confabulation, chronic and irreversible. Both are due to thiamine deficiency. The most likely cause is damage to the mamillary bodies and thalamic nuclei.. Alcohol withdrawal can be fatal. Treat on an inpatient basis. Use benzodiazepines ...
A banana bag (or rally pack) is a bag of IV fluids containing vitamins and minerals. The bags typically contain thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium sulfate, and are usually used to correct nutritional deficiencies or chemical imbalances in the human body. The solution has a yellow color, hence the term "banana bag". The typical composition of a banana bag is 1 liter of normal saline (sodium chloride 0.9%) with: Thiamine 100 mg Folic acid 1 mg Multivitamin for infusion (MVI), 1 ampule Magnesium sulfate 3 g The solution is typically infused over four to eight hours or as per physicians orders. Banana bags are used in the intensive care unit to correct acute magnesium deficiencies. They are stated to be beneficial for patients with terminal illness because magnesium can mitigate nerve pain and relieve muscle pain and cramps. Banana bags are most often used for alcoholics who need thiamine to prevent Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Chronic alcoholics can suffer significant whole-body magnesium ...
Postoperative infections are 2- to 4-times more frequent in patients with alcohol use disorders with the sequel of prolonged ICU stay. Its association with an altered perioperative hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis as response to chronic alcohol consumption and surgical stress is discussed. The aim of this study was to evaluate an intervention with low-dose ethanol, morphine or ketoconazole compared to placebo on the HPA axis and the postoperative infections rate as well as the ICU stay in chronic alcoholic patients. 64 patients with alcohol use disorders undergoing elective surgery of the aerodigestive tract were included in this randomized, double-blind controlled study. Chronic alcoholic patients were defined as having a daily ethanol consumption of at least 60 g and fulfilling the DSM-IV criteria for either alcohol abuse or dependence. Perioperative intervention was started on the evening before surgery and continued for three days after surgery. Blood samples to analyze ACTH, immune ...

When I inquired the cause of death for one of them, an individual I believed I got out of jail on numerous occasions by pre-trial motion victory, outright victory at trial, or sometimes with credit for time served guilty plea, I broke down and wept when they told me that he died of complications from frost bite and a cancerous liver exacerbated by Korsakoff alcohol-induced dementia. The saddest part for me is that I knew about his serious health concerns months before his death, as he usually brought to me the paperwork from his numerous emergency room visits. It was on one of those papers I learned more about Korsakoff syndrome, but I didnt do anything about it. I told him to go see a doctor. His response then was that when he needed to see a doctor hed go to the ER as he has no primary care physician. His ER papers clearly stated that Korsakoff syndrome is a chronic memory disorder caused by a severe deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B-1) and that Korsakoff syndrome is most commonly caused by ...

I have stayed in AZ hostel for 8 nights in August 2009. This hostel was very calm and peaceful place although very central. The 5-beds dorm that i stayed in was really spacious, clean, no bunks, with enough lockers for everyone. The bathroom & showers are perfectly clean. Thanks for the generous free Tea & coffee in the lovely small kitchenette that was just in front of my dear dorm 102. The common room was marvelous, peaceful, and constantly clean. i have traveled in most of Europe, and stayed in so many hostels all over the rest of the world. I have to admit that OZ hostel was the best ever. But, the only 3 Negative points happened to me are, No lift to the entrance, only to first floor (A problem if u got heavy bags like me). The staff neither welcoming nor cooperative. The boys are OK specially Martyn -- The girls are rude (Except Anne who became more & more nice and helpful in the last of the 8 days). But Suzanne -- who never smile -- has some problems communicating with guests, she let u ...

Memory deficits in the adult can develop from lesions that disrupt circuits that interconnect structures involved in encoding and retrieving recently acquired information, as well as from those involved in transferring information to long-term storage. The most important structure of this memory system is the hippocampalentorhinal complex. Other areas involved in memory processes include the amygdala, paralimbic cortices, thalamic nuclei, mammillary bodies, fornix, hypothalamic nuclei, basal forebrain, and ventral striatum. Therefore, amnestic, or memory, disorders can occur from lesions at any part of this system and have a wide variety of causes, including infections, exposure to toxic substances, medications, vitamin deficiency, head trauma, cerebrovascular disease, tumors, and some neurodegenerative disorders. However, the most frequent cause of amnestic disorders in the adult is Alzheimers disease (AD). Indeed, focal memory deficits precede the development of dementia, and episodic memory ...

Hi Perminder: I agree strongly with you on many fronts here. Building resilience and creating cognitive reserve are not the same as preventing the conditions which constitute the dementias. As you say, its merely pushing the individual further up the ladder, from which it takes longer to fall. Similarly, one can arrive at a Korsakoffs as his original patients did, namely nutritional deficiency, alcohol related excitotoxicty, or from a stroke of the ACA or the usual thiamine route, and many causes might bring the brain to the same endpoint, yielding not necessary syndromes, but constellations of symptoms in the neurobehavioral spectrum. Clumping symptoms together in the DSM IV has yielded the same problems, namely there is more intra-diagnosis variation then inter-category variance. So anxiety and depression are then poorly differentiated as syndromes, more easily as symptom constellations, and the differentiation there is has not led to differentiated drug treatments. OCD and ADD may be two ...

The severity of the alcoholism became perfectly clear when I returned to the hostel that night and discovered that no one in my hostel had left. Every single one of them had started drinking at 9 or 10 AM or had merely slept the entire day since they were up until the early morning drinking goon the night before. Many had passed the day by drinking, sleeping, and watching Will Smith movies on Netflix. Some had left, but only to visit the bar next door (a mere ten seconds walk from the front door of the hostel). When I asked some of them if they had seen any of the festivities many stated that they did not know what was going on, some had awoken for the first time that day, and others simply laughed about how they had spent the whole day in the hostel drinking. Most claimed that they had acted this way because it was Australia Day and they had the day off. This story I would believe if they had not exhibited the same behavior every day, other than when they were at work, for the entire week I was ...

We report a case of a 45-year-old woman with WKS, who was treated with 20 mg memantine (Axura) daily for the period of 28 weeks. The patients cognitive status was evaluated using the following tests: mini-mental state examination (MMSE), Buschke selective reminding test, trail making test and Rey-Osterrieth complex figure test. No significant improvement was observed in the patients anterograde amnesia. Larger trials are needed to substantiate the efficacy of memantine for treatment of memory impairment in Korsakoffs syndrome.. ...

Their excellent depictions of the mammillothalamic tract (MTT) and implanted neuromodulation electrodes with MR imaging allow us the opportunity to further discuss amnesia-initiating lesion(s) in our case.. Korsakoff syndrome is defined as a disproportionate impairment in memory, relative to other aspects of cognitive function, resulting from a nutritional (thiamine) depletion (4). In our case, however, the patient developed acute amnesia with features of Korsakoff syndrome that were not attributable to malnutrition but were the result of a left MTT infarction.

A 2007 review from Lancet Neurology cites an even wider variety of non-alcohol scenarios that can be associated with WE including fad diets and nutritional imbalances of various sorts, magnesium deficiency (it may induce refractoriness to administered thiamine) and various situations in cancer patients. The review makes the point which, though obvious, bears mention, that WE cannot reliably distinguished from drunkenness. The optimal route for thiamine administration is IV. Although deemed controversial in some of the other reviews this one makes more specific statements about dosing. 100 mg IV daily is common practice, and while this may be appropriate for prophylaxis in at risk patients, the review recommends 500 mg IV tid for patients with strongly suspected or established WE to prevent KS, other brain damage or death.

Women typically are more prone to dementia as they age; however, a new study has reported that men are at higher risk for memory loss in their senior years than women. The study was published online on January 25 in the journal Neurology by researchers at the Mayo Clinic. The researchers conducted a prospective study of Olmsted County, MN residents aged 70-89. They were initially evaluated in October 2004 and then every 15 months; the evaluations included the Clinical Dementia Rating scale, a neurologic evaluation, and neuropsychological testing. A panel of examiners blinded (unaware) to previous diagnoses reviewed data at each evaluation to assess the seniors cognitive status.. The researchers found that among 1,450 seniors who were cognitively normal at baseline, 296 developed mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The investigators made separate evaluations of amnesic (memory loss) MCI (aMCI) and non-amnesic MCI (naMCI). The age- and sex-standardized incidence rate of MCI was 63.6 (per 1,000 ...
