A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)

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)

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).

Errorless learning has proven to be an effective method for (re)learning tasks in several patient groups with amnesia. However, so far only a handful of studies have examined the effects of errorless learning in patients with Korsakoffs syndrome. The aims of this feasibility study were to (a) examine the effects of errorless learning training on (re)learning tasks in a patient with Korsakoffs syndrome, (b) examine the effects of the nature of the training on the execution of the tasks, and (c) examine characteristics that may mediate learning outcome. Professional caregivers, who were trained in errorless learning principles, taught 51 patients with Korsakoffs syndrome two everyday tasks. Significant improvements in the performance were found after an errorless intervention for different types of trained tasks (activities of daily living, chores, mobility, housekeeping). Moreover, the results of this study suggest that all patients, despite of age, educational level, or level of cognitive ...

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is usually found in good sources such as brown rice and whole grains. It is believed that this vitamin is important in starting an impulse for the conduction in nerves and its levels can be measured in the blood. Deficiency of thiamine can lead to neurological conditions such as beriberi or a syndrome known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Beriberi is more common in Asia whilst Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is familiar in resource-rich countries. Beriberi can present itself as a dry form, which is an impairment of sensory and motor systems in the arms and legs (nerves dysfunction). The wet form of beriberi involves cardiovascular problems affecting the heart rate and potentially leading to heart failure. Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is commonly seen in resource-rich countries and especially in individuals who suffer from chronic alcoholism. This condition results in a loss of muscle coordination, short-term memory loss and impairment of the normal reasoning and perception. ...
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 ...
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.

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.

The vitamin thiamine also referred to as Vitamin B1, is required by three different enzymes to allow for conversion of ingested nutrients into energy. [13] Thiamine can not be produced in the body and must be obtained through diet and supplementation. [23] The duodenum is responsible for absorbing thiamine. The liver can store thiamine for 18 days.[13] Prolonged and frequent consumption of alcohol causes a decreased ability to absorb thiamine in the duodenum. Thiamine deficiency is also related to malnutrition from poor diet, impaired use of thiamine by the cells and impaired storage in the liver. [23]Without thiamine the Krebs Cycle enzymes pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDH) and alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (alpha-KGDH) are impaired.[13] The impaired functioning of the Krebs Cycle results in inadequate production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or energy for the cells functioning.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Most clinicians will be aware of the former; ever since the original observations of Broca, Wernicke, Pick, Dejerine and others in the last century, neurologists have been interested in the cerebral localization of higher mental ...
Vitamin B1 might be created exclusively in fungi, bacteria, and plants despite all living creatures needing it. It is an important nutrient for humans because, like all other animals, they need to acquire it through their diet. While a deficiency in mammals leads to optic neuropathy, Korsakoffs syndrome and Beriberi disease, which attacks the cardiovascular system and/or the peripheral nervous system, in birds, polyneuritis is far more common due to the lack of vitamin B1. If left untreated, a deficiency might even prove to be fatal. In cases which are not severe, there might be occurrences of weight loss, confusion, malaise, and irritability.. Thiamine mononitrate, which is non-hygroscopic, is the Vitamer which has been employed for food and flour fortification.

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 ...

Piers Pigou Apartheid assassin Ferdi Barnards revelations before the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions (TRC) amnesty committee this week about destabilisation before the 1994 election have again raised questions about the extent of security force participation in the Boipatong massacre. Barnard claimed that hitmen provided guns to Zulu hostel dwellers to carry out a series of massacres across the Reef, including the Boipatong massacre in which more than 40 residents of the small Vaal Triangle township were murdered in June 1992 by Inkatha Freedom Party supporters from the nearby KwaMadala hostel. In startling new evidence Barnard testified that several days before the massacre he was informed that guns would be given to KwaMadala residents for an attack on the African National Congress. He was, however, unable to say whether security force elements were involved in the attack. Theories regarding security force involvement in the massacre remain highly contested. Seventeen hostel residents, ...
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 ...
