A psychotic disorder characterized by the patient's belief that acquaintances or closely related persons have been replaced by doubles or imposters.
A neurodegenerative disease characterized by dementia, mild parkinsonism, and fluctuations in attention and alertness. The neuropsychiatric manifestations tend to precede the onset of bradykinesia, MUSCLE RIGIDITY, and other extrapyramidal signs. DELUSIONS and visual HALLUCINATIONS are relatively frequent in this condition. Histologic examination reveals LEWY BODIES in the CEREBRAL CORTEX and BRAIN STEM. SENILE PLAQUES and other pathologic features characteristic of ALZHEIMER DISEASE may also be present. (From Neurology 1997;48:376-380; Neurology 1996;47:1113-1124)
Uncrossed tracts of motor nerves from the brain to the anterior horns of the spinal cord, involved in reflexes, locomotion, complex movements, and postural control.
Subjectively experienced sensations in the absence of an appropriate stimulus, but which are regarded by the individual as real. They may be of organic origin or associated with MENTAL DISORDERS.
A false belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that persists despite the facts, and is not considered tenable by one's associates.
Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.
Intracytoplasmic, eosinophilic, round to elongated inclusions found in vacuoles of injured or fragmented neurons. The presence of Lewy bodies is the histological marker of the degenerative changes in LEWY BODY DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE but they may be seen in other neurological conditions. They are typically found in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus but they are also seen in the basal forebrain, hypothalamic nuclei, and neocortex.

Capgras syndrome: a clinical manifestation of watershed cerebral infarct complicating the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. (1/11)

Ischaemic cerebral accidents are frequent following extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), especially after fixing the reinjection cannula in the right primitive carotid artery, which leads to an interruption in downstream flow. We describe a rare and unusual symptom of cerebral ischaemic accident that is known as Capgras syndrome. This feature is interesting because it may be documented by computed tomography (CT) scan and particular electroencephalography signals. It appears that our observation represents the first documented case of Capgras syndrome complicating ECMO. This incident emphasizes the potential hazards associated with right common artery ligature for venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VAECMO). In addition, it shows that this psychiatric symptom (that has been interpreted psychodynamically for many years) can have an organic basis, which should be studied.  (+info)

Capgras' syndrome in dementia with Lewy bodies. (2/11)

We report the occurrence of Capgras' syndrome, or the delusion of doubles, in a patient with dementia with Lewy bodies. The patient believed that several similar-looking impostors had replaced his wife of over 50 years. Uncharacteristically, he adopted a friendly attitude with these impostors. This unusual convivial reaction to the impostors may result from differential involvement of the dual visual pathways processing facial recognition and emotional responses to faces. The delusion resolved spontaneously, coincident with worsening of the dementia. In a retrospective chart review of 18 autopsy-confirmed cases of dementia with Lewy bodies, delusions were reported in 5 subjects (27.8%), of whom 1 had misidentification delusions much like Capgras' syndrome.  (+info)

Schizophrenia and monothematic delusions. (3/11)

Numerous delusions have been studied which are highly specific and which can present in isolation in people whose beliefs are otherwise entirely unremarkable - "monothematic delusions" such as Capgras or Cotard delusions. We review such delusions and summarize our 2-factor theory of delusional belief which seeks to explain what causes these delusional beliefs to arise initially and what prevents them being rejected after they have arisen. Although these delusions can occur in the absence of other symptoms, they can also occur in the context of schizophrenia, when they are likely to be accompanied by other delusions and hallucinations. We propose that the 2-factor account of particular delusions like Capgras and Cotard still applies even when these delusions occur in the context of schizophrenia rather than occurring in isolation.  (+info)

Capgras' syndrome with organic disorders. (4/11)

Capgras' syndrome, one form of the delusional misidentification syndromes, is described. Three patients with the syndrome are reported. The first had a right cerebral infarction, the second had nephrotic syndrome secondary to severe pre-eclampsia in the puerperium, and the third had uncontrolled diabetes mellitus with dementia. Evidence is reviewed regarding an organic aetiology for Capgras' syndrome. We conclude that, when the syndrome is present, a thorough search for organic disorder should be made.  (+info)

Shared delusions of doubles. (6/11)

This is the first report of two partners in a folie a deux situation manifesting identical Capgras delusions. It is postulated that the Capgras syndrome developed as a result of interaction between a dominant patient with primarily paranoid psychopathology and a submissive one with primarily organic dysfunction. The submissive "neuro-organic" partner experienced a non-delusional misidentification that acquired a delusional component and developed into the Capgras syndrome as a result of elaboration by the dominant paranoid partner, who subsequently "imposed" the Capgras delusion on the submissive partner. The submissive patient, and, to a lesser extent the dominant patient, had evidence of organic cerebral dysfunction.  (+info)

Responses to facial and non-facial stimuli presented tachistoscopically in either or both visual fields by patients with the Capgras delusion and paranoid schizophrenics. (7/11)

An experiment was carried out designed primarily to test A B Joseph's suggestion that patients with Capgras delusion may have problems integrating information between the two cortical hemispheres; and at the same time it was meant to examine J Cutting's ideas linking schizophrenia in general, and the Capgras delusion in particular, to right hemisphere dysfunction. Three patients with the Capgras delusion and three matched controls diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenics were briefly presented pairs of line-drawn object and photographs of faces randomly in the left visual field, the right visual field or bilaterally. The results with objects revealed no particular pattern of performance for either group; but, when faces were shown, the controls revealed the usual left visual field/right hemisphere advantage while for the Capgras group this was reversed. The results are not consistent with a simple prediction from Joseph's hypothesis but they are in accord with Cutting's theory-though they also pose some problems for it, which are discussed.  (+info)

Migraine madness: recurrent psychosis after migraine. (8/11)

A 69 year old man with longstanding migraine with aura had four episodes of psychosis lasting 7-28 days during a 17 year period. During attacks he had formed visual hallucination and delusions, including reduplicative paramnesia. His mother was similarly affected. His EEG showed symmetrical frontal delta waves. The time course and EEG changes are similar to acute confusional migraine. The reduplicative paramnesia suggests a focal non-dominant hemisphere dysfunction.  (+info)

Delusions, or false beliefs, are common in Lewy body dementias and can come in many forms. One fairly common delusion is a recurrent, temporary belief that a familiar person, often a close family member or caregiver, or location has been replaced by an identical imposter. This is called Capgras syndrome, which according to one study, affects approximately 17% of people with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Recent research investigated whether there is an association with other DLB symptoms and Capgras syndrome.. Researchers at the Pearl I. Barlow Center for Memory Evaluation and Treatment at the New York University Medical Center evaluated 55 patients with DLB, 11 of who had Capgras syndrome. While global dementia ratings and performance on neuropsychological tests were not different between the two groups, all of the patients with Capgras syndrome also had visual hallucinations. Anxiety increased the risk of Capgras syndrome ten-fold. Caregivers of individuals with Capgras syndrome, who are ...
The Capgras syndrome, more commonly known as the Capgras delusion, is a unique disorder that is often found in individuals with schizophrenia. Due to its bizarre nature, it is frequently found in popular culture. It is named after Joseph Capgras, who first described it in 1923. Here are the basics regarding the Capgras syndrome.. Symptoms. The Capgras syndrome is marked by a delusion in which a family member, spouse, or other close person is replaced by an imposter that is identical in appearance, from the perspective of the patient. Alternatively, it is possible for the person to view themselves as the double. The Capgras syndrome can also involve places and objects as items of misidentification, as well as being present in chronic, acute, or transient forms.. Classification. Most often seen in schizphrenic patients, it can also occur in other conditions such as dementia and brain injury. It is often argued that the Capgras syndrome (delusion) should be regarded as a symptom and not something ...

Imposter syndrome is not a random phenomenon that a small group of people suffer from. Typing imposter syndrome into Google Scholar yields over 7,000 results. A standard Google search will give you even more. There have been so many books and articles written on this topic because its so common. My imposter syndrome started at the beginning of grad school, but it is not limited to those in science. Authors like Maya Angelou, actresses like Tina Fey, and athletes like Darren Lockyer have all been quoted talking about feeling like a fraud. Its important to know that youre not the only one who feels like this. Starting conversations about imposter syndrome may help you realize that many of your colleagues struggle with it too. Having open and honest conversations with trusted friends can do wonders to alleviate the struggle.. Step 3: Remind Yourself that Feelings and Facts Are Not the Same.

Our patients is a 53-year old right-handed Caucasian female, who has been married for over 20 years, has a 20 year old son, and works with her husband in a family run business. She initially presented with tremor and stiffness, predominantly on her right side, in 2011, for which her GP referred her to Istituto Neurologico Besta. Clinical history was unremarkable, and there was no family history of psychiatric or movement disorders. She underwent a DAT-scan in September 2012, which revealed presynaptic dopaminergic deficit. At the time, her MMSE score was 29/30; no affective or delusional symptoms were noted at the outpatient visits or were reported by family members. Brain MRI was normal. She was diagnosed with PD, and in March 2013 she was started on extended release Pramipexole up to 2.1 mgs, with moderate improvement in her motor symptoms. The medication choice was dictated by the evidence of lower risk in motor complications compared to levodopa, in keeping with current treatment guidelines ...
I want to draw attention to a supernova impostor that has flared back up, and some are saying it could have gone supernova. Here is a link to the relevant Astronomers Telegram:. http://www.astronomerstelegram.org/?read=4412. Supernova imposters are visually as bright as supernova but they do not destroy the progenitor and some of them, like SN 2009ip have a repeat eruption. As the ATEL reports, Nathan Smith has guessed that this one might have popped off as a true supernova this time. Eta Carinaes great eruption in the 1840s is the prototype for this kind of object in our own galaxy.. Observing this object is a stretch for most northern hemisphere observers because it is at Declination -29. However it is an object of great interest and any good CCD photometry would be appreciated. Johnson V is normally most helpful. Cousins R and I are also useful for supernova impostors (because dust production can make them redder as they evolve).. Here is a link to photo on flicker with the object ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence and correlation of three major psychological constructs in practicing Physician Assistants in the continental United States. Through voluntary participant completion of a comprehensive online survey the Imposter Phenomenon (IP), depression, and anxiety were analyzed using the Clance Imposter Phenomenon Scale (CIPS) and the Depression Module and Anxiety Module of the Primary Evaluation of Mental Disorders (PRIME-MD). Demographic questions including age, gender, graduation date, and total number of years in practice were also asked. Hypotheses suggested that the presence of the Imposter Phenomenon would mimic earlier research showing that IP exists in approximately one-third of professionals, regardless of profession. Additionally, it was predicted that IP scores would decrease as the number of years in practice increased. Researchers in this study also did not expect to observe a gender difference in physician assistant (P A) reports of the
Our early clinical studies applying the two-factor approach to delusions had focussed primarily on single cases of monothematic delusions with seemingly fantastic belief content (e.g., Capgras delusion; the delusional belief that a loved one has been replaced by a visually similar impostor).

Imposter syndrome doesnt come out of nowhere-it comes from real experiences of people trying to tell us that we dont belong. Recently I asked people on Twitter about their worst experiences of imposter syndrome and feeling like theyre not real writers-and I was startled by all the stories I got back, of microaggressions and other weird behavior.. Unfortunately, speculative fiction is full of people trying to remind you of your place in some imaginary pecking order. Many years ago, I was overjoyed to get one of my stories into a small-press anthology, which also featured a few big name authors. At the launch party, I read my story, and one well-known author read his. Afterwards, that author, whom Id met a few times before, came up to me and said, Your story was much better than I expected it to be. Then he paused and, as if wanting to make sure his message had gotten through, he leaned forward and said, No, really. I didnt expect it to be that good.. Everyone has had experiences like ...

This paper presents the status of our present CMU face recognition work. We first present a face recognition system that functions in the presence of illumination variations. We then present initial results when pose variations are also considered. A separate minimum noise and correlation energy (MINACE) filter is synthesized for each person. Our concern is face identification and impostor (non-database face) rejection. Most prior face identification did not address impostor rejection. We also present results for face verification with impostor rejection. The MINACE parameter c trades-off distortion-tolerance (recognition) versus discrimination (impostor rejection) performance. We use an automated filter-synthesis algorithm to select c and to synthesize the MINACE filter for each person using a training set of images of that person and a validation set of a few faces of other persons; this synthesis ensures both good recognition and impostor rejection performance. No impostor data is present in ...

Its not always easy spotting the cuckoo in the nest. But if you dont, you pay a high price raising someone elses chick. How hosts distinguish impostor eggs from their own has long puzzled scientists. The problem remained largely unsolved while looking at it through our own eyes. It was only when people started thinking from the birds perspective that they began to understand how hosts recognise a cuckoo egg in the nest. Marcel Honza from the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic explains that birds see UV wavelengths that are well outside our own visual range. Knowing that many bird eggs reflect UV wavelengths, Honza wondered whether altering the reflected UV spectrum of an egg would affect a birds ability to recognise it as foreign and reject it. Would a blackcap recognise and evict an impostor egg if the reflected UV spectrum were different from the wavelengths reflected by the birds own clutch? Teaming up with Lenka Polaà  iková, Honza headed into a near-by forest to test ...

Yesterday, I found myself struggling with my writing. As one does. The scene wasnt coming together; the characters didnt want to behave; the emotions felt flat on the page, and I started to ask myself whether or not I was headed in the right path, whether the scene Id chosen wasnt just a shortcut to the quicksand swamp that separated me from the Mountain of Endgoal. I was at 26,000 words. Yup, typical writing block time: the dreaded Middle.. Its always comforting to know that other writers feel the same way, but as Libba Bray says in her brilliant and heartfelt post (thanks JJ!), taking comfort in the idea that others feel this way does not make the hardship any less personal.

The members of the Russian royal family, the House of Romanov, were assassinated by Bolsheviks in Yekaterinburg, Russia, on July 17, 1918. Afterwards, a number of people came forward claiming to have survived the assassination. All were impostors, as the skeletal remains of the Imperial family have since been recovered and identified through DNA testing. To this day, a number of people still falsely claim to be members of the Romanov family, often using false titles of nobility or royalty. In 1991, human remains were found in the forest outside Yekaterinburg. They have been identified through DNA testing as belonging to the Romanovs and their servants. In 1998, the Romanovs were buried in St. Petersburg and have been declared passion bearers by the Russian Orthodox Church. However, two sets of remains were missing from the mass grave. Scientists identified the missing family members as Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich of Russia, who was a few weeks short of his fourteenth birthday at the time of the ...
