A neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by one or more of the following essential features: immobility, mutism, negativism (active or passive refusal to follow commands), mannerisms, stereotypies, posturing, grimacing, excitement, echolalia, echopraxia, muscular rigidity, and stupor; sometimes punctuated by sudden violent outbursts, panic, or hallucinations. This condition may be associated with psychiatric illnesses (e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; MOOD DISORDERS) or organic disorders (NEUROLEPTIC MALIGNANT SYNDROME; ENCEPHALITIS, etc.). (From DSM-IV, 4th ed, 1994; APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
A type of schizophrenia characterized by abnormality of motor behavior which may involve particular forms of stupor, rigidity, excitement or inappropriate posture.

Parkinsonism following encephalitis, historically seen as a sequella of encephalitis lethargica (Von Economo Encephalitis). The early age of onset, the rapid progression of symptoms followed by stabilization, and the presence of a variety of other neurological disorders (e.g., sociopathic behavior; TICS; MUSCLE SPASMS; oculogyric crises; hyperphagia; and bizarre movements) distinguish this condition from primary PARKINSON DISEASE. Pathologic features include neuronal loss and gliosis concentrated in the MESENCEPHALON; SUBTHALAMUS; and HYPOTHALAMUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p754)
State of mind or behavior characterized by extreme skepticism and persistent opposition or resistance to outside suggestions or advice. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)

Decreased density of GABA-A receptors in the left sensorimotor cortex in akinetic catatonia: investigation of in vivo benzodiazepine receptor binding. (1/47)

OBJECTIVES: Catatonia is a psychomotor syndrome with concomittant akinesia and anxiety which both respond almost immediately to benzodiazepines such as lorazepam. The benzodiazepine receptor distribution was therefore investigated in akinetic catatonia with single photon emission tomography (SPECT) using iodine-123-iomazenil ((123) I Iomazenil). METHODS: Ten akinetic catatonic patients, 10 psychiatric controls (similar age, sex, medication, and underlying psychiatric diagnosis but without catatonic syndrome), and 20 healthy controls were investigated with SPECT 2 hours after injection of (123) I Iomazenil. To exclude potential effects of cerebral perfusion (r-CBF) r-CBF was additionally investigated with Tc-99mECD SPECT. RESULTS: Catatonic patients showed significantly lower iomazenil binding and altered right-left relations in the left sensorimotor cortex compared with psychiatric (p<0.001) and healthy (p<0.001) controls. In addition, there was significantly lower r-CBF in the right lower prefrontal and parietal cortex in catatonia whereas in the left sensorimotor cortex no differences in r-CBF between groups were found. Catatonic motor and affective symptoms showed significant correlations (p<0.05) with benzodiazepine binding in the left sensorimotor cortex as well as with right parietal r-CBF. CONCLUSIONS: Reduced iomazenil binding suggests decreased density of GABA-A receptors in the left sensorimotor cortex in akinetic catatonia. In addition to reduced GABA-A receptor density in the left sensorimotor cortex the parietal cortex seems to be involved in pathophysiology of catatonic symptoms. It is concluded that, considering results from correlation analyses, both emotional and motor symptoms in catatonia seem to be closely related to left sensorimotor and right parietal alterations.  (+info)

Ictal catatonia as a manifestation of de novo absence status epilepticus following benzodiazepine withdrawal. (2/47)

To describe ictal catatonia as a manifestation of de novo absence status epilepticus following benzodiazepine withdrawal. Ictal catatonia was documented by concurrent EEG recordings. A catatonic syndrome, first diagnosed as a psychogenic reaction, was found to be an ictal event by EEG recording. De novo absence status and benzodiazepine withdrawal should be considered when a catatonic syndrome suddenly occurs in elderly patients.  (+info)

Catatonia in autistic spectrum disorders. (3/47)

BACKGROUND: The clinical pictures of autistic spectrum disorders include features described in catatonia. AIMS: To examine the severe exacerbation of the catatonic features of autistic disorders in adolescence or early adult life, which occurs in some individuals. METHOD: A semi-structured interview schedule was used to collect information from parents or other care-givers concerning 506 referrals to a specialist clinic for autistic spectrum disorders. Individuals with severe exacerbation of catatonic features were compared with a same-age group of referrals without this type of deterioration in skills and behaviour. RESULTS: Seventeen per cent of referrals aged 15 or over had severe exacerbation of catatonic features. They were significantly more likely than the comparison group to have had, before the onset of the change in behaviour, impaired language and passivity in social interaction. CONCLUSIONS: Catatonia is a later complication of autistic spectrum disorders, which adds considerably to the burden of caring. More research is needed to identify causes, neuropathology, and early signs of vulnerability.  (+info)

Inter-ictal and post-ictal psychoses in frontal lobe epilepsy: a retrospective comparison with psychoses in temporal lobe epilepsy. (4/47)

There have been few studies of the psychopathology of patients with frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE). The majority of studies of both inter-ictal and post-ictal psychoses have strongly suggested the influence of temporal lobe disturbance on psychoses. Patients with organic brain damage or schizophrenia, however, sometimes show frontal lobe dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to better understand the effect, if any, of frontal lobe disturbance and seizure on psychopathology. Patients were divided into four groups based on epilepsy type and preceding seizures; 8 with FLE/inter-ictal psychosis, 3 with FLE/post-ictal psychosis, 29 with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE)/inter-ictal psychosis, and 8 with TLE/post-ictal psychosis. Psychopathologic symptoms were retrospectively reviewed based on case notes, using a modified brief psychiatric rating scale (BPRS). Psychomotor excitement, hostility, suspiciousness, and hallucinatory behaviour were prominent features in all four groups. Six orthogonal factors were derived by factor analysis from the original data based on the 18 BPRS items. FLE patients with inter-ictal psychosis showed marked hebephrenic characteristics (i.e. emotional withdrawal and blunted effect). Our findings suggest that patients with FLE can exhibit various psychiatric symptoms. However, their psychotic symptoms, hebephrenic symptoms in particular, may often be overlooked.  (+info)

Splitting schizophrenia: periodic catatonia-susceptibility locus on chromosome 15q15. (5/47)

The nature of subtypes in schizophrenia and the meaning of heterogeneity in schizophrenia have been considered a principal controversy in psychiatric research. We addressed these issues in periodic catatonia, a clinical entity derived from Leonhard's classification of schizophrenias, in a genomewide linkage scan. Periodic catatonia is characterized by qualitative psychomotor disturbances during acute psychotic outbursts and by long-term outcome. On the basis of our previous findings of a lifetime morbidity risk of 26.9% of periodic catatonia in first-degree relatives, we conducted a genome scan in 12 multiplex pedigrees with 135 individuals, using 356 markers with an average spacing of 11 cM. In nonparametric multipoint linkage analyses (by GENEHUNTER-PLUS), significant evidence for linkage was obtained on chromosome 15q15 (P = 2.6 x 10(-5); nonparametric LOD score [LOD*] 3.57). A further locus on chromosome 22q13 with suggestive evidence for linkage (P = 1.8 x 10(-3); LOD* 1.85) was detected, which indicated genetic heterogeneity. Parametric linkage analysis under an autosomal dominant model (affecteds-only analysis) provided independent confirmation of nonparametric linkage results, with maximum LOD scores 2.75 (recombination fraction [theta].04; two-point analysis) and 2.89 (theta =.029; four-point analysis), at the chromosome 15q candidate region. Splitting the complex group of schizophrenias on the basis of clinical observation and genetic analysis, we identified periodic catatonia as a valid nosological entity. Our findings provide evidence that periodic catatonia is associated with a major disease locus, which maps to chromosome 15q15.  (+info)


In a study of 21 cases of catatonic schizophrenic reaction of adolescence, sexual conflict situations and stern religious orientation of the family were noted in most cases. Incest was a factor in four of the female patients and masturbatory guilt was a prominent reaction in the remainder. Sex education was mostly misinformation and threats of dire consequences for sexual activity. Fourteen of the cases involved broken homes for significant periods of childhood or adolescence. It was hypothesized that sexual conflict situations grew out of incompatible socio-cultural attitudes and normal adolescent psychological and physiological drives. We formulated the "defined body contact" technique as a means of facilitating the reversal of the catatonic behavior, which we saw as the primary device whereby the patient limited physical contacts. The contacts we used in this technique were defined explicitly and implicitly as non-sexual.The catatonic symptoms remitted in days to several weeks in 13 of the cases. Seven patients required electroshock therapy. Twenty of the 21 patients returned to their homes or to non-institutional residences. The length of hospitalization was materially influenced by the degree of readiness of the outside environment to accept the returnee.  (+info)


Prostaglandins E(1), E(2) and E(3), injected into the cerebral ventricles of unanaesthetized cats, produced sedation, stupor and signs of catatonia. The threshold dose was 3 mug/kg. Slight sedation was also observed following an intravenous injection, but a dose of 20 mug/kg was required. In chicks, intravenous injections of prostaglandins (10 to 400 mug/kg) caused respiratory depression, profound sedation, loss of normal posture and, with the higher doses, loss of the righting reflex.  (+info)


The pharmacological properties of a phenothiazine derivative thioproperazine have been compared with those of chlorpromazine, and the modifications by some anti-Parkinsonian drugs of its actions on the central nervous system have been studied. Thioproperazine was less potent than chlorpromazine in lowering blood pressure and antagonizing adrenaline in the cat, in depressing respiratory rate in the rabbit, in producing hypothermia and analgesia and in reducing the minimum anaesthetic dose of hexobarbitone in mice, and in protecting rats from convulsions induced by tryptamine. It was roughly equipotent to chlorpromazine in reducing locomotor activity of mice. Thioproperazine was more potent than chlorpromazine in protecting grouped mice from the acute toxicity of dexamphetamine, in preventing the acute behavioural disturbances produced by dexamphetamine in the rat, in producing a state of experimental catatonia in the rat and in preventing the emetic action of apomorphine in the dog. Hyoscine, benztropine or promethazine greatly reduced the ability of thioproperazine to prevent behavioural changes due to dexamphetamine in the rat and also abolished symptoms of experimental catatonia produced by thioproperazine. In contrast, the antiapomorphine activity of thioproperazine in the dog was not reduced to any extent by hyoscine or benztropine.  (+info)

Initial treatment is aimed at providing symptomatic relief. Benzodiazepines are the first line of treatment, and high doses are often required. A test dose of intramuscular lorazepam will often result in marked improvement within half an hour. In France, zolpidem has also been used in diagnosis, and response may occur within the same time period. Ultimately the underlying cause needs to be treated.[8] Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is an effective treatment for catatonia, however, it has been pointed out that further high quality randomized controlled trials are needed to evaluate the efficacy, tolerance, and protocols of ECT in catatonia.[14] Antipsychotics should be used with care as they can worsen catatonia and are the cause of neuroleptic malignant syndrome, a dangerous condition that can mimic catatonia and requires immediate discontinuation of the antipsychotic.[8] Excessive glutamate activity is believed to be involved in catatonia; when first-line treatment options fail, NMDA ...
Case material and retrospective studies support the use of both lorazepam and ECT in treating catatonia, but few prospective investigations exist and none employ quantitative monitoring of response. In this study we test their efficacy in an open, prospective protocol, and define a lorazepam test with predictive value for treatment. Twenty-eight patients with catatonia were treated systematically with parenteral and/or oral lorazepam for up to 5 days, and with ECT if lorazepam failed. Outcome was monitored quantitatively during the treatment phase with the Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale (BFCRS). In 16 of 21 patients (76%) who received a complete trial of lorazepam (11 with initial intravenous challenge), catatonic signs resolved. A positive response to an initial parenteral challenge predicted final lorazepam response, as did length of catatonic symptoms prior to treatment. Neither demographic variables nor severity of catatonia predicted response to lorazepam. Four patients failing lorazepam
At a empty catatonia the patient repeatedly reproduces the same poses, the movements and phrases, repeats words and the movements after other people. The active, passive or paradoxical negativism is observed. At active negativism the patient does something, not corresponding to instructions, at passive - ignores any requirements, at paradoxical - carries out something, opposite to a request. The katalepsiya comes to light - a state at which the patient long keeps one pose or parts of his body for a long time stiffen in any, even uncomfortable position. At a lyutsidny and oneyroidny catatonia the listed displays of a disease are supplemented with productive symptomatology. At a lyutsidny form of a disease the nonsense, hallucinations and changes of mood arise against the background of clear consciousness. At a oneyroidny catatonia consciousness violations are observed. After an exit from a catatonia the patient partially or completely forgets what happened to it or at his presence, but keeps ...
Clozapine has a broad pharmacological profile, antagonizing 5HT2, cholinergic, dopaminergic and histaminergic receptors, and agonizing GABA receptors. Abrupt discontinuation, therefore, can lead to a diverse presentation of withdrawal, ranging from diarrhoea to rebound psychosis2,3,4. Catatonia on abrupt discontinuation has been rarely documented(2,3,4,5,6,7,8).. While the diagnosis of NMS was also a possibility, it was ruled out due to the falling levels of CK on serial measurement, the lack of leucocytosis, the lack of muscle rigidity or fever, and the lack of a recent history of sudden increase or withdrawal of predisposing medication. The preceding few weeks of behavioural changes including withdrawal, negativism and agitation supported a diagnosis of lethal catatonia as opposed to NMS9.. Up to 50% of patients on clozapine discontinue their treatment, mainly due to side effects and the need to have regular blood tests10. Another common reason for discontinuation is the onset of ...

The results of our study for the most part concur well with results of studies reported in the wider literature [16, 17, 19, 41]. A study summarizing data from over 1000 patients indicated that mood disorders were common causes of catatonia [3, 42]. The trend of the proportions of underlying conditions (mood disorder , schizophrenia , GMC) in our sample is consistent with other studies [20, 43, 44]. However, unlike our study where only one participant with mood disorder had bipolar disorder, many catatonic patients in some of these older studies had bipolar disorder [1, 41]. This discrepancy may partly be explainable by the fact that most of our participants with mood disorders (13 of the 15) were first episode cases. This is consistent with the fact that bipolar I disorder may often start with depression [45]. The broader demographic characteristics of our sample, specifically the mean age of participants, and the male to female ratio are consistent with other reports [24, 25, 31, 41, 46, ...
Introduction: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is considered the most effective treatment for catatonia regardless its underlying condition. The rigid fixed posture and immobility observed in catatonia may lead to several clinical complications, of which, pulmonary embolism (PE) is one of the most severe. The rapid improvement of the psychiatric condition in catatonia-related PE is essential, since immobility favors the occurrence of new thromboembolic events and further complications. In that scenario, ECT should be considered, based on a risk-benefit analysis, aiming at the faster resolution of the catatonia. Methods: Case report and literature review. Results: A 66-years-old woman admitted to the psychiatric ward with catatonia due to a depressive episode presented bilateral PE. Clinically stable, but still severely depressed after a trial of antidepressants, she was treated with ECT in the course of full anticoagulation with enoxaparin. After five ECT sessions, her mood was significantly ...
OBJECTIVES/SPECIFIC AIMS: Background: Delirium is a well described form of acute brain organ dysfunction characterized by decreased or increased movement, changes in attention and concentration as well as perceptual disturbances (i.e., hallucinations) and delusions. Catatonia, a neuropsychiatric syndrome traditionally described in patients with severe psychiatric illness, can present as phenotypically similar to delirium and is characterized by increased, decreased and/or abnormal movements, staring, rigidity, and mutism. Delirium and catatonia can co-occur in the setting of medical illness, but no studies have explored this relationship by age. Our objective was to assess whether advancing age and the presence of catatonia are associated with delirium. METHODS/STUDY POPULATION: Methods: We prospectively enrolled critically ill patients at a single institution who were on a ventilator or in shock and evaluated them daily for delirium using the Confusion Assessment for the ICU and for catatonia ...

NMDA Receptors are vital for learning and behavior. They are mostly in the hippocampus and the frontal lobes. They either excite a neuron to fire or supress it. Antibodies were attaching to the surface of the neurons preventing them from sending chemical signals. Decrease NMDA Receptors by 40% and you get psychosis. By 70% you have catatonia. Catatonia is the height of the disease. If untreated, it can progress to breathing failure, coma and sometimes death. For 70% the disease begins like flu - headaches, nausea, etc. After two-weeks psychiatric issues begin - insomnia, anxiety, fear, grandiose delusions, hyper religiosity, and paranoia. 75% have seizures. Language and memory deficits arise. Autonomic issues develope such as too low or too high of a heart rate. 50% it is started by an ovarian tumor called a terratoma.

In football news, last years CFL sack leader, Ricky Foley has been released by the Seattle Seahawks. With BC last year, hes a free agent and obviously will draw some interest as a non-import rush end. Should the Cats go after him? Good question. The Cats defensive line has been decent, although not stellar and Foley would be an improvement, at least in terms of ratio. Starting him and Matt Kirk on the line would be pretty sweet. However the Cats have been burnt by midseason NFL signings in the past (see Keith, Kenton), so maybe theyre a little gunshy. Whoever signs Foley will have to have some cap room. Im sure BC will make a run at resigning him, although a team with a single win probably wont make the playoffs if thats a concern for Foley. Historically the Argos would be in there. Speaking of history, the Cats have been rumoured to have cap room every season, so maybe they could win the bidding war and frontload the contract this year so the next two seasons wouldnt have as big a cap hit ...

Okunojima, a small island in the Inland Sea of Japan, off the shore of Takehara city was notorious for the production of poison gases from 1927 to 1945. Of the gases produced there, yperite and lewisite were the most poisonous and caused severe residual damage. (Testimony of Dr. Christine M. Gosden on Chemical and Biological Weapons Threats to America: Are We Prepared? April 22nd, 1998). Pictures of the former gas poison factory on Okunojima (page in Japanese). Allegedly, the poison gas factory on Okunojima was so secret that trains driving past the island on the coast had their windows facing the sea barred. In 1945, the workers, who included many forced labourers from China and Korea, were liberated, as were the many rabbits used in experiments. The workers left. The rabbits stayed.

While its not very common, disorganized schizophrenics can suffer from hallucinations, but are more commonly characterized by the symptoms mentioned above as well as an absence of emotions or expression of emotions. They may make strange faces or use strange postures, they tend to be very uncoordinated, and often keep themselves isolated. Catatonic. Thankfully, medical research has made it so that catatonic schizophrenia is extremely rare nowadays. This form of schizophrenia is really sad because there is little that can be done except to medicate and wait. Unlike other types of schizophrenia, the catatonic schizophrenic experiences episodes rather than constant symptoms. During these episodes, the person suffers from complete physical immobility; they cannot move or speak, they generally hold a blank stare and a rigid position. While experiencing all of this they may also experience a catatonic stupor where they are completely unaware of where they are or what is going on. On the opposite ...
Reich:…. The child comes into the world unintegrated, not disintegrated, because it never was integrated. But unintegrated. And how does that show?

If you look at a newborn baby, the movements are without meaning, without purpose. They give the impression of meaninglessness, purposelessness, exactly as in the schizophrenic, catatonic. Is that clear? Now we would not say, as the psychoanalysts say, that the schizophrenic or catatonic regresses to this phase. We think differently. I wouldnt like to discuss whether they are right or wrong. But what is clear is that there are similar or even identical situations in the catatonic and the infant, especially in mannerisms. And the common thing is that both lack meaningfulness and purpose, purposefulness. Is that clear? The infant and the schizophrenic, the catatonic especially. And we ...

Teddy falls into a catatonic state and deals with severe PTSD and depression that leaves her processing all of her losses and mistakes.
Background: Disulfiram, an agent used for the treatment of alcohol dependence, can exacerbate psychiatric syndromes (including psychosis, catatonia, delirium, depression, and mania) after extended use. However, delirium has yet to be reported following the short-term use of disulfiram in the setting of alcohol use. Objectives: We report a case with a neuropsychiatric presentation and discuss the prevention and the progression of delirium associated with an interaction of disulfiram and ethanol. Case Report: We report the case of a 51-year-old woman who developed disorganized speech, diminished communication, a decrease in appetite, and thoughts of suicide 10 days after she began taking disulfiram (250 mg/day), to which she added 1 glass of alcoholic beverage for 2 days. Delirium developed in association with an interaction between disulfiram and alcohol. The patient met DSM-IV criteria for major depressive disorder, alcohol dependence, and delirium. Discussion: Neuropsychiatric manifestations ...

One of my last memories of 2008 is of a visit to a bookstore with my daughter. We had been at the pictures as we old fogeys call films, an entertaining piece of fluff that will sit with me for about a nanosecond. To my great joy my daughter had asked before the film if we could go to the bookstore afterwards. The cinema is in an outdoor mall of faux splendor though its very outdooriness puts it above the great gaggle of indoor concrete monsters which generally send me into a mild catatonia in seconds. And it has a decent enough bookstore though they are all giant warehouses these days. My daughter knows the mall and the bookstore and she ran - yes, ran - to the bookstore after the film and scrambled up the escalators and straight to the kids department.

They soon settled on a line-up consisting of Rhys on vocals and guitar, Ieuan on drums, his brother Cian Ciaran (formerly of WWZZ) on keyboards, Huw Bunford (formerly of U-Thant) on guitar and Guto Pryce on bass. This line-up has remained constant to the present day, although the role of each member has become more flexible, particularly in the studio.. In 1995, following a couple of largely Welsh-language EPs on the Ankst label, they signed to Creation Records. Apparently, when offering them the deal after a gig, Alan McGee, head of Creation, asked that they sing more songs in English. Rhys pointed out that all the songs that night had been in English. Super Furry Animals went on to release their critically acclaimed first album, Fuzzy Logic, in 1996 - the first time Rhys ...
While the main function of Fear is a protective one, Fear can also cause life-threatening damage. The phrase pass out from fear isn t just a figure of speech. For the more advanced animals and humans the process of mobilization of the organism is an exceedingly strong force pushing the body s chemicals level to an extreme. Clinical researchers and coroners have seen and recorded a number of cases where death is not caused by any organic reason. In so-called primitive civilizations (tribes) there have been recorded deaths that were caused by the crossing of a cultural taboo or a cursing of a witch. This is called Voodoo death (studied and described by physiologist Kennon). Acute catatonic schizophrenia, which may be caused by intensive Fear (along with other reasons), may have a fatal outcome for the patient. In mobilizing the body in anticipation of danger, Fear can literally overdo its task. Total mobilization is only appropriate when the subject needs the strength to plunge into a fight for ...

Version 49.0.2 has been an emphatic confirmation that I should never update working software on my system. Against my usual rule, I chose to update to 47.0.2 (from 47.0.1) and got 49.0.2 instead (Ive already read about that). First problem was that when I ran the downloaded stub, the install did not start. Many attempts, still no start. So then I located the Firefox setup file that was created when I ran the stub, and ran that to complete the installation. Now, when I start Firefox from the start menu, it goes to a blank about page instead of my previously set up home page, and then goes into a catatonic state (ergo, it stops responding). After much researching on the Mozilla support site, I learned that I could start it in safe mode to troubleshoot. And Voila! Starting in safe mode comes up and opens on my designated home page. Also, new tabs have all of my pinned sites. But now I am stuck trying to figure out what is causing the problem in regular mode. I would just run in safe mode but ...

The name of this syndrome comes from the Greek word astheneia - that is, powerlessness, weakness. Perhaps, this is the most common syndrome in psychiatry, and it does not matter-whether it is a psychosis, neuroses or other mental disorders. In fact, it is also one of the most simple syndromes in psychiatry (of course, from the point of view of understanding) and reflects mainly quantitative rather than qualitative changes in the psyche. Do not forget that we are talking about positive, or productive, symptoms. Differences from it asthenic syndrome, which is negative, or deficient, I will explain when it is his turn to describe.. What is asthenic syndrome in its essence, it is easy to understand if we consider the human psyche as an open thermodynamic system. Anticipating the mass immersion of readers in a trance or catatonic stupor from the abundance of terminology, I venture to resort to a simple example. Theres a leaky bucket. Its mental. It is constantly pouring water. This is a ...

Interestingly you cite Tourettes syndrome as an example of a true neurological disease as opposed to e.g. Schizophrenia as a psychological condition. Most of the arguments you cite regarding mental illnesses however apply to Tourette`s, too. No objective brain pathology can be demonstrated in the individual patient. Neurotransmitters are thought to be involved, but one cannot demonstrate that they are the cause. Tics can become worse with stress or sometimes disappear for a certain time. I think that it is society that defines that shouting obscene words and moving body parts in a funny way is an illness. I do not see why this should be objectively more ill than a patient with catatonic schizophrenia who is unable to move. Your argument that mental illnesses cannot be objectively diagnosed because they would otherwise be treated by neurologist and not psychiatrists is actually quite funny and shows that your concepts about what neurologist and psychiatrists are is determined by your society. ...

All of us get sad every so often, however, many individuals are afflicted by a far more profound type of sadness known as depression. Its believed that 350 million people around the world be depressed, based on the World Health Organization (WHO). We at Bel Marra feel depression is an extremely important subject, therefore we have compiled a summary of our very best articles around the subject. Youll find info on menopause and depression, irritated depression, and catatonic depression. That will help you enhance the signs and symptoms of the debilitating condition, we include articles on depression prevention and essential oils for depression.. Menopause and depression are usually two separate problems that convey more in keeping than you may think. This era inside a womans existence, going from a decrease in menstrual periods to when the monthly period stops entirely, was discovered to predispose these to be two times as likely to be affected by the signs and symptoms of depression when ...

The writer and producer of Judge John Deed (BBC1), GF Newman, no longer has a mobile phone as, he says, it made his head feel funny. Comedy is not Gordon Newmans speciality. You wonder what frivolous effect prolonged exposure to microwaves might have had on his authority-trouncing style. Mobiles phones turned up twice in this episode, Health Hazard . A single mother suffering from an aggressive tumour was suing a mobile phone company whose marketing manager sniggered whenever she swayed in her seat. A mother and her two children were then mowed down by a nasty piece of work who was arguing with his mistress on his mobile. He proceeded to fake a catatonic state. You are never in much doubt where to boo and cheer in Newman. There was also a policeman who claimed to have caught ME from his computer, but there is a limit to how many things you can worry about at once. Judge John Deed is a class act. Intelligent, articulate and beautiful. Virtue is rarely as photogenic as Martin Shaw, and Simon Ward ...
You act as if vaccines have no side effects. They do have side effects. Children die occasionally or become permanently disabled after receiving vaccines - this is a fact and there is in fact a preemptive blanket liability waiver fund in place for compensation that has paid out billions. Many more children are harmed in ways that are harder to prove direct causality (i.e. the effects occur not within the short window for direct causality), but certainly have clear correlation. Others suffer more mild effects like severe fevers, headaches, nausea (this is in fact common). These numbers are statistically small perhaps, but for the kids who died or disappeared into catatonic neurological dysfunction after a vaccine, all too real. In some cases, the number of adverse reactions outnumber the former mortality rates of the disease itself ...
The alarms are blaring outside and the TV has the shrill piercing beep and a warning to take cover immediately-that North Korea has launched missiles that will reach the U.S. in less than 5 minutes. Im so scared that I am almost in a catatonic state, finding it hard to believe that this is the end for us all. For weeks we have been getting dire predictions that war is imminent but like everyone else I did not really believe it. How could that be? How could any rational person let the rhetoric get so out of hand that here we are. But when you have so many lickspittles in Washington not willing to stand up to this administration, it was inevitable. When you have an unbalanced President who stokes the fires and provokes, and thinks it is macho to use the nuclear weapons at his disposal, it is bound to happen. I go through the motions of grabbing my birds and jumping into my bedroom closet-the safest place. But, as I am doing this I know there is no safety anywhere and I am doomed. Well at least I ...

Mad Hedge: No, I sold most of my positions in June. The risk was low in March, but not so low in June, and its even greater now.

Thought Id throw my $0.02 in here. Id seen the mold theory online before and I think that it makes a lot of sense, but it doesnt seem to completely line up with my reading. Do you think Hals condition (which I think is meant to be taken literally) could be linked to his recovering of the Entertainment? Hals father made the film in order to communicate with his son, so that Hal could understand how he felt, and it doesnt seem to be a giant leap to think that Hal would watch the cartridge after digging it up. It seems that in the conversationalist piece, Himself is trying to direct him to the future location of the Entertainment. While the Entertainment turns everyone else catatonic, maybe it has a different effect on Hal, as it is intended for him ...
Okay, this is our second introduction to haiku. The first time was the never-explained Pine wind blowing hard haiku that Martie could not quite remember whether she heard in Dr. Ahrimans office or read in the novel while waiting. It is also the first clear introduction of a parallel between the two stories, although the implied theme of memory lapses and mind control is also present in both cases. It is also another opportunity for a strange semi-catatonic reaction like Susans. If Dusty presses Skeet as to where he learned the haiku, this would be another example of Getting Too Close, and an opportunity for Skeet to react like Susan -- going catatonic as the questions become more and more dangerous, and then abruptly snapping out and remembering nothing. But apparently Koontz decides that he has put Dusty and Skeet through enough for one night, because Dusty decides Skeet has had enough for the night and declines to press ...

Additionally, the specific symptom type must be reported "with attacks or seizures."[14] Some individuals with PNES have carried an erroneous diagnosis of epilepsy. On average, it takes seven years to receive a proper diagnosis. The differential diagnosis of PNES firstly involves ruling out epilepsy as the cause of the seizure episodes, along with other organic causes of non-epileptic seizures, including syncope, migraine, vertigo, anoxia, hypoglycemia, and stroke. However, between 5-20% of people with PNES also have epilepsy.[15] Frontal lobe seizures can be mistaken for PNES, though these tend to have shorter duration, stereotyped patterns of movements and occurrence during sleep.[16] Next, an exclusion of factitious disorder (a subconscious somatic symptom disorder, where seizures are caused by psychological reasons) and malingering (simulating seizures intentionally for conscious personal gain - such as monetary compensation or avoidance of criminal punishment) is conducted. Finally other ...
There is evidence that there may be neurological indicators of early onset dysthymia. There are several brain structures (corpus callosum and frontal lobe) that are different in women with dysthymia than in those without dysthymia. This may indicate that there is a developmental difference between these two groups.[16] Another study, which used fMRI techniques to assess the differences between individuals with dysthymia and other people, found additional support for neurological indicators of the disorder. This study found several areas of the brain that function differently. The amygdala (associated with processing negative emotions such as fear) was more activated in dysthymia patients. The study also observed increased activity in the insula (which is associated with sad emotions). Finally, there was increased activity in the cingulate gyrus (which serves as the bridge between attention and emotion).[17] A study comparing healthy individuals to people with dysthymia indicates there are other ...
The English suffixes -phobia, -phobic, -phobe (from Greek φόβος phobos, "fear") occur in technical usage in psychiatry to construct words that describe irrational, abnormal, unwarranted, persistent, or disabling fear as a mental disorder (e.g. agoraphobia), in chemistry to describe chemical aversions (e.g. hydrophobic), in biology to describe organisms that dislike certain conditions (e.g. acidophobia), and in medicine to describe hypersensitivity to a stimulus, usually sensory (e.g. photophobia). In common usage, they also form words that describe dislike or hatred of a particular thing or subject (e.g. homophobia). The suffix is antonymic to -phil-. For more information on the psychiatric side, including how psychiatry groups phobias such as agoraphobia, social phobia, or simple phobia, see phobia. The following lists include words ending in -phobia, and include fears that have acquired names. In some cases, the naming of phobias has become a word game, of notable example being a 1998 ...
Some drug testing authorities find paruresis a nuisance, and some implement "shy bladder procedures" which pay no more than lip service to the condition, and where there is no evidence that they have conducted any real research into the matter. In the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, the Code of Federal Regulations provides that "An inmate is presumed to be unwilling if the inmate fails to provide a urine sample within the allotted time period. An inmate may rebut this presumption during the disciplinary process."[14] Although U.S. courts have ruled that failure to treat properly diagnosed paruresis might violate prisoner's constitutional rights, the courts have also "routinely rejected suspicious or unsubstantiated attempts to invoke it in defense of failure to complete drug testing,"[15] particularly when there were no medical record or physician testimony to back up the claim of paruresis.[16] The International Paruresis Association stresses the importance of medical documentation of one's condition ...
Various modalities of treatment, including pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and various other psychosocial and educational interventions, are used in the treatment of schizophreniform disorder. Pharmacotherapy is the most commonly used treatment modality as psychiatric medications can act quickly to both reduce the severity of symptoms and shorten their duration. The medications used are largely the same as those used to treat schizophrenia, with an atypical antipsychotic as the usual drug of choice. Patients who do not respond to the initial atypical antipsychotic may benefit from being switched to another atypical antipsychotic, the addition of a mood stabilizer such as lithium or an anticonvulsant, or being switched to a typical antipsychotic.[1] Treatment of schizophreniform disorder can occur in inpatient, outpatient, and partial hospitalization settings.
