MR line scan diffusion imaging of the brain in children. (1/88)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: MR imaging of the self-diffusion of water has become increasingly popular for the early detection of cerebral infarction in adults. The purpose of this study was to evaluate MR line scan diffusion imaging (LSDI) of the brain in children. METHODS: LSDI was performed in four volunteers and 12 patients by using an effective TR/TE of 2736/89.4 and a maximum b value of 450 to 600 s/mm2 applied in the x, y, and z directions. In the volunteers, single-shot echo planar imaging of diffusion (EPID) was also performed. The patients (10 boys and two girls) ranged in age from 2 days to 16 years (average age, 6.6 years). Diagnoses included acute cerebral infarction, seizure disorder, posttraumatic confusion syndrome, complicated migraine, residual astrocytoma, encephalitis, hypoxia without cerebral infarction, cerebral contusion, and conversion disorder. In all patients, routine spin-echo images were also acquired. Trace images and apparent diffusion coefficient maps were produced for each location scanned with LSDI. RESULTS: In the volunteers, LSDI showed less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than did EPID. LSDI was of diagnostic quality in all studies. Diffusion abnormalities were present in five patients. Restricted diffusion was present in the lesions of the three patients with acute cerebral infarction. Mildly increased diffusion was present in the lesions of encephalitis and residual cerebellar astrocytoma. No diffusion abnormalities were seen in the remaining seven children. CONCLUSION: LSDI is feasible in children, provides high-quality diffusion images with less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than does EPID, and complements the routine MR examination.  (+info)

Are we overusing the diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic events? (2/88)

In order to determine how often results of video/EEG (V-EEG) studies may change the clinical diagnosis of paroxysmal events, we prospectively studied 100 consecutive patients (75 females, 25 males) admitted for diagnosis of recurrent paroxysmal spells. The presumed diagnosis of the referring physician was obtained. Episodes were classified as epileptic seizures (ES), psychogenic non-epileptic events (PNEE), or physiologic non-epileptic events (PhysNEE). Eighty-seven patients had diagnostic events. A final diagnosis of ES was made in 21 patients, PNEE in 39, PNEE + ES in 20, and PhysNEE in seven. All PhysNEE were unsuspected. ES were misdiagnosed as PNEE more frequently than the reverse (57% vs. 12%, P < 0.001). Among the 64 patients with recorded events who had been suspected of having PNEE, 14 (21.9%) were misdiagnosed: two had PhysNEE and 12 (18.75%) had ES. Among the 23 patients with recorded events who were thought to have ES, 12 (39.1%) were misdiagnosed: seven had PNEE, five PhysNEE. V-EEG changed the clinical diagnosis in 29.8% of the patients with recorded events. Our data suggests that clinicians have become more aware of PNEE since the advent of V-EEG and have little problem recognizing them. However, they may be more prone to make a false-positive diagnosis of PNEE in ES with some atypical features. At this point, efforts should be channeled to better training in the proper recognition of ES that mimic PNEE.  (+info)

Pseudo-narcolepsy: case report. (3/88)

This report describes the case of a 44-year-old woman presenting to a Sleep and Alertness clinic with symptoms of narcolepsy. The patient had clinical and polysomnographic features of narcolepsy, which disappeared after disclosure of severe psychological stress. Following a discussion of the differential diagnosis of narcolepsy, alternative diagnoses are considered. The authors suggest that the patient had a hysterical conversion disorder, or "pseudo-narcolepsy." Careful inquiry into psychological factors in unusual cases of narcolepsy may be warranted.  (+info)

Headaches and other pain symptoms among patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. (4/88)

Studies of patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (NES) typically focus upon the phenomenology and outcome of NES episodes. Little is known, however, about the frequency and nature of other somatic symptoms such as pain, in this population. To assess the frequency, location and severity of symptoms of pain among NES patients, we administered structured interviews to 56 patients, 6 or more months following the diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (NES). Patients were recruited from a tertiary hospital-based epilepsy monitoring unit. Seventy-seven percent of patients suffered from moderate to severe pain, most commonly headache (61%), while neck pain and backache were also common. Twenty-six of 27 patients with persistent NES vs. 17 of 29 patients whose NES resolved experienced moderate to severe pain (P < 0.001). Pain is an under-recognized problem that occurs frequently and with significant severity among NES patients. Pain symptoms are more common among patients with persistent NES than those whose NES resolve.  (+info)

An estimate of the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. (5/88)

The prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures is difficult to estimate. We propose an estimate based on a calculation. We used the following data, which are known or have been estimated, and are generally accepted. A prevalence of epilepsy of 0.5-1%; a proportion of intractable epilepsy of 20-30%; a percentage of these referred to epilepsy centers of 20-50%; and a percentage of patients referred to epilepsy centers that are psychogenic non-epileptic seizures: 10-20%. Using the low estimates, the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures would be 1/50 000. Using the high estimates, the prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures would be 1/3000. The prevalence of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures is somewhere between 1/50 000 and 1/3000, or 2 to 33 per 100 000, making it a significant neurologic condition.  (+info)

Psychogenesis and somatogenesis of common symptoms. (6/88)

There are situations in clinical practice in which the physican should keep in mind the influence of emotional factors in the elaboration of symptoms and yet should not conclude hastily that "all is in the patient's mind". Symptoms are often the result of complex etiologic factors including life-threatening illnesses presenting psychologic symptoms as an early manifestation. Psychologic disorders and physical illnesses with similar symptoms may coexist in the same patient. There are also cases in which the symptoms are the result of the constant interaction of psychologic and physical factors. Some suggestions to help to clarify the diagnosis are given and a classification of the different clinical situations involved is presented. Becuase physicians should be constantly aware of the complexity of the factors involved in the elaboration of obscure symptoms, some recommendations are given in regard to undergraduate and graduate medical education.  (+info)

Hysterical aphonia--an analysis of 25 cases. (7/88)

Hysteria is a common neurotic disorder in psychiatric practice. Many of its conversion symptoms have not been studied in detail. In the present prospective study in a tertiary care teaching hospital, 25 cases of hysterical aphonia were analysed. There were 17 females and 8 males. Mean age of presentation was 18.4 years in females and 21.2 years in males. Majority of patients were literate upto primary class, belonging to joint family and had urban background. Duration of symptoms was within 2 weeks. Most common precipitating factor was stress of examination or failure followed by quarrels with peers or spouse. In 20% cases, cause was not known. Comorbid psychiatric disorders were found in 80% cases, the most common being mixed anxiety and depressive disorder (36%) followed by generalized anxiety disorder (20%).  (+info)

Functional neuroanatomical correlates of hysterical sensorimotor loss. (8/88)

Hysterical conversion disorders refer to functional neurological deficits such as paralysis, anaesthesia or blindness not caused by organic damage but associated with emotional "psychogenic" disturbances. Symptoms are not intentionally feigned by the patients whose handicap often outweighs possible short-term gains. Neural concomitants of their altered experience of sensation and volition are still not known. We assessed brain functional activation in seven patients with unilateral hysterical sensorimotor loss during passive vibratory stimulation of both hands, when their deficit was present and 2-4 months later when they had recovered. Single photon emission computerized tomography using (99m)Tc-ECD revealed a consistent decrease of regional cerebral blood flow in the thalamus and basal ganglia contralateral to the deficit. Independent parametric mapping and principal component statistical analyses converged to show that such subcortical asymmetries were present in each subject. Importantly, contralateral basal ganglia and thalamic hypoactivation resolved after recovery. Furthermore, lower activation in contralateral caudate during hysterical conversion symptoms predicted poor recovery at follow-up. These results suggest that hysterical conversion deficits may entail a functional disorder in striatothalamocortical circuits controlling sensorimotor function and voluntary motor behaviour. Basal ganglia, especially the caudate nucleus, might be particularly well situated to modulate motor processes based on emotional and situational cues from the limbic system. Remarkably, the same subcortical premotor circuits are also involved in unilateral motor neglect after organic neurological damage, where voluntary limb use may fail despite a lack of true paralysis and intact primary sensorimotor pathways. These findings provide novel constraints for a modern psychobiological theory of hysteria.  (+info)

Combined spinal epidural (CSE) can provide excellent labor analgesia. Subdural block is also a potential but rare complication of attempted epidural placement during a CSE procedure, which may present as a block that is usually patchy in nature, with a component of sensory and/or motor deficit and a variable duration of action. In addition, a conversion disorder or a functional neurological disorder has been described with epidural and spinal anesthesia in obstetric patients. In this clinical report, we describe a 33-year-old G4P3 at 40 weeks gestation that received an unintentional subdural block as part of her labor analgesia and after an uneventful caesarean delivery presented with a conversion disorder. The rarity of the association between a subdural block and a conversion disorder complicated by the fact that the neurological deficit produced by the subdural block and that produced by a conversion disorder are similar in distribution made the clinical presentation and diagnosis a challenge for the

If you havent read the first, you may want to start with this article, which was written on January 15th: Cause of Epidemic in Le Roy is Hush-Hush: "Are The Le Roy Twelve Really Victims of Vaccine-Injury?". Article Two: Written January 18, 2012…. Todays latest on The Le Roy Twelve reveals there is finally a diagnosis for the mysterious tic disorders in these formerly healthy and vibrant young women: "Mass Hysteria." The psychiatrists have determined that there is no real physical cause for the sudden onset of symptoms associated with serious neurological damage, so they have conclusively stated, "Its all in their heads." Its a "conversion disorder." For those who may not have heard of "Mass Hysteria" or Conversion Disorder, let me give you a little background.. The concept of Conversion Disorder was first proposed by Dr. Sigmund Freud. Dr. Freud usually gets credit for ...
We present a facile approach to synthesize amorphous iron oxyhydroxide nanosheet from the surfactant-assisted oxidation of iron sulfide nanosheet. The amorphous iron oxyhydroxide nanosheet is porous and has a high surface area of 223 m(2) g(-1). The lithium storage properties of the amorphous iron oxyhydroxide are characterized: it is a conversion-reaction electrode material, and it demonstrates superior rate capabilities (e.g., discharge capacities as high as 642 mAh g(-1) are delivered at a current density of 2 C). The impedance spectroscopy analysis identifies a RC series subcircuit originated by the conversion-reaction process. Investigation of the conversion-reaction kinetics through the RC subcircuit time constant reproduces the hysteresis in the discharge/charge voltage profile. Hysteresis is then connected to underlying thermodynamics of the conversion reaction rather than to a kinetic limitation. [-] ...

Results. Thirty patients had no relief from their original symptom at follow-up. They had been older, with more chronic symptoms, and different auxiliary psychiatric diagnoses. In 11 patients a clear neurological diagnosis was subsequently made for the original symptom. Provisional neurological diagnoses at presentation had been disproportionately common among these 11. Small numbers of patients with poor outcomes made most use of hospital and community services. High attenders met screening criteria for somatisation disorder at follow-up ...
Diagnostic Criteria One or more symptoms or deficits that alters voluntary motor or sensory function that may signal neurological or other medical condition The symptom or deficit is not intentionally produced or feigned The symptom or deficit cannot be explained medically or seen as a result of any substance

Some evidence suggests that psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) are associated with increased mortality. The authors obtained death certificate information in a cohort of 260 patients who presented with PNES between 1999 and 2004. The follow-up period averaged 7.92 years, during which 17 patients died, 12/17 were under the age of 75 years, giving a premature (,75 years) mortality rate of 0.58%, compared with a Scottish mortality rate for the 40-75 years age group of 0.41% per year. The main predictor of death was the patient age at presentation of PNES. There was no correlation with withdrawal of anticonvulsant medication, and death certificate information provided no evidence to suggest that the deaths were related to the seizure disorder. The population had a high mean deprivation rank, providing a possible explanation for a modest increase in premature death rate. ...

In light of the increasing threat of large-scale massacres such as terrorism against non-combatants (civilians), more attention is warranted not only to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) but also to acute sociogenic pseudoneurological ("conversion") symptoms, especially epidemic sociogenic symptoms. We posit that conversion disorders are etiologically related to specific evolutionary pressures (inescapable threats to life) in the late stage of the human environment of evolutionary adaptedness (EEA). Bracha et al. have recently argued that from the neuroevolutionary perspective, medically unexplained efferent vasovagal syncope and medically unexplained craniofacial musculoskeletal pain in young otherwise healthy individuals, may be taxonomized as stress and fear-circuitry disorders. In the present article, we extend neuroevolutionary perspectives to acute pseudoneurological sociogenic ("conversive") symptoms: psychogenic non-epileptic attacks ("pseudoseizures"), epidemic sociogenic disorders ...

Beginning in August 2011, 14 students (13 girls and one boy) from the LeRoy Junior-Senior High School began reporting myriad perplexing medical symptoms including verbal outbursts, tics, seizure activity and speech difficulty.[8] In mid-January, five days after a community meeting in which the New York State Department of Health stated their diagnosis could not be revealed publicly due to privacy concerns, two of the girls appeared on NBCs Today Show to discuss their frustration with not getting adequate answers.[9] The next day, Dr. Laszlo Mechtler, a neurologist treating most of the girls, was given permission to share the diagnosis of conversion disorder and mass psychogenic illness. Unsatisfied with the investigations results, the girls and their parents spoke out publicly against their diagnosis, stating they believed the situation warranted further scrutiny from outside sources. Alternative medical theories for condition were suggested, including Tourette syndrome and PANDAS, which Dr. ...

Stress is a prime example. It had been clinically proven that increased levels of stress and/or anxiety over a long period of time lead are damaging to physical health. Hair loss, ulcers, dermatological faults, sleep deprivation, stomach aches, migraines and other, surprisingly complex conditions are all potential results of the body overproducing the hormones needed for the flight-or-fight response that acute stress triggers, meant to aid survival in short-term situations, for extended periods of time.. There are also cases where the brain-body messaging system simply does not operate appropriately. Most common in children and youth, this family of somatization disorders includes most prominently, somatic symptom disorder and conversion disorder. Individuals suffering from these disorders may experience anything from abdominal pain to fatigue to sensations of tingling/temporary paralysis to even seizure-like episodes as a result of the brain misinterpreting strong emotions into physical ...
Conversion disorder is characterized by voluntary motor or sensory function deficits that suggest neurologic or medical conditions but are rather associated with clinical findings that are not compatible with such conditions. Somatic symptom disorder is characterized by one or more somatic symptoms that are distressing or result in significant disruption of daily life. To meet DSM-5 criteria, these patients must have excessive thoughts, feelings, or behaviors related to the somatic symptoms or associated health concerns as manifested by at least one of the following: disproportionate and persistent thoughts about the seriousness of ones symptoms; persistently high levels of anxiety about health or symptoms; excessive time or energy devoted to these symptoms or health concerns. Importantly, even if any one somatic symptom is not continuously present, the state of being symptomatic is persistent (typically more than 6 months). ...

Catalysts drive a vast array of chemical reactions from nature and the human body to modern manufacturing. Only in the last few years have scientists had access to powerful enough tools to begin to probe exactly what happens in a catalytic reaction. Dr. Baran Eren has dedicated his research to finding ways to observe catalysts in the act of speeding up chemical reactions at the level of the interactions of atoms and molecules. Dr. Erens scientific journey has taken him from his native Turkey to Basel and Zurich, Switzerland; to Berkeley, California; and now to Rehovot. To spy on the details of catalysts in action, Dr. Eren has worked with specialized microscopy and spectroscopy equipment and has experimented with new techniques to observe the changes in the molecules and reaction surfaces involved in chemical reactions. His investigations have already revealed new insights into the reactivity of the copper-based catalysts used in a variety of catalytic conversion reactions including carbon dioxide

Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) can cause blackouts, collapses, involuntary movements, loss of memory and have major impact on quality of life. Whereas epilepsy is caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain, PNES are psychological-based responses to triggers inside or outside the body that are perceived as threatening by the person affected.PNES are poorly understood by the medical community.
Yep, the invite was a long shot, Neurocritic - but us rare conditions peeps are used to making long shots :) In this case I made it because in a fairly recent report from Rare Disease UK the main barriers to rare diagnoses were reported as being that patients are not being believed and/or that they are told that their symptoms were psychological. Ive lost count of the number of rare conditions patients Ive met who have been traumatised by their diagnostic journeys by being told that their symptoms are functional (means different things in different parts of the world but here it was made up in a conference, apparently, much like Star Wars) or medically unexplained symptoms or whatever trendy term is being used at the time. Apparently MUPPS (medically unexplained psychological/physical symptoms) is in vogue now, in the UK. Which leads to young patients being referred to as MUPPETS - how wrong is that? (Yes, I have documented evidence of this, if you want it ...
After comparing the genomes of 12 different mammals (including humans, mice and pandas), researchers at the University of Oxford, UK, concluded that only about 8.2% of the human genome is shaped by natural selection. The rest, they argue, is non-functional. Observers noted the large difference between this estimate and a previous claim by the ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) Project that 80% of the genome is biochemically active. Patrik Dhaeseleer, a computational biologist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, California, tweeted "only between 8% and 80% of human #genome is functional. Glad weve got that sorted out." At the heart of the issue are differing definitions of function. Erick Loomis, an epigeneticist at Imperial College London, tweeted: "Maybe we should stop using functional if we cant find a common definition ...

Conversion disorder (CD) refers to the presence of deficits affecting the voluntary motor or sensory functions. These symptoms suggest neurological or other organic causes, but they are believed to be associated with psychological stressors. The presentation of conversion symptoms mimics a broad spectrum of neurological diseases. The symptoms were initially described in the context of hysteria, and have always been subject to debate and conceptual confusion. The debates are in the manner in which the disorder is classified within the two major current nosologies: in the DSM-IV (American Psychiatric Association, 1994) CD it i listed as a type of somatoform disorder; In the ICD-10 (World Health Organization, 1992) it is given as a dissociative disorder. This article follows the DSM-IV criteria to describe the context of hypnosis in the treatment of the disorder. However in the theoretical review the article presents arguments for a dissociative classification. ...

Hysteria has been the subject of controversy for many years, with theorists arguing about whether it is best explained by a hidden organic cause or by malingering and deception. However, it has been shown that hysterical paralysis cannot be explained in any of these terms. With the recent development of cognitive psychiatry, one may understand psychiatric and organic delusions within the same conceptual framework. Here I contrast hysterical conversion with anosognosia. They are indeed remarkably similar, though the content of their (...) respective delusions is the opposite. In hysterical paralysis, patients are not aware of their preserved ability, whereas in anosognosia for hemiplegia, patients are not aware of their disability. Four main explanations have been provided to account for anosognosia: metacognitive, attentional, motor, and motivational views. I will apply each of these accounts to hysterical paralysis and show that, at each level, hysterical conversion is the reverse of ...
This is a pilot, prospective, single center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, that assesses the number of NES in patients treated with flexible dose sertraline (Zoloft). This study will provide outcomes data and the effect size necessary for a future R01, multi-center randomized control trial. Secondary objective variables include reduction in depression, anxiety, impulsivity scores, and improvement in psychosocial functioning.. After being diagnosed with NES by video electroencephalogram monitoring (vEEG), up to 50 participants will be enrolled and monitored during a two week lead in period for their baseline NES and psychosocial symptoms and functioning. At week 2, they will be blindly randomized to the treatment arm with flexible dose sertraline (25 to 200mg) or to the placebo control arm. The dose will be titrated over 4 weeks up to 200mg or to dose limited by side effects. The subjects will stay on their maximum fixed dose for the next 4 weeks. At week 10, the subjects ...
Conversion reaction is, you know, in the old day, people would get paralysis or blindness. Its a way of expressing emotional turmoil through physical symptoms. And it can happen in a group. It can be contagious. I mean, some people speculate its the basis of the Salem witch trial. That was a group that was having a mass hysteria. But it just didnt pass the sniff test for me, particularly some of the girls I met, like Thera. It seemed so clearly biological. It seemed -- it just seemed.

Theres only one problem. Sodium-ion batteries do not perform as well or as long as their lithium ion cousins - yet. That may be changing, however, as research into sodium-ion batteries continues. Professor Jong Min Yuk and a team of scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology report they have made significant progress toward creating high performing sodium-ion batteries by experimenting with copper sulfide electrodes. Their research was published recently in the journal Advanced Science.. Researchers presented a new strategy for extending sodium-ion batteries cyclability using copper sulfide as the electrode material. This strategy has led to high-performance conversion reactions and is expected to advance the commercialization of sodium-ion batteries as they emerge as an alternative to lithium ion batteries.. The research confirmed that copper sulfide is a superior electrode material that is pulverization-tolerant and induces capacity recovery. Using them should allow ...
In order to address power and energy demands of mobile electronics and electric cars, Li-ion technology is urgently being optimized by using alternative materials. This article presents a review of our recent progress dedicated to the anode and cathode materials that have the potential to fulfil the crucial factors of cost, safety, lifetime, durability, power density, and energy density. Nanostructured inorganic compounds have been extensively investigated. Size effects revealed in the storage of lithium through micropores (hard carbon spheres), alloys (Si, SnSb), and conversion reactions (Cr2O3, MnO) are studied. The formation of nano/micro core-shell, dispersed composite, and surface pinning structures can improve their cycling performance. Surface coating on LiCoO2 and LiMn2O4 was found to be an effective way to enhance their thermal and chemical stability and the mechanisms are discussed. Theoretical simulations and experiments on LiFePO4 reveal that alkali metal ions and nitrogen doping ...
I am a 50 year old woman recently diagnosed with non-epileptic seizures. BUT, I have no history of mental illness, no past traumatic experience -- no reason to be experiencing these seizures for psychological reasons. II am happily married for 29 years, have three happy and successful children, I love my job, and feel happy and well adjusted. In addition to the seizues, I constantly feel off-balance. I have a slight tremor, sometimes noticeable, but most of the time inside my body when I move around. As long as I stay fairly quiet and immobile, I am okay. I feel extremely cold, but only in spells, and I also have spells of extreme exhaustion. My MRI showed only one small patch of white matter noted as insignificant. I was referred to a psychiatrist who put me on Pristiq even though I do not feel ANY signs of depression and also Clorazipan for anxiety even though I dont feel anxious. Neither of these seem to be helping although I have only been on them for three weeks. I find many other possible ...
This case report describes one of the countless examples of a tragic outcome for an inherited metabolic disorder because of late diagnosis. This fact is additionally painful because the cooccurrence in two siblings of similar symptoms lasting for years did not lead to the correct diagnosis in time.. The story underlines the necessity of including the measurement of total homocysteine in all patients with unexplained neurological symptoms, particularly because metabolic disorders associated with hyperhomocysteinemia are treatable. Because of the low incidence of inherited metabolic diseases and the related limited experience with them by the majority of physicians, physicians often consider metabolic diseases at the end of the list of differential diagnoses. There are other classic reasons for the delayed diagnosis of diseases associated with hyperhomocysteinemia. There is limited knowledge that homocysteine, as a marker of several diseases, should be included in metabolic screenings (as done ...
HYSTERIA, a term applied to an affection which may manifest itself by a variety of symptoms, and which depends upon a disordered condition of the highest nervous centres. It is characterized by psychical peculiarities, while in addition there is often derangement of the functions subserved by the lower cerebral and spinal centres. Histological examination of the nervous system has failed to disclose associated structural alterations.. By the ancients and by modern physicians down to the time of Sydenham the symptoms of hysteria were supposed to be directly due to disturbances of the uterus (Gr. barEpa, whence the name). This view is now universally recognized to be erroneous. The term "functional" is often used by English neurologists as synonymous with hysterical, a nomenclature which is tentatively advantageous since it is at least non-committal. P. J. Mains has defined hysteria as "a state in which ideas control the body and produce morbid changes in its functions." P. Janet, who has done ...

TIP OF THE WEEK: The reason why I overhauled my rate sheet is because I put a bid in for a project recently and was told that it was "outrageous". Submitting an appropriate bid in the voiceover industry can be a bit of a sticky wicket. There are so many different kinds of VO gigs and the rate can be determined by the word, the page, the minute, or the hour. You also have to take into account whether youre recording from your home or a remote studio. If you record from home, you may be asked to edit it, add music, add sound effects, etc. On top of all that, the rates change depending on the location (local, regional, national). Thats a lot to take into account ...

Mass hysteria is characterized by the rapid spread of conversion disorder, a condition involving the appearance of bodily complaints for which there is no organic basis. In such episodes, psychological distress is converted or channeled into physical symptoms. There are two common types: anxiety hysteria and motor hysteria. The former is of shorter duration, usually lasting a day, and is triggered by the sudden perception of a threatening agent, most commonly a strange odor. Symptoms typically include headache, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, and general weakness. Motor hysteria is prevalent in intolerable social situations such as strict school and religious settings where discipline is excessive. Symptoms include trance-like states, melodramatic acts of rebellion known as histrionics, and what physicians term "psychomotor agitation" (whereby pent-up anxiety built up over a long period results in disruptions to the nerves or neurons that send messages to the muscles, triggering temporary ...
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) is best known as the Father of Psychoanalysis. An Austrian neurologist, Dr. Freud developed his theory of psychoanalysis in the 1890s as a way to treat his patients with symptoms of hysteria. He worked with Dr. Josef Breuer during that time in treating a female patient with a conversion disorder, with the use of psychoanalytic methods. Although Freuds theories have been controversial through the years, his pioneering work laid the foundation for modern psychology. Sigmund Freud was convinced that sexual conflicts and issues were related to most psychological problems. His work with the unconscious mind, the use of defense mechanisms, the sexual stages of development, and the different aspects of the psyche-the id, the ego, and the superego-were ground breaking and became the basic tenets of his psychoanalytic theory.. ...
With about 100 cases studies, the incidence of the disorder is not precisely known.[9] Individuals of multiple backgrounds have been reported as having the disorder. The syndrome tends to be more common in men (75%), with a male to female ratio of 4:1.[1] It has been most frequently seen in individuals ages 15 to 40 and has also been observed in children.[10] This wide age range is derived from case studies, and therefore may not be an accurate estimate. Ganser syndrome has also been observed in groups other than prison populations.[11] To date, no definitive cause or reason of the disorder has been established.[12] The sources that classify the syndrome as a dissociative disorder[6] or a factitious disorder, conflict in their proposed etiologies. As a result, there are a number of theories as to why the syndrome develops. Ganser syndrome was previously classified as a factitious disorder, explaining the symptoms as mimicking of what patients perceive as typical of a psychosis, even though they ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Behavior Modification of Nanostructured PbO₂ Electrodes in Lead Acid Batteries Changing Electrolyte Concentration and Separator. AU - Inguanta, Rosalinda. AU - Sunseri, Carmelo. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - Currently, lead acid battery is extensively investigated owing to its prevalent use as a starting-lighting and ignition device. An essential role for electrochemical reactions is played by the surface area available for conversion reactions and a possible approach is the use of nanostructured electrodes. In this work, lead dioxide nanostructured electrodes were tested in order to investigate the dependence of the charge and discharge behaviour on some parameters such as electrolyte concentration, and a new type of thin separator. In this last case, it is possible to reduce the size of the cell by using a very thin separator comparable to the nanostructured electrode thickness. Besides, a low concentration of electrolyte was also tested for studying its influence on the ...

The teenager, who had earlier performed for Punjab on the U-14, U-16 and U-19 ranges, made the change to Chandigarh this season and has taken a complete of 63 wickets in U-23 and U-19 cricket. She had taken a hat-trick towards Arunachal Pradesh in BCCI U-23 T20 Trophy too. Six of her wickets on Tuesday had been LBWs whereas the opposite 4 had been bowled.. "When Kashvee came to my academy, she had the natural ability to swing the ball. We worked on improving her action as she would fall away and her wrist position was also not correct. Once we did that, she would practice bowling at the fourth stump spot for 7-8 overs daily. I would send her videos of Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar daily. She has worked a lot on her fitness in the last two years and it is helping her bowling," shared Gupta, a BCCI Level-2 coach..

The great regions of the mind correspond to the great regions of the brain.Paul Broca… the master unsolved problem of biology: how the hundred million nerve cells of the brain work together to create consciousness …E.O. Wilson, Consilience, 1998Here is one view of the relationship between medicine and psychiatry. Physicians study, diagnose, and treat disorders of the body; psychiatrists (by contrast) study, diagnose, and treat disorders of the mind. Medicine has to do mainly with processes in objects, such as the circulation of blood to the kidneys; psychiatrists concern themselves mainly with the experiences of subjects, such as auditory hallucinations. Medical disorders are organic; psychiatric disorders are functional. Medicine is mainly a science; psychiatry mainly an art. The brain, on this view, occupies an ambiguous position, poised between body and mind: it is an ambiguous intermediary, a skilful interpreter between the languages of mind and body. Nevertheless, disorders of body and
Pain that is experienced in the absence of a noxious stimulus or pathological change is often labelled functional. Clinical examples include atypical facial pain or some low back pains where the pain persists long after injuries have healed. In many cases it is difficult to exclude all physical explanations, but in the absence of other explanations these pains are often labelled imagined or all in the mind. These types of pain, truly felt but in the absence of an identifiable physical cause, have been the topic of a number of interesting investigations involving hypnosis.. Whalley & Oakley (2003) have recently shown that some highly hypnotisable individuals are able to experience a painfully hot sensation in the absence of a noxious physical stimulus.. Derbyshire, Whalley, Stenger & Oakley (2004) conducted an fMRI investigation in which hypnotically hallucinated (HI) pain was compared with a 48.5ºc painful heat induced by a thermal probe (PI). In a final condition participants were ...
Nonepileptic seizures under levetiracetam therapy: a case report of forced normalization process Francesca Anzellotti, Raffaella Franciotti, Holta Zhuzhuni, Aurelio D'Amico, Astrid Thomas, Marco Onofrj Department of Neuroscience and Imaging, Aging Research Centre, Gabriele d'Annunzio University Foundation, Gabriele d'Annunzio University, Chieti, Italy Abstract: Nonepileptic seizures (NES) apparently look like epileptic seizures, but are not associated with ictal electrical discharges in the brain. NES constitute one of the most important differential diagnoses of epilepsy. They have been recognized as a distinctive clinical phenomenon for centuries, and video/electroencephalogram monitoring has allowed clinicians to make near-certain diagnoses. NES are supposedly unrelated to organic brain lesions, and despite the preponderance of a psychiatric/psychological context, they may have an iatrogenic origin. We report a patient with NES precipitated by levetiracetam therapy; in this case, NES was
The ever-increasing energy demand requires renewable energy schemes with low environmental impacts. Electrochemical energy conversion devices, such as fuel cells, combine fuel oxidization and oxygen reduction reactions and have been studied extensively for renewable energy applications. However, their energy conversion efficiency is often limited by kinetically sluggish chemical conversion reactions, especially oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). [1-5] To date, extensive efforts have been put into developing efficient ORR catalysts with controls on catalyst sizes, compositions, shapes and structures. [6-12] Recently, Pt-based catalysts with core/shell and one-dimensional nanowire (NW) morphologies were found to be promising to further enhance ORR catalysis. With the core/shell structure, the ORR catalysis of a nanoparticle (NP) catalyst can be tuned by both electronic and geometric effects at the core/shell interface. [10,13,14] With the NW structure, the catalyst interaction with the conductive ...
Findings from a team of Dutch and American researchers indicate that people with BPD have symptoms that partially overlap with somatoform disorders, although there are key differences. The study, published in the March 2015 issue of Borderline Personality Disorder and Emotional Dysregulation, compared emotional and relationship stability problems in people with BPD versus people with somatoform disorders.5. Of 472 adult participants, an estimated 25% were diagnosed with BPD and about 33% were diagnosed with a somatoform disorder. An additional 25% had a combined diagnosis of BPD and a somatoform disorder, while the remaining individuals had mental health problems unrelated to BPD or somatoform disorders. The goal of the study was to assess whether emotional control and relationship stability problems linked to both or either disorder were associated with any degree of poor bonding attachment during childhood and the formation of anxiety-based or avoidance-based relationships in ...
Eekels JJM et al. Essentials A pilot study for External Quality Assessment for testing of HIT is described. The qualitative accordance for the PF4/heparin IgG test was 97.6%. The qualitative accordance for functional HIT tests was considerably lower. External Quality Assessment for functional HIT tests is required. SUMMARY: Objective Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a potentially life-threatening complication of heparin exposure. Diagnosis is most reliable using a combination of an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) that detects antibodies against platelet factor 4 (PF4)/heparin complexes (antigen assay) and a functional assay that detects platelet-activating properties of the pathogenic HIT antibodies. No External Quality Assessment (EQA) is available for a combination of the tests. Here we report on the results of the first international EQA. Methods The pilot EQA was organized by the Department of Transfusion Medicine, Universitätsmedizin Greifswald, Germany. Six serum samples of ...

The somatoform disorders are a group of psychological disorders in which a patient experiences physical symptoms that are inconsistent with or cannot be fully explained by any underlying general medical or neurologic condition. Medically unexplained physical symptoms account for as many as 50% of new medical outpatient visits.
Objective: assessment of somatoform disorder (SFMD) prevalence and impact in PD and DLB. Methods: SFMD were assessed by direct observation of symptoms in the year coincident (±6 months) with definite diagnosis of PD, DLB, AD, MSA, PSP, FTD and by interviews with patients, caregivers, General Practitioners (GPs), reviews of prior hospital admissions, in a cohort of 942 patients with neurodegenerative disorders. Matched groups of PD and DLB patients without vs. with SFMD were selected for comparisons and followed-up over 4 years. Results: The frequency of SFMD was higher in DLB (15 patients, 12%) and PD (29 patients, 7%) than in other neurodegenerative diseases (0-3%). SFMD consisted of conversion motor or sensory disorders, often accompanied by delusional thought content; in one patient catatonic symptoms were observed concomitantly with PD diagnosis. Evidence of SFMD symptoms, preceding diagnosis by 6 months-10 years was obtained in 28 PD and all DLB patients. 22 PD patients and all DLB ...
