Validity and usefulness of the Wisconsin Manual for Assessing Psychotic-like Experiences. (1/323)

The Wisconsin Manual for Assessing Psychotic-like Experiences is an interview-based assessment system for rating psychotic and psychotic-like symptoms on a continuum of deviancy from normal to grossly psychotic. The original manual contained six scales, assessing thought transmission, passivity experiences, thought withdrawal, auditory experiences, personally relevant aberrant beliefs, and visual experiences. A seventh scale assessing deviant olfactory experiences was subsequently added. The rating scales have good interrater reliability when used by trained raters. Cross-sectional studies indicated that the frequency and deviancy of psychotic-like experiences are elevated among college students who were identified, hypothetically, as psychosis prone by other criteria. Psychotic-like experiences of moderate deviancy in college students successfully predicted the development of psychotic illness and poorer overall adjustment 10 years later. The manual is useful for identifying psychosis-prone individuals and is recommended for use in linkage and treatment outcome studies. The present article provides an interview schedule for collecting information required for rating psychotic-like experiences.  (+info)

Acute psychotic symptoms induced by topiramate. (2/323)

The incidence of psychosis during clinical trials of topiramate was 0.8%, not significantly different from the rate for placebo or reported rates of psychosis in patients with refractory epilepsy. We observed psychotic symptoms in five patients soon after initiation of topiramate therapy. We performed a retrospective chart review of the first 80 patients who began on topiramate after approval for clinical use, between January and April 1997. Symptoms suggestive of psychosis, including hallucinations and delusions, were sought for analysis. Cognitive effects such as psychomotor slowing, confusion, and somnolence were not included. Five patients developed definite psychotic symptoms 2 to 46 days after beginning topiramate. Dosages at symptom onset were 50-400 mg/day. Symptoms included paranoid delusions in four patients and auditory hallucinations in three. Symptoms of psychosis and other psychiatric symptoms resolved quickly with discontinuation of topiramate in three patients, dose reduction from 300 to 200 mg/day in one and with inpatient treatment and neuroleptics in another. One patient had a history of auditory hallucinations, one of aggressive and suicidal thoughts, but three had no significant psychiatric history. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of psychotic symptoms, even in patients without a previous psychiatric history, when prescribing topiramate. Symptoms resolve quickly with discontinuation.  (+info)

Measurement of delusional ideation in the normal population: introducing the PDI (Peters et al. Delusions Inventory). (3/323)

The Peters et al. Delusions Inventory (PDI) was designed to measure delusional ideation in the normal population, using the Present State Examination as a template. The multidimensionality of delusions was incorporated by assessing measures of distress, preoccupation, and conviction. Individual items were endorsed by one in four adults on average. No sex differences were found, and an inverse relationship with age was obtained. Good internal consistency was found, and its concurrent validity was confirmed by the percentages of common variance with three scales measuring schizotypy, magical ideation, and delusions. PDI scores up to 1 year later remained consistent, establishing its test-retest reliability. Psychotic inpatients had significantly higher scores, establishing its criterion validity. The ranges of scores between the normal and deluded groups overlapped considerably, consistent with the continuity view of psychosis. The two samples were differentiated by their ratings on the distress, preoccupation, and conviction scales, confirming the necessity for a multidimensional analysis of delusional thinking. Possible avenues of research using this scale and its clinical utility are highlighted.  (+info)

Genetic variants of dopamine receptor D4 and psychopathology. (4/323)

There is much evidence to indicate that the dopamine receptor D4 (DRD4) gene is involved in psychiatric disorders. We investigated the correlation between DRD4 gene polymorphism and the psychopathology of major psychoses, independently of diagnoses. Some 461 inpatients affected by major psychoses were assessed by the Operational Criteria checklist for psychotic illness and typed for DRD4 variants. The four symptomatologic factors-mania, depression, delusion, and disorganization-were used as phenotype definitions. DRD4 Exon 3 long allele variants were associated with high delusional scores, with the most significant difference between alleles 2 and 7 (p = 0.004). DRD4 variants may, therefore, constitute a liability factor for development of delusional symptomatology in patients with major psychoses.  (+info)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder and delusions revisited. (5/323)

BACKGROUND: The concept of fixed, unshakeable (delusional) beliefs within the context of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one that has received varying amounts of attention in the literature, and has not yet received universal acknowledgement. There are good grounds for including these cases within the diagnostic concepts of OCD, with significant implications for clinical management. AIMS: To present cases with unusual OCD, in order to re-evaluate the issue of delusions and OCD. METHOD: The cases of five subjects with delusions in the course of obsessive-compulsive disorder are presented to illustrate 'delusional' OCD. The management and outcome of these cases are discussed. RESULTS: Fixity and bizarreness of beliefs in OCD occur on a continuum from 'none' to 'delusional intensity' and may fluctuate within subjects. CONCLUSIONS: The idea that these cases may represent a form of OCD has implications for management, as, if this is correct, they should be able to respond to appropriate behavioural and/or pharmacological strategies used in OCD.  (+info)

Risk factors for the deficit syndrome of schizophrenia. (6/323)

Previous studies have found two risk factors associated with the deficit syndrome of schizophrenia: an increase in summer births, compared to others with schizophrenia; and a higher risk of schizophrenia in relatives. In data from the Camberwell Register Psychosis Series, a population-based sample that approximated a treated-incidence sample, the deficit/nondeficit categorization was made using a previously validated proxy method. Associations were found between the deficit syndrome and both summer birth and a family history of schizophrenia. In contrast, nondeficit schizophrenia was associated with a family history of psychiatric problems other than schizophrenia. The deficit group also had poorer insight. An early age of onset was associated with disorganization, but not with the deficit or nondeficit group. The deficit/nondeficit differences could not be attributed to confounding by demographic features or the severity of hallucinations, delusions, or formal thought disorder.  (+info)

Cerebral correlates of psychotic symptoms in Alzheimer's disease. (7/323)

BACKGROUND: Psychotic symptoms are produced by distributed neuronal dysfunction. Abnormalities of reality testing and false inference implicate frontal lobe abnormalities. OBJECTIVES: To identify the functional imaging profile of patients with Alzheimer's disease manifesting psychotic symptoms as measured by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). METHODS: Twenty patients with Alzheimer's disease who had SPECT and clinical evaluations were divided into two equal groups with similar mini mental status examination (MMSE), age, sex, and the range of behaviours documented by the neuropsychiatric inventory (NPI), except delusions and hallucinations. SPECT studies, registered to a probabilistic anatomical atlas, were normalised across the combined group mean intensity level, and subjected to a voxel by voxel subtraction of the non-psychotic minus psychotic groups. Subvolume thresholding (SVT) corrected random lobar noise to produce a three dimensional functional significance map. RESULTS: The significance map showed lower regional perfusion in the right and left dorsolateral frontal, left anterior cingulate, and left ventral striatal regions along with the left pulvinar and dorsolateral parietal cortex, in the psychotic versus non-psychotic group. CONCLUSION: Patients with Alzheimer's disease who manifest psychosis may have disproportionate dysfunction of frontal lobes and related subcortical and parietal structures.  (+info)

Hallucinations, delusions, and cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease. (8/323)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the occurrence of hallucinations and delusions in Alzheimer's disease over a 4 year period and their association with rate of cognitive decline. METHODS: A cohort of 410 persons with clinically diagnosed Alzheimer's disease underwent annual clinical evaluations over a 4 year period. Participation in follow up exceeded 90% in survivors. Evaluations included structured informant interview, from which the presence or absence of hallucinations and delusions was ascertained, and detailed testing of cognitive function. The primary cognitive outcome measure was a composite cognitive score based on 17 individual performance tests. The mini mental state examination (MMSE) and summary measures of memory, visuoconstruction, repetition, and naming were used in secondary analyses. RESULTS: At baseline, hallucinations (present in 41%) and delusions (present in 55%) were common and associated with lower cognitive function. In analyses that controlled for baseline level of cognitive function, demographic variables, parkinsonism, and use of antipsychotic medications, hallucinations, but not delusions, were associated with more rapid cognitive decline on each cognitive measure. In the primary model, there was a 47% increase in the average annual rate of decline on a composite cognitive measure in those with baseline hallucinations compared with those without them. This effect was mainly due to a subgroup with both auditory and visual hallucinations. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that the presence of hallucinations is selectively associated with more rapid cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

In a recent theoretical account of persecutory delusions, it is suggested that anxiety and worry are important factors in paranoid experience [Freeman, D., Garety, P. A., Kuipers, E., Fowler, D., & Bebbington, P. E. (2002). A cognitive model of persecutory delusions. British Journal of Clinical Psychology, 41(4), 331-347]. In emotional disorders worry has been understood in terms of catastrophising. In the current study, the concept of catastrophising is applied for the first time with persecutory delusions. Thirty individuals with current persecutory delusions and 30 non-clinical controls participated in a cross-sectional study. The group with persecutory delusions was also followed up at 3 months to assess predictors of delusion persistence. At its most severe, 21% of individuals with persecutory delusions had clinical worry, 68% had levels of worry comparable with treatment seeking GAD patients. Further, high levels of anxiety, worry and catastrophising were associated with high levels of persecutory
Persecutory delusions are one of the most common and distressing symptoms of psychosis. Many studies indicate an association of persecutory delusions with depression. A direct role for depression-related cognitive factors in the maintenance of persecutory delusions has not been systematically examined, despite such processes being implicated in a cognitive model. To determine whether depression in people with persecutory delusions is associated with the same cognitive factors implicated in major depressive disorder, and to examine these factors as predictors of the persistence of persecutory delusions over time. A systematic literature review formed the basis of two linked studies: one cross-sectional and one longitudinal. In the first study, 60 participants with persecutory delusions and schizophrenia spectrum diagnoses were classified into two groups, according to whether or not they met ICD-10 criteria for major depression. Assessments were made of delusions, depression and key cognitive ...
I discuss three approaches to delusion formation, broadly construed: the one-factor and two-factor versions of empiricism, and rationalism. According to empiricist accounts of delusion formation, delusions are responses to unusual experiences. Within the empiricist camp, one might be a one-factor or two-factor theorist. One-factor accounts have it that subjects form delusions on the basis of an anomalous experience, such that there is no abnormal deficit in her mechanisms of belief formation, the psychology thereof is within the normal range of human psychology. Two-factor accounts on the other hand claim that there are two factors we need to appeal to in explaining why a subject comes to hold a delusional belief. The first factor is the anomalous experience, but this is not sufficient. The subject, as well as undergoing an anomalous experience, also has an abnormal deficit or bias in her belief formation mechanisms, and it is this deficit or bias, as well as the anomalous experience, which ...
Persecutory delusion is characterized by thinking disorder. It is expressed in false ideas which capture consciousness of patient. False ideas are not subjected to external correction, despite the unreality. Changed logic is at the bottom of ideas. Often persecutory delusion complex accompanies a serious mental disease (for example, schizophrenia), an alcoholic abstinence or intoxication, but can be an independent disorder.. Diagnostics. Typical symptoms of persecutory delusion:. - The patient invents a plenty of facts about the reality surrounding him.. - Gross violations of social adaptation.. - Corrective actions are not effective.. The essence of crazy ideas consists in prosecution of patient with someone from his environment, one person or group, with the hostile, negative purpose.. The delusion is expressed in various forms. If the patient in detail tells about prosecution, its purpose, start date, agents, results, such delusion possesses the high level of systematization.. Systematization ...
The Abraham Dilemma: A Divine Delusion focuses on the topic of religious delusion - on the disorders causes, contents, consequences, diagnosis and treatment. The title argues that we cannot understand a religious delusion without appreciating three facts. One is that religiosity or spirituality is a part of human nature, whether it takes theistic or non-theistic forms. Another is that religious delusion is something to which we are all vulnerable. The third is that the delusion is not best understood by reducing it to brain chemistry, or by insisting that it is empirically false. It is best understood by examining its harmful personal and moral consequences - consequences that nearly unfolded when the biblical patriarch Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac in response to a command, he thought, from God.
Purpose: Persecutory delusions are a central psychotic experience, at the severe end of a paranoia spectrum in the general population. The aim of the review is to provide an introduction to the understanding of persecutory delusions, highlight key putative causal factors that have the potential to be translated into efficacious treatment, and indicate future research directions. Methods: A narrative literature review was undertaken to highlight the main recent areas of empirical study concerning non-clinical and clinical paranoia. Results: Six main proximal causal factors are identified: a worry thinking style, negative beliefs about the self, interpersonal sensitivity, sleep disturbance, anomalous internal experience, and reasoning biases. Each has plausible mechanistic links to the occurrence of paranoia. These causal factors may be influenced by a number of social circumstances, including adverse events, illicit drug use, and urban environments. Conclusions: There have been numerous replicated

Schizophrenia Schizophrenia is a mental disorder distinguished by a loss of contact with reality and the occurrence of psychotic behaviors, including hallucinations and delusions (unreal beliefs which endure even when there is contrary evidence).[22] Delusions may include the false and constant idea that the person is being followed or poisoned, or that the persons thoughts are being broadcast for others to listen to. Delusions in schizophrenia often develop as a response to the individual attempting to explain their hallucinations.[22] Patients who experience recurrent auditory hallucinations can develop the delusion that other people are scheming against them and are dishonest when they say they do not hear the voices that the delusioned person believes that he or she hears.[22] Specifically, grandiose delusions are frequently found predominantly in paranoid schizophrenia, in which a person has an extremely exaggerated sense of his or her significance, personality, knowledge, or authority. ...

When my kidneys failed after a surgery I experienced renal psychosis complete with visual and auditory hallucinations. Nothing anyone told me was more persuasive than the delusions I witnessed with my own eyes. When people argued with me, it was so frustrating because I knew what they said was false. After all, I saw with my own eyes and heard with my own ears a far different truth. To this day, what I remember from those days are the delusions which are all that feels real. I do not remember what actually happened. As the wash of chemicals that flooded my system when my kidneys shut down were flushed away, I returned to reality and recognized the delusions for what they were, but they remain vivid visual memories. If that kind of delusion is what drives Nora, there is nothing we can do other than hope she finds a good doctor who will serve her well. We cannot help her ...
Most aspects of standard definitions have exceptions on which clinicians in practice agree. The notion that delusions like other psychotic phenomena are best viewed as lying on a continuum with normal beliefs is appealing but flawed (David, 2010). Delusions are multiply determined with many typical features but none essential and / or invariable. Delusions are more than the sum of their epistemic features. They are clinical phenomena that require a huge amount of contextual information before they can be understood (or before it can be concluded that they are un-understandable!). Sometimes a statement that would only be weakly eligible to be called a delusion, passes this threshold because the person expressing the utterance shows evidence of psychosis on other grounds. This reverse reasoning would be wholly inadmissible epistemologically but is perfectly acceptable and indeed sensible in a clinical context. ...
563). The symptoms of schizophrenia can be characterized into two different categories: positive and negative symptoms.Positive symptoms reflect an excess or distortion of normal functioning (Hockenbury & Hockenbury, 2011, p. 563). Positive symptoms add to the persons everyday life by way of hallucinations, delusions, and severely disorganized thought processes, speech, and behavior. Delusions are a false belief that continues despite overwhelming contradictory evidence.. Schizophrenic delusions are often far-fetched and nonsensical notions, not simply inaccurate beliefs. The person may believe that aliens are attempting to abduct them. This delusion would fall under the delusions of being controlled category.There are also delusions of persecution and delusions of reference. Some people have delusions of grandeur in which they believe they are extremely important, powerful, or wealthy.. Identifying with biblical characters is a common delusion of grandeur.

Intrusive mental imagery and negative beliefs about self and others are frequently reported problems for individuals who experience psychosis, but there are few treatment approaches that have specifically targeted these. Intrusive mental images and negative schema have been identified as potential maintaining factors for persecutory delusions. These can range from paranoia-related recurrent intrusive images (e.g., being attacked by others, being followed by unknown figures who mean you harm) from the past or flash-forward future paranoia related intrusive mental images. In this article we outline clinical issues and adaptations of an imagery-focused approach for persecutory delusions. Drawing on a number of sources including a systematic literature review, a qualitative study exploring core beliefs, an experience sampling study and techniques from existing manuals and approaches, we adapted these imagery approaches to work with images and schema. The close links between imagery and core ...
Legally relevant lying is an intentional attempt to convince another of the truth of a proposition the liar believes to be false. Delusion is an unintentional product of impaired reality testing that occurs in a range of psychiatric conditions and psychological states, some of which could be clinically subtle, since deception, truth and delusion differ in the intent rather than reality testing criterion. Deception and delusion are influenced by the degree of congruence between subjective and objective reality and are probably mutually exclusive. Thus, a delusion could lead to an objectively false statement, that could nevertheless be subjectively true and indistinguishable from truth by its psychophysiological (i.e., the polygraph) signature. This article presents a relevant case as a starting point of an examination of the current and future role of neurophysiological (i.e., functional brain imaging) measurements in the detection of deception. The authors incorporate the recent data on functional brain
Clinically Messianic delusion is expressed by ideas of greatness, assignment of supernatural powers, in combination with correct perception of own person. In severe cases the idea of full transformation in divine persons prevails. The Messianic delusion displays the religious subject which developed in this population. Men dont identify themselves with female images, women sometimes appropriate male qualities.. Patients have ideas about special mission assigned to them, fight against the evil, human salvation. There are ideas of communication with supernatural force (mystical delusion), ideas about association of the people, world reorganization. It occurs against perked up mood, even ecstasy, feeling full of energy.. Messianic delusion has features depending on main disease state of patient. More often it arises against continuous paranoid schizophrenia. In childhood such patients were isolated, unsociable, preferred society of adults. At the general asthenic state working capacity gradually ...
More than thirty years ago, Freud inaugurated a new approach to the understanding of the structure of delusions. He used Schrebers Autobiography mainly for the elucidation of two theories: 1, delusion is a defense against homosexuality; 2, delusion is an attempt at restitution.. The same material Freud used can be taken for further investigation. The following is a review of Schrebers basic conflict which led to his idea that the world was lost. Only the function of this idea, namely, the warding off of a danger, will be discussed in this paper. The mechanism, the structure of this idea, or of the delusion in general, will not be considered.. Schrebers illness may be divided into several periods. It started with a prepsychotic phase in which his whole personality was already changed but no psychotic symptoms were present.

This paper argues that duality accounts of time, as exemplified by Henri Bergsons, Edmund Husserls, and John McTaggarts ideas, parallel the decomposition of temporal experience in depressive psychosis into objective and subjective dimensions of time. The paper also proposes to comprehend the full-fledged depressive temporal delusion, in which the subjective flow of time comes to a standstill, via the idea of a double orientation to reality characteristic of schizophrenic delusions. In the depressive temporal delusion a person claims that time is not moving while simultaneously her cognitive orientation in temporal surroundings remains largely unaffected, hence the double orientation. The juxtaposition of temporal experience in depression with the temporal disorientation in dementia enables us to situate the depressive delusion regarding the flow of time in the middle of a proposed scale of the disintegration of normal temporal experience ...

We all suffer from one form of delusion or the other, you may think you dont and believe delusion is exhibited by only those with mental illness. If only you were what Dianetics call the clear then you must be aware of your areas of delusion and worked on them. Delusion is something people dont…
A delusion is a firmly-held belief that no amount of evidence or logic can contradict. There are many types of delusions, including grandiose delusions.. Thinking you are the greatest person ever is one thing, but acting like the greatest person ever is a little different.. For example, lets consider a music teacher who has feelings of grandiosity during a hypomanic episode stemming from bipolar disorder. She thinks she can play piano better than anyone else. She shows off for her students and even tells them they could only dream of being as good as her. Her self-confidence, self-importance and sense of pride are all off the charts. She is feeling grandiose due to her hypomania.. Now lets consider the music teacher during a grandiose delusion. She believes she is the best piano player in the world. She raises her rates to reflect this fact. She turns down invitations to play at small venues because these are beneath her and she should, in fact, be playing at huge concert halls. She is ...
Delusions Of Grandeur Essay, Research Paper Delusions of grandeur and failure to accept reality can be very detrimental to not only an individual, but also to those around him. In Arthur Millers Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman suffers from these delusions. He lives in a parallel world to ours where facing reality never comes into play and spends his entire life in a childlike illusion.

Delusion is a common symptom of paranoid schizophrenia ICD10 F20.0, usually combined with hallucinations (either auditory - noises or voices, visual or other perceptions of smell or taste). The most common paranoid symptoms are delusions of persecution, reference, exalted birth, special mission, bodily change, or jealousy. It has been most impressing (and harrowing) to see these patients as a medical student in Vienna at Baumgartner Höhe. Of course I visited Berggasse 19 but there have been more pioneers in Vienna like Krafft-Ebing).. We are arriving now at my main question: What is the difference between delusion and a scientific hypothesis? This question stems from a recent appraisal of the TH17 revision of the TH1/TH2 hypothesis by Lawrence Steinman. ...

Cotard delusion is a rare mental illness in which the affected person holds the delusional belief that they are already dead, do not exist, are putrefying, or have lost their blood or internal organs. Statistical analysis of a hundred-patient cohort indicates that the denial of self-existence is a symptom present in 69% of the cases of Cotards syndrome; yet, paradoxically, 55% of the patients present delusions of immortality. In 1880, the neurologist Jules Cotard described the condition as Le délire des négations (The Delirium of Negation), a psychiatric syndrome of varied severity. A mild case is characterized by despair and self-loathing, while a severe case is characterized by intense delusions of negation and chronic psychiatric depression. The case of Mademoiselle X describes a woman who denied the existence of parts of her body and of her need to eat. She said that she was condemned to eternal damnation and therefore could not die a natural death. In the course of suffering The ...
Delusion paranoid - For what reason grandiose delusions and paranoid delusions dont go away? Brain disorder. Many general medical and psychiatric illnesses are life long, and the symptoms last forever. This is true for diabetes, high blood pressure, sickle cell anemia, and so on. Many psychiatric illnesses have symptoms that last the entire persons life. With continued treatment, symptoms can remain in remission. Please keep in mind that if a person has schizophrenia, treatment needs to be lifelong.
Grandiose Delusionsv(GD) are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, wealthy, or otherwise very powerful. The delusions are generally fantastic and typically have a supernatural, science-fictional, or religious theme. There is a relative lack of research into GD, in comparison to persecutory delusions and auditory hallucinations. About 10% of healthy people experience grandiose thoughts but do not meet full criteria for a diagnosis of GD ...
3. Many schizophrenic delusions can be explained by an extreme manifestation of religiosity/ spirituality. As Szasz famously said, If you talk to God, you are praying; if God talks to you you have schizophrenia. Both a belief in GOD and his ability to listen to our prayers (the religious belief) and the converse belief that God can talk to us , many times in symbolic ways, but sometimes in the form of actual auditory hallucinations are a manifestation of the same cognitive mechanism that attributes too much agency, causality and meaning. Many schizophrenics, indeed do suffer from delusion of Grandeur, whereby they think of themselves as GOD-like; or the delusion of persecution and paranoia whereby they are persecuted by Satan like evil figures. thus both hallucinations as well as the common delusions are explainable by the religiosity orientation. this time the GOD delusion is different - one believes that one is a god-head. In non-religious cultures, these being-GOD delusions may take the ...
Purpose:. The objective of this study is to enhance a form of nonpharmacological treatment of delusions in schizophrenia using neuromodulation, and confirm the effect using electroencephalogram (EEG) and behavioural measures (Whitman et al., in press; Whitman, Minz & Woodward, 2013). Specifically, transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) will be used to improve the outcome of participation in metacognitive training (MCT) for the treatment of psychosis.. MCT is a group-based program developed directly from current cognitive neuropsychiatry research findings on schizophrenia and psychosis. MCT shares knowledge gained in research labs to help individuals experiencing psychosis become more aware of the thinking patterns involved in their illness. The main purpose of the metacognitive training is to help people change the thinking patterns that cause delusions, thereby avoiding relapse into illness or reducing the impact of delusions (Moritz et al., 2014).. tACS is a non-invasive brain ...
Background: The Cotard delusion (CD) is one of a variety of narrowly defined monothematic delusions characterized by nihilistic beliefs about the bodys existence or life itself. The presence of CD within the context of schizophrenia is rare (Case: Mr. C is a 58-year-old veteran with a prior diagnosis of schizophrenia, who presented with CD in the context of significant depression, suicidal ideation, violence, and self-harm behavior. He perseverated in his belief that he was physically dead and possessed by demons for several weeks. This delusion was reinforced by his religious belief that life was an attribute of God, and by inference, he as a human, was dead. His condition gradually improved over the course of treatment with Divalproex and quetiapine with discussions about the rationale for his belief. Upon discharge, Mr. C. demonstrated awareness of his fixation on death and an ability to redirect himself.Discussion: This case highlights the need to better understand the co-occurrence of CD in
A delusion is a false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly held despite what almost everyone else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not ordinarily accepted by other members of the persons culture or subculture (i.e., it is not an article of religious faith). When a false belief involves a value judgement, it is regarded as a delusion only when the judgement is so extreme as to defy credibility. Delusional conviction can sometimes be inferred from an overvalued idea (in which case the individual has an unreasonable belief or idea but does not hold it as firmly as is the case with a delusion).[1][2][3]

New research from the University of Adelaide has delved into the reasons why some people are unable to break free of their delusions, despite overwhelming evidence explaining the delusion isnt real.. In a new paper published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, University of Adelaide philosopher Professor Philip Gerrans says dreams and delusions have a common link - they are associated with faulty reality testing in the brains higher order cognitive systems.. Normally this reality testing in the brain monitors a story telling system which generates a narrative of peoples experience, Professor Gerrans says.. A simple example of normal reality testing is the person who gets a headache, immediately thinks they might have a brain tumour, then dismisses that thought and moves on. Their story episode I might have brain cancer gets tested and quickly rejected.. In someone who has problems with reality testing, that story might persist and may even be elaborated and translated into ...
There is compelling evidence that hypnotic suggestions can be used to model clinical delusions in the laboratory. In two studies, we investigated the role that personality factors, delusion proneness and schizotypy, played in shaping such hypnotic models. In the first study, 398 participants were screened on measures of hypnotisability, delusion proneness, and schizotypy. Hypnotisability correlated with both delusion proneness and the cognitive-perceptual subscale of schizotypy. In the second study, 22 high and 20 low hypnotisable participants were given suggestions to model two content specific delusions: Frégoli (the belief that strangers are actually known people in disguise) and mirrored-self misidentification (the belief that ones reflection in the mirror is a stranger). Whereas high delusion proneness predicted which high hypnotisable participants responded to the suggestion for Frégoli delusion, hypnotisability scores predicted which high hypnotisable participants responded to the ...

To be diagnosed with delusional disorder, the delusion or delusions cannot be due to the effects of a drug, medication, or general medical condition, and delusional disorder cannot be diagnosed in an individual previously diagnosed with schizophrenia. A person with delusional disorder may be high functioning in daily life, and this disorder bears no relation to ones IQ. According to German psychiatrist Emil Kraepelin, patients with delusional disorder remain coherent, sensible and reasonable. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defines six subtypes of the disorder characterized as erotomanic (believes that someone is in love with him or her), grandiose (believes that he/she is the greatest, strongest, fastest, richest, and/or most intelligent person ever), jealous (believes that the love partner is cheating on him/her), persecutory (believes that someone is following him/her to do some harm in some way), somatic (believes that he/she has a disease or medical ...
The modern definition and Jaspers original criteria have been criticised,[by whom?] as counter-examples can be shown for every defining feature.. Studies on psychiatric patients show that delusions vary in intensity and conviction over time, which suggests that certainty and incorrigibility are not necessary components of a delusional belief.[26]. Delusions do not necessarily have to be false or incorrect inferences about external reality.[27] Some religious or spiritual beliefs by their nature may not be falsifiable, and hence cannot be described as false or incorrect, no matter whether the person holding these beliefs was diagnosed as delusional or not.[28]. In other situations the delusion may turn out to be true belief.[29] For example, in delusional jealousy, where a person believes that their partner is being unfaithful (and may even follow them into the bathroom believing them to be seeing their lover even during the briefest of partings), it may actually be true that the partner is ...
An epidemic terror seized upon the nations, wrote Charles Mackay in his 1841 masterpiece, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. It was a crime imputed with so much ease, and repelled with so much difficulty, that the powerful, whenever they wanted to ruin the weak, and could fix no other imputation upon them, had only to accuse them of witchcraft to ensure their destruction.. Sound familiar? Its a recurring theme. Theres always some specific group to blame for all our problems. Witches. Catholics. Jews. Freemasons. Reds.. And, lately, Them Russians.. The problem with popular delusions extends beyond their cultivation by the powerful to distract us from real problems. Such delusions can and often do escalate into panics far more dangerous than originally intended.. The purpose of the Russiagate probe is to convince us that the Russian state meddled in the 2016 US presidential election.. So far the evidence for that proposition boils down to some cheesy Facebook ads ...
Initially, this site was launched as a place where I can *treat PHP delusions*: disprove numerous fallacies and superstitions circulating in the PHP community. Eventually I learned that its not enough to disclose a misconception or a wrong practice - the right way should be shown as well, so for the time being I switched to writing educational articles. But seeing the same delusions expressed again and again on Stack Overflow or other forums around the Net, I decided to compile a sort of Top 10 list, the most frequent PHP delusions. Some of them are quite important, whereas others are but nitpicks. But they all indicate a *cargo cult programming*, a practice then someone mindlessly uses a code due to common belief/practice but dont really get the idea of it.

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 ...

The measures most frequently used to assess psychotic symptoms fail to reflect important dimensions. The Psychotic Symptom Rating Scale (PSYRATS) aims to capture the multidimensional nature of auditory hallucinations and delusions. Individuals (N = 276) who had recently relapsed with positive symptoms completed the auditory hallucinations and delusions PSYRATS scales. These scores were compared with the relevant items from the SAPS and PANSS, and with measures of current mood. Total scores and distribution of items of the PSYRATS scales are presented and correlated with other measures. Positive symptom items from the SAPS and PANSS reflected the more objective aspects of PSYRATS ratings of auditory hallucinations and delusions (frequency and conviction) but were relatively poor at measuring distress. A major strength of the PSYRATS scales is the specific measurement of the distress dimension of symptoms, which is a key target of psychological intervention. It is advised that the PSYRATS should not be

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.( 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:20-21). How is it that people all over the western world are participating in celebrations of perversion, marching in the streets with various sexual degenerates, allowing children to participate with adult men, in acts of depravity, and even pushing now, for pedophilia, and yet they do not believe they are evil, in fact they believe they are good?

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12). I am beginning to think that the long dreaded, God- sent delusion has already descended upon our generation. We are being judged by God, judicial blindness has come upon our generation, night has fallen and we have been deceived. Why do I think so? Just one example; Transgender Story Hour , is now widely considered a wholesome, family friendly event. The very idea that parents would allow transvestites, and other forms of sexual deviants to come into the children s portion of the all American small town library to read story books to little children is insane. A mere ten years ago the idea would have been scoffed at, as unworkable, even dangerous, and despicable, there is no way anyone in charge of a public library would ever allow ...
According to the cognitive model, preserving consistency is a priority for human cognition (Festinger, 1957). People have a general tendency to restore coherence between their views, and between their views and the views of others, when this is compromised. If a person finds herself in a state of extreme cognitive dissonance, she needs to validate her prior beliefs and offset the cognitive dissonance emerging from those beliefs and newly acquired information. Mood-congruent delusions in depression play this key role. In particular, they may offer validation for ones own intensively experienced guilt, shame, hopelessness, and dismay. The claim that one is being spied upon in ones own home - for example - matches the belief that one is not trustworthy and should be monitored at all times. Undoubtedly such delusions come with psychological costs. The delusional content is weaved with unpleasant, sometimes terrifying events, such as being watched, followed, or threatened. But, by reducing ...
I see articles arguing over whether the attack is Al Qaeda or ISIS. Whether this attack is typical of this group or that one. I have said this so many times that I am reluctant to say it again. The issue is not Boko Haram, Hamas, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Jamyat Islamia, or any other terrorist band. The issue is not Islamist extremism, or a nutty fringe of Islam. The threat we face comes from Islam and the progressive delusions that have allowed Islam to plant itself in our midsts and flourish, grow and operate with near impunity. My friends, as I have written many times (here, for example) progressivism will get you killed. Progressivism, also a totalitarian belief system, is clearly now the deadliest creed on the planet, and has formed a Molotov-Ribbentrop-type pact with Islam. Progressivism, above all, is about denying reality and promoting delusion ...

The thesis Auditory Hallucinations in Youth is about auditory hallucinations in children and adolescents (hereafter youth). Experiencing an auditory hallucination means that someone hears something in the absence of an identifiable stimulus (sound). Auditory hallucinations can differ from undefinable sounds or mumbling to hearing clear music and/or hearing voices whispering or shouting. In the case of hearing voices, this is also called auditory verbal hallucinations. Previous research points to the frequent occurrence of auditory hallucinations. However, prevalence rates varied widely. Auditory hallucinations in youth are often transient. Nevertheless, while present, they can cause severe suffering and even be a symptom of psychopathology. Research following this thesis shows that almost one in ten people ever experience an auditory hallucination, with higher rates in children (12.7%) and adolescents (12.4%) than in adults (5.8%) and the elderly (4.5%). About a quarter (23.6%) of young ...

Misinterpretations are common in people who are diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Delusions normally mean when a person believes in an idea that is not realistic but stays adamant that that illusion is real. It is almost impossible to make the affected see the reality of the notion because it is already made up in their minds that, that idea is factual.. There are a number of aberrations Schizophrenia and these include Delusions of persecution: This is when the affected think that people are out to get them or have a personal vendetta against them.. Delusions of reference: A person who has Schizophrenia might think a person who is singing a song, acting in a movie, or is on a billboard chart is sending a message specifically to them. Delusions of grandeur: This when the diagnosed think they are somebody well-known and significant. Furthermore, they often think they have supernatural powers to do things that other people cant do.. ...

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after twelve minutes of chaos and violence, eighty people lay dead. Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things -- monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics makes its report, the mass delusions make more sense: it appears the bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive people into temporary insanity -- if not kill them outright. But that doesnt explain who would unleash such horror -- or why. Eves husband, Roarke, ...
Background: Substantial epidemiological research has shown that psychotic experiences are more common in densely populated areas. Many patients with persecutory delusions find it difficult to enter busy social urban settings. The stress and anxiety caused by being outside lead many patients to remain in-doors. We therefore developed a brief CBT intervention, based upon a formulation of the way urban environments cause stress and anxiety, to help patients with paranoid thoughts to feel less distressed when outside in busy streets. Aims: The aim was to pilot the new intervention for feasibility and acceptability and gather preliminary outcome data. Method: Fifteen patients with persecutory delusions in the context of a schizophrenia diagnosis took part. All patients first went outside to test their reactions, received the intervention, and then went outside again. Results: The intervention was considered useful by the patients. There was evidence that going outside after the intervention led to ...
The feeling of being part of everything else in the universe is known as unity or cosmic consciousness. It is common on a drug high and very appealing to those who have rejected a personal Creator. In contrast to the delusion of a mystical union with an impersonal universe, Gods love is experienced by Christians in a personal relationship with Him.. Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, commander of Apollo 14, had the mystical experience of cosmic consciousness on his return trip from the moon. So profoundly was he affected that he abandoned the outer space program to explore inner space.

After Richard Dawkins The God Delusion comes the reply. Wham bam! Rupert Sheldrake takes on the truth-finding religion of science in general and ten dogmas of the 21st-century worldview in particular. These include arguments that consciousness is a by-product of the biochemistry of the brain; that evolution is purposeless; that God is only an idea. Each is dealt with swiftly and efficiently in its own chapter, at the conclusion of which are some sceptical questions that challenge the reader to think again, and a clear summary of the main arguments.. Sheldrake recalls, disapprovingly, the philosopher of science George Sarton saying: Truth can be determined only by the judgment of experts ... The people have nothing to say but accept the decisions handed out to them. Verily, says Sheldrake, here is an attitude worthy of the Roman Catholic Church at its most zealous. And he hints that religion lies behind many philosophical certainties, starting with Descartes splitting asunder mind and ...

The grandiosity of the ego is its alternative to the grandeur of God. - A Course In Miracles. I have been sitting in reflection over something I read in A Course In Miracles. The course talks about the difference between grandeur and grandiosity. My reflections made me think about the term Delusions of Grandeur; the phrase that clinicians use to describe someone who has grandiose thoughts about themselves.. The course explains this perfectly: the ego has condemned each of us to a false reality of separation. Therefore, any realization of grandeur conflicts with the egos verdict. The egos defense to any realization of grandeur is to initiate grandiosity as a cover-up. I experienced this in the early days of my journey when any moment of clarity would be followed by the belief that I was special.. I have always believed that mental illness is really spiritual warfare. But it…. ...

A significant number of patients visit dental clinics because of unusual oral sensations for which no physical cause can be found. Such patients are recognized as having oral somatic delusion (OSD). OSD may be either primary (monosymptomatic) or secondary to another disease, such as depression or cerebral infarction. Although the presenting complaints of patients with primary and secondary OSD are nearly indistinguishable, symptoms in patients with secondary OSD seem to be resistant to treatment compared with those in patients with primary OSD. Moreover, right dominant cerebral blood flow (CBF) has been reported in patients with primary OSD, but the difference in CBF between patients with primary and secondary OSD remains unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the differences in clinical characteristics and CBF distribution between patients with monosymptomatic OSD (non-depression group) and OSD in conjunction with remitted depression (depression group). Participants were 27 patients of a
