["Heavy mental" psychopathology in classical music].

Zoltán Janka

Psychiatr Hung 2021 ;36(3):303-335

Szegedi Tudomanyegyetem, Szent-Gyorgyi Albert Orvostudomanyi Kar, Pszichiatriai Klinika, Szeged, Hungary, E-mail:

Depending on affinity, attitude, preference, understanding, and mental state, music can influence emotions, mood, motivation, psychomotor, cognitive, and spiritual functions in the receptive person. It is presumed that a given music may reflect the actual psychic condition of the composer and, if applicable, the nature of the chosen topic to be characterized. However, extreme situations may emerge from these components i. Read More

Post-traumatic Confusional State: A Case Definition and Diagnostic Criteria.

Arch Phys Med Rehabil 2020 11 29;101(11):2041-2050. Epub 2020 Jul 29.

Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In response to the need to better define the natural history of emerging consciousness after traumatic brain injury and to better describe the characteristics of the condition commonly labeled posttraumatic amnesia, a case definition and diagnostic criteria for the posttraumatic confusional state (PTCS) were developed. This project was completed by the Confusion Workgroup of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Special Interest group. The case definition was informed by an exhaustive literature review and expert opinion of workgroup members from multiple disciplines. Read More

Dementia-related adverse events in PARADIGM-HF and other trials in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.

Eur J Heart Fail 2017 01 20;19(1):129-137. Epub 2016 Nov 20.

BHF Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK.

Aims: Inhibition of neprilysin, an enzyme degrading natriuretic and other vasoactive peptides, is beneficial in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), as shown in PARADIGM-HF which compared the angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) sacubitril/valsartan with enalapril. As neprilysin is also one of many enzymes clearing amyloid-β peptides from the brain, there is a theoretical concern about the long-term effects of sacubitril/valsartan on cognition. Therefore, we have examined dementia-related adverse effects (AEs) in PARADIGM-HF and placed these findings in the context of other recently conducted HFrEF trials. Read More

Organic delirious states and other psychiatric disorders: lessons for the hepatologists.

Metab Brain Dis 2013 Jun 6;28(2):235-8. Epub 2012 Nov 6.

Centre for Psychiatric Research, Aarhus University Hospital Risskov, Risskov 8240, Denmark.

Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is characterized by a wide variety of neuropsychiatric symptoms, and from a psychiatric perspective its nosological status calls for clarification. According to the ICD-10 classification, it can be classified as delirium due to overt HE's core symptom of clouding of consciousness in increasing degrees. Minimal/covert HE with impairment of neurocognitive function is more difficult to classify and could correspond to Mild Cognitive Impairment or mild degrees of dementia. Read More

Cognitive disconnective syndrome by single strategic strokes in vascular dementia.

J Neurol Sci 2012 Nov 28;322(1-2):176-83. Epub 2012 Aug 28.

Centro para Doença de Alzheimer, Instituto de Psiquiatria, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (CDA/IPUB/UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro RJ, Brazil.

Strategic regions correspond to associative, limbic and paralimbic structures and related circuits, that underpin cognitive/behavioral functions. Strokes in these eloquent sites produce pictures of vascular dementia with syndromic features due to specific site lesion and/or interruption of their interconnections. This study aims at analysing subcortical strategic strokes that express similar cognitive/behavioral elements, by sharing common pathways. Read More

School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

Background: In an effort to group mental disorders on the basis of aetiology, five clusters have been proposed. In this paper, we consider the validity of the first cluster, neurocognitive disorders, within this proposal. These disorders are categorized as 'Dementia, Delirium, and Amnestic and Other Cognitive Disorders' in DSM-IV and 'Organic, including Symptomatic Mental Disorders' in ICD-10. Read More

Behavioural disturbances following Japanese B encephalitis.

Eur Psychiatry 2003 Oct;18(6):269-73

Etablissement Public de Santé CHARCOT, 30 rue Marc-Laurent, 78370 Plaisir cedex, France.

Clinically, Japanese B encephalitis (JBE) is often overlooked as its occurrence in Western countries is rare. However, its neurological, cognitive and psychiatric sequelae constitute a major public health problem in the Far East where JBE is endemic. European and American subjects may however experience the JBE when returning from a Far East journey. Read More

Forgetting rates in neuropsychiatric disorders.

J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Dec;65(6):890-8

Division of Psychiatry and Psychology, United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas's Hospital, St Thomas's Campus, London, UK.

Objective: Previous studies have attributed accelerated forgetting rates on recognition memory tasks to temporal lobe pathology, but findings in some patient groups may have been attributable to metabolic disruption. Findings in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia are conflicting. The purpose of the present study was to compare forgetting rates in patients with confusional states (post-electroconvulsive therapy (post-ECT), delirium), with those obtained in schizophrenic patients (with putative temporal lobe pathology), non-ECT depressed patients, and healthy controls.

Diagnosis and management of memory loss and cognitive disorders among elderly persons.

Psychiatr Serv 1995 Jan;46(1):29-35

Department of Psychiatry, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.

Memory loss and other cognitive dysfunctions, although common in elderly persons, are not universal features of old age. Instead they herald the presence of various neuropsychiatric diseases, which are first recognized as syndromes. The two most common neuropsychiatric syndromes, dementia and delirium, produce global changes in cognition and other capacities. Read More

DSM-III and the diagnosis of organic mental disorders.

J M Ellison

Ann Emerg Med 1984 Jul;13(7):521-8

Among the many emergency patients who complain of behavioral symptoms, a significant proportion suffer from a physical illness manifesting as an organic mental disorder. Dementia and delirium should be considered in the presence of an impairment of orientation, alertness, or cognition. Effort is required to remain aware of the organic differential diagnoses of hallucinatory, delusional, amnestic, and affective disorders or of personality changes not associated with overt changes of sensorium or cognitive abilities.

Awareness of the medical disorders that frequently present with neuropsychiatric signs and symptoms and careful attention to a basic medical evaluation in every "psychiatric" patient will obviate referral of such patients to mental health facilities where their medical problems are less likely to be property diagnosed and treated. These disorders can be organized according to the predominant area of psychopathology (delirium, dementia, organic amnestic, delusional, hallucinatory, affective, and personality syndromes).
