Neuroimaging of schizophrenia and other primary psychotic disorders : achievements and perspectives( )

10 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the state of the art in the use of neuroimaging technologies in the study of schizophrenia and other primary psychotic disorders. The contributions of neuroimaging in the characterization of these disorders are reviewed across diagnoses, by focusing on psychopathological domains and at-risk populations in order to understand the implications for treatment. The principal neuroimaging findings are described in detail, identifying those that are common to and specific for each disorder and highlighting important pitfalls. Attention is drawn to potential translational aspects of research in the field, with discussion of emerging innovative perspectives. Neuroimaging research has shown that abnormalities of brain structure and function associated with psychiatric disorders do not reflect the boundaries of current diagnostic categories. However, neuroimaging findings are being reconsidered in the light of recent research proposals aimed at re-conceptualizing classification systems in Psychiatry. Written by leading experts, this book will appeal to all with an interest in the field, including researchers, clinicians, and trainees

Standard electroencephalography in clinical psychiatry : a practical handbook by Nashaat N Boutros( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a concise overview of the possible clinical applications of standard EEG in clinical psychiatry. After a short history, the book describes the physiologic basis of the EEG signal, then reviews the principles of EEG in terms of technical backgrounds and requirements, EEG recording and signal analysis, with plentiful illustrations of the most frequent biological or technical artefacts. Normal EEG patterns and waveforms for easy reference are clearly presented, before the detailed description of abnormal patterns. With the basic information in hand, the reader progresses to an account of the role of EEG in the diagnostic work up in psychiatry, covering nonconvulsive status epilepticus, frontal lobe seizures and non-epileptic seizures. The clinical application of EEG in both childhood and adult disorders follows, including many case vignettes. The effects of psychotropic drugs on EEG are highlighted. The book closes with a discussion of currently available certification venues for Clinical Neurophysiology along with limitations of each venue. It calls for the development of training guidelines and certification processes specific to Psychiatric Electrophysiology. The material is clearly presented throughout, with plenty of figures, tables with summaries of relevant findings, flow diagrams for diagnostic work-up, boxes with learning points, and short lists of key references. We fully expect the book will become the standard teaching source for psychiatry residents and fellows, as well as a useful resource for practising psychiatrists and clinical psychologists. bPraise for the book:/b "This distinguished group of editors has put together chapters that represent an excellent practical handbook on electroencephalography in clinical psychiatry, now a very important topic. I highly recommend it not only to psychiatrists, but also to anyone interested in neuroscience." bJohn R. Hughes, /b DM (Oxon), MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology, University of Illinois Medical Center, at Chicago, Illinois, USA

Development, Promotion And Adoption Of A Person-Centred Research And Care (PCRC) Framework For Mental Health Finding Strength In Collaboration Between International Stakeholders by Silvana Galderisi( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: Research conduct and care practices centred on the person have received increased attention in recent years. There remains, however, a strong unmet need for a widely accepted person-centred-research-and-care (PCRC) framework, endorsed by all stakeholders, to allow for good communication, robust evidence generation and optimal outcomes. The successful development and delivery of high quality social healthcare services encompasses an evidence-based, person-centred approach, including shared-decision-making, evidence-informed personalised care planning and self-management support, taking into consideration information asymmetry and potential disparities. Objective: to broker initial dialogue with stakeholders about their preferences and needs, opportunities/synergies, and assessing willingness to actively support a collaborative participatory initiative for the development, promotion and adoption of such a framework. Methods: A series of national/international policymakers, regulators, academics, healthcare professionals and patient representatives were asked to provide feedback on collaboration plans to strengthen PCRC and examine the key elements that ought to drive the generation, promotion and adoption of such a framework. Results: Current issues that still prevent successful PCRC practices were highlighted, i.e., poor training; limited knowledge/exchange between stakeholders; lack of readily accessible information and best practices, including tools to support local advocacy programmes and to guide evidence-informed policy, diversity and inclusion schemes; lack of tools to monitor and evaluate outcomes and impact of efforts related to PCRC practices; and lack of formal partnership between stakeholder groups in research and practice. Discussion: A PCRC framework and a collaborative and participatory model are required to promote and adopt evidence-informed policymaking and lead to more resilience on person, system and society levels
Negative Symptoms In Children And Adolescents At Clinical High Risk For Psychosis A Factorial Analysis Study by Silvana Galderisi( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: The past two decades have seen an exponential increase of the interest in the identification and treatment of individuals at Clinical High Risk (CHR) for psychosis. In CHR adults, many studies have reported a high prevalence of negative symptoms, such as social withdrawal and avolition. To our knowledge, no data are available in children and adolescents at CHR. Objectives: The aims of our study were to investigate the prevalence of negative symptoms in a group of CHR children and adolescents; to explore the factor structure of the same symptoms and their association with psychosocial functioning.Methods: 71 CHR, aged between 9-17 years, were included in the study. All participants were evaluated with the Structured Interview for Psychosis-Risk Syndromes (SIPS). Functioning was assessed using the Childhood Global Assessment Scale and Global Functioning: Social (GFS) and Role (GFR) scales.Results: All participants showed at least one negative symptom of moderate severity. The exploratory principal factor analysis on the 5 items of the negative scale of SIPS indicated a two-factor solution explaining 69.42% of the total variance. The two factors were labeled u201cExpressive Deficitu201d and u201cAnhedonia-Avolitionu201d. Only the u201cAnhedonia-Avolitionu201d factor was associated with lower scores on the GFR. Conclusion: In line with results in first episode and chronic subjects with schizophrenia, our results confirm the factor structure of negative symptoms and the unfavorable impact of Anhedonia u2013Avolition on functioning even in a sample of children and adolescents CHR, suggesting the importance of early treatment strategies for this negative symptom domain

Psychiatry In Transition Exemplar Case Studies From Italy And Bulgaria by Silvana Galderisi( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background and Aims:After suffering the long term consequences of institutionalized care of the asylum psychiatry and following the introduction of modern treatment and rehabilitation technologies in the second half of the XX century there were attempts for reforming psychiatric systems by introducing of new, complex and more humane forms of mental health care delivery.This report will explore the comparative experiences from periods of transition in two South European counties and will draw perspectives on the possible improvement of the psychiatric services.Methods:Methods of historical reconstruction and public health analysis were employed.Results:The reform of mental health care in Italy started with the Mental Health Care Act in 1978 and triggered a 25 years of period in transition from hospital based to community based mental health care. It has been subjected to controversial commentaries due to concerns about the overall social and public health impact. Attempts for reform in Bulgarian psychiatry started in 1996-2002 with political declarations for de-institutionalization. In result however it achieved a reduction of hospital beds without establishing any effective alternative model of community system. No separate Mental Health Care Act has been introduced on the legislative level. As a consequence psychiatry in Bulgaria has been heavily marginalized from the health and social care systems and lacks adequate human and funding resources.Conclusions:The described models of transition suffer from different shortcomings. New model for reform in psychiatric care is called for in countries from South European region

Avolition-Apathy and White Matter Connectivity in Schizophrenia: Reduced Fractional Anisotropy Between Amygdala and Insular Cortex( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The avolition/apathy domain of negative symptoms includes motivation- and pleasure-related impairments. In people with schizophrenia, structural and functional abnormalities were reported in key regions within the motivational reward system, including ventral-tegmental area (VTA), striatum (especially at the level of the nucleus accumbens, NAcc), orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), as well as amygdala (Amy) and insular cortex (IC). However, the association of the reported abnormalities with avoliton-apathy is still controversial. In the present study, we investigated white matter connectivity patterns within these regions, using a probabilistic analysis of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data, in male subjects with schizophrenia. Thirty-five male subjects with schizophrenia (SCZ) and 17 male healthy controls (HC) matched for age, underwent DTI. SCZ were evaluated using the Schedule for Deficit Syndrome (SDS), the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS), and the MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery (MCCB). Probabilistic tractography was applied to investigate pathways connecting the Amy and the NAcc with the OFC and IC. Reduced fractional anisotropy (FA) was observed in left Amy-ventral anterior IC connections, in SCZ compared with controls. This abnormality was negatively correlated with avolition/apathy but not with expressive deficit scores. SCZ showed also a reduced connectivity index between right NAcc and medial OFC, as compared with controls. Finally, the left NAcc-dorsal anterior IC connectivity index was negatively correlated with working memory scores. Our results indicate that only the avolition/apathy domain of negative symptoms is related to abnormal connectivity in the motivation-related circuits. The findings also demonstrate that distinct alterations underlie cognitive impairment and avolition/apathy
Impact of Reward and Loss Anticipation on Cognitive Control: An Event-Related Potential Study in Subjects With Schizophrenia and Healthy Controls( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Introduction. Deficits of cognitive functions and motivation are core aspects of schizophrenia. The interaction of these deficits might contribute to impair the ability to flexibly adjust behavior in accordance with one's intentions and goals. Many studies have focused on the anterior N2 as a correlate of cognitive control based on motivational value. Aims. Given the key role of motivation impairment in schizophrenia as a predictor of functional outcome, we aimed to study the impact of reward- and avoidance-based motivation on cognitive control using N2. Method. Event-related potentials were recorded during the execution of the "Monetary Incentive Delay (MID)" task in 34 patients with schizophrenia (SCZ) stabilized on second-generation antipsychotics and 22 healthy controls (HC). Cognitive domains were assessed using the MATRICS Consensus Cognitive Battery. Negative symptom domains (Avolition/apathy and Expressive deficit), as well as positive and disorganization dimensions were also assessed in SCZ. Results. We did not observe any group difference in N2 amplitude or latency. In HC, N2 amplitude was significantly larger for anticipation of large loss with regard to all reward conditions and for all incentive versus neutral conditions. In SCZ, N2 amplitude did not discriminate between large loss and reward or between incentive and neutral conditions. N2 amplitude was not correlated with psychopathological dimensions or MCCB-assessed cognitive deficits in SCZ. Conclusion. Our data in HC are in line with the hypothesis that N2 amplitude reflects the impact of motivational salience on cognitive control. Our results in SCZ indicate a deficit in the discrimination of motivational salience to the service of cognitive control, independently of psychopathology and other cognitive deficits
