Is related to damage to the floor and walls of the third ventricle and those parts of the brain. There is disorientation for place and time. Could be regarded as delusional retrospective falsification. A false description of an event. Some amnestic pts.

Could be influenced by the examiner. Leonhard suggests that these. Some pts.

The sense of recognition is never absolute. The subject has the experience that he has seen or experienced the current situation before. Syndrome of Fregoli: Negative misidentification: Could result from an excessive concretization of memory images.

Asthenic affects: Mood state: Classification of emotional disorders: Abnormal emotional predisposition: Hyperthymic personality: Dysthymic personality: The hyperthymic, dysthymic, cyclothymic and irritable temperaments, which are often found in pts. Other predispositions to emotional disorders are probably partly, if not wholly, determined by childhood experiences. In children and adolescents there is normally a lack of constancy in emotional feeling and instinctual life, which is associated with a lack of persistence, a tendency to egotism, cruelty, outbursts of emotion and overvalued thinking.

The borderline between reactive depression and Verstimmung is not well marked. Fears restricted to a specific object. Often anger and resentment are ill-controlled. Agoraphobia is not a true phobia. Morbid depression often the expression of an abnormal personality.

Reactive depression: Loss of weight.

May be a trait of personality the explosive personality and it occurs in morbid states. May occur in any organic state. Anxiety or fear seen in schizophrenia is difficult to be regarded as morbid.

Organic neurasthenia: Euphoria classically occurs in disseminated sclerosis. Lesions of the hypothalamus may produce clinical pictures resembling mania with flight of ideas.

Another aspect of loss of boundary with the environment is seen when the pt. If a pt. When the underlying physical illness is severe.


Other hallucinations of touch. Disordered thinking as it is in dreams. Clinical features: Visual hallucinations — usually of small animals. Auditory hallucinations — commonly elementary.

There is some lowering of the level of consciousness which is the subjective experience of a rise in the threshold for all incoming stimuli. There may also be some restriction of consciousness so that the mind is dominated by few ideas. There is some lowering of the level of consciousness. After some weeks there is a remarkable partial recovery and the pt.


Arteriosclerotic disease. Abnormal Subjective experiences of motor behaviour alienation of motor acts: Classification of motor disorders: Disorders of adaptive movements: In schizophrenia. In agitated or anxious depression. In depression the main fold in upper lid is angulated upwards and backwards at the junction of the inner third with the middle third of the fold Veraguth. The flat. Disorders of goal-directed movements: In ecstasy or exaltation. Neurological disorders. Motility psychosis: Reactive movements are lost in the inhibited phase.

The agitated depressive is easily distracted so that he may have difficulty in initiating a voluntary movement and be unable to carry through a complicated pattern of voluntary movements. Disorders of reactive movements: Marked anxiety: Reactive movements are usually affected by obstruction.

More severe obstruction: Experienced subjectively as a feeling that all actions have become much more difficult to initiate and carry out. Occurs in catatonia. Obstruction Sperrung. More severe degrees: Mild obstruction: Gives rise to an irregular hindrance to psychic or motor activity.

Mildest degrees: Occurs in depressive illness. May affect habitual or reactive movements. The muscle tension may be normal. This is known as displacement activity. These actions have obviously been goaldirected at some time. Spontaneous movements: Is basically neurological.

Static tremor: Occurs in the hands. Spasmodic torticollis: A spasm of the neck muscles. These could be regarded as displacement activities. Usually reminiscent of expressive movements or defensive reflexes. Is sometimes familial. Also occurs in Parkinsonism. Patients are usually able to carry out voluntary movements accurately.

Tends to worsen as the pt. Sudden involuntary twitchings of small groups of muscles. Organic tremors are made worse by emotional disturbances.

Psychogenically determined motor habits? Brought to light by emotional tension in a pt. Choreic and athetotic movements can occur in catatonia. Verbal stereotypies are found in expressive aphasias. The movements are slow. Repetitive non-goal directed actions carried out in a uniform way.

There is usually widespread hypotonia. Abrupt jerky movements which resemble fragments of expressive or reactive movements. They may be produced spontaneously or be set off by a question. May be a simple movement or a stereotyped or recurrent utterance. Bostroem defined grotesque distorted movements and postures in which no aim or goal can be seen.

Brings about strange postures of the body. Verbal stereotypies are words or phrases which are repeated. Snorting and sniffing are often also present.

The arms and face are affected and respiration is often affected. A syndrome characterized by automatic obedience. Disorders of perception and difficulties in understanding speech in schizophrenia may account for echopraxia in that illness.

Patients imitate simple actions which they see. Echopraxia usually happens when the pt. Some authors use as synonym for automatic obedience. Echo reactions occur in: Echologia Kleist: Organic echolalia results from a lesion of the left temporal lobe and the adjacent regions of the parietal lobe. Is more obvious when the speech is affected. Is a senseless repetition of a goal-directed action which has already served its purpose. Some non-psychotics. Perseveration is more likely to occur if the problem the pt.

In the early stages the pt. Both types occur in coarse brain disease. Specifically, we evaluated whether the 6-month-old infants of schizotypic mothers display smaller differences and larger suppression ratios in the P50 component when explored using the paired-tone paradigm.

A 6-month-old infant population was chosen for the present research due to the developmental trajectories observed in the existing sensory gating literature. We know from the literature that sensory gating can be observed from as young as 2 Hutchison et al. Thirty-five infants with a mean age of 5. The final sample included 14 participants who identified as being an infant of a schizotypic mother iSZT and the remaining 21 participants were infants of control mothers iCON.

For one EEG experiment with infants, this is a typical sample size for similar studies e. See Fig. All electrophysiological signals were recorded using Electrical Geodesics Inc. Open image in new window Fig. For the elimination of electrical artefacts caused by eye and body movements, EEG data was rejected offline by the visual editing of trial by trial data. Infants experienced a range of 57— paired-stimuli repetitions: equating to a minimum of 11—28 good trials per participant, dependent on the length of sleep period, and contributed an average of Following averaging, data were re-referenced to the average reference, by averaging all included channels together, and high-pass filtered at 0.

All infant ERPs computed a mean amplitude and maximum amplitude measure. All analyses were conducted blind to the participant group status. The central region of interest was chosen to expand the existing literature, which focuses primarily on CZ; thus, selecting a group of central electrodes allows us to explore whether sensory gating is observed in the central region in general, rather than just at CZ For example, Park et al.

In , Kleist described that some patients used words idiosyncratically to cover a greater range of meaning than they mentally encompass. He called these stock words or phrases. This psychopathological disorder reflected a poverty of words and syntax and also an active tendency for words to intrude into thoughts, and therefore speech. According to this author, in schizophrenic patients, the constellation of associations between words is also disordered and they often presented apparently irrelevant associations, even though they seem appropriate subjectively to the patient himself Bleuler 14 studied this subject in much more detail than any author before.

In his opinion, there would be an inability to associate ideas due to the absence of a central deterministic idea. Thoughts arise linked to each other by means of idiosyncratic causal connections, leading to a production of distorted concepts characterized by condensation, displacement, and symbolism.

This way patients present thoughts that are disconnected from reality autistic He described a number of changes in thought that could be regarded as FTD: derailment, fusion, suspension and drivelling According to Schneider, the three components of normal thinking constancy, organization, and continuity are disturbed in schizophrenic thinking.

Derailment entgleisen consists in the breakdown in association so that the main thought flows into another subsidiary unrelated thought e.

In fusion verschmelzung there is some preservation of the normal chain of associations, with juxtaposition of heterogeneous and incomprehensible contents. In other words, several ideas A, B, C are interconnected. Suspension consists in the sudden interruption of a certain thought e. In drivelling there is a miscellany of fragments of heterogeneous thoughts, with loss of associations and loss of sense 3.

This can occur when there is a high degree of derailment and fusion, with or without maintenance of the syntactic structure Goldstein 18 described a special form of concrete thinking that was present in patients with schizophrenia. This concrete thinking or abstraction deficit refers to the inability to make the distinction between the symbolic and the concrete, and also to the incapacity to treat internal and external stimuli conceptually and to delimit them in relation to the surrounding environment.

The patient is not able to deal with his experiences conceptually, does not perceive the objects as belonging to a class or category and is incapable of understanding abstraction Norman Cameron 20 emphasized the lack of connections between successive thoughts that could be present in psychiatric patients. He termed this phenomenon as asyndesis. Cameron also includes the following as FTD: over-inclusiveness when the patient cannot maintain the boundaries of a concept including in it attributes from other concepts, e.

Schneider's fusion concept and thought fragmentation bearing many resemblances to C.

Schneider's derailment concept Shneider and alogy thought without logic It included the FTD, which he described and organized according to several classical authors. Fish also subdivided them into negative or positive: while in the negative FTD the patient loses his capacity to think even though he doesn't produce abnormal concepts , in the positive FTD the patient produces false concepts resulting from the fusion of several disconnected elements.

After Fish' death, the text was revised and updated by Max Hamilton in and Other authors have developed concepts that are very close to the original meaning of FTD. Among them, Arieti points out, in , that while the process of human brain evolution has shown continual rise from the concrete to the abstract, in schizophrenia concrete forms of thought re-emerge.

Therefore, not only schizophrenic patients, but also little children tend to show a paleological logic that is progressively replaced by the Aristotelian logic of adults, using second-order cognitive processes compared to those used by normal subjects. In an example cited by Arieti, a schizophrenic patient says she is the Madonna. The paleological reasoning behind this statement can be interpreted thusly.Small animals are most often hallucinated in delirium.

However, it is now accepted that this symptom may also present itself in other situations such as organic cerebral disorders e.

Crow 34 defended the idea that FTD could be derived from an absence of hemispheric asymmetry in language areas. This I quality has been called Personalization by Jaspers. Ming Wang. Delirium Severe depression with delusions of guilt Patients with delusions of self-reference.
