[Ability to drive with cerebrovascular diseases : Position paper of the German societies DGNB, DGN, DGNC, DGNR, DSG and GNP].
Abstract The regulations for ability to drive with cerebrovascular diseases in the German Driving License Regulations (Fahrerlaubnisverordnung, FeV) and German Guidelines for the Evaluation of Driving Ability of the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) are not up to date with the current medical knowledge and are not consistent with comparable regulations regarding cardiovascular diseases. This is particularly true for the assessment of future risks for a sudden loss of control during driving. The present position paper of six medical and neuropsychological societies in Germany presents the current conditions...

There are numerous imaging studies showing differences in the volume of gray and white brain matter and function between patients suffering from depression and healthy controls. Neuroimaging studies show that pharmacotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy are accompanied by an increase of hippocampal gray matter volume while as a result of psychotherapy activity changes in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) have repeatedly been reported.

Projects for preschool age children mostly worked with the parents and referred to elements of parental training. For schoolchildren there were various preventive projects that especially worked with increasing the self-esteem and the development of coping strategies. Projects for adolescents worked with psychoeducation and increasing social connectedness. Across all age groups there was no compre...

[Mental diseases and genetic disposition: ethical aspects].
Abstract The handling of predictive genetic tests especially in the field of mental diseases requires a sensitive approach. In particular internet-based direct-to-consumer offers cannot provide an appropriate interpretation of the onset probabilistic data. Instead, a doctor-patient relationship should cater for clarity through hermeneutic and non-technicistic assistance with respect to the necessity of a test as well as with a view to the interpretation of the test results.

Abstract After an impressively successful application as a research instrument, whole-exome sequencing (WES) now enters the clinical practice due to its high diagnostic, time, and economic efficiency. WES is the diagnostic method of choice for symptoms that may be due to many different monogenic causes. Neurological indications include movement disorders, especially in cases of early symptom onset, familial clustering and complex manifestation. Starting from a blood sample, enrichment and sequencing of the exome enable the examination of all coding DNA regions for point mutations and small insertions/deletion...

SC Abstract Early life maltreatment can have severe and long-lasting consequences for the directly affected individual as well as for the next generation. Data from our research including mother-child dyads from Heidelberg and Berlin show that early life maltreatment is associated with behavioral and neural changes including personality traits and attachment style of the affected mothers that negatively affect their relationship with their child. The children of these mothers affected by early life maltreatment have an elevated risk to be maltreated and to develop mental disorders. They also show a heightene...

Abstract In the history of psychiatry a variety of "blood detoxification" procedures have repeatedly been used to treat schizophrenic disorders under the assumption of autointoxication. In the 1970s this led to the use of dialysis. In addition to the historical classification of this therapeutic approach, particularly the protagonists active in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as well as the dimension of research and science policy are highlighted. Despite the relatively low success rate of the treatment overall, the question of which patients actually had a positive response to the treatme...

CONCLUSION: Analysis of the dataset provided confirmation of the results in the literature that lesions within the Guillain-Mollaret triangle more often lead to HOD. Patients with corresponding symptoms should be closely observed over time with respect to the occurrence of corresponding clinical and imaging leading symptoms. Even though the named clinical symptoms are characteristic for HOD, in many cases the diagnosis is hampered and delayed by imprecise examination and misinterpretation of the symptoms. A logopedic examination using FEES in this collective often provided indicative information. Currently, no reliable dat...
