Nervenarzt. 2018 Aug 24;: Authors: Stengler K, Frank M, Riedel-Heller SG, Becker T, Steinhart I, Gerlinger G, Hauth I, Deister A Abstract For most people living with mental illnesses, participating in society is of existential importance; however, psychosocial care often fails to recognize its significance and therefore rarely includes the patient's interaction with society in the course of treatment. The reasons for this are...

[Neuronal plasticity and neuromodulation in pediatric neurology].
CONCLUSION: Neuronal plasticity appears to be an important pathophysiological factor in neuronal developmental disorders and can be investigated using TMS. New and innovative techniques may offer novel approaches for individualized TMS applications, particularly in children with neuropediatric conditions.

[Where can psychiatry go from here?]
Abstract The paper addresses possible perspectives for the future of psychiatry in Europe over the next 30 years. Initially, an historical overview over the history of psychiatry since the Enlightenment suggests that significant changes did not primarily originate in psychiatry itself but were rather the result of the given societal contexts. The paper then describes five different potential scenarios for psychiatric care in 30 years time. Following that, the current situation of psychiatrists and possible signs of a crisis are outlined, and specific aspects that characterize the job of psychiatrist...

Abstract Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one and its intensity usually lessens over time. Approximately 10% of bereaved persons, however, experience persistent symptoms resulting in the development of a prolonged grief disorder (PGD). A PGD shows a distinct symptom cluster and is considered for inclusion as a diagnosis in the upcoming revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11). It is distinct from other mental disorders but symptoms overlap, especially with major depression and posttraumatic stress disor...

Abstract The differential diagnosis of atypical dementia remains difficult. The use of positron emission tomography (PET) still represents the gold standard for imaging diagnostics. According to the current evidence, however, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is almost equal to fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET, but only when using new big data and machine learning methods. In cases of atypical dementia, especially in younger patients and for follow-up, MRI is preferable to computed tomography (CT). In the clinical routine, promising MRI procedures are e. g. the automated volumetry of anatomical 3D images, as well as ...

CONCLUSION: Against the background of a rapidly increasing use of checkpoint inhibitors, this article provides an overview of currently available reports on the clinical courses of neurological side effects. Controlled studies on the treatment of neurological side effects are lacking.

Typical symptom constellations must therefore be rapidly recognized and an immunosuppressive treatment must be initiated. PMID: 30073487 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Der Nervenarzt)

Although in some patients the specific gene defect remains to be detected, the increasing identification of causative genes in recent years has already provided unique insights into the functionality of structural proteins at the neuromuscular junction. Neonatal and early childhood onset is observed in most CMS subtypes; however, late onset in adolescence or adulthood also occurs and ...

Abstract There are no rational reasons why electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) should not be subject to the same criteria in its clinical application as any other treatment in medicine. Associations referring to historical events and their presentation in the media do not provide convincing arguments against the clinical use of ECT. In order to offer ECT to patients, scientifically solid evidence with respect to its clinical results must be available. As this scientific evidence is clearly given, ECT must be offered to the patients. A well-informed, reflected medicine must not withhold an effective treatment like ECT ...

It is based on a naturopathic and anthropological belief in association with the hinduistic religion.

Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common chronic autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) largely affecting young adults. The diagnosis of MS is based on two pillars: 1) detection of the spatial and temporal dissemination of focal neurological deficits and 2) exclusion of important differential diagnoses. The current revision of the diagnostic criteria (McDonald 2017) also follows these principles, takes new data on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into account and reintroduces the role of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diagnostics for relapsing-remitting forms.
