Individualized Music Intervention as a Non-pharmacological Approach to Reduce Falls Risk, Agitation, and Psychotropic Drug Use in Persons with Severe Dementia
There is a major need for improved non-pharmacological interventions for behavioral and psychiatric symptoms of dementia (BPSD), which drastically impact caregiver burden and staff burnout. Medications commonly used to manage BPSD may have adverse effects, increasing fall risk and mortality. Individualized music therapy has been reported to improve agitation, mood, and meaningful engagement in persons with dementia. We assessed whether the integration of an individualized music intervention into routine care alleviates agitation, decreases fall risk, and reduces psychotropic drug use among dementia patients with severe beh...

Releasing Mechanism of Neurotrophic Factors via Polysialic Acid.
Abstract Neurotrophins are well-characterized neurologically active molecules in the central nervous system. The regulation of these signaling molecules, which are involved in cell growth, differentiation, and survival, is critical for normal brain function. Among the different types of neurotrophins, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is involved in various brain functions, including memory consolidation, synaptic plasticity, and adult neurogenesis, and is therefore a key molecule for understanding comprehensive brain function and neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diseases. The concentration of BDNF in bod...

Mental health, mental illness, and human rights in India and elsewhere: What are we aiming for?
Authors: Kelly BD Abstract The Mental Health Care Bill 2013 was introduced to the Rajya Sabha (India's upper house of parliament) in August 2013 and following 134 official amendments, passed in August 2016. Properly implemented, mental health legislation such as this plays a key role in protecting the rights of the mentally ill, ensuring access to care, and promoting social justice for the mentally ill, their families and carers. In this context, the 2006 United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) presents a real opportunity to improve the position of people with disabilities and t...

Forensic psychiatry in India: Past, present, and future.
Authors: Nambi S, Ilango S, Prabha L Abstract Forensic psychiatry is a subspecialty of psychiatry, in which scientific and clinical expertise is applied to legal issues in legal contexts embracing civil, criminal, correctional, or legislative matters. Forensic psychiatry is still in an infant stage in India and other developing countries. Law is the sanctioning discipline, and Psychiatry is the therapeutic discipline. Due to various reasons, Forensic Psychiatry is reared as Cinderella in our country; "which is much neglected, ignored, misinterpreted, and misunderstood. Legislation forms an integral component in the...

The insanity defense: Related issues.
Authors: Asokan TV Abstract For the past 150 years, there is no change in the understanding and knowledge other than autonomy and capacity to choose the right and wrong for criminal liability. The alternative concept that human behavior is the result of an interaction between biological and environmental factors other than free choice failed to impress the criminal justice system because of a direct threat to a society's deep seated need to blame someone than themselves for criminal harms that occur. The insanity defense has a long history, and is evolved after many tests that have been tried and tested. McNaughton...

Competence to stand trial: An overview.
Authors: Hoge SK Abstract The legal concept of competence to stand trial has ancient roots. The history of this legal construct in Anglo-Saxon law will be reviewed. A competent defendant is a requirement of the criminal justice system because it reflects interests related to the dignity of the process, the accuracy of adjudication, and respect for the autonomy of defendants. In the United States, legal decisions have established the contours of the requirements related to competent participation in adjudication. Forensic psychiatrists have operationalized the requirements for assessment purposes. Recent decisions i...

There is an urgent need in the standardized operating procedure in the use of coercive measure in Indian mental health setting.

Mental health and the law: An overview and need to develop and strengthen the discipline of forensic psychiatry in India.
Authors: Murthy P, Malathesh BC, Kumar CN, Math SB Abstract Human rights and mental health care of vulnerable population need supportive legislations and policies. Both "hard" and "soft" laws relevant to mental health care have been devised internationally and locally. Amendments in laws and the formulation of new laws are often required and have been seen to occur in the area of mental health care in India. So far, reform in mental health care has largely been reactive, but newer legislations and policies carry the hope of proactive reform. The lack of trained human resources is one of the biggest problems in effe...

(18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography Cortical Metabolic Activity Associated with Distinct Agitation Behaviors in Alzheimer Disease.
CONCLUSION: Symptoms encompassed within the Agitation factor have distinct neurobiologic underpinnings. The precipitants, course, and outcomes related to these symptoms may be unique from other neuropsychiatric symptoms characteristic of AD. Special attention to treatment of agitated behaviors involving anger, aggressiveness, hostility, and irritability/emotional lability is warranted, because they appear to reflect a clinically relevant symptom cluster with unique underlying neurobiologic correlates.

Childhood Abuse and the Two-Year Course of Late-Life Depression.
CONCLUSIONS: More depressive symptoms at baseline, lower age at depression onset, higher levels of neuroticism and loneliness, and more chronic diseases explain a poor course of depression in older adults who reported childhood abuse. When treating late-life depression it is important to detect childhood abuse and consider these mediating variables.

Physical Health, Medication, and Healthcare Utilization among 70-Year-Old People with Schizophrenia: A Nationwide Danish Register Study.
CONCLUSIONS: Because the literature suggests that excess mortality continues into old age, it is possible that medical diseases were under-registered and/or under-treated. Focus on adequate medical treatment, in particular for cardiovascular disease, is needed. Future integration of psychiatric and general medical healthcare, especially outpatient care, might further optimize health outcomes for older adults with schizophrenia.
