Dr. Stuart Isaacson discusses his presentation at the American Academy of Neurology 2016 meeting in Vancouver.
In this video we discuss the symptoms of schizophrenia and the dopamine hypothesis of its pathogenesis. We also discuss the mechanism by which the antipsychotic drugs produce remission from the psychotic symptoms.
Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

This alternative therapy employs vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create optimum nutritional content for the body, as well as the right environment and equilibrium. Like most alternative medicine techniques, orthomolecular medicine targets a wide range of conditions. [depression, bipolar, adhd, schizophrenia, add, addiction, alcoholism, drug addiction...] Orthomolecular medicine was developed by Linus Pauling, Ph.D., winner of two Nobel prizes, in 1968. It is designed to enable individuals to reach the apex of health and the peak of their performance by utilizing only naturally occurring substances (e.g. vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, co-enzymes). The proper balance of these substances in the body is the key to reaching physical, mental, and emotional health and stability. Orthomolecular medicine can be used therapeutically to treat diseases such as cancer and AIDS, or preventatively to impede the progress of degenerative disease and aging. When all is said and done, however, the main objective of orthomolecular medicine is to help the patient reach an optimal level of health; his or her self-esteem will probably improve in the process. Although orthomolecular medicine did not fully develop into a therapy until the late 1960's when Pauling coined the term "orthomolecular," the premise behind this practice originated in the 1920's, when vitamins and minerals were first used to treat illnesses unrelated to nutrient deficiency. It was discovered that vitamin A could prevent childhood deaths from infectious illness, and that heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) could be stopped by dosages of magnesium. Hard scientific evidence supporting nutritional therapy did not emerge, however, until the 1950's, when Abram Hoffer, M.D., and Humphrey Osmond, M.D., began treating schizophrenics with high doses of vitamin B3 (niacin). As a consequence of their studies, it was revealed that niacin, in combination with other medical treatments, could double the number of recoveries in a one-year period. Eventually, it was determined that malnutrition and consumption of refined, empty-calorie foods such as white bread and pastries and overconsumption of sugar could yield disease and psychiatric disorders. It became apparent that a person's diet was an overwhelmingly integral part of his or her health and well-being. Further studies showed that decreased intake of dietary fiber, bran, minerals, and complex carbohydrates was prevalent in patients with certain forms of mental illness, accompanied by a loss of vitamins and an increase in dietary fat. Biochemical individual is a main principle of orthomolecular medicine. This principle was elucidated by Roger J. Williams, Ph.D. This principle is quite simple: every living organism is unique! Furthermore, each individual requires different relative amounts of nutrients for his or her satisfaction and optimal level of health. The government sets a minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA) which is supposed to be adequate for all individuals. However, many may need to exceed the RDA as well as the recommended 2,000 calorie diet in order to prevent severe deficiency disease. Thus, RDA values are not perfect guidelines for everyone. Several studies have proven the existence of biochemical individuality. For example, studies of guinea pigs showed a twentyfold variation in their requirement for vitamin C. A study conducted with human subjects revealed that children have varying needs for vitamin B6.
Angry or aggressive patients pose a safety threat, and their outbursts can be disruptive, challenging and impede care. There are four objectives when trying to interact and care for an angry or aggressive patient. This video helps health care workers understand anger, help patients control and manage it, and interact effectively to provide empathetic, compassionate, patient centered care.
The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence at UC Davis May 1, 2017 Symposium, "Serving Early Psychosis Populations: Evidence-Based Practices and Systems" Research Keynote: Before, During and After: Successes and Challenges in the Delivery of Early Psychosis Treatment: The NY Experience Presented by: Lisa Dixon, M.D., M.P.H., professor of Psychiatry at the Columbia University Medical Center and the director of the Division of Behavioral Health Services and Policy Research within the Department of Psychiatry. She also directs the Center for Practice Innovations at the New York State Psychiatric Institute Learning Objectives: Before -To understand the role of duration of untreated psychosis in outcomes in schizophrenia -To identify bottlenecks in the pathway to care for individuals with early psychosis During -To understand the components and outcomes of coordinated specialty care -To identify important gaps in knowledge about treatment for early psychosis After -To understand what is known about follow-up studies of specialized early psychosis services. -To identify the challenges for providing optimal follow-up care.
Antipsychotics are a class of drugs used to control certain behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) including delusions, hallucinations, aggression, and agitation when there is potential for harm to the patient or others. This video provides an overview of how to use an evidence-based deprescribing algorithm to help you decide when and how to safely reduce or stop certain antipsychotics – especially if at risk numerous side effects, the most severe of which are increased overall risk of death and increased risk of cerebrovascular adverse events.
