Emotional Lived in Patients Suffering From Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures : Study by Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

2016-11-30 15:45:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Currently, hypothetical models of understanding Psychogenic Non-epileptic Seizures (PNES) involve emotional dysregulation.

The hypothesis of a disorder of emotional experience is mainly based on behavioral data and disturbance of autonomic responses in response to images in emotional content (Mignot et al 2015, in submission; Bakvis et al 2013). Various imaging studies have identified brain structures belonging to the limbic system in particular that seem functionally impaired in this population. These functional connectivity abnormalities are correlated with dissociation scores in PNES patients (Van der Kruijs et al 2012 and 2014).

Investigators propose to specifically study the brain activity of PNES patients during tasks emotional content to identify the mechanisms involved in this emotional dysregulation. This work is essential to understanding the mechanisms and the development of new therapeutic strategies

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A clinical disorder characterized by excessive fluid intake (polydipsia); HYPONATREMIA; and POLYURIA in SCHIZOPHRENIA and other psychiatric disorders. Impaired water metabolism in psychogenic polydipsia can result in WATER INTOXICATION.

Recurrent conditions characterized by epileptic seizures which arise diffusely and simultaneously from both hemispheres of the brain. Classification is generally based upon motor manifestations of the seizure (e.g., convulsive, nonconvulsive, akinetic, atonic, etc.) or etiology (e.g., idiopathic, cryptogenic, and symptomatic). (From Mayo Clin Proc, 1996 Apr;71(4):405-14)

A directed conversation aimed at eliciting information for psychiatric diagnosis, evaluation, treatment planning, etc. The interview may be conducted by a social worker or psychologist.

Loss of the ability to recall information that had been previously encoded in memory prior to a specified or approximate point in time. This process may be organic or psychogenic in origin. Organic forms may be associated with CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENTS; SEIZURES; DEMENTIA; and a wide variety of other conditions that impair cerebral function. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp426-9)

An anticonvulsant used for several types of seizures, including myotonic or atonic seizures, photosensitive epilepsy, and absence seizures, although tolerance may develop. It is seldom effective in generalized tonic-clonic or partial seizures. The mechanism of action appears to involve the enhancement of GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptor responses.
