[Pathophysiological features of mental disorders in old age]

MISKOLCZY Dezső

[We must admit that it is through histopathological research that we have arrived at the current classification of neurological diseases, or more precisely mental diseases, that occur in later life. The knowledge of the anatomical substratum has enabled us to distinguish arteriosclerotic dementia from dementias of old age. ]

[EEG in patients undergoing haemispherectomy]

JUHÁSZ Pál, OBÁL Ferenc

[We report on serial EEG studies of five patients, 3 of whom had infantile hemiplegia maintaining epilepsy and oligophrenia, and 2 of whom underwent haemispherectomy for diffuse malignant glioma. Atrophic cerebrum was characterized by a flat polyrhythmic dysrhythmic curve with no electromic response to sensory stimuli and no sleep stages. Preoperative electromagnetic seizure potentials of the "intact" side may not be a contraindication to surgery if the electromic epileptiform discharges of... tovább »

[In a chronic schizophrenic patient, a series of LSD experiments convinced us that LSD intoxication did not change the patient's underlying symptoms. The LSD psychosis, which could be induced in a healthy individual, combined with the patient's underlying symptoms. Within the merged picture, however, we also observed a modifying effect of LSD on the basic psychosis, which was manifested in changes in extensity and intensity without a qualitative difference. Increased LSD tolerance on successive... tovább »

DRIETOMSZKY Jenő

[We attempted to analyse the symptoms and behaviour of a schizophrenic patient in the light of normal psychological criteria and psychopathological research findings. In our patient, besides a relative retention of emotional functions, a very advanced formal disturbance of thinking was observed. We investigated his performance in a specific situation and assessed this performance in such a way that the retention of emotional functions allowed for a relatively good performance. Moreover, we... tovább »

[Vascular effects of sleep and nicotinic acid]

KASSAI György

[After reviewing the literature on the vascular response to nicotinic acid, the author thought it appropriate to examine the influence of a fundamental central function, sleep, on what was previously thought to be a purely peripheral response.]
