AFFECTIVE DISORDERS From of psychosis characterized by the charge in mood &behavior.CNS SITES LINKED WITH MOOD & BEHAVIORS.LIMBIC SYSTEM.Hypothalamus.Ant. Thalamic nuclei. Rich inSingular gyros. Monoamines.HippocampusAmygdale & septum.2. MAMILLARY BODY.For nix.AFFECTIVE DISORDERS INCLUDE;MANIA: • Opposite of depression, exceberance & enthusiasm. • Rapid flow of though • Talkativeness. • Ed self confidence. • Hyperactivity & improved judgment. b) Depression: Manifested by:-*Vague somatic symptoms (Aches & pains)* General feelings of misery, Apathy, hopelessness & despaired.* Intense feelings of sadness.* Inability to experience please urine usual activities.Psycho mooted showing, retardation. • Feeling of guilt & inadequacy. • Disturbance of body system of sleeps hunger & appetite. & Indecisiveness. • Inductiveness. • Anxiety & agitation. • Loss of libido & sexual drive.
INCIDENCE. • Most common psychiatric disorders. • Hereditary link. • 5-6 of population at a given moment. • 10% may suffers during thert lifetime. TYPES OF DEPRESSION: a) Uni- Polar. • Do not swing in to bout of mania • Hereditary link. • Specific genes have been identified. I RECTIVE DEPRESION (SECOBDARY OR NEUROTIC). • Most common type. • 60% of all depression. • Exaggerated & distorted response to depressing circumstance. Common precipitations. Factors R. • Adveese life events loss, grief etc. • Physical illness self or relatives. • Drughs (Anti- HTN, alcohol, hormones) • Others psychiatric disorders. • Women are affected more than men. • Incidence es with age.ii. ENDOGENOUS (Major,)Melancholic depression.25% of all & 1-2 of populationResult of genetically determined biochemical disorders.Inability to cope with ordinary strees.Usually start in early adulthood but may affect any age gp.Affect both sexes equallyPrecipitated by ordinary life eventsUsually associated with bipolar.PATHOPHYSIOLOGY.Monoaminbe (biogentic amine recory):
Ist proposed by schild kraut in 1965 functional deficit of NA &/or 5ht atcertain sites of brain.Drughs:- Potentate activity of NA. DA/or 5.HT directly or indirectly. a) Points in favor. Deughs TCA & MAO inhibitors armine transmission. Rescipine cause depression.. b) Poinks Against. • Amphetamine & cocaine amine tramnsmission but have no antidepressant effect. • Anti depressant eff is late & does not correspond to transmission. • Some anti depressants have no action on amine transmission. • Several studies show biochemical changes in depression which are similar to mamia. Latest View Mania Fxnal Excess ERIC HASELINS. Have you ever experience any of the sympatoms every or nearly every day in 2 weeks period. • Difficulity in cons. • Loss of interest in activities you normally enjoys. • Changes in apetite and wt. • Insomnia or oversleeping. • Feeling of sadness. • Physical showing. • Agitation or Anxiety. • Presistent thoughts of death or suicide.
