- CONCLUSIONS: This study reports on the largest cohort of YOD to date, with diagnostic breakdown similar to previous retrospective file reviews. The neuropsychiatry service is funded to follow-up its patients, thus allowing re-assessment and continuity of care. While there are limitations in this study such as the lack of neuropathological […]
- CONCLUSION: We found that younger age at onset, having a dementia which was not the most commonly occurring AD or bvFTD, and increasing number of services were significant predictors of diagnostic delay. A novel result was that a specialist YOD service may decrease diagnostic delay, highlighting the importance of such […]
- The epilepsies are commonly accompanied by widespread abnormalities in cerebral white matter. ENIGMA-Epilepsy is a large quantitative brain imaging consortium, aggregating data to investigate patterns of neuroimaging abnormalities in common epilepsy syndromes, including temporal lobe epilepsy, extratemporal epilepsy, and genetic generalized epilepsy. Our goal was to rank the most robust […]
- Visiting and observing: reflections on clinical observer visits to Neuropsychiatry, Royal Melbourne HospitalCONCLUSIONS: For clinical psychiatrists working in smaller population centres, clinical observer visits with peers may be a useful method to develop, improve and calibrate knowledge and skills. Such potential benefits may be even more marked for specialised fields of psychiatry, such as neuropsychiatry.
- Psychosis of epilepsy (POE) can be a devastating condition, and its neurobiological basis remains unclear. In a previous study, we identified reduced posterior hippocampal volumes in patients with POE. The hippocampus can be further subdivided into anatomically and functionally distinct subfields that, along with the hippocampal fissure, have been shown […]
