Angela Mathews, Dec 6, 2021
Depression (or major depressive disorder) is a medical condition that negatively affects your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It causes pervasive feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities, and other mental, emotional, and physical health problems, including: Changes in appetite Weight loss or weight gain Sleeping too much or too little Lack of energy or increased fatigue Slowed movements or speech Inability to sit still and pacing Feelings of worthlessness or guilt Trouble thinking, concentrating, or making a decision In the most severe cases, depression can trigger thoughts of death or suicide. The severity of symptoms varies from person to person. When those symptoms last more than two weeks and cause a change in your previous level of functioning, you may be suffering from more than just sadness. You may have clinical depression. Depression is not unique to certain demographics, but there are a variety of risk factors, ranging from personality to environmental influences. There’s also a strong correlation between depression and biochemistry. A malfunction in the way your brain communicates can cause depression.

A neurologist is a medical doctor that specializes in the study, diagnosis, treatment, and management of injuries, diseases, and disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord and is made up of two parts: the central and peripheral nervous system. Illnesses, disorders, and injuries that affect the nervous system often require a neurologist’s treatment. A neurologist’s training includes an undergraduate degree, four years of medical school, a one-year internship, and at least three years of specialized training. Because the nervous system is so complex, it is common for neurologists to pursue additional education in a subspecialty.
Quantifying the risk of pimavanserin in parkinsonian psychosis
Kevin Thomas, Dec 7, 2021
Introduction The burden of neurological disorders is disproportionately distributed in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), particularly Africa.¹ Unfortunately, African health systems struggle to reduce the unmet need because they have limited resources and competing priorities. For example, the specialist workforce density in most African countries is below recommended human resources for health targets. We are at the precipice of an emerging professional and public health care crisis within neurology. We are at a time when the number of Americans who self-identify as transgender is quickly increasing; as many as one in fifty members of Generation Z are transgender.
