Surely the NEJM could do a better review of delirium tremens
2.5 out of 5 stars Recognition and Management of Withdrawal Delirium (Delirium Tremens). Schuckit MA. N Engl J Med 2014 Nov 27;371:2109-2113. No abstract available This is an amazingly inept paper, even by the traditionally low standards of the New England Journal‘s  “Review Article” section. It was written by a psychiatrist who — on the basis of this piece — seems not to deal with severe alcohol withdrawal or delirium tremens at all.

Pro and Con: The British Psychological Society Report on Psychosis
The original etymologies and current usages of the words "psychosis" and "neurosis" are confusingly topsy-turvy. "Psychosis" literally means a disease of the soul or mind, but for more than 100 years this term has been used to describe only the severest forms of mental disorders, those that have at least partial causality in neurological (brain) malfunction. "Neurosis" literally means a disease of the nerves, but for more than 200 years this term has been used to describe a grab bag of mostly milder mental disorders more clearly related to psychology (the mind) or to social pressures than to any neurological disease.

Two Years to Nowhere
Two years after Newtown, mental health still matters, and most people still don't care. This weekend, on the second anniversary of the Newtown shootings, I took my daughter to see her first performance of The Nutcracker. Unsure of the exact venue, we parked on the street and followed the hordes of blond girls dressed just like my daughter in velvet dresses with satin sashes. I have wanted to reenact this holiday tradition from my childhood with my own now 9-year-old for many years. But this year was the first time we could actually go together. Two years ago, her brother was in an acute care psychiatric hospital, and I sh...

Neuronal circuits filter out distractions in brain
Scientists have hypothesized for decades about how the brain filters out distractions, but it has been challenging to find evidence to support the theories. Now, researchers have identified a neural circuit in the mouse brain that controls attention and sensory processing, providing insight into how the brain filters out distractions. The work has implications for devastating psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia that are characterized at least in part by significant attention deficits. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
