Parental Alienation

Cytokine inhibitors have not been shown to be effective antidepressants for patients with major depression. If future research supports the idea that the pathophysiologic process emanates from the periphery and spreads to the brain, blood tests might be able to identify specific individuals for treatment targeting and ultimately precision care.

Could a brain scan diagnose you as a psychopath?

Parental Alienation

Psychopathy is of course a very real disorder and a lot more complex than portrayed on film. For many years, the gold standard for diagnosing psychopathy has beenvarious formsofbehavioural assessment. But now, Californian neuroscientistJames Fallonclaims he can diagnose psychopathy from a brain scan. Last week theSmithsonian blogquoted him as saying:

“I was looking at many scans, scans of murderers mixed in with schizophrenics, depressives and other, normal brains. Out of serendipity, I was also doing a study on Alzheimer’s and as part of that, had brain scans from me and everyone in my family right on

Why psychopathic brains overvalue immediate rewards – Harvard Gazette

Parental Alienation

An associate professor of psychology at Harvard, Buckholtz is the senior author of a study that relies on brain scans of nearly 50 prison inmates to help explain why psychopathsmake poor decisionsthat often lead to violence or other anti-social behavior.

What they found, he said, is that psychopaths’ brains are wired in a way that leads them to overvalue immediate rewards and neglect the future consequences of potentially dangerous or immoral actions. Thestudyis described in a July 5 paper in Neuron.

Researcher able to show how psychopathic brains are wired differently

Parental Alienation

We mapped the connections between the ventral striatum and other regions known to be involved in decision-making, specifically regions of the prefrontal cortex known to regulate striatal response,” he said. “When we did that, we found that connections between the striatum and the ventral medial prefrontal cortex were much weaker in people with psychopathy.

What makes a person a psychopath?

Parental Alienation

If you are with somebody so selfish or self-centered who puts their needs above somebody else – well I guess you’re OK with that – but most people wouldn’t consider that a reasonable marriage to be in,” he stated.

People who know right from wrong feel pain from the families of their victims, but psychopaths don’t really care what they are doing. In fact, they don’t realize what they are doing could have lasting effects that would hurt other people because they are lacking certain aspects of humanity.

“If I found out that one of my friends was a psychopath, I wouldn’t want to be friends with them,” First said, “Not because of the

Parental Alienation

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) reads blood flows of each part of the brain. Therefore you can use certain tests to measure brain activity to check emotional, moral and empathetic responses.

There are certain brain areas that are widely known to be connected to certain reactions, such as frontal lobe, temporal lobe, amygdala, limbic system in general, that have some associations with psychopathy.

A revised portrait of psychopaths – Harvard Gazette

Parental Alienation

when most people hear the word psychopath, they immediately think of a Hannibal Lecter-style serial killer who is cold, calculating, emotionless, willing to do or say anything to get their desire.

And they’re not alone. For decades, researchers studying psychopathy have characterized the disorder as a profound inability to process emotions such as empathy, remorse, or regret.

A recentstudy, though, suggests that psychopaths are not incapable of feeling emotions like regret and disappointment. What they cannot do, it seems, is make accurate predictions about the outcomes of their choices.
