The Roots of the Recovery Movement in Psychiatry: Lessons Learned

Because the international psychiatric group enters a brand new period of transformation, this publication explores classes realized from prior efforts with the target of “getting it correct” this time. in keeping with the typical chorus that we all know approximately and ‘do’ restoration already, the authors set the restoration flow in the conceptual framework of significant thinkers and achievers within the background of psychiatry, reminiscent of Philippe Pinel, Dorothea Dix, Adolf Meyer, Harry Stack Sullivan, and Franco Basaglia.

Example text

Electrodes are implanted very precisely into an area of interest, and spontaneous (single cell) neuronal activity during animal behaviour can be recorded. The spatial resolution of this method combined with postmortem confirmation of the electrode location is higher than any imaging mode has achieved so far, and information in the time domain is naturally superior. Recording, rather than stimulation, techniques avoid the problem of current spread (see above). Single-cell recording in frontal cortex can, for example, identify neurons that fire during a delay after presentation of a stimulus, which has to be compared with other stimuli later on.

Damage to any component within the circuit essentially disables the entire loop. The hippocampus has a lamellar organisation, with the lamellae in transverse orientation to the long axis of the structure. Each lamella contains a complete hippocampal circuit loop, an arrangement that is exploited in the study of hippocampal function. Individual living lamellar slices can be isolated after dissection of the hippocampus from experimental animals, and the trisynaptic loop examined electrophysiologically in vitro.

Behavioural neurophysiology — neural optimal control theory Neural optimal control theory has been specifically applied to the frontal–subcortical loops (Baev et al 2002), but it is a general theory of neuronal function (Baev 1998) and possibly much more besides. Alternatives to the theory and experimental studies, which appear consistent with Baev’s theory will both be discussed; although these differ in scope and emphasis. The origin of Baev’s theory lies in extensive experimental work on spinal ‘central pattern generators’ (CPGs).
