BACKGROUND: Epidemiological studies of the oral lesions are scarce and less frequent are those made in the dermatological field. The lack of a standardized design methodology has resulted in a large discrepancy in the study of the prevalence of oral lesions. In the Centro Dermatológico Dr. Ladislao de la Pascua, Mexico, the diversity of our patients' oral lesions is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To describe the prevalence of oral disorders diagnoses at Oral pathology service of Centro Dermatológico Dr. Ladislao de la Pascua. MATERIAL AND METHOD: An observational, descriptive, cross-sectional and retrospective study was made with all clinical records of patients who presented to Oral pathology clinic of the Centro Dermatológico Dr. Ladislao de la Pascua from 2010 to 2014. This was a non-probability sampling of consecutive cases. Study variables were described by frequencies and proportions. We used the Spearman r° to describe the relationship between oral and dermatological diagnosis. All tests were performed with a confidence level of 95% and p < 0.05. This was performed with the SPSS version 21. RESULTS: 1,670 records were reviewed of which only 532 medical records met the selection criteria. The 41 % of oral disorders standed up for infectious disorders (mainly Candida in 29%), 24% for benign tumors, 10% for bullous diseases, 7% for pigmentary disorders, 6% for ulcerative processes and 6% for inflammatory changes. CONCLUSIONS: A high prevalence of infectious entities was observed in this research. Differences in frequency and type of lesions were obtained in comparison to other studies, which could be related to the type of studied patients. Randomized prospective studies are needed in the Mexican general population.

Neuropsychoanalysis | Year: 2017
Borderline pathology is one of the most frequent diagnoses in psychoanalytic practice. Its features are different from a psychiatric point of view and from a psychoanalytic one. The deep psychic pain present from an affective perspective does not always match the symptomatic character features commonly related to this organization. The pain comes from a narcissistic injury, causing the presence of latent depression, vague anxiety and anaclitic object relations, all related to anxiety about object loss. These psychodynamic features can contribute to an addictive vulnerability that frequently recruits cannabis as its chosen drug because of its neurobiological impact on the psychological functioning of the patient, of which he is usually unaware. This paper aims to describe the neuropsychodynamic understanding of a borderline patient who used cannabis to deal with pain derived from a narcissistic injury that exceeded his capacity to use purely psychological defenses, forcing him to look for external ones provided by this drug. The hypotheses presented in this paper come from case study material that used a neuropsychoanalytic integration to modify the technique applied in the treatment. Psychoanalysis provides helpful hypotheses for working with these patients, who deserve the best treatment possible for the intense psychic pain that drives them to engage in self-destruction while trying to feel better. Because of the neurochemical modifications induced in the patient, treatment can be better understood from a neuropsychoanalytic point of view. More research is needed to better refine our theoretical models and treatment of these difficulties. © 2017 International Neuropsychoanalysis Society.

Insomnia is the most frequent alteration of sleep. It causes an impact on all spheres of the individual, its causes are multiple and have diverse origins. The International Classification of Sleep Disorders in its second edition is currently in existence. This classification allows us to distinguish the various sleep disorders based on the description of the essential characteristics, demographic data, predisposing factors, onset, course, complications, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis and others. Aiming to disseminate the diagnostic criteria for the different types of insomnia, this review is presented in two sections, specially targeted to health professionals related to the clinical area of neuroscience and mental health to make effective diagnostics in a practical way. Following is the first section of the review. ©INNN, 2010.

Neuroscience was the basic science behind Freuds psychoanalytic theory and technique. He worked as a neurologist for 20 years before being aware that a new approach to understand complex diseases, namely the hysterias, was needed. Solms coined the term neuropsychoanalysis to affirm that neuroscience still belongs in psychoanalysis. The neuropsychoanalytic field has continued Freuds original ideas as stated in 1895. Developments in psychoanalysis that have been created or revised by the neuropsychoanalysis movement include pain/relatedness/opioids, drive, structural model, dreams, cathexis, and dynamic unconscious. Neuroscience has contributed to the development of new psychoanalytic theory, such as Bazans (2011) description of anxiety driven by unconscious intentions or phantoms. Results of adopting the dual aspect monism approach of idiographic psychoanalytic clinical observation combined with nomothetic investigation of related human phenomena include clarification and revision of theory, restoration of the scientific base of psychoanalysis, and improvement of clinical treatments. By imbricating psychoanalytic thinking with neuroscience, psychoanalysts are also positioned to make contributions to neuroscience research. Freuds original Project for a Scientific Psychology/Psychology for Neurologists can be carried forward in a way that moves psychoanalysis into the twenty-first century as a core contemporary science (Kandel, 1999). Neuroscience as the basic science of psychoanalysis both improves the field, and enhances its scientific and cultural status.

The Experimental Analysis of Behavior has a close interdisciplinary collaboration with neuroscientists in both de US and Europe; in Mexico this collaboration is still infrequent. The present paper addresses the epistemological affinities between both disciplines. The paper also presents some experimental models that could be useful for neuroscientists. Specifically the paper presents the following models: Acquisition with delayed reinforcement, Matching under concurrent schedules, and Temporal discrimination.

The present study assessed the possibility that lever pressing by rats, will increase, if this response is correlated with the presentation of exteroceptive stimuli, previously paired with primary reinforcement. Naïve rats were exposed to ten 30 minute sessions where a FT 60-s schedule presented food correlated with a 3-s blackout and the operation of the food delivery magazine. After the training phase was over, an acquisition phase began, subjects could receive one of four different schedules for twenty consecutive sessions: 1) CRF; 2) FR1, FT 2-s; 3) FR1, FT 5-s or 4) FR1, FT 10-s; nine subjects were exposed to each schedule. Results produced by the conditioned reinforcement conditions were compared with conditions where: 1) primary reinforcement was delivered during the acquisition phase, 2) blackout and magazine operation occurred during the training phase but in the absence of food, and 3) subjects remained in the experimental chamber without any programmed stimulus presentation during the training phase. Both the primary reinforcement and the conditioned reinforcement conditions produced delay gradients; the latter was considerably steeper than the former. Results were discussed in terms of their similarity with previous studies; they were also discussed in terms of the ongoing debate regarding the empirical validity of the conditioned reinforcement concept.
