Abstrakt und Graphiken In diesem Kapitel wird ein Model präsentiert, das zwei unabhängige, nicht miteinander verknüpfte neuronale Regelkreise, den wärmeabgaberegulierenden Sympathikus und das wärmeproduktionsregulierende motorische System vereint. Nach der aktuellen Sichtweise wird die Regelung der Körpertemperatur (KT) über diese neuronalen Regelk...

Jeder Lockdown kann als ein „kalter Entzug“ von Ressourcen angesehen werden. Auch als „Schutzmassnahme“ stellt die Isolation immer eine negative Lebensveränderung dar. Je länger eine solche Belastung anhält, desto weniger Menschen werden psychisch damit zu recht kommen können, da eben diese Ressourcen, wie z.B. das Treffen von Freunden, entzogen wu...

As a psychiatrist and a researcher in the field of stress with a great interest I read the review Social stress models in rodents: Towards enhanced validity, from J.M. Koolhaas, S.F. de Boer, B. Buwalda, P. Meerlo. published in Neurobiology of Stress (6 (2017) 104e-12), which I found to be excellent. Here, I would like to share some of my thought...

Descartes, W. James, Jung, Atmanspracher, and D. Chopra are just some of many philosophers, psychologists etc. who attempted, from many different starting points, to solve the aspects of mind-mater interaction. Many questions still stay open. Here is proposed a new approach to this problem supported by the knowledge from physiology, psychology, psy...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The relationship between the stressor (the threat) on the one side, and mental and physical disorders on the other side, has been well documented. The energy released by activation of a) the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and b) hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis has been seen as existential for survival of the individual who appraises one...
Article
The relationship between stress, depression, anxiety, and functional somatic disorders has been well documented, as well as their strongly negative interaction. A substantial body of research tries to link these conditions. These efforts have established several conceptual bridges that connect stress, psychological alterations, and coexistence of c...
Article
The increasing prevalence of mental illness among parents always represents a stressor affecting the biopsychosocial development of a child. However, due to varying inherent resilience factors, not all children are affected to the same extent. The presence of evidence-based resilience factors is able to minimise or prevent the adverse effects assoc...
Article
Atypical antipsychotics (AA) have revolutionized the treatment of schizophrenia, now being the treatment of choice for patients with this disorder. The positive therapeutic experience with the AA in the treatment of these disorders and their favourable adverse-effect profiles, has encouraged clinicians to extend their usage beyond their initial reg...

“A Common Language for the First 1000 Days” (www.thefirst1000days.net) is an Erasmus+ project from the Key Action 2, dealing with the use of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a tool for increasing communication among different professionals related to the child’s first 1000 days of life and promoting early detection of disabilities. The goal of “A Common Language for the First 1000 Days” project therefore consists in increasing knowledge and skills for multidisciplinary professionals within the first 1000 days by: a) Adapting the existing ICF training materials towards professionals working with toddlers and their families. b) Increasing the quality of cooperation processes by introducing a common language and comply with ongoing social-political processes.

Here is presented one extended version of order of sequences of acute response to stress. The acute stress response starts from the moment of the contact between one stimulus and sensorium and ends with the spectrum of symptoms: motor, visceral and psychological. In this version is stated that threat/stress induces drop of the body temperature which is contrary to the widely accepted opinion that stress induces hyperthermia. All symptoms of manifested spectrum of acute response to threat/stress are symptoms of GABAergic hypofunction. These symptoms are the arguments for here presented assumption that stress induces hypothermia followed by consequent GABAergic down-regulation.
