Neuropsychiatric Conditions

Neuropsychiatric conditions are mental disorders that are typically attributed to diseases that originate from the nervous system. These diseases greatly impair the health of those affected by them and impact their ability to learn, work, and emotionally cope. Luckily, researchers in the neuropsychiatry field are making great headway in determining the biological basis on these diseases. In neuropsychiatry, neuropsychiatric conditions fall into eight categories:

Addiction
Addiction is a psychological and physiological dependence on a substance or activity

Childhood and Development
These conditions are concerned with both neurological and behavioral development in childhood and adolescence, resulting in disorder and impairment. Some examples include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, and tic disorders.

Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are a condition that is a product of reaction to physical growth and psychological development in children, adolescents, and adults. The major forms of eating disorders are Anorexia Nervosa, and Bulimia Nervosa.

Degenerative Diseases
These conditions refer to diseases such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s. Degenerative diseases mark a decline in cognitive ability and often affect the elderly.

Mood Disorders
Mood disorders are serious medical conditions that are often misdiagnosed. They are a result of complicated interactions between genetic, environmental, and biochemical factors. This includes bipolar disorder, depression.

Neurotic Disorders
These are a class of mental disorders that involve mental distress and obsessive thought patterns. This includes Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, trichotillomania, and anxiety disorder.

Psychosis
This describes a mental state where the patient has lost touch with reality. This includes but is not limited to hallucinations, delusions, bizarre behaviors, difficulty assimilating with society and social expectations, and disorganized thinking. This includes, but is not limited to, schizophrenia.

Sleep Disorders
Affecting more than 10% of the population, these conditions include sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia, parasomnia, and REM.
