Articles on Nervous and Mental Disorders

The brain and spinal cord are composed of very fragile tissue.  The brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord by bony components of the vertebrae.  These organs of the central nervous system fare very well under normal conditions.  But once attacked by disease, once their supply of blood is curtailed, or once they receive a violent mechanical impact, their welfare is in jeopardy.  And when a part of the nervous system is deranged, other parts of the body suffer also.  It can be abnormalities of the personality usually not based on disease, but on the individual's unfavorable adjustment to life, psychological rather than neurological problems.

 

In the psychoneuroses the affected person reacts abnormally to certain conflicting circumstances in his life, but still retains his capacity to think normally and, for the most part, to exercise normal judgment.  The person with a psychoneurosis often realizes that certain of his reactions are different from those of other people.  The psychoneuroses are not forms of insanity but personality disorders in which the behavior, the patterns of thinking, and the emotional responses are abnormal. 

 

In nervous disorders, home treatment is usually not appropriate.  Furthermore, the outcome often depends upon whether the disorder is recognized early enough and cared for properly.  Physicians who specialize in such disorders are psychiatrists.
