Abstract Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) shows the potential to modulate local brain activity, thus resulting in a modulatory action on neurocircuitries implicated in the pathophysiology of Gambling Disorder (GD). We report the case of a GD patient treated with two weeks of high frequency (15 Hz) rTMS over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). At baseline and after rTMS treatment the patient underwent a SPECT examination with (123)I-FP-CIT tracer, to test changes in dop...

ABSTRACTNovel psychoactive substances (NPSs) have currently become a major public health concern because of relatively easy accessibility to these compounds and difficulty in identifying them with routine laboratory techniques. Here, we report the 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) case study of a 23-year-old man who developed a substance-induced psychotic disorder after having intravenously injected himself with an unspecified amount of ...

Abstract Alcohol use disorder (AUD) represents a frequent comorbidity in patients with bipolar disorder (BD), with a prevalence rate of 30%–35%. AUD and BD show common genetic and neurophysiological pathways. Alcohol misuse negatively affects long-term mood stability, influencing several neurotransmitter functions and disrupting sleep architecture. Alcohol may also aggravate bipolar disorder neuro-progression via oxidative stress. Allostatic changes in the brain reward system may render BD patie...

Schizophrenia is a chronic and debilitating illness affecting about 0.5% of the population. Antipsychotics are the mainstay of the pharmacological treatment of such burdensome condition, although documented that roughly 20% up to 60% of the patients with schizophrenia do not respond sufficiently to conventional treatments. These patients may have a good response when clozapine is introduced with a great efficacy often seen in everyday clinical practice. However, it has been estimated that around...

Despite the continuous advancement in neurosciences as well as in the knowledge of human behaviors pathophysiology, currently suicide represents a puzzling challenge. The World Health Organization (WHO) has established that one million people die by suicide every year, with the impressive daily rate of a suicide every 40 s. The weightiest concern about suicidal behavior is how difficult it is for healthcare professionals to predict. However, recent evidence in genomic studies has pointed out the...

Pleasure is more than a mere sensory event, but rather it can be conceptualized as a complex, multiform experience involving memory, motivation, homeostasis and, sometimes, negative affects. In “Instincts and their Vicissitudes”(1915) Freud defined drive as a “a measure of the demand made upon the mind to work in consequence of its connection with the body”, underlining both drive bodily nature and its quantitative characteristics. According to Freud, affect is a perceptual modality that registe...
