21A.215 Medical Anthropology: Culture, Society, and Ethics in Disease and Health (MIT) 21A.215 Medical Anthropology: Culture, Society, and Ethics in Disease and Health (MIT)

Description

This course looks at medicine from a cross-cultural perspective, focusing on the human, as opposed to biological, side of things. Students learn how to analyze various kinds of medical practice as cultural systems. Particular emphasis is placed on Western (bio-) medicine; students examine how biomedicine constructs disease, health, body, and mind, and how it articulates with other institutions, national and international.

24.08J Philosophical Issues in Brain Science (MIT) 24.08J Philosophical Issues in Brain Science (MIT)

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV special element video. This course provides an introduction to important philosophical questions about the mind, specifically those that are intimately connected with contemporary psychology and neuroscience. Are our concepts innate or are they acquired by experience? And what does it even mean to call a concept 'innate'? Are 'mental images' pictures in the head? Is color in the mind or in the world? Is the mind nothing more than the brain? Can there be a science of consciousness? The course includes guest lectures by philosophers and cognitive scientists.

21A.460J Medicine, Religion and Politics in Africa and the African Diaspora (MIT) 21A.460J Medicine, Religion and Politics in Africa and the African Diaspora (MIT)

Description

This course provides an exploration of colonial and postcolonial clashes between theories of healing and embodiment in the African world and those of western bio-medicine. It examines how Afro-Atlantic religious traditions have challenged western conceptions of illness, healing, and the body and have also offered alternative notions of morality, rationality, kinship, gender, and sexuality. It also analyzes whether contemporary western bio-medical interventions reinforce colonial or imperial power in the effort to promote global health in Africa and the African diaspora.

The Genetic Epidemiology of Psychiatric and Substance Abuse Disorders: Multiple Levels, Interactions and Causal Loops

Description

The first of the 2014 Loebel Lectures in Philosophy and Psychiatry, by Professor Kenneth S Kendler I show how recent studies in the genetic epidemiology and molecular genetics of psychiatric and substance use disorders illustrate the complex causal pathways to mental illness. These include gene-environment interaction in the etiology of major depression (MD) and substance use and abuse, gene-social interactions in drug use, environment-environment interaction in the etiology of MD, and gene-environment covariation in the etiology of MD. I will illustrate the role of genetic factors on the comorbidity of psychiatric disorders using both twin and molecular methods, and describe complex developmental models for MD and alcohol use disorder. I will conclude with a classical example of top-down

Mental Health: Depression

Description

Clinical depression is a serious illness which leads to persistent low mood, loss of energy and motivation, and a reduced ability to feel pleasure. It interferes with day-to-day life by producing negative thoughts and a variety of physical symptoms. Indeed physical symptoms are so important that it is more usual for patients with depression to go to their doctor with a bodily complaint than with a complaint about their mood, so it is vital that doctors understand that depression may be a “hidden” part of the picture. According to the WHO Global Burden of Disease study (2000), Depression is the 4th leading cause of disease burden, and is in fact the world's greatest cause of disability. This means that every doctor, in every specialty, will need a basic understanding of the disease and

Mental Health: Bipolar

Description

People with Bipolar Disorder (also known as Manic Depression) experience episodes of high and low mood which disrupt their day-to-day life. The pattern of illness is different in each case; people may experience far more episodes of one mood extreme than the other, while the frequency of episodes is also very variable. Even though this is an episodic illness in which people get better between episodes, research is starting to show that sufferers continue to have difficulties when in remission. The chronically disabling nature of the illness, together with the frequent difficulty in establishing the diagnosis at the outset, means that doctors must have a clear understanding of how to recognise and treat it.

Mental Health: Violence and safety

Description

The vast majority of people with mental illness are not violent. However, violent incidents do occur for a variety of reasons in psychiatric hospitals as well as in general hospitals. It is therefore important for all doctors to be familiar with the reasons why their patients may become violent. We need to know how to prevent incidents from occurring - and when prevention fails, we need to know how to manage violent patients safely and effectively.

Mental Health: Delirium

Description

Delirium is defined as a transient, usually reversible, cause of cerebral dysfunction. The clinical hallmarks are decreased attention span and a waxing and waning type of confusion. Delirium is one of the most frequently overlooked diagnoses in general hospital settings. It is almost always due to physical pathology, but often presents with psychiatric symptoms. Every doctor, whatever their specialty, should know how to recognise and manage this common syndrome.

Mental Health: Schizophrenia

Description

The term, schizophrenia, covers a broad group of disorders which affect the beliefs people have about the world around them. This results in disruption to their day-to-day lives and usually causes distress to them and also their families and friends. They may hear voices speaking when no-one is talking or believe that others are against them when this doesn’t seem to be true: 'positive symptoms' refer to such hallucinations and delusions, 'negative symptoms' include amotivation and social withdrawal and there can also be disorganised communication. Successful treatments include antipsychotic medications, social interventions and family and cognitive behaviour therapy.
