apparently there were some tricky questions, ...

One of which, something about whether a child growing up with same sex parents is more likely to be homosexual themeslves.

Perhaps its possible thats true but Id doubt it would be PC to say that so very interesting question and curious to know what the official line on this is?

To Vik91-

atrial flutter

aut recessive as skips a generation

Otto

great effort thanks.

automatic behaviour in epilepsy - perplexity? 

Acamprosate - nausea 

self rated scale in depression- beck's.

modafinil in ADHD- histaminergic?

pregabalin-gaba

risk of Ad with apoe 4-x3

kady with 4g memory loss- trabsient global amnesia 

anticipation - fragile x

epilepsy with aura- complex partial.

Depression increased CRH

DNA- exons

eeg in DT- slowing down with occasional spikes

Incentive salience- not sure if it's yearning for cues or belief they'll reunite. I think is the first one.

Pk in pregnancy decreased protein binding.

Test for narcolepsy- I think it was multiple sleep latency test

Was xsome 1 and 14 associated with Alzeimhers?

Yes Vik to both 

Modafinil in ADHD is a very interesting one. Modafinil acts as a weak dopamine reuptake inhibitor similar with cocaine but histamine receptor causes wakefulness, which was what they've asked.

Conservation- concrete op.

A little girl asking her parents how will it be when will have a sibling- preconceptual.

 

So many with close answers 

Child from gay family- decrease level of family cohesion? I don't know about this. Could be the stigma answer.

EMI- narcolepsy ?during rem sleep and something else

night terrors- ?cannot remember and beginning of sleep

I am pretty sure that was a flutter. Not fibrilation as the interval between qrs was equal. There was no obvious p wave. 

Williams is Fish, got that wrong.

that's right vik.

in the young chap who smoked cannabis -? Kinaesthetic hallucinations. I have colleagues who answered paraschemazia. 

Generativity vs stagnation-40-65

child at 4 up- initiative vs guilt.

got both wrong

tgere was one about a child who learnt mum is separate but present- individuation phase- practising.

 

 

Night terrors in NREM that's why we can't remember them and nightmares in REM which we can remember.

there was one about PTSD- decreased R.E.M. Latency? I got this wrong though.

CATIE- ?41-50% metabolic syndrome

corpus callosum ?ant cerebral art.

working memory?prefrontal cortex

Not sure about CATIE- I put 30%.

the rest of your answers are correct.

develolmental delay- hold head up by 7 months. As hypotonia is first and most important sign of Dev delay. Some put rolling from back to front. Don't know?

Oh yes.... all three

babies have the red reflex and pupillary reflex... that's the only thing they have;)

 

Too much psychology though for my liking... if it was Freud at least.

-There was a question about Empathy and Theory of Mind , asking when will it be lowest or highest?? Deaf kid with 2 deaf parents???

- Children who are callous and unemotional --> Increased impulsive novel & interesting dangerous acts???

- ECG: I think all of my colleagues chose Sinus Tachy ' it was regular R-R with HR of 110 I guess '

- Epigenetics ' DNA Methylation , Covalent Histone modification ?? Two answers??

-  Endosome function --> ' HO 'Hydrogen Peroxide

-Slurred speech + Nasal intonation --> LMNL??

-Gene for Nondementing cognitive impairment+ Disinhibition + Pill rolling ?Neurexin; I believe  it's Parkinson's' Other options were for Dysbindin for Schizophrenia, Progranulin for FTD, and others 

-AUTISM ' Dx criteria and classification  ' I chose ' Autism extending to adulthood is present in ICD-10 ' ??

- Development Q --> I chose it's considered delayed when 9 months old and can't roll ' they're supposed to do it at 6 months '

- ALZ MRI --> Temporo-patietal degeneration?

-Frontal Dementia Male : Female ratio -->  I chose 1:3 ' although other sources say 1:2

-Disease with 1/4 of offspring affected  --> Wilson??

-ECT associated chemical change  ? increased HIAA or NE??

-there was a question about Schizophrenia endophenotype --> P450??

-There was a question with ' a typo ' I guess! " Maher's " explanation for delusions?? Projection and splitting ' Do they mean Mahler's? '

-Smoking cessation aid used, was effective, but the patient complained of sedation? Bupropion?? ' I know it's not associated with marked sedation '

- Neurotransmission in autonomic ganglia ' can't remember that question exactly ' ??  Acetyl Choline

Does anyone recall the exact wording of a genetics EMI question, which has been flagged as a "badly written question", something like

25% of children affected when just one parent has this disorder?

Of course Wilsons is recessive but it would need both parents to be carriers. There is not many situations where 25% offspring affected with just one parent affected!

Oh no no no Cozmo, is Maher with his delusions he explains Capgras.

Role of endosomea- not sure about peroxide. I've got the wrong answer anyway.

hiw do you treat epilepsy in patient with clozapine- valproate

doctor doesn't breach confidentiality as his patient might not attend appointments- virtue ethics or consequentialism?

There were some questions ridiculously easy,

maybe worth putting them here for next generation 

commonest se of clozapine - constipation

most teratothegenic psychotropic- valproate

what do offer in hyperprolactinaemia- olanzapine

the guy who developed fluctuating bp pyrexia after rapid sedation- nms.

lady with amenorrhea- pregnancy test.

girl who developed serotonergic reaction on day 3 with venlafaxine- sibutramine

-Commonest side effect of Acamprosate??? after googling it's the G.I.T side effects ' mainly Diarrhea and Nausea ' I don't remember diarrhea was among the options, but nausea was.

-For the Maher's delusion question: As far as I remember the question was asking about the way he explained delusions. I don't recall Passivity was among the options. The options as I remember were ' Top-down processing, Splitting and projection, and 2 others I can't recall ' .

-For the ethics questions --> Consequentialism ' Googled it and it showed a similar example in the first page of the search result  '  " e.g. No one should commit robbery, because it might affect the stock market! something like that :)
