I have some Qs I'm uncertain about. Help appreciated!

Verbal fluency is affected EArly in frontal lobe function

Verbal fluency is affected in a right frontal lobe lesion

A tingling sensation before seizure indicates  TLE

The paranoid schizoid position causes developmental delay

The paranoid shcizoid position predisposes to psychiatric disorders

Excessive weight loss can be caused by fluoxetine

SSRIs can be given with MAOIs

I know some of these appear obvious but answers with references or from courses helpful. Thanks and Good luck!
