RIMAs competitively block MAO-A- False . Is it Mao b

Thought echo is an elementary hallucination- False

109. Trail making test is useful in testing executive functioning in frontal lobe dementia.??

Trail making test consists of Trails a and Trails b where numbers and alphabets are arranged in disarray and the patient has to join them in a logical sequence. It tests executive functioning but i am not sure about frontal lobe dementia[ Advanced, early stage]. I will go for true bcos if u start thinking too much, it is a worry.    

Folks, i am not sure if seperation- individuation is one of erikson's stages. If i am wrong i stand corrected.
