Last minute doubts - Part 1 ISQs

14 posts in this topic

Guys I have some last minute doubts. Can u be kind enough to post replies ?  Part 1 exam is day after tomorrow !!!

STEM A

1)   Social learning theorists make use of factor analysis in personality assessments

2)   Circularity is associated with Piaget

3)   Partial amnesia is characteristic of impaired consciousness

4)   The prevalence of depression in Alzheimer's is 10%

5)   Depression in care givers of patients with dementia is correlated to the severity of dementia

6)   Lack of objective depressed mood is compatible with a diagnosis of pseudo dementia

7)   Verbal fluency is affected by r sided frontal lobe lesion

8)   Upto 50 % of Capgras syndrome are caused by organic reasons

9)   Psycho-motor retardation is generally accepted as one of the negative symptoms of

schizophrenia

10) A person can safely eat cheese two weeks after discontinuation of Phenelzine

11) Moclobemide does not interact with tyramine

12) Phenezine can be used in the treatment of anxiety disorders (I know it is used for phobias)

13) Classical conditioning explains how anxiety arises in response to environmental stimuli

14) The concept of assimilation from learning theory is useful in understanding phobias

15) PET studies are used to determine cerebral dominance

STEM B

1)   There are more people with IQ less than 70 as compared to IQ over 130

2)   Fear of loud noises is present at 1 year (I thought it was 6 months)

3)   10% of people on WAIS-R have an IQ greater than 125

4)   WAIS has a standard deviation of 15

5)   Standard deviation more than 15 on WAIS suggests an organic lesion

6)   Trazodone has anti-muscuranic properties

7)   A behavioural assessment of phobia would include an understanding of incubation

8)   A behavioural assessment of phobia would include an understanding of habituation

9)   An example of selective attention is pigeon holing

10) Pigeon holing is seen in histrionic PD

11) Tricyclics increase the level of chlorpromazine (I know the reverse is true)

12) Haloperidol decreases the central action of amphetamines

13) Sensitization is the basis for initiation and maintenance of phobias

14) Overinclusion mechanism is involved in flight of ideas

15) Stroop test is specific for F lobe

Dear Princess,

I think in STEM A - All are false except 5,6,10,11,12 (which I think are true). Not 100% sure though. Any other answers ? :-/

I know what you mean, last minute, I am also fully of doubts.

Anyway, here are some answers/guesses, don't take them for granted though.

1) Social learning theorists make use of factor analysis in personality assessments F

linked to Albert Bandura

• originally applied to attempts to integrate psychoanalysis and learning theory –

tends to focus on nurture rather than biological factors

2) Circularity is associated with Piaget F

typically with family therapy

3) Partial amnesia is characteristic of impaired consciousness Would say F

4) The prevalence of depression in Alzheimer's is 10% F, more than 50 (Oxford, p 623)

5) Depression in care givers of patients with dementia is correlated to the severity of dementia T ???

6) Lack of objective depressed mood is compatible with a diagnosis of pseudo dementia T

7) Verbal fluency is affected by r sided frontal lobe lesion F, it is the dominant FL, Broca area

8) Upto 50 % of Capgras syndrome are caused by organic reasons F, more than half schizophrenia

schizophrenia T

13) Classical conditioning explains how anxiety arises in response to environmental stimuli T

14) The concept of assimilation from learning theory is useful in understanding phobias assimilation is one of Piaget's descriptions

15) PET studies are used to determine cerebral dominance T, although a bit expensive

STEM B

1) There are more people with IQ less than 70 as compared to IQ over 130 F, by definition (both 2 SD from the mean of 100)

9) Psycho-motor retardation is generally accepted as one of the negative symptoms of

schizophrenia T ( its psychomotor slowing---retardation only in depression)

Moclobemide does not interact with tyramine T ( it does if used in excess)

11) Tricyclics increase the level of chlorpromazine (I know the reverse is true) In most places it is said to be F, I read other answers as well ( works both ways)

Furthermore:

STEM C

1) Specific reading disorder is associated with soft neurological signs More likely to be associated with minor neurological abnormalities (Oxf, p 821), so I would say F

2) Syndromal classification is discontinuous T, if it means in the same time categorical

3) Anhedonia can be induced by Barbiturates T, seen it somewhere

4) Piaget described object constancy by the age of 2 T

5) Patient – therapist relationship is crucial in behavioural therapy T

6) Rationalisation is a defence mechanism by Freud not sure, may be later (perhaps Anna Freud)

7) Spatial awareness goes before verbal in dementia F

8) An anorexia nervosa patient can be of normal weight F, criteria includes -15 % of normal body weight

9) Modelling is involved in the development of a PD T

10) &nbsp:lol:ry mouth is a peripheral muscarinic side effect T

11) Intra nasal sprays avoid BBB most say false

12) Propranolol crosses BBB T

13) &nbsp:lol:T occurs 48-72 hours after the last drink F, usually upon wakening, after bl alcohol level falls

14) EMW helps distinguish Depression and AN I would say F, but in many cases I have seen T

15) Splitting is always associated with Projective identification F

STEM D

1) Splitting is associated with hysterical conversion disorders T?

2) Pseudo hallucinations are a form of imagery F

3) Waxy flexibility is plastic resistance to gentle movements T

4) Selective attention is impaired in hysteria and OCD F???

5) MAOIs interact with halothane gas ???

6) TCAs cause sinus bradycardia F

7) Confabulation is a feature of later stages of Korsakoff’s F, usually early, while islinds of remote meory still preserved

8) Fluvoxamine causes weight loss F, but does not cause wt gain either

9) Amiloride is used in lithium induced polyuria F ? (it is a diuretic, why use it?)

10) Syndromal classifications are dimensional F

11) In GAD amenorrhoea may occur T, probably HPA axis dysregulation

12) A 5 yr old will be more scared of a monster than an 8 year old ??? I would say F, a monster is a monster at any age :)

13) Generalisation is a form of adaptation F

14) &nbsp:lol:escriptive Psycho – Pathology involves empathy T

15) Clozapine acts on D3 receptors F, I think

I hope I did not say too much rubbish. Good luck,

Kata

I have more doubts. Any volunteers to help ?

STEM E

1) Implosion therapy relies on extinction

2) Salbutamol + MAOI = Hypertension ?

3) Attachment behaviour is dependent on parental reinforcement

4) Waxy inflexibility is seen in encephalitis

5) For diagnosing mania there should be an elation of mood

6) Most Drugs acting on 5HT2 cause sedation

7) &nbsp:lol:igit span checks the attention for less than 10 seconds

8) Secure attachment behaviour is related to care giver’s sound mental health

9) Apathy is seen in more than 20 % of Alzheimer’s patients

10) Concrete thinking is a part of orbito-frontal obe

11) Pupils non responsive to light is seen in Wernicke’s

12) Learning theory applies even before birth

13) Confabulation helps differentiate dementia and pseudo dementia

14) RIMAs should be discontinued 2 weeks before TCA’s commencement

15) OCD is more common in those with pre morbid obsessive traits
