Theories of Delusional Disorders : An Update and review


Kunert, H J; Norra, C; Hoff, Paul (2007). Theories of Delusional Disorders : An Update and review. Psychopathology, 40(3):191-202.

Abstract

Delusional syndromes can occur in a number of psychiatric, neurological or other disorders. They can also be caused by neurotoxic agents (e.g., heavy metals) as well as substance addiction. There are several hypotheses on the underlying cognitive or emotional processes associated with organic factors of delusional disorders, depending on the patient groups examined and the methods used. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review and critical assessment of the various, rather heterogeneous theories in this field.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
