Psychopath vs Sociopath Psychopathy and sociopathy are anti-social personality disorders. While both these disorders are the result of an interaction between genetic predispositions and environmental factors, psychopathy is used when the underlying cause leans towards the hereditary. Sociopath is the term used when the antisocial behavior is a result of a brain injury or negative sociological factors like parental neglect, delinquent peers, belief system and upbringing. In recent years, the term psychopath has acquired a specific meaning and the condition is now more widely understood. Psychopaths are incapable of empathy and forming loving relationships. Anti-social personality disorder may result in violent behavior but that is not inevitable. Though psychiatrists often consider and treat sociopaths and psychopaths as the same, criminologists treat them as different because of the difference in their outward behavior.

biopsychology Developmental dyspraxia Developmental coordination disorder (DCD)[1][2][3][4][5] also known as developmental dyspraxia and clumsy child syndrome[6][7][8][9][10] is a chronic neurological disorder beginning in childhood that can affect planning of movements and co-ordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body. Up to 50% of those with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also have DCD.[6][11] It may be diagnosed in the absence of other motor or sensory impairments like cerebral palsy,[12] muscular dystrophy,[6] multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease. Classification[edit] Developmental coordination disorder is classified in the fifth revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as a motor disorder, in the category of neurodevelopmental disorders.[13] Signs and symptoms[edit] Various areas of development can be affected by developmental coordination disorder and these will persist into adulthood,[10] as DCD has no cure.

Dyslexia Dyslexia, or developmental reading disorder,[1] is characterized by difficulty with learning to read fluently and with accurate comprehension despite normal or above-average intelligence.[2][3][4] This includes difficulty with phonological awareness, phonological decoding, processing speed, orthographic coding, auditory short-term memory, language skills/verbal comprehension, and/or rapid naming.[5][6][7] Dyslexia is the most common learning difficulty[8] and most recognized reading disorder. There are other reading difficulties that are unrelated to dyslexia. Classification[edit] Internationally, dyslexia has no single definition; more than 70 names are used to describe its manifestations, characterizations or causes. Numerous symptom-based definitions of dyslexia suggest neurological approaches.

Brain Explorer Sex Crimes: Patterns and Behavior - Ronald M Holmes, Stephen T Holmes ¿Crees que los museos son aburridos? Estos seguro que te dejan boquiabierto Existen dos tipos de personas en el mundo: aquellas que siempre que van de viaje visitan algún museo, o no tienen reparo en hacerlo, y aquellas otras que no pisarían uno ni a cambio de un cheque en blanco. Y es que mucha gente tiene una idea equivocada de estos centros: los cree lleno de antigüedades, turistas japoneses con cámaras de fotos y cuadros que no cabrían en su casa. En absoluto. Dentro de un museo hay mucho más, sobre todo si vas a uno de esos que, en lugar de atesorar obras de arte al uso, guardan en su interior verdaderas e insólitas piezas pensadas para sorprender a sus visitantes. También puede que no sepan que visitar estos lugares es sumamente beneficioso para nuestra salud, como apuntan algunos estudios. Sea de un modo un otro, lo cierto es que parecen ser mayoría los viajeros que sí que visitan los museos que encuentran a su paso. Museo de las piedras con parecidos razonables Sí, como lo lees.
