Quotes

"because if we want to show differences in mortality or death"
..."Until Lyn was four and a half years old she couldn't walk, sit or talk," says her mother Pea. "She'll need life-long medication for the seizures. The orthotics need to be regularly adjusted. "Her left leg is not growing properly; last year her Achilles tendon had to be extended by surgery." The cheerful girl attends a special education branch of the Waldorf school in Essen. She has had to endure mental as well as physical difficulties. "She doesn't learn so intensely; her language is dependent on her form on a particular day," her mother says. Lyn’s vision is also affected. The effects of a stroke on a child depend upon other things, on whether the stroke occurs before or during birth or during childhood, says Ronald Straeter from the University Hospital in Munster, Germany. In Germany about 300 children suffer strokes each year. "Children with heart defects have an increased risk," he says. High clotting tendencies in the blood flow between mother and baby can also play a role. "The dilemma is that children do not exhibit ‘classic’ stroke behaviour; they usually show only non-specific symptoms such as being somewhat inactive or flabby, or drinking weakly," Straeter says. One clue that parents may notice within the first few months of a child’s birth is that their child is better able to move on one side than the other. At the slightest suspicion, a detailed neurological examination should be carried out. After a stroke, children have to take blood thinners, to prevent further attacks. Physiotherapy can help to mitigate the effects of the stroke. In one respect the age of child stroke victims works in their favour. "A child's brain has high plasticity. Intact regions in the brain can, to some extent, take over the functions of the damaged areas," says Straeter. That probably explains the steady progress of Lyn. "She has currently surpassed all prognoses. My greatest wish is that she can lead an independent life," her mother says."

"In the brain vasopressin acts as a neuromodulator and is elevated in the amygdala during stress (Ebner, et al. (2002). Eur J Neurosci. 15, 384-8., 'Forced swimming triggers vasopressin release within the amygdala to modulate stress-coping strategies in rats'). It is known that stressful life events can trigger major depression and anxiety (Kendler, et al. (2003). Arch Gen Psychiatry. 60, 789-96, 'Life Event Dimensions of Loss, Humiliation, Entrapment, and Danger in the Prediction of Onsets of Major Depression and Generalized Anxiety') and that both have very high comorbidity, with anxiety often preceding major depression (Regier, et al. (1998). Br J Psychiatry Suppl. 24-8, 'Prevalence of anxiety disorders and their comorbidity with mood and addictive disorders'). The V1a receptor is extensively expressed in the brain and particularly in limbic areas like the amygdala, lateral septum and hippocampus which are playing an important role in the regulation of anxiety. Indeed V1a knock-out mice show a reduction in anxious behavior in the plus-maze, open field and light-dark box (Bielsky, et al. (2004). Neuropsychopharmacology. 29, 483-93, 'Profound impairment in social recognition and reduction in anxiety-like behavior in vasopressin V1a receptor knockout mice'). The downregulation of the V1a receptor using antisense oligonucleotide injection in the septum also causes a reduction in anxious behavior (Landgraf, et al. (1995). Regul Pept. 59, 229-39., 'V1 vasopressin receptor antisense oligodeoxynucleotide into septum reduces vasopressin binding, social discrimination abilities, and anxiety-related behavior in rats'). Vasopressin or the V1a receptor are also implicated in other neuropsychological disorders: genetic studies recently linked sequence polymorphism in the promoter of the human V1a receptor to autistic spectrum disorders (Yirmiya, et al. (2006). 11, 488-94, 'Association between the arginine vasopressin 1a receptor (AVPR1a) gene and autism in a family-based study: mediation by socialization skills'), intranasal administration of vasopressin was shown to influence aggression in human males (Thompson, et al. (2004). Psychoneuroendocrinology. 29, 35-48, 'The effects of vasopressin on human facial responses related to social communication') and vasopressin levels were found to be elevated in schizophrenic patients (Raskind, et al. (1987). Biol Psychiatry. 22, 453-62, 'Antipsychotic drugs and plasma vasopressin in normals and acute schizophrenic patients') and patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (Altemus, et al. (1992). Arch Gen Psychiatry. 49, 9-20, 'Abnormalities in the regulation of vasopressin and corticotropin releasing factor secretion in obsessive-compulsive disorder')."
