During World War II, the U.S. Indian Service conducted social science experiments regarding governance among Japanese Americans imprisoned at the Poston, Arizona, camp. Researchers used an array of techniques culled from anthropological culture and personality studies, psychiatry, psychology, medicine, and public opinion research to probe how the personality traits of the confined Japanese-Americans and camp leaders affected the social interactions within each group and between them. The research drew on prior studies of Indian personality in the US Southwest, Mexico's Native policies, and indirect colonial rule...

PURPOSE: Pelvic fractures are usually the result of high-energy trauma, and sexual dysfunction after a pelvic fracture is an often complication. Though organic pathologies can be the reason for sexual disorders, psychological factors following a trauma may also be linked to sexual problems. We aimed to evaluate the frequency of sexual dysfunction after pelvic fractures, and help these patients with their usually undisclosed sexual problems, and offer them support. MATERIALS AND METHODS: During a 4-year period, between June 2008 and May 2012, 40 male patients (out of 57) with a mean age of 42...

INTRODUCTION: Sexual dysfunction can occur due to biological problems, relationship problems, lack of proper sexual knowledge or a combination of these. India is often known as the land of Kamasutra. But as far as sexuality research is concerned, there is a paucity of relevant data from India. In view of this, we conducted a study to assess the psychosocial profile of males presenting with sexual dysfunction to psychiatry out-patient department of a tertiary medical hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Hundred consecutive male patients presenting with sexual dysfunction were screened using Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale for clinical sexual dysfunction and after obtaining their informed consent were included in this study...

The purpose of this investigation was to determine how utilization of telepsychiatry affected access to care and costs of providing mental health care in correctional facilities. METHODS: A literature review complemented by a semistructured interview with a telepsychiatry practitioner...

Telepsychiatry provides a helpful resource to rural, poor, and isolated communities for whom traditional psychiatry may not be an option. Focusing on a tribally run behavioral health clinic, this article describes the clinic's transition from traditional psychiatry to telepsychiatry and then delineates benefits and challenges of telepsychiatry in this setting. Telepsychiatry is recommended based on the experiences of this clinic serving a large southwestern Native American community.

BACKGROUND: The development of new antidepressant drugs has reached a plateau. There is an unmet need for faster, better, and safer medications, but as placebo-response rates rise, effect sizes shrink, and more studies fail or are negative, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly reluctant to invest in new drug development because of the risk of failure. In the absence of an identifiable human pathophysiology that can be modeled in preclinical studies, the principal point of leverage to move beyond the present dilemma may be improving the information gleaned from well-designed proof-of-concept (POC) studies of new antidepressant drugs with novel central nervous system effects...

This column describes a recent Supreme Court case, Clark v. Arizona, in which an adolescent who had schizophrenia was convicted of first-degree murder of a police officer who he believed was a hostile space alien. The Arizona courts had rejected his insanity defense as well as a second defense that he lacked the required intent to commit the crime (mens rea) because his delusions interfered with his knowing that the victim was a police officer. The Court ultimately declined to overturn Arizona's rules regarding the insanity defense and mens rea...

A review showed that 254 were cancelled but eventually took place (5.9%), while 148 never took place (3.4%). The cost of a teleconsultation to the service provider was, at minimum, 228 US dollars. Telepsychiatry accounted for all the missed consultations that eventually took place, and 92% of these were from three of the six sites referring telepsychiatry patients...

The authors sought to establish the financial cost of involuntary court-ordered evaluations and potential strategies for reducing these costs. Medical charges from the time of admission to the time of the court hearing were calculated for 998 patients who received involuntary court-ordered evaluations at the department of psychiatry of the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1999. The average cost of an involuntary court-ordered evaluation was 8,236 dollars, and the average cost per day was 686 dollars...

Stuidies show that distinctive (e.g., attractive) people are better remembered than typical people (B. L. Cutler & S. D. Penrod, 1995). We investigated the effect of a Black person's presence on recognition accuracy for surrounding White individuals. Regarding eyewitness accuracy for an event, we expected more errors for White targets accompanied by Black confederates (experimental condition) than by White confederates (control). A staged accident was witnessed by participants, followed by a lineup. In 3 experiments, identification accuracy decreased in the experimental conditions, relative to control...
