Oneirophrenia  梦呓性精神病


Oneirophrenia is a hallucinatory, dream-like state caused by several conditions such as prolonged sleep deprivation, sensory deprivation, or drugs (such as ibogaine). From the Greek words “ὄνειρο” (oneiro, “dream”) and “φρενός” (phrenos, “mind”). It has some of the characteristics of simple schizophrenia, such as a confusional state and clouding of consciousness, but without presenting the dissociative symptoms which are typical of this disorder.


Persons affected by oneirophrenia have a feeling of dream-like unreality which, in its extreme form, may progress to delusions and hallucinations. Therefore, it is considered a schizophrenia-like acute form of psychosis which remits in about 60% of cases within a period of two years. It is estimated that 50% or more of schizophrenic patients present oneirophrenia at least once.


Oneirophrenic patients are resistant to insulin and when injected with glucose, these patients take 30 to 50% longer to return to normal glycemia. The meaning of this finding is not known, but it has been hypothesized that it may be due to an insulin antagonist present in the blood during psychosis.


Oneirophrenia was studied in the 1950s by the neurologist and psychiatrist Ladislas J. Meduna (1896-1964), also known as the discoverer of one of the forms of shock therapy, using the drug metrazol.

梦呓性精神病在20世纪50年代由神经学家和精神病学家Ladislas J.Meduna(1896年至1964年)研究发现,是利用药物强心剂发现的其中一种休克疗法。

Psychoanalysts, such as Claudio Naranjo, in the sixties have described the value of ibogaine-induced oneirophrenia for inducing and manipulating free fantasy and dream-like associations in patients under treatment.

六十年代的精神分析学家如Claudio Naranjo描述了抗抑郁药引起的梦呓性精神病的功能,就是促成和操纵接受治疗的患者产生自由幻想和梦幻般的联想。

Although it is still cited in diagnostic manuals of psychiatry, such as DSM-IV and in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), oneirophrenia as a separate entity is out of fashion nowadays.

虽然这个功能仍旧在精神病诊断手册中如DSM – IV和疾病与相关健康问题国际统计分类中被引用,梦呓性精神病这个分离出来的科目至今已经不流行。

Echopraxia  模仿倾向


Echopraxia is the involuntary repetition or imitation of the observed movements of another. It is closely related to echolalia, the involuntary repetition of another’s speech. The etymology of the term is from Ancient Greek: ” ἠχώ (ēkhō) from ἠχή (ēkhē “sound”)” and “πρᾶξις (praksis, “action, activity, practice”)”. Echopraxia is also known as echomotism.[1]

Echopraxia模仿倾向是不自主地重复或模仿所观察到的另一个动作。这也跟echolalia模仿言语症有密切关联,也是不由自主地重复他人的话。这个词的来源是古希腊的ἠχώ (ēkhō)来自ἠχή (ēkhē“发音”)和πρᾶξις (praksis“行动,活动,实践”) 。模仿倾向症也被称为模仿动作(echomotism)。[1]


Even though it is considered a tic, it is a behaviour characteristic of some people with autism,[2] Tourette syndrome, Ganser syndrome, schizophrenia (especially catatonic schizophrenia), some forms of clinical depression and some other neurological disorders.

即使它被认为是口头禅 ,却是那些有自闭症的人的行为特征[2],包括(Tourette)图雷德综合征,(Ganser)冈瑟综合征,精神分裂症(尤其是紧张性精神分裂症),临床抑郁症和其他一些神经系统失常的病症。

Anhedonia  快感缺乏


In psychology and psychiatry, anhedonia (play /ˌænhiˈdoʊniə/ an-hee-doh-nee-ə; Greek: ἀν- an-, “without” + ἡδονή hēdonē, “pleasure”) is defined as the inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable, e.g. hobbies, exercise, social interaction or sexual activity.

在心理学和精神病学里,快感缺乏(希腊语:ἀν- an-, “无”+ ἡδονή hēdonē ,“快感”)被定义为无法体验到一般上都愉快的活动中的乐趣,如嗜好,运动,社交或性事。

Anhedonia can be a characteristic of mental disorders including mood disorders, schizoaffective disorder, schizoid personality disorder and schizophrenia. Affected schizophrenic patients describe themselves as feeling emotionally empty.[1]


Mood disturbances are commonly observed in many psychiatric disorders. Disturbing mood changes may occur resultant to stressful life events and they are not uncommon during times of physical illness.[2] While anhedonia can be a feature of such mood changes, they are not mutually inclusive.

Causes  成因

Researchers theorize that anhedonia may result from the breakdown in the brain’s reward system, involving the neurotransmitter dopamine. Studies by Paul Keedwell, MD, then of King’s College, found that the brains of clinically depressed subjects had to work harder to process rewarding experiences.[3][4]

研究人员立论认为,快感缺乏可能是因为大脑中涉及神经传递素多巴胺的回馈系统崩溃。(King’s College)国王学院的Paul Keedwell医学博士的研究发现,临床实验中的抑郁者的大脑必须更加努力地处理回馈的经验。[3][4]


Significance in depression  抑郁症的意义

As a clinical symptom in depression, anhedonia rates highly in making a diagnosis of this disorder. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) describes a “lack of interest or pleasure” but these can be hard to tell apart given that people become less interested in things which do not give them pleasure. The DSM criterion of weight loss is probably related, and many depressed people with this symptom describe a lack of enjoyment of food. People suffering from anhedonia in association with depression generally feel good in the morning and unhappy in the evenings and can portray any of the non-psychotic symptoms and signs of depression.[5]



Sexual anhedonia  缺乏性快感

Main article: Pleasure Dissociative Orgasmic Disorder


Sexual anhedonia in males is also known as ‘ejaculatory anhedonia’. This condition means that the person will ejaculate with no accompanying sense of pleasure.


The condition is most frequently found in males, but women can suffer from lack of pleasure when the body goes through the orgasm process as well.


Sexual anhedonia may be caused by:


  • Hyperprolactinaemia  超高泌乳素分泌
  • Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), also called inhibited sexual desire  不活跃性欲失调(HSDD),也叫做抑制性欲
  • Low levels of the hormone testosterone  低水平荷尔蒙睾丸激素
  • Spinal cord injury  脊髓损伤
  • Multiple Sclerosis  多发性硬化症
  • Use (or previous use) of SSRI antidepressants[6]  使用(或使用过)SSRI类抗抑郁药物[6]
  • Use (or previous use) of antidopaminergic neuroleptics[7][8]  使用(或使用过)抗多巴胺类的神经松弛剂[7][8]
  • Fatigue  疲劳
  • Physical illness  身体上的疾病

It is very uncommon that a neurological examination and blood tests can determine the cause of a specific case of sexual anhedonia.


Patients may be prescribed sustained-release bupropion to aid in treatment, which has been shown to relieve sexual dysfunction even in patients without depression.[9]
