Keynote: Auditory hallucinations: where do they come from?
Time : 10:00-10:45
Professor Peter Woodruff MBBS, PhD, MRCP (UK), FRCPsych. (UK) is Head of Mental Health Research at Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar; Professor of Psychiatry Weill Cornell-Qatar Medical College and Visiting Professor of Psychiatry at Sheffield University, UK where he set up the internationally renowned Sheffield Cognition and Neuroimaging Laboratory (SCANLab). He previously worked at the Maudsley Hospital and Institute of Psychiatry, London; Baltimore USA and as a Fulbright Fellow at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital. His research interests are in understanding the causes and mechanisms of mental illness.
Auditory hallucinations are common and distressing symptoms that occur in a number of conditions including schizophrenia. Various hypotheses have been suggested as to their pathophysiological mechanism.
This work describes a series of neuroimaging studies that provide evidence to support the hypothesis that:
1.auditory hallucinations derive from excessive reactivity of sensory cortical regions invoked by auditory sensory perception
2.that those reactive regions involve specific modules that process aspects of auditory perception that, together, contribute to how real those percepts are experienced
The model proposed is one which goes some way to explaining why these experiences are real to those who perceive them, in the absence of an external stimulus, and may provide pointers towards new approaches to treatment.

International association for the study of game addictions (IASGA), Switzerland
Title: Clinical and neurobioligical features of gambling disorders and internet-gaming disorders
Dr.Tetiana Zinchenko, the president of the International association for the study of game addictions (IASGA)/Switzerland, PhD, psychotherapist, psychologist, rehabilitologist, practicing doctor in private practice. Practical experience of 20 years in psychiatry, psychotherapy, psychological counseling. Experience in specialized clinics. Last 10 years in private practice and public organizations. Over the last 5 years, I have been specializing in group and individual psychotherapy and rehabilitation of people with various behavioural addictions.
In the presented work the acutance and relevance of the growth in behavioral addictions problem associated with gaming activities, such as gambling disorder (GD) and Internet gaming disorder (IGD) is demonstrated on the materials of numerous studies. These studies address both the prevalence and negative clinical and social consequences of these addictions.The gaming industry is developing at a tremendous pace and today is a multi-billion dollar business with billions of active players of all ages, starting with preschool children. Information technologies of involvement and retention in the game are constantly being improved. Which leads to an increase in problem and pathological players.
The characteristic clinical and neurobiological features of these addictions, personality changes and negative social consequences are highlighted. The emphasis is not on the common clinical manifestations to all addictions, but on the specific to them disorders. Such as: the rapid formation and development of addiction to the stage where the game becomes the dominant need in human life with the replacement of even basic needs; episodes of altered state of consciousness (game trance) with impaired perception of time, events in the game, memory of them, affective narrowing of consciousness and changes in self-identification; the predominance of the cognitive component in the impulsive-compulsive syndrome, thoughts quickly become obsessive and develops a very intense and generalized attraction to the game (craving), with almost no struggle of motives; high suicidality: ideas in 50-80%, attempts in 15-31% of players. At IGD this question is not investigated. The rapid increasing of the personality changes, depression, anxiety disorders and social maladjustment.
Behavioral dependencies associated with IGD and GD gaming activities require deep and comprehensive study. The materials of this report can be useful in clinical practice to develop effective treatments for these disorders.

Internal medicine residents cite lack of psychiatric knowledge/training as a barrier to providing adequate patient care (Hemming and Loeb). While family medicine programs have a behavioral health rotation built into their residency, most internal medicine programs in the United States do not. Gaining knowledge surrounding psychiatric issues during early years of training can allow internal medicine residents to function more efficiently during senior experiences when managing care teams. Our aim was to observe if a standardized curriculum can improve knowledge amongst internal medicine residents in regards to assessing capacity and managing involuntary holds (two common reasons for consultation at LAC+USC hospital). Internal medicine interns (PGY1) were provided with a one-hour lecture created by psychiatry residents Participation was voluntary and instruction was provided at the LAC+USC Medical Center during didactic hours. Primary outcomes were 1) increase in self-efficacy of internal medicine residents and 2) increase in knowledge base surrounding the above two topics. On post-exam analysis, we found self-efficacy to be significantly improved in all domains. Knowledge base showed increase on post-exam but was not significant at p value of <0.5. This sutdy supports the notion that a curriculum created by psychiatry residents can be utilized in subsequent years of training and applied to other disciplines for the purposes of increased collaborative care in a county setting

Title: Obesity, alcohol use disorders and bariatric surgery Screening bariatric surgery patients with Ethyl glucuronide

The relationship between obesity, alcohol use disorders and bariatric surgery has gained attention over the last years, especially since the prevalence of both obesity and bariatric surgery has been on the rise. It is therefore essential to correctly screen alcohol use in this population. We aimed at evaluating alcohol use with EtG, in combination with the AUDIT-C questionnaire, in bariatric surgery candidates in order to ascertain whether EtG might help to clarify and validate patients’ self-reported measures of alcohol drinking patterns.
We performed a cross-sectional evaluation including AUDIT-C and EtG. 197 participants accepted participation and completed the assessment. From them, 68.5% were women and 31.5% men, with a mean age of 46.7 years (range 18 – 66 years). The number of risky drinkers identified with the AUDIT-C was 14 (7.1%). EtG was positive in 29 patients. In the logistic regression models, EtG and sex were positive predictors of risky drinking as measured by the AUDIT-C questionnaire.
Our results support the use of a direct ethanol metabolite such as EtG in the screening of bariatric surgery candidates, not as a substitute of other screening instruments such as validated questionnaires, but as a synergistic tool that can potentially increase the validity of the evaluation.
