The September 2010 podcast for the American Journal of Psychiatry covers a number of studies as well as educational material about the paraneoplastic syndrome. The presents articulates clearly and slowly and begins with a work-up of an unusual presentation of psychosis going on to a discussion of the paraneoplastic syndrome. Of particular clinical interest is the discussion of the more recent findings in terms of AMPA receptor antibody associations as well as the syndromes associated with different neoplasms. There is a detailed discussion of a study looking at the negative syndrome and there is an emphasis on a dimensional approach to psychosis that may take place in DSM-V. The podcast ends with a brief discussion of other studies including one establishing an association between histamine release and ADHD. The podcast packs a lot of useful material into 30 minutes.
