The first treatment in biological therapies is chemotherapy; this is the use of drugs to treat a mental illness. Under chemotherapy there are 3 main types of drugs; Antipsychotic, antidepressants and anxiolytic. Anti psychotic drugs are generally used for more severe mental health problems such as schizophrenia. They work by balancing chemicals in the brain such as dopamine as this is linked with there hallucinations. Antidepressants on the other hand by balancing neurotransmitters such as serotonin and epinephrine witch can cause depression if not sufficiently balanced.
Glasgow Coma Scale Dr Gbadamosi P.O Traumatic brain injury can alter a person's conscious state. To asses a person's conscious state following brain injury, doctors use a number of systems and tests.

The scale standardizes consciousness assessment and helps doctors predict patient prognosis.
The American Journal of Nursing, Vol.81, No.6, 1188-1190 Mcmorrow explains her encounter with a manipulative patient and the roots of manipulation. She explains how she was manipulated continuously by one of her patients, once when he had been a patient of hers at a Methadone Clinic and again when she worked at a hospital. Her description points out that the manipulative patient she first encountered at the Methadone Clinic would once again pull the same tactics again. She also points out some solutions to avoid making the same mistakes over again. The author’s position on this was she being manipulated by the patient, how she felt, and her feelings as she was in the nursing profession during this time.
This paper will discuss the details of Ketamine, and how it affects someone under the drug itself, as this was one of the first drugs that was approved in both human and veterinary medicine. It will also discuss ketamine’s reactions when a person is under the drug and the differences with age. To find the answers to these questions I got into contact with an anesthesiologists, and did a short interview on her observations of ketamine, and how she had used it. I spent time at the library researching anesthetics and ketamine to understand the differences between the types of drugs doctors tend to use. I found out that ketamine plays very different roles on three groups of people; the youth, the middle aged people, and the elderly.
In turn, the doctor can then compare these readings against those of a normal functioning brain. One more testing procedure is a SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography) test. A doctor injects a compound that attaches itself to the dopamine receptors in a patient’s brain. The SPECT test takes a picture of the brain and the doctor can look for abnormal functions in the brain. Another form of testing is Autonomic testing.

Franz Mesmer and his ideas and practices are where the term 'mesmerised' comes from. During the late 1800's an English physician James Braid (1795 - 1860) gave mesmerism a scientific explanation believing mesmerism to be a nervous sleep, he coined the word hypnosis which derives from the Greek word Hypnos, meaning sleep. Hypnosis has developed over the years and is today a therapy offered by hypnotherapists who are affiliated to organisations such as the National Hypnotherapy Society and have to follow a code of ethics ensuring rigorous practices are adhered
Selby’s essay discusses his essay in narrative form. The story is being told in the doctor’s perspective. He starts off by telling a story about a woman who started having trouble with her eye vision. She went to the doctor and went in for testing and the doctors found a tumor in her brain. The narrative then goes into great detail about the surgical process, and the tools that he uses to perform the surgery with.
I have just concluded my practical session for the Clinical Hypnotherapy Certificate examination and this essay is written as a refection of my session with my chosen subject. I was asked to use the eye fixation on hand induction, Kroger WS (1977). I had a fairly successful session. There are six stages to hypnosis namely the introduction, the induction, the deepener, the post hypnotic suggestions, awakening and lastly the homework or de-briefing, Alman BM and Lambrough (1992). As the operator, I have to check with the subject on their health status and likes and dislikes to make sure if this induction is suitable for him.
