What is Sociopath or Antisocial personality disorder?



Personality disorders are a group of mental illnesses that alter the way a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with other mental health conditions, such as depression, may experience symptoms that undermine their ability to feel good or to have normal relationships. Personality disorders, by contrast, affect a person's entire personality and their ability to function in culturally "normal" ways across many contexts.
Children cannot be diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder. Children with a pattern of disregarding the rights and needs of others may be diagnosed with a conduct disorder.

Signs and symptoms

A person cannot be diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder based on a single action. Behaviours that are explained by something else, such as addiction, trauma, or a cognitive disability, will also not be diagnosed as antisocial personality disorder. People with antisocial personality disorder struggle to follow or understand social rules about how to interact with others. They fail to see other people as beings worthy of consideration, kindness, or rights. They may not feel empathy or guilt. However, not all people with antisocial personality disorder act on these emotions, nor do all people who violate the rights of others have a mental health condition.

Causes and risk factors

While the exact cause of antisocial personality disorder is unknown, genetic, environmental, and cultural factors may all play a role in its development. People who are exposed to childhood trauma, whose parents have a personality disorder, or whose parents had an alcohol addiction appear to be more vulnerable to developing antisocial personality disorder. It also affects more men than women.

Nuts strengthen your brain, EEG study shows



Pistachios were shown to induce the strongest gamma waves, which are associated with improved cognition and learning.
More and more studies are revealing that nuts are great for your health, with benefits ranging from better cardiovascular health to boosted memory and cognition. A new study has looked at the brainwaves triggered by nut consumption, and it found further evidence for their cognitive benefits. Nuts have high concentrations of flavonoids — that is, antioxidants believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancerous, and heart protective effects.
Research has shown that flavonoids can enter areas of the brain's hippocampus that are responsible for learning and memory. These flavonoids are thought to induce Neuroprotective effects, leading to "neurogenesis," or the "birth" of new neurons, as well as improving the blood flow to the brain.


But how would these benefits translate into the brain's electric activity? The researchers wanted to find out, so they asked study participants who regularly consumed a variety of nuts to let an electroencephalogram (EEG) measure their brain activity. These researchers used participants who regularly consumed almonds, cashews, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts.
And they were asked to let an EEG measure their brain-waves as they were experiencing a "sequence of enhancing sensory awareness tasks ranging from cognition of past experience, visualization, olfaction, taste, and finally consumption of nuts." These sequences were varied so that the EEG could measure wave band activity across nine different cortical regions.
Gamma waves are associated with perception, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, and information processing and retention, and they are generally thought to improve cognitive processing.
Delta waves are linked with a healthy immune response and deep, or non-REM, sleep. Both delta and gamma waves were highest with pecan nuts.
The researchers also looked at the antioxidant concentration of each different kind of nut and found that walnuts had the highest levels of the substance, followed by pecans and cashews.
Overall, all six nut varieties had high levels of the beneficial antioxidants.
"This study provides significant beneficial findings by demonstrating that nuts are as good for your brain as they are for the rest of your body."

NEUROLOGISTS 2018

About Conference


 Conference Series  organizes 1000+ Global Events inclusive of 300+ Conferences, 500+ Workshops and 200+ symposiums on various topics of Science and Technology across the globe with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 500+ Open access journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed Scientists as Editorial Board members.

Conference Series scientific events are the specially designed cluster of a program that provides a common platform where industry meets academia to discuss the recent issues and happening. It serves as a bridge between researchers from academia and industry enhanced by its well organized scientific sessions, plenary lectures, poster presentations, world-class exhibitions, diverse symposiums, highly enriched workshops and B2B meetings. These events emphasize the knowledge of all participants in different sectors and fields.

Conference Series invites all the participants from all over the worlds to attend our upcoming 12th Global Neurologists Annual Meeting on Neurology and Neurosurgery held on May 21-22, 2018  at Singapore.

Neurologists 2018 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Neurology Treatment and Neurosurgery. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Neurology is the study of injuries, disorders, diagnosis and treatment of the brain, spine and nervous system including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissues. There More than 600 known neurological disorders  are there which affects our nervous system severely but still for most of the diseases treatment options are very limited and research is going on. According to a global study conducted by WHO 8 out of 10 disorders are neurological problems in which 3 are highest disability classes. Every year 6.8 million people are dying all over the world due to neurological disorders or injury. In Europe nearly 38% of total population is suffering from a brain disorder and in United States Stroke is the third leading cause of death.

   Target Audience:


  • Neurology Scientists/Research Professors
  • Physicists/Chemists
  • Junior/Senior research fellows of Neuroscience Field/ Clinical neuroscience Field/ Nursing Science/ Health Care.
  • Clinical  Neurology and Psychology Students
