161. David A. Krebes' Personal Home Page
Includes a thesis work on knot theory and information on schizophrenia.
David A. Krebes
// text for first two pictures I have devoted much of my life to the study of knots . In my Ph.D. thesis (math), I show that a seamless unknotted loop of rope (circle) cannot be twisted in such a way as to intersect the interior of a sphere in the pair of arcs shown in the first picture (this is commonly known as a square knot). Equivalently: If a curve intersects the interior of a sphere in a square knot then it is genuinely knotted (ie. different from a circle). For example in the second picture the loop (follow it around it is indeed a single loop) is knotted: A long rubber band cannot be manipulated into this shape without breaking it and gluing the ends back together. We call this a "topological" property of the square knot because it is a geometric property that is independent of lengths, angles, or rate of curvature (The size of the circle doesn't matter. In fact even an ellipse or a heart shape would do). The field of "algebraic topology", surely one of the greatest achievements of the twentieth century, expresses many such properties in terms of boundaries . Thus to state the result in yet another way: Take a sphere (it could be egg-shaped) and a transparent, rubbery disc with a thick blue opaque circumference (boundary) and try to manoeuvre it so that the picture inside the sphere (you can't see what the transparent part of the disc is doing) is exactly (in a topological sense) as shown in the first picture, ie. a square knot. You will not succeed. However, even after you have tried many times and gained considerable experience with any of these variations of the problem, you must still organize your experience into a mathematical proof before you can conclude with certainty that you didn't stop just one twist and tug too soon!

[ Home ] Media Reviews Chapters Sources New Research ... Order Book What readers are saying about Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill "Investigative journalism at its scholarly, perceptive, and explanatory best. Mad in America presents an insightful, courageous expose of how madness went from 'out of sight, out of mind,' to be a source of massive corporate profits. A must read for anyone with a friend or family member labeled 'mentally ill,' for psychiatric 'survivors,' mental health professionals, and those interested in the history of science and the corporate buyout of a profession." Loren Mosher, M.D. Former Chief of Schizophrenia Studies National Institute of Mental Health "Robert Whitaker has written a fascinating and provocative book a history of the way Americans understand schizophrenia and attempt to treat it, each
twist and turn of which is marked by the hubris that at last we have the answer. And as he makes clear, we still do not, nor are we anywhere near as humane in caring for the schizophrenics in our midst as we think we are."

Schizophrenia throughout the History
by Lena U Carlsson
The word schizophrenia is less than 100 years old, but the illness has probably accompanied mankind through its history. Schizophrenia can be traced in written documents to the old Pharaonic Egypt, as far back as the second millennium before Christ. Depression, dementia, as well as thought disturbances found in schizophrenia are described in detail in the Book of Hearts. This book is part of the Eber papyrus, named after the German Egyptologist Georg Ebers, who bought and published the papyrus in the 19th century. Heart and mind seem to have been synonymous in ancient Egypt. The psychical illnesses were regarded as symptoms of the heart and the uterus and originating from the blood vessels or from purulence, fecal matter, a poison or demons. In most cases the Egyptians apparently looked upon the mental diseases as physical illnesses.
Temple sleep therapy
The treatment comprised temple sleep, also called incubation. The ill persons spent the night in a holy place. Before falling asleep they were influenced by suggestions, in the hope of provoking dreams sent by the gods. The dreams were interpreted by priests and priestesses, who used them to get knowledge about the illnesses and curing of these. Incantations and prayers were uttered to bring forth the healing powers of the gods. The incantations included remedies of medical herbs and substances that were part of the therapy.

Further reading
There’s much disagreement about the psychiatric diagnosis of schizophrenia. This booklet introduces the various different theories and ideas about its diagnosis, cause and treatment. It also offers practical advice to anyone told they have this problem, and to their family and friends. What is schizophrenia? The term schizophrenia is widely used in the mental health system.
Psychiatrists classify it as a psychosis. They mean that, in their view, a person can’t distinguish their own intense thoughts, ideas, perceptions and imaginings from reality (the shared perceptions,  sets of ideas and values that other people in that culture hold to be real). Among other symptoms, a person might be hearing voices, or may believe that other people can read their mind and control their thoughts. Most psychiatrists regard such symptoms as a psychiatric disorder. They would usually prescribe major tranquillisers to treat it. Not everyone shares this view of these psychological episodes, however. An alternative idea is that they are logical or natural reactions to adverse life events, in other words an extreme form of distress. Many people prefer to look at schizophrenia ‘holistically’. They stress the need to think about individual experience, and the importance of understanding what the experiences mean to the individual.

169. UCLA Center For Research On Treatment & Rehabilitation Of Psychosis
Provides research services and consultation to investigators pursuing studies of severe mental illnesses, including schizophrenia.
The Center has operated continuously since 1977 with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health. The Center's faculty are a cohesive, multidisciplinary team who have worked together for more than two decades on the problem and unanswered questions posed by schizophrenia understanding its root causes and the determinants of its subsequent course and outcome, developing and evaluating improved methods of treatment and rehabilitation. The IRC, now entering its 23 rd year, is made up of core research Units that provide infrastructure support to a large number of extramurally funded research projects, generate new interdisciplinary research on interventions for psychosis, develop new interventions, assessments and research tools, and provide assistance and consultation to a national and international network of colleagues. New research initiatives are stimulated by an IRC program of seed money support for pilot studies, and by ongoing multidisciplinary Theme Teams, small working groups organized around significant research topics. The primary mission of our Intervention Research Center is to contribute to the goals of recovery from and prevention of psychosis and other disabling mental disorders. Even though the underlying etiology of serious mental disorders is not known, we can set ourselves the task of learning more about the interventions, risk and protective factors, and markers of vulnerability to schizophrenia and related disorders that will gradually make a difference in recovery from these disorders and eventually make prevention possible.
