This idea correlated with the known clinical phar- The cause of TD in antipsychotic drug–treated patients macology of TD, namely, that GABA agonist treatment can is, by definition, long-term drug treatment. Thus, putative improve drug-induced dyskinesias (65). Chapter 126: Tardive Dyskinesia 1835 Rodent Models transmission in nonhuman primate basal ganglia directly affected the output nuclei, and from there, the thalamic and Results from many laboratories suggested that rats treated frontal regions associated with the segregated motor circuit. In comparison, the newer antipsychotics, often called vacuous chewing movements (13,16,18,23,27,30, including clozapine, olanzapine, sertindole, and low-dose 56,61). The phenomenology of CMs resembles TD, in that risperidone, failed to induce the rat 'syndrome' of CMs movements have a gradual onset (61), partial penetrance (21,39). Can these preparations contribute to knowledge (34), and a delayed offset, and they are sensitive to stress of TD pathophysiology? However, the movements in rats remain limited to mation to the mechanism of antipsychotic drug action? The Comparison of several different animal treatment groups pharmacology of CMs resembles that of TD: CMs are sup- has been useful in addressing these questions: (a) haloperi- pressed by antipsychotics, but not by anticholinergics (52); dol-treated rats, with versus without rat CMs and (b) halo- they are reduced by GABAmimetics (20), and they are at- peridol-treated rats versus newer antipsychotic drug–treated tenuated with benzodiazepines. Antipsychotic drugs block advance the onset and severity of the rat CMs (24).

At the same time, activity in the direct striatonigral the two are similar enough for the use of this model as a pathway appears also to be altered possibly by the haloperi- screen for new antipsychotic drugs to rule out TD potential. In the reported that although all traditional antipsychotics are as- SNR, a primary basal ganglia output nuclei in the rat, ab- sociated with CMs (70,71), clozapine is not (19,27). Subse- quently, the other 'new' antipsychotics have been tested and have generated results consistent with clinical data, demonstrating low TD potential for the second-generation antipsychotics (29,39). Neither olanzapine nor sertindole produce the CM syndrome at drug doses that produce human therapeutic plasma levels in the animals (21); risperi- done at low doses is not associated with CMs, whereas high doses produce haloperidol-like CMs (Gao, unpublished ob- servations).
Intrauterine alcohol exposure has been associated with social skills deficits (Rasmussen et al buy rogaine 2 60 ml prostate kidney stones, 2010). Socio-economic disadvantage may make family life more difficult and impact on the adjustment of children. Schooling calls for separation from mother (usually) and may trigger/reveal separation anxiety. The overactive or poorly socialized child may be punished or ostracized. Child abuse (physical, emotional and sexual) is not infrequent, and can have long-term deleterious effects on mental health. Mental illness or criminality of parents may lead to emotional neglect or periods of parental absence. While divorce is common and frequently leads to emotional trauma for the child, the experience of parental divorce is childhood is not an indicator of adult psychiatric or somatic disorder (Linberg & Wadsby, 2010). Bullying behaviors are distinct from other forms of aggressive behaviors. They are characterized by repeated hurtful actions between peers where a power imbalance exists, and being bullied is considered a significant stressful life experience. Bullying appears to be common, and is reported by 13% of children and adolescents during a school year world wide (Craig et al, 2009). Direct bullying (physical acts) is more common among boys and indirect bullying (exclusion and ostracism) is more common among girls. Genetic factors Genetic factors have been identified in many childhood psychiatric disorders. Separation anxiety, which is known to be influenced by environmental factors (including paternal absence), has significantly heritable components in large twin studies (Eley et al, 2003; Cronk et al, 2004). Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is familial and highly heritable, and the disorder is being refined to identify phenotypes for use in the search for susceptibility genes (Thapar et al, 2006). Associations have been reported with variations in genes for the dopamine receptors 4 (DRD4) and 5 (DRD5) and a dopamine transporter (DAT1) (Collier et al, 2000). The most robust of these is the association between ADHD and a repeat within the coding region of DRD4 (Faraone et al, 2001). Twin studies report MZ concordance rates of 60-90% compared with DZ concordance of 5%, giving an estimated heritability of over 90% (Rutter et al, 1999). There is some evidence for a locus on chromosome 7 and another on chromosome 2, but multiple genes of small effect is the probable mechanism (Klauck, 2006).

DISCUSSION Genetic and Familial Factors Beliefs and hypotheses about risk factors for depression In a review of the eight family studies of bipolar I disorder (such as undue interpersonal dependency) emerged from that included a control group, a metaanalysis (43) showed clinicians treating individual patients and from studies done that bipolar I disorder was seven times more likely among in psychiatric settings.
