NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF SUICIDAL BEHAVIOR

Abstract


There were considered various neuropsychological factors of suicidal behavior on the basis of literary and our own experimental data. Persons with suicidal behavior have essential disorders of cerebral functional asymmetry occupying all levels - metabolic, structural and functional. Changes in laterization profiles during suicidal behavior refer to the levels of motor, sensor and cognitive asymmetry. Mental patients with suicidal behavior have more likely their own neuropsychic patterns, different from ones of mental patients without suicidal behavior. Persons with suicidal behavior and psychic pathology and those without it have similar neuropsychic differences.
