The scientific meeting “Varna
winter” was carried out for the third consequent year in Varna. The scientific
forum which took place under the auspice of the Medical University of Varna
gathered psychiatrists from the all country on 24th and 25th
January. A special guest of the event
was the disciple of the Medical University of Varna – Dr. Danko Georgiev from
the Institute for research on schizophrenia in Kanazawa, Japan.
The early diagnostics of the
mental illnesses was in the focus of the delivered presentations. The topic for
the subclinical conditions and the symptoms which are observed before the real
illness was discussed. Special attention was paid to
schizophrenia not only as subclinical symptoms, but also in terms of the presented
evidence and reasons for changes of neurons in the prefrontal cortex of
patients. Among the discussed issues was
the hyperactivity disorder which is observed in hyper active children.
The main promoters of the
event were Prof. Rinaldo Shishkov, a Vce-Rector in the MU-Varna and the
Director of the First psychiatric clinic in the University hospital “St.
Marina” and Assoc. Prof. Lachezar Hranov – head of the Psychiatric clinic “St.
