This topic is the beginning of study of the general psychopathology and its main part – the semiotic of mental diseases.

Sensations and perception are the personal mental processes; they have subjective features, which are conditioned by personal properties of the organs of senses, knowledge, and experience. Subjectivity concerns to the level of depth of reflection and understanding and not to the reality of the objective existence of the perceptible. So, due to this the reality perceives in her natural condition, but with different level of the depth and understanding of its meaning.

Attention and memory is a mental process of imprinting, preservation and reproduction of the previous experience. Disturbances of memory and attention in mental and somatic diseases manifest themselves began inability to memorize, retain and reproduce the material mastered. Most frequently disturbances of memory occur in organic psychiatric disorders. It is possible to observe reduced capacity for memorizing against a background of a disturbance of attention in cases of development of overstrain states, as well ass at the period of convalescence following somatic diseases.

The disorders of emotions are leading in the clinic of mental and somatical diseases. During acute somatical disorder the reaction of personality to the fact of the disease appears. Its depth and steadfastness may differ, it may need psychotherapeutic or medicine correction. During chronic diseases more steadfast “totality of feelings” – “the inner picture of the disease” forms (R.A.Luria). Emotional may promote appearing of psychosomatic diseases. The disorders of emotions are often at psychosis, neurosis, and the disorders of personality. Because of the wide spectrum of the disorders of the emotions doctor of any specialty should be able to expose them and to carry out psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic correction.

Identification of a mental disease like any other begins with the symptom (a sign which demonstrates a disorder of one or other function). But the symptom is a multimeaning sign and using the symptom alone it is impossible to make a diagnosis. A single symptom has a diagnostic sense only in the interaction with other symptoms or in the aggregate of syndrome (complex of symptoms). Syndrome is a number of symptoms, which are interacted by one pathogenesis. A clinical picture of the disease and its development consist of syndromes and their consecutive change.
