Psychiatry is the study, diagnosis,treatment, and prevention of mental illness

Neuropathology is the study of disease of nervous system tissue, usually in the form of either small surgical biopsies or whole autopsy brains.

**In 1901, Dr. Alzheimer observed a patient at the Frankfurt Asylum named Auguste Deter. **The 51-year-old patient had strange behavioral symptoms, including a loss of short-term memory.**In April 1906, Mrs Deter died and Alzheimer had the patient records and the brain brought to Munich where he was working at Kraepelin's lab. **With two physicians, he used the staining techniques to identify amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. **A speech given on 3 November 1906 was the first time the pathology and the clinical symptoms of presenile dementia were presented together.

Psychiatry is bascially a shrink that could prescribe you with medicine.
