Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

In the patient described, hypochondriacal symptoms were found to consist mainly of gastrointestinal disturbances as well as generalized aches and pains. There were erratic and difficult eating habits and no sexual life. When eventually confronted with his solitude and with having to face reality, he developed claustrophobia. Fantasies centered primarily on having sexual relations with cadavers. The necrophilic fantasy also related to going to church and seeing religious images from behind and penetrating them anally. Wooden statues were equated with cadavers by virtue of their immobility. Taking care of people, giving them money, etc. was equated with communicating life to them. During the time his fantasies were active, the patient was unable to eat meat because 'it was bleeding and from a cadaver'. Also, for a year after the death of a friend, he was unable to eat meat. Eventually this reaction-formation against eating meat was generalized to solid food and the reaction-formation against blood took the form of inability to drink red wine and finally all kinds of liquids.
