The transmissible subacute spongiform encephalopathies, or prion diseases, have a similar noninflammatory spongiform pathology and are caused by a similar transmissible agent -- an abnormal (“scrapie-like”) protease-resistant conformation of the prion protein (PrP), which is designated PrPSc. Sporadic human prion diseases include Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and fatal sporadic insomnia. Prion diseases acquired by infection include kuru, variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, and iatrogenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Familial human prion diseases include familial Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker syndrome, and fatal familial insomnia.

Research on theory of mind has opened new windows into understanding the neuropathological bases of psychiatric and neurologic disorders in which social cognitive and theory of mind skills may be specifically impaired.
