    He's just describing the basics of schizophrenia. Positive and negative symptoms. Flattened affect is another one of the negative symptoms. Apparently when people fake, they usually just fake the positive symptoms (hallucinations and delusions) and forget about the negative symptoms (loss of motivation, poverty of speech, flattened affect etc).

    Article from 04/06/2012
    "Psychologist Gilles Chamberland told Radio Canada Magnotta exudes "narcissistic, anti-social" behaviour, having described himself as being "incredibly beautiful"."

    You can listen to his radio interview online but it's in French.

    This is the kind of thing the jury needs to hear, instead of the defense psychiatrists who called it psychosis.

    Interpersonal relationships suffer, as do ambition, hygiene, vocabulary, Chamberland says #Magnotta

    I'm still at a loss as to how LM was able to avoid any attempt at LE interrogation and to refuse any assessments by a prosecution psychiatrist. I'm stunned at the special treatment he received thanks to the demands of Dr. Barth and some kind of...what would you call it? Fear? On behalf of LE? Or who? Why did they send a military plane and a bunch of LE to pick LM up? Why the special treatment? Did they really think he was some kind of crazed Hannibal Lector?

    Like I said, I didn't really follow the hunt or the capture but watching this trial unfold it all seems rather silly and over the top. Nothing scary at all about LM. He's just pathetic and didn't require any of that special treatment. But I'll bet he loved every minute of it and manipulated the situation in his favour. LE made a lot of mistakes with this guy. Lets hope the jury doesn't do the same. Nothing special about him at all. He's a manipulator and now a murderer. Time to stop coddling this guy and let him finally pay the consequences for his actions.

    MOO

    Mr. Magnotta’s “moments of disorganization” in his speech and thought “means he went off on a tangent. That’s not a symptom of schizophrenia,” he said bluntly.
    He told Mr. Leclair he remembered the interview “vividly” because, such a short time later, the story of Mr. Lin’s slaying was all over the news. But at no time, he said, did Mr. Magnotta have the disorganized speech that is typical of schizophrenics.
    Dr. Paris tentatively diagnosed him as suffering from borderline personality disorder, which is characterized by an acute fear of abandonment and unstable relationships, and intended to see Mr. Magnotta again for a further assessment. The plan was that he would be called that summer and given a follow-up appointment at the personality disorders section, and by that time, Dr. Paris said, he would have asked him to release his medical records.

    As Dr. Chamberland put it once, Mr. Magnotta “said a lot of things to a lot of psychiatrists. … You could give an entire course in psychiatry [through] this case.” It had everything, he said – diagnoses that ranged from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder, anxiety issues, panic attacks, personality disorders, the taking of drugs and, oh yes, “the possibility of malingering.”

    Dr. Chamberland will continue his evidence Wednesday, the last anticipated witness of the trial.

    I think it's because of politics. The Germans didn't want to anger the Canadians by letting LM kill himself in custody or something like that. Everyone was just trying to cover their backs IMO. Plus there was such a lot of press attention, if anything had happened there would have been big trouble. Plus LM was probably doped up on psychiatric meds when he was extradited, and maybe the German authorities wanted someone there just in case of an adverse drug reaction. And they wouldn't t want LM kicking up a fuss afterwards and claiming his human rights had been abused.

    OK, we’re back in #Magnotta. Crown’s expert psychiatrist is explaining schizophrenia according to DSM, psychi Bible

    salimah shivji @salimah_shivji · 3m 3 minutes ago
    #Magnotta jury back. Chamberland goes through mental health guidebook, and criteria necessary for diagnosis of schizophrenia.

    For the diagnosis of schizophrenia, we must be sure the smptoms are not attributable to the consumption of drugs

    salimah shivji @salimah_shivji · 1m 1 minute ago
    Chamberland calls attention to criteria/symptoms needed to diagnose schizophrenia. He says doctors have to eliminate drug use as factor.

    christianedesjardins ‏@chridesjardins
    The psychiatrist Chamberland think that the behavior is due to #Magnotta taking substances , more than schizophrenia.
    Le psychiatre Chamberland pense que le comportement de #Magnotta est attribuable à prise de substances, plus que par schizophrénie.

    Stephane Giroux ‏@SGirouxCTV 2m2 minutes ago
    Chamberland describes the symptoms of schizophrenia to the jury.

    Isabelle Richer ‏@IsabelleRicher
    according to "the literature" one must have at least two of 6 symptoms to be diagnosed with schizophrenia
    Selon la "littérature" il faut présenter au moins 2 des 6 symptômes répertoriés pour un diagnostic de schizophrénie #Magnotta

    Isabelle Richer ‏@IsabelleRicher 2m2 minutes ago
    Dr Chamberland contends that Magnotta does not meet the criteria

    Stephane Giroux ‏@SGirouxCTV 3m3 minutes ago
    #Magnotta's symptoms could be provoked by drug use, rather than schizophrenia, Chamberland explains

    suemontgomery @MontgomerySue · 5m 5 minutes ago
    Patients will respond to questions but in a way that makes sense to their own little world, he says. Ask what they ate, respond 48. no sense

    suemontgomery ‏@MontgomerySue 2m2 minutes ago
    Patients don’t get a lot of pleasure out of doing things or the memory of having done things, Chamberland says #Magnotta

    Stephane Giroux ‏@SGirouxCTV 28s28 seconds ago
    A minority of people can recover from schizophrenia. Majority will be permanently affected #Magnotta

    François Messier ‏@MessierSRC
    Chamberland explains changes in schizophrenia . Most patients will stay with "debilitating symptoms" #Magnotta
    Chamberland explique l'évolution de la schizophrénie. Plupart des malades vont rester avec des "symptômes handicapants" #Magnotta

    salimah shivji @salimah_shivji · 3m 3 minutes ago
    On disorganized speech, Chamberland says anxiety can cause this but for schizophrenia diagnosis, has to be severe.Virtually incomprehensible

    christianedesjardins ‏@chridesjardins 54s54 seconds ago
    Chamberland spoke to the father of Magnotta, whose schizophrenia is controlled with medication. But he is anxious anyway.
    Le Dr Chamberland parle du père de #Magnotta, dont la schizophrénie est contrôlée par médicaments. Mais il est anxieux quand même.

    Right, here's what the court have been arguing about this morning - from my timeline thread:

    August 21st 2007 - LM sees his psychiatrist Dr. Sooriabalan. LM says he is not sleeping. Says people are spreading rumours that he is dating Karla Homolka. The Dr. writes that LM is no longer receiving any disability allowance. Adjusts his dosage of medications. Note: After his arrest, LM eventually admitted that he started the rumours about Homolka himself.

    September 2007 - LM is filmed by the Toronto Sun denying rumours that he is dating Karla Homolka.
    View the video here:
    Luka Magnotta gives interview about Karla Homolka Rumours

    September 21st 2007 - files a police report saying he was being harassed. Said he was a gay sex worker who advertised in several magazines and online sites, and that he recieved a death threat. The police wrote “He said he was the victim of a recent newspaper article that mentioned he had a liaison with Karla Homolka. He said he’d received several emails since that story was published asking him how to contact her.”

    October 18th 2007 - LM tells his psychiatrist that he has been making porn movies. Magnotta also told Sooriabalan, “Everyone is talking about me … I am being investigated.” He showed the doctor a newspaper clipping from the Toronto Sun - the story is LM saying that the rumours that he is dating Homolka are not true.
    The doctor wants to hospitalise LM but he refuses.
    “Patient doesn’t think it is his own delusional thought … doesn’t want to be admitted,” Sooriabalan wrote.

    February 2008 - LM is filmed auditioning for "Plastic Makes Perfect", hoping to win further hair transplants.
    Watch the video here - this is the video that LM's lawyer is trying to prevent the jury from seeing:

    He is slightly awkward, but there is nothing "wrong" with the way he is speaking. He comes off as incredibly vain, but otherwise "normal".
