Researchers investigated whether d-methylphenidate and guanfacine show promise as a combination treatment for ADHD in children.
Researchers investigated whether people with behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia and schizophrenia have similar neurobiological patterns.
A group of researchers explored whether individuals who experienced ongoing discrimination had a higher risk for depression.
Researchers investigated whether preteens who don’t get 9 hours of sleep per night are more likely to experience depression, thought problems, and other neurocognitive issues.
Researchers investigated whether high-potency cannabis may be associated with a higher risk of psychosis and cannabis use disorder compared with lower-potency products.
Researchers analyzed the associations between categorical and continuous and harmonized measures of depression and global functioning in older adults with bipolar disorder.
While several studies have examined the impact of social support on anxiety levels during the pandemic, the researchers took this 1 step further, examining living arrangements and how support from family, friends, and significant others affect mental health.
Previous studies have connected high brain iron levels with Alzheimer disease, thus researchers examined if there is an association with brain iron levels and heavy alcohol use.
Investigators searched PubMed, Cochrane Library, Medline, Embase, CNKI, Weipu, and Wanfang databases for eligible studies through March 2022.
An earlier study identified several modifiable risk factors for dementia. As the number of people living with dementia has grown, researchers decided an updated analysis was needed regarding the connection between these risk factors and dementia.
To learn more about the impact of depression therapy on anxiety symptoms, researchers conducted a randomized controlled clinical trial with teenagers to compare the results of personalized depression therapy to a program that does not match their risk factors.
To explore mortality rates, the researchers who conducted the current study compared the mortality rate in US Medicare patients diagnosed with Parkinson disease who used either Pimavanserin or atypical antipsychotics.
While traditional cardiac rehabilitation offers numerous benefits, including lower risk for complications and mood improvements, the researchers wanted to compare its results with a Tai Chi-specific protocol.
Only about 60% of patients respond well to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and medication treatments for anxiety disorders. With anxiety disorders on the rise, the need for alternatives for patients who don’t respond to first-line treatments or who have residual symptoms is imperative.
Researchers explored the neurobiology related to reward-based reinforcement learning and psychomotor retardation in patients in remission from MDD.
Researchers sought to find mechanisms of impaired impulsivity control in patients with BD responding to emotion and compare them to patients with schizophrenia.
To better identify and categorize symptoms, researchers developed a machine learning model to “redraw boundaries” within early psychosis.
The researchers conducted secondary analysis of a multi-site CET trial using 86 individuals recently diagnosed with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder.
Using a shortened Nature Relatedness Scale, the Short Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (SWEMWBS), and sociodemographic information, the researchers surveyed 386 individuals aged 18 to 65 about their feelings of connection to nature and mental well-being.
Researchers have developed a system of quantitative EEG analysis which delivers an EEG phenotype associated with depression or anxiety that is customizable to each patient.
The researchers used a depression-specific version of the Deese-Roediger-McDermott (DRM) paradigm to measure participants’ tendencies to remember certain stimuli they hadn’t heard before.
Metacognitive training and therapy address maladaptive thinking styles and help people with schizophrenic spectrum disorders become more aware of cognitive biases.
Researchers examined the effect of neuropeptides orexin-A, ghrelin, and neuropeptide Y on hypersomnia and hyperphagia. Both symptoms are more common in people with bipolar disorder.
The researchers of this study explored the impact of a blended approach (bCBT) that included both face-to-face CBT and iCBT on patients with major depressive disorder and insomnia.
To help the medical community better understand the association between long COVID and mental health, researchers conducted an observational study that included 6 countries: Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
To learn more about the biological underpinnings of peripartum depression, researchers looked at the kynurenine pathway, an enzymatic pathway highly expressed in placenta as increased pathway activity may affect serotonin levels.
The results of a genome-wide association study may help researchers develop more tailored treatments to help patients who don’t respond to conventional antipsychotic medications.
Depressive symptoms and sleep disorders, including insomnia, hypersomnia, and disrupted breathing, are considered heart disease risk factors. Other studies have linked sleep disorders and depression. This study analyzes heart disease risk in people with both sleep disorders and depression.
A population-based cohort study in the US examined the data from over 2 million Medicaid patients to ascertain if there were any differences in the incidence and timing for diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders in publicly vs privately insured children.
