Psychiatric disorders in women with fertility problems: results from a large Danish register-based cohort study
STUDY QUESTION Do women who don’t succeed in giving birth after an infertility evaluation have a higher risk of psychiatric disorders compared with women who do? SUMMARY ANSWER The results indicated that being unsuccessful in giving birth after an infertility evaluation could be an important risk factor for psychiatric disorders. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY Several studies have investigated the association between fertility treatment and psychological distress, but the results from these studies show substantial variation and lack of homogeneity that may be due to methodological limitations. STUDY DESIGN, SIZE AND DURAT...

Changing associations between partnership history and risk of accidents, violence and suicides
Conclusions Currently living without a partner and cohabitation and previous divorce increased the risk of accidents, violence and suicides. This indicates that also other mechanisms than immediate support from a partner are important in the formation of marital status differences in mortality.

Duration of unemployment and suicide in Australia over the period 1985-2006: an ecological investigation by sex and age during rising versus declining national unemployment rates
Conclusions The labour market opportunities in Australia modified the effect of duration of unemployment on suicide, and the effect was more prominent in men and older age groups. This may reflect social norms and acceptability about unemployment, as well as life-stage influences associated with transitions into and out of the labour market.

Brain involvement in Alstrom syndrome
Conclusions: Brain involvement in Alstrom syndrome is not uncommon. Early vascular-like lesions, gray and white matter atrophy, mostly involving the posterior regions, and diffuse supratentorial white matter derangement suggest a role of cilia in endothelial cell and oligodendrocyte function.

GABA-Based Evaluation of Neurologic Conditions: MR Spectroscopy [REVIEW ARTICLES]
SUMMARY: GABA serves as a major neurotransmitter of the brain and functions mainly to inhibit neural excitatory activity. Disruption of the GABAergic processes appears to occur in various neurologic and psychiatric conditions, including epilepsy, mood disorders, motor disorders such as focal dystonia and stiff-person syndrome, sleep disorders, neuroplasticity, and drug and alcohol dependence. These concentration differences may be ascertained by using MR spectroscopy to provide information on the concentration of different metabolites. This review briefly discusses advances in MR spectroscopy methods and explores the appli...

HIGHER IN VIVO SEROTONIN‐1A BINDING IN POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER: A PET STUDY WITH [11C]WAY‐100635
ConclusionsThis is the first report of higher brainstem and forebrain 5‐HT1A binding in vivo in PTSD. The finding is independent of MDD. PTSD and MDD have in common an upregulation of 5‐HT1A binding including midbrain autoreceptors that would favor less firing and serotonin release. This abnormality may represent a common biomarker of these stress‐associated brain disorders.

Orlistat with behavioral weight loss for obesity with versus without binge eating disorder: Randomized placebo-controlled trial at a community mental health center serving educationally and economically disadvantaged Latino/as.
CONCLUSIONS: In this controlled trial performed at community mental health center serving educationally- and economically-disadvantaged Spanish-speaking-only Latino/as with co-morbid psychiatric needs, we observed outcomes for the BWL plus orlistat/placebo medication that approximate or are slightly dampened relative to the literature for efficacy trials with much more restrictive obese and BED samples. In this complex patient group, adding orlistat to BWL produced greater weight-loss than adding placebo among obese patients without BED but not among those with BED. Although 50% of BED patients maintained abstinence from b...

Sleep-dependent memory consolidation in patients with sleep disorders
Summary: Sleep can improve the off-line memory consolidation of new items of declarative and non-declarative information in healthy subjects, whereas acute sleep loss, as well as sleep restriction and fragmentation, impair consolidation. This suggests that, by modifying the amount and/or architecture of sleep, chronic sleep disorders may also lead to a lower gain in off-line consolidation, which in turn may be responsible for the varying levels of impaired performance at memory tasks usually observed in sleep-disordered patients.The experimental studies conducted to date have shown specific impairments of sleep-dependent c...

Dysmetabolic features of the overweight patients receiving antipsychotic drugs: A comparison with normal weight and obese subjects.
CONCLUSIONS: Overweight (BMI=25-29.9) patients receiving antipsychotics are metabolically closer to the obese than to normal weight counterparts. The findings suggest that interventions promoting weight loss and metabolic health are required for overweight patients even in the absence of metabolic syndrome or diabetes.

Procedural justice in mental health courts: Judicial practices, participant perceptions, and outcomes related to mental health recovery.
This study attempts to shift the focal point of interest from well-established criminal justice outcomes to the experiences and perceptions of MHC participants. The authors hypothesize that the actions of MHC judges that are consistent with procedural justice theory will engender high perceptions of procedural justice among this sample of divertees with SMI. Defendant perceptions of procedural justice in 4 NYC-area MHCs were also compared to those of uninvolved observers. Results suggest that defendant perceptions are distinct from observer perceptions, which tended to be more sensitive to the differences in judges between...

Exploring the Manifestations of Anxiety in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This study explores the manifestation and measurement of anxiety symptoms in 415 children with ASDs on a 20-item, parent-rated, DSM-IV referenced anxiety scale. In both high and low-functioning children (IQ above vs. below 70), commonly endorsed items assessed restlessness, tension and sleep difficulties. Items requiring verbal expression of worry by the child were rarely endorsed. Higher anxiety was associated with functional language, IQ above 70 and higher scores on several other behavioral measures. Four underlying factors emerged: Generalized Anxiety, Separation Anxiety, Social Anxiety and Over-arousal. Our findings e...

Associations Between Language Development and Skin Conductance Responses to Faces and Eye Gaze in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Abstract Attention to social stimuli is associated with language development, and arousal is associated with the increased viewing of stimuli. We investigated whether skin conductance responses (SCRs) are associated with language development in autism spectrum disorder (ASD): a population that shows abnormalities in both attention to others and language development. A sample of 32 children with ASD (7-15 year; M = 9 year) was divided into two groups, based on language onset histories. A typically developing comparison group consisted of 18 age and IQ matched children. SCRs were taken as the participants viewed ...

Differential regulation of parvalbumin and calretinin interneurons in the prefrontal cortex during adolescence.
Abstract Determining the normal developmental trajectory of individual GABAergic components in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) during the adolescent transition period is critical because local GABAergic interneurons are thought to play an important role in the functional maturation of cognitive control that occurs in this developmental window. Based on the expression of calcium-binding proteins, three distinctive subtypes of interneurons have been identified in the PFC: parvalbumin (PV)-, calretinin (CR)-, and calbindin (CB)-positive cells. Using biochemical and histochemical measures, we found that the protein level o...

Cognitive Development and Social-Emotional Functioning in Young Foster Children: A Follow-up Study from 2 to 3 Years of Age.
Abstract Foster children (FC) are at risk of delayed development relative to their peers due to early caregiver disruptions and adverse experiences prior to placement. Descriptive analyses and linear mixed effects (LME models) were used to analyse the cognitive development and social-emotional functioning of 60 FC and 42 comparison children (CC) at 2 (T1) and 3 years (T2). Changes in group differences between T1 and T2 were examined, and significant group differences occurred on all cognitive scales, with the FC obtaining lower scores than the CC. An analysis of social-emotional functioning revealed significantly ...

Practitioner Review: The victims and juvenile perpetrators of child sexual abuse–assessment and intervention
Conclusions: Victims and perpetrators of CSA present challenges and opportunities for professional intervention. Their complex presentations mean that their needs should be met by highly trained staff. However, their youth and developmental immaturity also give an opportunity to nip problem symptoms and behaviors in the bud. The key is in the earliest possible intervention with both groups. Future research should focus on long‐term adult outcomes for both child victims and children who perpetrate CSA. Adult outcomes of treated children could identify problems and/or strengths in parenting the next generation and also ...

Psychological impact of unexpected explicit recall of events occurring during surgery performed under sedation, regional anaesthesia, and general anaesthesia: data from the Anesthesia Awareness Registry
Conclusions Patients who self-reported to the Registry unexpected explicit recall of events during sedation/RA experienced distress and persistent psychological sequelae comparable with those who had reported anaesthetic awareness during GA. Further study is warranted to determine if patients reporting distress with explicit recall after sedation/RA require psychiatric follow-up.

The most severe somatic complications of eating disorders and methods of their realimentation. Weight gain as a criterion for successful therapy - a myth. The study of 117 patients with anorexia and bulimia nervosa
Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are primary psychiatric diseases, which can be characterized by food intake problems. A common phenomenon is the focus of treatment only according to body weight, regardless of the patient's metabolic parameters. However, they are complicated by various somatic consequences which can be lethal in approx. 25–35 percent. These statistical data include all deaths of the patients with eating disorders including influence of drug abuse like psychotropic drugs, laxatives, diuretics, thyroid hormones and alcohol. The deaths are also caused by suicide which is most frequent in bulimia nervosa...

Diffusion tensor imaging study of white matter fiber tracts in adolescent attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
Abstract: A diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) study was conducted in 12 adolescents with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and 14 age- and IQ-matched healthy controls. Inter-subject comparison of fractional anisotropy (FA) of the whole brain between the groups was obtained using the tract-based spatial statistics method. Results revealed significantly lower FA in widespread white matter tracts in cases relative to controls. Also, the FA measure of identified regions was associated with cognitive performance.
