Risk of metabolic syndrome and its components in people with schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Abstract Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components are highly predictive of cardiovascular diseases. The primary aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to assess the prevalence of MetS and its components in people with schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder, comparing subjects with different disorders and taking into account demographic variables and psychotropic medication use. The secondary aim was to compare the MetS prevalence in persons with any of the selected disorders versus matched general population controls. The pooled MetS prevalence...

Major depressive disorder, suicidal behaviour, bipolar disorder, and generalised anxiety disorder among emerging adults with and without chronic health conditions.
CONCLUSIONS: Physical and mental comorbidity is prevalent among emerging adults and this relationship is not augmented, but may be mediated, by the level of disability or pain. Findings point to the integration and coordination of public sectors - health, education and social services - to facilitate the prevention and reduction of mental disorder among emerging adults with chronic health conditions.

[The epidemiology of ADHD in first-year university students].
CONCLUSION: Adult adhd is common among first-year university students and is associated with comorbid psychiatric symptoms and poor academic performance. It is therefore surprising that so few students actually receive treatment for their psychiatric and emotional problems. KEY WORDS adhd, comorbidity, impact, prevalence, service use, student.

Low self-recognition and awareness of past hypomanic and manic episodes in the general population
Conclusions: In routine clinical practice history-taking on a syndromal level, i.e., only inquiring whether a patient presenting with depression ever experienced a hypomanic or manic episode or received treatment for such an episode, is not sufficient to confirm or exclude a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Other efforts, such as an interview with a significant other and the use of self report questionnaires or (semi-)structured interviews may be needed to recognize previous manic symptoms in patients with depression.

Identifying mechanisms that underlie links between COMT genotype and aggression in male adolescents with ADHD
ConclusionOur findings suggest fear mechanisms as possible targets for psychological interventions to disrupt links between genetic risk and aggressive outcomes in ADHD. Our findings also reveal the potential of hypothesis‐driven approaches for identifying neuropsychological mechanisms that mediate genetic risk effects on behaviour and psychopathology.

Effects of repeated asenapine in a battery of tests for anxiety-like behaviours in mice.
CONCLUSION: The results suggest that asenapine may have anxiolytic-like properties and recommends that clinical trials examining such effects should be performed. PMID: 26357996 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Acta Neuropsychiatrica)

Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2 Positive Allosteric Modulators: Closing the Gate on Drug Abuse?
Abnormally high levels of extracellular glutamate, the principal excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, have been implicated in elevated drug seeking and taking as well as drug addiction (1). Presynaptic metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) can limit glutamate release by acting as autoreceptors on glutamatergic terminals (2). Among the eight subtypes of mGluRs, group II (mGluR2 and mGluR3) and group III (mGluR4, mGluR7, and mGluR8) are known to act as autoreceptors at excitatory synapses in the mammalian brain.

Predictors of rapid reincarceration in mentally ill young offenders.
CONCLUSIONS: Serious mental illness was a significant predictor of rapid reincarceration in young offenders. Treatment improved community survival.

Subclinical Psychiatric Symptoms and the Brain: What Can Developmental Population Neuroimaging Bring to the Table?
I was chatting once with a woman who told me, “I wish I could have just a touch of anorexia nervosa, not the whole thing, but just a touch.” Although no one has ever said to me that they wanted a “touch” of depression, psychosis, or autism, I heard a man once say that he wanted a touch of mania, “you know, so that I could really get some work done.” (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

[The Relationship Between Emotion Recognition and the Symptoms of Attention Deficit and Impulsivity in Adult Patients With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder].
CONCLUSION: The social relationship disorders observed in ADHD can be affected by emotion recognition processes. In future studies, it may be possible to investigate the effects that early psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions administered for the main symptoms of ADHD have on the impairment of emotion recognition.

Transdiagnostic versus disorder-specific and clinician-guided versus self-guided internet-delivered treatment for generalized anxiety disorder and comorbid disorders: A randomized controlled trial

Wootton, P.M. McEvoy, N. Titov Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) can be treated effectively with either disorder-specific cognitive behavior therapy (DS-CBT) or transdiagnostic CBT (TD-CBT). The relative benefits of DS-CBT and TD-CBT for GAD and the relative benefits of delivering treatment in clinician guided (CG-CBT) and self-guided (SG-CBT) formats have not been examined.

[Pregabalin Dependence: A Case Report].
Abstract Pregabalin is a new generation antiepileptic that exerts its effect by decreasing the release of such neurotransmitters as glutamate, noradrenaline, and substance P. Pregabalin can be prescribed in Turkey at 150-600 mg to treat neuropathic pain, generalized anxiety disorder, and fibromyalgia, and as concomitant therapy in adult patients with partial epilepsy. Experimental studies have shown that pregabalin could be beneficial in the treatment of benzodiazepine dependence and withdrawal, as well as for relapse prevention in patients with alcohol dependence. Nonetheless, the number of case reports on the abu...

Publication date: December 2015 Source:Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Volume 20 Author(s): Brenda Salley, Joy Gabrielli, Catherine M. Smith, Matthew Braun Given the well-documented symptom overlap between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), careful evaluation of potential differentiation and overlap is critical for accurate diagnostic decisions. Although research has considered the use of symptom checklists and parent/teacher report questionnaires for symptom differentiation, standardized observational methods, typically utilized in the context of ASD evaluation...
