Technology: Modern Help for the Aging Mind
McLean Hospital Guest Blogger Ipsit Vahia, MD Digital technology isn't just a domain for younger generations. It also has amazing potential for activating the mind and improving the quality of life in older adults. How do older adults use technology? A common misconception is that older adults are technophobic. One reason behind this thinking may be older people's relative lack of exposure to technology. Whereas technology is a compulsory part of life for most school-age children and working adults, using technology is largely voluntary for older adults. Another reason may be an unclear understanding about how older ad...

In the study, the researchers evaluated three key factors in adults across their life spans: their physical health, cognitive health and mental health.

In Klinefelter Syndrome Patients, What are the Common Behavioral Problems?
Discussion Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is a common genetic abnormaly with a prevalence of 1 in ~650 male births. It was first described in 1942 by Dr. Harry Klinefelter. It is associated with at least one extra X chromosome with the most common karyotype (~80% of patients) being 47 XXY. Other karyotypes are seen along with mosaicism. It is believed that although it is very prevalent, only about 25-33% of people with KS are identified. About 10% are identified before puberty with the rest usually identified because of hypogonadism and tall stature especially in teenage years or due to infertility in adulthood. KS is diagnosed...

Book Review: The Conscious Parent ’ s Guide to ADHD
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” ~ Albert Einstein For some, the symptoms are more subtle — it is the child who sits gazing out the window, her mind far from the classroom where her classmates are hard at work. For others, the symptoms are more blatant — a child who cannot sit still, bouncing up from his chair, calling out in class, poking his neighbor. At home, chores are left undone and often not started, homework is a battle, and the latest videogame is like a black-hole sucking in all of the child’s at...

Book Review: The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety
When you experience anxiety, worry, or fear, have you ever thought about embracing it rather than running away from it? In The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety, John P. Forsyth and Georg H. Eifert present a whole new way of thinking about anxiety that is quite different from traditional treatment methods. What’s interesting is that they do not aim to teach the reader ways to control anxiety. Instead they try to go to the root of the problem and get beyond simply treating the symptoms. They do make a very good point when they say that, ”thinking and feeling well does not automatically translate in...
