Published Ketamine's promise for severe depression grows, but major questions remain (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Using an old anesthesia drug to pull people out of the depths of severe depression has gone from fringe idea to widespread use in just a few years. But major questions remain about who ketamine can help, why some people get relief while others don't, and the costs and benefits of different ways of delivering the drug. New findings just came out from a study that seeks to answer some of those questions.
Published Researchers make progress toward developing blood tests for psychiatric and neurological disorders (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers used genetic material from human blood and lab-grown brain cells say they have made progress in developing a blood test to identify disease-associated changes in the brain specifically linked to postpartum depression and other psychiatric and neurological disorders.
Published Stress influences brain and psyche via immune system (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Chronic stress affects the immune system and the brain. Researchers now show that a particular enzyme found in cells of the immune system enters the brain under stress. In mice, it causes them to withdraw and avoid social contact. This newly discovered connection between body and mind in stress-related mental illnesses could lead to new treatments for depression.
Published Are body temperature and depression linked? Science says, yes (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
People with depression have higher body temperatures, suggesting there could be a mental health benefit to lowering the temperatures of those with the disorder.
Published Bullied teens' brains show chemical change associated with psychosis (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have found that adolescents being bullied by their peers are at greater risk of the early stages of psychotic episodes and in turn experience lower levels of a key neurotransmitter in a part of the brain involved in regulating emotions. The finding suggests that this neurotransmitter may be a potential target for pharmaceutical interventions aimed at reducing the risk of psychotic disorders.
Published Psychological care delivered over the phone is an effective way to combat loneliness and depression, according to a major new study (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The results of the study, a major clinical trial carried out during the Covid pandemic, showed rapid and enduring improvements in mental health and quality of life when older people received weekly phone calls over eight weeks from a specially trained coach who encouraged them to maintain their social connections and to remain active.
Published Potential link between high maternal cortisol, unpredicted birth complications (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A snippet of hair can reveal a pregnant person's stress level and may one day help warn of unexpected birth problems, a study indicates. Researchers measured the stress hormone cortisol in hair samples of 53 women in their third trimester. Of that group, 13 women who had elevated cortisol levels later experienced unpredicted birth complications, such as an early birth or hemorrhaging. While more research is needed with larger groups, this preliminary finding could eventually lead to a non-invasive way to identify those at risk for such complications.
Published Researchers find early symptoms of psychosis spectrum disorder in youth higher than expected (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study has found evidence that Psychosis Spectrum Symptoms (PSS) are often present in youth accessing mental health services.
Published Provides new explanation for why placenta may not properly separate at birth, putting mother and newborn at risk (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study may change the way clinicians and scientists understand, diagnose and treat placenta accreta spectrum disorder, a serious condition in which the placenta fails to separate from the uterus at birth, jeopardizing the life and health of both mother and baby.
Published Mood interventions may reduce inflammation in Crohn's and Colitis (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research reveals that interventions which improve mood can reduce levels of inflammation in people with inflammatory bowel disease by 18 per cent, compared to having no mood intervention.
Published Relationships with caring adults provide a buffer against depression, anxiety, regardless of adverse childhood experiences (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study sought to identify factors that would bolster resilience for marginalized and minoritized youth, using data from the Boricua Youth Study, a longitudinal study following three generations of families over 20 years in both Puerto Rico and the South Bronx, New York.
Published Therapy versus medication: Comparing treatments for depression in heart disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research shows that behavioral activation therapy is as effective as antidepressant medications in treating symptoms of depression in patients with heart failure.
Published Candida evolution disclosed: New insights into fungal infections (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Identification of genes under recent selection provides insights into the molecular mechanisms of human-related adaptation in Candida pathogens. The study reveals both known and novel genetic variants associated with drug resistance, offering potential targets for improved antifungal therapies.
Published Psychotherapy effective in treating post-traumatic stress disorder following multiple traumatic events, meta-study finds (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for adults with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following exposure to multiple traumatic events. This is shown by a meta-study by an international research team.
Published Stress, via inflammation, is linked to metabolic syndrome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study has found that stress, through its propensity to drive up inflammation in the body, is linked to metabolic syndrome -- leading researchers to suggest that cheap and relatively easy stress-management techniques may be one way to help improve biological health outcomes.
Published Feeling depressed linked to short-term increase in bodyweight (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Increases in symptoms of depression are associated with a subsequent increase in bodyweight when measured one month later, new research has found. The study found that the increase was greatest among people with overweight or obesity, but found no link between generally having greater symptoms of depression and higher bodyweight.
