Blast-induced tinnitus and hyperactivity in the auditory cortex of rats - Luo H, Pace E, Zhang J.

Blast exposure can cause tinnitus and hearing impairment by damaging the auditory periphery and direct impact to the brain, which trigger neural plasticity in both auditory and non-auditory centers. However, the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of ...

(Nationwide Children's Hospital) The study found that there were more than 156,000 calls to US Poison Control Centers regarding exposures to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications among children and adolescents 19 years of age and younger from January 2000 through December 2014, averaging 200 calls each week or 29 calls per day.

Publication date: September 2018 Source:Protein Expression and Purification, Volume 149 Author(s): Shijie Li, Linlin Li, Zhuo Chen, Guangpu Xue, Longguang Jiang, Ke Zheng, Jincan Chen, Rui Li, Cai Yuan, Mingdong Huang Plasma-derived human serum albumin (pHSA) has important applications in many clinical indications, including blood loss, serious burn, or hemorrhagic shock. The limited supply and potential infectious pathogen contamination of pHSA have stimulated the development of recombinant human serum albumin (rHSA). However, rHSA often entraps endogenous or exogenous impurities, including color pigments and polysacchar...

AbstractThere is ongoing debate on the overlap between Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), particularly regarding emotion dysregulation (ED). In this paper, we present a narrative review of the available evidence on the association of these two disorders from several standpoints. First, we discuss the unique and shared diagnostic criteria for ADHD and BPD, focusing particularly on ED. We consider the methodology of ecological momentary assessment and discuss why this approach could be an alternative and more accurate way to qualitatively distinguish between ADHD and BP...

Publication date: September 2018 Source:Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, Volume 92 Author(s): Tomasz Hanć, Samuele Cortese Available meta-analyses point to a significant association between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obesity. The possible mechanisms underlying this relationship are unclear. Here, we overview the studies aimed at identifying the factors contributing to the comorbidity between ADHD and obesity, including genetic factors, fetal programming, executive dysfunctions, psychosocial stress, factors directly related to energy balance, and sleep patterns alterations. The bulk of cu...

Dear Carol: My Dad cared for Mom for seven years until she died from Alzheimer’s. Now, Dad needs a little help. He knows how hard caregiving can be, and with my working full time, he's worried that I’ll burn out or get sick if I take on his care. He has money to pay for some hired help at home which is where he wants to stay. He has a personal alarm and is safety conscious. I live with depression, though I’m treated. Still, I have kids at home so I do have limits in what I can do for Dad. When I read about caregiver burnout I worry about that happening to me. I don’t want to get so that I hate ...

Chiarenza, Stefania Villa, Lidice Galan, Pedro Valdes-Sosa, Jorge Bosch-Bayard Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is frequently associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) but no clear neurophysiological evidence exists that distinguishes the two groups. Our aim was to identify biomarkers that distinguish children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder combined subtype (ADHD_C) from children with ADHD_C + ODD, by combining the results of quantitative EEG (qEEG) and the Juni...

“Put me out of my misery!” I’ve pleaded to anyone within earshot in the throes of a grueling day, a rant from one feeling burnt out. There are days I want to pull my hair out, even the ones that aren’t gray. One night I caught myself grunting, “I hate my life,” while heading out the door at 12 a.m., after an already exhausting day in the OR. No sane person should ever say that. But the world of medicine nowadays is far from sane. After returning home for two hours of sleep, I drag myself to the office with a full patient-load, which is not bad in itself if it weren’t for that unset...

(BMJ. 2017;358:j3668) Antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are prescribed during pregnancy and are considered safe. Recent studies have raised concerns regarding the long-term neurodevelopmental effects, such as autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, of these medications on the offspring. However, gaps exist in the knowledge of antidepressant use during pregnancy and risk of psychiatric disorders in the offspring. This population-based cohort study was performed to investigate the association between in utero antidepressant exposure and overall risk of psychiatric disorders in children.
