Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability burden in persons aged under 45 years (Gardner and Zafonte, 2016). Psychiatric disorders, especially anxiety and depressive disorders, commonly develop following TBI (Alway et al., 2016; Scholten et al., 2016), often co-morbidly. The presence of these disorders further increases health expenditure, carer burden, incapacity for work or study, and risk of suicide, and decreases quality of life (Alway et al., 2016; Fisher et al., 2016).

Assessed were demographic, military, religious, physical, social, behavioral, and psychological characteristics using standard measures of RI, MI symptoms, PTSD, depression, and anxiet...

Soldiers were then followed for 2 yr and classified as healthy, or acquiring a psychiatric diagnosis (adjustment disorder, anxiety disorder, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder), or being prescribed psychotropic medication without a psychiatric diagnosis.

Authors: Sabban EL, Serova LI Abstract There is a great need for effective treatment options for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is associated with resilience to traumatic stress. MC4R antagonists, such as HS014, also reduce response to stress. Both regulate stress-responsive systems - the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis (HPA) and the noradrenergic nervous system and their associated behaviors. Therefore, we examined if their intranasal delivery to brain could attenuate development of PTSD-related symptoms in single prolonged stress (SPS) rodent PTSD model. Three regimens were used: (1) prop...

“With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.” – Zig Ziglar When faced with deciding on how to act, sometimes the toughest part is figuring out how to do the right thing. Of course, how you view the right thing, what you think of as the right thing, makes all the difference. And this is often not clear. You may experience conflicting emotions, feel ambivalent about potential choices, or strongly for or against certain action — whether you are convinced that it either is or isn’t the right ...

Pending replication, this line of research has the potential to improve the identification of populations that are at risk of poor health outcomes.

METHODS: The Philadelphia Neurodevelopmental Cohort (N = 9498) is an investigation of clinical and neurobehavioral phenotypes in a diverse (56% Caucasian, 33% African American, 11% other) US youth community population (aged 8-21). Participants were ascertained through children's hospital...

Abstract Among the 90% of adolescents involved in juvenile justice who have experienced traumatic victimization, a sub-group may be at highest risk due to histories of multiple types of interpersonal and non-interpersonal trauma, termed polyvictims. Latent class analyses (LCA) have identified polyvictimized subgroups in several studies of adolescents and adults, but only one study of traumatic victimization has been conducted with justice-involved youth (Ford et al. 2013). The current investigation replicates and extends that study's findings using LCA to assess a wider range of victimization- and nonvictimization...
