The Anxiety Level of Caregivers of Neurological Patients with Dysphagia
AbstractWe aimed to investigate anxiety level of caregivers of neurological patients with dysphagia, and the relationship of patient-related factors to anxiety level of dysphagia caregivers. A total of 103 adult neurological patients with dysphagia (study group), 30 without dysphagia (control group), and their primary caregivers were included. Types of feeding, condition of dependency in eating and drinking, dysphagia duration, and history of previous dysphagia treatment were recorded for study group. In study group, the Turkish version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 (T-EAT-10) was used to determine dysphagia symptom severity. Penetration and aspiration severity was determined with the penetration –aspiration scale (PAS). The Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) that has two subscales including state anxiety (S-STAI) and trait anxiety (T-STAI) was used to determine anxiety level of caregivers. There was no difference between groups in terms of age, gender, weight, and height. Th e mean S-STAI was 42.56 ± 10.10 for the study group and 29.20 ± 6.64 for the control group (p
Fish can get depressed, just like you, and that could make them a good model organism for studying depression in people.
This study included 347 pediatric patients aged 10 to 17 with bipolar I disorder and CDRS-R scores of at least 45. The participants were randomly assigned to either lurasidone (20-80 mg daily) or placebo. At the study endpoint, CDRS-R total scores dropped 21 points in the lurasidone group compared with 15.3 points in the placebo group. Overall response rates ( ≥50% reduction from baseline to week 6 in CDRS-R total score) were 59.5% and 36.5% for the lurasidone and placebo groups, respectively.DelBello and colleagues noted the improvements seen in the current study were comparable to those seen in a clinical trial of ola...
Conclusions: Findings suggest patient experience-based value sets are not stable (ie, context such as timing matters). However, the knowledge that lower values are assigned to health states postsurgery compared with presurgery may be useful for the patient-doctor decision-making process.
Conclusion: A single oral dose of VE modulates intracortical facilitatory circuits. Our results in healthy subjects could be predictive markers of treatment response in patients and further support the use of pharmaco-TMS to investigate the neuropsychiatric effects of herbal therapies in humans.Neuropsychobiology 2017;75:46-51

There are many things in life we can’t control—everything from tiny annoyances to tragedies. We can’t control if our grandmother gets cancer and passes away. We can’t control if we get cancer. We can’t control what others think, say or do. We can’t control what others think of us. We can’t control who our loved ones hang out with. We can’t control who we work with or who’s in charge. We can’t control Mother Nature, or today’s traffic. But, of course, we can control our reactions to all the things we can’t control. I’m sure you’ve heard that...
