Altered rich-club and frequency-dependent subnetwork organization in mild traumatic brain injury: a MEG resting-state study - Antonakakis M, Dimitriadis SI, Zervakis M, Papanicolaou AC, Zouridakis G.

Functional brain connectivity networks exhibit "small-world" characteristics and some of these networks follow a "rich-club" organization, whereby a few nodes of high connectivity (hubs) tend to connect more densely among themselves than to nodes of lower ...

CBT helps people learn tools to reframe different types of thinking, such as black-and-white thinking (I can’t do anything right) and emotional reasoning (I feel you dislike me, ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to contextualize findings from the first 25  years of PTSD genetics research, focusing on the most robust findings and interpreting results in light of principles that have emerged from modern genetics studies.Recent FindingsGenome-wide association studies (GWAS) encompassing tens of thousands of participants enabled the first molecular genetic heritability and genetic correlation estimates for PTSD in 2017. In 2018, highly promising loci for PTSD were reported, including variants in and near theCAMKV,KANSL1, andTCF4 genes.SummaryTwin studies from 25  years a...

ConclusionsRegardless of how a fracture healed, individuals at Ancaster and Vagnari generally resumed mobility after trauma whenever possible.SignificanceThis research contributes information about injury recovery and suggests that resilient behaviors and persistent mobility may have been valued or required responses to fracture in the study communities. This work advises that impairment should not be inferred based solely on the appearance of lesions.LimitationsSite, sex, and age patterns in injury recovery are not evaluated due to sample size limitations.Suggestions for further researchBiomechanical assessments of post-t...
