These results could be useful in developing more efficient interventions for GD patients. PMID: 31100610 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

_____ Wow. Fascinating three days last week. Some of our favorite moments and take-aways… 1. Dr. Tom Insel provided a spectacular overview of the digital revolution in brain health and mental health. While we have historically failed to bend the curve as well as in other areas of health, since “you can’t manage what you can’t measure”, new digital and neurological monitoring technologies are finally allowing us to remedy that fundamental issue, identify problems early and intervene early. Multiple Speakers during the Summit like Dr. Srijan Sen, Jan Samzelius and Louis Gagnon built upon Insel&...

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an effective intervention for improving depressive symptoms, but the neural mechanisms associated with treatment response are unclear. Mindfulness strategies promoted in MBCT involve psychological processes supported by the Default Mode Network (DMN) such as present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance. Furthermore, DMN hyperconnectivity has been associated with both global depressive symptoms and with anhedonia specifically. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has not yet been reported to assess changes in DMN connectivity following MBCT in a clinically sign...
