We explore the psychodynamic meaning of the hair pulling, both in light of the problems related to introjective and projective processes which, in the kleinian view, gives structure to the internal world and, according to Margaret Mahler, individuation-separation theory. The hypotheses on the significance of this symptom are discovered in part in light of the material...

Omega-3 fatty acids are found primarily in fish oil and certain marine algae. Because depression appears less common in nations where people eat large amounts of fish, scientists have investigated whether fish oils may prevent and/or treat depression and other mood disorders. Two omega-3 fatty acids — eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) — are thought to have the most potential to benefit people with mood disorders. How might omega-3s improve depression? Different mechanisms of action have been proposed. For example, omega-3s can easily travel through the brain cell membrane and interact w...

Dr. Ignác Semmelweis, a Hungarian medical doctor, or ‘the savior of mothers’ suggested that hand sanitizing could save new mothers from “childbed fever”. However, the reflex reaction of his colleagues was rejection. For years, he strove for the introduction of handwashing in hospitals in vain. Being ostracized from the medical community, he died in a psychiatric ward from internal bleeding. Members of the staff beat him up. He was born 200 years ago. What if he could have shared his ideas via social media or peer-reviewed research? Could the power of online communities have saved him? The tra...
