Medical Evaluation Board Involvement, Non-Credible Cognitive Testing, and Emotional Response Bias in Concussed Service Members.
Conclusion: Study results are broadly consistent with the prior published studies that documented low to moderately high base rates of noncredible task engagement during neuropsychological evaluations in military and veteran settings. Results are in contrast to prior studies that have suggested involvement in MEB is associated with increased likelihood of poor PVT performances. This is the first to show that MEB involvement did not enhance/strengthen the association between PVT performances and evidence of SVTs. Consistent with prior studies, these results do highlight that the same SMs who fail PVTs also tend to be the ones who go on to endorse a myriad of psychiatric symptoms and proclivities. Implications of variable or poor task engagement during routine clinical and MEB neuropsychological evaluation in military settings on treatment and disposition planning cannot be overstated.

Authors: Yang T, Wang X, Liu L, Chen H, Wang N Abstract BACKGROUND Depression is the 5th most prevalent disorder adversely affecting the health of humans worldwide. The present study evaluated the antidepressant effect of ginkgolide-platinum(II) complex in vivo in a mice model of CMS-induced depression. MATERIAL AND METHODS Depression was induced in mice by social isolation followed by chronic mild stress. After stress, the mice were assigned randomly to a model group, a 3 mg/kg group, a 6 mg/kg group, and a 12 mg/kg group. The mice in the 3 treatment groups were intraperitoneally injected with a single dose of 3.0...

The hidden links between mental disorders (Nature): In 2018, psychiatrist Oleguer Plana-Ripoll was wrestling with a puzzling fact about mental disorders. He knew that many individuals have multiple conditions — anxiety and depression, say, or schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He wanted to know how common it was to have more than one diagnosis, so he got his hands on a database containing the medical details of around 5.9 million Danish citizens. He was taken aback by what he found. Every single mental disorder predisposed the patient to every other mental disorder — no matter how distinct the symptoms. &ldquo...
