Commonly available activity tracker apps and wearables as a mental health outcome indicator: A prospective observational cohort study among young adults with psychological distress

Common mental disorders including depression, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affect approximately 8% of the world population (WHO, 2017). Historically, emphasis of burden has been placed on severe, organic mental disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In parallel to these types of neurological-based, chronic mental diseases, mental conditions considered to be more common in the community, while not typically considered 'severe', are by no means 'mild' (Goldberg, 1994).

Abstract The brain endocannabinoid system has been shown to play a role in many physiological processes, including mood, learning and memory. It is also involved in the pathogenesis of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, as well as neurodegenerative disorders, although the exact mechanisms by which cannabinoid receptors interfere in these disorders are not well established. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of cannabinoid ligands HU‑210 (CB1 receptor agonist) and SR 141716A (CB1 receptor antagonist) on learning and memory processes of rats with depressive - like state, induced by bilatera...

This study aims to evaluate potential anxiolytic effects of aerobic exercise in streptozotocin (STZ)‑induced diabetes. Male Wistar albino rats (n=40) were randomly divided into four groups of control, exercise, diabetes, and diabetes + exercise. Diabetes was induced with a single i.p. injection of STZ. The incremental load test was applied to exercise groups to determine maximal exercise capacity. Rats exercised on a treadmill at 70% of their maximal capacity for 45 min, five days per week for 12 weeks. On the day after the last exercise session the open field test and elevated plus maze test were carried out. Diabetes c...

Abstract Anxiety is a complex psychological state which happens after stressful life experiences. Many factors such as daily life events, neurotransmitter systems, and different brain areas could influence anxiety behavior in humans and animals. For example, opioids and androgens decrease anxiety behavior both in humans and animals. Furthermore, removing the testes (gonadectomy) causes higher levels of anxiety‑like behaviors, in which the administration of testosterone and opioid antagonist can reverse some of these behaviors. We review the effects of morphine and androgens on the modulation of anxiety behavior ...
