Over this past weekend, I participated in my first outreach event for Mental Health America at the NBC4 Telemundo 44 Health and Fitness Expo in Washington, D.C.  Dr. Martin Luther King said that people “fear each other because they do not know each other.  They do not know each other because they do not communicate with each other.”  Here is what I learned at the event: it is easy to communicate with people about mental health because the topic is accessible across culture, race and age. In addition, talking about mental health is especially important to those with mental illness. We had a s...

People with a history of severe infection such as hepatitis or sepsis may be more likely to develop substance-induced psychosis than people without such history, suggests areport inAJP in Advance.Previousresearch by Carsten Hjorth øj, Ph.D., M.Sc., of Copenhagen University Hospital and colleagues revealed that people with substance-induced psychosis—psychosis that occurs during intoxication and resolves after use of the substance is terminated—are more likely to develop schizophrenia compared with the general population. “However, relatively little is known about the etiology and exact pathophysiol...

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder characterized by episodes of both depressed and elevated mood. It typically begins in the late teens to early 20s. During depressive episodes, people experience low mood, loss of self-confidence, hopelessness, and impaired sleep and appetite. Manic episodes are marked by an increase in energy, euphoric or irritable and rapidly changing mood, higher self-confidence, and decreased need for sleep. People may experience a mood episode every few years, or as frequently as several times a year. Bipolar disorder can be treated with medications and psychotherapy. Certain chronotherapies — ...

Research on the feasibility of using transcranial direct current stimulation to modulate the function of the anterior cingulate cortex is limited in part due to its anatomical depth. However, high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation may be better able to reach the anterior cingulate cortex and modulate its function and behavioral outputs. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of using high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation, as compared to traditional bipolar transcranial direct current stimulation, to modulate behavioral measures of anterior cingulate cortex function. In a ...

Personalized medicine offers great potential benefits for disease management but requires continuous monitoring of drugs and drug targets. For instance, the therapeutic window for lithium therapy of bipolar disorder is very narrow, and more frequent monitoring of sodium levels could avoid toxicity. In this work, we developed and validated a...

This article outlines the biophysics of electrosurgery and tissue energy sources, including the basic concepts of both modalities. It explores the biophysics of electrodiathermy, including current density, waveforms and electrosurgical circuits. The principles of monopolar and bipolar diathermy are described with reference to the safety issues pertinent to implantable cardiac devices and other implants. Safe application of electrodiathermy in endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery is discussed, exploring potential risks such as direct and capacitance coupling.
