Authors: Charnsil C, Narkpongphun A, Chailangkarn K Abstract AIMS: This research examines the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and its related factors in students whose school burned down, one month and six months after the incident. METHODS: A total of 56 students from grades one through six were invited to participate in this study with permission from their parents. Subjects were screened for PTSD by using UCLA PTSD Reaction Index (DSM-5 Version) during three periods: 1, 6, and 12 months after the incident. Children diagnosed with PTSD were interviewed by a child and adolescent psychiatris...

Contributors : Alexander B Niculescu ; Helen Le-NiculescuSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensShort-memory dysfunction is a key early feature of Alzheimer Disease. Psychiatric patients may be at higher risk for memory dysfunction and subsequent Alzheimer due to the negative effects of stress and depression on the brain. We carried out longitudinal within-subject studies in male and female psychiatric patients to identify blood gene expression biomarkers that track short term memory as measured by the retention measure in the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test. These biomarkers were prioritized with a...

Innate immune responses are critical in stroke pathophysiology, and microglia are key cellular effectors in the CNS response to ischemia/reperfusion. Using a transcriptional analysis approach, we identified a robust interferon (IFN)-stimulated gene res...

Conclusions: The results of this study suggest a difference in perspective between the more optimistic view of persons with dementia and their informal caregivers and the more critical view of physiotherapy experts regarding the most important factors that influence PA participation. In addition, there was a strong focus on the individual characteristics that influence PA behavior that warrant personalized interventions to promote PA in persons with dementia.

Alan Towers wrote an instructive, poignant comment about the difficulty that he had understanding that his schizophrenic son could not be EXPECTED to “make sense”, if sense was defined by the standards that applied for Alan, or for the wider society. Because so many people who live with psychotic illness or substantial neurological impairment require that their affected loved ones operate by THEIR rules and THEIR logical constructs and world view, they often abandon their children, relatives and friends as uncorrectible and irrecoverable, as lost souls. I’ve had a conversation about this subject with a nu...

Hi everyone, I just made this account but I've been active on this forum for over 8 years. I withdrew from med during 3rd semester due to anxiety (W's for that semester but ~B average for med school overall). While in med school I saw friends fail things like Step 1, Step 2 CS, or not match and have to SOAP. In med school I had trouble sleeping occasionally. Then during my 3rd semester the trouble sleeping became severe anxiety as I kept having unwanted thoughts of not matching. I think... Help a med school dropout
