AbstractPrevious task-fMRI studies have reported the abnormal brain activations in major depressive disorders (MDD) with suicidal behavior. However, there is no consensus of opinion on task-fMRI imaging findings of the suicidal brain. We performed a meta-analysis to integrate the results of reported studies to find the consistent task-related alteration pattern of brain activations in MDD patients with suicidal behavior, aiming to investigate brain functional alterations in association with a vulnerability to suicidal behavior. Using the SDM (Seed-based d Mapping) method, we conducted a meta-analysis of the task-fMRI studi...

(Natural News) Over 1,000 scientists have now joined the growing movement to challenge prevailing evolutionary theory. Under present scientific dictatorship, theories like Darwinism go virtually undisputed; challenging such a widely accepted belief is almost certainly career suicide. But as the “dissent from Darwin” movement shows, even the most “established” of theories should still be subject...

Anxiety and depression are associated with increased pain responses in chronic pain states. The extent to which anxiety drives chronic pain, or vice versa, remains an important question that has implications for analgesic treatment strategies. Here, the effect of existing anxiety on future osteoarthritis (OA) pain was investigated, and potential mechanisms were studied in an animal model. Pressure pain detection thresholds, anxiety, and depression were assessed in people with (n = 130) or without (n = 100) painful knee OA. Separately, knee pain and anxiety scores were also measured twice over 12 months in 4730 individuals ...
