ADHD symptoms and sex moderate the relation between protective behavioral strategies and alcohol use among treatment-mandated college students - Looby A, Cleveland CS, Zimmerman L, Hartung CM.

College students with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder are likely to engage in alcohol use and experience alcohol-related problems. Use of protective behavioral strategies is related to fewer alcohol-related consequences. However, this association ...

Discussion Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is also known as Willis-Ekbom disease. RLS is a clinical diagnosis with criteria being: 1. An urge to move the legs usually accompanied by uncomfortable and unpleasant sensations in the lower extremities (Note: sometimes other body parts can be affected) 2. The urge to move begins or worsens when sitting or lying down 3. The urge to move is partially or totally relieved by movement (Note: relief by activity may not be noticable if severely affected but must have been previously present) 4. The urge to move the legs and any accompanying unpleasant sensations during rest or in activ...

Computerized device uses (CDU; e.g., playing computer games (CompGaming), mobile phone use (minutes/week for the last three months (PhoneUse) and total usage years), hands-free/speakerphone device use). Epidemiological associations between CDUs and psychiatric disorders are frequently reported; the biological mechanisms underlying these observations remain unknown. We investigated genetic overlap and causality between CDUs and psychiatric disorders (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia (SCZ), autism spectrum disorder, major depressive disorder, alcohol dependence, bipolar disorder, anorexia nervos...

This study examines the effect of TAAR1 partial agonist RO5263397 on the MMN-like response in freely moving C57BL/6 mice. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from awake mice in the oddball paradigm before and after RO5263397 administration. The RO5263397 (but not saline) administration increased the N40 amplitude in response to deviant stimuli. That provided the MMN-like difference at the 36–44 ms interval after the injection. The pitch deviance-elicited changes before the injection and in the control paradigm were established for the P68 component. After TAAR1 agonist administration the P68 amplitude in re...

This study examined whether attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms moderate the relationship between protective behavioral strategies and alcohol use, and whether this differs by sex. Participants were 125 treatment-mandated college students (58.6% male; Mage = 19.50 years) who completed measures of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms, protective behavioral strategies, and past-2-week drinking. There was a significant 3-way interaction such that drinking was highest when protective behavioral strategy use was low and hyperactivity/impulsivity symptoms were high, but only for women. There was...

Conclusion Children with FAS but not other FASDs may be at a particular risk for hearing loss. However, listening difficulties in the absence of hearing loss-presumably related to suprathreshold processing deficits-are prevalent across the entire fetal alcohol spectrum. The nature and impact of both listening difficulties and hearing loss in FASDs warrant further investigation. PMID: 31039324 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Fun seeking on the BAS and frustration intolerance should be considered as targets in prevention and intervention programs for IA among adolescents with ADHD.IntroductionThe negative effects of internet addiction (IA) have become a concern in the past decades. IA is characterized by persistent internet use despite negative consequences, loss of control, preoccupation with internet use, increasing amounts of time spent online, and withdrawal symptoms (1). Internet gaming disorders are listed in the “Conditions for Further Study” section in the Fifth Edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Men...
