Adaptation and Reliability of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-5-Disorders - Clinician Version (SCID-5/CV) to the Turkish Language.

CONCLUSION: Similar to the past SCID versions, kappa values were found to be quite high and all were statistically significant. The Turkish version of SCID-5/ CV can be reliably used in both clinical practice and clinical studies. PMID: 31170307 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Gaps in memory and various memory types were common after ICU admission, whose prevalence waned over time. Compared with nightmares and fearful memories, gaps in memories were most strongly associated with poor mental health and quality of life. Identifying patients with gaps in memories might be an objective way of planning interventions to improve their long-term outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: Several anatomical, epidemiologic, and physiologic risk factors for clinically relevant paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity can be identified on ICU admission. These features help characterize paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity as a clinical-pathophysiologic phenotype associated with worse outcomes after traumatic brain injury.

Hello, I usually dislike these posts, but I am having a huge amount fo anxiety regarding this and want to talk more about it with people who might have some honest input. I am an American Med student interested in general surgery (but also very open to OBGYN yet general surgery comes first). I have done great in my preclinicals and then life happened: 1) I really did not do well on my step 1 (literally barely passed so keep that in mind). 2) I failed my Family med shelf. Otherwise I am... Read more

We investigated the relationships between individual and occupational demographic variables, professional quality of life (i.e., compassion satisfaction, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress), and affective distress (i.e., depression, anxiety, and stress) in a sample of 524 prelicensed counselors. Using structural equation analysis, we found statistically significant relationships between the professional quality of life and affective distress latent variables. Implications for supporting the needs of prelicensed counselors in supervision are discussed. Study limitations and suggestions for future research are offered.

I know that assisted living is in his future but I’m trying to care for him in his home for now. How do I convince him that I ​just​ want to help him​ stay safe and his being mad at me for everything I do​ is making this impossible? - SL Continue reading on Inforum for some tips that may help SL manage her dad's care better at home and even in memory care: Minding Our Elders: Caregivers Share Their Personal Storie...

This study seeks to identify the shared genes and biological pathways between MDD and insomnia based on their shared genetic variants. First, we performed a meta-analysis based on the GWAS summary statistics of MDD and insomnia obtained from Psychiatric Genomics Consortium and UK Biobank, respectively. Next, we associated shared genetic variants to genes using two gene mapping strategies: (a) positional mapping based on genomic proximity and (b) expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) mapping based on gene expression linkage across multiple tissues. As a result, a total of 719 shared genes were identified. Over half (51%...

Montag Molecular mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases are insufficiently elucidated. A detailed understanding of these mechanisms may help to further improve medical intervention. Recently, intellectual abilities, creativity, and amnesia have been associated with neuroplastin, a cell recognition glycoprotein of the immunoglobulin superfamily that participates in synapse formation and function and calcium signaling. Data from animal models suggest a role for neuroplastin in pathways affected in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. Neuroplastin loss or disruption of molecular...

Molecules, Vol. 26, Pages 5824: Exploring the Dual Characteristics of CH3OH Adsorption to Metal Atomic Structures on Si (111)-7 × 7 Surface Molecules doi: 10.3390/molecules26195824 Authors: Wenxin Li Jiawen Wang Wanyu Ding Youping Gong Huipeng Chen Dongying Ju Metal atoms were deposited on an Si (111)-7 × 7 surface, and they were adsorbed with alcohol gases (CH3OH/C2H5OH/C3H7OH). Initially, CnH2n+1OH adsorption was simply used as an intermediate layer to prevent the chemical reaction between metal and Si atoms. Through scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and a mass spectrometer, the CnH2n+1OH ...

Alberto Lucchini In Intensive Care Unit (ICU) survivors, critical illness has an impact on an individual’s long-term health status and quality of life. Adults who have recovered from intensive care management could develop muscle weakness, neurocognitive impairment, difficulties in managing activities of daily living and to returning to work, and psychological problems such as depression and anxiety. A prospective, observational study was designed. Data were collected from January to December 2018 from a structured follow-up program, at 3 time points after ICU discharge: at seven days, a visit in the general war...

et I. Boomsma In recent years, evidence has accumulated with regard to the ubiquity of pleiotropy across the genome, and shared genetic etiology is thought to play a large role in the widespread comorbidity among psychiatric disorders and risk factors. Recent methods investigate pleiotropy by estimating genetic correlation from genome-wide association summary statistics. More comprehensive estimates can be derived from the known relatedness between genetic relatives. Analysis of extended twin pedigree data allows for the estimation of genetic correlation for additive and non-additive genetic effects, as well as a share...
