Psychology Around the Net: June 15, 2019

This week’s Psychology Around the Net covers ways you can be “good” at therapy (no joke), highlights an 11-year-old Montreal boy who created a video game to help kids understand mental health, how focusing on a few key habits can help keep you grounded when life gets hectic, recognizing postpartum depression in fathers, and more. Get to learning! Therapists Share 7 Ways You Can Be “Good” at Getting Therapy: No, this definitely is not about winning at therapy. You won’t find tips on how to make your therapist like you or trick your therapist into thinking you’re not as sad as you actually are or that you’re “getting better.” Instead, this is about how you can get the most out of therapy. Several therapists weigh in on how you can better understand your role and your therapist’s role, how you can best set yourself up for success, why it’s important to make therapy a priority, and more. When Anxiety and Panic Come to Work: Ralph Kellogg of the Forbes Human Resources Council and adjunct professor at Bellevue University, discusses anxiety and panic attacks in the workplace, how they were accepted when he first entered the workforce versus how they’re accepted in today’s job setting, and what leaders in the workplace can do when when an employee discusses experience with panic and anxiety.

Authors: Zhou J, Zhang W, Liu W, Sheng J, Li M, Chen X, Dong R Abstract Ten healthy adult Huang-huai white goats were selected and sacrificed by jugular vein bleeding after anesthesia to observe the distribution characteristics of the histological structure of the intestinal mucosa, goblet cells, IgA, and CD 3+ lymphocytes. Three sections of the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum were immediately collected and fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 72 h to prepare tissue sections. After HE, PAS, and immunohistochemical staining was performed, the distribution characteristics of goblet cells, IgA-positive cells, and C...

In conclusion, both painless ischemia and painful ischemia are associated with a gradual, significant increase in NT-proBNP/ULN in comparison to the double-negative hsTnI/AP subgroup. In contrast, NT-proBNP is significantly higher in only the subgroup with painful ischemia. PMID: 31320942 [PubMed - in process]

This study looked at the adrenal gland, which produces stress hormones, to see if they were different in deceased persons who had suffered from a severe mental illness. We found that the part of the adrenal gland that produces stress hormones is larger in deceased patients who suffered from schizophrenia, but not other types of psychiatric illnesses, compared to deceased persons with no history of psychiatric illness.

Authors: Tseilikman V, Dremencov E, Tseilikman O, Pavlovicova M, Lacinova L, Jezova D Abstract Glucocorticoid signaling is fundamental in healthy stress coping and in the pathophysiology of stress-related diseases, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Glucocorticoids are metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP) as well as 11-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1) and 2 (11βHSD2). Acute stress-induced increase in glucocorticoid concentrations stimulates the expression of several CYP sub-types. CYP is primarily responsible for glucocorticoid metabolism and its increased activity can resu...

Authors: Mamun MA, Hossain MS, Siddique AB, Sikder MT, Kuss DJ, Griffiths MD Abstract Problematic Internet Use (PIU) has become a concern for public mental health across the globe. However, there are few studies assessing PIU in Bangladesh. The present cross-sectional study estimated the prevalence rate of PIU and its associated risk factors among 405 university students in Bangladesh between June and July 2018. The measures included sociodemographic questions, internet and health-related variables, the Internet Addiction Test (IAT) and the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS-21). The prevalence of PIU was 3...

Authors: Liu D, Hu XY, Xia HJ, Wang LJ, Shi P, Chen XP, Zhou QX Abstract A number of studies have linked abnormalities in the function of the serotonergic and noradrenergic systems to the pathophysiology of depression. It has been reported that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors promote the expression of tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH), which is involved in the synthesis of serotonin. However, limited evidence of TPH alteration has been found in selective serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), and more key enzymes need to be investigated. The aim of the present study was to determine whether ven...
