White Matter Microstructure in Pediatric Bipolar Disorder and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder

Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) codifies severe, chronic irritability. Youth with bipolar disorder (BD) also present with irritability, but with an episodic course. To date, it is not clear whether aberrant white matter microstructure – a well-replicated finding in BD – can be observed in DMDD and relates to symptoms of irritability.

Gambling disorder is a pathologic condition, resulting from the interaction of multiple risk factors. Among these, dopamine neurotransmission is known for playing a significant role, as seen, for example, in patients using dopamine replacement therapy prescribed for Parkinson disease, in which gambling is considered to be iatrogenic. Considering this, together with the general mechanism of action of antipsychotic drugs, growing attention has recently been dedicated to Aripiprazole and to its partial dopaminergic agonism (reducing D2-receptor hyperactivation in the mesolimbic pathway and improving D2-receptor stimulation in...

It is desirable to expand the sensing capabilities of nanopipette by integrating multiple sensing methods into one nanopipette. In this work, we presented a seeded growth approach to facilely, cheaply and quickly deposit a gold layer with controllable length at the inner surface of the nanopipette tip. The deposited gold formed a wireless ring-shape gold nanoelectrode at the nan...

Authors: Theodoropoulou S, Gialouris AG Abstract Brain is an organ with the highest lipid concentration in the body. Cellular membrane lipids can affect both the positioning and the functioning of membrane proteins, thus regulating several cell actions. Changes in the lipid composition of cell membrane can modulate the microenvironment and consequently the function of its proteins, e.g. neurotransmission. Some of the first studies on the subject have shown a negative correlation between serum cholesterol levels and depression, suicidality and behavioral disorders. Several studies -but not all- have found decreased ...

Ninety-nine euthymic bipolar patients and 40 healthy controls (HC) were included. A neurocognitive assessment (17 neurocognitive measures grouped in 6 domains) was carried out at baseline. The split version of the Global Assessment of Functioning scale (GAF-F) and...

Epigenetic mechanisms have been evoked to explain the onset of psychotic symptoms in BD as well as the associated biological changes. The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the expression profiles of circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) in drug-free manic psychotic bipolar patients versu...

This work is the first demonstration of an ultra-fast wirelessly destructible non-volatile memory using a novel MgO-PVP-Gr composite material synthesized by a low cost solution processed method. Optimized synthesis conditions result in the composite based memristor device which exhibits bipola...
