Authors: Muneer A Abstract Major psychiatric disorders are linked to early mortality and patients afflicted with these ailments demonstrate an increased risk of developing physical diseases that are characteristically seen in the elderly. Psychiatric conditions like major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia may be associated with accelerated cellular aging, indicated by shortened leukocyte telomere length (LTL), which could underlie this connection. Telomere shortening occurs with repeated cell division and is reflective of a cell's mitotic history. It is also influenced by cumulative...

Authors: Lee TY, Kim M, Kwon JS Abstract Early detection and early intervention approach targets people at-risk stages who are very close to conversion to illness, or patients who have just transited the illness stage and have not, yet, become chronic. Rigorous efforts have been put in for early detection and early intervention in psychiatry. A high-risk population is identified by clinical manifestations that, as per their severity and suffering, do not yet meet the diagnostic criteria of psychiatric disorders. There have been attempts to break through the existing phenotype-based diagnostic system using biomarker...

Authors: Lee HJ, Kim SH, Lee MS Abstract Mood disorders include all types of depression and bipolar disorder, and mood disorders are sometimes called affective disorders. We will discuss newly developing two issues in affective disorders in children and adolescents. Those are the new diagnostic challenges using neuroimaging techniques in affective disorders and the introduction of disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD). During the 1980s, mental health professionals began to recognize symptoms of mood disorders in children and adolescents, as well as adults. However, children and adolescents do not necessaril...

The BDSx (Bipolar Disorder Symptom Scale) is a brief self-report instrument designed for repeated measurement of bipolar disorder (BD) symptoms over time. Previous research indicates that the BDSx measures two depression (cognitive and somatic symptoms) and two hypo/mania factors (affrontive symptoms and elation/loss of insight). The purpose of this study was to validate BDSx responses relative to diagnoses of BD mood episodes.

This week’s Psychology Around the Net dives into why (and how much) failure helps you learn, how sociosexuality affects committed relationships like marriage, whether church positively affects mental health, and more. To Learn Best, Psychologists Say You Need to Fail 15% of the Time: “The 85% Rule” states we do our best learning when we only get it right 85% of the time; if we fail 15% of the time, we’re learning our fastest. Says Robert Wilson, Ph.D., a cognitive scientist with the University of Arizona: “These ideas that were out there in the education field—that there is this ‘...

Authors: Baldessarini RJ Abstract Suicide and suicide attempts have become more prevalent in recent years, with notable increases in the US in all age groups and geographic locations.

Factors contributing to such risk include relative social and geographic isolation and low access to sources of support or clinical care. In addition, unemployment, poverty, demoralisation and opioid abuse have been identified as imp...
