Long-lasting neurobehavioral alterations in burn-injured mice resembling post-traumatic stress disorder in humans.
CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that even mild burn injury could lead to long-lasting cognitive and effective alterations in mice. These findings shed light on the interactions among neuropsychology, neurobiology, and immunology throughout the recovery period of burn injury. PMID: 31697945 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms is called psilocybin -- and a new study suggests it could safely be used as a therapeutic approach to treat depression when other drugs have failed to work.

Quantitative mapping of the magnetic susceptibility and the effective transverse relaxation rate (R2*) are suitable to assess the iron content in distinct brain regions. In this prospective, explorative study the iron accumulation in deep gray matter nuclei (DGM) in myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) and 2 (DM2) and its clinical and neuro-cognitive relevance using susceptibility and R2* mapping was examined. Twelve classical DM1, four childhood-onset DM1 (DM1c.o.), twelve DM2 patients and twenty-nine matched healthy controls underwent MRI at 3 Tesla, neurological and neuro-cognitive tests. Susceptibility, R2* and volumes were...
