AbstractGambling is a popular activity among older adults. Despite this increase in popularity little research has examined gambling among this group. This is especially true for minority older adults, like Francophones in Ontario. The purpose of this study was to better understand gambling in a sample of older Francophones from North-Eastern Ontario, the first study to do so. A sample of 181 older (over 55  years) Francophones from Northeastern Ontario (M age = 68.7, SD 7.6) was recruited. This sample was compared to a sample of older adults with English as their native language that had been previously...

CONCLUSIONS: These findings support the use of patient experiences and feedback to aide product development. In addition, post-9/11 veterans support the use of eScreening to assist health screening. However, evaluating the eScreening program in more diverse veteran groups and Veterans Affairs settings is needed to improve the generalizability of these findings to the larger veteran population.

DISCUSSION: This group, comprising the mothers of young children, is particularly interesting in view of the credit constraints experienced by younger households during the financial crisis in Ireland. Both sets of results are consistent with qualitative studies which have shown that mortgage difficulties can lead to depression, anxiety and poor mental health, and that high status groups experience shame and self-blame when they experience a financial loss. It remains to be seen if this will have a long-term effect on the mental health of either the mothers or their children. PMID: 32060231 [PubMed - in process]

Isobaric vapor–liquid equilibria measurements, for ethanol–water mixtures with 2-hydroxyethylamonium formate and 2-hydroxyethylamonium butyrate, at initial concentrations of 5%, 10% and 15% mass fraction, have been carried out at 101.3...

AbstractAccumulating evidence indicates that disruption of galanin signaling is associated with neuropsychiatric disease, but the precise functions of this neuropeptide remain largely unresolved due to lack of tools for experimentally disrupting its transmission in a cell type-specific manner. To examine the function of galanin in the noradrenergic system, we generated and crossed two novel knock-in mouse lines to create animals lacking galanin specifically in noradrenergic neurons (GalcKO –Dbh). We observed reduced levels of galanin peptide in pons, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex ofGalcKO –Dbh mice, indica...

With all the advances in modern medicine, it can be easy to wonder if there is a medication to stop drinking. Unfortunately, getting sober from alcohol isn’t as easy as simply taking medication. In addition to medication, therapy is required for the best long-term results, as well as support from loved ones and ongoing aftercare. However, there are some medications to help along in the process to stop withdrawal symptoms, block cravings, and create an aversion to alcohol. It is important to not rely only on medication to stop drinking. A commitment to behavioral therapy, holistic therapy, family involvement, self-ca...

Detoxing from Alcohol Detoxing from alcohol can look very different to many different people. The way you may feel when you detox from alcohol depends on the severity of your addiction and how long you have been addicted to alcohol for. If someone has had a few too many drinks at a celebration, chances are, they might feel hungover the next morning. They might experience nausea or a headache, but are able to feel back to normal later that day or the following day. However, for someone suffering from an alcohol addiction, the experience is much different. The body of someone suffering from alcohol addiction is chemically wi...
