The hidden links between mental disorders (Nature): In 2018, psychiatrist Oleguer Plana-Ripoll was wrestling with a puzzling fact about mental disorders. He knew that many individuals have multiple conditions — anxiety and depression, say, or schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He wanted to know how common it was to have more than one diagnosis, so he got his hands on a database containing the medical details of around 5.9 million Danish citizens. He was taken aback by what he found. Every single mental disorder predisposed the patient to every other mental disorder — no matter how distinct the symptoms. &ldquo...

AbstractBasal forebrain (BF) cholinergic system is important for attention and modulates sensory processing. We focused on the hindpaw representation in rat primary somatosensory cortex (S1), which receives inputs related to mechanoreceptors identical to those in human glabrous skin. Spike data were recorded from S1 tactile neurons (n = 87) with (ON condition: 0.5-ms bipolar current pulses at 100 Hz; amplitude 50 μA, duration 0.5 s at each trial) and without (OFF condition) electrical stimulation of BF in anesthetized rats. We expected that prior activation of BF would induce changes in the ...

  At the thought of losing a job or missing a mortgage payment, Gabe is an anxious discombobulated mess, while Lisa is cool as a cucumber. In today’s Not Crazy podcast, Gabe and Lisa ponder: Why do people have such vastly different ways of reacting to the world? They also discuss — with the special flare that only a divorced couple has — the good old days when Gabe would have full-blown panic attacks and Lisa had to get them through it.
