Authors: Roselli V, Tarsitani L, Mandarelli G, Maraone A, Magliocchetti V, Bersani FS, Biondi M, Pasquini M Abstract PURPOSE: One of the most consistent models investigating the relationship between premorbid personality and depression was described by Tellenbach. According to this model, concern with orderliness, conscientiousness, hyper/hetereonomia and intolerance of ambiguity are the core features of Typus Melancholicus (TM). Previous studies showed a relationship between unipolar depression and TM. The primary hypothesis of this study was that patients affected by unipolar depressive disorders bare more of TM-...

Neglect severity was independently associated with functional outcome in right stroke. PMID: 32488286 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Dilalla V, Chaput G, Williams T, Sultanem K Abstract The Canadian Cancer Society estimated that 220,400 new cases of cancer would be diagnosed in 2019. Of the affected patients, more than 60% will survive for 5 years or longer after their cancer diagnosis. Furthermore, nearly 40% will receive at least 1 course of radiotherapy (rt). Radiotherapy is used with both curative and palliative intent: to treat early-stage or locally advanced tumours (curative) and for symptom management in advanced disease (palliative). It can be delivered systemically (external-beam rt) or internally (brachytherapy). Although tec...

Authors: Hedegaard H, Curtin SC, Warner M Abstract Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for all ages in the United States (1). Suicide is a major contributor to premature mortality as it ranks as the second leading cause of death for ages 10-34 and the fourth leading cause for ages 35-54 (1). Despite national goals to lower the suicide rate (2), several recent reports have documented a steady increase in suicide rates in recent years (3-6). This data brief uses final mortality data from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) to update trends in suicide rates from 1999 through 2018 and to describe differe...

Authors: Gupta T, Mittal VA Abstract Emotional processing deficits (EPDs) are commonly observed among individuals diagnosed with (1) psychotic disorders (2) and depression. Given that EPDs can impact overall functioning and quality of life, the need to identify effective interventions is critical. To date, our current understanding of treatments for these impairments is limited. However, there is increasing interest in investigating the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). This neuromodulation technique releases a weak electrical current through the brain. Given research suggesting promise fo...
