Factor Structure of the Internet Addiction Scale and Its Associations with Psychiatric Symptoms for Korean Adolescents.

Factor Structure of the Internet Addiction Scale and Its Associations with Psychiatric Symptoms for Korean Adolescents. Community Ment Health J. 2013 Dec 18; Authors: Sung M, Shin YM, Cho SM Abstract In this paper, we explore underlying factors of Internet Addiction Scale (IAS) and examine how the dimensions of the IAS relate to psychiatric symptoms in Korean adolescents. Exploratory factor analysis with a sample of N = 1,722 consisted of 13-15 year old Korean adolescents identified three distinctive factors of IAS and they were labeled 'time management', 'withdrawal behaviors' and 'neglect work'. Then, multiple regression models were applied to assess the association between each factor and eight psychological problems, which were evaluated by Youth Self Report. The overall IAS was significantly associated with Somatic, Immature, Thought, Attention, Delinquent and Aggressive behaviors. However, three factor scores showed different association patterns and indicated multidimensional aspects of problematic Internet use. PMID: 24346224 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 21 September 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Anna G. McGrath, Lisa A. BriandAbstractStress is an important risk factor for the development of substance use disorder (SUD). Exposure to both stress and drugs abuse lead to changes in synaptic plasticity and stress-induced alterations in synaptic plasticity may contribute to later vulnerability to SUD. Recent developmental neuroscience studies have identified microglia as regulators of synaptic plasticity. As both stress and drugs of abuse lead to microglial activation, we propose this as a potential mechanism un...

Abstract Electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) are devices that contain a power source, a heating element, and a tank or cartridge containing an "e-liquid," which is a mixture of nicotine and flavoring in a glycerol-propylene glycol vehicle. Their increasing popularity among adolescents might be attributed to aggressive marketing in physical venues, social media outlets, as well as irreversible changes caused by nicotine in the developing brains of youth and young adults, predisposing them to addictive behaviors. Adolescent ENDS users were 4 times more likely to initiate cigarette smoking, and the ...

In conclusion, (±)-citalopram inhibits α3β4 and α9α10 AChRs with higher potency compared to other AChRs but by different mechanisms. (±)-Citalopram also inhibits habenular α3β4*AChRs, supporting the notion that these receptors are important endogenous targets related to their anti-addictive activities.

PSA: there’s some text missing from the headlines popping up lately that show quitting drinking improves women’s mental health. Essentially, the findings of the Canadian Medical Association Journal are that not drinking at all is actually better for your health than drinking when you’re stressed, no matter how much you want to lean into the whole a-glass-of-red-wine-a-day-is-good-for-you thing. But it’s not that simple. There’s no foolproof formula like: “If I stop drinking, then my mental health will improve” (as nice as that would be). For many of us, there’s legwork neces...
