l A Abstract Nesfatin-1, a pleotropic peptide, was recently implicated in the regulation of anxiety and depression-like behavior in rats. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear so far. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the role of endogenous nesfatin-1 in the mediation of anxiety and depression-like behavior induced by corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF). Therefore, normal weight male intracerebroventricularly (icv) cannulated Sprague Dawley rats received two consecutive icv injections of anti-nesfatin-1 antibody or IgG control antibody followed by CRF or saline, before being exposed to a behaviora...

The other week, my husband and I were driving home after visiting a beloved family member who is struggling with the excruciating pain and to-the-bone weariness of cancer. As our car lugged down the highway, I thought about the ongoing cruelty of our world: the ravages of disease and war, the current pandemic, the never-ending inhumanity, inequality, and brutality, as well as the general disregard to our earth and the innocent creatures who are clinging to survive on it. (And, yes, I do realize that I’m just as guilty as the masses in spewing out pollution by the simple fact that I drive a car). I held back tears, an...

Authors: Kimura Y, Hamatani S, Matsumoto K, Shimizu E Abstract Bipolar II disorder is a recurrent mental health disorder characterized by alternating hypomanic and depressive episodes. Providing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as an adjuvant to pharmacotherapy can reduce the recurrence rate of bipolar disorder. It has not been examined whether CBT can be started during a depressive episode in patients with bipolar II disorder; however, the use of CBT during the remission period has been demonstrated to reduce recurrence. The current study is a case report involving three Japanese patients with bipolar II disorde...
