MS and cognition focus of recent studies
Three recent studies have been published focused on the cognitive side of multiple sclerosis (MS). Each study was published by researchers at Kessler Foundation (West Orange, N.J.) - studies that could eventually lead to cognitive therapies being approved for reimbursement by insurers. Many know that physically, MS can cause muscle rigidity, pain and paralysis. Lesser known are the cognitive effects -- including fatigue, trouble with memory and speech...

Could cognitive therapy treat hypochondria?
“Cognitive therapy study hope for hypochondria patients,” reports the BBC News website.  The news is based on a UK randomised controlled trial of 444 people judged to have health anxiety, more commonly known as hypochondria. Hypochondria is a mental health condition in which a person obsessively worries about their health, usually to the point where it causes great distress and affects their ability to function properly. Participants were allocated to either receive five to 10 sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or standard care. The researchers were interested to see if there was a...

Midlife stress may raise women's dementia risk
Conclusion Overall, this study suggests an association between reported stressors, distress and dementia later in life among a group of women living in Sweden. It does not provide proof that stress occurring in mid-life leads to dementia. The study has some strengths, including that the sample was reportedly representative of the population, and that women were followed for a long period of time (38 years). Also valid diagnostic criteria were used to diagnose dementia subtypes. Despite these strengths, there remain several limitations of the study, some of which are reported by the authors. These include: Stress and di...

OCD: Getting the Right Treatment Can be a Challenge
Over the last few years I’ve connected with a lot of people who have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Most of these OCD sufferers have some kind of story to tell about their early experiences reaching out for help. And they’re usually not positive ones. They are accounts of misdiagnosis, no diagnosis, or mistreatment. They are tales of being told by family they are fine, or they must be exaggerating. They are advised to just “suck it up” or at the very least relax. If they are lucky enough to receive a proper diagnosis early on, they are often either just given medication with no offer of addit...

Conclusion It is certainly possible to reduce your exposure to artificial lights. For example, you could dump your smartphone, give away your iPad, banish television from your home, and refuse to work in any job that involves using a computer. But adopting this kind of luddite lifestyle is probably not to most people's tastes. One proven method of improving your sleep is what is known as "sleep hygiene". This is where you control both physical and environmental factors in order to promote sleep. Examples of good sleep hygiene include: not drinking tea and coffee four hours before bedtime avoiding drinking a...

It is unclear at this stage whether other relatively common mental health conditions (such as anxiety disorder or obsessive compulsive disorder) are also affected by these genetic variations, or whether there is overlap with other conditions. Perhaps most importantly, these variations cannot on their own predict or explain the development of autism, ADHD, depressi...
