How therapy and exercise 'may help some with CFS'
Conclusion This study has tried to pick apart how cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and graduated exercise therapy (GET) affected fatigue and physical function in the PACE randomised controlled trial (RCT). Its findings suggest this could partly be a result of CBT and GET reducing fear avoidance beliefs, such as the fear that exercise would make symptoms worse. But these treatments were less effective in cases where fear avoidance beliefs remained. The researchers also identified other factors (mediators) that seemed to be playing a role, such as GET increasing the maximum distance an individual could walk in ...

Conclusion This study has found an association between shorter sleep and increased reported RNT. However, there are a few points to bear in mind when considering how applicable the results of this study would be to the general population, people who have a mental illness or are particularly affected by RNT: due to the cross-sectional measure of sleep patterns at one point in time, we cannot tell whether lack of sleep, or delayed sleep, causes RNT or whether RNT causes sleep disturbance – both directions of effect are plausible none of the participants in the study were reported to be suffering from any mental ...

Going To Bed Late Can Increase Negative Thinking And Worry
Skimping on sleep by staying up late could indicate you're headed for a negative spiral of persistent worry and anxious thinking the next day, according to new research from Binghamton University. The researchers asked 100 students to complete several questionnaires and two computerized tasks to gauge repetitive negative thinking (RNT) by measuring how much the subjects worried, ruminated or obsessed over something. The subjects also answered questions about their sleep habits and schedules. Subjects who described themselves as "evening" people, as well as those who slept fewer hours at night, were found to ex...

So say Jacob Nota and Meredith Coles, who found that people who sleep for shorter periods of time and go to bed very late at night are often overwhelmed with more negative thoughts than those who keep more regular sleeping hours. The findings appear in Springer's journal Cognitive Therapy and Research. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

The Third Wave of CBT
Conclusion Thirty years ago the cognitive behavioral approach to therapy was limited to the treatment of major depressive disorder and a very limited treatment for some anxiety disorders. Most practitioners at that time viewed this approach as rather simplistic, but admittedly effective for a small range of problems. The “deeper” and more “challenging” cases would be the focus for “depth” therapies of various kinds. Although those “depth” therapies provided little evidence of any effectiveness, they were seen as addressing the “real underlying problems.” Psychothe...

Study offers insight into genetics of schizophrenia
ConclusionThis large genome-wide association study has found genetic variations in 108 loci more likely to be found in people with schizophrenia than in healthy controls. While some of these variations fell in genes that code for proteins that are already targets for drug treatments for schizophrenia, variations at 83 of the loci had not previously been implicated as being involved in schizophrenia. This provides new insights for further research.The study's strengths include the large number of cases and controls involved. But this study cannot prove that these genetic variants cause schizophrenia. It remains likely that ...

Whether fingolimod would have a similar effect on humans who did not have an impaired immune system or cognitive function is unknown.
