This study aimed to investigate gray matter volume (GMV) abnormalities and TOM deficits in schizophrenic adolescents, and examine the relationship between them. Twenty adolescent schizophrenic patients and 25 age, sex-matched healthy controls underwent T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and were examined for TOM based on the Reading the Mind in the Eyes test (RMET). Univariate voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and multivariate source-based morphometry (SBM) were employed to examine alterations of two GMV phenotypes in schizophrenic adolescents: voxel-wise GMV and covarying structural brain patterns (SBPs). Com...

Conclusion: Psychiatric patients in general have poorer disease control after the COVID-19 outbreak. Patients in the community appeared to be more affected than patients residing in hostels. More efforts should be directed to screening patients with pre-existing mental health disorders to enable timely interventions.

This study examined how people living with schizophrenia recognize their lived experiences in free-floating group discussions. Interpretative phenomenological and group analyses were employed to collect qualitative data from 14 patients. The identified superordinate theme was “re-figuration of suffering” including: “being treated as an object,” “encountering the self through others,” and “returning to the self.” Participants shared their traumatizing stories of being alienated, discovered the realities of their lives and responsibilities through inward an d outward observatio...

Veterans with serious mental illness (SMI) are just as likely as veterans without SMI to be vaccinated against COVID-19, according to astudy published this week inPsychiatric Services in Advance.“Because individuals with [SMI] are at higher risk for COVID-19 infection and death, COVID-19 vaccine uptake in this population is a key concern,” wrote Taona P. Haderlein, Ph.D., M.A., of the Veterans Emergency Management Evaluation Center in North Hills, Calif., and colleagues. “Researchers have noted that fear of contracting COVID-19 via COVID-19 vaccination, as well as the ‘infodemic’ of misinforma...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Neuroimaging- and machine-learning-based brain-age prediction of schizophrenia is well established. However, the diagnostic significance and the effect of early medication on first-episode schizophrenia remains unclear.AIMS: To explore whether predicted brain age can be used as a biomarker for schizophrenia diagnosis, and the relationship between clinical characteristics and brain-predicted age difference (PAD), and the effects of early medication on predicted brain age.METHOD: The predicted model was built on 523 diffusio...
