47.1 stressor-enhanced anxiety-like behavior: importance of gut microbes
There is increasing evidence indicating that gut microbes are involved in behavioral and emotional disorders. Stressful periods exacerbate or precede the development of these disorders, but whether this involves gut microbes is not yet clear. As such, we used translational paradigms to study the role of gut microbes in anxiety-like behavior during stress. Because of the impact of stressor-induced neuroinflammation on behavior, links between the microbiota and neuroinflammation are also assessed.

47.2 early-life prebiotics, probiotics, and a stress robust phenotype
Commensal gut bacteria and their metabolites can affect host physiology and complex brain function. There is a growing interest in discovering ways to optimize health-promoting microbial ecology and metabolic signatures. Prebiotics are substrates that are used selectively by host microorganisms conferring health benefits. Galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS) and polydextrose (PDX) are US FDA-approved prebiotics that produce favorable changes in the gut microbiome/metabolome and promote a stress-robust phenotype.

47.4 psychobiotics: treating mental illness through microbiome manipulation
A gut-brain axis has been recently proposed to explain observed effects of gut microbiota on brain and behavior. Gut microbiota can affect brain processes through the regulation of inflammation and immune function, secretion of small molecules and neurotransmitters, and modulation of vagal signaling. Accumulating evidence from preclinical rodent work and preliminary human trials suggests a role for microbiota in mood, anxiety, stress, social functioning, and cognition. Thus, prebiotic and probiotic strategies aimed at favorably modulating the microbiome have begun to be tested. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of C...

42.5 attitudes, perspectives, and prevalence of molecular genetic testing in asd: big lessons from the smallest state
ASDs are among the mental health conditions with the highest genetic burden, with clinically identifiable pathogenic genetic changes explaining up to 40 percent of cases. This has led to the recommendation of genetic testing, specifically chromosomal microarray and Fragile X testing, as a key element in the evaluation of people with ASD. However, there is a large practice gap between professional recommendations and clinical practice, with only a minority of patients being tested. Understanding the reasons behind this dissonance is a crucial need; if it is not met, the implementation of genetic testing at a large scale may...

ASDs involve abnormalities across brain systems, resulting in a constellation of symptoms, including behavioral inflexibility, cognitive dysfunction, learning impairment, altered social interactions, and perceptive time difficulties. Recently, it was discovered that a common gene variant involved in noncanonical Wnt signaling, prickle2, was present in individuals with ASD. Corroborated findings in prickle2 knockout and heterozygous mice suggest patterns of behavior similar to individuals with ASD, including altered social interaction on the 3-chambered social task and behavioral inflexibility on the Barnes maze.

Bipolar spectrum disorders (BPSDs) often emerge during late adolescence; early symptoms can be hard to distinguish from typical behaviors and other disorders. Misdiagnosis and delays in treatment have consequences for both short- and long-term functioning. A recent meta-analysis showed that BPSD symptoms before an initial mood episode in BPSD provided a foundation from which a risk calculator (RC) was developed that identified offspring of BPSD who are likely to meet criteria for BPSD in the future.

New and improved neurally informed interventions are needed for the treatment of anxiety disorders. Using our nonhuman primate (NHP) model of anxious temperament (AT), we identified the extended amygdala (central nucleus of the amygdala and bed nucleus of the stria terminalis) as a core component of the circuitry that mediates the expression of extreme anxiety. Based on this finding, we characterized molecular alterations in neurons located in the extended amygdala that underlie pathological anxiety.

Parent-behavior management training is underused, leading to overmedicated and undertreated disruptive behaviors.
