An abusive partner can be extremely loving when you make yourself available to meet all their needs and give them all your undivided attention. In fact, it is when the partner stops meeting the needs of the abuser that the tantrums, tears, insults, silent treatment or other forms of punishment are used to get their way. In many cases, an emotional abuser is co-dependent on their partner to make them happy, and make up for a...

BOSTON (CBS) – Do you often forget something almost as fast as you learned it? Maybe taking a little break is all you need. New research finds that quiet rest for as little as 10 minutes after learning something new can help you retain the details.

British researchers showed photographs to 60 young men and women and found that those who rested quietly, without falling asleep, in the minutes after they were shown the images, were better able to notice su...

A Genetic Test Could Help Predict the Right Antidepressant For You
Depression is a complicated condition, and so are the people it affects. It’s often difficult — and can take months or even years — to find the right drugs to treat the heterogeneous mood disorder. But for decades, doctors have been treating depression essentially by prescribing a drug and hoping for the best. They rely on asking people about their family history of mental illness and fold in as much information as they can about symptoms. Since 2010, however, there has been a genetic test that can help doctors learn how a person’s genetic makeup can also affect their response to various antidepress...
