BIDMC researchers ID, treat faulty brain circuitry underlying symptoms of schizophrenia
(Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) In a first-of-its-kind study, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center researchers determined the underlying anatomical cause of certain symptoms of schizophrenia, then ameliorated them with non-invasive brain stimulation. The scientists reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry that these symptoms arise from a breakdown in a network between the brain's prefrontal cortex and the cerebellum, and that non-invasive brain stimulation restored network function, which in turn improved schizophrenia's most debilitating symptoms.

Can Exercise Prevent Depression? Here ’s What the Science Says
Ask anyone who’s ever felt better after a workout, and they’ll tell you that exercise and mental health are related. Science backs up that gut feeling. Many studies have found that physical activity is linked to a lower risk of developing depression, and better outcomes for people who have it. But does exercise actually prevent depression, or are people who don’t have depression simply more likely to be active? A new study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, sheds some light on that question. Using genetic data from more than 600,000 adults enrolled in multiple genomic association studies, researchers found &l...

Escape from Trauma: Dissociation and Development of Identity

In terms of posttraumatic stress disorder, we talk about dissociation as a disruption in four different areas of functioning: identity, memory, consciousness, self-awareness, and awareness of surroundings. In understanding the human response to trauma, it is thought that dissociation is a central defense mechanism because it provides a method of escape 1. When physical escape is impossible, dissociation provides a type of mental escape. Those who experience dissociation may notice lapses in memory of certain time periods or events.
