Study finds empathy can be detected in people whose brains are at rest
UCLA researchers have found that it is possible to assess a person ’s ability to feel empathy by studying their brain activity while they are resting rather than while they are engaged in specific tasks.  Traditionally, empathy is assessed through the use of questionnaires and psychological assessments. The findings of this study offer an alternative to people who may have difficulty filling out questionnaires, such as people with severe mental illness or autism, said senior author Dr. Marco Iacoboni, professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.“Assessi...

Blinders for Coping with Schizophrenia
When horses pull a carriage, sometimes they are wearing blinders over their eyes so they cannot look to the right or left. They can only look forward without any distractions coming into their view. This is a good picture of how I approach my life in recovery from schizophrenia. Metaphorically speaking, putting on blinders each day is a way I have learned to cope with my diagnosis of schizophrenia.  Every month I go to a veteran’s hospital to get blood work for my medication and to get my monthly injectable. On the drive there, I am the only one in the car so if I hear a voice, I block it out because the doors a...

Study identifies interaction site for serotonin type 3A and RIC-3 chaperone
(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center) Serotonin type 3A is a member of the protein superfamily known as pentameric ligand-gated ion channels. When these channels don't function properly, these proteins have been linked to Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, schizophrenia, alcohol addiction and myasthenia gravis. Michaela Jansen, Pharm.D., Ph.D., from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center recently completed a study that provides novel insights into a protein-protein interaction that could lead to more effective treatments for these disorders.

Genetics of schizophrenia in the South African Xhosa
Africa, the ancestral home of all modern humans, is the most informative continent for understanding the human genome and its contribution to complex disease. To better understand the genetics of schizophrenia, we studied the illness in the Xhosa population of South Africa, recruiting 909 cases and 917 age-, gender-, and residence-matched controls. Individuals with schizophrenia were significantly more likely than controls to harbor private, severely damaging mutations in genes that are critical to synaptic function, including neural circuitry mediated by the neurotransmitters glutamine, -aminobutyric acid, and dopamine.

However, a review of real-world data from observational studies confirms its place as a drug that may work when others fail.

Cost-effectiveness analyses that use quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) allow comparing the value for money of interventions across different health problems. Health state utility values (HSUVs) are crucial to calculate QALYs. These are weights attached to a given health state reflecting preferences in health-related quality of life (HRQoL). In schizophrenia, there is extensive evidence about the consequences of this condition on HRQoL. Besides, several interventions have claimed to be cost-effective in terms of QALYs gained. Despite this evidence, a systematic review of HSUVs has not been conducted. Therefore, we aim to ...
