Researchers reveal mechanism for side effects of drug used for treating hematological malignancies

Researchers reveal mechanism for side effects of drug used for treating hematological malignancies

A team of Japanese researchers revealed the mechanism for side effects such as fever and bone pain caused by G-CSF, which is widely used for peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell harvesting (PBSCH). [More]
Simple probiotics can decrease stress-related behavior and anxiety

Simple probiotics can decrease stress-related behavior and anxiety

Probiotics, or beneficial live bacteria that are introduced into the body, have become increasingly popular as a way to improve health and well-being. [More]
Single exposure to stress may cause long-term functional and structural consequences in the brain

Single exposure to stress may cause long-term functional and structural consequences in the brain

One day a person experiences deep stress caused by a sudden happening (a traffic accident, a natural catastrophe, an episode of violence). Later on this person could develop a serious neuropsychiatric disorder that may last for years, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). [More]
Research shows corticotrophs in the brain can influence avoidance behavior after onset of stress

Research shows corticotrophs in the brain can influence avoidance behavior after onset of stress

German Resilience Center presents new findings on the resistance to stress. A person exposed to stress can usually rapidly adapt the own behavior to the specific situation. [More]
High fitness levels offer effective protection against health problems caused by work-related stress

High fitness levels offer effective protection against health problems caused by work-related stress

It is a well-known fact that fitness and well-being go hand in hand. But being in good shape also protects against the health problems that arise when we feel particularly stressed at work. [More]
Study provides new insights into how the social brain works differently in males and females

Study provides new insights into how the social brain works differently in males and females

The brain regulates social behavior differently in males and females, according to a new study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. [More]
New study reveals doctors less likely to seek help for their own mental health issues

New study reveals doctors less likely to seek help for their own mental health issues

Even as doctors across America encourage their patients to share concerns about depression, anxiety and other concerns, so they can get help from modern treatments, a new study suggests the doctors may be less likely to seek help for those same concerns about themselves. [More]
Mice study explains why antidepressants don't work in some patients

Mice study explains why antidepressants don't work in some patients

SSRI antidepressants (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, the best known being Prozactm) are amongst the most commonly taken medicines. [More]
AUDs and smoking may disproportionately increase upper airways' oxidative stress

AUDs and smoking may disproportionately increase upper airways' oxidative stress

Cells in the lung are constantly exposed to oxygen and intermittently exposed to other environmental factors, resulting in a susceptibility to oxidative injury. Both alcohol use disorders (AUDs) and cigarette smoking heighten pulmonary oxidative stress, likely due to antioxidant depletion. [More]
Learning to downregulate amygdala activity could help gain control of emotional responses

Learning to downregulate amygdala activity could help gain control of emotional responses

Training the brain to treat itself is a promising therapy for traumatic stress. The training uses an auditory or visual signal that corresponds to the activity of a particular brain region, called neurofeedback, which can guide people to regulate their own brain activity. [More]
New article examines why some individuals exhibit stress-resilient characteristics

New article examines why some individuals exhibit stress-resilient characteristics

Adapting to Stress: Understanding the Neurobiology of Resilience, an article recently published in Behavioral Medicine, examines the way our bodies, specifically our brains, become "stress-resilient." [More]
Epigenetic changes from stress exposure can be passed from traumatized parent to offspring

Epigenetic changes from stress exposure can be passed from traumatized parent to offspring

The children of traumatized people have long been known to be at increased risk for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and mood and anxiety disorders. [More]
Research provides insight into link between chronic pain and anxiety

Research provides insight into link between chronic pain and anxiety

New research provides insight into a long-observed, but little-understood connection between chronic pain and anxiety and offers a potential target for treatment. [More]
Study shows how caffeine counteracts age-related cognitive deficits in animals

Study shows how caffeine counteracts age-related cognitive deficits in animals

A study published in the journal Scientific Reports from Nature publishing group, describes the mechanism by which caffeine counteracts age-related cognitive deficits in animals. [More]
New review examines potential of antioxidant therapies to combat neurodegenerative disorders

New review examines potential of antioxidant therapies to combat neurodegenerative disorders

A new review examines the potential of antioxidant approaches for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and multiple sclerosis. [More]
Treating people in mental health hospitals with locked wards does not reduce risk of suicide attempts

Treating people in mental health hospitals with locked wards does not reduce risk of suicide attempts

Treating people with mental ill health in hospitals with locked wards, as opposed to hospitals without locked wards, does not reduce their risk of suicide attempts or of unauthorised absence from hospital, also known as ‘absconding’, according to a new 15-year study in Germany of around 145000 patient cases, published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal.

Scientists detect new genetic candidate for testing treatments that could influence fear learning in PTSD patients

Scientists detect new genetic candidate for testing treatments that could influence fear learning in PTSD patients

Researchers at The Saban Research Institute of Children's Hospital Los Angeles have identified a new genetic candidate for testing therapies that might affect fear learning in people with PTSD or other conditions. Results of the study have been published in the Journal of Neuroscience. [More]
Creative art making can help reduce stress

Creative art making can help reduce stress

Whether you're Van Gogh or a stick-figure sketcher, a new Drexel University study found that making art can significantly reduce stress-related hormones in your body. [More]
Maternal stress exposure can have major effect on child’s development and future health

Maternal stress exposure can have major effect on child’s development and future health

The environment the unborn child is exposed to inside the womb can have a major effect on her or his development and future health. Maternal stress during pregnancy can be transmitted biologically to the unborn child. [More]
Early social deprivation may lower DNA methylation within stress-related genes

Early social deprivation may lower DNA methylation within stress-related genes

New research suggests that early severe social deprivation may impact DNA modifications that affect the expression of stress-related genes. These nongenetic (or epigenetic) modifications occur when molecules called methyl groups are added to components of DNA. [More]
