Can parents' stress impact the health of future generations?
A new review published in Biology Letters of The Royal Society examines the long-term impacts of exposure to stressors during development. The review by Dr. Britt Heidinger, North Dakota State University, Fargo, and Dr. Mark Haussmann, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, looks at whether the effect of stressors on parents lingers to impact the health of their offspring.

Study: How depressive thoughts persevere, interfere with memory in people with depression
Intrusive, enduring, depressive thoughts are an ever-present part of daily life for people with depression. A first of its kind study from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas published earlier this year in the Journal of Affective Disorders shows that depressive thoughts are maintained for longer periods of time for people with depressed mood, and this extended duration may reduce the amount of information that these individuals can hold in their memory.

New study suggests fair division of chores leads to better sex life
Looking for more and better sex? If you're a man, you might consider doing the dishes once in a while. A new study out of the University of Alberta reveals that couples enjoyed more frequent and satisfying sex for both partners when men made a fair contribution to housework. The same study also found there's no relationship between the amount of housework male partners completed and the sexual functioning of a couple.

Interrupted Sleep Not Good for Your Mood, Study Suggests: Those who slept fewer hours, but without disruptions, felt more positive the next day
Waking up several times a night is more likely to put you in a bad mood than a shorter amount of sleep without interruption, a new study finds. "When your sleep is disrupted throughout the night, you don't have the opportunity to progress through the sleep stages to get the amount of slow-wave sleep that is key to the feeling of restoration," said lead author Patrick Finan, assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins University ...

Forget counting sheep -- Therapy could help chronic pain sufferers get a good night's sleep
Research conducted at the University of Warwick indicates that chronic pain sufferers could benefit from therapy to help them sleep better. The University of Warwick academics found that cognitive behavioural therapies (CBT) were either moderately or strongly effective in tackling insomnia in patients with long-term pain. They also discovered that chronic pain sufferers didn't just benefit from improved sleep but also experienced a wider positive impact on ...

Self-injury: Raising the profile of a dangerous behavior
Nonsuicidal self-injury is not officially recognized by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) as a mental disorder, which means insurance may not cover treatment - despite estimates that anywhere from 10 to 40 percent of adolescents suffer from it. New research lays out a case for recognizing the condition, as profiled in a new report.

Study finds complete symptom resolution reduces risk of depression recurrence
People who have had an episode of major depression are at high risk for having another episode. Now, researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found that the risk of recurrence is significantly lower for people with complete, rather than partial depressive symptom resolution. The findings, published online October 27 in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, point to the need to redefine clinically what constitutes the end of a major depressive ...

Wives take problems to heart, husbands get frustrated: Study finds women want support; men not so much
The sociologist who found that 'A Happy Wife, Means a Happy Life' looked at sadness, worry and frustration -- among the most common negative emotions reported by older adults -- and discovered that men and women in long-term marriages deal with marriage difficulties differently.

Depression too often reduced to a checklist of symptoms
How can you tell if someone is depressed? The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) – the ‘bible’ of psychiatry – diagnoses depression when patients tick off a certain number of symptoms on the DSM checklist. A large-scale quantitative study coordinated at KU Leuven, Belgium, now shows that some symptoms play a much bigger role than others in driving depression, and that the symptoms listed in DSM may not be the most useful ones.

Children in foster care three times more likely to have ADHD diagnosis
Researchers already knew that attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was the most common behavioral health diagnosis among children enrolled in Medicaid. A new study to be presented at the American Academy of Pediatrics 2015 National Conference & Exhibition in Washington, DC, found that children in foster care were three times more likely than others to have an ADHD diagnosis.

Brain changes may underlie anorexia food choices
Differences in brain activity may underlie some of the unhealthy eating patterns in people with anorexia nervosa, a study suggests. People hospitalized for anorexia nervosa activate unique areas of their brains while making decisions between various foods, researchers found. “This study is exciting because it is the first time that we have been able to directly study what is going on in the brain when individuals with anorexia nervosa make decisions about what food to eat ...

Burnout and depression: two entities or one? CCNY provides answer
Burnout and depression overlap considerably, according to the latest study on the subject led by psychology Professor Irvin S. Schonfeld of The City College of New York’s Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership and his colleague, Renzo Bianchi, of the Institute of Work and Organizational Psychology, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The findings are based on a survey taken by 1,386 public school teachers, from pre-K to 12th grade across the United States, ...

High-fat diet may cause changes in the brain that lead to anxiety and depression
A new study in mice reveals that increased body weight and high blood sugar as a result of consuming a high-fat diet may cause anxiety and depressive symptoms and measurable changes in the brain. Also, the beneficial effects of an antidepressant were blunted in mice fed a high-fat diet.

School absenteeism and early behavioral problems in kindergarten
At least 5% of children and adolescents in Germany are in need of psychiatric treatment. Diagnostic investigation for behavioral problems is indicated in another 10% to 18%. Two articles in Deutsches Ärzteblatt International go into the questions of what interventions help children who are avoiding school, and whether providing support for social and emotional skills can improve prosocial behavior in preschool children.

Different types of child abuse: similar consequences - In the long run, emotional abuse might hurt a child as much as violence or neglect
Emotional abuse may be as harmful as physical abuse and neglect. This finding led by a team of researchers at McGill University complements previous imaging research showing that emotional and physical pain both activate the same parts of the brain. Emotional abuse, which includes behaviors such as ridicule, intimidation, rejection, and humiliation, is much more common than physical abuse and neglect. Worldwide prevalence estimates suggest that approximately ...

Most teen mood swings decline with age
Adolescence is typically regarded as a period of heightened emotionality. Although the teen years are an important time for youth to learn to regulate their emotions, little research has looked at the development of teens' emotional stability. Now a new longitudinal study has found that adolescents' mood swings decline gradually as they get older, which should reassure parents about their moody teens while also helping identify when instability is considered risky and ...

In a negative emotional climate, romantic partners may miss attempts to warm things up!
A new University of Illinois study reports that when conflict occurs in romantic relationships, the negative emotional climate that results hinders a person’s ability to recognize their partner’s attempts to reach out to them. “When we evaluate relationship maintenance in couples, the important measure is not what’s actually happening in the relationship but how those persons perceive their partner’s efforts. That perception creates the climate in which attempts at ...

Prescription Painkiller Abuse Rate Down, But Many Are Addicted: Second study finds 80 percent of abusers don't get treatment for their addiction
The percentage of American adults who are abusing prescription narcotic painkillers has dipped slightly in the last decade, a new survey reveals. That's the good news. The bad news: Those who do abuse these powerful drugs are doing so more frequently and they are more likely to become addicted.

Brain scans could predict patients at risk of major depression
Scientists studying people with depression say brain scans could be used to predict who is most likely to relapse, an approach that could help doctors make better decisions about who should stay on antidepressants and who should stop. In a small study of 64 patients, the researchers found that significant differences showed up in brain scans of those who later went on to have a recurrence of their depression.

Face-to-Face Contact May Beat Email, Phone for Staving Off Depression: Older people who spent more time communicating in person showed fewer symptoms of mood disorder
While your days may be filled with electronic communications, a new study suggests that face-to-face contact might have more power to keep depression at bay -- at least if you're older. The research doesn't prove that personal conversations are more valuable than email and phone calls. Still, study author Dr. Alan Teo, a staff psychiatrist at VA Portland Health Care System in Oregon, is convinced there's a connection.

Psychostimulants More Likely to Reduce Rather Than Worsen Anxiety in Children with ADHD
A new review of studies involving nearly 3,000 children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) concludes that, although anxiety has been reported as a side-effect of stimulant medication, psychostimulant treatment for ADHD significantly reduces the risk of anxiety.

Grades May Sink for Girls Who Are Compulsive Texters: But similar link with poor school performance wasn't seen for boys
Compulsive texting can lead to poor school performance for teenage girls, a new study suggests. "It appears that it is the compulsive nature of texting, rather than sheer frequency, that is problematic," said lead researcher Kelly Lister-Landman, who was at Chestnut Hill College in Pennsylvania when the study was conducted.

Gut bacteria population, diversity linked to anorexia nervosa: Studying the 'gut-brain axis,' researchers find evidence of an association
Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine found that people with anorexia nervosa have very different microbial communities residing inside their guts compared to healthy individuals and that this bacterial imbalance is associated with some of the psychological symptoms related to the eating disorder.

Many women experience 'post-sex blues'
Very few studies on female sexual dysfunction have looked at postcoital dysphoria (PCD), or "post-sex blues," which is characterized by tearfulness, a sense of melancholy or depression, anxiety, agitation, or aggression following sexual intercourse.

Depression Adds to Burden of Alzheimer's Caregivers, Study Finds: For spouses already depressed when their loved one was diagnosed, their stress only grew
Depression increases the mental strain on people caring for loved ones recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a new study finds. The study included spouses and other family caregivers of 236 people in Finland who were diagnosed with very mild or mild Alzheimer's disease. The caregivers were followed for three years after their loved ones were diagnosed.

Relationship Quality Affects Siblings’ Mental Health, Risky Behaviors
Latinos are the fastest-growing ethnic minority group in the United States, and most are of Mexican origin, previous research has shown.

Now, a University of Missouri researcher found sibling relationship quality in adolescence affects Mexican-origin ...

Therapy Can Prevent Anxiety in Children, Study Says
A woman who won’t drive long distances because she has panic attacks in the car. A man who has contamination fears so intense he cannot bring himself to use public bathrooms.

Sleep Apnea May Raise Risk of Depression: Study suggests popular apnea treatment could help ease symptoms of mood disorder
People with sleep apnea are at increased risk for depression, but continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for their apnea may ease their depression, a new study suggests. The Australian study included 293 men and women who were newly diagnosed with sleep apnea. Nearly 73 percent had depression when the study began. The worse their apnea, the more severe their depression.

Gene Tied to Adult Depression After Childhood Abuse: But the same DNA variant is linked to more happiness in people without such abuse histories, researchers say
Even though survivors of childhood physical or sexual abuse can face a higher risk for depression as adults, not everyone will become depressed. Now, new Australian research points to DNA as a potential factor in determining who will suffer depression later on. Scientists say they've spotted a gene variant that appears to raise the odds of depression in adults who suffered childhood abuse.

Adolescent brain may be especially sensitive to new memories, social stress, and drug use
Adolescence, like infancy, has been said to include distinct sensitive periods during which brain plasticity is heightened; but in a review of the neuroscience literature published on September 23 in Trends in Cognitive Sciences, University College London (UCL) researchers saw little evidence for this claim. However, a small number of studies do support that memory formation, social stress, and drug use are processed differently in the adolescent brain compared to other ..

Parents Should Be Involved in Teen's Bulimia Treatment: Recovery is faster when family is part of therapy, researchers find
Teens with bulimia recover faster when their parents are involved in their treatment, new research reports. Traditionally, parents have been excluded from the treatment and counseling of teens with bulimia, the researchers said. But, the study's authors found that having parents play a role in their children's treatment was ultimately more effective.

Workplace bullying may increase risk of suicidal thoughts
Workers who are victims of bullying on the job may become more likely to contemplate suicide than people who don’t experience a hostile office environment, a Norwegian study suggests. Researchers surveyed a nationally representative sample of roughly 1850 workers and followed them from 2005 to 2010. While less than five percent of participants reported thoughts of suicide during the study period, they were about twice as likely to do so after being victims of workplace bullying.
