Social media use linked to developing depression regardless of personality
Researchers in public policy and education recently found that young adults who use more social media are significantly more likely to develop depression within six months, regardless of personality type. Published in the Journal of Affective Disorders Reports, the study, "Associations between social media use, personality structure, and development of depression," was co-authored by Renae Merrill, a doctoral student in the Public Policy Program at the University of Arkansas.

Unlocking the power of our emotional memory: Neuroscientists show that it's possible to turn the volume down on a negative memory by stimulating other, happier ones
You may not realize it, but each time you recall a memory -- like your first time riding a bike or walking into your high school prom -- your brain changes the memory ever so slightly. It's almost like adding an Instagram filter, with details being filled in and information being updated or lost with each recall. "We're inadvertently applying filters to our past experiences," says Steve Ramirez (CAS'10), a Boston University neuroscientist. Even though a filtered memory is different from ...

The pros and cons of telemental health
New research led by the National Institute for Health & Care Research (NIHR) Mental Health Policy Research Unit (MHPRU) at King's College London and University College London (UCL), has shown that certain groups of people benefit from the freedom of choice that telemental health provides, but this is not true for all. The research, published today in the Interactive Journal of Medical Research, investigates which telemental health approaches work (or do not work) for whom, in ...

Not pursuing your goals during the pandemic is good for your mental health
People who shelved their long-term goals during the pandemic were better able to avoid anxiety and depression, according to a new study. Researchers at the University of Waterloo aimed to investigate the relationship between what they call COVID-frozen goals – goals for which progress has been disrupted due to COVID-19 – and psychological well-being. “Typically, when we think about how to increase goal success and well-being, we focus on how to be more committed and ...

Life’s stresses can make people focus more on their romantic partner’s negative behavior
Stressful life circumstances can affect how married couples interact, but can they affect how partners see each other? A person experiencing stress is more likely to notice their spouse’s negative behavior than positive, according to a new study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science. Prior research has focused on how stress influences behavior, but this study suggests that stress could affect what actions partners notice in the first place. The negative actions being ...

Anxiety during pregnancy can lead to earlier births, study finds: Results suggest doctors should screen for anxiety during first and third trimesters
Women who experience anxiety about their pregnancies give birth earlier on average than those who don’t, according to research published by the American Psychological Association. The study, which examined the relationship between pregnancy length and different measures of anxiety, could help doctors understand when and how best to screen for anxiety during pregnancy to help prevent preterm birth. “Anxiety about a current pregnancy is a potent psychosocial state that may affect ...

New study identifies cortisol level as indicator of addiction recovery success
A new study by researchers at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine found that lower initial cortisol levels may serve as a predictor for retention in treatment programs for substance use disorder. The prospective observational study examined the salivary cortisol, stress exposure, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and treatment retention of males enrolled in abstinence-based, residential alcohol and drug recovery programs. Their findings were published last ...

Motherhood at work: Exploring maternal mental health: Postpartum is affecting mental health at work. What can companies do about it?
Up to 1 in 5 women in the postpartum period will experience a mental health disorder like postpartum depression or generalized anxiety disorder. How an organization handles a mother's return to work can have a significant impact on her mental health, according to new research from the University of Georgia. Organizations control the majority of work-related factors that predict better mental health outcomes. This can include access to paid maternity leave, total workload, and ...

A new understanding of the neurobiology of impulsivity: Novel genetically based impulsivity score may help identify children who are especially vulnerable
While not all impulsive behaviour speaks of mental illness, a wide range of mental health disorders which often emerge in adolescence, including depression and substance abuse, have been linked to impulsivity. So, finding a way to identify and treat those who may be particularly vulnerable to impulsivity early in life is especially important. A group of researchers, led by scholars at McGill University, have developed a genetically based score which could help identify, with a high degree of ...

Newly discovered protein connected to Alzheimer’s disease risk: A mutation in the small protein is associated with Alzheimer’s risk and highlights a possible target for treatment
A mutation in a newly discovered small protein is connected to a significant increase in the risk for Alzheimer’s disease, expanding the known gene targets for the disease and presenting a new potential avenue for treatment, according to a new USC study. The protein, called SHMOOSE, is a tiny “microprotein” encoded by a newly discovered gene within the cell’s energy-producing mitochondria. A mutation within this gene partially inactivates the SHMOOSE microprotein and is associated with ...

Educators need mental health support following hurricanes, research finds
After Hurricanes Harvey and Matthew hit Texas and North Carolina, it was the custodians who removed debris and damaged supplies from the athletic fields. It was the principals who stayed in the building for 24 hours while their schools operated as shelters. It was the teachers who ran to the local pharmacy to retrieve students' lifesaving medicine while communication was limited. When hurricanes strike, educators turn into first responders for their communities and students ...

Adult ADHD linked to elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases
Adults with ADHD are at greater risk of developing a range of cardiovascular diseases than those without the condition, according to a large observational study led by researchers at Karolinska Institutet and Örebro University in Sweden. The researchers say the findings, published in the journal World Psychiatry, underscore the need to monitor cardiovascular health in people with ADHD. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental ...

Mild traumatic brain injury increases risk of behavioral and emotional problems in kids
University of Rochester researchers have been at the forefront of efforts to understand how blows to the head impact the brain, including how concussions change brain structure . Now researchers at the Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience have found that kids who experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even a mild one, have more emotional and behavioral problems than kids who do not.

Daytime eating may benefit mental health: A study on meal timing found that eating at night increased depression and anxiety-related mood levels among participants
Investigators have designed a study that simulated night work and then tested the effects of daytime and nighttime eating versus daytime eating only. The team found that, among participants in the daytime and nighttime eating group, depression-like mood levels increased by 26 percent and anxiety-like mood levels by 16 percent. Participants in the daytime-only eating group did not experience this increase, suggesting that meal timing may influence mood vulnerability.

Pregnant women with obesity and diabetes may be more likely to have a child with ADHD: Study only finds this association in women with excessive weight gain during pregnancy
Children of women with gestational diabetes and obesity may be twice as likely to develop attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) compared to those whose mothers did not have obesity, according to new research published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. The estimated number of children aged 3-17 years ever diagnosed with ADHD is 6 million, according to data from 2016-2019. A major risk factor for ADHD in children is maternal obesity.

Mothers' stress rollercoaster while pregnant linked to negative emotions in babies
Pregnant people who had bigger fluctuations in stress from one moment to the next -- also called lability -- had infants with more fear, sadness and distress at three months old than mothers with less stress variability, reports a new Northwestern University study that examined how a child's developmental trajectory begins even before birth. Prior research has found that mothers' distress during pregnancy has been related to infant temperament and behavior, but this is one of ...

Eating behaviors of parents play a role in teens' emotional eating
Emotional eating, or eating as a coping mechanism for negative, positive, or stress-driven emotions, is associated with unhealthy dietary patterns and weight gain. A research article featured in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, published by Elsevier, discusses adolescent vulnerability to emotional eating and how various feeding practices used by parents, such as restriction, food as reward, and child involvement, influence eating behavior. "Emotional eating was previously ...

Replacing social media use with physical activity can do a lot to improve your mental health, according to a new study
If you spend 30 minutes less on social media every day and engage in physical activity instead, you do a lot to improve your mental health. This is shown in a study conducted by a team from the Mental Health Research and Treatment Center at Ruhr-Universität Bochum headed by assistant professor Dr. Julia Brailovskaia. Participants who followed this advice for two weeks felt happier, more satisfied, less stressed by the Covid-19 pandemic and less depressed than a control group.

Robots can be better at detecting mental wellbeing issues in children than parent-reported or self-reported testing, a new study suggests
A team of roboticists, computer scientists and psychiatrists from the University of Cambridge carried out a study with 28 children between the ages of eight and 13, and had a child-sized humanoid robot administer a series of standard psychological questionnaires to assess the mental wellbeing of each participant. The children were willing to confide in the robot, in some cases sharing information with the robot that they had not yet shared via the standard assessment method of …

Feeling anxious or blue? Ultra-processed foods may be to blame: Researchers find U.S. adults who consume more ultra-processed food report more adverse mental symptoms
Do you love those sugary-sweet beverages, reconstituted meat products and packaged snacks? You may want to reconsider based on a new study that explored whether individuals who consume higher amounts of ultra-processed food have more adverse mental health symptoms. Although ultra-processed foods are convenient, low cost, quick to prepare or ready-to-eat, these industrial formulations of processed food substances (oils, fats, sugars, starch, protein isolates) contain little or no ...

“Cheat Meals” linked to eating disorders in adolescents and young adults
A new study published in the Journal of Eating Disorders found that, in course of a year, over half of men, women, and transgender or gender non-conforming participants engaged in at least one “cheat meal” — the practice of deviating from one’s established dietary practices to consume “prohibited” calorie dense meals, only to return to previous dietary practices later. Among women, engagement in cheat meals in the previous 12 months was associated with all seven types of eating disorder ...

Behavior problems and excessive use of gadgets - cause or effect? It's not the mobile that makes children hyperactive, but the other way round
It's not the mobile that makes children hyperactive, but the other way round: a fidgety child will use a mobile phone more - according to the latest research from the Alpha Generation Lab at the Department of Ethology at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE). Several studies suggest that early and excessive TV viewing can lead to later attention problems and hyperactivity. The reverse is also true: fidgety, restless children are more likely to use digital devices, and parents are also more ...

Targeting impulsivity early in adolescence could prevent later behavioral disorders: Study supports early intervention to halt cascading chain
Tendencies toward impulsivity in early adolescence are linked with a variety of poor outcomes in later adolescence, including antisocial personality disorder and alcohol use disorder. However, by the time teenagers reach mid-adolescence, it may be too late to target impulsivity to prevent the development of these behavioral disorders. Past research has shown the link between impulsivity and these disorders, but not how it unfolds. Now, a new study based on data tracking ...

After breakups, people feel less in-control – but only at first: Study analyzed changes in sense of control after separation, divorce and death of a partner
A new analysis of people who underwent different types of relationship loss found that these experiences were linked with different patterns of short- and long-term sense of control following the loss. Previous research has shown that a greater perceived sense of personal control over one’s life is associated with better well-being and better health. Romantic relationships are closely linked to perceived control; for instance, evidence suggests a link between perceived control and ...

Regular enquiry about well-being vs. universal screening recommended to detect depression in pregnancy and after birth
Depression in pregnant and postpartum people is a serious problem. Rather than using a screening tool with a cut-off score to detect depression in every pregnant and postpartum patient, clinicians should ask patients about their well-being as part of usual care, recommends a new guideline from the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal)

No evidence that depression is caused by low serotonin levels, finds comprehensive review
After decades of study, there remains no clear evidence that serotonin levels or serotonin activity are responsible for depression, according to a major review of prior research led by UCL scientists. The new umbrella review – an overview of existing meta-analyses and systematic reviews – published in Molecular Psychiatry, suggests that depression is not likely caused by a chemical imbalance, and calls into question what antidepressants do. Most antidepressants are selective serotonin ...
