Oxytocin, Alcohol Seem to Work on Brain in Similar Ways: So-called 'love hormone' may one day help treat some psychiatric disorders, researchers say
The so-called "love hormone" oxytocin affects human behavior in much the same way as alcohol does, British researchers report. Oxytocin is a hormone involved in mother-child bonding, social interactions and romance. Previous research has shown that oxytocin boosts socially positive behaviors such as generosity, empathy and altruism, and makes people more willing to trust others, the researchers said.

People with depression may be more likely to develop Parkinson's disease
People with depression may be more likely to develop Parkinson's disease, according to a large study published in the May 20, 2015, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. "We saw this link between depression and Parkinson's disease during over a timespan of more than two decades, so depression may be a very early symptom of Parkinson's disease or a risk factor for the disease," said study author ...

Are temper, anxiety, homework trouble medical issues? Many parents don’t realize it: Just half of parents of school-aged children would discuss anxiety or temper tantrums that seemed worse than peers
Parents often bring their school-aged children to check-ups or sick visits armed with questions. What should he put on that rash? What about her cough that won’t go away? But when children’s temper tantrums or mood swings are beyond the norm, or they are overwhelmed by homework organization, do parents speak up? Today’s University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health finds that many parents of children age 5-17 wouldn’t ...

Penn research points to omega-3 as an intervention for childhood behavioral problems
At the forefront of a field known as "neurocriminology," Adrian Raine of the University of Pennsylvania has long studied the interplay between biology and environment when it comes to antisocial and criminal behavior. With strong physiological evidence that disruption to the emotion-regulating parts of the brain can manifest in violent outbursts, impulsive decision-making and other behavioral traits associated with crime, much of Raine's research involves looking at biological ...

CDC: 1 in 10 Children Diagnosed With ADHD -- Numbers remain unchanged since 2007; boys still twice as likely to have the condition as girls
One in 10 children and teens has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a new government report. That number has remained relatively steady since 2007, according to government estimates. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report offers a snapshot of how many children and teens currently have ADHD. However, it's tough to draw conclusions from this data about the reasons for the findings, said lead author ...

Bullying: What we know based on 40 years of research -- APA journal examines science aimed at understanding causes, prevention
A special issue of American Psychologist provides a comprehensive review of over 40 years of research on bullying among school age youth, documenting the current understanding of the complexity of the issue and suggesting directions for future research. "The lore of bullies has long permeated literature and popular culture. Yet bullying as a distinct form of interpersonal aggression was not systematically studied until the 1970s. Attention to the topic has since ...

No laughing matter: some perfectionists have a dark side -- Study explores differences in humor and social behavior among three types of perfectionism
The type of perfectionist who sets impossibly high standards for others has a bit of a dark side. They tend to be narcissistic, antisocial and to have an aggressive sense of humor. They care little about social norms and do not readily fit into the bigger social picture. So says Joachim Stoeber of the University of Kent in the UK, who compared the characteristics of so-called other-oriented perfectionists against those of perfectionists who set the bar extremely high for themselves.

Study Links Sleep Troubles to Children's Mental Health: Some of the problems included anxiety, depression and ADHD, researchers say
There is a link between sleep and young children's mental health, a new study suggests. Researchers looked at sleep patterns and the mental health of 1,000 children starting when they were toddlers. They found that those with sleep disorders at age 4 were at increased risk for mental health problems -- such as anxiety and depression -- at age 6. They also discovered that children with mental health problems at age 4 were at increased risk for sleep disorders at age 6.

Think More Sex Will Make You Happier? Think Again: Study of straight married couples found no emotional boost with more activity in the bedroom
Despite what many may think, getting a little more active between the sheets isn't a path to more happiness, a new study suggests. The study from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh included 128 married, heterosexual couples, aged 35 to 65. All were randomly assigned to either double the amount of sex they had each week or to have their usual amount of sex. Researchers then tracked the couples' happiness over three months using online questionnaires.

Personal cues can have a strong effect on craving in individuals with addiction
Unique person-specific cues--such as the presence of a specific friend or hearing a specific song--appear to have a robust effect on craving addictive substances, a recent study shows. The study also found that person-specific cues may have a longer effect on craving than more general substance-specific cues, such as the presence of bottles, syringes, or lighters.

Moms' Pre-Pregnancy Obesity Tied to ADHD, Other Issues in Kids
Children whose mothers were very obese going into pregnancy may face an increased risk of emotional and behavioral problems, a new study suggests. Researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that when moms were severely obese before pregnancy, their kids were more likely to have issues like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and developmental delays at the age of 6.

ADHD Tied to Higher Risk of Eating Disorder in Kids and Teens: Study links attention disorder and a form of binge-eating syndrome
Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have an increased risk of a certain type of eating disorder, according to a new study. The eating disorder is called loss of control eating syndrome (LOC-ES). As the name implies, people with this disorder sometimes can't stop eating, even if they want to, according to the researchers from the Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore.

Short-term debt and depressive symptoms may go hand-in-hand: Findings could inform changes to lending practices and provide new insights for mental health practitioners
Results to be published in the Journal of Family and Economic Issues suggest that having short-term household debt – credit cards and overdue bills – increases depressive symptoms. The association is particularly strong among unmarried people, people reaching retirement age and those who are less well educated, according to a new study by lead author Lawrence Berger of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Gambling is all an illusion: Gamblers are more impulsive and “see” more illusory patterns where there are none, study finds
Pathological gamblers “see” patterns in things that are actually quite random and not really there, to such a degree that they are quite willing to impulsively bet good money on such illusory nonrandomness. This is confirmed by Wolfgang Gaissmaier of the University of Konstanz in Germany and Andreas Wilke of Clarkson University in the USA, leaders of a study in Springer’s Journal of Gambling Studies that sheds light on why some people are gamblers and others not.

Divorce May Increase Psychosomatic Symptoms in Teens, Study Suggests: Fewest health-related problems occurred in adolescents with two parents living in same home
Teens may have an increased risk for psychosomatic symptoms -- physical problems caused by mental distress -- if their parents separate or divorce, a new study suggests. Those who lived mostly with one parent due to a family breakup had the most psychosomatic symptoms, while those who lived in the same home with both parents had the fewest. Children whose parents had joint custody arrangements had fewer psychosomatic symptoms than those who lived ...

Depression, Weapons May Be More Common for Bullied Teens: Cyber abuse often causes more damage than face-to-face nastiness, researcher says
Bullied high school students have greater odds for depression and suicidal thoughts than others, and they're also more likely to take weapons to school, according to three new studies. "Teens can be the victim of face-to-face bullying in school, electronic bullying outside of the classroom and dating violence," said Dr. Andrew Adesman, senior investigator of the studies. Each experience is associated with a range of serious adverse consequences, he added.

Health Visits May Offer Chance to Prevent Suicide: Study says many see a doctor before ending their life
Many people who attempt suicide have a health care visit in the weeks or months beforehand, which suggests health visits may provide opportunities for suicide prevention, researchers report.

1 in 3 Teen Boys Sexually Assaulted Tries Suicide, Study Finds: Psychologist calls for greater support for all victims -- female and male
Teen boys who have been a victim of sexual assault are likelier to attempt suicide, a new study says. University at Buffalo researchers analyzed data from more than 31,000 American teens, aged 14 to 18, who took part in surveys in 2009 and 2011. Among healthy-weight boys, 3.5 percent of those with no history of sexual assault attempted suicide within the past year, compared with more than 33 percent of those who had been sexually assaulted, the investigators found.

Facebook users' wishful thinking: Cyberbullying, depression won't happen to me
Facebook users with so-called optimistic bias think they're less likely than other users to experience cyberbullying, depression and other negative social and psychological effects from using the site, a study finds. The study suggests that optimistic bias, or an intrinsic tendency to imagine future events in a favorable light that enhances positive self-regard -- in other words, wishful thinking -- leaves those Facebook users vulnerable to the negative realities of social media.

Family Stress May Figure in Soldiers' Suicide Risk: Findings suggest need to support those at home, expert says
Service members who have to deal with trouble at home when they're deployed may be at increased risk of suicidal thoughts, a study of U.S. veterans suggests.

Extraversion May Be Less Common Than We Think
Social scientists have long known that, statistically speaking, our friends are more popular than we are.

New research by researchers Daniel C. Feiler and Adam M. Kleinbaum of Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College extends this so-called ...
