Study links Alzheimer’s disease to abnormal cell division

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - While technology has made strides in imaging amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease, a debate continues whether the plaques are the cause or the result of the disease. A new study suggests the latter.



Karl Herrup, Ph.D., and colleagues at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland found through studying mice that AD may be triggered when adult neurons try to divide.



For unknown reasons, neurons affected by AD and many other… Continue

Celebrated author drives attention to Alzheimer’s research

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - Celebrity endorsements sometimes stir controversy. The efforts of renowned poet and educator Maya Angelou to help Alzheimer's disease research, however, come with blessings from the neuroimaging community.

Brain Stimulation Methods for Treating Depression

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - Well into the 1970s, we psychiatrists believed that depression came from anger turned inward-and we acted on this notion. Psychiatrists spent countless hours trying to get depressed patients to talk about their anger. Enterprising psychologists and psychiatrists devised schemes to make such patients angry. As a medical student, I watched from behind a one-way mirror as a hospitalized depressed man built a tower of small blocks. When he had almost completed the tower, the… Continue

Prevention and Early Interventions

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - It was not too long ago that the management of schizophrenia was generally viewed as pessimistic, and focused primarily on symptom relief. Over the past two decades, there has been a paradigm shift in our approach to the overall management of schizophrenia, toward preventive and early interventions. These approaches are being increasingly guided by recent pathophysiological models. In particular, it has become clear that neurobiological alterations are seen before onset of… Continue

Monoaminergic Treatment of Schizophrenia

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - Studies in humans and nonhuman primates have identified the prefrontal cortex as a structure that plays a central role in many aspects of cognition. Results from preclinical studies of prefrontal cortex dysfunction suggest that monoaminergic neurotransmitters exert a modulatory role on its intrinsic circuitry. Findings from several studies suggest that, in patients with schizophrenia and one of the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, cognitive impairments are associated with… Continue

Neuropsychiatric Abnormalities: A New Vista From Studies on Fundamental Properties of Neural Communication

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - In recent years, a number of researchers have suggested schizophrenia be viewed as a disorder of brain connectivity (e.g., Andreasen, 2000; Crow, 1998; Friston and Frith, 1995; Selemon and Goldman-Rakic, 1999). This view is intuitively appealing, as schizophrenia was conceptualized by Bleuler (1950) as a "splitting of the psychic functions" in which aspects of thought and personality were disintegrated.



In this article, we will review recent research on neural… Continue

(PSYCHIATRIC TIMES) - Alcohol and substance use disorders take a tremendous toll on society as a whole and also require significant emergency department (ED) resources. Alcohol use and abuse in the United States accounts for over 100,000 deaths each year1 and costs more than $185 billion annually.2 A study of the effects of alcohol-related disease and injuries found that the number of patients who presented with these conditions increased by 18% from 1992 to 2000.3
