According to a new study, those who are genetically predisposed to be early risers have a lower risk of developing psychiatric conditions, such as depression and schizophrenia, as well as having better over all health. In contrast to other studies, researchers did not find a strong link between circadian rhythm and diseases such as obesity or diabetes.
Researchers report the striatum and amygdala are less able to track changes in threat levels in those with severe PTSD. The findings may serve as a biomarker to evaluate who may be at greater risk of PTSD symptoms.
A new computational model reveals the impaired ability to integrate size and probability of reward in those with schizophrenia may be the result of a lack of consideration of the magnitude of the reward.
Researchers report a genetic mutation that causes structural abnormalities in the adolescent brain may predict an increased risk of schizophrenia later in life.
Researchers reveal how both error and reward signals are organized within the cerebral cortex.
Researchers have developed a new model that can predict the likelihood of a person developing PTSD after a shocking event.
Researchers report the CPG2 protein is significantly decreased in the brains of people with bipolar disorder and mutations in the SYNE1 gene undermines the expression of CPG2. The study shows how a set of genetic differences in those with bipolar disorder can lead to specific psychological dysfunction in synapses in the brain. The findings could help improve diagnosis of the disorder and help develop new treatments for BD.
A new study reports sub-groups of people use their brains differently when imitating emotional faces. For those with schizophrenia, researchers found no categorically different social brain functions than those without the condition, but do fall into different sub-groups that respond to different types of treatments.
A new study reports obsessive and compulsive behaviors in young people may represent a red flag for other more serious psychiatric conditions. Researchers report a link between OCS and an increased risk of depression and suicidal thoughts in young people.
A new meta analysis study identifies dysfunction of neurocognitive networks across multiple psychiatric disorders.
