People born between 1946 and 1970 were up to 20% more likely to report psychological distress, including symptoms of anxiety and depression during their 40s and 50s, a new study reports.
The mode of delivery at birth is a significant factor in the composition of gut bacteria. Children born via cesarean section have reduced levels of 'good' bacteria and an increased number of pathogens linked to the hospital environment.
Researchers found a correlation between better cognitive function and lower risk of emotional or behavioral problems in children and teens who live close to woodland areas and green spaces.
Researchers have identified a layer of genetic material involved in controlling the production of tau in the brain. The material is part of a larger family of non-coding genes that regulate and control other brain proteins associated with neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, and PSP. The findings could lead to the development of new therapeutics to treat a range of neurodegenerative disorders.
Children who are picky eaters are at an increased risk of developing anorexia during their teen years. Those who overeat as children are at higher risk of binge eating disorders. Persistent undereating during childhood increased the risk of developing anorexia in teen years by 6% for girls.

Combining artificial intelligence technology with brain scan data, researchers have identified three novel subtypes of multiple sclerosis.
Teens are more likely to ignore advice than younger children, but only when the advice offered is bad. This is because teens are better at judging their own decisions, researchers say. The findings reveal the development of metacognition may be a key driver of developing independence during teenage years.
