The April issue of The American Journal of Psychiatry features studies that focus on youth psychopathology. Highlights include:

Promising clinical results and neuroimaging findings seen in a double-blind trial of intranasal oxytocin for irritability. (AJP Deputy Editor Danny Pine highlights the study in this video and lead author Soonjo Hwang is the featured guest on April’s AJP Audio podcast episode.) A critical integrative review of irritability in youths. A potential prognostic biomarker of clinical outcome for youths with psychosis risk syndrome (AJP Deputy Editor Danny Pine highlights the study in this video.) How the development of callous-unemotional traits from ages 7 to 12 is largely influenced by genetic factors and less so by negative parenting. The April issue of Psychiatric Services features  

Race-Based Disparities in the Frequency and Duration of Restraint Use in a Psychiatric Inpatient Setting. Benzodiazepine Prescriptions for Homeless Veterans Affairs Service Users With Mental Illness. Collaborative Psychopharmacology: A Low-Barrier Approach to Integrating Mental Health Services. Supporting People With Serious Mental Illness After Prison Release: The FIT Wellness Model.

I spy with my speedy eye – scientists discover speed of visual perception ranges widely in humans

2024-04-01
Using a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it experiment, researchers from Trinity College Dublin have discovered that individuals differ widely in the rate at which they perceive visual signals. Some people perceive a rapidly changing visual cue at frequencies that others cannot, which means some access more visual information per timeframe than others. This discovery uggests some people have an innate advantage in certain settings where response time is crucial, such as in ball sports, or in competitive ...

Reinventing computer vision to mimic human vision

Reinventing computer vision to mimic human vision
2024-04-01
As computer vision (CV) systems become increasingly power and memory intensive, they become unsuitable for high-speed and resource deficit edge applications - such as hypersonic missile tracking and autonomous navigation - because of size, weight, and power constraints. At the University of Pittsburgh, engineers are ushering in the next generation of computer vision systems by using neuromorphic engineering to reinvent visual processing systems with a biological inspiration - human vision. Rajkumar Kubendran, assistant professor ...

Ancient Adélie penguin DNA reveals that small repeats persist for hundreds of millions of years

Ancient Adélie penguin DNA reveals that small repeats persist for hundreds of millions of years
2024-04-01
Microsatellites are valuable tools for studying inheritance, genetic diversity, and population dynamics across a wide range of organisms including bacteria, plants, animals, and fungi. These short, repeating sequence motifs are a common feature of both coding and non-coding DNA and have been observed in all genomes studied to date. Their repetitive nature leads to “slippage” in the DNA replication machinery, resulting in the addition or subtraction of repeats that causes microsatellites to grow or shrink in length. Because of this, there is considerable variability ...

Applications open for 2024 Michelson prizes: $150,000 grants available to immunology innovators

2024-04-01
LOS ANGELES  – Today, Michelson Medical Research Foundation (MMRF) and the Human Immunome Project (HIP) opened the application period for the 2024 Michelson Prizes: Next Generation Grants.

Acids enables adhesive electrodes for thin, flexible supercapacitors

Acids enables adhesive electrodes for thin, flexible supercapacitors
2024-04-01
Supercapacitors have the superb ability to capture and store energy. Researchers can use different materials and fabrication methods to make them flexible, thin and appropriate for use in wearable or implantable electronics, like smart watches or pacemakers, but those approaches tend to be intricate and costly. Now, however, a team from Jilin University in China has developed a kind of all-in-one adhesive electrode that solves one of the major issues facing advancing flexible 2D supercapacitors - making the ...

Fungal resources —— Eleven new species of Trichoderma (Hypocreaceae, Hypocreales) from China
2024-04-01
Trichoderma spp. are globally distributed and are considered significant fungal resources. They are widely studied and applied due to their economic and ecological importance, offering numerous benefits, such as producing enzymes and antibiotics, aiding in plant growth, and protecting them from pathogens.   This study led by Prof. Chu-Long Zhang (Fungal Resources Utilization and Plant Protection Research Group, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China) presents the discovery of eleven new species of Trichoderma. The team obtained a total of 618 Trichoderma ...

2024-04-01
About The Study: In this quality improvement study of 35 health care facilities in Orange County, California, using quasi-experimental design, chlorhexidine bathing and nasal decolonization were associated with significantly lower multidrug-resistant organism prevalence and incident clinical cultures. Infection-related hospitalizations, associated costs, and deaths among nursing home residents also decreased.  Authors: Susan S. Huang, M.D., M.P.H., of the University of California Irvine School of Medicine in Irvine, is the corresponding author. To access the embargoed study: Visit our For The ...

Reliability and validity of smartphone cognitive testing for frontotemporal lobar degeneration

2024-04-01
About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that smartphones could offer a feasible, reliable, valid, and scalable solution for remote evaluations of frontotemporal lobar degeneration, a neurodegenerative pathology causing early-onset dementia syndromes, and may improve early detection. Smartphone assessments should be considered as a complementary approach to traditional in-person trial designs. Future research should validate these results in diverse populations and evaluate the utility of these tests for longitudinal monitoring.  Authors: Adam ...
