Stress is one of the main reasons for deterioration in mental and physical health, and it leads to a decrease in work efficiency. Providing appropriate methods of diagnosing the level of stress allows for making a reliable verification of the effectiveness of stress reduction interventions and for assessing individual differences in reactivity to stress. The aim of this study was to review the available studies that use the most common stress induction protocols in laboratory settings and measure psychophysiological reactions to stress. Read More

[The relationship of carotid artery disease with mental and neurocognitive disorders].

Psychiatriki 2022 May 26. Epub 2022 May 26.

Therapy Center for Dependent Individuals, Athens, Greece.

Carotid stenosis constitutes a common vascular disease that significantly affects cerebral blood flow and thus is associated with patients' cognitive functions. Carotid revascularization techniques [carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS)] may benefit cognition, though there are opposing findings, reporting an apparent decrement in cognitive function, no effect, or an apparent improvement after revascularization. A great number of studies are trying to evaluate the effect of carotid revascularization (CEA, CAS) on patients' cognitive functions, as well as on their psychological condition and quality of life through a baseline and follow-up neuropsychological examination.

Ultrastructural characterisation of young and aged dental enamel by atomic force microscopy.

J Microsc 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

School of Dentistry, Faculty of Medicine, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile.

Recent advances in atomic force microscopy (AFM) have allowed the characterisation of dental-associated biomaterials and biological surfaces with high-resolution. In this context, the topography of dental enamel - the hardest mineralised tissue in the body - has been explored with AFM-based approaches at the micro-scale. With age, teeth are known to suffer changes that can impact their structural stability and function; however, changes in enamel structure because of ageing have not yet been explored with nanoscale resolution.
