Early intervention for obsessive compulsive disorder: An expert consensus statement.

Eur Neuropsychopharmacol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Sackler Medical School, Tel Aviv University, Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is common, emerges early in life and tends to run a chronic, impairing course. Despite the availability of effective treatments, the duration of untreated illness (DUI) is high (up to around 10 years in adults) and is associated with considerable suffering for the individual and their families. This consensus statement represents the views of an international group of expert clinicians, including child and adult psychiatrists, psychologists and neuroscientists, working both in high and low and middle income countries, as well as those with the experience of living with OCD.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol increases striatal glutamate levels in healthy individuals: implications for psychosis.

Mol Psychiatry 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and Department of Psychosis Studies, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, London, SE5 8AF, UK.

The neurobiological mechanisms underlying the association between cannabis use and acute or long-lasting psychosis are not completely understood. While some evidence suggests altered striatal dopamine may underlie the association, direct evidence that cannabis use affects either acute or chronic striatal dopamine is inconclusive. In contrast, pre-clinical research suggests that cannabis may affect dopamine via modulation of glutamate signaling. Read More

Constructing the Immune Signature of Schizophrenia for Clinical Use and Research; An Integrative Review Translating Descriptives Into Diagnostics.

Front Psychiatry 2018 31;9:753. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Psychiatric Division, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen, Norway.

Schizophrenia is considered a syndrome comprised by several disease phenotypes, covering a range of underlying pathologies. One of these disease mechanisms seems to involve immune dysregulation and neuroinflammation. While the current dopamine receptor-blocking antipsychotic drugs decrease psychotic symptoms and prevent relapse in the majority of patients with schizophrenia, there is a huge need to explore new treatment options that target other pathophysiological pathways.

Psychodynamically Oriented Psychopharmacotherapy: Towards a Necessary Synthesis.

Front Hum Neurosci 2019 31;13:15. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Biotechnological and Applied Clinical Sciences, University of L'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy.

The discovery of psychoanalysis and of psychotropic medications represent two radical events in understanding and treatment of mental suffering. The growth of both disciplines together with the awareness of the impracticality of curing mental suffering only through pharmacological molecules-the collapse of the "Great Illusion"-and the experience of psychoanalysts using psychotropic medications along with depth psychotherapeutic treatment, have led to integrated therapies which are arguably more effective than either modality alone. The authors review studies on the role of pharmacotherapy with psychoanalysis, and the role of the analyst as the prescriber. Read More

Aphasia rehabilitation based on mirror neuron theory: a randomized-block-design study of neuropsychology and functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Neural Regen Res 2019 Jun;14(6):1004-1012

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China.

When watching someone performs an action, mirror neurons are activated in a way that is very similar to the activation that occurs when actually performing that action. Previous single-sample case studies indicate that hand-action observation training may lead to activation and remodeling of mirror neuron systems, which include important language centers, and may improve language function in aphasia patients. In this randomized-block-design experiment, we recruited 24 aphasia patients from, Zhongda Hospital, Southeast University, China. Read More

Common Taxonomy of Traits and Symptoms: Linking Schizophrenia Symptoms, Schizotypy, and Normal Personality.

Schizophr Bull 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Department of Psychiatry, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY.

The associations among normal personality and many mental disorders are well established, but it remains unclear whether and how symptoms of schizophrenia and schizotypal traits align with the personality taxonomy. This study examined the joint factor structure of normal personality, schizotypy, and schizophrenia symptoms in people with psychotic disorders (n = 288) and never-psychotic adults (n = 257) in the Suffolk County Mental Health Project. First, we evaluated the structure of schizotypal (positive schizotypy, negative schizotypy, and mistrust) and normal traits. Read More

Understanding the schizophrenia phenotype in the first patient with the full SCN2A phenotypic spectrum.

Psychiatr Genet 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

The Fred A. Litwin Family Centre in Genetic Medicine, University Health Network and Mount Sinai Hospital.

The sodium voltage-gated channel α subunit 2 (SCN2A) gene encodes a subunit of sodium voltage-gated channels expressed primarily in the central nervous system that are responsible for action potential initiation and propagation in excitable cells. SCN2A mutations underlie a spectrum of distinct phenotypes, including seizure disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, and rarer instances of episodic ataxia and schizophrenia. We report on a 38-year-old patient with adult-onset psychotic symptoms on a background of infantile-onset seizures, autistic features and episodic ataxia. Read More

Accelerated Aging of Functional Brain Networks Supporting Cognitive Function in Psychotic Disorders.

Biol Psychiatry 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee.

Background: Across networks, connectivity within the frontoparietal network (FPN) and cingulo-opercular network (CON) exhibits reductions earliest during healthy aging, contributing to cognitive impairment. Individuals with psychotic disorders demonstrate evidence of accelerated aging across multiple biological systems. By leveraging a large sample of patients with psychosis from early to chronic illness stages, this study sought to determine whether the CON and FPN exhibit evidence of accelerated aging in psychotic disorders, confirm associations between network efficiency and cognition, and determine whether reduced network efficiency is observed in early-stage psychosis.

Emotion regulation across the psychosis continuum.

Dev Psychopathol 2019 Feb 11:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Psychology,University of Georgia,Athens, GA,USA.

Emotion regulation dysfunction is characteristic of psychotic disorders, but little is known about how the use of specific types of emotion regulation strategies differs across phases of psychotic illness. This information is vital for understanding factors contributing to psychosis vulnerability states and developing targeted treatments. Three studies were conducted to examine emotion regulation across phases of psychosis, which included (a) adolescent community members with psychotic-like experiences (PLEs; n = 262) and adolescents without PLEs (n = 1,226); (b) adolescents who met clinical high-risk criteria for a prodromal syndrome (n = 29) and healthy controls (n = 29); and (c) outpatients diagnosed with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (SZ; n = 61) and healthy controls (n = 67).

Competency Restoration for Adult Defendants in Different Treatment Environments.

J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Dr. Danzer is a licensed psychologist at Florida State Hospital, Tallahassee, FL. Dr. Wheeler is a former Director of the Forensic Evaluation Department at Central State Hospital and currently in private practice at Bay Forensic Psychology, Petersburg, VA. Dr. Alexander is a Clinical Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Professional Psychology, Denver Forensic Institute of Research, Service, and Training, University of Denver, Denver, CO. Dr. Wasser is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

The optimization of trial competency restoration is a topic of growing interest and controversy in the fields of forensics, psychology, criminal law, and public policy. Research has established that adult defendants who have severe psychotic disorders and cognitive impairments are more likely than defendants without these conditions to be found incompetent to stand trial and are less likely to be restored to competency thereafter. Research has also identified some of the benefits of attempting restoration in hospitals, jails, or outpatient settings for defendants with different diagnoses or levels of cognitive functioning.

The Questionnaire for Psychotic Experiences: An Examination of the Validity and Reliability.

Schizophr Bull 2019 Feb;45(Supplement_1):S78-S87

Department of Neuroscience and Department of Psychiatry, University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands.

Psychotic experiences are prevalent across a wide variety of psychiatric, neurological, and medical conditions. Yet current assessments are often designed for one disorder, or are limited in their examination of phenomenological features; this has hindered transdiagnostic research. This article describes an examination of the validity and reliability of the English version of a new assessment, the Questionnaire for Psychotic Experiences (QPE). Read More

Intrinsic mesocorticolimbic connectivity is negatively associated with social amotivation in people with schizophrenia.

Schizophr Res 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Affective and Social Neuroscience, Center for Brain Disorders and Cognitive Sciences, Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, China; Cognitive Neuroscience Center, University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands; Department of Psychology, University of Groningen, the Netherlands.

Background: Social amotivation is a core element of the negative symptoms of schizophrenia. However, it is still largely unknown which neural substrates underpin social amotivation in people with schizophrenia, though deficiencies in the mesocorticolimbic dopamine system have been proposed.

Methods: We examined the association between social amotivation and substantia nigra/ventral tegmental area-seeded intrinsic connectivity in 84 people with schizophrenia using resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging. Read More

A window into the brain: Tools to assess preclinical efficacy of biomaterials-based therapies on central nervous system disorders.

Adv Drug Deliv Rev 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

CÚRAM, Centre for Research in Medical Devices, National University of Ireland Galway, Galway, Ireland. Electronic address:

Therapeutic conveyance into the brain is a cardinal requirement for treatment of diverse central nervous system (CNS) disorders and associated pathophysiology. Effectual shielding of the brain by the blood-brain barrier (BBB) sieves out major proportion of therapeutics with the exception of small lipophilic molecules. Various nano-delivery systems (NDS) provide an effective solution around this obstacle owing to their small size and targeting properties. Read More

Citalopram in first episode schizophrenia: The DECIFER trial.

Schizophr Res 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

National Clinical Research Center for Mental Disorders, Mental Health Institute, The Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, 139 Renmin Middle Road, Changsha, Hunan, China.

Antidepressants are frequently prescribed in first episode schizophrenia (FES) patients for negative symptoms or for subsyndromal depressive symptoms, but therapeutic benefit has not been established, despite evidence of efficacy in later-stage schizophrenia. We conducted a 52 week, placebo-controlled add-on trial of citalopram in patients with FES who did not meet criteria for major depression to determine whether maintenance therapy with citalopram would improve outcomes by preventing or improving negative and depressive symptoms. Primary outcomes were negative symptoms measured by the Scale for Assessment of Negative Symptoms and depressive symptoms measured by the Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia; both were analyzed by an intent-to-treat, mixed effects, area-under-the-curve analysis to assess the cumulative effects of symptom improvement and symptom prevention over a one-year period.
