Effects of intranasal oxytocin administration on empathy and approach motivation in women with borderline personality disorder: a randomized controlled trial.

Transl Psychiatry 2019 12 4;9(1):328. Epub 2019 Dec 4.

Department of Psychology, Laboratory for Biological and Personality Psychology, University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by severe interpersonal dysfunction with problems in social cognition, empathy and social approach. Although the neuropeptide oxytocin is known to regulate complex social cognition and behavior in healthy individuals and clinical populations, there is still a lack of evidence for a potential beneficial effect of oxytocin administration on social cognition and social approach in BPD. Fifty-one women with BPD and 51 matched healthy controls were randomized to a double-blind, placebo-controlled, between-subject experimental trial. Read More

Premenstrual syndrome is associated with altered cortisol awakening response.

Stress 2019 11 6;22(6):640-646. Epub 2019 May 6.

Department of Psychology, Nanjing University , Nanjing , China.

Previous studies have revealed stress-induced dysregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). So far, however, the results about the relationship between HPA axis dysregulation and PMS are mixed. To this end, it is necessary to investigate the basal activity of the HPA axis in women with PMS instead of only assessing a certain stressor. Read More

Capacity to Compensate for Central Hypovolemia and Effects of Menstrual Cycle Phases.

Aerosp Med Hum Perform 2019 Apr;90(4):378-383

Tolerance to central hypovolemia is dictated by exhaustion of the physiological capacity to compensate called the compensatory reserve. Such physiological compromise can have detrimental impact on performance in aerospace environments as well as survival from hemorrhage on the battlefield. We induced central hypovolemia using progressively stepwise lower body negative pressure (LBNP) in women during various phases of the menstrual cycle to test the hypothesis that similar tolerance across all menstrual cycle phases would be reflected by similar changes in compensatory reserve.

Menstrual cycle phase modulates responses to smoking cues in the putamen: Preliminary evidence for a novel target.

Drug Alcohol Depend 2019 05 15;198:100-104. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Background: The preclinical literature identifies the ventral striatum (VS) as a key player in drug-conditioned responses, guiding hypotheses examining neural substrates involved in human drug cue reactivity, including the study of sex differences. Men show a replicable response that includes the VS, while women's responses have been weaker and variable. New evidence suggests that the hormonal milieu modulates women's responses to drug cues in the dorsal striatum (DS), specifically, in the putamen. Read More

Modulation of the lung inflammatory response to ozone by the estrous cycle.

Physiol Rep 2019 03;7(5):e14026

Department of Pediatrics, The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Emerging evidence suggests that sex differences exist in the control of lung innate immunity; however, the specific roles of sex hormones in the inflammatory response, and the mechanisms involved are unclear. Here, we investigated whether fluctuations in circulating hormone levels occurring in the mouse estrous cycle could affect the inflammatory response to air pollution exposure. For this, we exposed female mice (C57BL/6J, 8 weeks old) at different phases of the estrous cycle to 2 ppm of ozone or filtered air (FA) for 3 h. Read More

Psychology Department, Brock University, Ontario, Canada.

Few studies have experimentally manipulated sleep to study its effect on aggressive behavior. The current study examined how reactive aggression was affected by having sleep restricted to 4-hours on a single night, a level of disruption commonly experienced. Both rested and sleep-restricted participants completed the Point Subtraction Aggression Paradigm (PSAP), a laboratory task in which participants seek to earn points, are provoked by a fictitious opponent stealing their points, and may choose to steal points in response.

Sex differences during emotion processing are dependent on the menstrual cycle phase.

Psychoneuroendocrinology 2019 02 5;100:85-95. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Department of Neurology, Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel. Electronic address:

Sex differences in the neural processing of emotion are of special interest considering that mood and anxiety disorders predominant in females. However, these sex-related differences were typically studied without considering the hormonal status of female subjects, although emotion processing in the brain was shown to differ between phases of the menstrual cycle. In this functional MRI study, we demonstrated the influence of the menstrual cycle phase on sex differences in brain activity and functional connectivity during negative and positive emotions, using two different paradigms: emotion perception and emotion experience.

Age-related changes in the bovine corpus luteum function and progesterone secretion.

Reprod Domest Anim 2019 Jan 29;54(1):23-30. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Laboratory of Animal Reproduction, Department of Animal Science, Tokyo University of Agriculture, Atsugi, Kanagawa, Japan.

Decreased fertility associated with maternal ageing is a well-known critical problem, and progesterone (P4) concentration decreases during the menopause transition in women. The corpus luteum (CL) secretes P4, thereby supporting the implantation and maintenance of pregnancy. It is proposed that a bovine model is suitable for studying age-associated decline of fertility in women because the physiology of cows is similar to that of women and cows have a greater longevity compared with other animal models.

The impact of luteal serum progesterone levels on live birth rates-a prospective study of 602 IVF/ICSI cycles.

Hum Reprod 2018 08;33(8):1506-1516

The Fertility Clinic, Skive Region Hospital, Resenvej 25, Skive, Denmark.

Study Question: Is the chance of a live birth following IVF treatment and fresh embryo transfer affected by early and mid-luteal serum progesterone (P4) levels?

Summary Answer: Low as well as high serum P4 levels in the early and mid-luteal phase reduce the chance of a live birth following IVF treatment with fresh embryo transfer.

What Is Known Already: Data from non-human studies and studies of frozen-thawed embryo transfer cycles indicate that low as well as high P4 levels during the mid-luteal phase decrease the chance of pregnancy. The altered P4 pattern may disrupt the endometrial maturation leading to asynchrony between embryonic development and endometrial receptivity, thereby, compromising implantation and early development of pregnancy.

Processing emotions: Effects of menstrual cycle phase and premenstrual symptoms on the startle reflex, facial EMG and heart rate.

Behav Brain Res 2018 10 6;351:178-187. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

Personality and Individual Differences, Institute of Psychology I, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany.

Emotional reactivity varies across the menstrual cycle although physiological findings are not entirely consistent. We assessed facial EMG and heart rate (HR) changes in healthy free cycling women (N = 45) with an emotional startle paradigm both during the early follicular and the late luteal phase, verified by repeated salivary 17β-estradiol, progesterone and testosterone assessments. Cycle phase impacted startle responses with larger magnitudes during the luteal phase. Read More

Physiological Differences in the Follicular, Luteal, and Menstrual Phases in Healthy Women Determined by Electrovestibulography: Depression, Anxiety, or Other Associations?

Neuropsychobiology 2017 5;76(2):72-81. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Riverview Health Center, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Electrovestibulography (EVestG) recordings have been previously applied toward classifying and/or measuring the severity of several neurological disorders including depression with and without anxiety. This study's objectives were to: (1) extract EVestG features representing physiological differences of healthy women during their menses, and follicular and luteal phases of their menstrual cycle, and (2) compare these features to those observed in previous studies for depression with and without anxiety. Three EVestG recordings were made on 15 young healthy menstruating females during menses, and follicular and luteal phases. Read More

Research Question: What is the molecular basis of infertility related to uterine dysfunction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

Design: In this study, differences in protein expression between PCOS and normal endometrium were identified using a proteomic approach based on two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) coupled with mass spectrometry (MS). The proteome of endometrium were analysed during the proliferative (on day 2 or 3 before ovulation, n = 6) and luteal phases (on day 3-5 after ovulation, n = 6) from healthy women and PCOS patients (12-14 days after spontaneous bleeding, n = 12). The differentially expressed proteins were categorized based on the biological process using the DAVID bioinformatics resources. Read More

PTSD in women is associated with a block in conversion of progesterone to the GABAergic neurosteroids allopregnanolone and pregnanolone measured in plasma.

Psychoneuroendocrinology 2018 07 24;93:133-141. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System, Boston, MA, 02130, USA; Department of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, 02118, USA.

There is a need to identify new and more effective treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Allopregnanolone and its stereoisomer pregnanolone (together termed ALLO) are metabolites of progesterone that positively and allosterically modulate GABA effects at GABA receptors, thereby reducing anxiety and depression. Previous research revealed that women with PTSD had low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) ALLO levels and a low ratio of ALLO to the allopregnanolone precursor 5α-DHP, consistent with deficient activity of the ALLO synthetic enzyme 3α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3α-HSD).

Endocrine mechanisms and assay issues in premature progesterone elevation in assisted reproductive technology.

Fertil Steril 2018 04;109(4):571-576

Department of Obstetrics Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine, Hopital Foch-Faculté de Médecine Paris Ouest (UVSQ), Suresnes, France.

Progesterone elevation occurring in the late phases of controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) has been reported for over 25 years. Yet doubts remain regarding the mechanisms at play in this phenomenon and its net consequences on assisted reproductive technology outcome, which is known to occur in poor and good assisted reproductive technology responders. The pathophysiology of end-COS progesterone elevation encountered in gonadotropin-suppressed cycles is different from that prevailing at the time of, and just after, ovulation. Read More
