Gray matter volume in left intraparietal sulcus predicts longitudinal gains in subtraction skill in elementary school: Running title (5 words): Gray matter volume predicts subtraction.

Neuroimage 2021 Apr 6:118021. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Psychology and Human Development, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Although behavioral studies show large improvements in arithmetic skills in elementary school, we do not know how brain structure supports math gains in typically developing children. While some correlational studies have investigated the concurrent association between math performance and brain structure, such as gray matter volume (GMV), longitudinal studies are needed to infer if there is a causal relation. Although discrepancies in the literature on the relation between GMV and math performance have been attributed to the different demands on quantity vs. Read More

Impact of a Genomic Test on Treatment Decision in a Predominantly African American Population With Favorable-Risk Prostate Cancer: A Randomized Trial.

J Clin Oncol 2021 Apr 9:JCO2002997. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Pathology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Purpose: The Genomic Prostate Score (GPS), performed on biopsy tissue, predicts adverse outcome in prostate cancer (PCa) and has shown promise for improving patient selection for active surveillance (AS). However, its impact on treatment choice in high-risk populations of African Americans is largely unknown and, in general, the effect of the GPS on this difficult decision has not been evaluated in randomized trials.

Methods: Two hundred men with National Comprehensive Cancer Network very low to low-intermediate PCa from three Chicago hospitals (70% Black, 16% college graduates) were randomly assigned at diagnosis to standard counseling with or without a 12-gene GPS assay. Read More

Psychosocial Risk Factors in Cardiac Rehabilitation: Time to Screen Beyond Anxiety and Depression.

Glob Heart 2021 Feb 19;16(1):16. Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Graduate School for Health Sciences and Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM), University of Bern, Bern, CH.

Background: Although it is well acknowledged that psychosocial risk factors (PSRF) such as low socio-economic status, stress, social isolation, negative emotions and negative personality patterns may contribute to the development and adverse outcome of cardiovascular disease (CVD), screening for PSRF in CVD patients is usually limited to anxiety and depression, mainly for feasibility reasons. We therefore aimed to develop a user-friendly screening battery for routine assessment of PSRFs and to evaluate this instrument regarding feasibility of application, PSRF results and attendance of psychological counselling if recommended to cardiac rehabilitation (CR) patients.

Methods: This is a prospective single center cohort study including 609 consecutive CR patients. Read More

Controversies in Hereditary Cancer Management.

Obstet Gynecol 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Division of Subspeciality Care for Women's Health-Gynecologic Oncology, Women's Health Institute, and the Breast Center, Digestive Disease and Surgery Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Personalized management of patients at risk ideally should involve a multidisciplinary team of not only genetic counselors and surgeons, but also women's health or menopause specialists, knowledgeable psychologists, and primary care providers or obstetrician-gynecologists aware of the risks and fears "previvors" (survivors of a predisposition to cancer who have not had the disease) face as well as the issues that are common postoperatively. Identification of patients at risk for hereditary cancer, understanding of current genetic testing modalities and potential results, knowledge about screening and prevention including timing of surveillance, preventive medication and risk-reducing surgeries, understanding limitations and comorbidities associated with these risk management strategies and long-term psychological support are all important in hereditary cancer management. We describe issues surrounding the identification of the high-risk patient, universal testing in breast and ovarian cancer, and testing in special populations. Read More

Exploring the mediating effect of academic engagement on math and reading achievement for students who have experienced maltreatment.

Child Abuse Negl 2021 Apr 5;117:105048. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education, The Pennsylvania State University, United States.

Background: Students who experience maltreatment tend to underperform academically relative to their peers, requiring an understanding of academically-related mechanisms that are potential intervention targets. Academic engagement, a multidimensional construct that is influential in students' investment in learning and the school context, is one such mechanism that has been associated with positive academic outcomes and develops through interactions between students and their environment.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine how maltreatment experiences and trauma symptoms were indirectly associated with academic achievement in adolescence through academic engagement. Read More

Exenatide Adjunct to Nicotine Patch Facilitates Smoking Cessation and May Reduce Post-Cessation Weight Gain: a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial.

Nicotine Tob Res 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Center for Neurobehavioral Research on Addiction, Louis A. Faillace, M.D., Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, UTHealth, McGovern Medical School, Houston, TX.
