Are survivors of cardiac arrest provided with standard cardiac rehabilitation? - Results from a national survey of hospitals and municipalities in Denmark.

Eur J Cardiovasc Nurs 2021 Apr;20(2):115-123

Danish Knowledge Centre for Rehabilitation and Palliative Care, Odense University Hospital and University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Aim: To quantify the provision of standard cardiac rehabilitation to Danish survivors of cardiac arrest at a programme level, and to analyse whether organizational factors influenced the provision.

Method: We mapped the provision of cardiac rehabilitation core components to survivors of cardiac arrest and compared this with a reference group of patients after acute myocardial infarction using data from a cross-sectional programme-level survey among all hospitals (n = 34) and municipalities (n = 98) in Denmark. Organizational factors of potential importance to service provision were considered: health care region, size of catchment area/population, type of department/municipality and socioeconomic index.

Protocol for The Pregnancy During the COVID-19 Pandemic (PdP) study: A longitudinal cohort study of mental health among pregnant Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic and developmental outcomes in their children.

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive, NW, Calgary, CA.

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic and countermeasures implemented by governments around the world have led to dramatically increased symptoms of depression and anxiety. Pregnant women may be particularly vulnerable to the negative psychological effects of COVID-19 public health measures, because they represent a demographic that is most affected by disasters and because pregnancy itself entails significant life changes that require major psychosocial and emotional adjustments. The Pregnancy During the COVID-19 Pandemic (PdP) study was designed to investigate the associations between exposure to objective hardship caused by the pandemic, perceived stress and psychological distress in pregnant individuals, and developmental outcomes in their offspring.

DNA methylation in cord blood in association with prenatal depressive symptoms.

Clin Epigenetics 2021 Apr 12;13(1):78. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Women's and Children's Health, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

Uncovering the prevalence and neural substrates of anhedonia in frontotemporal dementia.

Brain 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

The University of Sydney, Brain and Mind Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Much of human behaviour is motivated by the drive to experience pleasure. The capacity to envisage pleasurable outcomes and to engage in goal-directed behaviour to secure these outcomes depends upon the integrity of frontostriatal circuits in the brain. Anhedonia refers to the diminished ability to experience, and to pursue, pleasurable outcomes, and represents a prominent motivational disturbance in neuropsychiatric disorders. Read More

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Apr 12;10(4):e28089. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Neonatology, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, School of Medicine, University of Crete, Heraklion, Greece.

Background: There is limited knowledge on the physiological and behavioral pathways that may affect the developmental outcomes of preterm infants and particularly on the link between autonomic nervous system maturation and early social human behavior.

Extrasynaptic δ-subunit containing GABA receptors.

Ayla Arslan

J Integr Neurosci 2021 Mar;20(1):173-184

School of Advanced Studies, University of Tyumen, 9 Marta Street 2k1, 625000 Tyumen, Russia.

γ-Aminobutyric acid type A receptors (GABARs) are GABA gated heteropentameric chloride channels responsible for the adult brain's primary inhibition. In specific brain cells, such as in the hippocampus, one of the subtypes of GABARs, the δ subunit containing GABARs (δ-GABARs), is predominantly expressed and located in extrasynaptic or perisynaptic positions. δ-GABARs mediate a slow constant inhibitory current called tonic inhibition.

Front Neurosci 2021 23;15:616883. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

IRC-FSH Department of Health Sciences, University "Magna Græcia" of Catanzaro, Catanzaro, Italy.

Different bacterial families colonize most mucosal tissues in the human organism such as the skin, mouth, vagina, respiratory, and gastrointestinal districts. In particular, the mammalian intestine hosts a microbial community of between 1,000 and 1,500 bacterial species, collectively called "microbiota." Co-metabolism between the microbiota and the host system is generated and the symbiotic relationship is mutually beneficial. Read More

Childhood exposure to ambient air pollution and predicting individual risk of depression onset in UK adolescents.

J Psychiatr Res 2021 Mar 25;138:60-67. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

King's College London, Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, London, UK; ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health, King's College London, London, UK. Electronic address:

Knowledge about early risk factors for major depressive disorder (MDD) is critical to identify those who are at high risk. A multivariable model to predict adolescents' individual risk of future MDD has recently been developed however its performance in a UK sample was far from perfect. Given the potential role of air pollution in the aetiology of depression, we investigate whether including childhood exposure to air pollution as an additional predictor in the risk prediction model improves the identification of UK adolescents who are at greatest risk for developing MDD.

Distribution of microRNAs associated with major depressive disorder among blood compartments.

J Int Med Res 2021 Apr;49(4):3000605211006633

Department of Biochemistry, "Victor Babes" University of Medicine and Pharmacy Timisoara, Timisoara, Romania.

Objective: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a recurrent disorder with an increasing incidence. Alterations in key signaling pathways of the nervous system, such as the Wnt and MAPK pathways, mediated through microRNAs (miRNAs) provide crucial information regarding the etiopathology of MDD. We aimed to analyze whether the heterogeneity of literature findings regarding differential expression of miRNAs in the blood could arise from their different distributions among blood compartments.
