Effect of atorvastatin on delirium status of patients in the intensive care unit: a randomized controlled trial.

Arch Med Sci 2021 12;17(5):1423-1428. Epub 2019 Nov 12.

Biotechnology Research Center, Pharmaceutical Technology Institute, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran.

Introduction: Delirium is one of the most prevalent complications in intensive care unit (ICU) patients, which is related to worse clinical outcomes including a longer ICU stay, longer duration of mechanical ventilation, higher mortality rates and increased risk of cognitive impairment. Observational studies have suggested that statins might have a positive effect on delirium status of hospitalized patients. To date, there has been no trial assessing the effect of atorvastatin on delirium status in critically ill patients. Read More

The Developing Brain in the Digital Era: A Scoping Review of Structural and Functional Correlates of Screen Time in Adolescence.

Front Psychol 2021 27;12:671817. Epub 2021 Aug 27.

Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, Università della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switzerland.

The widespread diffusion of screen-based devices in adolescence has fueled a debate about the beneficial and detrimental effects on adolescents' well-being and development. With the aim of summarizing the existing literature on the associations between screen time (including Internet-related addictions) and adolescent brain development, the present scoping review summarized evidence from 16 task-unrelated and task-related neuroimaging studies, published between 2010 and 2020. Results highlight three important key messages: (i) a frequent and longer duration of screen-based media consumption (including Internet-related addictive behaviors) is related to a less efficient cognitive control system in adolescence, including areas of the Default Mode Network and the Central Executive Network; (ii) online activities act as strong rewards to the brain and repeated screen time augments the tendency to seek short-term gratifications; and (iii) neuroscientific research on the correlates between screen time and adolescent brain development is still at the beginning and in urgent need for further evidence, especially on the underlying causality mechanisms.

Time coding in rat dorsolateral striatum.

Neuron 2021 Sep 6. Epub 2021 Sep 6.

Cognitive Neuroscience, International School for Advanced Studies, Via Bonomea 265, 34136 Trieste, Italy. Electronic address:

To assess the role of dorsolateral striatum (DLS) in time coding, we recorded neuronal activity in rats tasked with comparing the durations of two sequential vibrations. Bayesian decoding of population activity revealed a representation of the unfolding of the trial across time. However, further analyses demonstrated a distinction between the encoding of trial time and perceived time. Read More

A Metabolic Intervention for Improving Human Cognitive Performance During Hypoxia.

Aerosp Med Hum Perform 2021 Jul;92(7):556-562

During hypoxia an operators cognitive performance may decline. This decline is linked to altered brain metabolism, resulting in decreased adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. Ketone bodies are an alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have shown that the presence of elevated ketone bodies in the blood maintains brain ATP levels and reduces cerebral glycolysis during hypoxia.

Outcomes in the treatment of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) with CBTip: Response in seizure frequency, depression, anxiety, and quality of life.

Epilepsy Behav 2021 Sep 4;123:108277. Epub 2021 Sep 4.

The Charles Shor Epilepsy Center Neurological Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, United States.

Rationale: Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures (PNES) are seizure-like episodes without EEG abnormality, and are of psychological origin. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a type of psychological counseling, is known to be the best intervention to treat PNES and the underlying psychiatric symptoms. Yet, many remain untreated because of limited access to specialized counseling programs. Read More

Epilepsia 2021 Sep 7. Epub 2021 Sep 7.

Neuroimaging of Epilepsy Laboratory, McConnell Brain Imaging Centre, Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Objective: Drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is typically associated with hippocampal pathology. However, widespread network alterations are increasingly recognized and suggested to perturb cognitive function in multiple domains. Here we tested (1) whether TLE shows atypical cortical hierarchical organization, differentiating sensory and higher order systems; and (2) whether atypical hierarchy predicts cognitive impairment.

Concealing Untrustworthiness: The Role of Conflict Monitoring in a Social Deception Task.

Front Psychol 2021 20;12:718334. Epub 2021 Aug 20.

Institute of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, University of Kiel, Kiel, Germany.

Deception studies emphasize the important role of event-related potentials (ERPs) to uncover deceptive behavior based on underlying neuro-cognitive processes. The role of conflict monitoring as indicated by the frontal N2 component during truthful and deceptive responses was investigated in an adapted Concealed Information Test (CIT). Previously memorized pictures of faces should either be indicated as truthfully trustworthy, truthfully untrustworthy or trustworthy while concealing the actual untrustworthiness (untrustworthy-probe).

Predicting progression and cognitive decline in amyloid-positive patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimers Res Ther 2021 09 6;13(1):151. Epub 2021 Sep 6.

Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Background: In Alzheimer's disease, amyloid- β (A β) peptides aggregate in the lowering CSF amyloid levels - a key pathological hallmark of the disease. However, lowered CSF amyloid levels may also be present in cognitively unimpaired elderly individuals. Therefore, it is of great value to explain the variance in disease progression among patients with A β pathology. Read More

Effects of IPS plus cognitive remediation in early psychosis: 18-month functioning outcomes of a randomized controlled trial.

Schizophr Res 2021 Sep 3;236:115-122. Epub 2021 Sep 3.

Phrenos Center of Expertise, Utrecht, the Netherlands; Tranzo, Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Tilburg University, Tilburg, the Netherlands.

Background: After a first episode of psychosis, cognitive impairments present an important barrier to successful (re-)entry into work and education. We assessed whether cognitive remediation (CR) as an add-on to Individual Placement and Support (IPS) can improve participation in regular employment and education.

The Bidirectional Link Between Sleep Disturbances and Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms: A Role for Glymphatic Dysfunction?

Biol Psychiatry 2021 Jul 14. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Departments of Neurology, Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, and Department of Medicine - Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon; Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon; Neurology Service and National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research, Veterans Affairs Portland Health Care System, Portland, Oregon. Electronic address:

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), often referred to as concussion, is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Sleep disturbances are common after mTBI. Moreover, subjects who develop subjective sleep complaints after mTBI also report more severe somatic, mental health, and cognitive impairment and take longer to recover from mTBI sequelae.

The longitudinal associations between change in physical activity and cognitive functioning in older adults with chronic illness (es).

BMC Geriatr 2021 09 4;21(1):478. Epub 2021 Sep 4.

Faculty of Psychology, Open University of the Netherlands, 6419 AT, Heerlen, the Netherlands.

Background: Regular physical activity (PA) is potentially beneficial for age-related cognitive decline. Although moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is mostly advised, older adults with chronic illnesses might benefit more from light physical activity (LPA), as they suffer from mobility problems, pain, and fatigue, limiting high-intensity PA. Therefore, the longitudinal association between change in LPA and MVPA and the change in cognitive functioning (CF) is investigated in older adults with chronic illnesses. Read More
