Childhood trauma linked to impaired social cognition later in life for patients with major psychiatric disorders

A new report published in European Psychiatry identified a significant association between childhood adversity and impaired social cognitive functioning among adults diagnosed with major psychiatric disorders. Through a comprehensive review of all research conducted to date, the investigators established that a traumatic early social environment frequently leads to social cognitive problems and greater illness severity for individuals with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, major depressive disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder. "Early childhood neglect, abuse, and/or trauma puts patients at greater risk for developing cognitive impairments that will later affect social perception and interaction, a core aspect of disability in...

Cornell review finds academic misconduct by food researcher

Cornell says a prominent professor of food research has resigned after an investigation found he committed academic misconduct. The school says Brian Wansink will retire at the end of the school year next June and that he has been removed from his teaching positions. Thursday's announcement comes a day after a medical journal retracted six of Wansink's papers. The JAMA network of journals retracted the papers Wednesday, saying the research couldn't be verified. In response, Wansink said he was proud of the papers and was confident they'll be replicated by other groups. Several of his other papers had been retracted...

Sofia Sanchez, girl surprised by Drake at hospital, talks about recovery from heart transplant

Eleven-year-old Sofia Sanchez stole America's hearts last month when she did the "Kiki challenge" in the hospital while she awaited a heart transplant. The video of Sanchez dancing to Drake's "In My Feelings" while she was attached to an IV went viral and even the rapper was moved by her story. Drake visited the vivacious fifth grader at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. Now, Sanchez is sharing a new update about her life.Sanchez underwent a 9-hour heart transplant operation three weeks ago and is now recovering at the Ronald McDonald House. With a big grin on her face, the girl...

We all carry a personal cloud of germs, chemicals

(HealthDay)—You might feel squeaky clean after that morning shower, but you carry an invisible cloud of bacteria, viruses, fungi and chemicals every day. That's one of the lessons from the first study to take a deep dive into the human "exposome"—the collection of microbes, plant particles and chemicals that accompanies people as they move through the world. In fact, if your personal exposome was visible to the naked eye, the researchers said, you'd look like the "Peanuts" character Pig-Pen. In the study, a small group of volunteers wore monitors with a special filter that trapped particles from the air around...

Genomic dark matter activity connects Parkinson's and psychiatric diseases

Dopamine neurons are located in the midbrain, but their tendril-like axons can branch far into the higher cortical areas, influencing how we move and how we feel. New genetic evidence has revealed that these specialized cells may also have far-reaching effects, implicating them in conditions that range from Parkinson's disease to schizophrenia. Using a new technique known as laser-capture RNA seq, that involves cutting out dopamine neurons from a human brain section with a laser, investigators from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School have cataloged more than 70,000 novel elements active in these brain cells. Their results are...

New evidence for coordinated hedgehog and Wnt pathway activation in appendage regeneration

Researchers have made a significant new discovery concerning the signaling mechanisms that enable newts to regrow their tails after injury. Specifically, this process is shown to require the coordinated activation of the Hedgehog (Hh) and Wnt pathways. The study is published in Stem Cells and Development. Mary G. Garry, Daniel J. Garry, and colleagues from the University of Minnesota present their work in a paper titled "Hedgehog and Wnt signaling pathways regulate tail regeneration". Previous studies have characterized the ability of certain organisms to regenerate appendages morphologically and identified some of the pathways involved, but precise mechanistic detail has been...

Affordable Care Act: Study finds surprising gaps in HIV care providers' knowledge

A new study has revealed surprising gaps in some HIV medical providers' knowledge of the Affordable Care Act, with more than a quarter of providers surveyed unable to say whether their state had expanded Medicaid. The national survey also sought to better understand the healthcare providers' views on the effects of the ACA. Providers in that expanded Medicaid were more likely to believe that the law would improve HIV outcomes, the study found. However, providers in all states agreed that the law would improve healthcare outcomes in general for their HIV patients. "These findings demonstrate gaps in HIV medical providers'...
