Gale and colleagues investigate whether the risks of death associated with mental disorders diagnosed in young men are similar to the risks associated with hospital admission for these disorders.
Ferrarelli et al assess the natural frequency of the posterior parietal, motor, premotor, and prefrontal cortices in patients with schizophrenia and healthy control subjects.
In a prospective controlled study, Johnson et al examined whether intrauterine antipsychotic exposure is associated with deficits in neuromotor performance and habituation in 6-month-old infants.
Wilhelm et al discuss the efficacy of a comprehensive behavioral intervention for tics in adults with Tourette syndrome of at least moderate severity.
Nichols and coauthors evaluated the interaction between age and the variation in the effect of the apolipoprotein E (APOE) e4 allele on hippocampal function during episodic memory in adults of 2 age groups.
Sebastian and colleagues studied 31 boys with conduct problems and 16 control subjects to broaden understanding of neural processing in conduct problems using an affective-processing task including an empathy component. The study’s goal was also to explore dimensional contributions of conduct problems symptoms and callous-unemotional traits to variance in affective neural responses.
The neural mechanisms of impaired decision-making in hoarding disorder in patients with well-defined primary HD compared with patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and healthy control subjects is examined by Tolin and colleagues.
To determine whether results from structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging are associated with relapse in detoxified alcohol-dependent patients, Beck and coauthors performed a cue-reactivity functional magnetic resonance experiment with alcohol-associated and neutral stimuli.
Howes and coauthors investigate the nature of the dopaminergic dysfunction in schizophrenia using meta-analysis of in vivo studies.
Hartz and coauthors reviewed available genetic studies containing measures of cigarettes per day and the genotype of rs16969968 or its proxy to determine whether the association between rs16969968 and smoking is modified by age at onset of regular smoking.
