The Psychobiology of Childhood Temperament

Objectives: The goal of this proposal is to study temperament and risk-taking as vulnerability factors for anxiety. Studies have documented that behaviorally inhibited (BI) children are at risk for anxiety disorders. This vulnerability may be associated with neural circuits underlying behavioral tendencies, such as components of the prefrontal cortex (PFC), ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Trial of Fluoxetine in Anxiety and Depression in Children and Associated Brain Changes

Objective: This protocol uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine neuro-cognitive correlates of pediatric and adult mood and anxiety disorders. The primary goal of the project is to document, in pediatric anxiety disorders and major depression, perturbations in brain systems mediating attention biases, fear conditioning, emotional memory, and response ...

Phase N/A

Mindful Hearts Study

Evidence demonstrates that chronic stress doubles the risk of myocardial infarction and contributes to proinflammatory processes implicated in coronary artery disease and stroke. Veterans who have experienced combat are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to noncombat Veterans and non-Veterans. However, previous research has focused primarily on male ...

Phase N/A

Mechanism of Antidepressant-Related Dysfunctional Arousal in High-Risk Youth

The primary goals of this proposal are to investigate the etiological mechanisms associated with antidepressant-related dysfunctional emotional arousal and to characterize baseline neurobiological risk factors that predict the development of dysfunctional emotional arousal in treatment seeking youth with a family history of BD. Antidepressants have moderate benefit for treating mood ...

Phase N/A

Family Study of Affective and Anxiety Spectrum Disorders

Objective: The chief goal of this study is to identify the endophenotypes of the spectrum of mood disorders using the methods of genetic epidemiology, developmental psychopathology and clinical psychiatry/psychology. The major research questions focus on the specificity of familial transmission of the mood disorder spectrum (i.e., symptoms, symptom clusters, subtypes) ...

Phase N/A

Development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Techniques for Studying Mood and Anxiety Disorders

A major component of understanding the pathogenesis of mood and anxiety disorders is expected to involve elucidation of abnormalities of brain structure and function associated with these conditions. Historically, post-mortem histopathological and neurochemical assessments constituted the primary methods for investigating abnormalities of brain structure and function in psychiatric disorders. However, ...

Phase N/A

Acupuncture Treatment in Adults Undergoing Diagnostic OGD : A Double-Blind Placebo Controlled Randomized Trial

Acupuncture is being used as one part of Chinese medicine for more than 2,500 years in treating diseases. Recent functional magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated that acupuncture can suppress the “pain” area in the brain so as to reduce the pain that felt by human subjects. Western medicine proposed the acupuncture ...

Phase N/A

Costs of Lost Productive Time Among Korean Workers With Panic Disorder and Effect of Treatment With Paroxetine Controlled Release

Panic disorder(PD)is a disabling psychiatric condition associated with significant impairment in psychosocial, occupational functioning and quality of life, as mentioned by mogotsi et al. So, most patients with panic disorder suffers from the consequences of the impairment in occupational function. This impairment is not only individual problem, but also social ...

Phase

A Study of the Effectiveness of Virtual Reality Relaxation Combined With Patient-Controlled Analgesia (PCA) Morphine for Those Undergoing Burn Dressing Changes

Pain associated with burn dressing changes does not arise purely from a physical source; it is also commonly influenced by psychological factors. The anticipation that accompanies a dressing change has the potential to set up fear and heightened anxiety as the patient is aware that at a predetermined time other ...

Phase N/A

Panic Disorder and Cardiac Risk

The reason for increased cardiac mortality in panic disorder has not been precisely identified, but possibly is due to chronic activation of the cardiac stimulant (sympathetic) nerves, which may predispose the individual with panic disorder to disorders of cardiac rhythm and coronary artery spasm. The uniqueness of this study lies ...
