Many people with depression do not receive adequate medical
treatment, and even if they are treated, doctors may not be
paying enough attention to their patients' needs.
Solution-based therapy does not attempt to treat patients by
focusing on problems and their causes, but works toward specific
goals by getting patients to examine and change their behavior.
Once referred to simply as "road rage," intermittent explosive
disorder is now more fully defined. It is thought to be caused by
irregular activity of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
A study suggests that the three primary chracteristics of autism
are not linked but are inherited separately, meaning different
genes would be responsible for different behaviors.
Drug addicts have a higher death rate than the general
population, but not necessarily due to their substance abuse. A
study suggests addicts have more serious psychiatric problems
that lead to increased mortality.
Alzheimer's patients showed a decrease in the placebo response
(the anticipation of relief from pain) due to diminished activity
in the cerebral cortex, meaning any treatment given is likely to
be less effective.
