Natural brain opioids may be better to treat anxiety
Boosting natural brain opioids may be a better way to treat disabling emotions, says new research revealing their role in regulating critical brain circuits affecting fear and anxiety. Published in Nature Communications by University of Sydney scholars, the findings suggest medications that boost the effect of natural brain opioids might be a better way to reduce anxiety than 'receptor-binding' opioid drugs like morphine, which have major side effects.

Personalised wearable can help autistic adults manage anxiety

Personalised wearable can help autistic adults manage anxiety
Reflecting back on incidents can help people manage their anxiety. However, since traditional reflection aids such as written diaries are often abandoned, wearable technology could provide the solution. Human computer interaction specialists at Lancaster University have worked with adults diagnosed with autism to create prototype personalised wristband devices called Snap that enable wearers to digitally record data when they are feeling anxious.

PET imaging may help diagnosis of depression

  Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Life Science Technology (CLST) in Japan have used a non-invasive PET scanning technique to obtain images of neuron proliferation in the subventricular zone and subgranular zone of the hippocampal dentate gyrus. Neurogenesis in the hippocampal dentate gyrus is known to be particularly affected by depression.

Imaging tool will be applied to common brain disorders

Imaging tool will be applied to common brain disorders
A Yale-led team of researchers developed a new approach to scanning the brain for changes in synapses that are associated with common brain disorders. The technique may provide insights into the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of disorders, including epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. The study was published in Science Translational Medicine. Certain changes in synapses—the junctions between nerve cells in the brain—have been linked with brain disorders.

Electric patch promises treatment for PTSD
An average of 30 years had passed since the traumatic events that had left them depressed, anxious, irritable, hypervigilant, unable to sleep well and prone to nightmares. But for 12 people who were involved in a UCLA-led study - survivors of rape, car accidents, domestic abuse and other traumas -- an unobtrusive patch on the forehead provided considerable relief from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Virtual Reality could improve the treatment of depression

Virtual Reality could improve the treatment of depression
A complex and poorly understood condition, depression often goes hand-in-hand with excessive self-criticism, which represents a major obstacle to recovery. Having confidence about yourself could therefore help instigate long-term change, altering negative thought patterns that contribute to the maintenance of low moods. And that’s what researchers at University College London and ICREA-University of Barcelona hope to achieve with virtual reality (VR).
