Effects of Oral Contraceptive Androgenicity on Visuospatial and Social-Emotional Cognition: A Prospective Observational Trial

Authors: Gurvich C, Hudaib AR, Kulkarni J.Gurvich C, Thomas N, Warren AM, Worsley R

Journal: Brain Sciences

Oral contraceptives (OCs) containing estrogen and progesterone analogues are widely used amongst reproductive-aged women, but their neurocognitive impact is poorly understood. Preliminary studies suggest that OCs improve verbal memory and that OCs with greater androgenic activity […]

Background: This study examines cognitive functioning in adults born across the range of prematurity with appropriate or small for gestational age (SGA) birth weight compared with full-term controls. Methods: ESTER Preterm Birth Study participants without severe […]

Sex Differences in Verbal Memory Predict Functioning Through Negative Symptoms in Early Psychosis

Authors: Ashok Malla, Carolina Makowski, Gabriella Buck, Katie M Lavigne, Martin Lepage, Ridha Joober

Journal: Schizophrenia Bulletin

Abstract Verbal memory (VM) is one of the most affected cognitive domains in first-episode psychosis (FEP) and is a robust predictor of functioning. Given that healthy females demonstrate superior VM relative to males and that female […]

Relation between retinal vascular abnormalities and working memory impairment in patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Authors: Appaji A, Berendschot TTJM, Chako DM, Hiremath CV, Jacob A, Kesavan M, Nagendra B, Padmanabha A, Rao NP, Rao SV, Varambally S, Venkatasubramanian G, Webers CAB

Journal: Asian journal of psychiatry

Emerging evidence indicates abnormal retinal micro-vasculature in schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar disorder (BD) and its relation to cognitive functions. However, the association of these abnormalities with the cognitive deficits in these disorders has not been examined till date.

Associations of Apolipoprotein E ε4 Genotype and Ball Heading With Verbal Memory in Amateur Soccer Players.

Authors: Davies P, Freudenberg-Hua Y, Hu S, Hunter LE, Kim M, Lipton ML, Lipton RB, Srinivasan P, Stewart WF

Journal: JAMA Neurology

Importance: Emerging evidence suggests that long-term exposure to ball heading in soccer, the most popular sport in the world, confers risk for adverse cognitive outcomes. However, the extent to which the apolipoprotein E ε4 (APOE ε4) […]

C-reactive protein and response to lurasidone treatment in children and adolescents with bipolar I depression: Results from a placebo-controlled trial.

Authors: Loebel A, Pikalov A, Raison CL, Siu C, Tocco M

Journal: Brain behavior and immunity

This study sought to investigate associations between levels of high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hsCRP) prior to treatment and change in depressive symptoms and cognition in a short-term, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of lurasidone in children and adolescents with […]

Effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on cognition and symptoms in Chinese patients with schizophrenia.

Authors: Davis JM, Faull R, Jiang J, Jin H, Li C, Md WL, Smith RC, Szabo V, Wang J, Wang Y

Journal: Psychiatry Research

There is preliminary evidence that transcranial direct current stimulation(tDCS) may improve symptoms and cognitive function in schizophrenia, but the generalizability of these results needs further investigation. We present a study of the effects of active vs. […]

The impact of chemotherapy on cognitive function: a multicentre prospective cohort study in testicular cancer.

Authors: Davis ID, Grimison P, Kalinowski P, Martin A, Maruff P, Olver IN, Schembri A, Stockler M, Toner GC, Whitford HS

Journal: Supportive care in cancer : official journal of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer

Purpose: The causal link between chemotherapy and cognitive impairment is unclear. We studied testicular cancer patients’ objective and subjective cognitive function longitudinally, comparing a surgery group with a surgery + chemotherapy group, addressing prior methodological issues […]

Computerized neuropsychological assessment devices in multiple sclerosis: A systematic review.

Authors: Beier M, Benedict RH, Costello K, DeLuca J, Feinstein A, Goverover Y, Gudesblatt M, Jaworski M 3rd, Kalb R, Kostich L, LaRocca NG, Rodgers JD, Wojcik CM

Journal: Multiple sclerosis : Clinical and Laboratory Research

BACKGROUND: The proliferation of computerized neuropsychological assessment devices (CNADs) for screening and monitoring cognitive impairment is increasing exponentially. Previous reviews of computerized tests for multiple sclerosis (MS) were primarily qualitative and did not rigorously compare CNADs […]

Greater Circulating Copper Concentrations and Copper/Zinc Ratios are Associated with Lower Psychological Distress, But Not Cognitive Performance, in a Sample of Australian Older Adults.

Authors: Cardoso BR, Daly RM, Formica M, Gianoudis J, Mravunac M, Nowson CA, O'Connell SL, Roberts BR, Szymlek-Gay EA

Journal: Nutrients

Dyshomeostasis of copper and zinc is linked to neurodegeneration. This study investigated the relationship between circulating copper and zinc and copper/zinc ratios and cognitive function, symptoms of depression and anxiety, and neurotrophic factors in older Australian […]
