Authors: Tianzhen Chen, Hang Su, Haifeng Jiang, Xiaotong Li, Na Zhong, Jiang Du, Yiran Meng, Chunmei Duan, Congbin Zhang, Ke Xiao, Ding Xu, Weidong Song, Min Zhao

Journal: Journal of Psychiatric Research

Year Published: 2020

Background and aims: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) can effectively reduce cravings in methamphetamine use disorder (MUD). However, a considerable group still fails to respond. Cognitive and emotional disturbance, […]

Authors: Michael L Alosco, Yorghos Tripodis, Zachary H Baucom, Jesse Mez, Thor D Stein, Brett Martin, Olivia Haller, Shannon Conneely, Michael McClean, Rachel Nosheny, Scott Mackin, Ann C McKee, Michael W Weiner, Robert A Stern

Journal: Neurology

Year Published: 2020

Objective: To test the hypothesis that repetitive head impacts (RHIs), like those from contact sport play and traumatic brain injury (TBI) have long-term neuropsychiatric and cognitive consequences, we compared middle-age and older adult participants who reported […]

Neurocognitive performance of repeated versus single intravenous subanesthetic ketamine in treatment resistant depression

Authors: Paulo R Shiroma, Paul Thuras, Joseph Wels, C Sophia Albott, Christopher Erbes, Susannah Tye, Kelvin O Lim

Journal: Journal of Affective Disorders

Year Published: 2020

Background: Ketamine demonstrated rapid antidepressant effects in treatment-resistant depression (TRD). However, evaluation of ketamine’s neurocognitive effect in TRD is unclear. We aim to (1) characterize baseline neurocognitive performance as a predictor of the change in severity […]

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

Authors: Hayley S. Whitford, Pawel Kalinowski, Adrian Schembri, Peter Grimison, Martin Stockler, Andrew Martin, Guy C. Toner, Ian D. Davis, Paul Maruff, Ian N. Olver, For the Australian and New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate Cancer Trials Group

Authors: Kieran J. Marston, Jeremiah J. Peiffer, Stephanie R. Rainey-Smith, Nicole Gordon, Shaun Y. Teo, Simon M. Laws, Hamid R. Sohrabi, Ralph N. Martins, Belinda M. Brown

Journal: Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport

Year Published: 2019

Objectives: High-intensity exercise is a potential therapeutic tool to postpone or prevent the onset of cognitive decline. However, there is a lack of sufficient evidence regarding the longitudinal effects of structured resistance training on cognitive function […]
