PTSD May Be Physical and Not Only Psychological

The part of the brain that helps control emotion may be larger in people who develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after brain injury compared to those with a brain injury without PTSD, according to a study released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s Sports Concussion Conference in Jacksonville, Fla., July 14 to 16, 2017.

Faster Diagnosis of Inherited and Lethal Nerve Disease Could Advance Search for New Treatments

Control2.jpg

Johns Hopkins physicians report success in a small study of a modified skin biopsy that hastens the earlier diagnosis of an inherited and progressively fatal nerve disease and seems to offer a clearer view of the disorder’s severity and progression. With a quicker and less invasive way to visualize the hallmark protein clumps of the rare but lethal disease — familial transthyretin amyloidosis — the researchers say they hope to more rapidly advance clinical trials of treatments that may slow the disease and extend patients’ lives.

JFK’s Back Problems—A New Look

JFK promoted an image of himself as a young, healthy, strong-bodied man. But this image belies the truth: that Kennedy’s life was plagued by illnesses and he required strong medication to perform his tasks as president. This paper sheds light on JFK’s back problems and how they affected his life.

Brain Responds Differently to Food Rewards in Bulimia Nervosa

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have discovered differences in how the brain responds to food rewards in individuals with a history of bulimia nervosa (BN), an eating disorder characterized by frequent episodes of binge eating followed by efforts of purging to avoid weight gain. The findings further define specific brain mechanisms involved in eating disorders and could help lead to new treatment therapies.
