Christman, Taylor article published in Translational Psychiatry

Fourth-year resident in General Psychiatry Seth Christman, MD, and James G Blakemore Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Warren Taylor, MD, MHSc, recently published the article "Accelerated brain aging predicts impaired cognitive performance and greater disability in geriatric but not midlife adult depression" in the journal Translational Psychiatry.

Normal brain aging patterns occur at a faster rate in people with psychosis

Patients with psychosis have accelerated aging of two brain networks important for general cognition -- the frontoparietal network (FPN) and cingulo-opercular network (CON) -- according to a new study in Biological Psychiatry. Efficiency of the FPN network was normal in early psychosis but reduced in chronic patients, indicating that the decline happens after illness onset.

Cascio study referenced in Lainhart brain imaging research review

A recent study conducted by Carissa Cascio, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, was named as an "article of special interest" in a review by Janet Lainhart titled "Brain imaging research in autism spectrum disorders: in search of neuropathology and health across the lifespan." The review is published in the March 2015 issue of Current Opinion in Psychiatry. Among Lainhart's sources was Cascio's paper "Affective neural response to restricted interests in autism spectrum disorders." This artic
