A solitary or cumulative diagnosis(es) of Major Depressive Episode (current), Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Illness Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, and/or Adjustment disorder will be determined using modules from the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for DSM-5. Depression and anxiety levels with be measured via the total score of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale (HADS-T), the primary outcome measure. Secondary measures will include the Kessler 10 to measure general distress, the Fear of Cancer Recurrence Inventory (FCRI) to measure the specific fear of cancer recurrence and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy, General Version 4 (FACT-G) for self-report of physical, social, emotional and functional well-being. iCBT participants will complete the measures before lessons 1 and 5, at post-treatment and at 3-month follow-up. The TAU group will complete similar measures at weeks 1, 8 and 16 of the waiting period. Program efficacy will be determined using intent-to-treat mixed models. Maintenance of gains will be assessed at 3-month follow-up. Mediation analyses using PROCESS will be used to examine the association between change in depressive and anxious symptoms over time and changes in FCRI and FACT-G QOL in separate analysis. Discussion: This is the first RCT looking at iCBT specifically for clinical depression and/or anxiety in a cancer population. Findings will help to direct the role of iCBT in streamlined psycho-social care pathways.

No SNPs achieved genome-wide significance either in the MDD2000+ study, or in meta-analysis with two other studies totaling 5763 cases and 6901 controls. These results imply that common variants of intermediate or large effect do not have main effects in the genetic architecture of MDD. Suggestive but notable results were (a) gene-based tests suggesting roles for adenylate cyclase 3 (ADCY3, 2p23.3) and galanin (GAL, 11q13.3); published functional evidence relates both of these to MDD and serotonergic signaling; (b) support for the bipolar disorder risk variant SNP rs1006737 in CACNA1C (P=0.020, odds ratio=1.10); and (c) lack of support for rs2251219, a SNP identified in a meta-analysis of affective disorder studies (P=0.51). We estimate that sample sizes 1.8- to 2.4-fold greater are needed for association studies of MDD compared with those for schizophrenia to detect variants that explain the same proportion of total variance in liability. Larger study cohorts characterized for genetic and environmental risk factors accumulated prospectively are likely to be needed to dissect more fully the etiology of MDD.]]> Tue 23 Jun 2015 14:58:38 AEST ]]> To Sleep, To Dream: Creating diverse representations of depression in speculative fiction for emerging adults Tue 21 Jan 2020 12:28:26 AEST ]]> Depression, Anxiety, and Acculturative Stress Among Resettled Bhutanese Refugees in Australia.

Demographic and clinical characteristics were evaluated through self report and clinical interview. Delayed sleep phase was defined as a sleep onset between the hours of 02:00 a.m. - 06:00 a.m. and the characteristics of this group were compared to normal phase sleepers.Results: Delayed sleep onset was reported amongst 18% (n = 56/305) of the depressed group compared to 11% of the non-depressed young people. Amongst the depressed group, delayed sleep onset was associated with tobacco, alcohol and cannabis misuse and short sleep duration (x{combining overline}: 5.8 hrs vs. x{combining overline}: 7.8 hrs). There were no differences in demographic factors, personality traits or symptoms. Tobacco smoking was very common: In logistic regression analyses only tobacco use (OR 2.28, 95% CI: 1.04 - 5.01) was associated with delayed sleep onset. There was no interaction with age.Conclusions: Delayed sleep onset was twice as common in depressed young people as the general population and young people with other mental health problems, and is a potential marker for a subgroup of mood disorders. Those with delayed sleep onset were not more severely depressed but had short sleep duration, a risk for chronic psychological ill health, and higher levels of tobacco use. Nicotine use was common in this group, has biological evidence as a sleep disrupter, and requires specifically addressing in this population. © 2014 Glozier et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.]]> Thu 09 Nov 2017 13:33:55 AEST ]]> Quantifying the effect of body mass index, age, and depression severity on 24-h activity patterns in persons with a lifetime history of affective disorders Thu 09 Nov 2017 13:19:55 AEST ]]> Mind Games Thu 08 Feb 2018 16:12:26 AEST ]]> Depression and pain in night time and daytime functioning of individuals with lupus Thu 07 Dec 2017 14:22:53 AEST ]]> Correlates of Depression among Older Kurdish Refugees Thu 06 Jul 2017 10:39:07 AEST ]]> Women and depression: making meaning and decisions about electroconvulsive therapy Thu 05 May 2016 09:39:30 AEST ]]> Modality of exercise influences rate of decrease in depression for cancer survivors with elevated depressive symptomatology Thu 05 Apr 2018 14:59:39 AEST ]]> Neuropsychological Trajectories Predict Functional Changes in Young Adults with Early-Stage Schizophrenia, Major Depressive and Bipolar Disorders 0.05). Results: At baseline, clinical subjects were worse on memory and executive measures than HC (p<0.05). There was no significant further decline in any neuropsychological measure at follow-up. Verbal [F(1 86)=8.02, p<0.01] and visuospatial memory [F(1 83)=4.12, p<0.05] improved at follow-up, although group-by-time interactions were not significant (p>0.05). Functional gains were significantly predicted by improved verbal memory (Social Functioning Scale: β=0.37, p<0.01), visuospatial memory (WHODAS-II: β=-0.27, p<0.05), and spatial working memory (SOFAS: β=0.24, p<0.05); these remained significant while controlling for depressive, manic, positive, and negative symptom changes. Symptom changes were not predictive of neuropsychological or functional changes (p>0.05). Conclusions: Early-stage mood and psychotic disorders shared mnemonic and prefrontal-executive deficits, highlighting disruptions to fronto-temporal brain functions spanning traditional diagnostic boundaries. Short-term neuropsychological decline was not evident in stabilised patients with these disorders. Diagnoses did not differentiate neuropsychological trajectories, and symptom alleviation did not predict functional gains. Conversely, neuropsychological improvement was a robust predictor of reductions in realworld disability.]]> Mon 17 Feb 2020 16:41:51 AEST ]]> Stimulating young minds: Investigating a next generation treatment for depression in youth .05).

A total of 68% (n=48) of cases with a lifetime history of depression met criteria for sleep-disturbance. DMN functional connectivity was assessed via ROI-to-ROI analyses. Results: Relative to controls, those with lifetime major depression demonstrated significantly increased functional connectivity between the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and the temporal pole. Within the depression group (n = 48), those with current sleep disturbance had significantly increased connectivity between the anterior medial prefrontal cortex and both the parahippocampal cortex and the hippocampal formation, relative to those without sleep disturbance (n = 23). These results were present after controlling for MCI diagnosis. Conclusions: Current sleep disturbance together with depression is associated with distinct abnormalities in DMN functioning incorporating regions responsible for self-reflection and declarative memory processes. Impaired sleep is associated with increased connectivity between these regions. Future studies may augment these findings with complementary imaging techniques including cortical thickness and diffusion tensor imaging, as well as high density electroencephalogram recording.]]> Fri 07 Feb 2020 13:33:53 AEST ]]> A Graduated Food Addiction Classifications Approach Significantly Differentiates Depression, Anxiety and Stress among People with Type 2 Diabetes Fri 07 Feb 2020 13:27:52 AEST ]]> Childhood adversity impacts on brain subcortical structures relevant to depression Fri 07 Feb 2020 13:13:02 AEST ]]> Accurate, Large-Scale Genotyping of 5HTTLPR and Flanking Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in an Association Study of Depression, Anxiety, and Personality Measures Fri 07 Feb 2020 11:13:46 AEST ]]> Depression: All in Your Head?
