    Isoform-specific roles for AKT in affective behavior, spatial memory, and extinction related to psychiatric disorders

    Helen Wong et al.
    Murine behavioral testing and biochemical experiments reveal AKT isoform- and sex-dependent mechanisms regulating affective behavior, memory formation, and extinction.

    Exercise promotes the expression of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) through the action of the ketone body β-hydroxybutyrate

    Sama F Sleiman et al.
    A potential link between metabolic changes resulting from exercise and gene expression in the brain has been revealed.

    Risk of motor vehicle collisions after methadone use

    Ya-Hui Yang et al.
    Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) can alleviate opioid dependence, however, drivers receiving MMT were at high risk of motor vehicle collisions in the present study, particularly the first 90 days of MMT.

    Antidepressants: Where ketamine and dopamine collide

    David J Marcus, Michael R Bruchas
    Ketamine strengthens connections between two brain regions that are involved in the production and regulation of dopamine, which may explain how the drug can alleviate depression.

    Forniceal deep brain stimulation induces gene expression and splicing changes that promote neurogenesis and plasticity

    Amy E Pohodich et al.
    Forniceal deep brain stimulation is a promising treatment for several neuropsychiatric disorders as it upregulates synaptic and neurogenesis-associated genes, normalizes genes misregulated in Rett syndrome mice, and regulates genes altered in intellectual disability and major depression.

    Psychomotor impairments and therapeutic implications revealed by a mutation associated with infantile Parkinsonism-Dystonia

    Jenny I Aguilar et al.
    A dopamine transporter deficiency syndrome (DTDS)-linked mutation, R445C, underlies dopamine dysfunction and, more broadly, the clinical phenotypes shared by DTDS and Parkinson’s disease.

    Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibition reduces stress-induced affective pathology

    Joyonna Carrie Gamble-George et al.
    Mechanistically distinct COX-2 inhibitors reduce stress-induced behavioral pathology via unique multimodal molecular mechanisms, and could be used to treat mood disorders.

    Dorsal raphe nucleus to anterior cingulate cortex 5-HTergic neural circuit modulates consolation and sociability

    Laifu Li et al.
    Inhibition of 5-HT neurons in the dorsal raphe nuclei or 5-HT terminals in the anterior cingulate cortex decreased consolation-like behaviors and reduced sociability.

    An integrative study of five biological clocks in somatic and mental health

    Rick Jansen et al.
    An integrative study of five biological clocks in somatic and mental health indicate that one's biological age is best reflected by combining aging measures from multiple cellular levels.

    Self-blinding citizen science to explore psychedelic microdosing

    Balázs Szigeti et al.
    The anecdotally reported benefits of psychedelics microdosing can be explained by the placebo effect.
