Emotion modulation in PTSD: Clinical and neurobiological evidence for a dissociative subtype.
TLDR
The neural manifestations of the dissociative subtype in PTSD are compared to those underlying the reexperiencing/hyperaroused subtype and have important implications for treatment of PTSD, including the need to assess patients with PTSD for Dissociative symptoms and to incorporate the treatment of dissociatives symptoms into stage-oriented trauma treatment.

Breast Cancer as Trauma: Posttraumatic Stress and Posttraumatic Growth
Diagnosis and treatment of cancer has been associated with both posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and posttraumatic growth (PTG). This cross-sectional study sought to assess theExpand
Diurnal cortisol rhythm as a predictor of breast cancer survival.
TLDR
Patients with metastatic breast cancer whose diurnal cortisol rhythms were flattened or abnormal had earlier mortality, and suppression of NK cell count and NK function may be a mediator or a marker of more rapid disease progression. Expand
EFFECT OF PSYCHOSOCIAL TREATMENT ON SURVIVAL OF PATIENTS WITH METASTATIC BREAST CANCER
TLDR
The effect of psychosocial intervention on time of survival of 86 patients with metastatic breast cancer was studied prospectively and survival plots indicated that divergence in survival began at 20 months after entry, or 8 months after intervention ended. Expand
Loneliness within a nomological net: An evolutionary perspective
Loneliness is characterized by feelings of social pain and isolation and has both heritable and unshared environmental underpinnings. An evolutionary theory of loneliness is outlined, and fourExpand
Evaluation of the evidence for the trauma and fantasy models of dissociation.
TLDR
There is strong empirical support for the hypothesis that trauma causes dissociation, and that dissociation remains related to trauma history when fantasy proneness is controlled, and little support is found for the hypotheses that the dissociation-trauma relationship is due toantasy proneness or confabulated memories of trauma. Expand
Supportive-expressive group therapy and distress in patients with metastatic breast cancer: a randomized clinical intervention trial.
TLDR
Supportive-expressive therapy, with its emphasis on providing support and helping patients face and deal with their disease-related stress, can help reduce distress in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Expand
Lonely traits and concomitant physiological processes: the MacArthur social neuroscience studies.
TLDR
Satisfying social relationships were associated with more positive outlooks on life, more secure attachments and interactions with others, more autonomic activation when confronting acute psychological challenges, and more efficient restorative behaviors. Expand
Mood Disorders in the Medically Ill: Scientific Review and Recommendations
TLDR
A growing body of evidence suggests that biological mechanisms underlie a bidirectional link between mood disorders and many medical illnesses and there is evidence to suggest that mood disorders affect the course of medical illnesses. Expand
Hypnotic visual illusion alters color processing in the brain.
TLDR
Observed changes in subjective experience achieved during hypnosis were reflected by changes in brain function similar to those that occur in perception, supporting the claim that hypnosis is a psychological state with distinct neural correlates and is not just the result of adopting a role. Expand
