Assessment of baroreceptor reflex sensitivity by means of spectral analysis.
A method of determining baroreceptor reflex sensitivity is proposed that is based on spectral analysis of systolic pressure values and RR interval times, namely, the modulus (or gain) in the mid
Heart Beat Perception in Patients with Depressive, Somatoform, and Personality Disorders
TLDR
In this study, heart beat perception was assessed for subgroups of psychosomatic disorders and in comparison to healthy controls and the detection score of patients with personality disorders was lower compared to patients with functional disor...
The standardized mental stress test protocol: test-retest reliability and comparison with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.
TLDR
Blood pressures taken during the stress tests were more highly correlated with the average blood pressures measured via ambulatory monitoring than casual office pressures, suggesting that such stress values may more accurately reflect average blood pressure.
Static and dynamic body image in bulimia nervosa: mental representation of body dimensions and biological motion patterns.
TLDR
Not only did participants with bulimia nervosa overestimate their own body dimensions, but also they perceived their own motion patterns corresponding to a higher BMI than did controls.
Emotion recognition, emotional awareness and cognitive bias in individuals with bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
Problems with emotional self-awareness suggest a cognitive-affective disturbance in emotion recognition, and the question of a cognitive bias is addressed when interpreting facially expressed emotions.
Construct Validity of the Anxiety Sensitivity Index–3 in Clinical Samples
TLDR
The ASI-3 successfully discriminated patients with anxiety disorders from patients with nonanxiety disorders, and correlations of the ASi-3 scales with other measures of clinical symptoms and negative affect substantiated convergent and discriminant validity.
Effectiveness of systematic treatment selection for psychodynamic and cognitive–behavioural therapy: randomised controlled trial in routine mental healthcare
TLDR
There was a differential effect: systematic selection resulted in a better longer-term outcome for PDT, but not for CBT; STS– PDT patients showed a significantly larger reduction in symptom severity than RTS–PDT patients, and this difference was not observed in CBT.
Differences in the Nature of Body Image Disturbances Between Female Obese Individuals With Versus Without a Comorbid Binge Eating Disorder: An Exploratory Study Including Static and Dynamic Aspects
TLDR
There were some significant differences between the groups suggesting that a comorbid BED causes further aggravation, and body image interventions in obesity treatment may be warranted.
Why Reassurance Fails in Patients with Unexplained Symptoms—An Experimental Investigation of Remembered Probabilities
TLDR
Physicians should be aware that patients with medically unexplained symptoms recall the likelihood of medical causes for their complaints incorrectly, and should verify correct understanding by using check-back questions and asking for summaries, to improve the effect of reassurance.
