Emotion in criminal offenders with psychopathy and borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The results support the theory that psychopaths are characterized by a pronounced lack of fear in response to aversive events and suggest a general deficit in processing affective information, regardless of whether stimuli are negative or positive.
Impaired cognitive performance in drug free users of recreational ecstasy (MDMA)
TLDR
The data suggest that even typical recreational doses of ecstasy are sufficient to cause neurotoxicity in humans, and raise concern that use of ecstasy possibly in conjunction with cannabis may lead to cognitive decline in otherwise healthy young people.
Relapse prevention by acamprosate. Results from a placebo-controlled study on alcohol dependence.
TLDR
Acamprosate proved to be a safe and effective aid in treating alcohol-dependent patients and in maintaining the abstinence of patients during 2 years.
Psychopathological, neuroendocrine and autonomic effects of 3,4-methylenedioxyethylamphetamine (MDE), psilocybin and d-methamphetamine in healthy volunteers Results of an experimental double-blind
TLDR
The view that entactogens constitute a distinct psychoactive substance class taking an intermediate position between hallucinogens and stimulants is supported, and is in line with both users’ reports and results from previous experimental studies.
Affective responsiveness in borderline personality disorder: a psychophysiological approach.
TLDR
The results do not agree with the hypothesis that there is a fundamental, biologically based affective hyperresponsiveness in borderline personality disorder, as is suggested by current theories of affect dysregulation in the disorder.
Psychophysiological responses in ADHD boys with and without conduct disorder: implications for adult antisocial behavior.
TLDR
Boys with ADHD+CD show a psychophysiological response pattern that is very similar to that reported in antisocial personalities, giving further support for a high persistence of antisocial behavior from childhood to adulthood.
