Regular gaming behavior and internet gaming disorder in European adolescents: results from a cross-national representative survey of prevalence, predictors, and psychopathological correlates
This survey demonstrated that IGD is a frequently occurring phenomenon among European adolescents and is related to psychosocial problems, and the need for youth-specific prevention and treatment programs becomes evident. Expand
Loneliness in the general population: prevalence, determinants and relations to mental health
The findings support the view that loneliness poses a significant health problem for a sizeable part of the population with increased risks in terms of distress (depression, anxiety), suicidal ideation, health behavior and health care utilization. Expand
Neural substrates of the interaction of emotional stimulus processing and motor inhibitory control: An emotional linguistic go/no-go fMRI study
An emotional linguistic go/no-go fMRI paradigm with a factorial block design which joins explicit inhibitory task demand with task-unrelated incidental emotional stimulus valence manipulation is developed, to probe the modulation of the former by the latter. Expand
Psychodynamic therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy in social anxiety disorder: a multicenter randomized controlled trial.
CBT and psychodynamic therapy were both efficacious in treating social anxiety disorder, but there were significant differences in favor of CBT. Expand
Similarities and differences in couples' grief reactions following a miscarriage: results from a longitudinal study.
Compared to commonly held beliefs, men do grieve, but less intensely and enduringly than their partners, and the manner in which they experience their grief is similar to that of the women, except that the men cry less and feel less need to talk about it. Expand

Temperament and personality: the German version of the Adult Temperament Questionnaire (ATQ)
A German version of the short form of the Adult Temperament Questionnaire (ATQ) by Rothbart is validated, finding a consistent pattern of correlation to personality and interpersonal problems, where negative affect strongly correlated with neuroticism; effortful control correlated with conscientiousness, orienting sensitivity with openness, and extraversion correlated with the corresponding scale of the NEO-FFI.

Failure of frontolimbic inhibitory function in the context of negative emotion in borderline personality disorder.
Findings suggest specific frontolimbic neural substrates associated with core clinical features of emotional and behavioral dyscontrol in borderline personality disorder. Expand
