Fibrosis stage is the strongest predictor for disease‐specific mortality in NAFLD after up to 33 years of follow‐up
TLDR
NAFLD patients have increased risk of death, with a high risk ofdeath from cardiovascular disease and liver‐related disease, and the NAS was not able to predict overall mortality, whereas fibrosis stage predicted both overall and disease‐specific mortality.
Social phobia in the general population: prevalence and sociodemographic profile
TLDR
Although the exact diagnostic boundaries for social phobia are difficult to determine, it can be concluded that social anxiety is a distressing problem for a considerable proportion of the general population.
Common changes in cerebral blood flow in patients with social phobia treated with citalopram or cognitive-behavioral therapy.
TLDR
Improvement in symptoms with citalopram and cognitive-behavioral therapy was accompanied by a decreased rCBF-response to public speaking bilaterally in the amygdala, hippocampus, and the periamygdaloid, rhinal, and parahippocampal cortices, confirmed by between-group comparisons.
Cerebral blood flow in subjects with social phobia during stressful speaking tasks: a PET study.
TLDR
The functional neuroanatomy of social phobia involves the activation of a phylogenetically older danger-recognition system as indicated by an rCBF pattern of relatively increased cortical rather than subcortical perfusion, indicating that cortical evaluative processes were taxed by public performance.
Disruption of Reconsolidation Erases a Fear Memory Trace in the Human Amygdala
TLDR
As previously demonstrated in rodents, fear memory suppression resulting from behavioral disruption of reconsolidation is amygdala-dependent also in humans, which supports an evolutionarily conserved memory-update mechanism.
