Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs
Empirical evidence of shared genetic etiology for psychiatric disorders can inform nosology and encourages the investigation of common pathophysiologies for related disorders. Expand
Beck Depressions-Inventar

Most etiologic theories for depression do not take into account sex differences in depression, and the need for more empirical and longitudinal research is obvious. Expand
Genome-wide association study identifies 30 Loci Associated with Bipolar Disorder
The largest genome-wide association study to date, including 20,352 cases and 31,358 controls of European descent, with follow-up analysis of 881 sentinel variants at loci with P<1×10-4, achieves genome- wide significance including 18 novel loci, which provide potential new biological mechanisms for bipolar disorder. Expand
[The Beck Depression Inventory in clinical practice].
The German version of the Beck Depression Inventory was administered to 477 depressed in- and out-patients, 180 patients with chronic pain and 86 matched healthy control subjects and proved to be a useful psychometric instrument for measuring the intensity of depressive symptoms in clinical samples.

Genome-wide association study reveals two new risk loci for bipolar disorder.
Results from the largest BD GWAS to date are presented by investigating 2.3 million single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a sample of 24,025 patients and controls and detecting 56 genome-wide significant SNPs in five chromosomal regions including previously reported risk loci ANK3, ODZ4 and TRANK1.

[Reliability and validity of the Revised Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II). Results from German samples].
The German BDI-II demonstrates good reliability and validity in clinical and nonclinical samples and may now replace the older version of the BDI for assessing self-rated severity of depression and course of depressed symptoms under treatment. Expand
Genotype–phenotype relationship in female carriers of the premutation and full mutation of FMR-1
It is suggested that social avoidance (expressed as social phobia or avoidant personality disorder) has been underestimated in previous studies of carriers with the FMR-1 full mutation or premutation. Expand
I can see what you feel, but I can't deal with it: Impaired theory of mind in depression.
It is possible that the low level of social functioning associated with depression can be ascribed partially to a ToM deficit and should be addressed in the treatment of depression. Expand
Impulsivity in Binge Eating Disorder: Food Cues Elicit Increased Reward Responses and Disinhibition
Food-related reward sensitivity and rash-spontaneous behaviour, as the two components of impulsivity, are increased in BED in comparison with weight-matched and normal-weight controls, indicating that BED represents a neurobehavioural phenotype of obesity that is characterised by increased impulsivity.
