Early brain development can be influenced by numerous genetic and environmental factors, with long-lasting effects on brain function and behavior. The identification of these factors is facilitated by recent innovations in high-throughput screening. However, large-scale screening in whole organisms remains challenging, in particular when studying changes in(More)
BACKGROUND We present a retrospective study examining response to treatment with fibrates or statins in schizophrenia patients. METHODS We identified the patient population using the Research Patient Data Registry. Demographic data, total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C),(More)
RATIONALE Sedation is a common side effect of clozapine treatment and may exacerbate metabolic consequences of poor diet and exercise habits that are common in patients with schizophrenia. Modafinil has been proposed as a treatment for clozapine-induced sedation and metabolic abnormalities. OBJECTIVE To estimate the effect sizes and person-to-person(More)
The medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and its output area, the nucleus accumbens (NAc), are implicated in mediating attentional set-shifting. Patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) exhibit difficulties in the disengagement of attention from traumatic cues, which is associated with impairments in set-shifting ability. However, unknown is whether(More)
Nanomaterials such as iron oxides and ferrites have been intensively investigated for water treatment and environmental remediation applications. In this work, hollow α-Fe2O3 nanofibers made of rice-like nanorods were successfully synthesized via a simple hydrothermal reaction on polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanofiber template followed by calcination. The(More)
Deficits in behavioral flexibility and recognition memory are commonly observed in mental illnesses and neurodegenerative diseases. Abnormality of the striatum has been implicated in an association with the pathology of these diseases. However, the exact roles of striatal heterogeneous structures in these cognitive functions are still unknown. In the(More)
The inability to stop a repetitive maladaptive behavior is a main problem in addictive disorders. Neuroadaptations that are associated with behavioral inflexibility may be involved in compulsive drug use. The aim of the present study was to investigate the pattern of behavioral inflexibility during morphine withdrawal and map brain activation that is linked(More)
BACKGROUND The potential for academic community partnerships are challenged in places where there is a history of conflict and mistrust. Addressing Disparities in Asian Populations through Translational Research (ADAPT) represents an academic community partnership between researchers and clinicians from Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University and(More)
