This project brought together the constructs of goal and emotion regulation as a way of understanding college students' well-being, building on previous work that identified the ability to disengage in goal pursuit and to redirect energy toward alternative goals as an important contributor to well-being. In Study 1, we assessed the amount of variance in(More)

OBJECTIVES Aripiprazole, a novel antipsychotic agent, acts as a partial agonist at dopamine D2 receptors (DRD2). We investigate whether its efficacy is predictable by DRD2/ANKK1 gene polymorphisms and clinical factors in Han Chinese hospitalized patients with acutely exacerbated schizophrenia. METHOD After hospitalization, the patients (n=128) were given(More)
OBJECTIVE Early growth response genes (EGR1, 2, 3, and 4) encode a family of nuclear proteins that function as transcriptional regulators. They are involved in the regulation of synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory, and are implicated in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. METHODS We conducted a genetic association analysis of 14 SNPs selected from(More)
Growing evidence suggests that mood disorder is associated with insulin resistance and inflammation. Thus the effects of antidepressants on insulin sensitivity and proinflammatory responses will be a crucial issue for depression treatment. In this study, we enrolled 43 non-diabetic young depressed males and adapted standard testing procedures to assess(More)
In the rat isolated perfused kidney, arachidonic acid elicits cyclooxygenase-dependent vasoconstriction through activation of PGH2/TxA2 receptors; responses are enhanced in kidneys from diabetic rats. This study examined the roles of cyclooxygenase-1/cyclooxygenase-2 in the enhanced renal vasoconstrictor effect of arachidonic acid in streptozotocin-diabetic(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical assessment scales are the most common means used by physicians to assess tremor severity. Some scientific tools that may be able to replace these scales to objectively assess the severity, such as accelerometers, digital tablets, electromyography (EMG) measurement devices, and motion capture cameras, are currently available. However,(More)
