preceded by severe emotional distress. While resonant coughing and throat clearing is possible, indicating physically preserved vocal cord functioning, articulation in social contexts is virtually impossible. Despite controversy surrounding the precise etiological mechanisms, standardized circumlaryngeal manual therapy often results in rapid recovery after a single treatment [8] . This combination of a psychological etiology and a rapid nonpharmacological intervention make CA an intriguing…

Limbic and cortical control of phonation for speech in response to a public speech preparation stressor
TLDR
The data confirm that stress alters the phonatory control for speech production through limbic-motor interactions and support the Trait Theory of Voice Disorders.
Kinetics and Dose Dependency of Intranasal Oxytocin Effects on Amygdala Reactivity
Management of functional communication, swallowing, cough and related disorders: consensus recommendations for speech and language therapy
TLDR
This consensus document aims to provide recommendations for assessment and intervention that are relevant to both adults and young people and provides specific examples of these strategies for different symptoms.
Anxiety-impulsivity subtypes in adolescent internalizing disorder are characterized by distinguishable neurodevelopmental, neurocognitive and clinical trajectory signatures
TLDR
The results demonstrate an impulsivity-dependent heterogeneity in adolescent internalizing disorders, with high-impulsivity patients being characterized by neurodevelopmental delay at the neural and cognitive levels.
Serotonin and early life stress interact to shape brain architecture and anxious avoidant behavior – a TPH2 imaging genetics approach
TLDR
It is suggested that early life stress shapes the neural organization of the limbic-prefrontal circuits in interaction with individual variations in the TPH2 gene to promote a phenotype characterized by facilitated threat avoidance, thus promoting early adaptation to an adverse environment.
Serotonin and childhood maltreatment interact to shape brain architecture and anxious avoidant behavior – a TPH2 imaging genetics approach
TLDR
It is suggested that childhood maltreatment shapes the neural organization of the thalamic-limbic-prefrontal circuits in interaction with individual variations in the TPH2 gene to promote a phenotype characterized by facilitated threat avoidance, thus promoting early adaptation to an adverse environment.
Funktionelle Sprech-, Schluck- und Sprachstörungen
TLDR
Klinisch kann die Diagnose meistens anhand physiologischer Unstimmigkeiten and der Reversibilitat der Symptome gestellt werden, Bei funktionellen Schluckstorungen wie dem Globusgefuhl ist eine apparative Ausschlussdiagnostik meistenseitig.
Oxytocinergic modulation of stress-associated amygdala-hippocampus pathways in humans is mediated by serotonergic mechanisms
TLDR
Findings provide first evidence that effects of OXT on stress-associated amygdala-hippocampal-midbrain pathways are critically mediated by the 5-HT system in men.

TLDR
Understanding of stress signaling pathways by genetic insults likely contributes to PFC deficits in schizophrenia, while age-related insults initiate interacting vicious cycles that increase vulnerability to Alzheimer's degeneration.
