Suicide is a leading cause of death, but it is not well understood or well researched. Our purpose in this review is to summarize extant knowledge on neurobiological and psychological factors involved in suicide, with specific goals of identifying areas particularly in need of future research and of articulating an initial agenda that may guide future research. We conclude that from both neurobiological and psychological perspectives, extant research findings converge on the view that two… Expand

Conceptualizing the neurobiology of non-suicidal self-injury from the perspective of the Research Domain Criteria Project
TLDR
A review on the neurobiology associated with NSSI is organized using the domains proposed by the Research Domain Criteria initiative: Negative Valence, PositiveValence, Cognitive, Social Processes, and Arousal/Regulatory Systems. Expand
Pain in Suicidal Ideations and Behaviors
With one million deaths worldwide, suicide is a major health problem. Despite a growing literature on this subject, efficient therapeutic strategies to prevent them are still lacking. New hypothesesExpand
Suicidal behaviors and irritability in children and adolescents: a systematic review of the nature and mechanisms of the association
TLDR
This review reviewed consistencies and variation in the literature linking irritability to suicidal ideation (SI) and suicide attempt (SA) and proposed specific mechanistic pathways, whereby irritability may modulate the risk for SB. Expand
Animal models to improve our understanding and treatment of suicidal behavior
TLDR
Human biological findings, as well as protective effects of medications associated with modifying risk of engaging in suicidal behavior that are readily translatable to animal models, are broadly described. Expand
Neurobiology of Suicide
TLDR
The convergence evidence for the role of the blood-brain barrier in the pathophysiology of suicide is described, as well as the roles of several inflammatory markers and neurotropic factors. Expand
Pain and suicidality: Insights from reward and addiction neuroscience
TLDR
It is suggested that interventions aimed at restoring the balance between the reward and anti-reward networks in patients with chronic pain may help decreasing their suicide risk. Expand
The psychology of suicidal behaviour.

Key recent developments in theoretical, clinical, and empirical psychological science about the emergence of suicidal thoughts and behaviours are described, and the central importance of psychological factors are emphasised. Expand
Developing psychological perspectives of suicidal behaviour and risk in people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia: we know they kill themselves but do we understand why?

Purpose of review There has been a recent resurgence of interest in better understanding the nature of suicidal behavior in schizophrenia, and numerous publications in the years 2000-2002 haveExpand
Delusions and suicidality.
TLDR
This study found evidence that the presence of delusions distinguished persons with or without a history of suicide attempt, but found no relationship between delusions and history of suicidal ideation or suicide attempts in any of the diagnostic groups. Expand

TLDR
The notion that insight may be associated with greater suicidality was partially supported and general awareness of having a mental disorder did not predict suicidal behavior. Expand
Toward a clinical model of suicidal behavior in psychiatric patients.
TLDR
A stress-diathesis model is proposed in which the risk for suicidal acts is determined not merely by a psychiatric illness but also by a diathesis, reflected in tendencies to experience more suicidal ideation and to be more impulsive and, therefore, more likely to act on suicidal feelings. Expand
