- Prevalence and risk factors for depression among training physicians in China and the United Statesby Lihong Chen on May 17, 2022
During their first year of medical residency (internship), 35% of training physicians in the United States suffer at least one depression episode. We assessed whether there is a similar increase of depression among first year residents in China, and identified predictors of depression in the two systems. 1006 residents across three cohorts (2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Peking Union Medical College were assessed in parallel with three cohorts of 7028...
- Artificial intelligence-assisted niacin skin flush screening in early psychosis identification and predictionby Tao Chen on May 16, 2022
- Reduced temporal activation during a verbal fluency test in clinical high risk of psychosis: a functional near-infrared spectroscopy-based studyby Yanyan Wei on May 16, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: The brain activation of rSTG is abnormal among subjects at clinicial high risk for psychosis. This abnormality is probably associated with the neural mechanisms of deficits in the working memory during the early stage of psychosis.
- Attenuated niacin-induced skin flush response in individuals with clinical high risk for psychosisby Ranpiao Gan on May 16, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: Attenuated niacin-induced flushing emerged during the early phase of psychosis. New devices should be developed and verified for objective quantification of skin responses in the CHR population.
