A mental health disorder characterized by feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities
Examples of anxiety disorders include panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Symptoms include stress that’s out of proportion to the impact of the event, inability to set aside a worry, and restlessness.
Treatment includes counseling or medications, including antidepressants.
Age Onset: Children or following strokes or brain injuries.
Symptoms: Not based on perception difficulties such as blindness or deafness; affecting understanding or production of speech.
Progression: Performance significantly lower than expectations for that age of child or adult.
Causes: Developmental in children; stroke or brain damage in adults may cause “aphasia,” the inability to understand or express language.
Therapies: Mostly by speech and language therapists.

- Multi-domain computerized cognitive training for children with intellectual developmental disorder: A randomized controlled trialby Jingsong Wu on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSION: Multi-domain CCT improves the intellectual function and adaptive functioning of children with IDD.
- Primary Palliative Care in Huntington's Diseaseby Madaline B Harrison on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: Provision of primary palliative care for HD in an interdisciplinary clinic is feasible. Integration of palliative care practices into HD specialty care requires additional training and modification of clinic operations.
- Parkinsonism in Genetic Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Systematic Reviewby Emma N M M von Scheibler on January 26, 2023
CONCLUSION: Parkinsonism has been reported in many GNDs. Findings from this study may provide clues for further research and improve management of patients with GNDs and/or parkinsonism.
- Interaural asymmetry of dynamic range: Abnormal fusion, bilateral interference, and shifts in attentionby Sean R Anderson on January 26, 2023
Speech information in the better ear interferes with the poorer ear in patients with bilateral cochlear implants (BiCIs) who have large asymmetries in speech intelligibility between ears. The goal of the present study was to assess how each ear impacts, and whether one dominates, speech perception using simulated CI processing in older and younger normal-hearing (ONH and YNH) listeners. Dynamic range (DR) was manipulated symmetrically or asymmetrically across spectral bands in a vocoder. We...
