- Is there such a thing as gambling dual disorder? Preliminary evidence and clinical profilesby Néstor Szerman on December 14, 2022
Patients with gambling disorder (GD) frequently present other mental disorders, such as substance use disorder (SUDs), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mood disorders, and impulse-control disorders.

This study aims to provide further evidence of the co-occurrence of GD and other mental disorders in routine clinical practice and to identify different...

- Screening for impulse control disorders in Parkinson's disease and dopamine agonist use: a study of pharmacokinetic and psychological risk factorsby Manuela Contin on November 9, 2022

DA plasma levels were overlapping between QUIP positive and negative patients. BIS-11, particularly the motor impulsiveness subscale, might be a useful screening tool in PD patients eligible for DA therapy.
