BACKGROUND: Current pharmacological treatments and psychotherapeutic approaches often have adverse effects or ineffective in late-life cognitive and mental illnesses. Mind-body interventions offer a holistic approach and are of interest because of potential patient acceptability and scalability. OBJECTIVE: To synthesize current evidence on mind-body interventions in treating or preventing mental illnesses and cognitive disorders in older adults. SEARCH STRATEGY: A search was conducted using Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, and PsycINFO articles published from 1993 to 2017...

OBJECTIVE: All Alzheimer disease (AD) clinical trials, including those enrolling patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), require dyadic participation. The purpose of this study was to elucidate how people with MCI and their study partners decide whether to enroll in clinical trials. METHODS: This was a mixed methods interview study. We interviewed patient participants with a consensus research diagnosis of MCI and their study partners. Interviews examined how dyads decide whether to enroll in a clinical trial and whether AD biomarker testing affects willingness to enroll...

OBJECTIVE: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a prevalent condition in older adults. Although antidepressant drugs are commonly prescribed, efficacy is variable, and older patients are more prone to side effects. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an alternative therapy used increasingly in the treatment of MDD. Even though recent studies have shown efficacy of rTMS in elderly depressed patients, the safety and efficacy of accelerated rTMS has not been studied in this population...

OBJECTIVE: After an extended period of caregiving, the death of a family member with dementia can provide a sense of relief to individuals because caregiving has ended and their loved one is no longer suffering. Little is known about predeath factors associated with feeling relieved after the death of a family member with dementia. This study examined 1) predeath factors associated with caregiver (CG) relief; and 2) whether CG relief is associated with postbereavement adjustment, namely complicated grief and depression symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: Insomnia is an important clinical problem affecting the elderly. We examined trends in insomnia diagnosis and treatment among Medicare beneficiaries over an eight-year period. METHODS: This was a time-series analysis of Medicare administrative data for years 2006-2013. Insomnia was defined as the presence of at least one claim containing International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM), code 307.41, 307.42, 307...

OBJECTIVE: Epidemiologic studies have demonstrated that depression is a risk factor for dementia. In particular, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) has been noted to be highly relevant to depression. It has been suggested that α-synuclein (α-syn), a major component of Lewy bodies, is related to the onset and progression of DLB. To investigate the relationship between depression and DLB, we compared serum α-syn levels of patients with depression to those of healthy subjects. METHODS: The subjects were 103 inpatients with Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), or DSM-5 major depressive disorder (MDD) and 132 healthy comparisons...

Telemental health (TMH) for older patients has the potential to increase access to geriatric specialists, reduce travel times for patients and providers, and reduce ever growing healthcare costs. This systematic review article examines the literature regarding psychiatric assessment and treatment via telemedicine for geriatric patients. English language literature was searched using Ovid Medline, PubMed, and PsycINFO with search terms including telemedicine, telemental health, aging, and dementia. Abstracts were reviewed for relevance based on inclusion criteria...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine whether use of certain types of online communication technology is associated with subsequent depressive symptoms. DESIGN: Nationally representative, population-based prospective cohort. SETTING: Data were obtained from the 2012 and 2014 waves of the Health and Retirement Study (HRS). PARTICIPANTS: 1,424 community-residing older adults (mean age, 64.8) in the United States. MEASUREMENTS: We examined associations between use of four communication technologies (email, social networks, video chat, and instant messaging) in 2012 and depressive symptoms (eight-item Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scale) at two-year follow-up...

The vitality of geriatric mental health research requires an ongoing infusion of new investigators into the career pipeline. This report examines outcomes of the NIMH-funded, Advanced Research Institute (ARI) in Geriatric Mental Health, a national mentoring program supporting the transition of early career researchers to independent investigators. Outcome data for 119 ARI Scholars were obtained from the NIH Reporter database, CVs, and PubMed: 95.0% continue in research, 80.7% had obtained federal grants, and 45...

Yoga is an ancient mind body practice. Although yoga has been used as a complementary health approach for enhancing wellness and addressing a variety of health issues, little is known about the impact of yoga on cognitive functioning in adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. We conducted a literature review to examine the impact of yoga on persons with MCI and dementia. Eight studies were identified that reported on yoga as either the primary intervention or one component of a multi-component intervention in samples of persons with MCI or dementia...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the dual-task gait performance of older adults with Late-Life Depression (LLD) versus Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). DESIGN: Cross-sectional study with three matched groups: LLD, MCI and non-depressed and cognitively intact (NDCI). SETTING: LLD group participants were recruited from geriatric psychiatry clinics in London, Ontario. Matched participants meeting criteria for the MCI or NDCI groups were previously recruited for other research studies from geriatric clinics and the community...

OBJECTIVE: Impaired insight is common in schizophrenia and may be affected by changes that occur with aging. There have been a few nonprospective investigations of insight in older adults with schizophrenia (OAS). This study examines the temporal fluctuations that occur with insight-defined as "awareness of mental illness" (dichotomized into presence or absence)-along with associated factors that influence illness awareness (IA) in OAS. METHODS: The sample consisted of 103 persons derived from an initial sample of 250 community-dwelling persons aged 55 and over with early-onset schizophrenia spectrum disorder...

OBJECTIVE: We aim to estimate the risk of perpetrating aggression in Alzheimer disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis of primary studies. METHODS: A systematic search was conducted in six bibliographic databases according to a preregistered protocol. Studies that reported aggressive behaviors in individuals with AD and MCI compared with healthy individuals or those with other dementia etiologies were identified...
