REVIEW
Pawan Sharma, Rajesh Sagar
Dyslexia also known as specific reading disorder is a complex heritable disorder with unexpected difficulty in learning to read and spell despite adequate intelligence, education, environment, and normal senses. Over past decades, researchers have attempted to characterize dyslexia neurobiological and genetic levels and unfold its pathophysiology. The genetic research on dyslexia has received attention in Asia from the last decade. Though limited by different constraints the studies from Asia have been able to gather significant evidence in this field...

Subrata Naskar, Robin Victor, Kamal Nath
Diabetes and depression are rapidly growing chronic health conditions that have significant negative impact upon the physical, psychological, social and occupational functioning, quality of life and often leads to socio-economic burden. Presence of both these comorbid diseases results in various short term and long term complications and increases the mortality as compared to those with depression or diabetes alone. OBJECTIVES: Systematic review of the epidemiological data, risk factors and relationship between depression and glycaemic control among the Indian studies...

The term food addiction (FA) denotes a concept among researchers and lay consumers as a behavioural phenotype related to excessive food consumption. In this study we examined the prevalence of FA using the validated Yale Food Addiction Scale (YFAS) as well as the dimensional symptom count. In addition, we explored associations between participant characteristics and FA diagnosis. Outpatients attending a clozapine clinic and possessing a diagnosis of schizophrenia were invited to complete an anonymous survey using the YFAS...

BACKGROUND: Many researchers have found that the inflammatory process in the body and the brain may result in psychiatric disorders. Meta-analyses of cross-sectional studies have reported increase in inflammatory markers in depression. However, the direction of the association remains unclear. AIMS: To compare the levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6) in depressed and healthy controls. To study the associations of these biomarkers with severity and number of depressive episodes...

INTRODUCTION: Hoarding disorder (HD) affects at least 1.5% of the population and is considered to be hard to treat. The current study aimed to systematically review the treatments designed to improve HD symptoms and family impact. METHOD: Searches of PsycINFO, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Web of Science were undertaken. Studies were included if: (i) the study evaluated an intervention for hoarding problems; (ii) outcome measures were reported; and (iii) study results were published in an indexed journal or were a published abstract from a professional/research conference...

BACKGROUND: It is known that persons who die by suicide commonly visit a primary care physician (PCP) shortly before the fatal act.There is little information on history of suicide attempt in depressed patients who consult PCPs for non-mental health indications.This information is important because past history of suicide attempt is a known predictor of future suicide risk. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of depression among outpatients in primary care and to determine the prevalence and determinants of past suicide attempt among them...

The research on the alterations in functional connectivity in schizophrenia has been facilitated by development of an array of functional neuroimaging techniques. Functional Near Infra Red Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a novel diffuse optical neuromonitring method with its own advantages and limitations. The advantages of fNIRS have made it to be frequently used as a research tool by medical community in different settings. In fNIRS the property of haemoglobin to absorb near infrared light is used to measure brain activity...
