A new study suggests that targeting one particular symptom of schizophrenia may have a positive effect on other symptoms, offering significant promise for treating an aspect of schizophrenia that currently has no pharmaceutical options.
The study, published in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, reveals that successfully treating the negative symptom avolition — reduced motivation — has a positive effect on other negative symptoms of the debilitating disorder.
Exercise addiction is nearly four times more common among people who show traits of an eating disorder, according to a new study published in the journal Eating and Weight Disorders.
“It is known that those with eating disorders are more likely to display addictive personality and obsessive-compulsive behaviours,” said study leader Mike Trott, a Ph.D. researcher in Sport Science at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in the U.K.
Newborns who spend time in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) have a greater risk of mental health issues later, regardless of their birth weight, according to a new Canadian study from McMaster University in Ontario.

In a new review, researchers discovered that a test widely used to diagnose autism in children is less reliable than previously assumed.
Using a novel study method, investigators from Rutgers University digitized the standardized test known as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), to improve reliability when recording observations of a child’s behavior and activity.
The test assesses communication skills, social interaction and play for children who may have autism or other developmental disorders.
Military training includes learning to suppress emotion and the development of self-reliance. These skills are believed to help service members perform better in the field. New research suggests that when veterans return home, strict adherence to these traits can become detrimental, leading to more severe post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms that are more difficult to treat.
