Anxiety and stress can impact cognitive flexibility of an individual, involving prefrontal cortex. Here is the latest research.

Comorbidity In Psychiatry

There is ongoing debate regarding the handling of comorbidity in psychiatric disorders, and determining whether the issue lies with the categorizations of diagnostic conventions or if there is an underlying pathology that links multiple diseases. Understanding how to give the proper diagnosis/diagnoses would allow for optimal management of the patient. Find the latest research on comorbidity in psychiatry here.

Epigenetics & Psychiatry

Psychiatric disorders are known to be multifaceted in their pathophysiology. Because epigenetic changes can be sensitive to the environment, inherited, and reversible, the study of epigenetics in psychiatric disease is a logical way to understand the natural history of the disease as well as to develop therapeutics. Find the latest research on epigenetics and psychiatry here.
