Abstract Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (BD) are associated with debilitating psychiatric and cognitive dysfunction, worse health outcomes, and shorter life expectancies. The pathophysiological understanding of and therapeutic resources for these neuropsychiatric disorders are still limited. Humans harbor over 1000 unique bacterial species in our gut, which have been linked to both physical and mental/cognitive health. The gut microbiome is a novel and promising avenue to understand the attr...

Loneliness is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Deeper understanding of neurobiological mechanisms underlying loneliness is needed to identify potential intervention targets. We did not find any systematic review of neurobiology of loneliness. Using MEDLINE and PsycINFO online databases, we conducted a search for peer-reviewed publications examining loneliness and neurobiology. We identified 41 studies (n = 16,771 participants) that had employed various methods including compute...

We investigated subjective cognitive complaints (SCCs), as well as physical and mental health factors, in adults and older adults. U.S. residents (N = 2,962) were recruited via the Amazon Mechanical Turk platform and completed a 90-item survey. Overall, 493/1930 (25.5%) of younger adults and 278/1032 (26.9%) of older adults endorsed SCCs. Analyses revealed worse physical and mental health characteristics in the SCC+ compared to the SCC- group, with primarily medium (Cohen's d = 0.50) to large (0...

The human microbiome plays an important role in our health and identifying factors associated with microbiome composition provides insights into inherent disease mechanisms. By amplifying and sequencing the marker genes in high-throughput sequencing, with highly similar sequences binned together, we obtain Operational Taxonomic Units (OTU) profiles for each subject. Due to the high-dimensionality and non-normality features of the OTUs, the measure of diversity is introduced as a summarization at...

ABSTRACT Background Peripheral levels of pro-inflammatory biomarkers have been shown to be altered in schizophrenia (SZ) and associated with cognitive impairments, but their relevance to specific cognitive domains remains unclear. Methods Plasma levels of cytokines, chemokines, and vascular biomarkers were quantified and compared between SZ and healthy comparison (HC) groups. Cognition was assessed using the Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System Trail Making (TM) and Color Word Interference (CW...
