Placebo and Nocebo: How Expectations Influence Treatment Outcomes
Recent evidence delineating some of the neurobiological changes that occur as a result of inducing a placebo or nocebo response serve as a strong reminder that these effects are also an active part of medical treatment.

Psychiatric Disorders in Children and Adolescents 6-to-12 Months After Mild TBI
Short-term psychiatric morbidity associated with mild traumatic brain injury in children occurs more commonly than previously reported and is related to both pre-injury social factors and concurrent neurocognitive functioning.

Association of Major Depression With Sexual Dysfunction in Men
Sexual dysfunction rates were higher for major depressive disorder than for atypical depression. Depression affected sexual function domains differently: orgasm was most impaired, whereas sexual desire was preserved. More severe depression resulted in greater sexual dysfunction.
