Neurobiology of Depression Book Excerpt:

Major depressive disorders have recently been associated with impairments in signaling pathways that regulate neuroplasticity and cell survival. Agents designed to directly target molecules in these pathways hold promise as new therapeutics for depression. With the collaboration of the most prestigious international specialists in biochemistry, molecular biology, genomics, psychiatry, psychology, and pharmacology, Neurobiology of Depression discusses the nature of the central nervous system circuits responsible for the modifications of neuronal functioning that lead to depression. The book begins by discussing animal, neurophysiological, and neuropsychological models of depression as well as neural foundations. It explores genetic factors that contribute to depression and describes the effect of monoaminergic systems in the central nervous system. Next, the book profiles the rise of psychopharmacology in the treatment of depression and the research into serotonin and monoamine reuptake inhibitors. It examines the role of the glutamatergic, endocannabinoid, and opioid systems in the pathophysiology of mood disorders, as well as the effect of biological rhythms on the human body. Later chapters review the role of CRF-related ligands, CRF receptors, HPA axis activity, and glucocorticoid receptors in the regulation of the stress response and depression. They also describe cytokine modulation of molecular mechanisms. They examine the role of neuropeptide Y, nitric oxide, beta-arrestins, BDNF, and phosphodiesterases, and discuss the use of tachykinin antagonists in treatment. Finally, they analyze the neurobiological basis for the development of new antidepressant agents. Exploring myriad aspects of a disease that plagues a large percentage of the population worldwide, this volume captures the state of the science of this debilitating disorder, facilitating further research and discovery.

Temperament and the Neuroscience of Depression Book Excerpt:

Temperament has been known to have genetic underpinnings and for being stable over the course of a person's life. Depression has also been shown to have a biological component due to its association with imbalances in the brain, specifically involving the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine in areas of the brain that regulate mood. Since both temperament and depression are linked to biology, it can be hypothesized that they may be connected in some way. Research has shown a link of the melancholic temperament type with Major Depressive Disorder. The melancholic temperament consists of individuals who are high in Negative Affect and low in Positive Affect. Other temperament types such as depressive, anxious, and irritable have also been shown to increase the risk for developing mental disorders. The hyperthymic temperament has been found to be protective against developing a mood or mental disorder, and in decreasing the risk for suicide attempts.

Neuroscience for Psychologists and Other Mental Health Professionals Book Excerpt:

Harnesses new research about the link between neuroscience and immunology that underlies promising nonpharmacological treatment for mental disorders As researchers learn more about the neuroscience and neurobiology of mental disorders, the prevailing understanding of how to treat these conditions-often favoring the use of psychotropic medications-is changing rapidly. This book harnesses cutting-edge research about how neuroscience integrated with recent findings in immunology can explain behavioral syndromes and describes nonpharmacological approaches for ameliorating psychic distress and promoting wellbeing. The text discusses the pros and cons of using pharmaceuticals for treating different categories of mental distress in adults and children while illuminating key developments in alternative approaches to treatment-encompassing lifestyle changes related to diet, exercise, and strong interpersonal relationships-that have value and can lead to improved outcomes without medication. These new approaches are discussed as additions to the other research-validated techniques that are already offered in the therapeutic community. The book presents the latest neuroscience and physiological explanations behind the major diagnostic categories of mental illness-including schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and addiction-that underlie traditional pharmaceutical treatment interventions and describe how and why non-pharmaceutical treatment strategies can be effective. It integrates current information about brain function and its chemical underpinnings with new research about immunology that identifies the mechanism through which lifestyle changes can obviate stress and offer new avenues for wellbeing. Of particular note is cutting-edge information about fast-spiking GABA interneurons and the role of NMDA receptors in psychosis, the role of inflammatory processes in mood disorders, and gut microbiota' s influence on inflammation. The book also explores the physiology undergirding health and resilience, offering a research-based rationale for viewing the mind and body as inseparable for treatment purposes. Students and mental health professionals in social work, counseling, and psychology will learn the benefits of delivering treatment interventions geared toward prevention and amelioration of distress, through lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and maintaining regular sleep and daily routines. Key Features: Presents the latest information on the neuroscience behind disorders such as schizophrenia, major depression, anxiety disorders, and addictions Explains the mechanisms through which diet and exercise can influence mood disorders and psychosis Covers the latest on the efficacy and side effects of antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, mood stabilizers, and stimulants Discusses ADHD, depression, pediatric bipolar, issues for children in the child welfare system, and advocacy efforts Prepares mental health professionals to provide services in a primary health care setting in the role of the behavioral health professional

The Upward Spiral Workbook Book Excerpt:

Positive life changes lead to positive brain changes. Drawing on the huge success of his groundbreaking book, The Upward Spiral, neuroscientist Alex Korb offers actionable, step-by-step skills to help you reshape your brain and create an upward spiral towards a happier, healthier life. Depression is defined by a collection of symptoms. You feel crappy most of the time. Nothing seems interesting, and everything seems overwhelming. You have trouble with sleep. You feel guilty and anxious and have thoughts that life isn’t worth living. Each symptom reinforces and inspires new symptoms, and this is a sign that your brain circuits are caught in the downward spiral of depression. So, how can you reverse it? In his first book, The Upward Spiral, neuroscientist Alex Korb demystified the intricate brain processes that cause depression and outlined a practical and effective approach for getting better. Based on the latest research, this evidence-based workbook takes the theory behind Korb’s breakthrough book and distills it into concrete, actionable exercises and skills. Just as one small trigger can drag you down, an effective intervention can start enough momentum to carry you back up. Exercise, attention to breathing, gratitude, sleep hygiene, and positive social interactions are just some of the offerings in this workbook that can help alter activity in specific neural circuits, setting you on the path toward an upward spiral to happiness and well-being.

The Neuroscience of Human Relationships Attachment and the Developing Social Brain Second Edition Book Excerpt:

A revised edition of the best-selling text on how relationships build our brains. As human beings, we cherish our individuality yet we know that we live in constant relationship to others, and that other people play a significant part in regulating our emotional and social behavior. Although this interdependence is a reality of our existence, we are just beginning to understand that we have evolved as social creatures with interwoven brains and biologies. The human brain itself is a social organ and to truly understand being human, we must understand not only how we as whole people exist with others, but how our brains, themselves, exist in relationship to other brains. The first edition of this book tackled these important questions of interpersonal neurobiology—that the brain is a social organ built through experience—using poignant case examples from the author’s years of clinical experience. Brain drawings and elegant explanations of social neuroscience wove together emerging findings from the research literature to bring neuroscience to the stories of our lives. Since the publication of the first edition in 2006, the field of social neuroscience has grown at a mind-numbing pace. Technical advances now provide more windows into our inner neural universe and terms like attachment, empathy, compassion, and mindfulness have begun to appear in the scientific literature. Overall, there has been a deepening appreciation for the essential interdependence of brain and mind. More and more parents, teachers, and therapists are asking how brains develop, grow, connect, learn, and heal. The new edition of this book organizes this cutting-edge, abundant research and presents its compelling insights, reflecting a host of significant developments in social neuroscience. Our understanding of mirror neurons and their significance to human relationships has continued to expand and deepen and is discussed here. Additionally, this edition reflects the gradual shift in focus from individual brain structures to functional neural systems—an important and necessary step forward. A great deal of neural overlap has been discovered in brain activation when we are thinking about others and ourselves. This raises many questions including how we come to know others and whether the notion of an “individual self” is anything more than an evolutionary strategy to support our interconnection. In short, we are just beginning to see the larger implications of all neurological processes—how the architecture of the brain can help us to better understand individuals and our relationships. This book gives readers a deeper appreciation of how and why relationships have the power to reshape our brains throughout our life.
