PCORI — New Funding Announcement
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) will be releasing a new funding announcement titled, "Pragmatic Clinical Studies to Evaluate Patient-Centered Outcomes." The goal of this announcement is to fund pragmatic clinical trials, large simple trials, or large-scale observational studies that compare the relative effectiveness of two or more alternatives for improving patient-centered outcomes. While any study that addresses critical choices faced by patients, their caregivers, clinicians and/or delivery systems will be considered, PCORI's multi-stakeholder panels have identified 16 high-priority topics and research questions. PCORI will give first consideration to applications that directly address one or more of the 16 PCORI Priority Topics.
Please note that for this cycle, PCORI has made no changes to the list. PCORI has funds available up to $90 million for studies in response to the current cycle of the PCS funding announcement, including any studies for the PCORI priority topics.
The mission of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is to improve the quality and relevance of evidence available to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, employers, insurers and policymakers make informed health decisions. You are invited to review this new funding announcement and share this information with others who may be interested.
The pre-announcement is available on the PCORI website with further details about the new topic on anxiety in children, adolescents and/or young adults. The funding announcement will be released on Jan. 16.

The error-related negativity is a brain signal response to errors that is thought to reflect threat sensitivity and has been implicated in anxiety disorders in individuals without autism spectrum disorder. A new Autism Research study has revealed that the ERN is related to social anxiety symptoms — specifically performance fears — in youth with ASD.
A new study suggests that for teenagers, even a short period of sleep restriction could, over the long term, raise their risk for depression and addiction. University of Pittsburgh investigators invited 35 participants, aged 11.5-15 years, into a sleep lab for two nights. Half the participants slept for 10 hours, while the other half slept only four hours.
Stanford University via Futurity
Researchers have identified five new categories of mental illness that cut across current diagnoses of anxiety and depression. The five categories, which researchers define by their specific symptoms and areas of brain activation, are: tension, anxious arousal, general anxiety, anhedonia (the inability to feel pleasure) and melancholia.
Binge eating is a significant obstacle to losing weight, according to new findings published in the journal Obesity. Those who continue to binge eat while trying to lose weight drop about half as much as those who don't or those who do and then subsequently stop. Binge-eating presents a problem for people with Type II diabetes and obesity who are actively working to lose weight to improve health.
Venlafaxine was more efficacious than lithium for depression and anxiety, and residual anxiety at the end of treatment was associated with depressive relapse, according to the results of a recent study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders. Researchers used data from a randomized 12-week study of venlafaxine compared with lithium monotherapy for bipolar II depression in 129 adults.

A new study finds that rates of psychosis can be close to eight times higher in some regions compared to others. The findings suggest that environmental factors, in addition to genetics influence the development of psychosis. The study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, was the largest international comparison of incidence of psychotic disorders, and the first major investigation of its kind in more than 25 years.
Can orange light therapy help people who have serious mental disorders? "Emergency psychiatric care hasn't seen much new thinking about approaches to treatment. We're trying to do something about that," says Håvard Kallestad, a researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology's Department of Mental Health.
In a new study, researchers used a unique approach to investigate the brain activity of patients with major depressive disorder. They analyzed brain images to better understand how one region of the brain may affect another region, a process known as effective connectivity, in those with MDD. The findings were published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.
Borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder affect an estimated 1.6 percent and 2.6 percent of U.S. adults, respectively; both illnesses are severe and associated with significant disability. They commonly co-occur and share certain symptoms, including impulsivity and emotional instability. Given these overlapping features, it can be challenging for clinicians to differentiate between the two disorders.
The New York Times
What does the child who can't say goodbye to a parent without breaking down have in common with the child who is cripplingly terrified of dogs and the one who gets a bad stomach ache reliably on Monday morning? Anxieties and worries of all kinds are common in children, necessarily part of healthy development, but also, when they interfere with the child’s functioning, the most common pediatric mental health problems.
The Wall Street Journal
Anxiety disorders are common in childhood, and many parents naturally want to shield their youngsters from distress. But that is often the exact opposite of what they should do.
Future of Personal Health
Anxiety affects one of out of four teens these days, but can be difficult to detect. Some kids keep it inside. If you pay attention, you will notice that their worries interfere with usual activities. They avoid social situations and are constantly afraid of making mistakes. Other kids will take the opposite direction. They engage in risky behaviors and hide the evidence from you.
Naomi Judd is a Grammy-winning legend who's been a part of the fabric of country music for decades. And while her life has been full of challenges and tragedies along with the triumphs, she's always bounced back. But in 2011, everything changed overnight. She'd just wrapped a tour with her fellow country music star and daughter Wynonna when a hammer seemed to come down over her life, and she felt paralyzed.
Anxiety, to those on the outside, could be simply articulated as "worrying." But for those who suffer with crippling anxiety, they're aware of how it's so much more than that. And a Facebook post written by anxiety sufferer Brittany Nichole Morefield earlier this year gave a powerful insight into exactly what it is.
