Trypophobia is traditionally known as a fear of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps, such as those of a honeycomb, strawberry seeds or even aerated chocolate. However, based on the findings of a new study, researchers at Emory University have found that the condition is driven less by fear and more by a feeling of disgust.
Paternal age older than 25 years and maternal age older than 22 years were shown to be associated with schizophrenia in offspring, and higher paternal age was shown to be associated with other mental disorders, according to the results of recent research published in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice.
Emerging research suggests black adolescents show different depressive symptoms than people from other age and racial groups. This knowledge has lead Rutgers University-Camden researchers to recommend that clinicians adjust their treatment plans to ensure appropriate interventions. The study appears in the Journal of the Society for Social Work and Research.
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was effective, safe, and well tolerated as add-on treatment for bipolar depression in the first randomized sham-controlled double-blind study of tDCS in bipolar depression. Compared with sham tDCS, active tDCS was associated with superior improvement in depressive symptoms and did not induce more manic/hypomanic episodes, the investigators report.
A recent study finds that children commonly show signs of a mental disorder soon after receiving a diagnosis of a chronic physical condition. Researchers from the University of Waterloo surveyed children between the ages of six and 16, and all within a month of their diagnosis with asthma, food allergy, epilepsy, diabetes or juvenile arthritis.

Lack of sleep may cause more than just dark circles under your eyes. New research found that people who sleep less than the recomended eight hours are also more likely to have repetitive negative thoughts, a finding that could explain the link between sleep and mental health. The study was published in Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry.

Dermatologists across Europe tend to underestimate mood disorders in their patients, according to a study published online Dec. 16 in the British Journal of Dermatology. Researchers estimated the agreement between clinical assessment of depression and anxiety by a dermatologist and patients' self-reported responses to the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS).

One major stumbling block in the treatment of depression is the fact that while antidepressants are an effective option, they do not work in all people with the condition. Scientists report a discovery that may explain why this is the case. The findings were published in the journal PLOS Biology.
Women, but not men, experience seasonal changes in their mood across the year, including more depressive symptoms in winter, a new study from the University of Glasgow has found. These changes appear to be independent of social and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, alcohol use and physical activity.
Many pediatricians agree that early mental health screenings are important; however, few providers are actually conducting these screenings in their own practices. In a new study published in the journal Pediatrics, researchers have found that if pediatricians were to receive the right training and support, they would be far more likely to carry out mental health screenings during children’s annual checkups.

The prevalence of anxiety and depression is increasing worldwide. The impact of this illness — the costs its treatment invokes, as well as its increased prevalence — has invited comparisons with leading chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer and coronary artery disease. So far that has not meant better, more accessible treatment for sufferers, who have too often remained in the shadows of healthcare. But awareness is growing.
