Live Webinar Just Announced
Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression
Presented by Paul Holtzheimer, MD (ADAA Board Member)
Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is emerging as a potential intervention for patients with highly treatment-resistant depression (TRD). Early, open-label studies supported the safety and potential efficacy of DBS for TRD, but later randomized, controlled trials have yielded mixed results. This presentation will review the history of DBS for TRD, with a specific focus on DBS of the subcallosal cingulate (SCC) – the technique that has been most studied to date. The results of key trials will be critically evaluated, and recent research will be presented that provides a potential direction for further study of this promising intervention.

Taking Action - Raising Awareness: Supporting ADAA’s Mission
ADAA frequently posts and shares how our public community is taking action and raising awareness, focused on how people living with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma-related disorders have struggled, coped, and triumphed.
The My Cause My Cleats campaign is collaboration between the NFL and players in which players represent hundreds of charitable organizations whose missions they are passionate about. This year, DJ Chark Jr. from the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to support ADAA for the campaign! "I have lived with anxiety throughout my life and it has been something that has impacted me on and off the field. I believe that more awareness should be directed towards mental health, particularly with athletes. It is important to open up and talk about these issues, and I look forward to doing so during the My Cause My Cleats campaign."

Ashley N. Clausen, Ph.D.
“I joined ADAA in 2013 during my first year of graduate school. My graduate school mentor, Dr. Robin Aupperle, provided an incredible opportunity for me to attend ADAA’s annual conference in 2013. My experience at the conference highlighted the strong commitment of ADAA towards early career professionals in anxiety, depression, and trauma-focused disciplines and provided a supportive outlet for professional development. ADAA has been one of the few communities that has provided interdisciplinary opportunities combining my interests in neurobiology, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder. ADAA quickly became my professional home and I became more and more involved in the ADAA community. My involvement in ADAA has not only increased my professional network, but my own confidence and expertise as a scientist-practitioner, as well through online trainings and seminars. In 2018 I joined the Early Career SIG leadership and further expanded my appreciation for all ADAA has to offer to its community! I look forward to cutting-edge research, having really excellent and stimulating conversations with experts in the field every year at the annual conference!”
Dr. Clausen is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the VA VISN 6 MIRECC and the Duke Brain Imaging and Analysis Center in Durham, NC. Her research focus relates to the relationships between combat-related PTSD, neural (neuropsychological as well as neurobiological), and physical health in Veteran populations. Clinically, Dr. Clausen has advanced training in neuropsychological assessment, PTSD treatment, and health psychology interventions.

For the first time in decades, a fundamentally new drug became available for people with severe depression. A nasal spray called Spravato offers a new option for treating people whose depression hasn’t responded to other approaches. But there are still big questions about the drug’s effectiveness and safety.
Experiential avoidance may be a strong predictor of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder in late adolescence, according to study results published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. While experiential avoidance may offer short-term relief from distress, in the long run it may allow psychopathological symptoms to persist, as individuals do not fully process their distress.
The influence of gut microbiota extends to the brain via neuroinflammation, resulting in changes in mood, cognitive function, anxiety, and other symptoms associated with major depressive disorder, according to a recent review article published in the European Journal of Neuroscience.
Primary care physicians are at the front lines for screening and treating depression.

Hallucinogenic trips and addictive rushes of euphoria might be the first effects that come to mind when you think of MDMA. But the illicit party drug also has a potent effect on sociability, making users feel more connected to the people around them. And that's prompted research to study whether this MDMA benefit could help patients with PTSD, major depression and autism.
But is it possible for patients to solely reap MDMA’s social rewards?
University of York via EurekAlert!
Using a computerized version of cognitive-behavioral therapy to treat depression in children and young adults has the potential to improve access to psychological therapies and reduce waiting lists, a new study suggests.
Women who develop gestational diabetes may be more likely than those who do not to experience depression early in pregnancy and after delivery, according to findings published in Diabetic Medicine.

If you're prone to depression, this holiday season you might want to say "bah humbug" to offers of sugar plum pudding, caramel corn and chocolate babka.
A new study from a team of clinical psychologists at the University of Kansas suggests eating added sugars — common in so many holiday foods — can trigger metabolic, inflammatory and neurobiological processes tied to depressive illness. The work is published in the journal Medical Hypotheses.
Some cases of anxiety, which often accompanies autism, may stem from a faulty immune system, according to a new study in mice.
The findings are the latest in a wave of research into the provocative idea that immune cells influence the brain and behavior — and contribute to conditions such as autism and anxiety.
But several scientists have expressed caution, saying the immune effects on the brain and behavior reported in the study seem unlikely.
Another party drug is showing signs of going legit as magic mushrooms cleared the first hurdle of tests required to become a treatment for depression.
The active ingredient in the mushrooms, psilocybin, was found to be safe and well tolerated when given to healthy volunteers in a study by researchers at King’s College London.
Washington University School of Medicine via EurekAlert!
New research suggests that physicians evaluating young patients with hip pain should consider more than such patients' physical health. They also should consider screening those patients for clinical depression and anxiety -- impairments that researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found can have a negative impact on outcomes following hip surgery, such as pain, slower recoveries and inadequate return to activity.
The findings were published online Dec. 12 in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
