LinkedIn he researchers analyzed previous research evaluating brain imaging scans to predict the outcomes of psychotherapy for major depressive and anxiety disorders. Psychiatrists are interested in identifying brain imaging markers of response to psychotherapy–comparable to electrocardiograms and laboratory tests used to decide on treatments for myocardial infarction.The review found 40 studies including patients with MDD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and other diagnoses. Some studies used structural brain imaging studies, which show brain anatomy; others used functional scans, which demonstrate brain activity.Although no single brain area was consistently associated with response to psychotherapy, the results did identify some “candidate markers.” Studies suggested that psychotherapy responses might be related to activity in two deep brain areas: the amygdala, involved in mood responses and emotional memories; and the anterior insula, involved in awareness of the body’s physiologic state, anxiety responses, and feelings of disgust.In MDD studies, patients with higher activity in the amygdala were more likely to respond to psychotherapy. In contrast, in some studies of anxiety disorders, lower activity in the amygdala was associated with better psychotherapy outcomes. Studies of anterior insula activity showed the converse: psychotherapy response was associated with higher pretreatment activity in anxiety disorders and lower activity in MDD.Other studies linked psychotherapy responses to a frontal brain area called the anterior cingulate cortex, which plays a critical role in regulating emotions. Most of the evidence suggested that MDD patients with lower activity in some parts of the ACC (ventral and subgenual) were more likely to have good outcomes with psychotherapy.“Future studies of psychotherapy response may focus further on these individual regions as predictive markers,” according to Dr. Chakrabarty. “Additionally, future biomarker studies may focus on pretreatment functional connectivity between these regions, as affective experience is modulated via reciprocal connections between brain areas such as the ACC and amygdala.”The researchers emphasize the limitations of current evidence on neuroimaging markers of psychotherapy response–the studies were highly variable in terms of their methodology and results. Further studies are needed to assess how the potential neuroimaging markers perform over time, whether they can predict which patients will respond better to medications versus psychotherapy, and how they might be integrated with clinical features in order to improve outcomes for patients with depression and anxiety disorders.

Sabah journalist Mehmet Ozcan has claimed Galatasaray are interested in signing Leicester City attacker Ahmed Musa and are leading the race for the Nigerian. The Leicester player has also been linked with Wolves in the past week after reports the newly promoted club have made an offer.Speaking to Sporx, the Galatasaray journalist said: “Galatasaray want to sign a player who can be a back-up for Bafe Gomis as well as play in the other positions. Leicester City’s Ahmed Musa certainly fits the bill.”“He’s likely to cost €3.5m for a season-long loan deal. I can confirm that Galatasaray are currently leading the race to sign him.”Embed from Getty ImagesLast week we covered reports from Turkey that Wolves are in the race to sign Musa following their promotion to the Premier League, but face competition from Turkey and CSKA Moscow.The Nigeria international is currently on loan with the Russian club after struggling to get games at Leicester City.Despite Wolves reportedly making offer for Musa it’s thought in Turkey he’ll join a club there, due to the difficulties he experienced in English football with the Foxes. But then the Turkish media usually think players linked with their clubs will end up there.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

LONDON: One of the most gorgeous sights of the 2019 One-Day World Cup in which ten teams battled each other today is one year old. Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli’s treatment of the cricketers’ scandal has taken the world by storm, with Indian fans mocking Steve Smith for the World Cup. Kohli was also honored by the International Cricket Council (ICC), which awarded the Spirit of Cricket telephone award. That was exactly one year before the incident, which changed the image of Virat Kohli in the eyes of his opponents with aggressive body language and reactions. The moments of friendship between the players were noted as the tension between the India and Australia World Cup began. Virat Kohli has rebuked Indian fans who have yelled at former Australian captain Steve Smith during the match and called him a fraud. Smith returned to international cricket after the ball-scraping controversy, and Kohli became involved in the crowd. India won the toss and elected to bat first. Kohli’s involvement came when Indian fans called Steve Smith a cheat line while fielding on the boundary line. Kohli also asked the fans in the gallery not to call Smith, and asked him to hand over the Smiths. Smith immediately bowed to Kohli and thanked him.After the match, Kohli came out against Smith’s fans. “It is painful for Indian fans to do such bad things,” Kohli said. “I don’t think Smith did anything to get ridiculed,” Cooley said. Fans were sad to see Smith mocking. “It is unacceptable to attack such a person personally,” he said. ICC also honored Kohli with the award of ‘Spirit of Cricket’ at the annual awards ceremony.

Schwarzenegger, who first played the titular killing machine in 1984’s James Cameron original, most recently headlined a low-rated Celebrity Apprentice reboot for NBC, a job that found him in the sights of none other than that show’s former host, President Donald Trump.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico While another studio could potentially scoop up the rights and have a go at the Terminator franchise, a source tells the paper, “It would need an independent production company to think about making this, and asking Arnie back at age 70 to play that again may be a tough ask.” Paramount Pictures/Melinda Sue Gordon(LOS ANGELES) — Arnold most likely won’t be back. Paramount, which owns the rights to the Terminator series, has reportedly terminated the Schwarzenegger series. Arnold’s last go-round as the killing machine, Terminator: Genysis, reportedly cost $115 million to make, but earned less than $90 million domestically. Overseas, however, the movie — which also starred Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones — actually did well, bringing its total take to more than $450 million. However, the New York Daily News reports Paramount execs had an option to bring back Arnold and Emilia, the latter who played savior of humanity’s baby mama Sarah Connor, for another film, but shelved it.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Research has shown that, in some cases, high-carbon forests support high levels of biodiversity.But a recent study, which looked at a wide variety of species groups, demonstrates that regrowth forests can support a greater number of representatives of some species groups.The findings support the conclusion that recovering forests should be included in conservation planning alongside old-growth forests. Tropical forests are key defenders in the fight against climate change. They lock down around 25 percent of the world’s carbon in their canopies, trunks and soils, a function so crucial that they play a prominent role in the 2015 Paris climate agreement.Research also shows that high-carbon forests can anchor richer ecosystems. This is a win-win situation for climate mitigation and wildlife conservation.However, according to a recent study published in the journal Science Advances, the riches of high-carbon stocks are not shared equally among the various species found in forests. Forests that are in the process of growing back — for example, after they’ve been logged for timber — seem to provide ideal conditions for pioneer species not found in old-growth forests.A regrowth forest canopy. Image by Frederik Van de Perre/University of Antwerp.“In the case of slime molds, we think that this less-humid environment in regrowth forests might be a more optimal growing situation,” said Frederik Van de Perre, a biologist and doctoral student at the University of Antwerp in Belgium and the lead author of the paper.Earlier studies have detected positive links between biodiversity and above-ground carbon storage. However, in one study, this positive effect was only visible when researchers drilled down to the relatively fine scale of 0.1 hectares (0.25 acres). According to a 2017 paper by ecologist Martin Sullivan of the University of Leeds in the U.K. and his colleagues, published in the journal Scientific Reports, the biodiversity-carbon relationship remains unknown at scales relevant to conservation planning.Sullivan also critiqued another key study that found a positive biodiversity-carbon relationship, suggesting that the authors did not properly control for environmental variations such as elevation, temperature and precipitation.“The protection of biodiversity needs to be considered alongside climate change mitigation, rather than [both] assumed to benefit automatically,” Sullivan told Mongabay in 2017.Van de Perre and his colleagues decided to attack the much-debated problem from a different angle.“When you read the literature, there are lots of papers saying [their research] is about biodiversity-carbon storage relationships,” Van de Perre said. “But actually, when you read those papers in detail, it turns out it’s about tree diversity. In my opinion, you can’t call that biodiversity.”Scientists on the way to the field site in the Yangambi Biosphere Reserve in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Image by Bart Würsten/Botanic Garden Meise.In their study, the authors researched a total of 10 different organismal groups.“We at least tried to capture what biodiversity is to the fullest [extent],” Van de Perre said.Working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Yangambi Biosphere Reserve, they used old-growth and regrowth forests as proxies for carbon-rich and carbon-poor environments. The 10 species groups they investigated included shrews, ants, trees, leaf lichens and slime molds.Previous research has looked at the relationship between mammals and carbon storage in tropical forests, but Van de Perre said that his team’s study had the “largest variety of species groups.”It was also “the first to at least compare trees with other types of species,” he added.The results did demonstrate a positive correlation between biodiversity and above-ground carbon storage, but only for trees and leaf lichens. The other eight organismal groups showed random, linear or even negative patterns of correlation.A plasmodial slime mold. The biodiversity of this organismal group demonstrated a negative relationship with above-ground carbon storage. Image by Myriam de Haan/Botanic Garden Meise.Van de Perre suggested that random correlations might result from what scientists call “turnover,” which means that certain species from the same organismal group replaced others as the carbon stock increased rather than growing alongside them.“We know of ants that are specialized on trees that occur in regrowth forests,” Van de Perre said, “and there are definitely [other] species [of ant] that only occur in old-growth forests.”Shrews displayed a linear correlation, suggesting that all species in this group were equally suited to both carbon-rich and carbon-poor forests.Slime molds, on the other hand, were the only organismal group to show a distinctly negative correlation, meaning that all species specialize in colonizing regrowth forests. This organismal group would undoubtedly lose out should regrowth forests be excluded from conservation initiatives.The results add an important wrinkle to the debate around forest protection and biodiversity.An old-growth forest canopy. Image by Maurice Leponce/Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences.“The general idea is that old-growth forest is important for its irreplaceability [and] regrowth forest is added value,” Van de Perre said. “But actually, creating and regenerating regrowth forests will help [both] biodiversity and carbon storage.”In fact, recovering forests sock away carbon 11 times faster than old-growth forests, according to a 2016 study. However, when it comes to biodiversity, the importance of regrowth forests will most likely depend on their proximity to old-growth forests to facilitate species recruitment. According to Van de Perre, this phenomenon was the case in the forest plots where the team did their research.“Forest regeneration will [therefore] benefit forest biodiversity both directly, by providing habitat for species adapted to early successional stages, and indirectly, by increasing connectivity and reducing [the] fragmentation of forests,” he said.Banner image of a plasmodial slime mold by Myriam de Haan/Botanic Garden Meise.Joshua Parfitt is a Mongabay intern based in The Hague, Netherlands.
