Adolescents — especially girls — who spend more time in extracurricular activities and less than two hours of screen time after school have better mental health, according […]

CBT Corrects Brain Abnormality in Patients with OCD

“Researchers have discovered a brain abnormality in people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that may help predict which patients are most likely to respond to treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), according to a study published online in Brain Imaging and Behavior. “The hemodynamic response function (HRF) represents the transfer function linking neural activity with the functional […]
