The anti-anxiety effects of ketamine are linked to changes in theta brainwaves

first_imgShare The anti-anxiety effects of ketamine are associated with specific brainwave changes, according to research published in the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology.The study found the therapeutic effects of ketamine were linked to changes in theta brainwaves in the right frontal area of the brain.“Ketamine appears effective in a wide range of ‘neurotic’ disorders: generalised anxiety disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, simple phobia, and social anxiety disorder — even when these are resistant to other treatments,” said study author Neil McNaughton of the University of Otago. Email “But no one knows how it achieves these effects. So we measured brain activity in treatment-resistant anxiety patients before and during ketamine treatment.”The researchers administered doses of ketamine to 12 patients with generalized anxiety disorder and/or social anxiety disorder, while monitoring their electrical brain activity.“Ketamine did not systematically change the left-right balance or complexity of brain rhythms; but had a very wide range of effects on their power — increasing fast ones and decreasing slow ones,” McNaughton explained to PsyPost.Ketamine was associated with reduced delta and theta brainwave oscillations, and increased gamma brainwave oscillations.However, “only decreases in one medium-low frequency band (theta) at one right-frontal site related to therapeutic improvement. So ketamine has many effects on the brain but only a small subset produce therapeutic action,” McNaughton said.Ketamine blocks the NMDA (N-methyl-d-aspartate) glutamate receptor. But there is still much to learn about how the drug impacts on the brain.“This is a small, preliminary, study and — unlike a previous study from our laboratory — saw changes only in fear questionnaire scores but not Hamilton anxiety scale scores. It also only tested social and generalised anxiety patients,” McNaughton explained.“EEG testing with ketamine treatment of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and simple phobia is needed to test how far the therapeutic link with theta rhythm is in general and how far it may be restricted to changes in anxiety. While we have demonstrated a specific brain change linked to therapeutic action, we still have no idea of the way that ketamine achieves this.”McNaughton was involved with a previous study that found ketamine produced rapid anti-anxiety effects, which lasted for 3 to 7 days at higher doses. “While it is effective, ketamine is not easy to administer and its actions appear to only last for about 1 week. Our results hint that its therapeutic action could be obtained with a more selective treatment, targeting right-frontal theta activity in particular, that may have fewer side effects, easier administration, and perhaps longer duration,” McNaughton said.The study, “Ketamine Effects on EEG during Therapy of Treatment-Resistant Generalized Anxiety and Social Anxiety“, was authored by Shabah Mohammad Shadli, Tame Kawe, Daniel Martin, Neil McNaughton, Shona Neehoff, and Paul Glue.

“Nothing like Anfield” – Press photographer on why Liverpool stadium better…

first_imgAhead of Liverpool’s clash against Red Star at Anfield, B92 in Serbia decided to have a chat with an Associated Press photographer in order to get an idea of what the fans and the players can expect from playing in the mythical stadium. Lindzi Parnabi has followed all of the big Premier League teams around Europe, but according to him, none of them come close to the Reds’ arena: “I’ve followed Manchester United, Chelsea, Everton, everyone – and nothing is like Anfield.”As he puts it: “I come here often and everything is new, it’s a modern stadium, the atmosphere is fantastic. You see all the fans, the flags, everything. I come here and I enjoy it”.Reserving specific praise for the Anfield faithful, Parnabi describes them as ‘special’ because they’re ‘always behind the team’, ‘always there’ whenever Liverpool plays, even if the result doesn’t end up being what they were hoping for.Embed from Getty ImagesHowever, the photographer recommends to anyone visiting and wanting to enjoy the best atmosphere possible to do so later on in the campaign, when results are even more crucial.He said: “It’s best at the end of the season, when they have an important match. You see the manager, Klopp, he’s good, energetic and glorious, and the players love him. I think he’s the best coach in the league”.Having lost their last Champions League game against Napoli, Liverpool are in need of a good result, especially if Paris Saint-Germain manage to beat Napoli in Paris on Wednesday evening.While many see this as a relatively easy game, anything can happen in European football, so they’ll still be needing their 12th man. Perhaps not at his very best, but it will help if he’s in decent form.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHow Singapore’s Start-Ups Are Shaping a Post-Pandemic Future.CNBC InternationalUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndolast_img read more

Ryan Reynolds tweaks Marvel’s “spoilers” memo to promote “Deadpool 2”

first_img Related 20th Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) — (NOTE LANGUAGE) From the guy who brought you a Deadpool 2 poster “from the studio that killed Wolverine” comes Ryan Reynolds’ latest send-up promoting his movie’s May 18 debut.Weeks ago, directors Joe and Anthony Russo posted a picture of a Marvel Studios memo in which they implored fans not to ruin the surprises throughout their latest hit, Avengers: Infinity War. The memo was being held down by villain Thanos’ fearsome Infinity Gauntlet, and capped with the hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence.That’s all the inspiration Deadpool needed.Reynolds just posted a picture of a memo framed by not only Deadpool’s gloved hand, but also the paws of a dog and a cat, and a baby’s hand — the latter likely a reference to a scene in the first film.In the memo, Reynolds/Deadpool and his alter ego Wade Wilson jokingly ask for similar discretion in “maintaining the highest level of super secrets, like how David Blaine catches bullets in his mouth. And the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices in Colonel Sanders’ delicious moustache.”The memo explains, “Only a handful of people know the film’s true plot. One of them is not Ryan Reynolds. We’re asking that when you see Deadpool 2, you don’t say a f****** word about the fun s*** in the movie. Cause it would be super lame to spoil the fact that Deadpool dies in this one. Kidding. Not kidding. Kidding?”Like the Russos’ message, Deadpool’s ends with a custom hashtag: “WadeWilsonDemandsYourSisterSorryStupidAutoCorrectSilence”.Also of note, 20th Century Fox is crossed out on the letterhead, replaced with “TBD,” a reference to the imminent sale of the studio’s entertainment properties.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
