A large nationwide study found that Black individuals carrying a genetic mutation in the TTN gene were at an increased risk of adverse clinical outcomes.
Results showed that African American veterans with PTSD had a higher risk of rehospitalization than those without PTSD. However, white veterans with PTSD did not have a significantly higher risk of rehospitalization post-stroke.
In the mouse brain, two neural pathways were discovered: The first is active during motivation; the second is active only at the termination of motivation. In humans, these pathways could underlie motivational dysfunctions present in various psychiatric conditions.

A UAB study evaluating the treatment of severe dyslipidemia showed that only one in three individuals with severe dyslipidemia took lipid-lowering medications without any improvement in the treatment rates over 10 years.
These findings could lead to non-invasive, low-cost tests and the early diagnosis of the disease, which progresses for decades before symptoms of dementia emerge.
