A neurobiological approach to the cognitive deficits of psychiatric disorders.
Deficits in brain networks that support cognitive regulatory functions are prevalent in many psychiatric disorders. Findings across neuropsychology and neuroimaging point to broad-based impairments that cross traditional diagnostic boundaries. These dysfunctions are largely separate from the classical symptoms of the disorders, and manifest in regulatory problems in both traditional cognitive and emotional domains. As such, they relate to the capacity of patients to engage effectively in their daily lives and activity, often persist even in the face of symptomatically effective treatment, and are poorly targeted by current treatments. Advances in cognitive neuroscience now allow us to ground an understanding of these cognitive regulatory deficits in the function and interaction of key brain networks. This emerging neurobiological understanding furthermore points to several promising routes for novel neuroscience-informed treatments targeted more specifically at improving cognitive function in a range of psychiatric disorders.

A few years ago the movie The Secret popularized the concept of the Law of Attraction. Pretty much it was saying that if what you hold in your mind will naturally be attracted by some mystical forces. Is this truth or fiction?
Once I pondered that question I tried to find some great work of art, architecture, science, athletics, or business that was achieved without intention or vision. Of course, hard work, practice, and effort were normally part of the equation. However, I could not find one single example of any achievement that did not start with a spark of an...
Achieve Freedom from your Addiction to Gambling
I remember attending a conference several years ago at a casino in Reno, Nevada. As I was walking to a meeting it became necessary to go through the black jack tables and slot machines areas. My path led me past one of their many cashier facilities. Right where people would get in line to buy their chips there was a sign clearly warning people not to gamble if certain situations existed. These included raising money for medical expenses, to pay a mortgage, and others. During a conversation with a taxi driver he told me about the unusual...
Many people have a very big problem with being able to forgive others. Often their difficulty is to the fact their memory of a particularly uncomfortable event causes them to physically relive the unpleasantness that originally occurred. Hypnotherapists call this phenomenon revivification. This is especially severe when a person has obsessive thoughts during which they ruminate. When you combine a tendency to ruminate with a revivification, it becomes practically impossible for someone to forgive.
Therefore, in severe instances a person’s inability to forgive is much like any other...
