Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper discusses the current practice of using single word labels for emotional states that ignore the nature of the incentive, cognitive representations, physiologic profile, and especially the developmental stage of the agent. The universal cognitive advances that are derivatives of brain maturation over the first dozen years are accompanied by significant emotional states that infants and young children cannot experience. The cognitive transitions at the end of the first year, the middle of the second year, 5–7 years and early adolescence have special implications for affect states.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Compared to healthy controls, men with recent onset psychosis (ROP) have reduced anterior N100 amplitude, enhanced left temporal and frontal N200 amplitude and reduced left temporal and posterior P300 amplitude. Insight/judgement (IJ), rapport and depression are negatively associated with N200 amplitude implicating executive mechanisms. Reduced N200 amplitude in higher-depression ROP contrasts enhanced N200 in major depression, suggesting aetiological differences for depression between diagnoses. However, lower right anterior N200 in high-depression ROP is consistent with subclinical depression in healthy men. The relationship between right anterior N200 and depression in ROP did not persist after controlling for IJ. Thus, a contribution of intact IJ to depression in ROP is supported.
Psychomotor poverty is associated with reduced N100 amplitude. Lower left P300 is associated with total psychopathology. Various mechanisms found abnormal in ROP are also implicated in paranormal ideation (PI) including enhanced anterior N200 and reduced left- and anterior- P300 amplitude. However, in contrast to ROP, high-PI is associated with enhanced N100 amplitude which may represent a compensatory mechanism protecting against the onset of psychosis. On the other hand, paranoia/suspiciousness (PS) is associated with reduced anterior N100 and enhanced N200 in healthy men, but not women, supporting an association between PS and mechanisms implicated in negative symptoms. Results suggest the existence of a continuum of psychosis which is further supported by observed sex differences in the ERP-personality relationship reflective of those previously reported in schizophrenia. PI and PS may represent distinct risk factors for psychosis.

Mother-to-infant emotional involvement at birth
Publication year: 2009

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18317894
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives - To study mother-to-infant emotional involvement at birth, namely factors (socio-demographics, previous life events, type of delivery, pain at childbirth, support from partner, infant characteristics, early experiences with the newborn, and mother's mood) that interfere with the mother's positive, negative and not clear emotions toward the newborn.
Methods - The Bonding Scale (an extended Portuguese version of the 'New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale') and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale were administrated during the first after delivery days to 315 mothers recruited at Júlio Dinis Maternity Hospital (MJD, Porto, Portugal).
Results - A worse emotional involvement with the newborn was observed when the mother was unemployed, unmarried, had less than grade 9, previous obstetrical/psychological problems or was depressed, as well as when the infant was female, had neonatal problems or was admitted in the intensive care unit. Lower total bonding results were significantly predicted when the mother was depressed and had a lower educational level; being depressed, unemployed and single predicted more negative emotions toward the infant as well. No significant differences in the mother-to-infant emotional involvement were obtained for events related to childbirth, such as type of delivery, pain and partner support, or early experiences with the newborn; these events do not predict mother's bonding results either.
Conclusion - The study results support the need for screening and supporting depressed, unemployed and single mothers, in order to prevent bonding difficulties with the newborn at birth.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
With the aim of studying anxiety, depression and prenatal emotional involvement with the infant, 87 primiparous women had fulfilled the Portuguese version of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale. High levels of anxious and depressive symptoms as well of emotional involvement with the infant were found. Anxiety seems to activate mother’s negative emotions toward the infant, but depressive symptoms account the more for the presence of not clear emotions and poor attachment to the infant.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.

Mother’s Stress, Mood and Emotional Involvement with the Infant: 3 months before and after childbirth

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Adverse effects of maternal anxiety and depression are well documented, namely on the foetus/child behaviour and development, but not as much attention has been given to the mother's emotional involvement with the offspring. To study mother's prenatal and postpartum stress, mood and emotional involvement with the infant, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and the Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale were filled in and cortisol levels were measured, 3 months before and 3 months after childbirth, in a sample of 91 Portuguese women. From pregnancy to the postpartum period, mother's cortisol levels, anxiety and emotional involvement toward the child decrease. No significant change was observed regarding mother's depression. Mother's depression predicted a worse emotional involvement before childbirth, while mother's anxiety predicted a worse emotional involvement with the infant after childbirth. Additionally, pregnant women with a worse emotional involvement with the offspring are at risk of poorer emotional involvement with the infant and higher anxiety and depression at 3 months postpartum. It should be given more attention to mother's poor emotional involvement with the offspring during pregnancy, as it interferes with her emotional involvement with the infant and her psychological adjustment 3 months after childbirth.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Two improved versions of a TMS coil designed for stimulation of deep neuronal structures, the new H1 and H2 coils, were built and tested for safety on 31 normal volunteers. Treatments were conducted with H1-coil, H2-coil, Standard (superficial) figure-8 coil and Sham coil at 1, 10 and 20 Hz. Analysis of short clinical assessments protocols and additional safety measurements revealed that TMS stimulation was well tolerated with no major side effects. Overall, the changes were not differential for the four treatment groups and no evidence was found for a possible deterioration in cognitive performance due to the TMS treatments. In some tests transient cognitive improvement were observed, but only with deep TMS.
The H-coils were then used in a clinical study to test for effectiveness and safety on 50 depressed patients, who received daily TMS treatment 5 days per week for 4 consecutive weeks. Stimulation with these coils was well tolerated, with no major side effects or adverse physical outcomes. Compared with the value prior to the start of TMS therapy, 31.3 ± 5.0, the average HAM-D scale dropped significantly to 16.2 ± 9.9 on the day after completion of the therapy. There was no significant difference between the coils, but the H1 coil tended to induce greater antidepressant effects. The CANTAB performed before, during and after the study indicated selective improvement in cognitive functions, especially spatial memory and executive function.
We also showed, using computer models, that an effective way to improve the performance of the H-coils is to combine them with iron cores. Their presence contributes to an overall increase in stimulus intensity in the vicinity of the core, which is more pronounced in deep regions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
To design and test new coils for transcranial magnetic stimulation of deep brain structures. Efficient stimulation of structures such as the nucleus accumbens and other limbic regions is necessary for the successful application of TMS in psychiatry.
METHODS:
TMS coils specially designed for deep stimulation (H1 and H2 coils) were tested on 31 normal subjects and on 50 drug resistant patients suffering from major depression. Numerical methods were used to predict the electric field induced by these coils and to investigate ways to improve their performance.
RESULTS:
In normal subjects rTMS stimulation at 1, 10 or 20 Hz was well tolerated with no major side effects. Auditory thresholds measured by audiograms indicated no hearing loss of any of the subjects. No evidence was found for a possible deterioration in cognitive performance due to rTMS. No epileptic convulsions were experienced.
TMS treatment 5 days per week for 4 consecutive weeks was well tolerated by the depressed subjects, with no major side effects or adverse physical outcomes. The average HAM-D scale dropped significantly from 31.3 ± 5.0 prior to TMS to 16.2 ± 9.9 on the day after completion of therapy. There was no significant difference between the coils, however the H1 coil tended to induce greater antidepressant effects. The CANTAB performed before, during and after the study indicated selective improvement in cognitive functions, especially spatial memory and executive function.
Numerical calculations based on 3D models of the H1 and H2 coils placed over the head phantom produced results in good agreement with measured values. Clear improvements in coil performance (stimulus intensity, depth and focality) were predicted only when iron cores were added to the coils.
CONCLUSIONS:
The safety and effectiveness of the novel H1 and H2 coils were demonstrated. The use of high permeability cores is the best way to improve the performance of these coils.

Religiosity and personal beliefs in OCD and anxiety disorders
Publication year: 2011

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background
In the last decades the relationship between religiosity/spirituality (R/S), personal beliefs and mental health has been extensively studied, indicating a significant correlation of these variables. However, the specific relation of R/S to anxiety disorders has been less investigated.
Objective
The objective of this prospective study is the investigation of the relation of R/S, magical ideation (MI) and paranormal beliefs (PB) to anxiety disorders in general and OCD in particular, in order to specifically determine a possible impact of these variables on psychopathology scores. In addition, the relation between R/S, PB and MI can be systematically investigated.
Design & method
Unselected samples with OCD and other anxiety disorders have been equally assessed within the first week after admission with a face-to-face interview including the following instruments: MINI, HAMD, HAMA and Y-BOCS, OCI-R, STAI, Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiosity/Spirituality, Magical Ideation Scale and Revised Paranormal Beliefs Scale. Forty healthy participants with no psychiatric history served as controls.
Results
Groups did not differ in any aspect of R/S, MI, or PB. Almost all scales referring to R/S, PB and MI were positively correlated to each other. The results showed a strong positive correlation between high scores of negative religious coping and high psychopathology scores in depression and anxiety. On the other hand, there was a significant positive correlation between MI scores and initial OCD and anxiety scores.
Conclusion
This study verifies a significant correlation between personal beliefs and psychopathology in OCD and anxiety disorders. Implications for further research are discussed.

Massaging premature infants: Effects on mothers and fathers
Publication year: 2010

http://icis2010.isisweb.org/schedule/searchview2.cfm?author=10512
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our aim was to study the impact of a massage protocol on the symptomatology and involvement of mothers and fathers with their preterm offspring admitted in the NICU. The specific goal was to study how the massage interfered in this relationship, as well as with other type of symptomatology, such as depression, anxiety.
We decided to study this subject because in 2005 6,55% (7174) were born with less than 37 weeks and 0,88% (966) with less than 31 weeks; 7,5% (8209) weighed less than 2500g and 0,9% (1012) less than 1550g (INE, 2008), all of which are admitted to the NICU.
PARTICIPANTS:
20 mothers and 20 fathers that had a preterm baby with less than 34 weeks and/or 1500g admitted to Júlio Dinis Maternity, Oporto Hospital Centre between July 2007 and December 2008.
INSTRUMENTS:
-EPDS - Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
-STAI - Stait Trait Anxiety Inventory
-Bonding
PROCEDURE:
We assessed them in two stages: in the NICU they were asked for informed consent and given various questionnaires to answer – EPDS, STAI, and Bonding.
A month later they were assessed again, using the same instruments from stage one.
RESULTS:
Taking this into consideration that our sample is not yet complete, the gender difference between subjects is not significant [F(3,9)=1,34;p=0,31] and either is the temporal variation between both moments [F(3,9)=1,65;p=0,23]. The interaction between times and gender was also not significant [F(3,9)=1,56;p=0,25], which shows that both men and women behave similarly.
Between the first and second moment there were no significant differences in the STAI [F(1)=1,17;p=0,30], the EPDS [F(1)=3,14;p=0,10], the Bonding [F(1)=2,27;p=0,15] and the RQ [F(1)=3,24;p=0,09]. This also applies to the differences between gender, where STAI [F(1)=1,68;p=0,22], EPDS [F(1)=2,62;p=0,13], Bonding [F(1)=3,10;p=0,10] and RQ [F(1)=1,92;p=0,19] not significant.
CONCLUSION:
Our general our hypothesis was confirmed – over time the depressive and anxious symptoms decrease, although not significantly for now.
The BONDING shows interesting results, while in the women it decreases over time, in the men it increases. This can be explained because of the time the baby in admitted in the NICU.

Term and pre-term parents - Why are they different?
Publication year: 2010
URL:
http://icis2010.isisweb.org/schedule/searchview2.cfm?author=10512
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our aim was to study the differences between preterm and term parents, considering their symptomatology, such as anxiety and depression, as well as their relationship with their newborn and their spouse.
SAMPLE:
60 mothers of pre-term babies were recruited at the Neonatal Care Unit in a Maternity Hospital in Oporto, Portugal. Later, these mothers were paired with mothers of 60 term babies, recruited in the same hospital after delivery, considering their level of education and their baby’s sex as pairing variables. The fathers were also included in the study (n=107).
INSTRUMENTS:
-EPDS - Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale
-STAI - Stait Trait Anxiety Inventory
-Bonding
-Relationship Questionnaire
PROCEDURE:
Both groups were assessed when the baby was clinically stable and able their parents able to participate and answer the questionnaires included in this study. The sample was recruited during July 2007 and July 2008.
RESULTS:
Our purpose was to assess the differences between the pre-term and term group regarding STAI, EPDS and RQ sub-scales. There are significant differences in the STAI [F(3,985) = 37,15 and 34,24, p = .047] and the negative sub-scale of the RQ [F(4,054) = 1,96 and 2,03, p = .045].
We can also observe that there are statistical differences in the STAI [F(9,537) = 37,70 and 33,44, p = .002] and EPDS [F(17,133] = 6,79 and 4,42, p = .000] when mothers and fathers are compared. However, this does happen with the RQ in the positive [F(0,663) = 3,62 and 2,05, p = .42] and negative sub-scale [F(0,300] = 2,01 and 2,05, p = .58]
The second aim was to see if there were differences between the mothers in the pre-term and the term group as well as the fathers. Comparing the mothers, there are significant differences in the STAI [F(5,856] = 40,08 and 35,19, p = 0,017] and EPDS [F(3,789) = 5,96 and 7,58, p = 0,054). There were on the other hand no significant differences regarding the positive [F(0,205) = 3,64 and 3,60, p = .651] and negative [F(1,751) = 1,95 ad 2,08, p = .188] sub-scale of the RQ.
However, there were no statistically significant differences in any of the father’s variables, showing that they behave alike whether they are in the pre-term or term group.

Hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and clinical symptoms in first-episode psychosis
Publication year: 2011
URL:
http://www.psyneuen-journal.com/article/PIIS030645301100268X/abstract?rss=yes
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Abnormalities in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity have been reported in patients with psychosis, but it is still unclear how these are related to the clinical symptomatology. Inconsistent findings have emerged from previous studies on the association between cortisol levels and clinical symptoms. Methodological and/or clinical factors, such as patients' diagnosis or illness phase, might partially account for these inconsistencies. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between HPA axis activity and clinical symptoms in first-episode psychosis, taking into account diagnosis and illness phase.
METHOD:
Saliva samples were collected in 55 subjects with first-episode psychosis to assess the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) and diurnal cortisol levels (AUC-DAY). Severity of symptoms was assessed with the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS). Scores for subscales and symptom dimensions were used as predictors in multivariate analyses in different diagnostic subgroups and in clinically remitted patients. In addition, a systematic review of the literature on this topic was conducted.
RESULTS:
In subjects with schizophrenia (n=36), the CAR was predicted by the severity of positive symptoms (beta=0.47, p=0.04); in subjects with depressive psychoses (n=8) the CAR was predicted by excitement (beta=0.58, p=0.005), disorganization (beta=0.39, p=0.007) and depressive symptoms (beta=0.32, p=0.005). In patients with bipolar psychoses (n=11) AUC-DAY was predicted negatively by disorganization (beta=-2.82, p=0.009) and positively by excitement (beta=2.06, p=0.009) and positive symptoms (beta=1.28, p=0.02). In the sample in clinical remission (n=9), the CAR was associated with the severity of positive symptoms (beta=1.34, p=0.009) and, negatively, with excitement (beta=-1.05, p=0.04). The systematic review (on a total of 28 papers, including n=1022 patients), found that in patients with psychosis cortisol levels have been associated with the severity of multiple symptom dimensions.
CONCLUSIONS:
HPA axis activity is associated with the severity of multiple types of symptoms in first-episode psychosis. Patients' diagnosis and clinical phase partially influence these associations.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Vários trabalhos têm salientado a vulnerabilidade psicológica do jovem adulto, principalmente no que respeita a sintomas depressivos e ansiosos, bem como a importância de estratégias promotoras do seu bem-estar para o sucesso académico, psico-social e profissional. Nesse âmbito, o presente trabalho pretende caracterizar os níveis de ansiedade e depressão numa amostra de estudantes universitários. Igualmente pretende conhecer os traços de personalidade que os caracterizam e como se associam àqueles indicadores psicológicos. Utilizou-se uma amostra de 260 alunos da Universidade de Aveiro (102 do sexo masculino), com idades compreendidas entre os 18 e os 64 anos, que responderam ao Inventário de Traço Depressivo, à sub-escala de traço do Inventário Estado-Traço de Ansiedade, e ao Questionário de Personalidade de Eysenck. Os alunos do sexo feminino mostraram níveis superiores de neuroticismo e ansiedade e inferiores de psicoticismo comparativamente aos do sexo masculino.
A idade associou-se negativamente à sintomatologia depressiva e níveis de neuroticismo. Os alunos de Mestrado revelam maiores níveis de neuroticismo, enquanto os alunos de Ciências Sociais revelam maiores índices de psicoticismo comparativamente com alunos de psicologia e educação. Todos os traços de personalidade se associaram à sintomatologia depressiva e níveis de ansiedade, mas só o neuroticismo e extroversão foram preditores significativos destes valores. Estes dados sugerem que a presença de determinados traços de personalidade pode predispor à manifestação de sintomatologia ansiosa e depressiva, sendo variáveis a ter em conta no contexto académico, o que realça a importância do desenvolvimento e implementação de técnicas e estratégias preventivas de promoção para a saúde.

The (un)pleasant intensity of taste: a glimpse into obesity
Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The relevance of orosensory factors for the pathophysiology of obesity were suggested by the report of changes in taste sensitivity in obese patients, after gastric bypass surgery. However, it is unclear if such changes are specific to this intervention. Here we report on taste intensity and pleasantness for sweet (sucrose), bitter (quinine), sour (citric acid) and salty (sodium chloride tastants, measured in severely obese patients, before and/or after a diet and exercise weight-loss program. Other measurements, such as the Beck Depression Scale, were also conducted. When compared to non-obese controls, we found that quinine and sucrose have a more intense and, respectively, unpleasant (bitter) or pleasant (sweet) taste in obese subjects. However, the effect for sweet taste seems to be, at least partially, dependent on the relationship between obesity and depression. Preliminary analyses in patients tested before and after weightloss further suggest that these taste changes are reversible. Additional experiments are now necessary to directly compare taste changes after surgical and behavioral weight-loss programs.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE - The neurobiology of clinical characteristics -in particular depression, insight and negative symptoms- in recent-onset psychosis (ROP) was studied using event-related potentials (ERPs).
METHODS - Twenty right-handed ROP men and 20 controls completed an auditory-oddball task. ROP men had minimum exposure to antipsychotic medication. N100, N200 and P300 were studied to ascertain the effects of (a) diagnosis (patients versus controls), and (b) clinical characteristics.
RESULTS - ROP men had significantly lower anterior N100, enhanced N200 at T3, and lower P300 at Pz than controls. Lower right-anterior N100 and enhanced right-anterior N200 amplitude explained 47.7% of negative symptoms. Left-central N100 amplitude explained 30.28% of negative symptoms. Lower left-posterior and higher right-posterior P300 amplitude explained 65.99% of total symptoms. Lower left-central N100, enhanced left-central N200 and depression explained 78.8% of impairments in insight and judgement. Impaired insight/judgement correlated positively with right-anterior N200 and was identified as the most significant co-efficient for depression.
CONCLUSIONS - Disturbed selective-attention and executive function indexed by N100 and N200, respectively, are associated with poor insight and negative symptoms. A complex interaction exists between insight and depression.
SIGNIFICANCE - The current results demonstrate a biological basis of insight and depression and a complex interaction between the two, perhaps mediated by executive function, in early psychosis.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Idiopathic nightmare disorder, which affects 2–8% of the population, is a distinct diagnostic category in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (2nd edition) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as well. However, the characteristic sleep profile of nightmare subjects (NMs) has rather
been under-researched. Our goal is to obtain a comprehensive picture of the sleep of NMs by means of spectral electroencephalographic (EEG) analyses which can provide valuable insights into the underlying pathophysiology.
METHODS:
Thirty-five university students without any prior history of mental or chronic somatic disease (17 NMs and 18 controls) went through standard two-night polysomnographic examination (with 19 EEG channels) in our sleep laboratory. Psychometric testing was also conducted including the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). EEG spectra were obtained by using Fast-Fourier Transformation of the second night recordings for rapid-eye movement (REM) and non-rapid eye-movement (NREM) sleep separately. We also computed the spectra of the first 4 sleep cycles distinctly in order to understand better sleep dynamics. To control the individual differences in the amplitude of power spectral
density, relative EEG spectra were calculated for 6 frequency bands (delta, theta, alpha, sigma, beta, gamma).
RESULTS:
Regarding all night data we compared the two groups by covariance analysis with STAI and BDI as covariates. The nightmare group was characterised by marginally (P < 0.10) lower frontal delta (1.25–4 Hz), as well as significantly (P < 0.05) higher fronto-central theta (4.25–7.5 Hz) and alpha (7.75–10.25 Hz) NREM activity compared to controls. The separate analysis of sleep cycles revealed that the reduced delta activity is characteristic for the 1st, while the increased theta for the 1st and the 4th sleep periods in NMs. Higher alpha activity was found mainly in the 4th sleep cycle.
CONCLUSIONS:
Our results provide evidence that NMs, even if they did not experience negative dreams, differ from controls in their sleep EEG spectra, mostly regarding NREM sleep. Lower delta activity indicates disrupted sleep which may be associated with impaired executive functions in NMs, whereas higher alpha activity in the 4th sleep cycle may be the sign of hyperarousal later in the night. Moreover, the covert REM sleep phenomena might explain the higher theta activity in NMs.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Sex differences for depression in prevalence and symptom profile may in part be due to differences between men and women in brain dysfunction associated with the disorder. Changes in event-related potential (ERP) measures similar to those seen in clinical populations are reported in subclinical or premorbid forms of depression. The current study investigates sex differences in ERPs associated with subclinical depression. One-hundred-and-forty healthy, right-handed adults (aged 20–60 years; screened to exclude clinical depression and psychosis) completed an auditory oddball task and the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS). Seventy (n=35 men) subclinically depressed (SD) (i.e. scoring >2 for depression on DASS) participants were matched for age and education with 70 (n=35 men) participants showing no signs of depression (ND). Repeated measures multivariate analysis of variance was used to test for differences in N200 and P300 amplitude between SD and ND groups. ND, but not SD groups had asymmetry (R>L) of central N200 amplitude. Similar asymmetry was seen in ND, but not SD men at posterior sites. SD groups demonstrated left>right posterior P300 amplitude asymmetry due to P300 enhancement at left temporoparietal sites. Results support involvement of various cognitive mechanisms measured by P300 and N200 in subclinical depressive symptoms some of which may rely on sex.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Our aim was to compare the effect of standard and cognitive hypnorelaxations on the psycho-neuro-immunological status in healthy stressed students (before-during examination term) and in chronic anxious patients. The patients (n=30, mean age: 47.5) and the students (n=20, mean age: 20.5) completed perceived stress and coping (Rahe), depression (BDI), hypnotizability (Harvard), trait and state anxiety (Spielberger) tests. Tensions of 7 muscles were measured by computer-assisted surface EMG. ACTH, cortisol and special immunological markers (LL-37, lactoferrin, sICAM-1, IL-6, galectin-3) were assayed in blood plasma. Biosamples were collected before and after one cognitive and two standard hypnorelaxations.
In students, significant decrease of ACTH level was detected after each hypnorelaxation session (p<0.05); only standard sessions were effective in downregulating cortisol level (p<0.01). Onset of the examination term enhanced muscle tension dramatically in students (p<0.0001). In patients, state anxiety score was significantly decreased after each hypnorelaxation (p<0.05), and cortisol was reduced after the cognitive (p<0.001) and the second standard (p<0.01) sessions. Interestingly, cognitive hypnorelaxation resulted in an increase of muscle tension (especially on the left side) both in students and in patients. Standard hypnorelaxation reduced muscle tension only in patients (p<0.01). No significant changes were seen in immunological markers. All in all, muscle tension scores appeared to be sensitive indicators of psychological stress in addition to stress hormones (ACTH, cortisol). Relaxed psychosomatic state seemed to be more facilitated by standard hypnorelaxation than by a cognitive coping one.
