A study, published recently in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine may have found an antidote to heartbreak -- forgiveness combined with acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol.
In 1988, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck near the northern Armenian city of Spitak. The temblor destroyed cities and is estimated to have killed between 25,000 and 35,000 people, many of whom were schoolchildren. The latest findings from a long-term, UCLA-led study reveal that children who survived the quake and received psychotherapy soon after have experienced health benefits into adulthood.
A new study published in Science suggests new therapeutic avenues for PTSD patients, after researchers explored the brainq of victims of the November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.
In a study published today researchers propose that changing states of mind are holistic in that they exert all-encompassing and coordinated effects simultaneously on our perception, attention, thought, affect, and behavior. They provide evidence and a framework for the concept of SoM, proposing a unifying principle for the underlying cortical mechanism whereby SoM is determined. This novel global account gives rise to unique hypotheses and opens new horizons for understanding the human mind.

The research was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), part of the National Institutes of Health.
