Objective: The aim of the present study was to analyze the body sway response in specific phobia (SP) patients and healthy controls while viewing neutral, phobic, and disgusting images. Methods: The participants’ heart rate (HR) and skin conductance were also recorded during the procedure. Nineteen patients with arachnophobia and 19 healthy volunt...

Objective: Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the non-psychotomimetic compounds of Cannabis sativa, causes anxiolytic-like effects in animals, with typical bell-shaped dose-response curves. No study, however, has investigated whether increasing doses of this drug would also cause similar curves in humans. The objective of this study was to compare the acut...

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a component of Cannabis sativa that has a broad spectrum of potential therapeutic effects in neuropsychiatric and other disorders. However, few studies have investigated the possible interference of CBD on the sleep-wake cycle. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a clinically anxiolytic dose of CBD on the...
Chapter
The plant Cannabis sativa, known as marijuana, is composed of more than 60 cannabinoids, which may have different effects on the sleep-wake cycle. The two main components of the plant are Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for psychoactive effects, and cannabidiol (CBD), the main component of the plant that does not have psychologi...

Experiential Avoidance (EA) is an attempt to avoid contact with aversive private events or correlated stimuli that might evoke or elicit them. The present research investigated the correlation between an explicit measure of EA, the AAQ-II, and an implicit measure, based on the Implicit Relational Assessment Procedure (IRAP). After responding to the...
Article
Full-text available
The present study aimed to investigate whether two experiential avoidance measures, the AAQ-II and an IRAP, would predict the participant’s performance during an avoidance task. The procedure consisted of three phases: (1) answering questionnaires (including the AAQ-II); (2) responding an IRAP developed to assess EE; (3) responding to an avoidance...
Article
According to Relational Frame Theory (RFT) Crel denotes a contextual stimulus that controls a particular type of relational response (sameness, opposition, comparative, temporal, hierarchical etc.) in a given situation. Previous studies suggest that contextual functions may be indirectly acquired via transfer of function. The present study investig...

Background Among non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), anxiety occurs in up to 67% of patients. Clinically, PD patients report worsening of tremors in anxiogenic situations. Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between motor symptoms and anxiety in PD patients and compare their performances with those of health...

Background Secondary interventions are implemented within a short interval following the occurrence of traumatic events with the purpose of preventing the onset of PTSD. Objective Analyze the results of studies that assessed post-trauma interventions in adults aimed at preventing the onset of PTSD or symptoms related to PTSD. Methods We performed...

The absence of the adhesio interthalamica (AI; also called interthalamic adhesion or massa intermedia) and the presence of a large cavum septum pellucidum (CSP) later in life have been related to neurodevelopmental alterations and have not been systematically investigated in epilepsy to date. This study carried out a MRI evaluation of the AI and CS...

The current study aimed to test the effect of behavior therapy training on the assessment of self-forgiveness, focusing on the feelings or outcomes that may be associated with failing and succeeding in everyday life, using 2 Implicit Relational Assessment Procedures (IRAPs) that had been developed across a series of previously published studies. Ad...

Specific phobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by irrational fear and avoidance of specific things or situations, interfering significantly with the patients' daily life. Treatment for the disorder consists of both pharmacological and psychological approaches, mainly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Neuroimaging techniques have been used i...
Article
There is a lack of consistent neuroimaging data on specific phobia (SP) and a need to assess volumetric and metabolic differences in structures implicated in this condition.
Article
We investigated the hypothesis that rimonabant, a cannabinoid antagonist/inverse agonist, would increase anxiety in healthy subjects during a simulation of the public speaking test. Participants were randomly allocated to receive oral placebo or 90 mg rimonabant in a double-blind design. Subjective effects were measured by Visual Analogue Mood Scal...

Background: Depression is the most common psychiatric manifestation in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). In addition, depressive symptoms may be considered to be a prodromal manifestation of PD. In recent years, the association between PD and depression has been the focus of neuroimaging studies using functional and structural techniques. M...
Article
The presence of a chronic medical illness is a risk factor for psychological distress, such as anxiety symptoms and even anxiety disorders. Besides, anxiety disorders are usually described as an interaction of somatic symptoms and subjective signs, which enhances the importance of the study and better understanding about how those factors are relat...

Specific phobia (SP) is characterized by irrational fear associated with avoidance of specific stimuli. In recent years, neuroimaging techniques have been used in an attempt to better understand the neurobiology of anxiety disorders. The objective of this study was to perform a systematic review of articles that used neuroimaging techniques to stud...
