  • Fearful Chickens and Worried Mice: Shared Genetic Influences on Anxiety | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    anxiety behaviors the researchers first crossed White Leghorn chickens with red junglefowl to create a population of hybrids The hybrid birds inherited a patchwork of gene variants from their chicken and junglefowl ancestors and they also varied widely in their anxiety levels during the open field test By comparing behavioral and genome data for each bird the team identified fifteen regions of the genome that contributed to the behavioral variation Each of these genome regions included many genes so the next step was to hone in on specific genes of interest The team narrowed the search by examining gene activity in the hypothalamus a region of the brain involved in regulating anxiety The researchers identified ten candidates for which heritable differences in hypothalamic gene activity were correlated with anxiety behaviors Six of the ten candidate genes have known functions related to behavior or brain function For example the gene ADAM10 is needed for proper formation of the brain during development and for protection against the brain amyloid plaques that form in certain neurodegenerative diseases It also influences learning and memory The researchers then tested whether these genes also influenced behavior in studies of mice and humans The mouse data came from a massive breeding experiment called the Mouse Heterogeneous Stocks cross which includes data from open field tests just like those used in the chicken study Four genes identified in the chicken data were also associated with anxiety in the mouse while three were associated with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder in large human genomic studies Although anxiety behaviors were not directly measured in the human studies the authors argue that results for other disorders may indirectly reveal links to anxiety For instance a large proportion of people with bipolar disorder have diagnosed anxiety disorders Complex overlaps may also exist between schizophrenia symptoms and anxiety behaviors Though we can t yet prove these genes have equivalent functions in chicken and humans the data certainly raises the intriguing possibility that genes controlling variation in behavior can be remarkably conserved between a whole variety of species said Wright Understanding the genetics underlying the chicken results may provide fundamental insights into animal behavior including normal behavioral variation in humans Source Genetics Society of America Tagged with anxiety behaviors brain genes mice LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Message First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email RELATED ARTICLES Hope and Harmony Headlines WINTER BLAHS January 27 2016 12 32 pm Winter blues winter blahs seasonal affective disorder call it what you want but for many of us the darker months of the year usher Brain connectivity outweighs genetics January 27 2016 12 25 pm Changes in Brain Connectivity Protect Against Developing Bipolar Disorder Newswise NEW YORK January 5th 2016 Naturally occurring changes in brain wiring can help My Blustery Bipolar ll World December 18 2015 12 01 am Break this bipolar circle please I love my family of origin Well most of

  • Helping Others Dampens the Effects of Everyday Stress | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    lower than usual helping behavior reported lower positive emotion and higher negative emotion in response to high daily stress Those who reported higher than usual levels of helping behavior on the other hand showed no dampening of positive emotion or mental health and a lower increase in negative emotion in response to high daily stress In other words helping behavior seemed to buffer the negative effects of stress on well being It was surprising how strong and uniform the effects were across daily experiences says Ansell For example if a participant did engage in more prosocial behaviors on stressful days there was essentially no impact of stress on positive emotion or daily mental health And there was only a slight increase in negative emotion from stress if the participant engaged in more prosocial behaviors The researchers note that additional studies will be necessary to determine whether the findings hold across ethnically and culturally diverse populations A particularly important avenue for future investigation the researchers say is to determine whether actively prompting people to engage in more helping behavior can further improve their mood and mental health This would help clarify whether prescribing prosocial behaviors can be used as a potential intervention to deal with stress particularly in individuals who are experiencing depressed mood or high acute stress Ansell concludes Source Tagged with Holidays kind nice Research stress 3 COMMENTS Franz January 7 2016 Reply Thought you might like this Tessa January 8 2016 Reply I have to say I agree with this article I find on days that I smile hold doors etc seem to affect my mood in a good way Though if the person doesn t smile back or say thank you if I hold the door it has the opposite effect Nina January 14 2016 Reply I just HAD to comment I suffer with bipo just as two of my cousins do We re all women in our 50 s were diagnosed 20 years ago Although it s extremely tiring for me to put on a happy face when I must leave the house I go overboard with my kindness to others Smiling chatting encouraging opening doors helping in any way I can but then coming home completely exhausted I want people in my life so very bad but find it too difficult to manage on most days However just reaching out on social media sites to my family old friends is amazingly uplifting I had no idea that others benefitted just as much as myself by doing the same I highly recommend making the smallest or largest effort to do the same Thank you LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Message First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email RELATED ARTICLES Hope and Harmony Stop signs coping with stress February 12 2016 1 47 pm There is a Goldilocks theory of stress actually called the Yerkes Dodson law that says just the right amount
