    The current study presents a behavioral analysis of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and compares his behavior patterns at present with a previous study conducted in 1999.The analysis is based on the identification of recurring patterns of behavior (across time and situations) which emerge from the diverse material available to us: Netanyahu's statements, interviews, testimonies and interviews with various people who have worked with him. The salient results indicated the following: Netanyahu continues to see himself as superior to others and as a gifted politician; he loves the good life that status and power afford him such as luxurious hotels, high-class restaurants and fine food; Netanyahu uses manipulation to advance his goals and above all, to ensure his political survival; Netanyahu’s suspiciousness and sense of victimhood, according to which everyone is against him, continues; a salient point is his marked difficulty in making important decisions regarding the fundamental questions of the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; his ambition has been manifested by the will to stay at the top at any cost; he continues to perform as an articulate speaker with an outstanding ability to deliver messages. Netanyahu’s long-lasting term as prime minister has resulted in “fatigue”, expressed in part as an increase in suspicion, difficulty in standing up to the pressure, and problematic decision-making, with all that entails. Overall, the present study indicates that the patterns of behavior identified in the first study have been highly stable and that some of these patterns have been radicalized.

    Objective: To investigate rates of shared decision-making experienced by patients treated for major depression in Australia, examining impacts of side effect profiles, efficacy profiles, and cost on agent selection.
    Methods: An anonymized online structured survey was administered to patients self-reporting being diagnosed with major depression during the two-year period prior to survey.
    Results: 13% of the 207 patients surveyed felt they played an active role in treatment selection. Some 40% of patients reported that their doctor had not discussed treatment options with them, and that their doctor had selected their treatment without the patient feeling they had an active role.
    Conclusions: This qualitative retrospective patient survey suggests the majority of patients in the study sample did not feel they were actively involved in making decisions about their antidepressant medication. This finding suggests low levels of shared decision making. 1

    Depression in older adults is a major public health problem that has received an inadequate response from medical professionals. Symptoms of depression can differ from those of younger adults and be related to cognitive changes, physical health problems, and limited social interactions. Depression in older adults can be successfully prevented and treated. Treatment options include antidepressant medication, psychotherapy, and Neuromodulation therapies in cases of severe depression. Programs developed for the treatment of older adults with depression show positive results. Recommendations are offered to improve screening, assessment, and referral for appropriate treatment.
    Depression is a common mental disorder in the United States affecting children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. This article explores the relationship between aging and depression, focuses on symptoms of depression in older adults, examines types of treatment, and offers recommendations to screen, assess, and treat older adults. With the number of older adults expected to increase significantly in the United States in the coming years, it is of critical importance to address prevention and treatment of depression in older adults.

    Depression as a kind of mental illness affects huge number of population worldwide and is ranked as the fourth leading cause of disability worldwide, and is predicted to increase to the second place by 2020. Depression leads to great social burden because of its substantial impairment and disability in everyday activities. Though great efforts in previous decades have been made to understand this mental disease, to date, much still remains to be known about its pathophysiology, especially for the underlying neural circuit mechanisms. To better improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of this mental disorder, it is imperative and also very important to make more clarifications on the underlying neural circuitry mechanisms responsible for the occurrence of depression. Accordingly, here we briefly summarized some key studies pertaining to the neural circuits responsible for depression, and hopefully to shed some lights on the future studies concerning this annoying mental disorder.
