    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is both a diagnostic and a therapeutic tool for neurological diseases. Sleep disorders can be either a primary disease or the consequence of a different primary disease that disturbs sleep. Recent evidence indicates that TMS has a promising therapeutic effect in insomnia, restless legs syndrome and in sleep disturbances associated to epilepsy, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The parameters of the stimulation, as well as the specific cerebral area in which the stimulation should be applied, have not been accurately defined jet. Both the frequency and the intensity of stimulation seem to be critical to induce satisfactory therapeutic results. The use of TMS in sleep disorders opens the possibility to new non invasive therapeutic options in sleep medicine.

    Suicide is a tragic and costly yet preventable issue in public health that affects people of all races, ethnicities, ages, genders, and sexual orientation in the United States (U.S.) and worldwide. Over the years, suicide has remained the third leading cause of death for youths between 15-24 years of age in the U.S [1]. Suicide and self- inflicting injurious behaviors in LGBTQ adolescents are associated with mental health challenges that include lack of acceptance from peers, discrimination, family rejection, and school failure. The purpose of this article is to report current suicide statistics by demographics, discuss suicide risk and protective factors, and review prevention strategies and intervention efforts.

    Subjective memory complaints (SMCs) by some definitions are required to recognize Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Yet more studies demonstrate the association between SMCs and presence of depressive symptoms rather than objective cognitive impairment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of self-reported cognitive difficulties in reference to objective cognitive performance and presence of depressive and anxiety symptoms in cognitively normal and MCI subjects with 7 months follow-up. Cognitive complaints did not differentiate MCI from CN subjects. Subjective complaints regarding various aspects of cognition were significantly associated with symptoms of anxiety and depression in the studied sample. However, in the total sample subjects who declared cognitive decline after 7 months did score lower on short-term memory span test. The results support the linkage between subjective cognitive complaints, anxiety, and depressive symptoms in aging population. At the same time we cannot entirely refute the utility SCCs in diagnosis of cognitive impairment.

    In the early nineteenth century general paresis of the insane (GPI), also known as general paralysis or dementia paralytica, was described as a new psychiatric disorder. It soon became one of the most dreaded mental disorders. Large numbers of patients with GPI were admitted to mental hospitals in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The inevitable outcome of the disease was death within a short period of time. The cause of GPI was unknown until the late nineteenth century, and there was no effective treatment. The development of accurate diagnostic methods was introduced in the early twentieth century, and it was confirmed that GPI is a syphilitic disease. New effective treatment options eventually made GPI a rare diagnosis in psychiatry. Nowadays, GPI is an uncommon disease, but the history of the disorder and its treatment offers important historical lessons.
