Abstract

Acrophobia, is a psychological problem that is in the category of specific phobias, which leads to the deterioration of the functioning of the individual in business and social life. Exposure, which is one of the most basic techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is the most useful technique use in the treatment of acrophobia. This technique suggests that exposure to the feared subject and / or object of the person become more likely to control the anxiety as a result of the familiarization and extinction of the anxiety.  This technique can be applied in three ways: In vitro, in vivo and virtual reality. The aim of this article is to provide information on the exposure with the virtual reality and to compile the researches on its effectiveness in acrophobia treatment.

Abstract

Sports genetics studies are gaining importance day by day and the kind of exercise that athletes are prone to can be determined as a result of these studies. In our study, we aimed to analyze the rs4680 polymorphism of the Catechol-O-Methyltransferase (COMT) gene, which plays an important role in the development of athletic performance, in swimmers and young national ski runners and to compare them with the sedentary individuals. 24 swimmers, 19 ski runners and 45 sedentary individuals were enrolled for the study. Buccal cells were collected with the help of the collector swap and DNA isolations were made by using a commercially available isolation kit. Genotyping was completed by Real Time polymerase chain reaction. Comparison of variables between groups was performed by chi-square test. According to the results, AG and GG genotype distributions were found as 28 (% 65,11) and 15 (% 34,88), respectively, in sports group. For sedentary individuals, the respective numbers of AA, AG, and GG genotypes were 4 (%8,88), 24 (%53,33) and 17 (%37,77). No statistically significant difference was determined in the terms of genotypes. When we consider the allelic distributions, in athletes, A allele was counted as 28 (32,55) and G allele as 58 (67,44). For the sedentary group, A allele was counted as 32 (%35.55) and G allele as 58 (%64.44). For the alleles, we detected no significant difference between athletes and sedentary group. COMT rs4680 polymorphism plays an active role in the metabolism of dopamine and is an important genetic marker in determining athletic performance. To support our findings, more studies including the related polymorphisms are needed.

Abstract

Conventional machine learning algorithms are widely used in the processing and classification of biomedical data in the literature. However, in recent years, it becomes a necessity to use a multi-layered learning network due to the increase in the resolution and quantity of the data. The concept of deep learning comprises the whole set of applications that separate sub-classes with high performance, especially in the case of the existence of multi-dimensional data and insufficient human-decision making processes. These methods have the ability to examine the inter-departmental interactions of data in depth. Deep learning is superior to conventional machine learning methods because too many observational data are learned based on increasingly complex patterns. In addition, when the data size is enhanced, superiority difference over conventional machine learning methods is remarkably increased.

Electroencephalography (EEG) data can be expressed in high-dimensional, complex and spatial domains. It is suitable for analysis using deep learning-based networks as they have the potential to work with large datasets. Deep learning models developed for the analysis of EEG signals are expected to automate many repetitive cognitive tasks.

This review article covers the general introduction of deep learning architectures used in the field of biomedical and neuroscience, the applications of these architectures on EEG-based analytical tasks, possible difficulties encountered and possible solutions. As a result of a detailed study, it has been seen that deep learning methods extract complex patterns in the clinical or cognitive data and present a strong method to determine the abstract relationships between different types of data.

This study addresses the needs of deep learning-based applications in clinical practice and neuroscientific research and aims to provide researchers with an overview of the deep learning-based analysis methodology of EEG signals and potential challenges in future research.

Abstract

Purpose In this study, we investigate association of biological rhythm impairment with levels of anxiety, depression and dream anxiety and other sociodemographic correlates of Baskent University medical students.

Methods 193 students who accepted to participate in the study from Baskent University School of Medicine Grades 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, were enrolled to our study.  Participants were administered the Beck Anxiety Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory, Dream Anxiety Scale, Biological Rhythm Scale and Sociodemographic Data Form.

Results Participants’ biological rhythm (impairment) scores were found to be significantly associated with the Dream Anxiety Scale, Beck Depression Inventory and Beck Anxiety Inventory scores. Female students were found to have higher biological rhythm, activity rhythm, sleep rhythm, anxiety and dream anxiety scores, which means that they have higher anxiety levels and more impaired biological rhythms. Students who drowse in the lectures were found to have higher sleep, activity, social and dominant rhythm patterns with higher levels of dream anxiety and Beck Depression Inventory scores as well.

Conclusions Biological rhythm impairment is related to dream anxiety, anxiety and increased depression levels. Smoking, alcohol consumption and having pet are factors negatively effecting biorhythms and increasing dream anxiety in medical students. Drowsing during the lectures is a common complaint of medical students and can be a sign of irregularity in the biological rhythms and psychiatric disorders like anxiety and depression as well. Encouraging medical students for having more regular biorhythms can help them ensuring their own mental health.

Abstract

Throughout the history, intoxications are among the issues that concern society closely. Each substance can carry a poisonous property in accordance with the following quote of Paracelsus:” All things are poisons for there is nothing without poisonous qualities. It is only the dose which makes a thing poison. Developments that have occurred in the last half of the twentieth century have offered the use of many drugs that are effective yet harmful. In this study,  Patients with suicide attempt that applied to the S.B.U Gazi Yaşargil Training and Research Hospital emergency department  between January 2013 and July 2018 were retrospectively reviewed.890 patients were included in the study. Groups were determined to determine whether patients had a history of psychiatric diagnosis before suicide attempt, genders and marital status were effective in suicide attempts. Patients whose archive information could not be reached and patients with incomplete information were not included in the research.

  Pearson Chi-Square test was used to compare categorical variables.Quantitative variables were shown as mean ± SD (Standard Deviation) whereas categorical variables were shown as n (%).P value less than 0.05 was considered significant.
