Abstract:

This study was carried out to investigate the impact of behavioral ambivalences of both maternal and paternal parent communities during and aft er inter-communal confl icts on mixed anxiety- depressive disorders in young adults of bicommunal families. Th e problem is that young adults of bi-cultural parents are prohibited from going to war against their maternal community yet members of both communities still reject these young adults, treating them with love and hate. Th is study employed the Double Bind Th eory. Two hypotheses set for the study were:(H1;) Protection-rejection behavior of paternal community and :(H2) Protection-rejection behavior of the maternal community during and aft er inter-communal confl icts determines anxiety- depressive disorders among young adults born of inter-communal families. A sample of 10 Oku, 10 Mesa, 10 mixed Oku-mesas’ and 10 mixed mesas’-Oku young adults were selected. Aft er passing the HADS test, 03 mixed participants with highest scores were given clinical interviews. From the scores on the thematic content analysis, results showed that the three participants were victims of ambivalent behaviors (6/6, 5/6, 5/6 respectively) and positive for mixed anxiety-depression disorder (5/9, 7/9, 7/9 respectively). Th is suggests that ambivalent behaviors of parent communities during the confl icts infl uenced mixed anxiety-depression disorder among young adults of mixed families. Th erefore with cultures and traditions as major triggers, confl icting demands from children of bi-cultures during war can provoke mixed anxiety-depression.

Abstract:

The poster presentation is based on a research of how religion impacts mental health. Th e positive and negative eff ects of belief on emotional well-being. Th e purpose is to share my research report and to open up a discussion of how people view religion when it comes to their emotional health. Th e idea is to shift  the way neuropsychiatric illnesses like depression and anxiety are Perceived and treated from strictly analyzing chemicals to a more holistic approach that looks at person's unique genetic makeup and life style. In the past 25 years, we have learned a tremendous Amount about the mechanisms in the brain that regulate emotional behavior. We can track the eff ects of diff erent medicines on the brain and then their short comings when it comes to patients who Are treatment resistant. As science continues to advance, America's biopharmaceutical companies are working to develop medicines these diseases into manageable conditions. Researchers are studying biomarkers and the ways current medicines impact the pathology of the brain. Despite that progress, far too mny people still suff er with mental illness in silence, while too many other seek treatment only to fi nd insuffi  cient remedies. It is time to think outside the box to bring the balance back in life

Abstract:

Antidepressants are prescribed commonly in depression therapy in the pharmaceutical methods; however, the long term administration time which is approximately 10 to 20 days and the unpleasant side eff ects are still accompanied during the medication therapy. Consequently, the full profi le of the medicinal chemistry of the antidepressants is discussed for an ideal structure in drug affi  nity. Antidepressants can be divided into diff erent types that depend on diff erent neurotransmitters as a target to serve as reuptake inhibitors. Furthermore, antidepressants can be categorized into (SSRIs) selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and (SNRIs) selective norepinephrine selective reuptake inhibitors. Th e structure activity relationship of antidepressants is the goal in this project to explore the full profi le of specifi c structure in binding affi  nity and specifi city. A better view of the structure in antidepressants is benefi cial to establish a highly potent and precise antidepressant design. Halogens are found common in the antidepressants compound for the purpose of drug affi  nity. Especially, the fl uorine atom will serve as hydrogen bond acceptors that contribute to a high affi  nity in protein-ligand interaction, particularly in association with O-H or N-H group in the binding protein. Both the fl uoxetine and paroxetine contains fl uorine as the substituted group. However, the position matters when it comes to the affi  nity that the substituted group in fl uoxetine occupy only 4’-position while paroxetine occupies both 4’- and 3’-position on the aryloxy ring that proposes the spatial confi guration of the substitution group is signifi cant. Furthermore, the fl uoxetine contains trifl uoromethyl group on the phenolic rings in the Para-position exhibit 6-fold potency in SSRI activity compared to its parent non-fl uorinated structure.  In summary, a more clear direction in the development of antidepressants can be suggested to be related to both the types and positions of substituents on the aromatic rings.  Mostly, these antidepressants are not only treated to depression disorder but also can be used in other health condition such as NRIs in chronic pains and ADHD. Hence, an outcome of improved effi  cacy in terms of its specifi city and potency of antidepressants can benefi t people to overcome the healthy condition and provide a more profi le in the drug design
