    Dr. Mark D. Shen (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) discusses the trajectory of brain development in infants at risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and fragile X syndrome.  Longitudinal imaging was captured from 6 to 24 months to see how brain development differed between groups, and the development of the amygdala in infants at risk for ASD prior to onset of social deficits and clinical diagnosis.

    April 2022: Effects of County-Level Opioid Dispensing Rates on Individual-Level Patterns of Prescription Opioid and Heroin Consumption: Evidence From National U.S. Data

    Dr. Brian Kelly (Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana) discusses a study that found recent efforts to curb opioid prescriptions appear to have had an effect on reducing prescription opioid misuse and dependence, with no evidence that shifts in local-level opioid dispensing affected odds of heroin use, frequency of heroin use, or heroin dependence. Afterwards, Journal Editor-in-Chief Dr. Ned Kalin discusses what pulls the March issue of AJP together.

Great Podcast

Everything about the podcast was amazing, the evidence is all there and so are the questions, however they did a marvelous job for the transitions of the podcast. Overall it was great and I hope to keep up with it

Manlove50 ,

Appreciate the podcasts.

I have a 44 y.o. son with schizoaffective disorder and it is a challenge to be an effective parent
Any practical physician advice to someone in this circumstance is greatly appreciated. I am a nurse practitioner but psychiatry is not my specialty

It’s helpful to listen to practicing psychiatrists discuss medication and side effects.
Keep up your good work!

June podcast

Devoid of meaningful content. Really a striking contrast from the interview w Dr Kendler, who was eloquent and informative. This one was full of jargon a missed opportunity to something insightful and specific about structural racism.
