Suicide evokes the image of a lonely, hopeless, deeply distressed person—nearly 80% are men—often influenced by alcohol or drugs, taking their lives following losses or disruptive life experiences. Younger persons’ suicides may be less contemplated but typically just as lonely and disconnected. Older persons, for whom planning is ...

To the Editor The study by Reger et al1 published in JAMA Psychiatry reported that deployment history was not associated with suicide death among military personnel who had deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. Their results converge with several previously published studies2,3 but contradict findings ...

In Reply We are grateful for Dr Bryan’s careful consideration of our article.1 His analysis was helpful in summarizing and emphasizing some points from our article. It was unclear whether he felt deployment history should not have been used as an exposure variable in our study or ...

The neuropsychiatric impact of World War I, World War II, and the Korean War was described in terms such as shell shock, neurasthenia, psychoneurosis, and battle fatigue. For the Vietnam generation, readjustment problems were initially attributed to alcohol or substance use, followed by growing ...

Importance  Individuals with schizophrenia can encode item-specific information to support familiarity-based recognition but are disproportionately impaired encoding interitem relationships (relational encoding) and recollecting information. The Relational and Item-Specific Encoding (RiSE) paradigm has been used to disentangle these encoding and retrieval processes, which may depend on specific medial ...

Importance  The long-term course of readjustment problems in military personnel has not been evaluated in a nationally representative sample.

This Neuroscience and Psychiatry article discusses the implications of relational memory deficits in schizophrenia and whether they are a reliable cognitive marker for the disease.

There is now strong and often replicated evidence from prospective longitudinal studies that psychopathology in childhood and adolescence robustly predicts psychopathology in adulthood.14 This evidence suggests a degree of specificity over time, such as childhood conduct disorder predicting adult antisocial personality, but also a considerable ...

Importance  Abnormalities in structural brain connectivity have been observed in patients with schizophrenia. Mapping these abnormalities longitudinally and understanding their genetic risk via sibship studies will provide crucial insight into progressive developmental changes associated with schizophrenia.

Importance  The rate of suicide attempts in the US Army increased sharply during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Research on this important health outcome has been hampered by the lack of integration among Army administrative data systems.

In Reply We appreciate the opportunity to comment on the points raised by Ruan et al and Dart et al. Starting with the latter, Dart et al replicated our findings and came to the same conclusion that we did: abuse-deterrent formulations (ADFs) of opioid drugs are quite effective ...

To the Editor It is with interest that we read the article “Abuse-Deterrent Formulations and the Prescription Opioid Abuse Epidemic in the United States: Lessons Learned From OxyContin” published in JAMA Psychiatry.1 Through their survey study, Cicero and Ellis1 concluded that abuse-deterrent formulations (ADFs) can ...

To the Editor Cicero and Ellis1 reported that 25% to 30% of individuals entering a group of substance abuse treatment centers endorse the reformulated OxyContin as a drug they had abused in the previous 30 days. Although Cicero and Ellis1 reported that the rate of endorsement ...

Importance  Patients with late-life schizophrenia (LLS) are highly susceptible to antipsychotic adverse effects. Treatment guidelines endorse lower antipsychotic doses. However, the optimal dose of antipsychotics and associated dopamine D2/3 receptor (D2/3R) occupancies remain largely unexplored in patients with LLS.

Objective  To evaluate effects ...

William T. Carpenter Jr, MD; Robert W. Buchanan, MD

Long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic medications are significantly underused. In light of their documented efficacy for treatment of psychotic symptoms and robust effect on relapse prevention, their relative lack of use is unfortunate. There are several reasons for this therapeutic neglect, including clinical settings where injections are not part ...
