Charles Nemeroff and colleagues review the genetics, epigenetics, biomarkers, treatment response and environmental factors of mood disorders and schizophrenia, and describe the impact of neuroimaging on personalized medicine in psychiatry.
Peter de Jonge and colleagues argue that, although there is a link between coronary heart disease (CHD) and depression, this association is confounded by heterogeneity, such that depression is a non-causal risk factor CHD.
Kenneth Freedland and Robert Carney argue that depression predicts coronary heart disease (CHD) but better methods are required to ascertain whether depression is a causal risk factor for CHD, which could help determine treatment strategies for CVD prevention.
Consequences of depression include somatic diseases, such as obesity and cardiovascular disease; Brenda Penninx and colleagues review the biological pathways and their dysregulation between depressive symptoms and somatic health, and describe the therapeutic implications.
Adult neural stem cells extracted from the olfactory bulb of diabetic rats can be cultured in vitro and show similar gene expression profiles to hippocampal neural stem cells during diabetes progression.

News and events
Journal of Molecular Psychiatry, a new journal edited by Professor Johannes Thome, has now published its first articles with BioMed Central. The journal publishes scientific work focusing on the elucidation of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders and disseminates state-of-the-art research focusing on psychiatric conditions, their diagnosis, therapy and prevention.
Journal of Eating Disorders, a new BioMed Central journal is now accepting submissions. Edited by Professor Phillipa Hay and Professor Stephen Touyz, this journal aims to disseminate research that provides answers to the important issues and key challenges in the field of eating disorders, and to facilitate translation of evidence into practice.
Acta Neuropathologica Communications, a new BioMed Central journal, edited by Werner Paulus is now accepting submissions. The journal publishes experimental and descriptive papers on the pathology of nervous system and skeletal muscle disorders and on mechanisms of neurological disease using morphological, molecular and cell biology methods. This is the sister journal to Acta Neuropathologica, published by Springer, which is also edited by Werner Paulus.
