Abstract Individuals with autism and those with high subclinical autistic traits often report poor trait emotional intelligence (EI) and psychosocial outcomes. EI predicts resiliency in adolescents, however, the interrelationship between autistic traits, EI and resiliency is unknown. The Adolescent Swinburne University EI Test, Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ) and Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents were completed by 212 adolescents (193 males; 14–17 years). In line with previous studies...

Abstract Evidence suggests that enhanced oxidative stress and mild, chronic inflammation is associated with the onset and progression of some neurological disorders. Hypothesis A polyphenol rich sugarcane extract may be active in protecting against this inflammation and neurological degeneration. Study design A series of cell culture strains and in vitro gene expression studies were used to understand the neuroprotective activity. Methods Extract was prepared according to a patented extraction p...

Abstract Although inflammation has been associated with cognitive impairment in dementia, less is known about its role in the cognition of middle to older aged healthy people. This study utilised baseline data from the Australian Research Council Longevity Intervention (ARCLI) trial to investigate the relationship between markers of systemic inflammation (TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1β, INF-γ, IL-2, IL-4, IL-10 and hsCRP) and cognitive function in 286 healthy volunteers aged 60−75 years. We assessed cogniti...

Rationale Dysregulation of the one carbon cycle is documented in depression. Thereby, S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), a one–carbon cycle nutraceutical compound with a favourable side effect profile, has a theoretical rationale for efficacy. However, further controlled studies are required to confirm SAMe’s efficacy.

B vitamins are essential for optimal brain and body function, and are particularly important for cortical metabolic processes that have downstream effects on mitigating oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has been linked to poor psychological outcomes including psychological distress, which has wide-reaching implications for the community and the workplace. Given work-related stress has been associated with poor mental health outcomes, high-dose B vitamin supplementation may be effective in impro...

Current literature shows that emotional intelligence (EI) plays a significant role in teacher effectiveness. In recognition of this, one Australian state has recently announced that initial teacher education (ITE) graduates must demonstrate superior emotional intelligence in psychometric tests before they will be allowed to apply for jobs in New South Wales’ public schools. In order to inform ITE providers and researchers seeking to support pre-service teachers (PST) in developing superior EI, t...
