Emotion is inherently embodied, formulated through bodily sensation as well as expressed and regulated through action. Both expressing one’s own emotions and understanding the emotional actions of others are common areas of difficulty in autism. Moreover, reduced emotional awareness is also thought to be problematic in autism, and such difficulties may be mediated by impaired motor cognition. We aimed to examine how intensity of emotional experience and ability to differentiate between one’s own...

Background: We recently completed a randomised controlled trial in Goa India in which we observed a pattern of discordance with our two primary outcome measures; the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) classified patients as moderately severe at the end of treatment, whilst the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) classified these same patients as being only mildly depressed. The aim of this study is to explore whether the disparity between these two measures is seen in other settings. Method: Th...

Background: Annual reviews of people living with long-term conditions (LTCs) are mostly conducted by practice nurses (PNs), who focus on the physical needs of patients. The broader mental well-being and social needs of patients are also important if they are to live well. The Patient Centred Assessment Method (PCAM) is a new tool to help PNs conduct biopsychosocial assessments of patients’ needs. Research questions: Is it feasible and acceptable to use the PCAM in primary care nurse-led reviews ...

Impaired motor cognition may underpin empathy problems in autism. The actions and feelings questionnaire (AFQ), designed to examine individual differences in motor cognition, was completed fully by 1391 adults, of whom 326 reported a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition (ASC). A confirmatory factor analysis supported a 3 factor model. The AFQ total and ‘feelings’ subscale scores correlated highly with the EQ and ROC curves were similar. Our findings suggest that individual differences in em...

To assess the relationship between electrical stimulation administered to patients undergoing bilateral electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and subsequent measures of cognitive function and depression severity.Stimulus dose titrated patients receiving bilateral ECT were assessed with the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) Spatial Recognition Memory test and Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) at baseline, after 4 ECT treatments and on course completion. Change...

Empathy is usually conceived of as independent of the non-verbal behaviors which mediate its experience, though embodied cognition theory predicts that individual differences in action representation will affect empathic traits. The “Actions and Feelings Questionnaire” (AFQ) was designed to capture individual differences in self-awareness of own and others’ actions, particularly those associated with feelings, which we predicted would correlate with levels of empathic traits. A pilot 30-item que...

Many patients in primary care stop antidepressant treatment after only one prescription, so do not benefit from treatment. Some patients who stop initial antidepressant treatment go on to restart it, but neither the incidence of restarting nor the probability that patients who restart treatment subsequently complete an adequate course of treatment is known.To examine subsequent antidepressant use in patients who discontinued treatment after only one antidepressant prescription.We used a primary ...
