      Prominent publications by Robert M Post

      The Canadian Network for Mood and Anxiety Treatments (CANMAT) previously published treatment guidelines for bipolar disorder in 2005, along with international commentaries and subsequent updates in 2007, 2009, and 2013. The last two updates were published in collaboration with the International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD). These 2018 CANMAT and ISBD Bipolar Treatment Guidelines represent the significant advances in the field since the last full edition was published in 2005, ...

      OBJECTIVE: The authors examined the comparative risks of switches in mood polarity into hypomania or mania during acute and continuation trials of adjunctive antidepressant treatment of bipolar depression.

      METHOD: One hundred fifty-nine patients with bipolar I disorder or bipolar II disorder participated in a total of 228 acute (10-week) randomized trials of bupropion, sertraline, or venlafaxine as an adjunct to a mood stabilizer. Patients in 87 of these trials entered continuation ...

      OBJECTIVE: Bipolar disorder often co-occurs with other axis I disorders, but little is known about the relationships between the clinical features of bipolar illness and these comorbid conditions. Therefore, the authors assessed comorbid lifetime and current axis I disorders in 288 patients with bipolar disorder and the relationships of these comorbid disorders to selected demographic and historical illness variables.

      METHOD: They evaluated 288 outpatients with bipolar I or II disorder, ...

      OBJECTIVE: While guidelines for treating patients with bipolar depression recommend discontinuing antidepressants within 6 months after remission, few studies have assessed the implications of this strategy on the risk for depressive relapse. This study examined the effect of antidepressant discontinuation or continuation on depressive relapse risk among bipolar subjects successfully treated for an acute depressive episode.

      METHOD: Eighty-four subjects with bipolar disorder who achieved ...

      BACKGROUND: High (10-20 Hz) and low frequency (1-5 Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) have been explored for possible therapeutic effects in the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. As part of a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study evaluating the antidepressant effect of daily rTMS over the left prefrontal cortex, we evaluated changes in absolute regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) after treatment with 1- and 20-Hz rTMS. Based on preclinical data, we ...

      Tolerance to the anticonvulsant effects of carbamazepine (CBZ) in the amygdala kindling paradigm is a contingent process, since it only develops in rats treated with CBZ before the kindling stimulation and not in those animals treated after the stimulation. The present study was designed to investigate the GABAA receptor system in CBZ contingent tolerance. Receptor autoradiography utilizing various radioligands that bind to different components of the GABAA receptor system and in situ ...

      This study examines forms of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity in the basolateral amygdala in vitro and demonstrates that a brief high frequency stimulus (HFS) train can induce a switch in the direction of the enduring change in synaptic strength induced by subsequent low-frequency stimulation (LFS). LFS (1 Hz, 15 min) of the external capsule (EC) induced a persistent 1.7-fold enhancement in the amplitude of synaptic potentials recorded intracellularly in basolateral amygdala ...

      Using an amygdala-kindled seizure paradigm, we evaluated the acute and chronic anticonvulsant effects of lamotrigine (LTG). Lamotrigine produced dose-dependent inhibitory effects on seizure stage, afterdischarge (AD), and seizure duration. Lamotrigine (15 mg/kg) also increased the afterdischarge and seizure thresholds. Following repeated LTG administration and stimulation at 48-h intervals, tolerance developed to LTG's (15 mg/kg) anticonvulsant effects, and cross-tolerance was observed ...

      OBJECTIVE: We previously found that compared with Europe more parents of the USA patients were positive for a mood disorder, and that this was associated with early onset bipolar disorder. Here we examine family history of psychiatric illness in more detail across several generations.

      METHODS: A total of 968 outpatients (average age 41) with bipolar disorder from four sites in the USA and three in the Netherlands and Germany (abbreviated as Europe) gave informed consent and provided ...

      Chronic stress produces structural changes and neuronal damage especially in the hippocampus. Because neurotrophic factors affect neuron survival, we questioned whether they might be relevant to the heightened vulnerability of hippocampal neurons following stress. To begin investigating this possibility, we examined the effects of immobilization stress (2 hr/d) on the expression of neurotrophic factors in rat brains using in situ hybridization. We found that single or repeated ...

      Until recently it was believed that no more than 1% of the general population has bipolar disorder. Emerging transatlantic data are beginning to provide converging evidence for a higher prevalence of up to at least 5%. Manic states, even those with mood-incongruent features, as well as mixed (dysphoric) mania, are now formally included in both ICD-10 and DSM-IV. Mixed states occur in an average of 40% of bipolar patients over a lifetime; current evidence supports a broader definition of ...

      The present study examined changes in mRNA expression of various neuropeptides at several stages of amygdala kindled seizures. 35S-labelled oligonucleotide probes for mRNA of enkephalin (ENK), dynorphin (DYN) and thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) were hybridized to brain sections of rats sacrificed 24 h after a stage 1 or stage 5 seizure, or 2 weeks after a stage 5 seizure. Changes in expression developed as kindling progressed, with long-lasting changes in ENK and transient changes in ...

      The Stroop interference test requires a person to respond to specific elements of a stimulus while suppressing a competing response. Previous positron emission tomography (PET) work has shown increased activity in the right anterior cingulate gyrus during the Stroop test. It is unclear, however, whether the anterior cingulate participates more in the attentional rather than the response selection aspects of the task or whether different interference stimuli might activate different brain ...

      INTRODUCTION: This study examined the reproductive function and prevalence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women with bipolar disorder taking antimanic medications.

      METHOD: Women aged 18-45 treated for bipolar disorder and not taking steroid contraceptives were recruited to complete questionnaires about their menstrual cycle and to provide blood samples for measurement of a range of reproductive endocrine and metabolic hormone levels. Eighty women participated in completing the ...

      Contingent tolerance to the anticonvulsant effects of carbamazepine on amygdala kindled seizures develops when the drug is repeatedly given prior to but not after the electrical stimulation. Such tolerance can be reversed by kindling the rats for several days without drug or even by continuing to give the drug but after each seizure has occurred. Contingent tolerance can be slowed by reducing the electrical stimulus intensity and by chronic continuous (as opposed to repeated paired) drug ...
