The Role of Safety Behaviors in Panic Disorder Treatment: Self-Regulation or Self-Defeat?AbstractSafety behaviors (SBs) are generally perceived as 'dysfunctional' emotion-regulation strategies that reduce physical symptoms and prevent unrealistic feared consequences of panic attacks. However, it is unclear whether all types of SBs are a hindrance or whether some may promote self-regulation in treatment. We propose that the type of SBs might explain some of the variability between panic disorder (PD)...

Rapamycin Protects Spiral Ganglion Neurons from Gentamicin-Induced Degeneration In VitroAbstractGentamicin, one of the most widely used aminoglycoside antibiotics, is known to have toxic effects on the inner ear. Taken up by cochlear hair cells and spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs), gentamicin induces the accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and initiates apoptosis or programmed cell death, resulting in a permanent and irreversible hearing loss. Since the survival of SGNs is specially required...
