    December 2014 Highlights

    This audio program includes a discussion of mercury poisoning and its neuropsychiatric presentations and presents a large study that used a new approach to testing the effect of antidepressants on heart rate. Several articles are about biomarkers of psychiatric illness: one identified a combined epigenetic and genetic biomarker for suicide, and another found that a measure of inflammation in depressed patients predicted the outcome of treatment with escitalopram and nortriptyline. Finally, a commentary on biomarkers considers how biological tests can be incorporated into psychiatric diagnostic criteria. Articles can be viewed online at www.ajp.psychiatryonline.org.
