The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology - Abstract - Recent non-medication trials of interpersonal psychotherapy for depression

Four recent clinical trials are reviewed in situations where medication as a first-line treatment for depression was not feasible (pregnancy, post partum, adolescence and in a developing country). The results show the efficacy of 12–16 wk of IPT compared to treatment as usual or no treatment in reducing depressive symptoms. The therapists providing the treatment included psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers as well as non-mental-health workers.

The Traveling Salesman

Given a list of cities, what is the shortest tour that visits each city exactly once and returns back to the starting city? One of the reasons why this problem is so famous is that it is easy to understand the problem and incredibly hard to solve the problem. The animation above illustrates the steps a computer algorithm used to arrive at what we think is the shortest distance - 12,930 miles - needed to visit all 48 continental US capitals.

Que se passe-t-il dans la tête d’un sourd-muet en train de se masturber ? Voilà la curieuse question que le vénérable George Steiner pose dans son essai Les Livres que je n’ai pas écrits (2008). Cette question semble revêtir pour lui une importance capitale. « Il serait extrêmement difficile d’obtenir sur ce point des informations fiables. Ici, G. La seconde erreur est plus fondamentale.
