SSRIs are the first line of therapy for anxiety and depressive disorders and for many other clinical diagnoses. One of the most disturbing side effects that is observed is a tendency towards aggressiveness among patients receiving medications from this group, mainly during the first month of therapy. Aggressive behavior tends to occur in some individuals but not in others. In some sub-groups of people, personality and character traits might make a person more prone to aggressive behavior.
In this study the investigators try to estimate the tendency towards aggressive behavior in patients prescribed to a medication from the SSRI group. By using a comparative computer simulation they hope to be able to detect delicate changes and to maybe get some clues of the personalities prone to aggressive behavior in the future.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) became the first line therapy for anxiety and depressive disorders and for many other clinical diagnoses. One of the most disturbing side effects that is observed is a tendency towards aggressiveness among patients receiving medications from this group, mainly during the first (one month) period of therapy. Aggressive behavior tends to occur in some individuals but not in others. Until now most of the cases and reports in the literature demonstrate the extreme events of aggressive behavior. These personality or any other character traits that are more prone to develop aggressiveness have not been studied and it is not clear if this side effect manifests itself just in the extreme rare cases or if it is a more common phenomenon that occurs in a wider group of people.
In this study we try to estimate the tendency towards aggressive behavior of patients prescribed to a medication of the SSRI group. By using a comparative computer simulation we hope to be able to detect more delicate changes and maybe to get some clues of the personalities prone to aggressive behavior in the future.

Comparison of success rates of novice surgeons to attain proficiency in basic arthroscopy skills after receiving prior training with different simulation systems.
Simulation is used to teach undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare professionals, however it is not known how best to use this resource. Using qualitative methods, this study aims to in...
This study compares the use of simulation-based just-in-time training to video training in learning neonatal endotracheal intubation. Half of the participants will be trained using simulat...
Computer-aided surgical simulation (CASS) has redefined surgery, improved precision and reduced the reliance on intraoperative trial-and-error manipulations. CASS is provided by third-party service...

Although error disclosure is critical in promoting safety and patient-centered care, physicians are inconsistently trained in its practice, and few objective methods to assess competence exist. We use...
Prolactin-related adverse effects contribute to nonadherence and adverse health consequences, particularly in women with severe mental illness. Treating these adverse effects may improve treatment acc...
Human error and system failures continue to play a substantial role in preventable errors that lead to adverse patient outcomes or death. Many of these deaths are not the result of inadequate medical ...
Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.
Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.
A computer simulation technique that is used to model the interaction between two molecules. Typically the docking simulation measures the interactions of a small molecule or ligand with a part of a larger molecule such as a protein.
Disorders that result from the intended use of PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATIONS. Included in this heading are a broad variety of chemically-induced adverse conditions due to toxicity, DRUG INTERACTIONS, and metabolic effects of pharmaceuticals.
A computer simulation developed to study the motion of molecules over a period of time.
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
