PHILADELPHIA –- Examining data obtained from a University of Pennsylvania and Vanderbilt University psychology study, researchers at these universities and Northwestern University have reported the first placebo-controlled evidence that antidepressant medications—particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs—can substantially change patients’ personalities. The personality changes also appeared to be linked to long-term improvements in mood.
PHILADELPHIA — A study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and University of Delaware shows that cooperation between local and regional governments and organizations is crucial to achieve carbon-reduction goals being negotiated in the Copenhagen Conference of the Parties, or COP15, summit.
The findings are presented in a new position paper presented at the summit, “An Urban Agenda for the New Climate,” from Penn’s T.C. Chan Center for Building Simulation and Energy Studies and the University of Delaware Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, or CEEP.
