> 11/12/2007 9:04:26 AM

In a week dominated by smoking research, identifying the roots of agression, and fMRIs to study ADHD, there were several health related stories that we didn't have a chance to cover. Check them out now in our weekly Session Wrap-Up:

Dieting Hardest For Emotional Eaters - When individuals link internal cues such as thoughts and feelings with eating, researchers found that those individuals had a harder time keeping off weight that they had lost through dieting.

Researchers Suggest Updating Criteria for HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders - A large review of the neurological manifestations of HIV has found that the criteria and other clinical aspects of the condition are in need of an update.

Divorce Doesn't Have to Destroy the Kids - Some high profile celebrity divorces have thrown light onto the way in which divorce affects the children in a family, and that has led to a focus on programs that try to help families proceed through divorces with the least acrimony possible.

Device Could Help Doctors and Smokers - Doctors may not need to worry about their clients’ truthfulness about smoking in the future, as a new device can quickly identify those who have been smoking by measuring the amount of carbon monoxide in the blood.

A Maternal Link to Alzheimer's Disease - NYU researchers have documented a larger risk for developing Alzheimer’s if there is a history of the disease on the mother’s side of the family.
