Free radicals are a by-product of almost every biochemical reaction occurring. Normally, our body keeps these electron-stealing atoms under control with endogenously produced antioxidants, however aging, mitochondrial damage, and exposure to environment toxins all serve to reduce our own supply of antioxidants and increase free radical production. Free radicals that are left unchecked cause severe damage on whichever cellular component they come into contact, be it fat cells, protein, DNA or RNA. This causes severe damage to the cell and ultimately cell death and puts our body in a state known as oxidative stress.

mental illness may be a condition that affects a personality's thinking, feeling or mood. Such conditions might have an effect on someone's ability to relate to others and on daily performance. Each person can have totally different experiences, even individuals with the same diagnosis. Recovery, as well as significant roles in social life, faculty and work, is feasible, particularly after you begin treatment early and play a robust role in your own recovery method. A mental state condition isn’t the result of one event. Analysis suggests multiple, linking causes. Genetics, atmosphere and lifestyle influence whether someone develops a mental health condition. A stressful job or home life makes some individuals additional prone, as do traumatic life events like being the victim of against the law.

Oxidative Stress reflects awkwardness between the systemic manifestation of receptive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to promptly detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the subsequent harm. Disturbances influences in the typical redox condition of cells can cause lethal impacts through the creation of peroxides and free radicals that harm all segments of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA. Oxidative stress from oxidative digestion causes base harm, and also strand softens up DNA. Base harm is for the most part aberrant and caused by receptive oxygen species (ROS) created, O2 (superoxide radical), OH (hydroxyl radical) and H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide). Some reactive oxidative species act as cellular messengers in redox signaling. Thus, oxidative stress can cause disruptions in normal mechanisms of cellular signaling.

Biomarker generally refers to a measurable indicator of some biological state or condition. The term is also occasionally used to refer to a substance whose detection indicates the presence of an organism. Biomarkers are often measured and evaluated to examine normal biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention. Biomarkers are used in many scientific fields.

Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant defense mechanisms. This phenomenon increases with age and affects the normal functioning of several tissues. Furthermore, numerous chronic diseases associated with older age, such as diabetes and cardiovascular, renal, pulmonary, and skeletal muscle disorders, are also directly related to OS. Considering this relationship, the aim of many ongoing studies is to elucidate the underlying mechanisms and role of OS in disease onset and development. In particular, there is considerable emphasis on finding new therapeutic strategies for decreasing Oxidative stress.

Psychopharmacology is defined as a scientific study that deals with the effect of drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. Psychopharmacology is distinguished from Neuropsychopharmacology that emphasizes the correlation between drug induced changes within the functioning of cells within the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior. Psychoactive drugs interact mainly with particular receptors or target sites found in the nervous system to induce widespread changes in psychological or physiological functions. The specific interaction between drugs and their receptors is referred to as drug action, and the widespread changes in physiological or psychological function is referred to as drug effect.

Oxidative stress in skin plays a major role in the aging process. Modern living causes our skin and body to face an unavoidable onslaught of oxidative stress around the clock. Oxidative stress is what happens when the production of free radicals exceeds the body’s ability to detoxify itself of the free radicals. Aging is driven to a large extent by oxidative stress caused by Ultra Violet irradiation.

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells. Antioxidants such as thiols or ascorbic acid (vitamin C) terminate these chain reactions. The term "antioxidant" is mainly used for two different groups of substances: industrial chemicals which are added to products to prevent oxidation, and natural chemicals found in foods and body tissue which are said to have beneficial health effects.

Aging is an extremely complex and multifactorial process that proceeds to the gradual deterioration in functions. It usually manifests after maturity and leads to disability and death. Traditionally researchers focused primarily on understanding how physiological functions decline with the increasing age. Defects formed in human body as a consequence of the aging process start to arise very early in life, probably in utero.

In psychology, stress is a feeling of strain and pressure or any unpleasant emotion and feeling. Small amounts of stress may be desired, beneficial, and even healthy. Positive stress helps improve athletic performance. It also plays a factor in motivation, adaptation, and reaction to the environment. Excessive amounts of stress, however, may lead to bodily harm. Stress can increase the risk of strokes, heart attacks, ulcers, dwarfism, and mental illnesses such as depression. Stress can be external and related to the environment, but may also be created by internal perceptions that cause an individual to experience anxiety or other negative emotions surrounding a situation, such as pressure, discomfort, etc., which they then deem stressful.

Cognitive science is the scientific study of the human mind and brain, focusing on how mind represents and manipulates knowledge and how mental representations and processes are realized in the brain. The field is highly transdisciplinary in nature, combining ideas, principles and methods of psychology, computer science, linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience etc.

Suicide: It is the act of intentionally causing one's own death. Risk factors Include mental disorders like depression, stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenic psychosis, personality disorders, alcoholism, substance misuse, and use of benzodiazepines. Other issues may include impulsive acts due to stress such as financial problems, workplace Stress, troubles with relationships or from bullying. Those who have previously attempted suicide those are at higher risk for future attempts. Suicide prevention efforts include limiting access to methods of suicide, such as firearms, drugs, and poisons, treating mental disorders and substance misuse, proper media reporting of suicide, and improving economic conditions.

Personality disorders are usually characterized as a mental disorderwhere an individual’s attitudes, beliefs and behaviours cause longstanding problems in life. The word ‘personality’ refers to the pattern of thoughts, feelings and behaviour that makes each of us the individuals that we are. We don't always think, feel and behave in exactly the same way it depends on the situation we are in, the people with us and many other things. There are a range of treatments that can help you if you experience a personality disorder: Talking Treatment, Medication, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Dialectical behaviour therapy, Mentalisation Based Therapy, Schema Therapy and Arts therapies.

Mindfulness:  A psychological procedure of bringing individuals attention regarding experiences that are occurring in the present moment, which can be created through the practice of meditation, yoga and other training. Mindfulness means living in the current moment and awakening to your current experience, rather than thinking about the past or anticipating the future. Studies demonstrated that rumination and Stress/Worry contribute to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety and that mindfulness-based intervention are effective in the reduction of both rumination and Stress.

When we look at and interact with the visual world in all its detail, the process usually feels effortless, but in reality highly complex cognitive processes are occurring, enabling us to see, touch objects, navigate, and remember where we have been. Visual-spatial processing is the ability to tell where objects are in space.

Cognitive development is concerned in the field of childhood neurological and psychological development. Specifically, cognitive development is assessed based on the level of conception, perception, information processing, and language as an indicator of brain development. Cognitive development advances with age, human awareness and understanding of the world increases from infancy to childhood, and then again into adolescence. The process of cognitive development was first described by Jean Piaget, in his Theory of Cognitive Development. Cognitive aging is the study in basic advances of learning and memory along with the complex higher-order advances of language and intellectual competence or executive functioning. Much of the literature in this field has been concerned with explaining the mechanism of cognitive decline with advancing age.
