War zone-related stress was associated with alterations in limbic gray matter microstructure, independent of a mental health or tbi diagnosis. In turn, these alterations were associated with cognitive function, including impaired response inhibition.
The neural circuitry that connects olfactory information about another mouse's sex to decision-making in the brain determines the behavioral outcome as to whether aggression or affection is expressed.
Understanding how changes in the brain relate to changes in well-being is key to developing new targets for the treatment of mental health disorders.
Using the Dr. Seuss classic, The Lorax, researchers shed new light on how the brain engages during complex audiovisual speech perception. The findings reveal how the brain utilizes a complex network of brain regions involved in sensory processing, multisensory integration, and cognitive functions to comprehend a story's context.
CGRP neurons found in subregions of the thalamus and brainstem relay multisensory threat information to the amygdala. These neural circuits are essential for the formation of aversive memories, a new study reports.
Researchers explore how changes in the patterns of activity in the basolateral amygdala contribute to negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, and depression.
Alcohol consumption affects amygdala oscillations differently in male and female mice, especially after repeated exposure.
Artificial intelligence helps shed new light on why many with autism have a difficult time when it comes to processing emotions via facial expressions.
Takotsubo syndrome, a sudden form of acute heart failure often brought on by emotional or physical stress, is associated with changes in brain regions associated with emotion and emotional processing.
