A new study reveals a brain region that contributes to anhedonia, the loss of pleasure, in those with depression. The study also shows how ketamine acts on this brain region, explaining why the drug appears to be so effective at treating anhedonia.
Researchers reveal the neurobiology and typical behavior associated with psychopathic personalities. The paper explores the red flags that might mean you are in a relationship with a psychopath.
Researchers report brain stimulation to different parts of a specific brain network can change perceptions of free will.
A neuroimaging study conducted by researchers from UCLA reveals the brains of people with schizophrenia are less sensitive to social rewards than they are to non-social rewards.
Researchers report THC oil may be beneficial in providing pain relief for those suffering radicular pain, such as sciatica. The study reports marijuana reduces connections between areas of the brain that process sensory signals and emotions.
