A new study sheds light on the role striosomal neurons play in reinforcement learning.
A new neuroimaging study reveals preschool aged children with ASD have significant differences in the basal ganglia network and paralimbic-limbic network in the brain compared to their peers who were not diagnosed with autism.
According to researchers, people with anorexia nervosa scored lowest on a test measuring their ability to form insight.
A new study reports those with ADHD are at an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease. The study reveals people with ADHD are twice as likely to develop early onset Parkinson's between the ages of 21-66. Additionally, those who are prescribed stimulant medications to help reduce ADHD symptoms, including Ritalin and Adderal, are at a 6-8 times increased risk of developing Parkinson's.
Researchers have pinpointed how brain activity changes in mouse models of Parkinson's disease, providing clues as to what may drive symptoms of the disease in humans.
A group of neurons located in the basal ganglia appears to play a vital role in cognitive flexibility.
Researchers have discovered a link between specific neural circuits to distinct behavioral symptoms of depression. The study, published in Cell, reports altering the networks helped to improve symptoms such as social withdrawal and helplessness.
A neuroimaging study links the different symptoms of schizophrenia to neurological disruption in multiple brain areas.
Our brains could process new situations by relying on a method similar to a "pointer" system used by computers, new research suggests.
Abnormal activity involving the globus pallidus may be responsible for movement dysfunction in Parkinson's disease, a new study reports.
