Neuroimaging can be used to assess a person's risk of suicidal behavior. Those with mood disorders, a history of suicidal thoughts, and those with a history of suicide attempts have less connectivity in the cognitive control network. They also have reduced connectivity between the cognitive control network and the default mode network.
Researchers investigate the teenage brain and answer questions as to why behaviors change so much during these years.
The activity of the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC) during motivated control reflects the calculation of surprise. The findings take cognitive control research to new heights by providing insight into how the dACC works as a component of a brain network that supports motivated behaviors.
Researchers are embarking on a new project to better understand the mechanisms of cognitive control.They hope to generate a specific mathematical model for each individual's brain activity in order to understand how cognitive control differs between people.
A new study reveals how the brain manages to perform learned categorization while under stress.
A new study sheds light on why children born with very low birth weight often suffer from cognitive problems.
Researchers report two neural networks broadly overlap in people who intentionally let their minds wander.
A new study reports mothers who demonstrate better emotional control and problem solving abilities have a more positive influence on their child's behavior.
