Applying transcranial direct current stimulation to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex can help to improve cognitive control and may be a beneficial treatment for those with autism, schizophrenia and ADHD, a new study reports.
Researchers report two neural networks broadly overlap in people who intentionally let their minds wander.
Researchers report on the important role the rostrolateral prefrontal cortex plays in keeping us on task.
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.
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.
A new study reveals how the brain manages to perform learned categorization while under stress.
Study identifies a neural pathway associated with error monitoring and attention function in some psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, ASD, and schizophrenia. Researchers say the pathway could be modulated with the help of transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation.
A new study sheds light on why children born with very low birth weight often suffer from cognitive problems.
Researchers investigate the teenage brain and answer questions as to why behaviors change so much during these years.
