Patients with mood and anxiety disorders have abnormally low activation in brain areas associated with cognitive and emotional control. Brain scans also revealed hyperactivity in brain areas linked to the processing of emotional thoughts.
Neuroimaging can be used to assess a person's risk of suicidal behavior.

They also have reduced connectivity between the cognitive control network and the default mode network.
A new study reports mothers who demonstrate better emotional control and problem solving abilities have a more positive influence on their child's behavior.
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.
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.
According to researchers, movies may control our attention more than we previously thought.
Study confirms the acceptability, feasibility and safety for using Project: EVO, a action video game experience, for children on the autism spectrum with co-occurring ADHD.
