Tenacity, a newly developed video game that promotes mindfulness, alters connectivity between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the inferior parietal cortex. These areas of the brain are critical for attention. After playing the game for a short period, participants reported improvements in attention.
Researchers report veterans with PTSD were better able to manage invasive traumatic memories with the help of mindfulness training.
Repetitive transcranial memory stimulation applied to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex modifies the negative effects of fear memories. The findings could have implications for the treatment of PTSD.
A new neuroimaging study provides an insight into the neurobiology of those willing to commit terrorist acts. Researchers consider the psychological and social factors which also contribute to radicalization, and discuss how inclusive societies could help in the fight against political violence.
Neuroimaging reveals lower activation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and angular gyrus in teenage girls with conduct disorder. Findings suggest that a reduction in prefrontal brain regions and functional connectivity during effortful emotional regulations contribute to behaviors associated with antisocial behavior in teenage girls.
A new neuroimaging study finds those with gambling addition have a poor ability to assess and adapt to high risk situations.
Study evaluates the effects of regular cannabis use on cortical dopamine function in youth at high risk of psychosis.
Researchers have discovered a brain network that appears to be involved in self disclosure in social networks.
A new study reveals the desire to carry our physical or sexual assault can be curbed with the help of tDCS. The brain stimulation technique also increases the perception in potential offenders that such violence is morally wrong.
