Mothers who reported higher levels of parental stress had less synchrony in brain activity with their young children than moms who were more stress-free. The findings shed new light on how parental stress can impact the mother-child relationship on a day-to-day basis.
A new study reveals the dorsolateral prefronal cortex integrates information about blameworthiness and helps us to determine an appropriate level of punishment.
The stronger the connection between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and temporal-parietal junction, the less likely people are to punish others for selfish deeds.
Researchers report consuming a savory broth can produce subtle neurobiological changes that promotes healthy eating behaviors and food choices.
Researchers have identified altered gene expression in the prefrontal area of the brain in those with schizophrenia. The study reports schizophrenia may have evolved as 'side effect' of human brain development.
Using the classic Nintendo game, Super Mario 64, researchers discover playing 3D platform games could help older brains to stave off mild cognitive impairment. Researchers report older people who played the video game had gray matter increases in the cerebellum, hippocampus and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
Study evaluates the effects of regular cannabis use on cortical dopamine function in youth at high risk of psychosis.
The anterior cingulate cortex generates a reactive alarm, increasing its activity to signal to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex to stop intrusive thoughts and memories.
Researchers have identified a hippocampal neural network that activates during stress. Activity in a hippocampal-hypothalamus network predicts greater feelings of stress, while connectivity between the hippocampus and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex predicts less stress.
