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.
Researchers report intermittent theta burst stimulation can help to alleviate the symptoms of major depressive disorder. 49% of patients who received the treatment reported a significant decrease in symptoms, with 32% reporting remission of depression.
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.
Reduced gray matter volume in the insula and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex may represent a genetically conferred predispositional risk factor for alcohol use disorder.
Researchers believe some treatments for mental health conditions may be ineffective, or even dangerous for left handed people. A new study reports areas of the brain housing alertness and determination may be on the right side for left dominant people. The new theory suggests the location of a person's neural system for emotion depends on their handedness.
Gray matter volume in the dosolateral and ventromedial prefrontal cortex predicts whether you will choose a health food option or not, researchers report.
