The anterior cingulate cortex generates a reactive alarm, increasing its activity to signal to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex to stop intrusive thoughts and memories.
According to a new study, people with multiple sclerosis exhibit weaker connections between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and posterior brain regions.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, researchers were able to increase and decrease people's enjoyment of music; and desire to listen to more.
Researchers report veterans with PTSD were better able to manage invasive traumatic memories with the help of mindfulness training.
Non-invasive brain stimulation, such as rTMS, helps to reduce smoking frequency in nicotine-dependent people, a new study reports. Stimulating the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation significantly reduced smoking frequency.
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.
A new study reports on increased activity in the prefrontal cortex following exposure to blue wavelength light.
According to a new study, the workings of neural circuits associated with creativity are significantly altered when artists are actively attempting to express emotion.
