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.
Researchers have identified a link between neurotransmitter imbalance and brain connectivity in brain areas associated with social communication and language in those with ASD.
Researchers have identified specific brain functions that give you confidence that what you see is actually what you saw.
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.
Researchers discover genes associated with major depressive disorder are altered in opposite directions in males compared to females.
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 repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, researchers report they are able to strengthen or weaken the processing of negative emotions.
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.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, researchers were able to increase and decrease people's enjoyment of music; and desire to listen to more.
