A new SPECT imaging study reveals those with treatment resistant depression have lower cerebral blood flow within the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes.
Preterm birth has significant and selective effects on functional networks in the frontal lobe, researchers report.
Deep brain stimulation to the frontal lobe may help to improve cognitive, behavioral and functional difficulties in those with Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
A new, whole brain map of neural connectivity reveals low frequency activity rhythms drive communication between key areas involved in memory processing.
A new neuroimaging study reveals patterns of asymmetry in the human brain may be unique to our species and could help explain how we developed language skills.
A new neuroimaging study reveals self control varies depending on the importance of the decision. Self control, researchers note, may also be augmented when people are asked to justify their decisions.
A new study implicates the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in our ability to assign credit for whatever action leads to a desired outcome. While the study does not rule out the involvement of other brain areas to credit assignment, it does show the dlPFC is a key player in how we assess causality.
Researchers report neurodegeneration associated with frontotemporal dementia could span from a reduced trophic support for neurons.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
