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.
Researchers report on the combined structural, functional and anatomical changes that occur in those born blind that are not present in the brains of people born with sight.
While many of us find the sound of a person chewing or breathing heavily annoying, for those with misophonia, such noises are unbearable. Researchers have identified the neural networks and brain changes associated with the disorder.
Study reveals cognitive behavioral therapy can strengthen specific connections in the brains of people with psychosis, and the stronger neural network connections are associated with long term reduction in symptoms.
Cerebral blood flow is reduced in the Broca's area of people who stutter, researchers report. Additionally, the more severely a person stutters, the less blood flows to this area of the brain.
