Different areas of the inferior parietal lobe specialize in distinct cognitive functions, such as language processing and social cognition. However, these areas work together in conjunction with different brain areas in process-specific ways.
In a mouse model of autism, researchers have successfully restored social behavior with the help of brain stimulation. Researchers are now considering if it would be feasible to treat children on the autism spectrum with similar neuromodulation techniques.
According to a new Journal of Neuroscience study, strong structural connectivity between the rostrolateral prefrontal cortex and inferior parietal lobe in young children is associated with improved reasoning in adulthood.
A new study reveals multiple parts of the brain are associated with memory processing. Findings could help develop new strategies to treat those with brain injuries.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that allows us to judge whether a difficult social situation is emotional negative or positive.
