People who experienced sexual abuse or suffer from PTSD have reduced connectivity in the ventral and dorsal attention network (VAN-DAN network) compared to those with no history of abuse or PTSD.
Bach1, a protein that blocks the expression of genes associated with neuroprotection, has been implicated in Parkison's disease. Researchers say blocking Bach1 slows the deterioration of brain cells in preclinical models of Parkinson's disease.
Using artificial intelligence and neuroimaging, researchers have identified a link between mental imagery and vision. The brain uses similar visual areas for mental imagery and vision but uses low-level visual areas less precisely for mental imagery than vision.
Study contradicts the conventional belief that burnout is associated with workplace factors, and depressive symptoms are more heavily influenced by personal factors. Burnout, researchers say, is much more closely related to factors that drive depression than previously thought.
A new study looks at the epigenetic factors that contribute to drug addiction and influence relapse.
Researchers report a person's ability to quit smoking could be influenced by a neural network associated with inhibiting automated behavior.
Researchers have identified specific potassium channel genes that are altered by alcohol addiction.
