People with behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) exhibit behaviors that are considered socially unacceptable. While there is no current cure for FTD, researchers are finding methods to help inhibit some of the negative behaviors associated with FTD. A new study reports impulsivity and negative behaviors are greatly reduced in those with bvFTD when the patient is focused on a task.
Those with treatment-resistant depression showed significant improvement in symptoms and became more receptive to positive experiences following a one-week ketamine treatment regimen.
Study reveals how specific tasks are distributed to different areas within the prefrontal cortex to help with decision-making processes.
Researchers identified a novel brain network that includes the fronto-parietal networks and fusiform gyrus which helps with the encoding of visual mental imagery.
Researchers propose a new, more robust statistical method for mapping the brain.
