Researchers identify a driving network for compulsivity in those with alcohol use disorders. The study reports heavy drinkers have more activity in the prefronal cortex, insular and striatum, areas of the brain critical for reward and decision making.
Researchers measured how brain waves travel in the prefrontal cortex during working memory tasks.
Researchers show freezing behavior associated with feat is associated with an internally generated brain state that manifests in sustained 4 Hz oscillatory dynamics in the dorsal medial prefrontal cortex-basolateral amygdala circuits.
Researchers report synchrony of brain waves within three regions of the brain can 'break down' when visual working memory load becomes too extensive to handle.
Researchers propose a new theory of memory formation, reporting memory storage does not rely on the strengthening of connection between memory cells, but on the pattern of connections that form within the first few minutes of an event.
A new study reports that a single stressful event may cause long term consequences in the brain.
