Study reveals specific neurons in the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex that become active when people are faced with the decision to learn or hide from information about an adverse event the person is not able to prevent.
Researchers have identified a brain pathway between the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and the inferior temporal cortex which enables primates to effortlessly identify objects in their field of vision.
The brain chooses between two neural systems responsible for emulation learning and imitation learning. Study reveals how the brain chooses which strategy to employ when faced with an observational learning task.

Combining neuroimaging data with machine learning, researchers have identified patterns of brain activation during reward anticipation, associated with an increased risk of developing bipolar disorder. The patterns of neural activation predict the severity of mania symptoms in young adults who have not yet developed the disorder.
Reduced connectivity between the amygdala and ventrolateral prefrontal cortex has been identified in children on the autism spectrum who exhibit disruptive behaviors, compared to those on the spectrum who do not. Findings suggest this distinct brain network could be independent of core autism symptoms.
A new study reveals mindfulness can act as a buffer against the pain and distress of social rejection.
A neuroimaging study reveals people with OCD who receive daily cognitive behavioral therapy to help curb their compulsive behaviors show stronger connections between specific brain regions.
A new study reports on increased activity in the prefrontal cortex following exposure to blue wavelength light.
