Researchers identify ventrolateral prefrontal cortex as a critical brain region for one shot learning.
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.
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.
Researchers have identified how the brain processes and differentiates between negative and positive emotions.
New findings could help develop new treatments for disorders characterized by the difficulty to inhibit actions.
