High levels of activity in the ventromedial prefronal cortex activity reflect how much people want to read a specific news article, researchers say. Additionally, those who infrequently read the news were better able to predict which news stories would go viral.
Neuroimaging study reveals veterans who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) have higher levels of fast, high-frequency gamma waves in the prefrontal and posterior parietal lobes, areas of the brain associated with consciousness, attention and problem-solving.
Taking a mobile neuroimaging system on the road to prisons, researchers look at the brain activity of those considered to be psychopaths and discover their brains are wired in a way that leads them to over-value immediate rewards while neglecting future consequences.
The ratio of GABA and glutamate affect long and short-term strategic decision-making in a different manner.
Neuroimaging reveals a significantly diminished response in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex in children on the autism spectrum. The findings could be used as a biomarker for diagnosing ASD.
Greater variability in reaction time is associated with reduced gray matter volume in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, a new study reports.
