Study shows chronic hyperglycemia impairs working memory performance and alters fundamental aspects of working memory brain networks. The findings strengthen the link between type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
Heightened states of arousal altered neural circuits in a brain area associated with decision making, resulting in some neurons changing from decision making to internal state monitors.
Whether you hug to show affection to comfort a loved one in pain, researchers explore the neuroscience of why a cuddle feels so good.
A new study reveals how anxiety affects the decision-making process in the brain, resulting in selecting more pessimistic choices.
Switching off activity in the anterior cingulate cortex prevented marmoset monkeys from making an association between behavior and a particular outcome.
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.
Differences in the expression of gene transcripts shed light on how mental health disorders with shared genetic risk factors differ in onset, symptoms, course of progression, and treatment responses.
Neuroimaging predicts whether a person with OCD will respond to stress-reduction therapy or exposure-based therapy best. Analyzing brain activity may help to provide tailored treatments to individuals suffering from OCD.
Coercion to perform detrimental actions against others reduces empathy and guilt, a new study reports. The findings may explain why people are able to commit immoral acts that go against their ethical stance when coerced.
Following a one year program of aerobic exercise improves memory function and boosts blood flow to brain areas critical for cognition in older adults with risk factors for dementia.
