Researchers Say Brain Region Responsible for Pain's Ability to Seek Attention

...gion was one called the rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC) known to be involved in the brain's processing of pain and plays an important role in 'executive" functions such as attentional control. The fMRI scans indicated that the region was indeed, the brain centre through which pain influences the...

...ients whose strokes have damaged part of the motor cortex and subcortex, this means that movement therapy may help the brain to use other, nearby neurons or even neurons in the opposite brain hemisphere to complete a movement. The goal is to make neurons talk to each other again, said Dr. Krebs, adding ...

Research Reveals Anatomy of Suppressed Memories: Study

But when the researchers gave both groups explicit instructions to pay attention to the speaker's facial expression and tone of voice, only the ASD children showed a significant increase in activity in the media...

Our Ancestors Possessed Much Smaller Brains Than It was Thought

...try," said Simons. "We also find that the visual cortex was large, which means that like many primates, this species likely had very acute vision. So the visual sense, which is regarded as a very important feature of anthropoids, or higher primates, had already expanded, he said. The findings appear on...

Link Between Food Cue-related Brain Activity Found

...ample, increased connectivity was seen between the cortex and two other regions - the amygdala and the striatum. Within the latter, there was a shift in activity from the outer shell to the inner core of the nucleus accumbens and an increased expression of the opioid-encoding proenkephalin gene. Taken to...

Understanding of Schizophrenia Could Lead to New Treatment Options
