The researchers found that even within his sample of healthy young adults, people with less hippocampal GABA (less effective 'foot-soldiers') were less able to suppress hippocampal activity by the prefrontal
cortex -- and as a result much worse at inhibiting unwanted thoughts.
19] The neurons of the cingulate gyrus were closely related to the prefrontal
cortex is associated with a wide array of other important functions, including (http://www.
In cerebral cortex, frontal lobes encompass various dopamine sensitive neurons which are responsible for prefrontal
cortical functioning (i.
The medial prefrontal
cortex of the 78 mg/kg Allium sativum group showed hypertrophy and hyperplasia of cells especially in the cortical plate.
A separate group of rats received optogenetic stimulation of a different brain region, the prelimbic prefrontal
The present study added to the cumulative literature regarding the relationship between the prefrontal
cortex (specifically the orbitofrontal cortex/OFC, dorsolateral prefrontal
cortex/DLPFC, ventrolateral prefrontal
cortex/VLPFC, and the medial prefrontal
cortex/MPFC) and psychopathic behaviors.
Using an innovative approach combining electrophysiological recording techniques, optogenetic manipulations and behavioural approaches, the researchers were able to demonstrate that fear expression is related to the inhibition of highly specific interneurons-the parvalbumin-expressing prefrontal
The rostromedial prefrontal
cortex has been implicated in thinking about other people's mental states and comparing the self with others.
Since LHX6 promotes the growth of these nerve cells, LHX6 deficits in prefrontal
cortex are believed to stall nerve cell functions, affecting the cognitive capacity of some schizophrenia patients, according to the study.
Evidence from many clinical trials has indicated that the prefrontal
cortex (PFC) is one of the last areas of the brain to develop during adolescence.
Rats with the NVHL were impaired on the task which requires communication between the hippocampus and prefrontal
cortex, but not on the task which depends on communication between the hippocampus and nucleus accumbens.
