4) and reported that hypofrontality
could reduce self-awareness and induce delusional thoughts and deficiencies in rational judgment, both in REM sleep and in episodes of psychosis.
in neuroleptic-naive patients and in patients with chronic schizophrenia: assessment with xenon 133 single-photon emission computed tomography and the Tower of London.
The test measured for an altered state of consciousness aligned with Dietrich's transient hypofrontality
, which relates to daydreaming, runner's high, meditation, and even some drug highs.
CNS: dilated ventricles, reduced brain volume and gray matter volume; hypofrontality
, neurocognitive deficits such as executive functioning, working memory, and attention; neurophysiologic (low amplitudes on evoked potentials)
Could the hypofrontality
pattern in schizophrenia be modified through neuropsychological rehabilitation?
Humans are also led astray by phenomena such as inattentional blindness, primacy, recency, attentional bias, and hypofrontality
in schizophrenia: disrupted dysfunctional circuits in neuroleptic-nai've patients.
Again the most frequent hypothesis is the hypofrontality
of brain structures and networks (Kim, Kwon, & Chang, 2011; Uekermann, Channon, & Daum, 2006; Uekermann, Channon, Winkel, Schlebusch, & Daum, 2007).
, on the other hand, is often associated with behavioral problems, resulting from the exercise of poor judgment and from impulsivity.
A recent hypothesis, based on evidence of frontal lobe dysfunction in patients with depression, proposed that exercise-induced, transient hypofrontality
might be a neural mechanism by which exercise offers mental health benefits (Dietrich, 2006).
in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder during higher cortical order motor control: a study using fMRI.
2004, 557), a condition referred to as hypofrontality
