Visual information about landmarks, buildings and spatial layout is encoded in the parahippocampal place area, which lies medial to the fusiform face area.
Affected brain regions included the left amygdala, medial prefrontal cortex and parahippocampal place area.
Women with PMDD have greater gray matter volume in the posterior cerebellum, (36) greater gray matter density of hippocampal cortex, and lower gray matter density in the parahippocampal cortex.
At autopsy the fresh brain weight was 1020 g and the most notable finding on external examination was severe, circumscribed, and knife-edge atrophy of the anteromedial temporal lobes bilaterally, extending caudally to involve parahippocampal gyri, amygdalae, and hippocampi (Figure 7, A through J).
A common thesis concerning the specific mechanisms involved in declarative episodic encoding is that MTL regions surrounding the hippocampus (namely the parahippocampal and entorhinal cortex) receive sensorial information from different areas of the cortex.
A five-year trial showed that scores of the peritraumatic dissociation levels are positively correlated with the activation of the right occipital lobe - lingual, fusiform and parahippocampal gyri, regions responsible for vivid autobiographical memory of highly emotional events.
Participants whose serum lutein levels were higher performed better in the crystallized intelligence tests and had thicker gray matter in the brain's parahippocampal cortex, indicating healthier brain aging.
Those with higher serum lutein levels also tended to have thicker gray matter in the parahippocampal cortex, a brain region that, like crystallized intelligence, is preserved in healthy aging, the researchers reported.
For example, the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex functional network (FN) (including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, orbitofrontal cortex, and posterior cingulate cortex) and the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) FN (including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, sensorimotor cortex, parahippocampal gyrus, and midbrain) have been reported to be prognostic neuroimaging biomarkers that can predict the outcome of ECT in TRD patients and can also be used to guide personalized treatment decisions.
Their research revealed that individuals they studied who had higher levels of the nutrient in their blood also had greater amounts of gray matter in a region of the brain called the parahippocampal cortex, a sign of resistance to the wear and tear associated with aging.
Patients with MTLE have refractory seizures originating from the mesial temporal lobe (MTL) structures, including the hippocampus, amygdala, and parahippocampal gyrus.
5 Hz to 14 Hz range within the right but not the left parahippocampal gyrus compared to days with relatively quiet geomagnetic activity.
