Results: In the longitudinal comparisons, the brain structure (GM volume of the right precentral gyri, left postcentral gyri, and right thalami) and perfusion (CBF of the bilateral temporal poles, left precentral gyri, postcentral gyri, and right middle temporal gyri) in both motor and extramotor areas at follow-up were impaired to different extents when compared with those at baseline (all P < 0.05, false discovery rate adjusted).
Para la precision interoceptiva, el desempeno se asocio positivamente con la conectividad en la CI, el operculo Rolandico, el giro superior, medial, inferior frontal y postcentral y las estructuras temporales (el giro temporal superior, HP, pHP, el PT y el GTM).
However, sleep disturbance was associated with increased thickness in the right postcentral gyrus, pericalcarine, and pars opercularis, as well as increased volume of the hippocampus and amygdala.
Posteriormente, dicha informacion es enviada al area somatosensorial primaria del cerebro, que se localiza en el giro postcentral del lobulo parietal, que es la principal area (Gallace & Spence, 2010).
In a follow-up investigation, Schweinsburg and colleagues found that binge drinking and concomitant binge drinking and substance using adolescents, when compared with marijuana-only users and control subjects, showed greater encoding-related activation in the postcentral gyrus, IPL, and SFG, and less activation in the fusiform gyrus, PHG, cuneus, precuneus, IPL, IFG, precentral gyrus, and cingulate.
There was no association between the impairment in the verb production task and the United Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) scores, but a positive corelation was found between UPDRS scores and activations in bilateral pre- and postcentral gyrus, the left frontal operculum, left supplementary motor area, and right superior temporal cortex.
Right CAU had strong positive correlations with the right postcentral gyrus (POST), anterior cingulate gyrus (ACG), hippocampus (HIP), and INS, left THA, and bilateral frontal lobe, angular gyrus (AG), supramarginal gyrus (SMG), occipital lobe, and PUT.
Glucose metabolism in responders was significantly increased after treatment in the left precentral gyrus, left postcentral gyrus, and left paracentral lobule and significantly decreased in the left hypothalamus.
[207] confirmed the pivotal role of abnormalities within these areas in impaired facial emotion recognition and also found that poor sadness, disgust, and anger identification were also related to dysfunction in other cortical regions, such as postcentral and right occipital fusiform gyri, ventral striatum, subgenual cortex, and anterior cingulate cortex.
More specifically, the electrodes were placed so that the first and the second (numbered 0 and 1 in Figure 2) lie on the motor cortex over the precentral gyrus, and the third and the fourth (numbered 2 and 3) lie on the somatosensory cortex over the postcentral gyrus and in the proximity of postcentral sulcus, respectively (Figure 2).
Increased intrinsic activity in postcentral gyrus, superior frontal gyrus, left inferior frontal gyrus, and cerebellum has been observed for elite karate players as summarized in Table 4.
The descriptive analyses show that, in the basal evaluation of younger adults, there is activity in the right hemisphere gyrus: orbitofrontal, superior temporal, and postcentral, as well as in the insula; there is also activity in the left superior, middle, and inferior temporal gyri.
