Blue wavelength light exposure leads to subsequent increases in brain activity in prefrontal cortex

A new study found that blue wavelength light exposure led to subsequent increases in brain activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (VLPFC) when p...

Scientists Zero in on Brain Area Linked to 'Parkinson's Gait'

FRIDAY, Aug. 12, 2016 -- The brain's prefrontal cortex may play a role in walking difficulties that afflict Parkinson's disease patients, new research suggests. The prefrontal cortex is involved in co...

Individuals exposed to blue wavelength lights experienced faster reaction times

A new study found that blue wavelength light exposure led to subsequent increases in brain activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (VLPFC) when p...

Infants use prefrontal cortex in learning

Researchers have long thought that the region of the brain involved in some of the highest forms of cognition and reasoning – the prefrontal cortex (PFC) – was too underdeveloped in young children...

JNeurosci: Highlights from the Nov. 16 issue

(Society for Neuroscience) When you recite a phone number over and over while you search for a pen and paper to write it down, you're relying on your working memory. Activity in an area of the brain's...

Cannabis use during pregnancy may affect brain development in offspring: Thicker prefrontal cortex

Cannabis use during pregnancy is associated with abnormal brain structure in children, according to a new study. Compared with unexposed children, those who were prenatally exposed to cannabis had a t...

Bidirectional prefrontal-hippocampal interactions support context-guided memory

Prefrontal–hippocampal communication has been implicated in memory, but the temporal dynamics of information flow are not fully understood. In this study, the authors demonstrate that information fl...

New study identifies region of brain responsible for conditioned fear memory.

Despite the global medical community’s understanding of the significance of the prefrontal cortex in the consolidation of long-term memories, its role in the encoding of long-term memory remain...

Shift workers have a similar diet quality but higher energy intake than day workers.

Shift work is associated with adverse health outcomes, and an unhealthy diet may be a contributing factor. We compared diet quantity and quality between day and shift workers, and studied exposure-res...

How the prefrontal executive got its stripes.

Pathways from cortical and subcortical structures give the prefrontal cortex a panoramic view of the sensory environment and the internal milieu of motives and drives. The prefrontal cortex also recei...

Functional specialization of areas along the anterior-posterior axis of the primate prefrontal cortex.

Functional specialization of areas along the anterior-posterior axis of the lateral prefrontal cortex has been speculated but little evidence exists about distinct neurophysiological properties betwee...

Prefrontal Cortex Activation and Young Driver Behaviour: A fNIRS Study.

Road traffic accidents consistently show a significant over-representation for young, novice and particularly male drivers. This research examines the prefrontal cortex activation of young drivers and...

Striatum-Centered Fiber Connectivity Is Associated with the Personality Trait of Cooperativeness.

Cooperativeness is an essential behavioral trait evolved to facilitate group living. Social and cognitive mechanisms involved in cooperation (e.g., motivation, reward encoding, action evaluation, and ...
