New PTSD study identifies potential path to treatment

A study of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—conducted by the VA National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD), National PTSD Brain Bank, and Yale University—has identified a new potential mechanism contributing to the biology .

A new study explores the neuroanatomical basis of forgiveness and finds a brain area connected with the act of forgiving unintentional harm.

New research investigates the neuroanatomical basis of forgiveness. The study examines the role of a brain area called the anterior superior temporal sulcus (aSTS) in forgiving those who make unintentional mistakes.

A study recently published in Neuron may provide new insights into how memory forms in the brain. Researchers discovered acquired olfactory memory is associated with synaptic long term potentiation, which can last for at least two weeks.

When others suffer, we empathize. Our feelings of empathy take different forms, such as distress when we imagine someone's pain and compassion as we sympathize with their condition. These different feelings involve distinct patterns of brain activity, according to a new study. Published in Neuron, the study found that the brain patterns associated with empathy are consistent and predictable across individuals.

Brain Imaging Study Reveals the Roots of Empathy. Empathy is prosocial; lack of empathy is antisocial.

Inmates with psychopathic behavior were asked to make some decisions while inside a brain scanner. The results may change our perception of psychopaths.

Physically fit children, particularly those with higher aerobic and motor abilities, exhibit more gray matter in several cortical and subcortical brain regions, according to a new study at the University of Granada (UGR) in Spain. In turn, a greater volume of fitness-related gray matter is linked to stronger academic performance. The study, published in the journal Neuroimage, is part of the Active Brains project, a randomized clinical trial involving more than 100 overweight/obese child...
