Brain Cells Taken From Patients With Bipolar Disorder MalfunctionNews
Researchers have shown that an inflammation-promoting molecule called interleukin-6 (IL-6), which is secreted by astrocytes, may contribute to defects associated with bipolar disorder. The results highlight the potential role of astrocyte-mediated inflammatory signaling in the psychiatric disease, although further investigation is needed.Read more
Researchers Explore the Brain During Puzzle-SolvingNews
New research suggests that when problem-solving, the brain can recognize when a strategy isn't working. In studying around 200 puzzle-takers with a computer model and functional MRI (fMRI) images, researchers have learned more about the processes of reasoning and decision-making, pinpointing the brain pathway that springs into action when problem-solving goes south.
Can Watching Your Brain Waves Reduce Psychiatric Symptoms?News
In recent years, researchers have begun using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) not just for better understanding the neural bases of psychiatric illness, but also for experimental treatment of depression, ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, substance use disorder, and schizophrenia with a technique called real-time fMRI neurofeedback (rtfMRI-NF).
