Stephanie Miller's curator insight, March 25, 5:33 AM

   MIT neuroscientists have recently found that how well a patient with social anxiety disorder responds to cognitive behavioral therapy could be predicted using brain scans. The study tested subjects by measuring brain activity as they looked at images of both angry and neutral faces. After 12 weeks of CBT, participants were tested again. What was found was those with higher levels of activity in visual processing areas during the brain scan were more likely to benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy. 

   My question is, what are the other types of treatment for those who didn't or won't respond as well to CBT? Does this research also apply to other types of therapy? Should those who reveal lower levels of visual processing simply stick to medication? I suppose further tests are needed.

Taylor Ferguson's curator insight, May 1, 9:53 AM

This article was interesting the sense that it provided reasoning as to why some activities/jobs are subject to either more males or more females. In relation to "Half the Sky," preconceptions of women in the mentioned gender inequality laden countries worked against the advancement of the place for women. In retaliation, some of the women made more of their lives and did not let old ideas get in the way of their life.
