Frontiers | Rostral and caudal prefrontal contribution to creativity: A meta-analysis of functional imaging data | Frontiers in Human Neuroscience | Neuroimaging | Scoop.it
Creativity is of central importance for human civilization, yet its neurocognitive bases are poorly understood. The aim of the present study was to integrate existing functional imaging data by using the meta-analysis approach.

Neuroimaging is central to the quest for a biological foundation of psychiatric diagnosis but so far has not yielded clinically relevant biomarkers for mental disorders.

Can You Lie to an fMRI?

Can You Lie to an fMRI? | Neuroimaging | Scoop.it

Actor, author, and director Alan Alda has been put up to an odd task: steal an object from a drawer, lie about it, and see if a fMRI can catch him. Neuroimaging looks like it can read our minds, but can it? ...and does it have a place in the courtroom?

Psychopaths’ Brain Patterns Lack Means for Empathy, Reveals Neuroimaging Study

Psychopaths’ Brain Patterns Lack Means for Empathy, Reveals Neuroimaging Study | Neuroimaging | Scoop.it
New functional brain scan research on psychopathy reveals strikingly distinct patterns of activation among psychopathic prisoners in response to seeing other people in painful situations, suggesting a neural basis for their lack of empathy.

 

A lack of empathy is a signature trait of psychopaths— fascinating in fiction, inexplicable in reality. Now, a new study on psychopathic prisoners reveals strikingly different brain patterns that may limit their ability to emotionally respond to other people's pain.


"This is the first time that neural processes associated with empathic processing have been directly examined in individuals with psychopathy, especially in response to the perception of other people in pain or distress," said lead researcher Jean Decety, a psychology professor at the University of Chicago, in a news release.

Preliminary investigation of the impulsive and neuroanatomical characteristics of compulsive sexual behavior

This study provides a preliminary examination of the impulsive aspects of compulsive sexual behavior (CSB). Sixteen male subjects, eight CSB patients and eight non-patient controls, completed psychometric measures of impulsivity and compulsive sexual behavior, performed a behavioral task designed to assess impulse control (Go–No Go task), and underwent diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) procedures. The results indicated that CSB patients were significantly more impulsive; whether measured by psychometric testing or the Go-No Go procedure, than controls. The results also indicate that CSB patients showed significantly higher superior frontal region mean diffusivity (MD) than controls. A correlational analysis indicated significant associations between impulsivity measures and inferior frontal region fractional anisotropy (FA) and MD, but no associations with superior frontal region measures. Similar analyses indicated a significant negative association between superior frontal lobe MD and the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Inventory. Thus, while CSB patients were more impulsive than controls, the DTI results were not consistent with impulse control disorders.
