Brain Imaging Helps Researchers To Uncover How The Brain Processes Faces

Each time you see a person that you know, your brain rapidly and seemingly effortlessly recognizes that person by his or her face. Until now, scientists believed that only a couple of brain areas mediate facial recognition. However, Carnegie Mellon University’s Marlene Behrmann, David Plaut, and Adrian Nestor have discovered that an entire network of […]

Brain Networks Use “Cross-Modal” Connectivity For Person Recognition

A large body of neuropsychological and neuroimaging research has already determined the various brain regions responsible for face recognition and voice recognition separately, but exactly how our brain goes about combining the two different types of information (visual and auditory) is still unknown. Now a new study, published in the March 2011 issue of Elsevier’s […]

Brain Imaging Identifies Differences In Childhood Bipolar Disorder And ADHD

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are the first to use brain imaging to examine the effects of emotion on working memory function in children with pediatric bipolar disorder (PBD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). PBD and ADHD are very severe developmental disorders that share behavioral characteristics such as impulsivity, irritability, and […]

Preference For Moving Shapes Versus People Linked To Autism In Children

A 1-minute video showing computer screensavers next to videos of dancing children may prove to be a simple, inexpensive screening tool for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in toddlers. According to an NIMH-funded study, infants as young as 14 months old who had autism spent more time looking at the moving shapes than social images, in […]
