A neurobiological approach to the cognitive deficits of psychiatric disorders.
Deficits in brain networks that support cognitive regulatory functions are prevalent in many psychiatric disorders. Findings across neuropsychology and neuroimaging point to broad-based impairments that cross traditional diagnostic boundaries. These dysfunctions are largely separate from the classical symptoms of the disorders, and manifest in regulatory problems in both traditional cognitive and emotional domains. As such, they relate to the capacity of patients to engage effectively in their daily lives and activity, often persist even in the face of symptomatically effective treatment, and are poorly targeted by current treatments. Advances in cognitive neuroscience now allow us to ground an understanding of these cognitive regulatory deficits in the function and interaction of key brain networks. This emerging neurobiological understanding furthermore points to several promising routes for novel neuroscience-informed treatments targeted more specifically at improving cognitive function in a range of psychiatric disorders.

Empathy is a natural trait in all human beings. However, if it is not developed through the proper social interaction, it will be not become fully developed. All humans have mirror neurons in their brain. They begin having an impact on our brain (to include personality development) from early infancy. These special brain cells play a critical role in our ability to properly socialize to include acquire languages, self and group identification, and other social skills.
Look at the brain as a multitude of competing parts. They are activated and strengthened through use. When an infant or...
When trying to understand insomnia, you should consider sleep is from a neurological point of view. In general, a sleep state represents a significant neurological reorganization. This means that many areas of the brain are substantially inactivated and others activated. For instance, the Reticular Activating System, which is located in the brain stem and has a lot to do with conscious awareness. (Also, the brain stem controls breathing, which is why meditators, who consciously modify their breathing, can substantially change their mental states.)
When modulating (i.e. inactivating the...
When a person is diagnosed with cancer and should they decide to pursue traditional allopathic treatment, most certainly they will be faced with having to endure the ravages chemotherapy. As chemotherapy is intended to attack the cancerous cells, it is very logical that these chemicals will cause numerous problems for the healthy parts of the body. The result is nausea, hair loss, and a series of mental issues such as depression, anxiety, and a general feeling of helplessness.
Most cancer patients to go this route passively accept the ravages of chemotherapy. It is very rare that someone...
