Aug. 5, 2009 — Professor Declan Murphy and colleagues Dr Michael Craig and Dr Marco Catani from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London have found differences in the brain which may provide a biological explanation for psychopathy. The research investigated the brain biology of psychopaths with convictions that included attempted murder, manslaughter, multiple rape with strangulation and false imprisonment. Using a powerful imaging technique (DT-MRI) the researchers have highlighted biological differences in the brain which may underpin these types of behaviour and provide a more comprehensive understanding of criminal psychopathy.
Figure 2 . Although emotional substrates cannot always be discerned in the behavior of nonhuman animals, many stimuli are experienced by people and animals alike and result in prototypical behavior followed by, generally, the reestablishment of an equilibruim state that might not have been achieved without the impulse precipitated by the inner state. In human experience it is common to use the term “emotion” to describe the feeling state, but in fact emotion is considerably more complex.
Nanoscale technologies have a potential revolutionary impact into the basic understanding, visualization and therapeutic applications of neuroscience. The special symposium on Nanotechnology to Neuroscience will deliver the state of the art in nanotechnology applications towards the development of therapies and pharmaceuticals for the treatment of neurological disorders, taking advantage of the nanoscale structure of neural cells (both neurons and glia). The symposium will include technologies such as quantum dots and other nanotechnologies that can visualize, measure, and track the molecular structure and dynamics of both intracellular and extracellular processes in neural cells. Technologies will be presented that are designed and used to regulate, influence, and modify cellular neural properties such as directed growth, proliferation, secretion of specific factors, differentiation, etc.

A new new brain imaging system that can identify a subject's simple thoughts may lead to clearer diagnoses for Alzheimer's disease or schizophrenia – as well as possibly paving the way for reading people's minds. Michael Greicius at Stanford University in California and colleagues used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to identify patterns of brain activity associated with different mental states. He asked 14 volunteers to do one of four tasks: sing songs silently to themselves; recall the events of the day; count backwards in threes; or simply relax. Participants were given a 10-minute period during which they had to do this.
The portion about not remembering is always what has fascinated me. When high, you focus so much clearly on the present and find the simple pleasures in things ordinarily taken for granted. That one is unable to commit an experience to their memory at the short-term level would seem to create a perpetual newness to everything.
The Samaritans are a charity, founded in 1953, which exists to provide confidential emotional support to any person, who is suicidal or despairing; and to increase public awareness of issues around suicide and depression. Trained volunteers provide this service 24 hours every day. It is free. You are guaranteed absolute confidentiality and that you will not be judged. Samaritan volunteers are not professional counselors or psychotherapists. They are caring volunteers who have been trained in the art of listening and empathy.

A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder . It is a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little or no actual danger. There are many specific phobias. Acrophobia is a fear of heights. You may be able to ski the world's tallest mountains but be unable to go above the 5th floor of an office building.
