Ventromedial prefrontal cortex. The ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) is a part of the prefrontal cortex in the mammalian brain.

Ventromedial prefrontal cortex

The ventral medial prefrontal is located in the frontal lobe at the bottom of the cerebral hemispheres and is implicated in the processing of risk and fear. It also plays a role in the inhibition of emotional responses, and in the process of decision making. Anatomy[edit] While the ventromedial prefrontal cortex does not have a universally agreed on demarcation, in most sources, it is equivalent to the ventromedial reward network of Ongur and Price.[2] This network includes Brodmann area 10, Brodmann area 14, Brodmann area 25, and Brodmann area 32, as well as portions of Brodmann area 11, Brodmann area 12, and Brodmann area 13.[3] However, not all sources agree on the boundaries of the area.

THE BRAIN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. Des scientifiques ont mis au point la première carte interactive du cerveau. Des scientifiques américains viennent de révéler la première carte détaillée du cerveau jamais réalisée, après quatre ans de recherche intensive, rapporte le New Scientist.

Des scientifiques ont mis au point la première carte interactive du cerveau

Bien sûr, il existe déjà des cartes du cerveau et ce depuis le 19e siècle, mais celles-ci décrivent des zones anatomiques (où est le lobe frontal, où est l'hippocampe, etc). Alors que l'équipe qui a créé l'Atlas du cerveau humain cherchait à descendre au niveau des gènes et des neurones individuels, comme ils l'expliquaient en 2009: «Les cartes du cerveau que nous avons actuellement sont comme ces cartes antiques du Nouveau Monde que les gens dessinaient.

Stimulating brain cells stops binge drinking, animal study finds. BUFFALO, N.Y. – Researchers at the University at Buffalo have found a way to change alcohol drinking behavior in rodents, using the emerging technique of optogenetics, which uses light to stimulate neurons.

Their work could lead to powerful new ways to treat alcoholism, other addictions, and neurological and mental illnesses; it also helps explain the underlying neurochemical basis of drug addiction. The findings, published in November in Frontiers in Neuroscience, are the first to demonstrate a causal relationship between the release of dopamine in the brain and drinking behaviors of animals. Research like this, which makes it possible to map the neuronal circuits responsible for specific behaviors, is a major focus of President Obama’s Brain Research for Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative, known as BRAIN.

Comment le cerveau assimile une nouvelle langue

Alors, qu'en est-il quand il faut maîtriser une autre langue que la sienne ? Et pourquoi est-il si difficile d'apprendre une langue appartenant à une autre famille que la sienne, alors que nous manipulons finalement assez bien d'autres codes complexes comme les mathématiques par exemple ? Comment le cerveau fait-il pour maîtriser une langue? Même si les recherches récentes montrent que de nombreuses régions de notre cerveau s'activent lors de la moindre opération mentale, les fonctions utiles au langage trouvent leur source dans deux aires qui ont donc une importance primordiale : l'aire de Wernicke et l'aire de Broca.

Neuroscience of free will

As it has become possible to study the living brain, researchers have begun to watch decision making processes at work. Findings could carry implications for our sense of agency and for moral responsibility and the role of consciousness in general.[1][2][3] Relevant findings include the pioneering study by Benjamin Libet and its subsequent redesigns; these studies were able to detect activity related to a decision to move, and the activity appears to begin briefly before people become conscious of it.[4] Other studies try to predict activity before overt action occurs.[5] Taken together, these various findings show that at least some actions - like moving a finger - are initiated unconsciously at first, and enter consciousness afterward.[6]
