Some studies have also indicated that HF rTMS applied to the left DLPFC
can ameliorate chronic migraine (13).
Previous studies have suggested that DLPFC
activity plays a role in regulating food cravings.
We found only one rTMS case report evaluating post-MI depression, in which the left DLPFC
was stimulated for the treatment of a 55-year-old man with depression and panic disorder 6 months after MI (27).
For Brooks, discovering the DLPFC
data was like finding a tiny vein of gold in a heap of granite.
Without these parts fully active, we risk replicating the same systems through cold-utilitarian logic employed by the DLPFC
After correcting for verbal IQ and lead exposure, SPM maps showed that, relative to controls, solvent-exposed subjects had reduced activation in areas in the ACC and bilateral DLPFC
The most important finding of Greene and colleagues and a central support for their dual-processing model of moral judgment was an increased activation of the DLPFC
(though see section 3.
Hedgcock said that the subjects' DLPFCs
were less active during the second self-control task, suggesting it was harder for the subjects to overcome their initial response.
seems to look forward to what the brain needs to do next in order to perform the task better.
The selective silencing of the DLPFC
during REM may be the reason our illogical dreams are accepted by our sleeping brains as perfectly rational.
Barch hypothesized that one of the specific roles of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC
) is the representation and maintenance of contextual information, and that disturbances of the DLPFC
lead to deficits in cognitive behavior processing, which in turn contribute to disturbances in a wide array of other cognitive domains.
Event-related functional MR/studies of the brain during the preparation of a response-after sensory processing but before actual motor response--have indicated that neuronal activation increases in the regions that underlie the preparation of a response in adults, such as the frontal eye field, DLPFC
, anterior cingulate, and lateral cerebellum.
