They found structural changes and increased grey matter within certain regions in the women's prefrontal cortexes, parietal lobes and midbrain areas.
Frontal and parietal cortexes are the main regions activated during the human cognitive process involved in risky decision making, and there are different levels of activation in brain areas when humans make different risk decisions in different risk situations.
Wilbrecht said the findings could potentially advance research in human addiction by helping us identify what is going awry in the frontal cortexes of drug-addicted humans, and by explaining how drug-related cues come to dominate the brain s decision-making processes.
The criterion for union was observation of callus formation in 3 cortexes in AP lateral radiographs.
The rest of the cortexes in 2 patients were aspirated with bimanuel I/A under intracameral anesthesia.
Concentric nodules may also show fcatures typical of the accretion of new layers of material (quartz-free bands, cortexes of multiple fine laminae, quartz-containing lenses/lamellae separating quartz-free ones, lens-shaped accretions; Fig.
Most notably, a 2006 Spanish study published in Nettrolmage: A Journal of Brain Function found that subjects' sensory cortexes lit up when they read certain descriptive phrases, much the same way they would if the items being described were laid physically in front of them.

Interestingly, Merabet and colleagues (2008) demonstrated that for sighted people taking part in tactile training activities (such as braille instruction and tactile domino games) for five days while continuously wearing a blindfold, their occipital cortexes were recruited for processing tactile information.
Evidence from several recent lines of empirical neuroscience suggests that the frontal and parietal cortexes and their continuous interaction with the layer-level sensory brain region play a causal role in generating perceptual states [3].
Humans have highly developed cortexes so we can make decisions.
Sensitive to survival priorities, this circuitry of care, regulated by the mentioned subcortical structures and the insular and cingulate cortexes, appears to be the ground-floor function of the nervous systems and the source of the most basic values--survival and wellbeing.
While he can spout off the Latin names for parts and sections of the brain along with some amusing translations, Barrett used more down-to-earth explanations to explain mental functions and how to get the best use of the neurons zipping around our cortexes.
