Functional atlas of emotional faces processing: a voxel-based meta-analysis of 105 functional magnetic resonance imaging studies.
TLDR
This study has detailed neurofunctional maps to use as normative references in future fMRI studies of emotional facial processing in psychiatric populations, and found selective differences between neural networks underlying the basic emotions in limbic and insular brain regions.
Activation of auditory cortex during silent lipreading.
TLDR
Three experiments suggest that these auditory cortical areas are not engaged when an individual is viewing nonlinguistic facial movements but appear to be activated by silent meaningless speechlike movements (pseudospeech), which supports psycholinguistic evidence that seen speech influences the perception of heard speech at a prelexical stage.
The psychosis high-risk state: a comprehensive state-of-the-art review.
TLDR
The relatively new field of HR research in psychosis has the potential to shed light on the development of major psychotic disorders and to alter their course and provides a rationale for service provision to those in need of help who could not previously access it.
Cognitive functioning in prodromal psychosis: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The HR state for psychosis is associated with significant and widespread impairments in neurocognitive functioning and social cognition, and subsequent transition to psychosis is particularly associated with deficits in verbal fluency and memory functioning.
Opposite Effects of Δ-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol and Cannabidiol on Human Brain Function and Psychopathology
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging in healthy volunteers found that Δ-9-THC and CBD can have opposite effects on regional brain function, which may underlie their different symptomatic and behavioral effects, and CBD's ability to block the psychotogenic effects of Δ- 9- THC.
The hubs of the human connectome are generally implicated in the anatomy of brain disorders
TLDR
Using network analysis of DTI data from healthy volunteers, and meta-analyses of published MRI studies in 26 brain disorders, Crossley et al. show that lesions across disorders tend to be concentrated at hubs.
