Several parts of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, amygdala, striatum, and insula, work together to regulate emotions, and […]
Identifying deception is something humans have attempted to do for centuries. Initial techniques, such as facial expression interpretation, were developed without technology.

More recently, a powerful technique, functional magnetic resonance […]
Henry Gustav Molaison (1926-2008) was perhaps the best-known and most studied patient in the history of neuroscience. Henry became the subject of a scientific article which would become one of the most cited articles in the history of medical literature. At around the age of ten, Henry began having epileptic seizures, which became more severe […]
Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) may be possible, and the roots lie in understanding the biosocial model. This model originated with Marsha Linehan’s theory, which argued that there were both social and biological reasons that BPD develops.
