Progress Towards Mammalian Whole-Brain Cellular Connectomics
From the Intro:Since its inception, neuroscience has attempted to interpret brain organization and function without a detailed map of its total neuronal constituents and their complete inter-connectivities at the required synaptic resolution. Without such a map, a whole-brain cellular connectome, it is highly improbable that the precise neural computations underlying brain and behavior will ever be adequately understood.Read the full article here (Source: BrainTechSci)

Adding mindfulness to the PTSD therapist’s toolkit
—– Soldiers who return home in casts and caskets are not the only ones struck down by the trauma of war. Many young military men and women carry emotional wounds far beyond the battlefield in the form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This psychologically crippling condition cannot be treated with bandages or surgery, and often lasts for years on end. But new research has now demonstrated that mindfulness—a non-judgmental awareness of our thoughts and feelings—might be a useful tool for veterans battling PTSD. Rather than being stuck in disturbing memories and negative thoughts, they can use...

Is Mental Health ready to start transitioning towards measurable brain circuits, away from subjective symptoms?
To Diagnose Mental Illness, Read the Brain (Scientific American): Although scientists have learned a lot about the brain in the last few decades, approaches to treating mental illnesses have not kept up. As neuroscientists learn more about brain circuits, Stanford psychiatrist Amit Etkin foresees a time when diagnoses will be based on brain scans rather than symptoms…(Etkin says that) We understand behavior is essentially underpinned by brain circuits. That is, there are circuits in the brain that determine certain types of behaviors and certain types of thoughts and feelings. That’s probably the most useful w...

Brain timing shares significant genetic component with intelligence
Interesting behavioral genetics study that demonstrates that millisecond temporal processing in the brain has a significant genetic component that is also shared with general intelligence. This (and other) research continues to indicate the importance of investigating "brain timing" as an important component of cognitive functioning. Also, this research indicates that this association is not all genetic--which suggests that interventions that might produce changes in basic neural timing mechanisms may increase cognitive efficiency/functioning.Click on images   Posted with Blogsy from my iPad mini 4...

How to obtain WJ IV scores for these two broad abilities is presented, as well as other possible Gl and Gr tests indicators from the CHC cross-battery literature.A pdf copy of this set of slides, one per page, can be downloaded here.   CHC model...
