Compared with sham acupuncture, acupuncture at Waiguan in stroke patients inhibited Brodmann area 5 on the healthy side.
The brain region that such voxel/coordinates fall into is indicated a Brodmann area number, as is normally done in fMRI reports (Brodmann 1909).
In the present study, we determined the fatty acid composition of postmortem orbitofrontal cortex (OFC, Brodmann area 10) of patients with bipolar disorder (n=18) and age-matched normal controls (n=19) by gas chromatography.
Imaging studies led researchers to an area of the brain thought to be involved in depression called Brodmann Area 25, which appears to become overactive when people are profoundly sad and depressed.
Jude Medical-sponsored study were implanted with the Libra DBS system which delivers mild pulses of current from a device implanted near the collarbone to small electrical leads placed in the subcallosal cingulate (SCC) area of the brain, a structure within Brodmann Area 25.
The following PFC regions of interest (ROIs) were visually inspected and rated in coronal, saggital, and transaxial slices by two clinicians trained in neuroanatomy using the Mai Atlas of the Human Brain (Mai, Assheur & Paxinos 1997): the left and right poles (medial aspect of Brodmann area 10, anterior rostral aspect of Brodmann area 12); the left and right inferior orbits (Brodmann area 11); the left and right anterior-lateral PFC (comprised of Brodmann areas 9, 11, 45, 46, 47, and the lateral aspect of area 10); the left and right mid-lateral PFC (comprised of Brodmann areas 6, 8, and 44); and the left and right posterior frontal region (comprised of Brodmann areas 1,2,3,4, and 43).
During memory tests, patients with schizotypal personality disorder showed greater activity in Brodmann area 10 than did normal controls.
Results published in Journal of Neurosurgery build on prior research targeted at Brodmann Area 25
Research focuses on Brodmann Area 25 region of the brain to help patients with major depressive disorder for whom current treatments are not effective
The areas of the brain that showed relatively thicker cortex were the Brodmann Area (BA) 6 in the left frontal lobe and BA 22 and BA 38 in the left temporal lobe.
Updated data from Brodmann Area 25 study presented today at American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting
The Libra([R]) DBS system being evaluated in this study is designed to provide mild pulses of current to a part of the brain called Brodmann Area 25.
