Mechanisms of change in psychosocial interventions for autism spectrum disorders.
Research into psychosocial interventions (particularly cognitive-behavior therapies and social skills training) for social-communication deficits among individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has proliferated over ...
The dynamic opponent relativity model: an integration and extension of capacity theory and existing theoretical perspectives on the neuropsychology of arousal and emotion
(Springer International Publishing Ag, 2015-07-14)
Arousal theory as discussed within the present paper refers to those mechanisms and neural systems involved in central nervous system activation and more specifically the systems involved in cortical activation. Historical ...
Underidentification of Autism Spectrum Disorder in Females: A Case Series Illustrating the Unique Presentation of this Disorder in Young Women
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is diagnosed more often in males than females, with the male-to-female gender ratio reported to be around 4.3:1 to 5:1. It is possible that the underrecognition of ASD in females partially ...

Male Carriers of the FMR1 Premutation Show Altered Hippocampal-Prefrontal Function During Memory Encoding
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2012-10-30)
Previous functional MRI (fMRI) studies have shown that fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) premutation allele carriers (FXPCs) exhibit decreased hippocampal activation during a recall task and lower inferior frontal ...
Hormones as “difference makers” in cognitive and socioemotional aging processes
Aging is associated with well-recognized alterations in brain function, some of which are reflected in cognitive decline. While less appreciated, there is also considerable evidence of socioemotional changes later in life, ...
Frontal lobe regulation of blood glucose levels: support for the limited capacity model in hostile violence-prone men.
Hostile men have reliably displayed an exaggerated sympathetic stress response across multiple experimental settings, with cardiovascular reactivity for blood pressure and heart rate concurrent with lateralized right frontal ...
The Role of Perspective-Taking on Ability to Recognize Fear
Impairment in the ability to detect certain emotions, such as fear, is linked to multiple disorders and follows a pattern of interindividual variability and intra-individual stability over time. Deficits in fear recognition ...
