Areas in the superior portion of the right medial frontal gyrus and the left parietal lobe (inferior parietal lobule) were more active when participants responded deceptively to critical questions.
A preliminary study found that binge drinking adolescents had greater activation in the SFG, superior parietal lobule, inferior parietal lobule (IPL), and the cingulate, as well as lower activation in one cluster encompassing the cuneus, precuneus, lingual gyrus, and parahippocampal gyrus (PHG) during novel word encoding.
(a) [sup.18]F-FDG images showing hypometabolic regions in the rectal gyrus (blue arrow, x = 8, y = 42, z = -26) and inferior parietal lobule (red arrow, x = 54, y = -52, z = 50) and (b) [sup.11]C-pPIB, showing only hypoperfusion in the inferior parietal lobule (red arrow, x = 58, y = -56, z = 46).
Both MCI converters and nonconverters featured leftward lateralization in the transverse temporal gyrus, as well as rightward lateralization in the lateral orbitofrontal gyrus and inferior parietal lobule (Figure 1).
Multiple executive functions have been shown to activate inferior parietal lobule along with prefrontal cortex.
The handmade brain model showing several structures, such as (1) superior frontal gyrus; (2) middle frontal gyrus; (3) inferior frontal gyrus; (4) precentral gyrus; (5) postcentral gyrus; (6) superior parietal lobule; (7a) inferior parietal lobule--supramarginal gyrus; (7b) inferior parietal lobule angular gyrus; (8) superior temporal gyrus; (9) middle temporal gyrus and; (10) inferior temporal gyrus.
(1) This cluster extends medially to include the precuneus and caudally to include the superior occipital gyrus; it includes the most dorsal part of the inferior parietal lobule. (2) This cluster extends rostrally to include the supplementary motor area, caudally to include the precentral gyrus, and medially to include the insula.
According to fMRI analysis, the activation induced by HT7 stimulation was observed on the bilateral postcentral gyrus, inferior parietal lobule, inferior frontal gyrus, claustrum, insula, and anterior lobe of the cerebellum, as well as on the left posterior lobe of the cerebellum.
OFC: orbitofrontal cortices; vmPFC: ventromedial prefrontal cortex; ACC: anterior cingulate; AMG: amygdala; aI: anterior insula; NAcc: nucleus accumbens; red parts: sensorimotor areas; M1: primary motor area; S1: primary somatosensory area; IPL: inferior parietal lobule; PMC: premotor cortex; orange parts: visual areas, part of the occipitotemporal cortex; EBA: extrastriate body area; MT: motion integration area; EV: early visual area; PPA: parahippocampal place area; pSTS: posterior superior temporal sulcus.
Results: The main areas with increased brain activation were in frontal and parietal lobe, including left medial frontal gyrus, left inferior frontal gyrus, right middle frontal gyrus, right postcentral gyrus, and inferior parietal lobule in patients after CRT, yet no decreased brain activation was found.
