Oxytocin likely influences self- and other-related cognition by modulating the brain network activity involved in the shared neural representations of others and self . Self-recognition and the sense of self-ownership are among the mechanisms implicated in functional empathic responses.
These kind of investigations would be crucial to furthering our understanding of oxytocin's role in the relationship between self-other distinction and the ability to shift from self-oriented to other-person-oriented perspectives, as well as its role in self-other distinction, and prosocial behavior, especially in light of the close link between interoception and empathy.
This research area (Oxytocin’s implication on self-consciousness) is still in its infancy and further studies are warranted
Pineal melatonin rhythms and production decrease in aging and in AD. Melatonin acts as an effective free radical scavenger and indirect antioxidant, i.e. it stimulates antioxidative enzymes, and functions as neuroprotector that may be of importance in aging and in Alzheimer disease (AD)
The primary function of the pineal gland is to produce melatonin. Melatonin has various functions in the central nervous system, the most important of which is to help modulate sleep patterns. Melatonin production is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light
Taken together, these results suggest that shape completion relies upon a distributed but densely interconnected network coalition that is centered in the secondary visual network, coordinated by the dorsal attention network, and inclusive of at least three other networks.
Successful interactions with the environment depend on accurate spatial representations of both the external world and of our body acting upon it. The coding of space is, therefore, an essential requirement for both motor and perceptual systems.
Ray’s chakra based five-axis model for brain-body-behavior has a unique influence in the field of modern neuropsychology and quantum neuroscience. The framework incorporates the modern neuropsychology, quantum neuroscience and molecular biology. T
This paper reviews these principles of brain-body organization and introduce the 114- chakra system based neuropsychology theory of Saint Amit Ray for understanding individual differences in the general factor of intelligence and behavior based on brain-body 114-chakra topology and network dynamics of the human brain-body interactions.
The results showed a positive association between mentally passive sedentary behavior and risk of depression, and the increment of time spent on sedentarily watching television could increase the risk of depression
When stratified by specific sedentary behavior, we found that watching television was positively associated with the risk of depression, whereas using a computer was statistically non-significant
