Xingbao Li and colleagues at Medical University of South Carolina examined cravings triggered by smoking cues in 16 nicotine-dependent volunteers who received one session each of high frequency or sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation applied over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
We observed an age-related increase in strategic decision-making between ages 6 to 13 years and showed that changes in bargaining behavior were best accounted for by age-related differences in impulse-control abilities and underlying functional activity of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, a late-maturing brain region linked with self Control, Steinbeis explained.
At the same time, another portion of their brains, called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), suppresses unwanted information that doesn't jibe with the scientists' preexisting theories.
19) Computer simulation showed that activity in the amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex is related to unconditioned stimulus predictability, while activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and insula is accounted for by attention-modulated representation of conditioned stimuli.
Therefore, a reactivation of tinnitus following dorsolateral prefrontal cortex rTMS, which occurred in the 2 cases we described, could be the result of (1) a disruption of the temporal-prefrontal neocortical network, which is considered to be critical for the transient storage of auditory stimuli (28,29) and which also could modulate tinnitus storage, and (2) inhibition of the prefrontal activity that would result in a decrease in frontal inhibition of the tinnitus generated in the auditory cortex.
