Treatment of Bipolar Depression, and Micro Changes in the Structure of Gray Matter

Bipolar Depresyon Tedavisi ve Beyaz Madde Yapısındaki Mikro Değişiklikler

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is one of the most commonly used non-invasive methods being used to determine the integrity of the white matter. DTI measurements give rise to the thoughts that there is a prevalent change in the micro structure of the gray matter in patients with bipolar disorder (BD). A chronotherapeutic combination of total sleep deprivation (TSD) and light therapy (LT) can acutely reverse depressive symptoms in nearly 60% of the patients. Moreover, it was approved as a model antidepressant treatment to research the neurobiological correlations of the fast antidepressant response.



There is no widely-accepted definition for it. In this article, I will consider it a piece of mental device that is measured by intelligence tests.

How to implement Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback Nasıl Uygulanır?

Also known as EEG (electroencephalography), Neurofeedback is a therapeutic intervention providing instant feedback through a computer-based software that evaluates the brainwave activities. The software uses audio or visual signals to re-regulate or retrain these brain signals. By responding to this process, clients learn how to re-regulate and improve their brain functions and to alleviate the symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders.

An Analysis of Racist Brains

Irkçı Beynin Analizi

Today, we are witnessing that neuroscience is being associated with all kinds of concepts. Any theme, any title and any concept, which makes it possible to form a bond with the functioning of the brain, can be associated with neuroscience. Even though racism and neuroscience seem to be quite irrelevant, the advancing technology and neuroimaging systems show that this judgment is not accurate that much.
