Washington: Scientists have nailed down the area of the brain that controls impulsive behaviour and say that it can be controlled with training.
This showed that impulsivity is represented, in a specific brain region, by a change in communication between neurons.Children who have difficulty learning to control a response often have behavioural problems which continue into adulthood, said Cella Olmstead, lead investigator on the study.She noted that impulsivity is a primary feature of many disorders including addiction, ADHD, obsessive compulsive disorder and gambling.Identifying the brain region and mechanism that controls impulsivity is a critical step in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.The findings were recently published in The Journal of Neuroscience.
