Washington: In a discovery that would helpunderstand the nervous system of psychiatric patients,researchers have found "scrambled connections" between thebrain cells which process fear and emotion and other regionsof the brain lead to anxiety disorders.
They found that in healthy participants, subregions ofamygdala were linked to other parts of the brain which wereassociated with visual and auditory processing, as well aswith memory and high-level emotional and cognitive functions. However, in people with psychiatric disorders, bothamygdala regions had less connectivity to the region of thebrain responsible for determining the importance of stimuli. This means that people with the disorder have a hardertime discerning truly worrisome situations from mildannoyances, Science Daily reported. PTI
