YouTubing the Anterior Cingulate Cortex: Brodmann Area 25

Continuing in the series looking at material on brain regions on YouTube, I checked out some of the videos on the Anterior Cingulate Cortex also known as Brodmann Area 25. In this YouTube video Aki Nikolaidis talk through some of the functions of the ACC with reference to research paradigms. This short video shows the ‘intrinsic’ activity within networks involving the Medial Prefrontal Cortex including the ACC. This video shows the activity of brain regions that are timelocked to Chopin’s Etude in E Major (the ACC is shown in the 2d diagram at the top). In this video Professor Helen Mayburg discusses some of the research showing an important relationship between the ACC and depressive illness whilst in this video Professor James Potash briefly discusses activity in the ACC in people with Bipolar Disorder. A glioma of the Right Cingulate Gyrus is operated on in this video. This brief video from the NIMH shows grey matter loss in a number of areas including the ACC in 9 youths aged 7-22 who developed Bipolar Disorder.
