Brodmann area 25 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brodmann area 25 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is the area of the brain that is overactive in treatment resistant depression. I hope this works for as many people as possible. I remember a story in Phantoms in the Brain by Ramachandran that talked about a guy who was prone to panic attacks and when he was having brain surgery his doc stimulated an area and the guy felt like he was having a panic attack. It was in the same area as a heart area I think. Anyway it always interested me to see that this could happen. Maybe that is why people with MS and other brain diseases can have personality changes- areas in the brain are overactive for some reason, and they go all wonky.....
