    Neurosci Biobehav Rev . 2016
    ..Consequently, deficient paralimbic activity and self-awareness are characteristic features of many disorders with impaired oxygen homeostasis. Such disorders may therefore be treated unconventionally by targeting interneuron function...
  2. pmc Yoga lessons for consciousness research: a paralimbic network balancing brain resource allocation
    Hans C Lou
    Centre for Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, Aarhus University Aarhus, Denmark
    Front Psychol 2:366. 2011
    ..We conclude that attention, awareness, and emotion are integrated by a paralimbic network that helps to efficiently allocate brain resources to optimize behavior and help survival...
  3. doi request reprint Paradigm shift in consciousness research: the child's self-awareness and abnormalities in autism, ADHD and schizophrenia
    Hans C Lou
    Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, Aarhus University, Denmark
    Acta Paediatr 101:112-9. 2012
    ..Major derailments of this network and self-awareness occur in developmental disorders of conscious self-regulation like autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia...
  4. pmc Recurrent activity in higher order, modality non-specific brain regions: a Granger causality analysis of autobiographic memory retrieval
    Hans C Lou
    Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark
    PLoS ONE 6:e22286. 2011
    ..Our results confirm the hypothesis that stimulation may enhance causal interaction between higher order, modality non-specific brain regions, exemplified in a network of autobiographical memory retrieval...
  5. pmc Altered paralimbic interaction in behavioral addiction
    Kristine Rømer Thomsen
    Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, Aarhus University, 8000 Aarhus, Denmark
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:4744-9. 2013
    ..These consequences should be investigated in more detail in longitudinal studies...

    Morten Joensson
    Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, Aarhus University, 8000, Aarhus, Denmark Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, OX37JX Oxford, United Kingdom
    Hum Brain Mapp 36:1866-77. 2015
    ..Given that electromagnetic activity in this region is instrumental in self-awareness, this explains the specific effect of dopamine on explicit self-awareness and autonoetic metacognition...

    ..It also improves performance in a forced-choice word recognition task. These results demonstrate neurotransmitter regulation of subjective conscious experience of perception and provide evidence for a crucial role of dopamine...

    Kristine Rømer Thomsen
    Centre of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, University of Aarhus, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark Electronic address
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 45:343-9. 2014
    ..We examine the relevance of this theory for Gambling Disorder and point to predictions for future studies. The theory promises a significant contribution to the understanding of behavioral addiction and opens new avenues for treatment. ..
