[Activation of brain structures by fMRI data when viewing the video clips and recall of shown actions].

[Article in Russian]


In 10 healthy volunteers, brain tomograms were recorded using an fMRI scanner with a 3T-field magnet. Emotionally neutral and emotionally involving videos were used for stimulation. Registration consisted of seven series: two series of viewing a fixation point and two kinds of video clips, one series of viewing of a succession of two types of video clips, two series of watching videos with subsequent recall, and two series of viewing the fixation point followed by recall of content online. Viewing content online caused the greatest degree of metabolism increase localized in the visual cortex. This activation was more pronounced during the presentation of an emotionally involving video clip. In addition to the occipital lobe, it actively involved the temporal, parietal and, to a lesser extent, the frontal cortex. Activation of the motor cortex was detected only in some subjects. The "interference" effect in which the increase in metabolism was minimal was observed during a consequent demonstration of video-clips. Immediate recall of video-clips after viewing caused the greatest activation of the posterior frontal and motor cortex. Delayed recall activated mostly the anterior frontal cortex. There was a decrease of metabolism in the visual cortex during the recall. The greatest reduction in the visual cortex was observed during immediate recall. Immediate and delayed recall activated the structures associated with the maintenance of consciousness, memory and a system of mirror neurons.
