Researchers have developed a new study which measures the brain activity in the frontal regions of the brain. This part is said to be responsible for the differences in emotions with respect to our personality. Of course an imbalance in this area could indicate an imbalbnce in emotion and motivation.
Researchers are concerned with how our emotionality relates to alcohol dependance. They have been using an EEG (electroencephalogram) to test the brain activitiy of the individuals in their test group. A person with depression will have a condition known as EEG asymmetry. The key is to figure out if this is related to alcoholism.
"We found that alcoholics had lower brain activity in left frontal areas relative to right frontal areas, as measured by EEG, when compared to nonalcoholics," said Hayden. "This is interesting because left frontal activity may reflect brain systems involved in acquiring rewards and the positive moods we feel when we obtain a desirable object or goal. Conversely, right frontal activity may be involved in inhibiting behavior in the face of negative consequences and the anxiety we feel in those circumstances." This imbalance, she speculated, may be genetically based -- at least partially.An important next step in this line of research would be to see whether the same is true of frontal brain activity in alcoholism, possibly by looking at the children of alcoholics."
I THOUGHT THAT PEOPLE BECOME ALCOHOLICS BECAUSE THEY ARE DEPRESSED.

Dakota Fanning movie controversy
Jan. 23 - Child star Dakota Fanning is at the centre of a controversy over her portrayal a girl who is raped in the film 'Hounddog'.
Child actress Dakota Fanning spoke to Reuters at the Sundance Film Festival about her role in the controversial film 'Hounddog', which features a scene in which her character is raped.
Critics have blasted the film, saying that children should not be subjected to engaging in "seamy portrayals" for commercial purposes.
ACTRESSES LIKE JODI FOSTER AND BROOKE SHIELDS PLAYED ROLES AS CHILD PROSTITUTES . bROOKE SHIELDS MOST CONTROVERSIAL MOVIE WAS "BLUE LAGOON" IF ANYONE REMEMBERS THAT ONE.

Justin Timberlake makes a rebound!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Actress Jessica Biel reportedly flew out to the Sundance Film Festival on Wednesday to spend time with new love interest Justin Timberlake.
"Jessica was picked up in her chauffer-driven Volkswagen Touareg car and instantly went to visit Timberlake when she got into Park City," a source tells Perez Hilton.
Biel, most recently seen playing a young soldier returning from Iraq in the film Home of the Brave, doesn't have a movie screening at the festival, although Timberlake's new film, Black Snake Moan, premiered on Wednesday.
The athletic twosome spent the following day snowboarding together, a Biel insider tells Perez.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO REBOUND WHY NOT MAKE IT JESSICA BIEL??
