A specific neural substrate for perceiving facial expressions of disgust
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to examine the neural substrate for perceiving disgust expressions and found the neural response to facial expressions of disgust in others is thus closely related to appraisal of distasteful stimuli.
Meta-analysis of regional brain volumes in schizophrenia.
OBJECTIVE The authors' goal was to determine whether patients with schizophrenia differ from comparison subjects in regional brain volumes and whether these differences are similar in male and female
Measuring empathy: reliability and validity of the Empathy Quotient
TLDR
The Empathy Quotient is a valid, reliable scale and the different subscales may have clinical applications and moderate associations were found between the EQ and IRI subscales, suggesting concurrent validity.
Activation of auditory cortex during silent lipreading.
TLDR
Three experiments suggest that these auditory cortical areas are not engaged when an individual is viewing nonlinguistic facial movements but appear to be activated by silent meaningless speechlike movements (pseudospeech), which supports psycholinguistic evidence that seen speech influences the perception of heard speech at a prelexical stage.
The auditory hallucination: a phenomenological survey.
TLDR
A pattern emerged of increasing complexity of the auditory-verbal hallucination over time by a process of accretion, with the addition of more voices and extended dialogues, and more intimacy between subject and voice, which seemed to relate to the lessening of distress and improved coping.
