Cortical Regions for Judgments of Emotions and Personality Traits from Point-light Walkers
TLDR
The findings suggest that attributions of emotional states and personality traits are accomplished by partially dissociable neural systems. Expand
Ventromedial Frontal Lobe Plays a Critical Role in Facial Emotion Recognition
TLDR
The results indicate that the ventromedial frontal lobe plays a crucial role in facial emotion recognition, and suggest that this deficit may be related to the subjective experience of emotion. Expand
Bioacoustic behavior of African fishes (Mormyridae): potential cues for species and individual recognition in Pollimyrus.
TLDR
Simulated standardized courtship encounters with females revealed that males differ markedly in their apparent ability to produce sustained moans and it is suggested that this may be particularly important to females in mate selection. Expand
Distortions of mind perception in psychopathology
TLDR
This work examined the covariation of mind perception with three subclinical syndromes—autism-spectrum disorder, schizotypy, and psychopathy—and found that each presents a unique mind-perception profile. Expand
Neuroscientific Evidence for Simulation and Shared Substrates in Emotion Recognition: Beyond Faces
According to simulation or shared-substrates models of emotion recognition, our ability to recognize the emotions expressed by other individuals relies, at least in part, on processes that internallyExpand
Personhood and Neuroscience: Naturalizing or Nihilating?
TLDR
It is proposed that personhood does not correspond to any real category of objects in the world and is the product of an evolved brain system that develops innately and projects itself automatically and irrepressibly onto the world whenever triggered by stimulus features. Expand
Dissociation between emotion and personality judgments: Convergent evidence from functional neuroimaging
TLDR
Convergent evidence from fMRI is presented in support of a striking double dissociation between two superficially similar social judgment processes, emotion recognition and personality attribution, based on the same body movement stimuli. Expand
Perception of socially relevant stimuli in schizophrenia
TLDR
The findings point towards circumscribed domains of impaired social cognition in schizophrenia and suggest specific further hypotheses about the neural dysfunction that may underlie them. Expand
Impaired spontaneous anthropomorphizing despite intact perception and social knowledge.
TLDR
It is reported that a patient with bilateral amygdala damage described a film of animated shapes in entirely asocial, geometric terms, despite otherwise normal visual perception, suggesting that the human capacity for anthropomorphizing draws on some of the same neural systems as do basic emotional responses. Expand
Spared ability to recognise fear from static and moving whole-body cues following bilateral amygdala damage
TLDR
It is reported that whatever the role of the amygdala in processing whole-body fear cues, it is apparently not necessary for the normal recognition of fear from either static or dynamic body expressions. Expand
