The Neural Bases of Cognitive Conflict and Control in Moral Judgment
Traditional theories of moral psychology emphasize reasoning and "higher cognition," while more recent work emphasizes the role of emotion. The present fMRI data support a theory of moral judgmentExpand

Understanding evaluation of faces on social dimensions
People reliably and automatically make personality inferences from facial appearance despite little evidence for their accuracy. Although such inferences are highly inter-correlated, research hasExpand

Implicit Trustworthiness Decisions: Automatic Coding of Face Properties in the Human Amygdala
Deciding whether an unfamiliar person is trustworthy is one of the most important decisions in social environments. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to show that the amygdala is involvedExpand

Facial expression and gaze-direction in human superior temporal sulcus
The perception of facial expression and gaze-direction are important aspects of non-verbal communication. Expressions communicate the internal emotional state of others while gaze-direction offersExpand

Distributed representations of dynamic facial expressions in the superior temporal sulcus.
Previous research on the superior temporal sulcus (STS) has shown that it responds more to facial expressions than to neutral faces. Here, we extend our understanding of the STS in two ways. First,Expand

Probabilistic atlases for face and biological motion perception: An analysis of their reliability and overlap
Neuroimaging research has identified several category-selective regions in visual cortex that respond most strongly when viewing an exemplar image from a preferred category, such as faces. RecentExpand

Differential activation of frontoparietal attention networks by social and symbolic spatial cues
Perception of both gaze-direction and symbolic directional cues (e.g. arrows) orient an observer’s attention toward the indicated location. It is unclear, however, whether these similar behavioralExpand

The role of the amygdala in implicit evaluation of emotionally neutral faces.
The amygdala is involved in the evaluation of novel stimuli, including faces. We examined whether the amygdala is engaged during the evaluation of emotionally neutral faces along trait-specificExpand

Connectivity Analysis Reveals a Cortical Network for Eye Gaze Perception
Haxby et al. (Haxby JV, Hoffman EA, Gobbini MI. 2000. The distributed human neural system for face perception. Trends Cogn Sci. 4:223–233.) proposed that eye gaze processing results from anExpand

Common Neural Mechanisms for the Evaluation of Facial Trustworthiness and Emotional Expressions as Revealed by Behavioral Adaptation
People rapidly and automatically evaluate faces along many social dimensions. Here, we focus on judgments of trustworthiness, which approximate basic valence evaluation of faces, and test whetherExpand
