Meeting of minds: the medial frontal cortex and social cognition
Social interaction is a cornerstone of human life, yet the neural mechanisms underlying social cognition are poorly understood. Recently, research that integrates approaches from neuroscience andExpand

  • 1 October 2006
Implicit stereotyping and prejudice often appear as a single process in behavior, yet functional neuroanatomy suggests that they arise from fundamentally distinct substrates associated with semanticExpand

Despite global increases in diversity, social prejudices continue to fuel intergroup conflict, disparities and discrimination. Moreover, as norms have become more egalitarian, prejudices seem to haveExpand

Neurocognitive components of the behavioral inhibition and activation systems: implications for theories of self-regulation.
We examined the neurocognitive correlates of the Behavioral Inhibition and Behavioral Activation Systems (BIS/BAS) in an effort to clarify ambiguities concerning interpretations of BIS as reflectingExpand

The regulation of explicit and implicit race bias: the role of motivations to respond without prejudice.
Three studies examined the moderating role of motivations to respond without prejudice (e.g., internal and external) in expressions of explicit and implicit race bias. In all studies, participantsExpand

Neurocognitive correlates of liberalism and conservatism
Political scientists and psychologists have noted that, on average, conservatives show more structured and persistent cognitive styles, whereas liberals are more responsive to informationalExpand

Neural Signals for the Detection of Unintentional Race Bias
We examined the hypothesis that unintentional race-biased responses may occur despite the activation of neural systems that detect the need for control. Participants completed a sequential primingExpand

Individual differences in the activation and control of affective race bias as assessed by startle eyeblink response and self-report.
The activation and control of affective race bias were measured using startle eyeblink responses (Study 1) and self-reports (Study 2) as White American participants viewed White and Black faces.Expand

Individual differences in the regulation of intergroup bias: the role of conflict monitoring and neural signals for control.
Low-prejudice people vary considerably in their ability to regulate intergroup responses. The authors hypothesized that this variability arises from a neural mechanism for monitoring conflict betweenExpand

Chapter 3 Action‐Based Model of Dissonance: A Review, Integration, and Expansion of Conceptions of Cognitive Conflict
Abstract An action‐based model of dissonance is presented. This model accepts the original theory's proposal that a sufficient cognitive inconsistency causes the negative affective state ofExpand
