Association of basal forebrain volumes and cognition in normal aging
The basal forebrain cholinergic system (BFCS) is known to undergo moderate neurodegenerative alterations during normal aging and severe atrophy in Alzheimer's disease (AD). It has been suggested thatExpand

Neural networks underlying trait aggression depend on MAOA gene alleles
Low expressing alleles of the MAOA gene (MAOA-L) have been associated with an increased risk for developing an aggressive personality. This suggests an MAOA-L-specific neurobiological vulnerabilityExpand

Central serotonin modulates neural responses to virtual violent actions in emotion regulation networks
Disruptions in the cortico-limbic emotion regulation networks have been linked to depression, anxiety, impulsivity, and aggression. Altered transmission of the central nervous serotonin (5-HT)Expand

Cortico‐limbic connectivity in MAOA‐L carriers is vulnerable to acute tryptophan depletion
A gene–environment interaction between expression genotypes of the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) and adverse childhood experience increases the risk of antisocial behavior. However, the neuralExpand

Multisensory integration of dynamic emotional faces and voices: method for simultaneous EEG-fMRI measurements
Combined EEG-fMRI analysis correlates time courses from single electrodes or independent EEG components with the hemodynamic response. Implementing information from only one electrode, however, mayExpand

Interpretation of Social Interactions: Functional Imaging of Cognitive-Semiotic Categories During Naturalistic Viewing
Social interactions arise from patterns of communicative signs, whose perception and interpretation require a multitude of cognitive functions. The semiotic framework of Peirce’s Universal CategoriesExpand

Perceived Conventionality in Co-speech Gestures Involves the Fronto-Temporal Language Network
Face-to-face communication is multimodal; it encompasses spoken words, facial expressions, gaze, and co-speech gestures. In contrast to linguistic symbols (e.g., spoken words or signs in signExpand

Emotional valence and spatial congruency differentially modulate crossmodal processing: an fMRI study
Salient exogenous stimuli modulate attentional processes and lead to attention shifts–even across modalities and at a pre-attentive level. Stimulus properties such as hemispheric laterality andExpand

Serotonergic Contributions to Human Brain Aggression Networks
Aggressive behavior is associated with dysfunctional frontolimbic emotion regulation circuits. Recent findings suggest serotonin as a primary transmitter for prefrontal amygdala control. However, theExpand
