Escitalopram effects on insula and amygdala BOLD activation during emotional processing
RationaleThe amygdala and insular cortex are integral to the processing of emotionally salient stimuli. We have shown in healthy volunteers that an anxiolytic agent, lorazepam, dose-dependentlyExpand

Hippocampal structural asymmetry in unsuccessful psychopaths
BACKGROUND Structural and functional hippocampal abnormalities have been previously reported in institutionalized psychopathic and aggressive populations. This study assessed whether prior findingsExpand

Anterior Cingulate Cortex and Benefit of Predictive Cueing on Response Inhibition in Stimulant Dependent Individuals
BACKGROUND Methamphetamine dependence (MD) is associated with impaired response inhibition and with structural abnormalities and functional hypoactivity in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC). TheExpand

Impulsivity: a review.
The most debated issues in the literature of impulsivity, starting with its most common definitions are reviewed. We examine the importance of serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters and itsExpand

Association between individual differences in self-reported emotional resilience and the affective perception of neutral faces.
BACKGROUND Resilience, i.e., the ability to cope with stress and adversity, relies heavily on judging adaptively complex situations. Judging facial emotions is a complex process of daily living thatExpand

Dissociation of inhibition from error processing using a parametric inhibitory task during functional magnetic resonance imaging
Inhibition, the process that overrides and reverses the execution of a thought, action, or emotion, is important in daily life. Sixteen healthy volunteers performed a parametrically modulated motorExpand

Anxiety positive subjects show altered processing in the anterior insula during anticipation of negative stimuli
Prior neuroimaging studies support the hypothesis that anticipation, an important component of anxiety, may be mediated by activation within the insular and medial prefrontal cortices including theExpand

Subchronic SSRI administration reduces insula response during affective anticipation in healthy volunteers.
The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and insula are important neural substrates for the integration of cognitive, emotional, and physiological information, as well as the coordination of responses toExpand

Young adult stimulant users' increased striatal activation during uncertainty is related to impulsivity
TLDR
We investigated whether young adults who have used stimulants have different neural responses to uncertainty than their stimulant-naive peers. Expand

Escitalopram attenuates posterior cingulate activity during self-evaluation in healthy volunteers
Medial cortex is critically involved in self-referential processing. Little is known about how selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) affect medial cortical activity during self-assessment.Expand
