In the recent past, various intrinsic connectivity networks (ICN) have been identified in the resting brain. It has been hypothesized that the fronto-parietal ICN is involved in attentional processes. Evidence for this claim stems from task-related activation studies that show a joint activation of the implicated brain regions during tasks that require(More)
Traumatic lesions near the superior margin of the brain frequently are caused by an anterior or posterior blow to the head. The injuries consist of disruptions of one or a few (with subdural bleeding) or of numerous or all (with instant death or immediate unconsciousness and later death because of simultaneous brain stem injuries) parasagittal bridging(More)
Perspective-taking has become a main focus of studies on moral judgments. Recent fMRI studies have demonstrated that individual differences in brain activation predict moral decision making. In particular, pharmacological studies highlighted the crucial role for the neuropeptide oxytocin in social behavior and emotional perception. In the present study(More)
In 34 post-mortem examinations of car occupants wearing seat belts and killed in straight or oblique head-on collisions, a thorough investigation of the spine was performed. The autopsy results were correlated with the findings in the cars in order to reconstruct the events when the occupant's body struck the interior of the car. In 2 cases the victims had(More)
Recent functional imaging studies that examined functional connectivity in the resting brain have demonstrated various intrinsic connectivity networks (ICNs). Certain patterns of over- and underactivity in various ICNs have been hypothesized to form the neural basis of psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, activity in the ICNs does not reflect ongoing mental(More)
Loss aversion is the tendency to overweight losses compared with gains in decision situations. Several studies have investigated the neurobiological background of this phenomenon and it was found that activation in the mesolimbic-mesocortical dopamine system during a gambling decision correlates with loss aversion. In a behavioral experiment with N = 143(More)
Microscopic hemorrhages in the brain stem were studied in cases of known head injury and in cases where head injury was known not to have occurred. They were found to be either strictly limited to the perivascular space or to extend into the neuropil. Those limited to the perivascular space appear to be artifacts and should not be considered when(More)
