Functional magnetic resonance imaging and a categorization task show that even for complex object categories, the comparison of the outputs of different pools of selectively tuned neurons could be a general mechanism by which the human brain computes perceptual decisions.

A new, photo-based measure, the Multifaceted Empathy Test (MET), is used to assess empathy multidimensionally in a group of 17 individuals with Asperger syndrome and 18 well-matched controls, suggesting that while individuals with AS are impaired in cognitive empathy, they do not differ from controls in emotional empathy.

Findings from human neuroimaging studies in conjunction with data analysis methods that can directly link decisions and signals in the human brain on a trial-by-trial basis are reviewed to lead to a new view about the neural basis of human perceptual decision-making processes.

Functional MRI data suggest that the involvement of left posterior DLPFC in perceptual decision making transcends both task and response specificity, thereby enabling a flexible link among sensory evidence, decision, and action.
Neural Processing of Risk
In our everyday life, we often have to make decisions with risky consequences, such as choosing a restaurant for dinner or choosing a form of retirement saving. To date, however, little is known…
