Effects of Attention and Emotion on Face Processing in the Human Brain An Event-Related fMRI Study
We used event-related fMRI to assess whether brain responses to fearful versus neutral faces are modulated by spatial attention. Subjects performed a demanding matching task for pairs of stimuli atExpand

Distinct spatial frequency sensitivities for processing faces and emotional expressions
High and low spatial frequency information in visual images is processed by distinct neural channels. Using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in humans, we show dissociableExpand

Distant influences of amygdala lesion on visual cortical activation during emotional face processing
Emotional visual stimuli evoke enhanced responses in the visual cortex. To test whether this reflects modulatory influences from the amygdala on sensory processing, we used event-related functionalExpand

Activations related to “mirror” and “canonical” neurones in the human brain: an fMRI study
In the macaque monkey ventral premotor cortex (F5), "canonical neurones" are active when the monkey observes an object and when themonkey grasps that object. Expand

The role of the amygdala in emotional processing: A quantitative meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging studies
Functional neuroimaging studies have provided strong support for a critical role of the amygdala in emotional processing. However, several controversies remain in terms of whether differentExpand

Fear Conditioning Enhances Different Temporal Components of Tone-Evoked Spike Trains in Auditory Cortex and Lateral Amygdala
Single neurons were recorded in freely behaving rats during fear conditioning from areas of auditory cortex that project to the lateral nucleus of the amygdala (LA). The latency and rate ofExpand

Modulation of spatial attention by fear-conditioned stimuli: an event-related fMRI study
Stimuli that signal threat can capture subjects' attention, leading to more efficient detection of, and faster responses to, events occurring in that part of the environment. In the present study weExpand

Amygdala–Hippocampal Involvement in Human Aversive Trace Conditioning Revealed through Event-Related Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Previous functional neuroimaging studies have characterized brain systems mediating associative learning using classical delay conditioning paradigms. In the present study, we used event-relatedExpand

Auditory Processing across the Sleep-Wake Cycle Simultaneous EEG and fMRI Monitoring in Humans
We combined fMRI and EEG recording to study the neurophysiological responses associated with auditory stimulation across the sleep-wake cycle. We found that presentation of auditory stimuli producesExpand

An fMRI study of intentional and unintentional (embarrassing) violations of social norms.
The aim of this investigation was to identify neural systems supporting the processing of intentional and unintentional transgressions of social norms. Using event-related fMRI, we addressed thisExpand
