The Neural Basis of Economic Decision-Making in the Ultimatum Game
Functional magnetic resonance imaging of Ultimatum Game players was used to investigate neural substrates of cognitive and emotional processes involved in economic decision-making and significantly heightened activity in anterior insula for rejected unfair offers suggests an important role for emotions in decision- making.
Placebo-Induced Changes in fMRI in the Anticipation and Experience of Pain
fMRI experiments found that placebo analgesia was related to decreased brain activity in pain-sensitive brain regions, including the thalamus, insula, and anterior cingulate cortex, and was associated with increased activity during anticipation of pain in the prefrontal cortex, providing evidence that placebos alter the experience of pain.
A Neural Basis for Social Cooperation
DTI tractography of the human brain's language pathways.
The findings of DTI tractography are combined with a recent model of brain language processing to explain 6 aphasia syndromes.
The neuroscience of social decision-making.
The role of the prefrontal cortex in prudent social decision-making, at least when social environments are relatively stable, is highlighted and recent progress has been made in understanding the neural bases of individual variation in social decided-making.
The neural correlates of theory of mind within interpersonal interactions
The evolution of the arcuate fasciculus revealed with comparative DTI
Compared cortical connectivity in humans, chimpanzees and macaques and found a prominent temporal lobe projection of the human arcuate fasciculus that is much smaller or absent in nonhuman primates, which may be relevant to the evolution of language.
Neural Correlates of Social Cooperation and Non-Cooperation as a Function of Psychopathy
The primate neocortex in comparative perspective using magnetic resonance imaging.
In this study we use neuroanatomic data from living anthropoid primate subjects to test the following three hypotheses: (1) that the human neocortex is significantly larger than expected for a…
