Extinction Learning in Humans Role of the Amygdala and vmPFC
Understanding how fears are acquired is an important step in translating basic research to the treatment of fear-related disorders. However, understanding how learned fears are diminished may be evenExpand

Abstract:  Much of our knowledge of how reward information is processed in the brain comes from a rich animal literature. Recently, the advancement of neuroimaging techniques has allowed researchersExpand
Tracking the hemodynamic responses to reward and punishment in the striatum.
Research suggests that the basal ganglia complex is a major component of the neural circuitry that mediates reward-related processing. However, human studies have not yet characterized the responseExpand
Thinking like a trader selectively reduces individuals' loss aversion
Research on emotion regulation has focused upon observers' ability to regulate their emotional reaction to stimuli such as affective pictures, but many other aspects of our affective experience areExpand
Perceptions of moral character modulate the neural systems of reward during the trust game
Studies of reward learning have implicated the striatum as part of a neural circuit that guides and adjusts future behavior on the basis of reward feedback. Here we investigate whether prior socialExpand
The Role of the Dorsal Striatum in Reward and Decision-Making
Although the involvement in the striatum in the refinement and control of motor movement has long been recognized, recent description of discrete frontal corticobasal ganglia networks in a range ofExpand
Neural Circuitry Underlying the Regulation of Conditioned Fear and Its Relation to Extinction
Recent efforts to translate basic research to the treatment of clinical disorders have led to a growing interest in exploring mechanisms for diminishing fear. This research has emphasized twoExpand
Modulation of Caudate Activity by Action Contingency
Research has increasingly implicated the striatum in the processing of reward-related information in both animals and humans. However, it is unclear whether human striatal activation is driven solelyExpand
How emotion enhances the feeling of remembering
Studies examining memories of arousing 'real-life' events show that emotion heightens the feeling of remembering, without necessarily enhancing the objective accuracy of the memories. We measuredExpand
An fMRI study of reward-related probability learning
The human striatum has been implicated in processing reward-related information and acquisition of contingencies that lead to a reward. Expand
