Type I and Type II error concerns in fMRI research: re-balancing the scale.
Simulations demonstrate that combined intensity and cluster size thresholds such as P < 0.005 with a 10 voxel extent produce a desirable balance between Types I and II error rates, and recommend a greater focus on replication and meta-analysis rather than emphasizing single studies as the unit of analysis for establishing scientific truth.

Does Rejection Hurt? An fMRI Study of Social Exclusion
A neuroimaging study examined the neural correlates of social exclusion and tested the hypothesis that the brain bases of social pain are similar to those of physical pain, suggesting that RVPFC regulates the distress of socialclusion by disrupting ACC activity. Expand

This review examines four broad areas of research within social cognitive neuroscience: (a) understanding others, (b) understanding oneself, (c) controlling oneself, and the processes that occur at the interface of self and others, and highlights two core-processing distinctions that can be neurocognitively identified across all of these domains.

Why rejection hurts: a common neural alarm system for physical and social pain
Evidence suggesting that the anterior cingulate cortex plays a key role in the physical-social pain overlap is reviewed and it is suggested that the physical and social pain circuitry might share components of a broader neural alarm system. Expand
Tools of the Trade Type I and Type II error concerns in fMRI research : rebalancing the scale
Statistical thresholding (i.e. P-values) in fMRI research has become increasingly conservative over the past decade in an attempt to diminish Type I errors (i.e. false alarms) to a levelExpand
Intuition: a social cognitive neuroscience approach.
It is concluded that the caudate and putamen, in the basal ganglia, are central components of both intuition and implicit learning, supporting the proposed relationship. Expand
Putting Feelings Into Words
The results suggest that affect labeling may diminish emotional reactivity along a pathway from RVLPFC to MPFC to the amygdala, which is mediated by activity in medial prefrontal cortex. Expand
Neural Correlates of Dispositional Mindfulness During Affect Labeling
Objective: Mindfulness is a process whereby one is aware and receptive to present moment experiences. Although mindfulness-enhancing interventions reduce pathological mental and physical healthExpand
Watching social interactions produces dorsomedial prefrontal and medial parietal BOLD fMRI signal increases compared to a resting baseline
It is suggested that the default state areas may participate in the processing of social relations in concert with regions previously identified as critical for social cognition that were also activated by the authors' stimuli, including the inferior frontal cortex, the superior temporal cortex, and the fusiform gyrus.
