Neural systems for recognizing emotion
  • R. Adolphs
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Current Opinion in Neurobiology
  • 1 April 2002
Recognition of emotion draws on a distributed set of structures that include the occipitotemporal neocortex, amygdala, orbitofrontal cortex and right frontoparietal cortices. Recognition of fear mayExpand

Recognizing emotion from facial expressions: psychological and neurological mechanisms.
  • R. Adolphs
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Behavioral and cognitive neuroscience reviews
  • 1 March 2002
Recognizing emotion from facial expressions draws on diverse psychological processes implemented in a large array of neural structures. Studies using evoked potentials, lesions, and functionalExpand

The neurobiology of social cognition
  • R. Adolphs
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Current Opinion in Neurobiology
  • 1 April 2001
Recent studies have begun to elucidate the roles played in social cognition by specific neural structures, genes, and neurotransmitter systems. Cortical regions in the temporal lobe participate inExpand

Emotion processing and the amygdala: from a 'low road' to 'many roads' of evaluating biological significance
A subcortical pathway through the superior colliculus and pulvinar to the amygdala is commonly assumed to mediate the non-conscious processing of affective visual stimuli. We review anatomical andExpand

The human amygdala in social judgment
Studies in animals have implicated the amygdala in emotional, and social, behaviours, especially those related to fear and aggression. Although lesion, and functional imaging, studies in humans haveExpand

A Role for Somatosensory Cortices in the Visual Recognition of Emotion as Revealed by Three-Dimensional Lesion Mapping
Although lesion and functional imaging studies have broadly implicated the right hemisphere in the recognition of emotion, neither the underlying processes nor the precise anatomical correlates areExpand

II. Hypersociability in Williams Syndrome
Studies of abnormal populations provide a rare opportunity for examining relationships between cognition, genotype and brain neurobiology, permitting comparisons across these different levels ofExpand

Abnormal Processing of Social Information from Faces in Autism
Autism has been thought to be characterized, in part, by dysfunction in emotional and social cognition, but the pathology of the underlying processes and their neural substrates remain poorlyExpand

Cortical Systems for the Recognition of Emotion in Facial Expressions
This study is part of an effort to map neural systems involved in the processing of emotion, and it focuses on the possible cortical components of the process of recognizing facial expressions. WeExpand
